Studio Restaurant at Montage
Laguna Beach, CA 92651
OC Weekly's Description
Each staff member will address you by name. When you ask
where the restrooms are, a server won't just point the way; she'll happily
walk you there. Leave a crumpled napkin on your chair, and you'll return to
find it has been replaced with a neatly folded one on the table. On the food
front, Craig Strong will cook a chef's tasting meal that completes the
experience, one that will match the extravagant cost. But if we haven't
mentioned the prices until now, it's because they're almost beside the point.
But with the food, the atmosphere and, most of all, the service, your visit will be
worth every cent.
The Studio - absolute perfection Laguna is a place I wont share with many (just one person, actually). Its one of my favorite places on the planet and it is swarming with delectable fare.

The Studio - absolute perfection Laguna is a place I wont share with many (just one person, actually). Its one of my favorite places on the planet and it is swarming with delectable fare. There is, however, one incredible gem amidst the coast that stands out among the rest - The Montage Hotel and Resort. The minute you pull into the valet you know youre about to experience luxury. One Saturday night, brisk air seeping through my skin and into my bones, I stepped down some stairs, watched a floating moon made of Christmas lights, and entered into a world of sensuality and culinary treats. Greeted by the Chef himself (Craig), it was an experience to remember. Seated at the Community Table (A table anyone can sit at and dine together), I ordered from the Chefs Tasting Menu, which included such tasty goodness as Hamachi Sashimi, Duck Confit Empanadas, Morbier, and a delectable variety of desserts. My palette and stomach were in ecstasy. Couple that with Toshina, the most incredible bartender ever, who makes insatiable beverages that can transcend you and you have struck the jackpot of fine fare. The Pacific never tasted - or felt - so good.
Tips from foursquare
No other restaurant in Southern California has this mesmerizing view, and this happy combination of setting, great food, polished service and deep wine list.
There is nothing better than a spa weekend here with your lover. Water, sun, good food, spa treatments, massage, and a great gym at The Montage. - Nikki

The view from the cliffs overlooking the ocean reminds us of Positano.
