If you want an exceptional meal, this is the place. The food is amazing and the service goes along with it. We recently hosted our family who were visiting for the Christmas holiday and none of us were disappointed. From starters to salads, entrees, wines and dessert it was SO good. Take note that menu items are al a carte... More

We both ordered the tenderloin steak, & they were both done to perfection. The service was prompt & friendly; the food excellent. The menu is a bit limited, but the food is expertly prepared.

We were there recently and I don't understand why it is not packed. The chef is creative from drinks to desserts, and I would think there would be many "foodies" there as well as those wanting fine dining. As usual some of the T/A questions aren't easy to answer. Were I to have a business meeting there, the menu would... More

The Loft is a delightful restaurant on the waterfront in Bandon. The setting is intimate and relaxed, the staff friendly and helpful. We had dinner there and the food was outstanding - fish done perfectly, creative salads with fresh local ingredients and a dessert to die for (we had the chocolate tart which was recommended by the waitress). We will... More

Some of the best crab cakes I've ever had! They were served crispy on the outside, filled with mostly crab and served on puddles of tartar sauce. Three were offered as a small plate, but I chose to have them as my entree. I also enjoyed the Carmel Chocolate Tart. The chocolate topping with a gooey delicious carmel filling was... More

Upon being seated we were told of the soup "special" -a tomato bisque which we both ordered. Unbeknownst to us this "special" was priced at $14 U.S. which was not mentioned initially. The crab cakes were quite good and the wine selection was average. We found the server to be very unprofessional and inattentive and when asked about the price... More

After requesting feed back related to requiring a reservation mid week, I was advised it would be still be advisable. As it worked out that was good advice the dinning room is quite small & does fill up especially around sunset. We were seated at a really nice sea view table & as the sun was sinking in the West...

By far the best restaurant in Bandon! You get exactly what you pay for! While most restaurants in Bandon you pay for overpriced frozen food, not at The Loft! Fresh, local and made with love! It never disappoints, you cannot go wrong with ordering. EVERYTHING is perfection! Chef Kali is an artist! I appreciate the detail to each drink and... More

This was a special restaurant on many levels. The food was exceptional--fresh, local and well-prepared by the chef/owner. The house white wine was a delightful Willamette Valley pinot gris. Creme brûlée dessert and French press coffee were a fabulous ending to this memorable meal. And last but not least, our server was attentive and helpful without being overbearing.

Had friends in town golfing at Bandon Dunes and their caddie recommended The Loft. So glad he did. Our experience was perfect in every way. The service was top notch. Although small, the menu selections were brimming with creative uses of fresh local ingredients. The view of the harbor and river were excellent. Will return soon.
