Loved the roof top bar! Great gin and tonics. Waitstaff very fun loving. We didn't eat but the food being delivered looked awesome! Would love to come back here for a longer visit!

The Reef in the summer time is amazing. The patio is great, dual bars so the lines are short. Always a good band playing and the food is tasty!

My clients had me meet them here and we ate on the deck upstairs. It was a nice atmosphere and our waitress was very friendly. Our food was delicious even though it took a long time to arrive. I would definitely return to this restaurant.

On a recent business trip to Boise (today actually) I was rather surprised to find an online listing for a Tiki Bar/Restaurant in Boise of all places. My curiosity as well as my lifetime obsession with all things Tiki got the best of me. I'm glad it did! Tasteful yet totally Tiki decor married to a great selection of Tiki... More

We were going to sit outside on the roof deck which is quite nice but there were a lot of flies. They were bad in the Boise area everywhere we went that week. I had the tofu lettuce wraps and others had the Ahi. Both people who had the Ahi said it was wonderful.

They offer rooftop dining and a variety of sandwiches and drinks. On a hot day inside dining is cool and dark, Great sweet potato fries and simply good comfort food. The bar area has real character.

The Reef has outstanding seafood. I have enjoyed everything I've had there. Fish and chips is a specialty. Always fresh and tasty.

We stopped here during Jaialdi where we had wanted to get a chorizo, but there were 400 people in line, so we walked around the corner and found Reef. Read the posted menu and it sounded interesting. We sat outside in the front and it was fun for people watching. We each had a margarita and they were good. I... More
