“The views are awesome - make sure you get a seat in the lower level by the window.”
“and the crab cakes are a personal favorite.”
“The service was excellent and our waiter even recommended a great bottle of wine.”
“Clean, attentive staff, great sushi - that was my experience at Ray's on the River.”
“Only a few Omelett choices, the meat on the buffet wasn't cooked, cold chicken, overcooked mussels, bland desserts, should I go on?”
“This is the best place to spend a special occasion or holiday!”
“There is much more as to how poor the service was, but in the end we all had only one bill.”
“don't think any entrees were below $25 so this can be a pricey meal considering a lot of the entrees and sides are a la carte.”
“Started with the fried green tomatoes which were very tasty and quick - they literally came out about 2 minutes after I ordered them.”
My favorite restaurant in Atlanta, great food, great service and the ambiance is outstanding!
Very Bad Experience. My night at Rays was terrible due the average food and the poor service. Our waiter was a sarcastic fool. The food was nothing to rave about and I feel that Rays is one of those places that tries to survive on the past. Do not waste your time as there are many other great places to eat in Atlanta.
it was not my first time dining here, but probably will be my last due to a poor service and quality of food. it started when the service first approached our table and asked if we wanted some water to drink instead of asking would you like something to drink. my wife had her mind set on the grouper because she loved it from our last visit, but the server sugested that she try the special fish of the day which was called Tile fish or something like that. i wanted to order the rib-eye steak but again the server sugested the lamb chops special. our guest that we brought with us ordered the CHICKEN which was the best dish. the fish sauce was awfull and so heavy and no taste. the lamb chops was 2 small chops with no taste. when my wife complained about the fish, the server went and got her the grouper without any sauce or lemon, the manager then came in and said that this was the first time they used that fish and that they were trying it. we had to ask for lemon with the fish, we had to ask for straws for our drinks, butter with our bread. the hostess at the door never said to have a good night and thank us for coming. this was a horrible experience.
i did not receive a call back like i usually do after dining in. my check# was# 6105, tble33/1, gest 3, jan 18,12
Highly Recommende!. The food was delicious and I really love the place .. it was cozy :-) I highly recommend this place for people who would like to relax and enjoy their food and time :-)
Came here for a business dinner. The ambiance is very nice, would have liked to have sat out on the deck, but it wasn't open. The oysters were so smooth! The scallops were a large portion and were pretty yummy. Would definately come here again.
The wedge salad looked amazing too.
Great Happy Hour. We came here after work last friday, very classy place. Had some raw oysters and calamari and sat in their piano bar, great time!
change name to Ray Is A Jerk. I have been a patron for many years, both before the renovation and after. The last time I dined there, I overhead Ray berating the manager in front of anyone who would listen. We have no idea what happened and don't care; we shouldn't have to listen to this while spending $200 on dinner. The owner is a jerk who obviously treats his staff badly, and he will never receive another red cent from us.
My First Visit. I went to Ray's for the first time last November. Though the food was just ok, not the way it sounds on the menu, the service was not very good at all. After a long wait, even with a reservation, we got our table, then we had to wait again for our drinks and then wait more to order our meals. It was like they were understaffed and then the waiter kinda slipped and spilled food all over the table next to ours. Maybe it was just a bad night, but with the prices they charge, everything should be perfect and it wasn't.....
Wonderful Experience!. I had never been to Ray's, but while in Atlanta on 10/13/10, I had the pleasure of dining at Ray's with 2 of my friends, and we all found it to be absolutely wonderful! Our waiter, Bobby, was the best I think I have ever encountered, and will certainly request him the next time I am there. He was very knowledgeable in the menu items, and offered wonderful suggestions - all of which we took, and were quite pleased. He made sure we had everything we needed throughout the entire evening. This was truly a very pleasant experience! Thanks Bobby!
I have been going to this resturant for over 15 years.
The food is very good, the renovations done recently are very tasteful, the trio (Jazz) is always good music.
The service is the only thing I would write as a mini problem. The staff is very professional however, the time it takes to get served just depends who you get as a waiter or waitress. People can be very critical on these reviews, but I think Rays has consistately gotten better in all areas. I would recommend Rays to anybody. I have the Salmon Oscar with whipped potatoes and it was devine! The Osyters on the half shell....DON't order!! They are so small you need glasses to see them. And they are 20 bucks!!! Wait for Appalachcola osyters to come back in season!!!
