We appreciate the service, gorgeous view, drinks, and atmosphere here (quiet patio-no music). All top notch. The short rib poulet was incredible flavors of crisp garlic fries, carmelized onions, savory short rib with a mild spiced aoli (no gravy which let the fries be crisp)....More

Another great place in town with an incredible view. I've been lucky enough to have eaten at all the restaurants at the Montage at one point or another. The Loft is definitely worth it too.
