Thannks so much for the five star review!! -Ray
The food was bland and overpriced. The service was fine.
Bridget, I am so disappointed to see that you were less than impressed with our food but do appreciate the feedback. While the vast majority of our reviews are extremely positive, our goal is for every meal and experience to be great. We apparently missed the mark here but do hope you give us another try so you can hopefully experience what the overwhelming majority of other happy patrons have experienced. -Ray
Cuvee Ray is a must for wine and food lovers. Chef Joey Churchman is a star. We have followed him from his own restaurant, Bramble & Brine to the Buttery in Lewes and now Cuvee Ray. Every dish is beautifully presented. The deckle is a stand-out. We also had the charred Brussels sprouts, warm kale salad and Tagliolini pasta with asparagus and mushrooms. I appreciated options as a vegan. The back room features a private dining room for large groups. Live music on Friday and Saturday nights in the front room/bar. The service is also top notch so don’t delay!
Isabelle, so glad you enjoyed your experience at Cuvée Ray and we really appreciate such a nice review. I will certainly pass on your praise of Joe's efforts in the kitchen!! We look forward to your next visit. -Ray
the scallops were the best ever!!!!!! and the wine values are just one more reason we keep coming back plus it's always a pleasure to get a table visit from Ray

Michael was our server and did an amazing job of explaining the wine flights and the different selections available. MICHAEL also was knowledgeable with regard to food prep and menu choices, attentive to our needs without being overbearing. Cuvèe Ray has an extensive wine list and menu to which the chef does not disappoint! Our meal with me at all that much better by the entertainment of Joey Fulkerson! We can’t wait to go back and bring our friends! Thank you Ray For the tour of the wine tasting room... perfect for a small dinner party.

Amazing food and wine.
First time at Cuvee Ray, look at the reviews and decided to give it a try. Was not disappointed. We each had the Duckhorn sampler which consisted of 3 of their wines. My husband had the broccoli soup and scallops which he said were very good. I had the Beef cheeks (I know it sounds gross) it was exceptional, tender and favorable. Definitely have to try. Service was very good, nice friendly server. We will be back
Maria, thank you for giving us a try and so glad you enjoyed the experience! Really appreicate the nice review and look forward to seeing you again at Cuvée Ray. -Ray
It was a Sunday night and we were excited to enjoy some wine and good food. The live jazz music was a bonus. The bar dining area was crowded and when we were escorted to a corner high top, I was worried that we would be uncomfortable. Our server Michael took awesome care of us, including allowing us to take our time between appetizers and our meal. My husband had the pork chop which he claims was the best he’s ever had. I enjoyed a flavorful red snapper. The owner Ray visited everyone in the dining area and was visible all night...very proud and welcoming! May folks had their dinner at the bar, too! If you are visiting Rehoboth, make this a must-stop!
I am so glad you enjoyed your experience at Cuvée Ray and thank you so much for the very kind review! I will pass on your compliment to Michael and hope to see you again soon. -Ray
An absolutely excellent experience all the way around.

Service was wonderful as well
Thanks for checking us out and so glad you loved the food. Really appreicate the nice review. Parking should be gettng better very shortly! -Ray
Over-the-top fantastic experience. The wine, the food the service was first class and yet still relaxed. This is a must when in Rehoboth
Tiffany, thank you so much for the very kind comments and for the five star review. Most importantly, I am so glad you enjoyed your experience at Cuvée Ray!! I look forward to seeing you again next time you are in town. -Ray
Highly recommend this place as a great escape from the noise and children of many of the Beach restaurants. Excellent range of properly stored and served wines. Many price points, so would fit all budgets. Shirt bit food list of well done plates. The duck was surprisingly good.
So glad you enjoyed your visit to Cuvée Ray and thank you so much for the recommendation!! It is very much appreciated and we look forward to seeing you again. -Ray
Very good food. The short rib sliders were memorable. Cocktails were excellent as was the wine list
Regina, so glad you enjoyed your experience at Cuvée Ray and thank you very much for such a nice review. We really appreciate it. Hope you come visit us again. -Ray
Hair in the charcuterie board
Pasta appetizer was overly salty, tasted as though it was cooked in ocean water
Flounder Main was so rubbery that it was not edible
Rebecca, I am so sorry to hear about your experience at Cuvée Ray (we don't offer flounder but I get the point) but thank you for your input. I wasn't in the restaurant that night or I would have given you my apologies as the owner in person but please accept them now. We receive overwhelmingly positive reviews so this of course really caught my attention and I promise you that this is not who we are. Please call me at (302) 567-2942 as I would like to see what I can do to make this right. -Ray
Fabulous addition to the Rehoboth Beach restaurant scene. Lovely, interesting dishes, well conceived & beautifully prepared. Great wines, of course, and friendly upscale atmosphere. A must if you stay anywhere within driving distance of Rehoboth Beach.
