My wife and I went to Reef for Valentine's Day dinner. This was our first visit to this restaurant but we will definitely be back. We were seated at the exact time of our reservation. The servers were attentive and friendly. The food was out of this world. We had a tuna poke appetizer which was outstanding - very fresh... More

Eaten here a few times and the food and service is always great. Valet parking is free. Has a bar to the side and you can get a dinner menu. Wine list is extensive.

We came here to enjoy their 5 course tasting dinner with wine pairing and were blown away! The cuisine was top notch and the service was off the charts! We bid on this at an charity auction and are so glad we did! Everything from the bread and jalapeño jelly, gumbo, ahi tuna, and beef were prepared to perfection and... More

I LOVED Reef! The food was absolutely delicious. The crab cakes, rock shrimp tempura, and poke were fabulous appetizers. I then had the red snapper for dinner, which was very unique with Meyer lemon foam and very tasty. The desert was also excellent - we had the blueberry (muffin I think?) and the chocolate lava cake. The service was great... More

Food was delicious and creatively prepared. Had the striped bass and the snapper. Both were exquisite but the snapper, which comes with "instructions," was particularly incredible. Great wine list with surprisingly reasonable prices. Very attentive and gracious staff. A bit loud once it filled up but we had no difficulty conducting our dinner meeting. Highly recommended.

They serve very fresh local seafood that is perfectly prepared. The large attractive space is not as loud as most restaurants. Tables are spaced so that you can have a conversation without shouting. The wine list is one of the best I have seen, with a long list of very reasonably priced wines.

This place had great entrees, the appetizers are ok and not too impressed with the cold seafood tower or the kobe beef appetizer. The wine selections are amazing with fantastic prices. Our waiter was very helpful and nice.

We have wanted to try Reef for several years but have never been able to get a reservation on days we were in Houston until last week. Restaurant was not very busy so we got a table at 6 pm. Our waiter was very helpful and attentive. We ordered the redfish with mac n cheese (wonderful) and the tuna dinner.... More
