It was not my first time at Rib N Reef.

Here’s the pros:
-Quick services
-Good desserts
-Good quality steak

Cons:
-Even tho the steak was a good quality steak it wasn’t seasoned at all and no sauce were provided and they charge more for sauce on a steak of that price.
-Waiter was nice but sometime condescending

Usually I take the Cajun Salmon or a mix of their appetizers with a dessert and it’s always delicious, but for a place that is all about the steak experience when you take a steak of that price it should be at another level.

PS : Their cocktails are really good

We were amazed by the quality of service provided by our waiter, his name was Mathieu. He handmade us an outstanding Ceasar salad, catered to our every need, and seriously made the entire experience that more enjoyable! His wine recommendation was spot on, and paired perfectly with our meal. The food was also quite excellent, a big thanks to the team in the kitchen!

Our reservation was for Valentines day, unfortunatly after waiting over 2 hours, our order got lost somehow. We cancelled the main course at this point due to long wait. The staff was very nice and apologetic but he whole night became a disappointment . I don't think we will be going back.

Great Cesar salad! Good sides. Ordered medium rare steak, arrived very rare. Steak not seasoned properly. No salt. Not a good tasting steak. Overrated. First and last visit.

Étant étranger, nous n'avons pas très apprécié "l'intrusion" de policiers en uniformes pour contrôler certains clients faisant l'objet d'un suivi particulier aux dires de voisins de table... Ce n'est pas l'idée que l'on peut se faire d'une soirée décontractée même si cette intervention n'a pas eu l'air de déranger, outre mesure, les consommateurs concernés.

Food was amazing but service was disapointing. We had received a gift card for Christmas, waiter and manager were not sure if they could honor it, they initially refused, and then finally accepted when we argued that it did not make sense that I can't use a gift card that I had as a gift. I would not recommend to buy a gift card from this restaurant, plus the waiter dared to mention that we had to give him a tip on the full amount and not the new amout minus the gift card. We were planning anyways to give him a tip on the full amount but this comment was really impolite and not proper especially with all the trouble we had to use the gift card.

My family and I dined at the Rib’N’Reef the other night. We had Giovanni and Daniel as our professional waiters. They were simply the best and they put on a show for us. They prepared our Cesar salad, Brazilian Coffee, and Crepes Suzette table side. It was simply outstanding. I highly recommend this restaurant and in particular these two waiters. They were the definition of professional and they weee passionate about their jobs and they delivered on the best dining experience for my family.

The wine is list is over priced as well as the menu items. Rib N Reef serves the only wedge salad I have seen without bacon. My meal was good but not exceptional or equal the price paid. Service is very good.

Fantastic restaurant. High quality service, workers are A+, the food is 10/10, and great ambiance, great lighting, great for a date. A bill for two should run you up $300 -$400 if you order a nice appetizer, 2 main dishes, desert, bottle of wine and of course some sides. Well worth it.

We made a last minute reservation because our power was out. Everyone was accommodating and helpful. Food and service was excellent. Especially Lief and Robert who took care of us. We all had prime rib of beef which was outstanding. Caramel apple cheesecake, Ferrero Rocher cake, wonderful! Highly recommend this restaurant.

My wife and I visited Rib n Reef on new years eve. We ordered wine and two main dishes. I really like the coleslaw and pickles they give out at the beginning. The restaurant's atmosphere was great and I really liked the live jazz band and the excellent food. However, our server was out of it that night. First, after taking our drink order and waiting for like 30 minutes. I asked him about the drinks and he completely forgot about them. I understand they are busy and things can go wrong, but he just would not doing mistakes that night. Second, He was the only server who kept disappearing for a very long time, I noticed his smell after coming back seems like he was busy having a cigarette. Lastly, he even messed up a lot of things he was not supposed to.

Food was very good. Service not the best. Early sitting for New Year's eve and waiter was more concerned about setting up tables and shinning glasses than taking our order. Wine we requested not available so order another and it was warm. For the price you pay at the Rib I expected more.

So here is my take on the restaurant. Firstly the food is not something that you can’t find at other Steak Houses in the city. The coleslaw and pickles definitely need improvement. Not comparable to Moishes overall. As for value, it is over priced for what you are getting. Best part of this place is the upstairs cigar lounge by far.

Great service for lunch for the business meeting. When I go to a restaurant I don’t want to feel stressed. The host and waiters made sure that the table was well served without being overbearing. They were able to accommodate me even though I did not have much time.

We started with the Rib’s Hot Platter to share. The platter itself is nice to have when you haven’t been to the restaurant before. Once you have tried everything you might prefer to choose individual appetizers the next time. Everyone on the platter was good though my favourites were the Rockefeller oysters and jumbo shrimp. I didn’t care too much for the fried calamari but at that point it’s down to personal preference.

The Caesar salad was made tableside. It does take time to make so make sure you’re not in a hurry to leave prior to ordering the salad. A salad for two is enough for three, so keep that in mind. I enjoyed the show and the taste was what you’d expect from Caesar dressing minus the obvious tangy flavour you might get out of bottled Caesar dressing. I would order the salad again.

Lobster bisque - bad. The soup had no semblance of lobster flavour and took on this weird bitter and salty taste. When the soup arrived it also had a layer of cream that started to form on the surface, which means it had time to rest outside for a while. Not a good sign but the waiter took it off the bill without asking, so the gesture was appreciated.

For the main dish I had Arctic char. The cook was nicely done and the fish retained sufficient moisture. The capers were a little overpowering with their pungency but on its own the fish had decent flavour. Nothing too special, so I’ll opt for something else next time.

Overall, great service and atmosphere. Despite it being lunchtime, the restaurant was packed. Even then, the waiters never missed a beat. Great choice for any occasion.
