Coming from a zone that was open we booked a reservation at this restaurant via open table. We even got an e-mail requesting we confirm in the AM. Google also indicated that they were open for dine-in. Turns out they weren't and we found out when we drove several hours and showed up on their doorstep expecting to be seated. Obviously, they forgot to disable their OpenTable reservations. As a matter of fact, I'm leaving this review because OpenTable just sent me an e-mail asking me to rate my dinner.
Very embarrassing for us and we probably would have laughed it off and ordered takeout but the restaurant was so obnoxious about it that they basically volunteered it to be the "bad guy". Now I'm more annoyed than embarrassed.
I love old-school steakhouses for their service, food, and atmosphere. They are a throwback to a better time before the chain steakhouses took over. Based on our interaction, this place is nothing like the places I usually frequent, places where you sit at the bar and have a drink with the owner while you wait for your table. Places that you return to again and again.
It's a hard "no" from me.
Great place to eat. Good selection food was delicious. Grilled octopus is amazing. Steak and lobster tail was very good. Would recommend.
We had a great experience. The service was spectacular; our waitstaff were perfectly attentive. We enjoyed a lovely meal and the seafood tower was a fabulous way to start the meal.
Great dining room with real steakhouse feeling.
Waiting staff looked a little lost and not working as a team.
Great fried calamari and octopus salad.
Rib steak was on the thin side and lack flavour.
Walking into the restaurant I was expecting the ambiance to be 5 star however I saw the buss boy drinking behind the bar with a dirty shirt and a backwards hat on and that didn’t seem very 5 star to me .When we ordered the service was okay however the steak I ordered was meant to be medium rare, however as I cut into the best part, the meat was not cooked at all and raw, I showed the server and he took it back to the back to cook it again and it still came back blue. I am really disappointed for such an expensive cut of meat I couldn’t even enjoy all of it
Really nice service, great list of wines, and good food!
The food was excellent but very expensive for a table of 4 with bottles of wine.
Food was amazing and the service was pristine! I would most definitely recommend
Steak is amazing and if you want to have a really good bottle of wine, this is your place!!
Always a pleasure to eat at Rib N' Reef. The food is always very well prepared and delicious. The service is also impeccable.
Lobster bisque was fabulous! Roast beef to die for.
Looking for a great place to eat
The Rib and Reef is rhe place
Classy and good
Super bon service par Sylvain
C’était notre première visite et nous avons adoré l’ambiance et service
Excellent service. Considering Covid, we all felt very comfortable and safe. Food was excellent as always
Food was mediocre and cold, despite premium prices.
The Caesar salad is de rigueur. However, the seafood is best avoided. Twice now our friends felt sick shortly after consuming the seafood, namely shrimp and lobster. Stick to meat and poultry and you should be fine. The wine list is good, but overpriced. The service is attentive and professional. The ambiance has a nice club feel—one you expect from a steakhouse.
The service was inadequate. They forgot our drinks. The cesar salad was not prepared at the table and was flawed. Our steak and rosbif were cooked as requested. Finally, they served our wine when our meals were almost finished.
We will not return.
Je suis un habitué de Moishe’s et si je compare le deux restaurants qui servent tous les deux une excellente qualité de nourriture... RIB N Reef est plus dispendieux.
The food was good! The steak was so dry. The worst steak I ever had
Always amazing !!!! Food is on point every time. Never disappointed!
I reserved a table for our anniversary. The experience was wonderful from the beginning to the end. From valet parking attendants who greet you with positive attitudes and great smiles to the wait staff who goes above and beyond to ensure you are treated like royalty.
The ambiance is very « steakhouse chic » but has a modern feel that makes it very a propos in this day and age. Even though you are required to wear a mask upon entry and wash your hands, all staff is wearing a mask, it did not take away from the elegance and magic of the experience.
Great 5 a 7. Shared 4 apps. Patio was really nice also.
Food is good but very pricey. One can have a filet mignon as good at a different steakhouse for half the price. Our waiter was disconnected and didnt care for us, we didnt “fit” with the regular crowd (read: we didnt seem to have loads of money). Another waiter was very friendly and engaged us in wonderful chitchat. The wine was worth it though.
It was a special occasion and unfortunately we were the only ones there besides 1 other table on the terrace at lunch so I can't say much about ambiance. Pricey but good. The service excellent.
This restaurant is the best restaurant I’ve been too in a long time. You pay not only for the food, they make you live a dreamy experience. My man concluded that this was our new spot to go so Rib n Reef got themselves a new regular client. Perfect for classy professional event/celebration. Jazz music to the RDV and the services that we got was top notch! Thank you for that amazing evening ❤️
Valet service was amazing. Waiter was a little slow to serve us, but other table were getting service faster...
Excellent as usual.
A+ SERVICE AND FOOD QUALITY. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE
Une fois c'est ok. Les toilettes étaient vraiment sales. Sinon, le service était efficace, mais très condescendant dans les débuts. Cela c'est amélioré au cours de la soirée, heureusement. J'ai passé une belle soirée, mais je ne reviendrais pas. Le rapport qualité/prix étaient un peu exagéré.
The food was delicious, and the price is worth it. The staffs were courteous. The place was very ambivalent and cozy. Overall, it is a terrific dining experience.
Waiter not very nice and friendly but good food. So quiet for a Friday night i was surprised
Great service and Ambiance, very accommodating, customized our order to suit our needs. Not our first visit and we are looking forward to going back.
The experience of going to a top class diner was something to remember, especially after the long period of isolation... It happened to be our 5 year anniversary and we wanted to do something special. Rib & Reef is literally one block away from our condo and we had never dined there since moving in 5 years ago.
I didn't find that it was value for money though. We have had the same food and drinks at a less expensive steak house. While very good, we didn't feel it was outstanding.
The difference was the staff. They were tentative, pleasant, friendly and available at a simple gesture or look their way. They attended to our every need and that is where we experienced the value.
I would go back again for sure but it's not a once a month place to go. Probably once or twice a year.
Excellent girl’s evening at Rib n’ reef. The service impeccable, covid measures in place and the food exquisite!
Steak was horrible. So many nerves.
Halibut dry. The best part of the meal was the pickle
Service has always been good at R n R, but this time it was better than ever.
Tout allait bien jusqu’à ce que lorsque nous partions quelqu’un est venu nous apporter un repas commandé par une autre personne et quand il s’est rendu compte, même pas une excuse mais avec une violence sans pareille il a arraché le repas de l’auto. On s’est senti comme des bons à rien
I booked last minute for my boyfriend's birthday and I must say I was quite impressed. The service was beyond nice. They literally treated us like loyalty! I'm glad he got to enjoy his our date!!
Ps: we went in the afternoon around 2pm so it was very peaceful.
