Enjoyed my meal, crab was my choice and loved it. Don't appreciate that tips is automaticly added on my bill when we are a party of 8 at a table. Rather give what I value myself. and 18 % added over the taxes are a bit to mutch. my bill was 1563 + taxes and ended up paying 323,53 $ of tip witch is more then 20 % . I would probably give the same amount, but don't appriciate being force to do it.
Other then that, it's always a pleasure eating at the Rib n Reef Steakhouse.

I went there to celebrate my wedding anniversary with my wife and the service was top notch . Even though I had no clue of what was on the menu , they explained it well and my choice was awesome . Lady at the cigar lounge was friendly . Nice ambiance.

Caesar salad was excellent. 9.1 out of 10. Steak was very fatty and tasteless. Very disappointing.

Came out from Texas was looking for a good steak place. Needless to say, we would have been better off just going somewhere else. There are mixed reviews because you can tell who they take care of, and who they brush off to the side in terms of level or service they provide.

We were seated around 8, server seemed very rushed every time he was talking to us, ordered because we were just ready to eat and continue our night (again, out of town-ers celebrating a birthday) we got our food around 9:05PM… we waited over 45 minutes for our food, and they couldn’t just tell us “we forgot to put your food order in.” Which is bad enough, but the server just could not admit he mad a mistake. I was furious, my husband’s birthday in Montreal and we came out from downtown left our 5 start hotel for THIS?!

Food (when we finally got it) was not worth the cost, quality wasn’t anything ground breaking, it gave me Outback Steakhouse vibes with a Cigar Lounge. We are from Texas we KNOW steak and beef. This was definitely not quality and not worth it for anyone traveling.

To make up for the disaster they give cheap Prosecco and some desserts. OH THE “BEST” part was when at the end of the server looked at my husband and said “nothing personal right?” UH HUH? Is this a joke?!
I’m actually embarrassed to tell people we ate here. Highly displeased and disappointed. Every part of our trip was Incredibly wonderful, except this place. And although we are from out of town and don’t have to say we won’t be back, we will recommend our friends visiting with $$$ spend it ELSEWHERE. Yikes

Typical Rib N Reef experience. The food is always consistently good and the service excellent. This place is a throwback to fine dining in Montreal during its glory days of the 60’s and 70’s. Highly recommended!

Our table was on the terrace, ordered sirloin steak to be flambé at the table, they did not do that and did not advise us that it was not possible because of the terrace.

2 out of the 3 Monte Carlo potatoes ordered came 15 minutes late

Fantastic resto,,seafood very tasty. But their steaks not as good as used to be, the meat is top level, but no seasoning, not much taste to it. Maybe they changed chefs.

Rib n Reef is our favourite Montreal restaurant where we dine at least twice a month.
The food, wine, desserts are consistently excellent. The martinis are incredible. The staff is very warm and welcoming...5 Stars all the way!

A little bit pricy but the waiters were very good ! Maybe just lower your prices on alcohol food however was worth the price $ being that it's a steak and meat resto

The food is very good to outstanding. However, you are going to shell out $$$$ for the alcohol.
