Coastal Fine Dining


Taste and Presentation Delight Diners at Studio

The Montage brand has always been synonymous with luxury and nowhere is this more evident than at the Montage Laguna Beach. The sweeping views of the Pacific from the lobby do more than just hint that a special experience awaits.



Mention Sabatino to just about any ingrained Newporter - or possibly even newbies - and witness that “eyes light up” recognition of the spot for authentic and delicious Italian fare. Add to that, charming atmosphere (think patio dining with checkered tablecloths), great service (regulars have bonded with the staff and even invited them to their vacation homes) and the to-die-for signature sausage dish, the most often requested menu item and available to take home and cook, and you will get the flavor of what is special about this favored Lido dining establishment.

Recipe for Success 

When a new restaurant opens in the neighborhood, it is always cause for celebration. But when the chef is a highly touted and much loved figure in the culinary world, the excitement grows exponentially.
