Great service. The food is unbelievable. Although i did wish that the cooks who cook the food in front of you had a better attitude. They made me feel as if i was a bother asking them to make the sliders or crab... ect. But overall great place this is my 3rd time here. Definitely recommend.

The Reef didn’t disappoint again! I’ve been coming here every year for my birthday and will continue to come every year! Missed Auggie but I understand he was sick so hopefully we’ll see him next year! Best Sunday Champagne Brunch in SoCal and plenty of food!

We arrived 5 minutes before our reservation and didn't get seated for about 10 minutes after. We decided to get the 3 course prix fix. The kick starters that I chose was a salad and my wife had the clam chowder. Both items were good but the entrees were not up to my standards. I had the boneless short ribs and my wife had the salmon. I'm not sure if it's because we had the 3 course meals or if that's how the food is normally prepared. It wasn't handled with care to say the least. This is our first time here and we were celebrating a belated valentine's date. The salmon dish had mushy rice and the boneless short rib had some lard on it but was tender. The service was good, no complaints there. For that reason, I don't mind returning to try other dishes

I was seated before we got to the front desk for check in. So I was not able to check in with open table for points. Bummer. My steak was over cooked but the servers were nice.

Hostess was not very engaging and not very welcoming. She stated that we had to wait 15 min even though we had a reservation.