It was great.
Thanks so much!! Look forward to seeing you again at Cuvée Ray. -Ray
Absolutely the best wine selection and food in Rehoboth!
Mina, thanks so much for the five star review!! Very much appreciated and hope to see you again soon. -Ray
The meat and cheese board was delicious and so unique tasting paired with the flight of pinot noir wines I had. I really enjoy wine and cheese and Cuvee Ray was top notch in providing a wonderful and new experience for me while on vacation. I will definitely be coming back if I am in town and will have to try a new set of wines and cheeses. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys this type of atmosphere with a lovely staff and eloquent chef.
Jennifer, I am so glad that you enjoyed your meat and cheese board and the wine flight and thank you so much for the five star review!! I truly appreciate you taking the time to write such a nice review. I look forward to seeing you again next time you are in town! -Ray
Very disappointed tonight in the experience as there were big fails in service and the kitchen. Have been here several times before and been very happy with food, service and kitchen but not so tonight. The food was generally excellent. Disappointed that the pasta substituted the advertised pancetta with a tasteless sausage and more disappointed that that was not explained in advance or upon delivery. Also surprised that after a long wait for what was explained as newly printed dessert menus, and a wait after ordering we were told the strawberry shortcake (2 of our 4 orders) was unavailable. Water service was difficult to get even though we asked frequently and service just seemed very slow. It was a quiet night and probably too lightly staffed. Our waiter was pleasant and seemed to be trying.
I am so sorry to read about your disappointing experience. I am usually at the restaurant but wasn't last night but as the owner I of course take this very seriously... the things you mentioned should never have happened. Having visited with us before, I hope you can see that this is not how we usually operate. I assure you the issues you raised have been addressed. Please give me a call at (302) 567-2942 as I would like to see what I can do make this up to you. Thanks again for your input -Ray
This was one of the best restaurant experiences we have had in quite a while! Food excellent, knowledgeable server, charcuterie board and rib eye spectacular. One small complaint and partially our fault, we were surprised to see the 2nd bottle of wine recommended by our waiter was more the twice the price of the bottle that we selected. This was minor in light of our fabulous experience. Loved meeting Ray!!
Very happy to see that you had such a great experience at Cuvée Ray and thank you so much for the five star review!! Also, thanks for mentioning the price of the second bottle of wine recommended by the waiter. That shouldn't have happened especially without pointing out the price to you. This has been addressed with the staff and should not occur again. Thanks again for such a nice review and for your helpful comment. Look forward to seeing you again at Cuvée Ray! -Ray
Delicious. Will return for sure.
I know it's a wine bar/restaurant. However, the wines are too expensive. You should offer a larger selection of lower priced ($50 - $80) bottles (of Cabernet Sauvignon).
Service was fine but could use improvement, especially with plate clearing. With both the first course and main, one plate was cleared while the others remained on the table for a while ... but could/should have been cleared at the same time as we were all (four) finished.
While we didn't ask, there were (what seemed to be) bread plates on the table. However, we were not offered bread.
We will be back as the food was excellent.
Thank you for your input... all of which I personally appreciate as we want to address any and all issues to provide the best dining experience possible. I can assure you the issues you raised were addressed. As to our wine prices, next time you visit, please ask to speak to me as I would be happy to guide you to some amazing wines at very reasonable price points (we offer almost 60 wines for $50 or less). Look forward to seeing you again soon. -Ray
We had a very enjoyable dinner at Cuvee Ray. The food was EXCELLENT! Great wine selection. Staff was excellent! Got to talk to the owner for a couple of minutes. Will definitely be returning! Wine was priced fair. Wished we could have stayed longer - musicians were setting up when we left. Nice comfortable (not stuffy or pretentious) environment!
