Beef n' Reef
Went for happy hour cocktails and dinner. Although the entree (veal limone) was good the combo of a prix fixe including an appetizer, was weak , I had a Cesar salad , which was a 4” bowl with a few pieces of lettuce and 4 croutons , the dressing on the side was from a bottle that’s it!
They also had a oyster special, blue points for $1.50 each ? They were actually west coast , dry and metallic .
The happy hour pricing on cocktails was half off, sounds good, however there is no one in Lauderdale by the sea who charges $18 for a cocktail .
Was very dissatisfied.
This place is like a mom and pop diner! Had to walk out and find another restaurant! The entertainment was like amateur karaoke! I would never go back to this place...
Went on Valentines Day and found would only serve a choice of 3 entrees. Service was not up to par for a restaurant of that price point. Food was underseasoned. Refills on bread or drink never offered. The piano player was very good.
I wish I was informed on their "limited" menu on Valentines Day (3 entrees) when I made my reservations.
We all had a great meal. Waiter was wonderful, drinks were half off for happy hour!!
We enjoyed the “Happy Hour Dinner Specials”. Our server Jacque was wonderful.
Great place to dine and listen to great music.very enjoyable and professional service and staff makes you feel special.franco welcomes you when you arrive and thanks you when you leave.
Thought there would be live music. Web site said there would be.
Most staff wore their mask. One bartender did not use hers at all, and Managment seemed to not notice.
I asked her to lower her shield, and that lasted less than two minutes.
Love this place. Always great service and excellent food. Best tiramisu!!
Such a fun atmosphere on one side with live piano player and sing along if your upnfor it and a romantic quite side for dinner. What nice find in Lauderdale bybthe sea.
This place is a delight! Excellent service, food and ambiance. The only reason I gave 4 stars overall is because we did not have the opportunity to order a salad to have before dinner and would have liked to have one.
We ordered Branzino and Strip steak Branzinno is served as a whole fish I got 2 3-4oz pieces one with a tail.the steak was so tough it could bearly be cut with a steak knife when I demonstrated the toughness Our reward was nothing taken off the bill.STAY AWAY.
It was a great place....probably the best alfredo sauce I have ever had! The staff were all very friendly and the ambience was wonderful. I am looking forward to going back!
If you want plain old Italian, you would probably like this place. However, if you think this is a Steak & Seafood restaurant, do not waste your time. I should have known when the bread basket came and it was stale and had used butter containers in it! Yuck!
Our food & service were excellent. Currently, they have an extended happy hour which was awesome. We loved the live music. Sit at the bar tables if you like your music volume higher and in the dining room for more of a background music level. Their food does great for carryout too. We’ll be back!
Amazing place !!! Love it ! Going back for sure 😀😀😀 food excellent and great happy hours
we sat in the "lounge" area to hear & enjoy the entertainment which was the main reason for choosing where to go on a Saturday nite. service was prompt, attentive & cheerful.
food was great and was fresh & hot when arrived at table. All special requests were accommodated .
Nice place just a block from the beach. Great happy hour prices, good food and live music.
Great experience, awesome prices and great live music. This will become a regular spot
Great food, great prices, great service, nicest sit down restaurant in Lauderdale by the Sea.
The food and service was above normal and the music was very good and not head banging mellow and enjoying.
George and his Staff took excellent care of us. There was enough left over for lunch the next day.
The food did not justify the prices. Surf and turf was not good, although the short rib was tender and moist. The nicest thing was the ambiance and the piano music in the background. Next time a visit to the bar.
We had a good time and the meals were mostly fine. My steak was over cooked however and the replacement was tough (though I didn’t complain a second time) service and atmosphere ok but I found the prices high considering there are 5 star steakhouses nearby offering the same fare at a better price.
Carlos & Josh were wonderful!
My rib eye steak had a lot of fat on it for a $48 piece of meat. I know rib eye has fat but I have never seen one like the one I had. Spinach was to salty and to much garlic.
Great experience...the owner and hostess made us feel like we were at home. Food was outstanding.
Slow, carrots not cooked
I tried this after reading some Yelp reviews and thought I would give it a shot. I thought if they had the audacity to charge 50-80 for steak and have 350 bottle of wine options they were pretty serious about their restaurant’s success. I hope management figures out the food, service and value issues fast. I can’t recommend it.
Excellent service and delicious food in a luxurious atmosphere. We will be back.
New place , not up to speed. Not sparkling clean, food was ok service was meh.. particularly for an 85% empty spot on a Saturday. Piano player was really good.
Nice atmosphere good service
Hospitality was good, but food was ok, they ran out of certain items on menu. Took food a long time to come out then it was not cooked right either. Place looks good inside and staff is nice but most likely will never go back.
Delicious food and very attentive staff, we can really recommend this newly opened restaurant!
We thought it was good food and atmosphere. Just think they are still working out the bugs in the new restaurant. Bar area needed more servers, since bar was packed.
