Everything was amazing excwpt its way overpriced!! 19$ for one shrimp is insane. 75$ for a 16.50$ bottle of wine is insane. Would recommend for the food but not for the price.

Dear Karineg, Thank you very much for your 5-star review. We aim to strike a balance between obsessive quality and fair pricing. We strive to source the best ingredients available for our guests, be it steaks or spectacular seafood that looks like it just jumped out of the sea. But the price of premium ingredients keeps going up. This year has been particularly challenging, but we're doing our best to manage it. Warm regards, Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality

Cher MartinC, Nous acceptons que notre restaurant ne plaise pas à tout le monde. Nous sommes quand même désolés que vous n'ayez pas apprécié votre visite. Qu'avez-vous mangé à deux pour 520 $? Et combien ces mêmes ingrédients vous auraient-ils coûté au marché aujourd'hui ? Les ingrédients de qualité ne cessent d'augmenter. Nous sommes là pour en servir les meilleurs à nos convives, peu importe le prix. Bien à vous, Fede Sanchez, Directeur de l'hospitalité

Waitstaff were pleasant and helpful. As with several other reviews, the meat was overcooked i(n my hamburger): I ordered medium and got well done. The rest of the meal (salad, sides) were goog.

Dear LucT, Thank you for your compliments to our service and food. We take note of your comment about the overcooked burger. We wish we were perfect, but we admit that mistakes can happen. We serve thousands of guests every week. Unfortunately, it is the rare overcooked steak that sometimes lands in the reviews, because our guests are right to demand perfection. We have shared your feedback with our kitchen. We hope we'll be able to host you again! Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality

For the price you are paying, it wasn’t worth it. The bread was stale. Our steaks were over cooked. Drinks were watered down to the point where it didn’t taste like alcohol anymore. Too many waiters constantly walking around and way too crowded during COVID. We won’t be dining here again.

Responded on November 24, 2021

Dear Carlon, We apologize for any glitches that occurred during your visit. Our regular guests and the reviews will attest that we are not in the habit of serving stale bread, overcooked steaks, or watered down drinks, but errors can happen. Did you inform your waiter? Were we able to improve the situation on the spot? We stand by our product and no one should leave unhappy. Sincerely, Fede Sanchez Director of Hospitality

We went there for our anniversary. We found it overall to be decent but not spectacular. The sommelier was no helpful at all and ended up recommending us a cheap bottle of wine that was palatable at best. We were going there with the intention of having a special dinner and it was only just average.

Dear ReneeG, First of all, thank you kindly for choosing Rib 'N Reef for your anniversary. We are disappointed the experience didn't live up to your expectations because we are known for delighting guests on their special occasions! We sincerely apologize. We have shared your feedback with our managers. Our sommelier takes to heart his recommendations and we're sure he'll also be disappointed to read that his suggestion didn't satisfy you. Warm regards, Fede Sanchez Director of hospitality

Salade non assaisonnée, steak trop cuit et non goûteur. J'y étais avec des clients et nous n'avons pas mangé l'ensemble de notre assiette. Ça ne vaut vraiment pas la valeur payée.

Rib n Reef Steakhouse
Responded on November 17, 2021

Cher EricR, Veuillez accepter nos excuses les plus sincères. Servir des salades fades ou des steaks trop cuits n'est pas dans nos habitudes. Nous accueillons des clients réguliers depuis 60 ans, mais des erreurs peuvent arriver. Avez-vous porté l'incident à l'attention de votre serveur ? Est-ce que nous avons fait des efforts pour corriger la situation ? Nos garantissons nos plats et il est impératif que nos clients quittent satisfaits. Bien à vous, Fede Sanchez, Dir. de l'Hospitalité

For such a high end steakhouse and lots of pleasant staff, the steaks highly disappointed. one order was wrong, one filet looked tiny and sad on the plate and one filet was cooked to medium well after being ordered rare. mistakes like this should happen in low end restaurants not ones charging upwards of $80+ for one steak that comes with zero sides.

Dear HarveyL, We are disappointed to read about your experience, especially since your wife had a great meal the previous time. We've shared your review with the owner. We've been serving outstanding food for 60 years to discerning regular guests, but mistakes can happen and we are sincerely sorry. Did you inform your waiter or manager? Did they make efforts to correct the situation? We'll go to great lengths to insure our guests leave absolutely satisfied. Fede Sanchez Dir. of Hospitality

Without exception the food was uninspired and mediocre. The service was adequate and the atmosphere pleasant but the quality of the food (tasteless, overcooked and unremarkable) was a huge disappointment. We had a varied selection of vegetables, meat and fish and it was all quite unexceptional. Very disappointing.

Dear DisappointedDiner, We are equally disappointed by this review. We are sincerely sorry that your meal didn't live up to your expectations. We take pride in being Montreal's premium steakhouse and your description of our food doesn't sound at all like Rib 'N Reef. Our guests and our reviews since 1960 reflect our devotion to quality. Something must've gone wrong when you dined with us. Could you please send us more details? Thank you for your feedback. Fede Sanchez, Director of Hospitality
