Wonderful all around: seafood selection/freshness/preparation, knowledgable/attentive/friendly service, energetic ambiance, inventive cocktails and a fabulous/good value wine list from around the world.

We had a terrific weeknight dinner at Reef, and the what made the experience even better was the professional nature of the wait staff. Our waiter James knew the ins and outs of the menu - his suggestions were right on! Try the crabcake appetizer...wow!

Reef is hands down one of the restaurant treasures of Houston. My husband and I have been three times, each time a different and remarkable experience. It's fancy yet it won't break the bank. Expect to pay $30 for and entree and $15 for an...More
