My client and I ordered the Filet with a bone. Meat was tender but absolutely no spices or taste. Had to add salt and pepper. Very disappointed. Even the garden salad was terrible. Dressing was not good.

Brought my team of 6 for a celebratory dinner and we were all disappointed. The steaks lacked flavor and were on the tough/chewy side. That should never happen at these prices - quality is an absolute expectation. Service was far below par. You cant just 'look' the part. Staff here have lost the essential customer service mantra and likely a result that they have all been there for tens of years and they just don't care and have become absurdly complacent (e.g - chipped cocktail glasses, missing condiments in drinks, wet rag left on a chair which was sat on, attempting to pour different wines into the same glass and when asked for a different glass it was met with silence and subliminal disdain) This restaurant in no way represents or fulfills the prices rendered or the accolades from other virtual reviews. There's much much better out there.

Signature Caesar Salad was way below standards.
PK Cut Rib Steak was rather small.
Service sub standard on numerous levels.
Not usually like this.

Reservation for 9:15 for 2. Ordered the 16oz. NY steak cooked medium well, clam chowder, and onion rings. Fiance ordered filet mingonette cooked medium well, lobster bisque and Mac n cheese. steaks took about 45 minutes, only to arrive undercooked (perhaps medium rare?) Servers were incredibly polite, but due to having other plans that evening, we didn't have time for them to remake/re-cook the steaks so we didn't ask. I did like that we were never made to feel rushed, even though we seemed to be the last reservation of the evening, and I'm sure the staff would have like to begin closing things down on the holiday.

soups and sides were good but would have loved to have eaten the whole steak, not just the more well cooked parts around the edges.

We were the first clients, we reserved at 4:30, we were all completed by 5pm. It took a while before the waiter came to take our order, I had to raise my hand to get his attention but my guess is that maybe he wanted to let us take our time, which was alright. By 5:45~ we had our appetizers, then nothing else at all until 7pm. The reason? The waiter/kitchen staff lost our orders and by that time, the restaurant was starting to be crowded and so of course, we weren’t the first that have ordered anymore. At the end, the coffee was charged and I had to negotiate to get it as a gift for making us waiting. I mean, the waiter could of at least thought about it to save the night, it was only coffee. Overall, good food, professional service but forgetful. 14% was left, which is fair.

Il semble y avoir un petit problème côté bar-service .. les cocktails reçus n’étaient pas que ce nous vivons commandé. Avons reçu à deux reprises la mauvaise chose. Même chose pour la table à côté de nous. Pour ce qui est de la viande, elle était vraiment ordinaire. Nous avons vu mieux dans des restaurants plus bas de gamme. La qualité de ce que nous avons dans l’assiste ne vaut pas le prix chargé.

The tomahawk was overpriced. The gravy on the roast beef tasted like Knorr Demi-glace. The service was friendly if not very attentive, but it was a busy night...

There are many "extra" touches that make a restaurant great and this place certainly has that! I appreciated the Valet parking and the meal was wonderful. I did find that we were at a rather cramped table but it is the holidays, so they must have been very busy. There are many extras on the table : pickles, coleslaw (more than the usual bread basket) and that was quite lovely. We also had excellent service which we really appreciated.

Had a wonderful evening at Ribs and Reef - from the valet parking to the table server the staff are friendly and professional and enhanced the evening. The menu provides many options and the table side preparation and service of some items just made the night more special. The wine list also provides options for all palates and budgets.
I highly recommend Ribs and Reef for a family night or special occasion.

Table too high compared to banquette.

Steak ordered medium rare but was served medium almost well. Was replaced.
Ordered sauteed rapini with onions received steamed rapini. Was replaced.

Birthday cake with sparkler was unceremoniously dumped on the table.

Nary a smile from the waitstaff.

Overrated, overpriced,underwhelming. So many other excellent restaurants to choose from. Will not return.

J’ai été mangé dimanche soir. Et la nourriture était pas à mon gout. Calmar très dur. Et j’avais demandé mon filet mignonette médium saignant et j’ai reçu un steak bleu. Crevette beaucoup trop cuite elles étaient dur comme la roche.

Merci
