"The food was disappointing. The fillet was way too salty. If this is an example, the resto is living off of its reputation."

"This is by far the best Steakhouse in Montreal.
Table side made Caesars salads and crepes flambés.
A lost art of great service, old school steakhouse favourites done without the tackiness. And the cigar lounge is the perfect place to end a fantastic dinner!

"First time dining at Rib n reef, and had heard good things about it. I was not disappointed! From the valet, to the coat check and waiters, the service was excellent.
Very helpful with the menu items, and one of the better wine lists I've seen. We chose the Guado al tasso and Brunello Casanova di Neri...my friends from Toronto were very impressed with the experience. Did I mention...the steak was excellent!
To top it off, great choice of cigars in the lounge upstairs and great service from the waitress and our host, Saudial. Thanks!
Will definitely return and recommend to others.

"I gathered friends together for a night out and decided to go to Rib n Reef because of the good reviews however I was very disappointed in both the service and the food itself. I have had better steaks in a mom and pops restaurant, the price is absurd for the quality of meal you are receiving. The service was very much lacking waiters were non chillan, worst part is that it was not a busy night. Out of the 6 of us only 2 really enjoyed their meal, not the number you want to hear when you're dishing out over $800. The only part of the evening that I personally enjoyed was the cigar lounge as it is very shik and comfortable."

"The service is always great and the food is outstanding. We were seated in a corner booth that the new Prime Minister and wife had been seated in the day before. The wine list is very nice, but the wine prices in Quebec are quit high with their taxes, so don't blame them. You can also get a Cuban cigar after dinner."

"One great thing about the Rib and Reef is the Caesar salad made at your table. Every water does it a different way - more or less tabasco, more or less lemon, .. - so not only is it delicious but also a surprise. Keeping with the theme of having food prepared for us, we ordered the peppercorn sauce to go with our filet mignon, as well as topping it all off with the Cherry Jubilee! Everything was fantastically tasty! Fabulous wine list as well."

"The food and service are consistently excellent. Seriously, they make the best Cesar salad we've ever had. Steaks are always delicious and cooked to perfection. Only slight disappointment was the prime rib; taste was excellent however the portions are considerably smaller now for the price, which is not inexpensive. The night we went, they had no Yorkshire pudding with the prime rib. The chocolate cake was also excellent."

"Why unexpected?
It was unexpectedly expensive and also unexpectedly good.
I guess I didn't do my homework, because I expected it to be priced the same as other steakhouses, but it was higher. Not significantly higher, but it was exacerbated by my footing a 3-person bill. Ok enough about the prices - not really a big deal. We had a wall table and it was very nicely set up. The wine selection was vast, but the wine waitress was very helpful and found the perfect wine for us without costing an arm and a leg (well at least not an arm...). The food was generally well prepared and very good (rib steak and filet mignon on the bone), however the almond crusted tuna lacked distinction. The service is really what impressed me most. There were 5 waiters at our disposal for different things, and were very responsive, helpful and personable - really the best service I've had at a large resto. A very enjoyable evening."

"We had a table reservation but they didn't have a table ready for us when we got there and they sat us at a table with lawn chairs and the wait staff had their stuff near by and random Kleenex box set on our table as well. We eventually asked to be moved to a regular table. Food was otherwise very delicious."

"Went for a business lunch.
The service standards are, frankly, dated. The staff appear apprehensive or afraid to approach. The table-side service concept is something that should have gone the way of the dinosaur. I really believe that modernization of service standards would go a LONG way towards making the dining experience more enjoyable.
The aesthetics of the space are old world steakhouse, and though not my personal preference, the space is immaculate.
I ordered my steak blue, it came medium-rare. As we had limited time for lunch, I ate the steak, though I find it immensely disappointing that for a steak of that price it could not be cooked at the appropriate temperature.
The wine novel is too long (in my opinion), though the list if filled with absolute gems and the prices are actually quite reasonable with respect to the quality. The cellar in the basement is magnificent and is definitely one of the finest cellars in the city, that is certainly not debatable.
I have previously done group dinners in the wine cellar, I found that experience to be much more lively and enjoyable than in the main room. I can say the same for the cigar lounge, which is a hidden gem in Montreal.
I gave the restaurant an overall of 3 stars based mostly on previous experiences which were far more pleasant and of higher quality (and also on the strength of the wine list). I really think that it is a crime that my steak was overcooked so badly. All in all, take my opinion with a grain of salt, I do not feel that I fit into the target demographic for the restaurant. I am sure that if I took my father along for the same meal, he would have been delighted."
