Changes You’ll Notice at Restaurants Post-COVID

The coronavirus pandemic has been around for a few months now, and businesses are figuring out how to reopen as safely as possible. Clearly, this is important if we all want to get back to work and back to our lives. But you may not know what to expect when you visit your favourite places going forward. For example, going shopping for clothes or visiting your dentist may require some extra precautions for you to think about. The same is true at your favourite local restaurants. When you know more about what restaurants are changing, you can feel confident going out as safely as possible.




These days, you’re going to see people wearing masks pretty much everywhere you go. Therefore, the next time you show up at Rib ‘n Reef or other restaurants in Montreal, you can expect the servers and staff to all be wearing masks. In addition, guests may be expected to wear masks when they’re not seated at their tables. This helps make restaurants safer environments, so we can all enjoy going out and chowing down on our favourite foods again.


Social Distancing


We all want some more space, whether we’re shopping at the grocery store or at an in-person work meeting. Putting more space between people can help slow the spread, which keeps us all safer. Local restaurants like Rib ‘n Reef are committed to this level of safety, so all diners can enjoy their meals safely and comfortably. Therefore, you might notice some more space in between the tables. Just think … this lets you carry on your conversations in a more private environment. That can’t be a bad thing, right?


You May Want to Avoid Large Dinner Parties


Perhaps you want to go out with your family members or meet up with a few close friends for dinner. However, you may want to avoid dining out in very large parties, especially if everyone will be crowded around the table.


Get Your Own!


Don’t you hate it when you order something, and it looks so good that everyone takes a bite off your plate? You’re all for sharing, but there has to be a limit. You shouldn’t be punished for picking the most delicious item on the menu, after all. Luckily for you, sharing food may not be a great idea right now. But there’s an easy way around this. Everyone can simply order their own dishes. We won’t tell anyone that you really didn’t want to share your juicy steak anyway.


Sometimes, you just need to get out of the house and enjoy a delicious meal with the people you love most. When you want to eat out but still enjoy the safest experience possible, you should make a reservation at Rib ‘n Reef. We are working hard to ensure our customers and staff stay safe and healthy. As always, you can expect our flavorful signature dishes, attentive service, and relaxing atmosphere for your next special occasion … or your next Saturday night.
