Le Sugar Reef Ratings and Reviews
Nice food, nice music, service was ok.
We had one of us who did not want to eat meat.
It would be great to have more choices for vegan or vegetarian people.
The single vegan salad could be improved.
The new owner was very present during the evening and this was very appreciated.
Speaking French with the owner war very cool. :)
We have been coming back to Sugar Reef every year for many years. It was always the restaurant we chose for our first night back in Florida. And after that I would choose it for my birthday. And many times in between. It combined a delightful beach front location with a sophisticated and tasteful French Caribbean menu and a charming staff. Things seem to have changed. Although some of our favorites were still on the menu, the list seems to have been broadened and dumbed down to suit the tastes of tourists who want only the familiar and ordinary. And the service, while friendly, was no longer quite so acutely knowledgeable. I can understand the financial realities that drive these decisions. And we’ll give Sugar Reef another chance this winter. But we are already online and on Zagat looking for our new favorite French restaurant.
We have been to Sugar Reef four times over a six year period. Athough past visits were memorable, this last visit was very disappointing. The wait for food was interminable. Both entrees we selected had on the menu as a starch a risotto. Apparently there was some issue in the kitchen and as a result we were served - after an interminable wait, and no explanation - mashed potatoes. I don't particularly mind the substitution, but having it arrive late and unannounced was not good service.
Really good meal. Seafood Pasta was PERFECT (tons of all the right ingredients artfully prepared). Calamari in the pasta was great and that is one ingredient that rarely gets done right. Pasta perfect and really really liked the sauce. Could you get the meal for $5 less if you weren't on the beach? Of course, but guess what..........If you stay on Hollywood Beach, then eat here at least once-- you just can't find the quality and view anywhere else. Tremendous Value!
The service was poor. We were served our entree prior to the one appetizer we had ordered to share so we passed on it. It took a long time to get our dessert which was a Key Lime pudding not a pie. We were perturbed that an 18% gratuity had been added to our bill when we were a party of 3. We were surprised since we have dined here before and the service was excellent . The food is delicious and it is a great location. Not sure we will return any time soon.
Fiancé birthday dinner. Great location on the beach with perfect ambiance. Service started out a little slow but quickly improved. The place was busy when we arrived for our 7:30 reservation, but we were seated immediately.
The food is fantastic. We split the bacon wrapped shrimp with brussel sprouts, she had the spinach salad and I had the wedge. Both were great. Glazed salmon, and bronzino were our entrees and they did not disappoint. For desert we shared the apple pie, it was very good as well.
We will definitely be back!
Hollywood Beach has a wide variety of just-ok restaurants of various stripes. Sugar Reef Grill, however, is of a different order. The staff, chef, and owner always strive to be at least a clear grade above the other offerings on the beach in terms of service and menu quality (JWB is a higher-priced option, but also of note). Staff greet you politely, and are attentive throughout your dining experience. The food is always very good and well-presented. A clear choice on this beach.
First time we tried this place. Very pretty room right off Hollywood broadwalk, white tablecloths and elegant room in a location known for pizza and casual food. I had a special vegetable soup (it was like an onion soup with large chunks of veggies), wife had escargot. The snails needed a little more salt and butter but they were hot and fine, fresh warm bread to go with them. I'd recommend they stop putting grape tomatoes on top of the snails, I've had them a hundred times and never served with tomatoes before. We both had corvina special with a caper and butter sauce, the entrees were delicious. We finished meal with profiteroles which were very good, two came in a serving, we would have gladly eaten a third. Very fairly priced entrees and wine list, friendly and attentive service. Owner came by to make sure we were enjoying dinner. We will be back.
My favorite place to eat at the Hollywood Broadwalk. Even great for breakfast. The food is delicious and the staff is wonderful. Beautiful ocean view and you can eat inside or out.
I always take out of town guests there. Never disappointed. This place is a hidden gem.
Have been a patron infrequently over many years.Service was much better than in the past, but I find the owner always aloof. The menu is varied and good, but a bit expensive for the average diner.
Parking is extremely difficult, which is something to be mindful of.
We were very disappointed this time with Sugar Reef. We have frequented this restaurant many times in the past and lately each time we like it less and less. They are always out of the selection that we want on the menu. The food was average to not great. We think it's time for a new chef. This place used to be wonderful, what happened? The calamari was floating in something really bitter. The beet salad was strange. The prices are high for boring beach food. Bring back the old Sugar Reef. Please :)
there were so many wait staff buzzing around you couldn't tell who was accountable. but in the end it didn't feel attentive.
escargot didn't have much garlic, beet carpaccio was suppose to be 2 shades of beets etc arrived virtually undressed plain sliced beets with a few sprigs of green and some cheese thrown on..very plain and quite expensive.
Overall quite a disappointing experience compared to my previous 2.
Will give it a rest for awhile
