After all these years, this restaurant remains wildly popular; the roar of national buzz, not to mention Reef’s broad menu, excellent and gently priced wine list, and social set of regulars, means the serene, sea-themed space is packed to the gills on weekends. But don’t be surprised if you experience inconsistencies in cooking. Things began swimmingly with appetizers: rich butternut squash ravioli, piping-hot fried shrimp rolls with a spicy Thai dipping sauce, and those luscious (gratis!) warm rolls with jalapeño jelly. Alas, the seafood gumbo was watery, and the grilled swordfish with long beans and basil was overcooked.
