How much more magnificent could an experience be? This was an amazing fine. If you have an imagination as mine...you could image being on a deserted island...dining beside the sea. It is so tranquil and refreshing to be at this location. We ordered the fixed dinner (lunch) special. It came with an appetizer, entrée and dessert. It was all perfect.... More

The restaurant was located directly across the street from our campgrounds. So the ability to walk was pleasing. Reef is located on the ocean with outside and inside seating. Beautiful view! Their seafood is all wild caught and fresh. I ordered sea scallops with REAL mashed potatoes and fresh green beans prefectly cooked (tender but not mushy). All very tasty.... More

We drove into town, and The Reef was 2 miles from the end of our journey. We stopped for a light meal, but then were done eating for the day. Cheese burger and fry, Datil Pepper Burger and fry, were or order. Juicy and tasty. So good, we wanted and did make reservations for the Sunday Brunch Buffet, but, car... More

We had dinner on a Sunday night. Walked in the lobby and a young man was playing on his phone...he said OH the hostess will be right back....5 minutes later she stops flirting with the barkeep and comes to seat us. Our server was very nice, the food was tasty but nothing special. It was pricey, but I would imagine... More

Made reservations for 5 on Sunday, Septmeber 28. They seated those without reservations ahead of us - just told us it would be a few minutes. Finally manager came up and we asked why make reservations if you dont' get seated. She then tried to say it was because they were waiting for a table with a view of the... More

The Reef is one of the St Augustine area's better restaurants that rarely disappoints, EXCEPT for the water. You would think that a restaurant of the quality and stature of the Reef would have a filtration system that could clear the minerals, etc and provide the patrons with water and ice that compliment the quality of their food.

Hate to rate this one so low, because we have previously been very pleased twice before. But today just had too many errors. My wife ordered the shrimp tacos and said the shrimp had a very strange taste. I ordered the fish and chips and was very pleased with the presentation until the second bite when the fish was not...

Great food and service for our large party of 8. Didn't have exactly what I wanted, but the chef added some scallops to a pasta dish on the menu to make exactly what I was looking for. Everyone enjoyed their meal and you can't beat the view!
