    Beautiful venue with top notch service

    I’ve gotten so many compliments about my wedding reception. I used the Pacific Ball room which comes with an attached patio (indoor out door reception, awesome !) they turned the fire pits on for us and we had the bar and photo booth outside , it was awesome . You get views of the ocean ,light house , and shoreline village . The food was amazing . We had plates service , servers were awesome . Everything went senselessly. I have fond memories of that reception and how beautiful everything looked . I love the reef.

    The Reef totally helped me out and really saved me! I had originally booked our reception at another place near Seal Beach that had an amazing view. Well, with 4 months to go that place called me and cancelled on me. I was so bummed because not only was the view amazing, but the price was also just as amazing. We all have budgets to stick by so I was extremely disappointed and didn't think I'd find anything comparable. I called Jamie at The Reef and explained my situation and then went to see her that same day. She gave me a few options of what they could do for me. Being that my wedding is on a Monday made things a lot easier. She was able to put together a package for us that was only a tiny bit more than the first placed I booked. I just about cried! And even though it's a tad bit higher, everything is much better! The appetizers and main dish options are incredible. The view...breathtaking. The reception room is large and has an attached patio area with 3 fireplaces. I am beyond excited to have my reception there this coming Feb 2016. I am so so happy that my first choice backed out on me, as it turned out to be an awesome bummer. Thank you Jamie and The Reef for really helping us out.

    We had an amazing reception and it was perfection when it came time to everyone at the reef doing exactly what we wanted. The bartender at the open bar could have had a better attitude from what I hear but overall....The staff was very attentive!

    It was a pleasure having my Wedding at the "THE REEF"! The top deck was so beautiful with the view of the Water, Queen Marry & all the many White Doves that were let go there. This is by far the best location to have a wedding at & is why I had mine there!