Glad to see that you enjoyed your visit to Cuvée Ray and thank you so much for the five star review!! We very much look forward to seeing you again sometime soon. -Ray
The food was tasty, several delicious options that we shared as a group of 7, including 2 young children. The staff was very accommodating and we were seated in the informal contemporary section of the restaurant, that worked well for us but the entrance to the restroom in full view of the table detracted from the ambiance
Thanks for the nice review! Whenever we are able, we try to arrange our seating to for the best ambiance possible but sorry about your seating in this instance. Please do come back and visit us again. -Ray
We had a nice dinner with a few glitches, which were quickly remedied by the staff. Our party of five had a nice round table in the front near the bay window. We ordered wine and cocktails from the extensive menu. One diner received the wrong cocktail, but our server took care of the mistake immediately. We tried and shared from the small plate menu: the scallops and fried oysters, and the kale salad. We also shared entrees: the duck and the pork chop. All were delicious. The second glitch was that one diner did not get her flat bread. There were profuse apologies from our server, the manager who delivered the late arrival, and finally the owner. That portion of the meal was also comped, which we appreciated very much. Finally, we shared a couple of the desserts: lemon bar -- very tart and delicious. and We liked the many reasonably priced choices from the wind list and tried two bottles that we enjoyed. The night we were there was also the night of a jazz event in the back room, so live music is evidently sometimes available. One note, there are only two unisex bathrooms and the one in the back was inaccessible because of the crowd.
Thanks very much for taking the time to write this review. Try as we do for everything to be as great as it can be, despite our efforts, there are occasional glitches. I am glad to hear you appreciated our efforts in dealing with them. We actually have 3 unisex bathrooms and the two in the back should have been accessible despite the jazz event taking place in that area. Sorry for any inconvenience. We hope to see you again sometime soon (we do have live music Friday-Sunday.) Thanks again! -Ray
Fantastic food and great service. We arrived in time for Happy Hour. Great choices for both food and drink. Sat down for dinner and had a great meal. I had the Pork chop and mom had the barrel steak. Both were great. Dessert was spectacular too.
James, really appreciate the five star review and so glad you enjoyed Happy Hour and dinner with your mom. We look forward to seeing you again at Cuvée Ray. -Ray
Toothsome wines, Lucullan food, pert and knowledgeable service—what more could any diner ask?
William, loved reading the review and so glad you enjoyed your visit to Cuvée Ray! Hope you will visit us again sometime soon. -Ray
Need more food options
Thank you for the review and the comment. We are continually trying to be the best that we can be and considering menu revisions and additions is part of that. Really appreciate the input. -Ray
Absolutely fantastic! We got the private room for my sister's Bachelorette party! Michael, our server, was excellent!!!
Tara, glad to hear you enjoyed your time in our wine room and thanks for celebrating your sister's Bachelorette party with us! I will pass on your compliment to Michael. We really appreciate the nice review and hope you visit us again sometime soon. -Ray
We loved the wine flight selection. There was also a large selection of wines by the glass. We tried multiple things from the menu and they were all good. I particularly liked the short rib sliders. The almond and Olive small plate was also excellent. You have the choice of small plates, appetizers and traditional entrees. We set in the rear dining room it was very quiet. When we arrived happy hour was ending in the front room was a bit loud due to the bar crowd. Both the owner and the manager checked with us to see how our meal was going over the course of the night. Overall I would highly recommend this place if you happen to be looking for dinner at the beach.
So glad you enjoyed the food and wine during your visit and thanks so much for the nice review and recommendation! Very much appreciated. We look forward to seeing again. -Ray
Another visit where both service and food were outstanding. First prize goes to the panna cotta dessert. Evidently, the chef at Cuvee Ray knows his/her business. Highly recommend for quiet dinners or groups.
Carlos, really appreciate such a nice review and recommendation! I will pass on your comments to our head chef and our pastry chef. We look forward to seeing you again at Cuvée Ray! -Ray
We loved the concept and the wait staff but waited for over an hour for our food. Still the food was delicious. Difficult spot for people with small children but would try again without them and in hopes of more kitchen staff.
So glad you liked the food, concept and wait staff but please accept my sincere apologies for any delay in you getting your food. I can assure you that we have addressed the issue you had that night and hope you will give us another try sometime soon. Again thanks for the input. -Ray
Loved this spot. Food outstanding. Wine flights perfect. Great new place in Reho. Def recommend Will go back. Owner Ray came to the table. Great guy. Awesome evening.
Cathy, thank you so much for the five star review!! I really appreciate your kind words and look forward to seeing you again at Cuvée Ray. -Ray
