    All good although the prices are rather high for certain items. On a Saturday night you can't hear yourself think as the younger crowd takes over with all of their enthusiasm. The cigar lounge is excellent and a welcome addition to a city that has lost its culture and class. Kudos to this establishment. The two other renown steak houses should take note as a lot of their old regular clients are now departing to a steak house that is consistent and appreciates its customers .

    Came here during a conference. The place is fancy and nicely decorated. The staff was friendly and showed us the way to the conference room. I took the salmon tartare as an appetizer, the steak as the main and a chocolate cake as dessert. The portions are huge and it's hard to eat everything. However, they all had a great taste, especially the tartare.

    Best place to have steak in Montreal, and not only a steak.. their appetizers are BOMB, and ceasar sald that they prepare in front of you is to die for..

    Last Saturday was my second visit to Rib 'N Reef, both times for our wedding anniversary.I must say that the some 15 years in between our visits gave ample time to jack up their prices! Even with a $100 gift card, we had to disburse over $200 for the meal. Hubby took one beer, and that was all the extant of our alcohol consumption for the evening!But... the food was good (probably not $300 good). I had the crab cakes (which comes with a mustard sauce which I did not care for at all) and were really good; mostly crab, not filling! Hubby had the tuna tartar, which is made at the table and was amazing.The lobster tail that came with my steak was cooked perfectly, tender and savory. My steak was good, but, I think hubby can make it if not better, as good as them on the bbq! I like my steak rare, and its a very difficult thing to get in a restaurant; seems like Rib 'N Reef included. It was quite tasty and very tender though.Hubby really enjoyed his NY Strip and garlic mashed potatoes.Finally, I have to admit that their crème brulée is as good as mine... damn it! ;)What really impressed me there though, was the quality of the service. Those guys know their business and are an integral part of what makes a meal at the Rib 'N Reef so special! Thank you very much to the very nice and professional waiters!

    Rib n' reef is very upscale. You really need to dress properly and come here with a healthy wallet lol!The atmosphere is super upscale with big spenders all around the parking lot lol.When you come here make sure you're wallet is full.. to come here be ready to spend over 300$ for you and another person.We were here for a lovely dinner meal of 4 people. We ordered a hot seafood platter as a starter with a fancy new Zealand wine. It was very delicious.The food was superbe. Cooked to perfection. We had the waiter bring out the meats that were raw and have us pick out our cut to be cooked. I was really impressed by that. Having to pick out the meat you want is always a bonus.Service was incredible. Waiters are all dressed elegantly with white collars and black ties. They always came around frequently to refill our drinks and change our utensils. Free valet parking is always a major bonus as wellI had an amazing experience and the it was money well spent. I will definitely come back if I'm craving a good cooked steak haha

    This my second time and let me tell you from the moment you're welcomed with the valet to the last service, everything is exceptional! I love the fact they give you a break between courses. The caesar salad is made in front of you and its reaaally good salad, not your typical caesar salad.  The filet mignon with blue cheese was perfect so was the classic roast beef. Hands downs best steak i've ever ever had, The table d'hôte is affordable. The ambiance is so nice and chic. Super worth it and highly recommended.

    Hands down the best steakhouse in the city. The rib steak is spectacular! They make the ceasar salad right in front of you and you can change it to your tastes so its always the best you've had because you helped make it. Staff and managers are very helpful and service is amazing. If you're a cigar aficionado you can go upstairs to the private cigar lounge stocked with great cigars.

    Easily my favourite steakhouse in Montreal.Service is always excellent, from the valet parking all the way up.... the wine cellar  downstairs is tremendous, the food is what you'll compare all other top notch steakhouses to and I'm still dreaming about the tableside tuna tartare.Yes, it's expensive, but you won't regret it after you experience an evening there.

    We were here for Valentines Day, and the restaurant was packed.  The service was amazing from the minute we walked in as we were treated like royalty.  It was a cold day and they even asked to get my car early to warm it up before.  I would defiantly come back soon.
