The food was excellent. Just like every restaurant in the country they are understaffed and it took a while to get our food. Everything was great and our server was excellent. I would recommended if downtown and want excellent food with good drinks.

Ray’s was an exceptional experience. The manager, JOHN, was friendly and very welcoming. From the moment we were seated we were made to feel welcome and appreciated as guests. Our waiter, TROY, was very friendly, knowledgeable, efficient and helpful. Our food was amazing. My GA Peach Martini was delicious and potent. For dinner I had thr Oysters Rockefeller and the Parmesan Scallops. The oysters were delicious… tender, juicy and perfectly prepared. Same for the scallops. My sister had the crab cakes. They were even better. My second sister had the Sea Bass; she enjoyed it. We shared the brownie ice cream dessert…. Scrumptious. Ray’s is a must when in Atlanta!

I wish I could Give 10 stars!!! By far mouth watering food, we enjoyed our appetizers, entrees and drinks. Troy was an AMAZING server and made sure our experience was breathtaking. One cool experience was him shaking my drink and pouring it in style. This gives a nice touch! I will Definitely be back when i visit Again.

Validated parking only works if the employees answer the phone and punch in the code - which they didn't, leaving us to pay $16 for 2 hours of parking. Food was decent except cook tried to tell me my 'medium' steak was only 'not medium' on the edges....except the other 2 identical steaks at the table were medium all the way through. Steak removed to be redone...and I was left with no plate or silverware to at least have sides while the rest of the table had their full meal. After several minutes I had to flag down a waiter to request table service so I could join the others in eating something, and rest of table was nearly done with their meals before my new steak appeared. I was made to feel I was imposing on the service staff by requesting my food be cooked as ordered.

My family and I were celebrating my little sister’s high school graduation and decided on Ray’s in the City for her graduation dinner. Although I was shocked to find that the dress code wasn’t strictly enforced the overall ambiance was nice. The staff was welcoming and joyful upon arrival! Our waitress was Tee she was very kind, attentive, and made sure our experience was a nice one. She made sure to make my sister feel
Special on her special day and that meant the world to us. The crab cakes were our favorite out of everything ordered (steak, salmon, shrimp and grits and crab cakes) and the peach margarita I would recommend to anyone!

Seating was quick with having a reservation. Waitress seemed to busy to take care of her section. Took 15min to order a cocktail. Order our food afterwards.
Mussels, grouper, salmon were fantastic. Had also ordered side dishes that never came ( corn Brule and asparagus) as well as a second round of drinks that never came. But overall great ambiance and food. Will go back to give another try in the future. Everyone has a bad shift.

We went to Ray’s in the city for my sisters birthday dinner yesterday and I must say the service is top notch! Our waiters were Bryan, Troy, & Alex and they were all amazing! Very attentive and knowledgeable about the items on the menu! The drinks and food was excellent! I had the filet mignon with whipped mashed potatoes and Mac & cheese and it was awesome. My steak was cooked to perfection! I have no complaints at all. Would definitely recommend you won’t be disappointed!

Upon arriving, we were greeting by a friendly gentleman we later stopped at our table to check on us. Danny was our server that did an excellent job, as well as Tee who was the closer. The atmosphere was very relaxing, and comfortable. The food was prepared just how we ordered it, our cocktails was strong, not watered down, PERFECT! We will definitely visit this location again. We Loved It.....

Food was excellent, ambiance was fabulous. Service was a bit lacking; it took a long time to place our drink order and then to even receive it. We were a little disappointed in that, but the food helped make up for it.

Le me Rave about Ray’s! It was everything we’d expected and more! I have always heard others share how fantastic Ray’s on the River is. So we tried out Ray’s in the city! And it delivered! Excellent service, food, & atmosphere. Can’t wait to try their sister restaurants: Ray’s at the Creek & Ray’s on the River
