I had my wedding here and the place is beautiful. The person I was working with her name was Tony she was not quite as prompt with replying as I would have like but she was great when I did hear from her. The placed was beautiful and the scene is gorgeous. My day was very special and the view just topped the cake.

The wedding itself was great. Our captain in charge of our event, Lucy, was great and made sure we were taken care of.
The special event staff itself was a different story. I had to keep reaching out to them to get answers and there were times I didn't get a direct answer which was a little frustrating.
Overall, the venue itself is great and the views are beautiful.

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!

this is a great place to do the wedding, but we had some problems, they had 3 weddings the same day. we brought the flowers at 2:30 pm to get everything ready for the ceremony was at 5 pm and the reception at 6 pm.
the manager didn't let us take the flowers inside the restaurant until 4 pm and it was hot outside so it was damaging my flowers, so they had to leave and come back which it damage so of my flowers and the reception room wasn't ready until 4:30 pm when they told me the reception was going to be ready at 4 and upstairs for the ceremony on the sunset deck was suppose to be ready after 2 pm, but they had another wedding and didn't have no place for my flowers. so my ceremony had to start at 5:30 pm, with everybody running and my guest had to help putting all my arrangements. I really have a great family and friends but not a good organization of the restaurant and i booked my wedding a year in advanced, so there is no excuse for this.
At the reception they didn't have the champagne for the toast, (how can you have a wedding without champagne?) they apologized and got champagne for everybody and some few more mistakes that they had to fix at the last minute. there is no communication between the girls at the office and the people who takes care of the wedding. At the end the manager fixed all the problems and made my wedding to be unforgettable.
Advise: Make sure they have everything write down on your contract until the last detail

Our wedding at The Reef was fantastic. We worked with Jamie and Jennifer, both of whom were pretty much the pinnacle of wedding planning pros. At every turn they were there to fix any issues we encountered. During our first walkthrough we had discovered that the curtains needed some cleaning, and that the ceremony location was somewhat lacking of plant life for some color. They wound up steam cleaning everything and planting some flowers in the flower pots.
The waitstaff was incredible and the food was phenomenal. Many times you go to weddings and hear that the food was great at the tasting, but bland at the wedding. This is absolutely NOT the case. In fact, I felt the food was better at the wedding than the tasting!
Those shopping for a lower-priced wedding will be happy to know that included with the ceremony/reception fee is also the ceiling decorations ("swag") and chair covers/table cloths. On top of that, they work with a couple of GREAT bakeries to provide you the cake (also included), to help you cut costs.
The view is amazing. Right on the water in the Long Beach harbor, right next to the Queen Mary, it's already scenic enough. When the sun goes down and the lights come on, however, it goes from great to mind-blowing. At one point we had a good 40% of our party hanging out on the patio, taking in the view. This also made for some beautiful photos for us.
For your guests, valet parking is included, and the lot is sufficient for all but the largest of weddings.
I'd highly recommend this site to anyone looking for a great wedding with an amazing view and a nice breeze off the water. As an added perk, the Queen Mary blows its horn at 12:00 and 6:00, so if you're lucky you may be able to time it just right.

Was married at the Reef 9/29. I was very happy with the outcome of our event.However,the process of working out the details was not as easy as I expected. The reef does not have a preferred vendor list. For the most part I felt like i had to fetch for information from them because they are not very helpful with recommending people they usually work with.They held an open house that I did attend but not because I was invited to, I just happened to call at the right time asking for help and was told about the event. I feel like The Reef can do a better job of making the planning process a lot easier for anyone getting married. The food was great and so were the staff! Luckly for us everything worked out just fine the day of the event.

I booked both my wedding and rehearsal dinner months in advance. I booked the rehearsal for a Thursday so that it would not conflict with any other weddings but The Reef double booked it anyway. This would have been fine but they waited tell a week before the dinner to call me and tell me about it. I had to cancel the dinner with 25 people.
I deeply regret having my wedding at The Reef.
