The Reef is a gathering spot that captures the heart of the seadog in all of us. It feels like home port in all the right ways, and acknowledges the wanderlust and adventurous spirit in every sailors soul. Situated dockside in Newport Harbor, The Reef is a waterfront restaurant serving international cuisine inspired by the travels of sailors to ports around the world, with a drink selection to suit every taste. Our versatile harborside space is great for intimate gatherings and large celebrations alike, yet casual enough for spontaneous come-as-you-are get-togethers. Down a quick libation at the end of a perfect sail, or enjoy a meal with flavors from faraway places while listening to live music on the patio. Our accommodating staff guarantees a pleasant, memorable experience every time you visit. At the Reef, we believe every day can be a good one when you’re surrounded by the sights, sounds and flavors of the sea.

    We are locals and attend the Reef every once in a while for dinner and we absolutely love their brunch menu . Starting to become a monthly tradition . The service is always hospitable , very clean and enjoy the Sunday Music during brunch that they offer . The food is always delicious and consistent and will keep coming back .

    We had a recommendation to this restaurant for New Year’s Eve Dinne , it was 4 course dinner, not chip, we look the menu before we go . It was a spectacular menu. The service was good but very slow, as we sit we had to chose all the 4 plates, but when it was time to come the entree, it past at least 40 min to the server tell us that the lobster was ended, since others guests arrived after us and had the lobster, it was a descase, we order another plate but it wasn’t what we want. I made a reservation so they must be prepared for all guests. We are not going to return to this restaurant.

    We had a 7:15 pm New Years Eve reservation. After waiting too long to order drinks and then receiving the wrong drinks our waitress informed us that they were short staffed and had a new bartender. My husbands chowder was cold but we couldn’t reach a waiter to return it. His steak was also lukewarm as was my baked lobster. This was $130 per person and definitely not worth it. Very disappointed with overall experience.

    The ReefResponded on January 8, 2023Hi Susan, Our goal is for all of our guests to have the best experience and I apologize for not living up to our expectations. Our General Manager will be reaching out to you personally to discuss this with you as any other feedback you can provide is extremely helpful to us. Thank you The Reef

    I highly recommend the calamari. Super tender and delicious. We had the shrimp scampi and the salmon. Both were delicious. The shrimp scampi was the right amount of sauce garlic. The garlic really made it! I highly recommend the Reef. Next time we want to rent an outside igloo.

    I had booked a reservation through Open Table for the Winter-wonderland Igloo however when we arrived there the hostess stated that those igloos were not available and we had to choose a different theme. She said we didn’t leave a note for the winter wonderland igloo and so that’s why we could not reserve it although our reservation clearly stated winter wonderland. Also when we got to the igloos there was only one winter wonderland set up to my knowledge and it was taken. When you book these reservations online it makes it seem like there’s multiple igloos of that theme especially this time of year (right before Christmas) and we made the reservation over a month in advance. We chose this place to celebrate Christmas with our families so it didn’t make sense to have to choose between the leftover themed igloos especially when you’re paying $100 to rent it. Other than that the igloos were cool and the food was great. The waitress was nice. The woman cleaning the igloos was miserable. For the cost of the igloos to not even be guaranteed the one you want, I probably won’t return. Cool to do once though.

    The ReefResponded on January 3, 2023Thank you for bringing this concern to our attention, Kayla. Our team is working to make sure that all reservations are communicated. Our Winter Wonderland Igloo Village is inclusive of ALL Igloo themes & does not denote a specific igloo when making a reservation. We apologize for any inconvenience this caused and we will be working with out team to avoid any such issue. We’re happy to hear that the food & service overshadowed any dissapointment & you and your family enjoyed your time with us.

    We booked a winter wonderland igloo. They called to confirm our time, informed us of the late policy. We arrived a few minutes early and were told they overbooked the igloo and we needed to wait a half hour. Ok. We wait at the bar. Finally our igloo was ready, yet it was not the one reserved it was a summer theme. We wouldn’t have minded but we paid $100 to have dinner in the igloo not including the cost of the actual dinner. Once seated it took another 32 minutes for someone to take our order then 35 minutes for us to get out food. Food was grossly overcooked but waitress never came back so we ate what we could. I could have been more understanding if they were busy but they didn’t have one guest on either side of the restaurant. Only guest were In The four igloos outside so not busy enough that out service was poor. Asked for the check and it took another 15 minutes Waitress never came back to collect our check so had to leave cash. $240 plus tip for an awful experience Plus on the reservation I told them it was my husbands bday and requested they bring out a cake which they never did.

    We sat for about 10 minutes in an empty restaurant until our server said I’ll be right there and got us water, then left and came back 10 min later and got our drink order and appetizers. Appetizers came out before my wine which he said the bartender lost the ticket, then took our food order. Luckily the food is so good that it saved the dinner we were having to celebrate my husband graduating the war college.

    Plans were changed we were booked for the igloos but they weren’t ready yet. the server was slow, only one other table was occupied but never refilled water. The shrimp cocktail was great! The Brussels were amazing! It’s a shame both our entrees were not great. Hubby got wagu steak that was full of gristle, and over cooked he asked for med rare and it was more med. I got the vegetarian meal but the quality of the veggies lacked freshness. Our wine was great, saved the day. Oh and no dessert was ever mentioned… it being my birthday we were hoping to have a little something sweet.

    Apparently The Reef was formerly known as The Pier. The food was excellent. We went only because of Newport Restaurant Week, and had the three course prix fixe menu. The restaurant is quite large, with two separate sections, one on the left and one on the right when you first walk in. There was live music the night that we dined there. Because of the time of year, (November), the restaurant was not crowded at all. Downtown Newport was a little busy, but The Reef, being located farther down Thames Street on Howard's Wharf, was a little quieter.

    The receptionist was very friendly, taking us to a table when we arrived 1 hour before booked time. Ambience was traditional new england pier style, and we had a good calamari appetizer. The main course however was less than ideal. Grilled salmon had very little taste, and shrimp scampi had too much butter which made my stomach a bit queasy before a long drive home. Overall I think it has a good location and deco, perhaps consider improving the cooking just a bit. Waiter was very friendly, but did forget to get me a replacement fork as the one on the table was visibly very dirty, something that could be caught if more care was taken during table setting. Next time if I step in there, I will get the fail-safe fish and chips.

    The food wasn’t impressive and the price was high, I will not be going back.

    We went Saturday night when there was a lovely keyboard player an singer entertaining us. Drinks were great, but the jerk chicken ta os were beyond spicy! Way more then "a little heat" as the waiter described. Other then that, everything was great and we would go back again

    The ReefResponded on October 19, 2022Thanks for joining us, Pat! We appreciate your feedback and will be sure to keep that in mind. Hope to see you again soon for another great Saturday night. Cheers! - The Reef

    Lackluster menu and slow service. They seem to capitalize on proximity to the docks to capture foot traffic coming off a sailboat. The menu was limited. Better options along the Newport waterfront.

    The ReefResponded on October 19, 2022Thank you for your candid review of The Reef, Pete. We're sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your experience with us and that our menu didn't meet your expectations. Our location near the docks does offer a wonderful view, but we're sorry to hear that it wasn't enough to make up for the other areas where we fell short. We hope you'll give us another chance in the future so that we can show you what we're capable of. - The Reef
