I have been going to the reef for a few years now, and I love it. I was never really a big seafood fan but after eating their for the first time i became one. The first time I had oysters was at the reef and now I'm hooked. The place is not dirty, the food is hot and fresh, and the staff seem to be in good health. The one area that needs improvement, is the timeliness of the staff. after being seated it took a godd 5 min before we met our waitress, and another 10 min after that before she took our order. Now I have to say that this isnt common practice, at least from my experience it has been the same waitress on different occasions. Overall the Reef is a great place to eat, meet, or have a drink. The atmosphere is pretty laid back, there are a few TV's which usually shows whatever game is playing. Prices are pretty fair, and the portions are generous. thur-sat the place is packed, so go early. Great food, Cool place. Give em a try and Im pretty sure you wont be dissapointed.
Quaint but elegant establishment that's been around for quite awhile. Although there are a number of menu choices, they are noted for their crepes. I usually order the crepes coq au vin. (chicken in a wine sauce with toasted almonds) You can get one or two with a salad and various breads. Outstanding desserts are also available. Try the chocolate cherry cordial pie. (chocolate mousse in a pecan crust.) You will be sharing this with the table because it's a generous portion. The Sunday brunch is one of the best around. Make reservations!
I have been to many places in the greater cincinnati area, and the Precinct has the best atmosphere, service and steaks. I recommended all of my family and friends to enjoy the experience. If you want a great steak, go to the Precinct. Any other steak place is just mediocre!! And make sure you have a drink at the bar. The bartender makes the best appletini and he is a great person to strike up a converstation with!!
