The Loft Bistro Restaurant Review

: Located adjacent to The Loft, but offering its own separate menu, is The Loft Bistro on the fourth floor of Montage Laguna Beach. Serving on a first-come, first-served basis, the restaurant opens its doors at 3 p.m. The space features a bar area, relaxed dining room and a veranda with heat lamps. As at the neighboring restaurant, chef Michael Campbell oversees the short and simple bill of fare. Shareable starters include bacon-wrapped dates with goat cheese, steamed clams with Chardonnay butter, and maple-glazed chicken wings. Main dishes range from beer-battered fish & chips with malt vinegar aïoli to grilled flatiron steak slathered in compound butter. Be sure to browse the selection of signature and classic cocktails, including the Aviation and Twelve Mile Limit.
