The Reef sits so close to the ocean that you could feel salt spray while sitting outside. It was a warm summer evening and even us Floridians were enjoying the AC. Our group of five enjoyed much of the menu and was very pleased with the meal. So if you want to enjoy what Florida has to offer and like... More

The location is just a few miles outside of St. Augustine going North, right on the Ocean. Loveley setting. The service was great, white table cloth etc. Good wine list, not over priced. The food was outstanding. Can highly recommend

This restaurant is a reason to drive from Ormond Beach or the few minutes from Old St. Augustine. Fish grilled perfectly, service professional but friendly, a lovely view, and a wonderful experience.

I decided to give this restaurant another try after a few years break. We had previously had a disappointing meal and were loath to pay the price for food not up to par. We were pleasantly surprised to find they renovated and extended the outside deck band decided to take advantage of this on a nice warm evening. I had... More

The Reef was quite a surprise. We plugged the address in the GPS and had three different A!A routes to choose from. After finally reaching them on the phone to get accurate directions, we headed out. There was adequate parking even for a Friday evening. We had no trouble getting a table and were seated outside to the beautiful view... More

The Reef Restaurant continues to be one of our favorites! Tonight we were celebrating our mom's/grandma's 92nd birthday. As soon as we arrived we were greeted with a warm and friendly smile and we were seated right away. We had made reservations weeks in advanced. The staff was knowledgeable about the menu and courteous and handled our party of 16... More

I am sorry everything took too long for you. As you may have noticed while here it was a busy night. I make no excuses for our performance, you did not visit us to suffer our problems, you came for dinner. It is true we were a little overwhelmed that evening. I expected to be busie this year over last... More
