    I was celebrating my birthday. Edwin, our waiter, was so great and made it a wonderful experience. Everyone enjoyed their food. I really appreciated the birthday card signed by the staff. I’ve never had that happen before. It shows the restaurant goes above and beyond to make patrons feel special special.

    I have significant reservations regarding the cleanliness standards at this establishment, compounded by concerns of racial discrimination. Our visit on Sunday, February 18th, was prompted by positive recommendations from the hotel. Notably, my wife and I, being of Latino heritage, were met with what seemed like a dismissive attitude from the manager, particularly towards my wife and our daughter in her stroller. Despite this initial impression, we proceeded to order food and a beerHowever, we were disheartened to find lipstick stains on the beer glass, which I hadn’t noticed until the glass was nearly empty. We promptly requested a replacement glass and expressed our concerns about cleanliness, especially given the current pandemic situation. Unfortunately, the manager, who had initially appeared aloof towards my wife, did not offer an apology and instead asked us to leave. Feeling perplexed, I sought clarification from the manager, only to be met with further misunderstandings and ultimately, a request to leave once again. In frustration, I requested police intervention, but despite waiting for over an hour and fifteen minutes, they never arrived, as the manager failed to contact them. This experience has left us questioning the establishment’s commitment to equality and hygiene standards

    Had a wonderful experience. My waitress was beyond amazing. Would return. The only thing that I would complain about would be the parking. I called before I arrive to ask and was told to Google parking near the restaurant. I wish they would have mentioned that valet service was available. Other than that it was amazing.

    Valentine's day dinner was the first time we visited Ray's. The wait was quick and we were seated shortly after our reservation. Service was slow as the restaurant was at capacity. Server could have been more attentive, and anything we asked for took a long time to receive. Food was very good, although for the price, I thought the portions were small. We were there for an hour and finally had to request bread as none had been provided. The server took my wife's dessert after she stepped away from the table. I asked her to leave it as there was half of it left, and I wasn't sure she was finished. She had quickly placed my dirty knife on top of the dessert, so she said she couldn't leave it, even though I told her she could since it was my knife. She volunteered to bring another dessert, to which I just agreed. After my wife returned, I stepped away, and the waitress grilled her to see if she was finished. She wasn't aware of what had happened, so she was upset with all of the questioning. She told her she was mostly done with it, but the waitress said she would bring another one, which she had already told me she was planning to do. We waited 35 minutes for the dessert to arrive, and we just took it to go. That was a lot of unnecessary back and forth over a $10 desert for a $300+ dinner. Hopefully this isn't the normal service that is provided, and it was just due to being a full house.

    Valentine’s Day mistake of eating here. No way to know it was a “fixed menu” with courses from Open Table booking. We couldn’t individually select a different option from the two fixed prices offered. Had to both go with the $100 or $125 option menu offerings even if we preferred different items from the other option. Tables were jammed together making you feel you’re dining with the couple at the next table. Service was quite slow and sporadic. Tri-tip was touted as deliciously tender like a filet if ordered at medium or less. At medium, it was horribly tough. Dessert was good.

    I had an excellent evening on Valentines Day, and the pre fix menu selection was great. The only issue was that the server was gone too long on a couple of occasions. It was my first visit to the downtown location. The no validation or parking situation makes this location not so easy-to-use.

    Food was excellent, but the bread was almost inedible and not up to par with the entree. Also, a minor point, but we had to ask our server for drawn butter for our lobster tails. Overall , an enjoyable experience.

    Everything about this place is amazing. The food and drinks are outstanding. Service was great but sometimes we were left waiting for a bit for refills and such. Maybe they were a tiny bit understaffed. All in all though, great place! Definitely need to get there if you never have been before! I recommend the carbonara and the lobster Mac!
