Hooray for Halva!Posted August 16, 2011 by admin. Filed under Blog

Have you sampled a Halva cookie? Some say it’s the Tahini that makes these understated desserts delicious. Others are so curious and infatuated with them, they continue to do more “research” on this light, signature dessert at Reef’s. If you haven’t tried one, we recommend it – and will happily place a delicate scoop of ice cream on top. Trust us, it’s a pairing that works anywhere.

“The food was fantastic!”Posted August 13, 2011 by admin. Filed under Reviews and Accolades

Excellent. We went thanks to all the positive Yelp feedback. Reef’s lived up to its reputation. The food was fantastic. We ordered the filet, lamb kabob and mussels…all just seasoned perfectly and tasted wonderfully.

We want to thank the waitress, who was also the owner and chef’s wife. You made this pleasant experience. Can’t wait to come back next year!

By the way, I think the menu is reasonably priced. I’d say between 2 and 3 stars. We ordered off the pre-fixe menu, which was great.

“Our friends have been raving about it, and they were right”Posted August 1, 2011 by admin. Filed under Reviews and Accolades

Reviewed August 1, 2011

We live very close and are very familiar with most of the Park City restaurants, but for some reason we had never gone to Reef’s. We have some close friends who say it id their favorite restaurant in town, and they go there a lot, and we finally had a chance to go with them. Granted, they know the owners (from going in so often) – The husband is the chef and the wife is a server/manager. He was not there the night we went, but she served us personally and it was incredible.

For apps, we had bread & hummus, with some fresh ground hot pepper paste that you could mix in depending on the heat you wanted, stuffed grape leaves that were amazing, and a simple ‘slaw’ type salad with a sesame vinaigrette dressing.

For entrees, I had a filet mignon special (they always have a filet mignon on the menu). The filet was cooked perfectly (medium well) and was topped with a wine sauce with cherries (amazing!), with a side of grilled green beans and quinoa (I think with garlic and veggies). My wife had halibut that she said was incredible, and a third had scallops. They have a great wine list, and also nice coffee drinks (turkish coffee etc.) and we finished our meal with a simple, small desert and some cardamom tea!

They also have a great Prixe fixe menu – I think there are three price options and within each price you have some different choices.
If anything, I would characterize the food as middle eastern (the owners are from Israel), but with an asian twist!
We are going out in a couple of nights with two more couples and are hoping to take them back!
