Brought the wrong bottle of wine twice, Did not have the lobster in the Menu. Offered a comped desert in an effort, then overcharged on the check.

Food and service was excellent. Scallops and lobster Parmesan risotto was outstanding. My wife had the flounder with shrimp added. Excellent wine selection. Waiter also helped with my daughter’s friend to get some chicken fingers.
Service was excellent.

Took my wife out for dinner on our vacation in Atlanta. Staff was more than welcoming and the food was incredible! I had the Salmon Oscar while my wife had the Scallops with Risotto. Both are must a must try! Can’t wait to go back the next time we visit Atlanta.

Ray's never fails to please. Always the best in service and food. Reservations are recommended if you don't want to wait over an hour or so at certain times.

The food was amazing but the service was horrible! When you're paying as much as we did for 2 people you expect better service. The service was horrible! We waited on everything or had to ask 2 or 3 times to remind our server. Our food was left sitting in the window for a while so our plate was scalding. Also, the noise was so loud you couldn't enjoy a conversation. The food was excellent but you need to hire more people to help with running if you're going to charge these prices.

Great place to eat if you are looking to splurge. Food was excellent and ambiance was fantastic! Only complaint is their A/C unit may have been broken because it got really hot. Waiters were attentive and made sure we had everything we needed.

Our server Mercury had a poor attitude and forgot an entire meal along with never providing drink refills on our 2 hr visit. Once asked he was ugly about it. The filet and lobster were not cooked as ordered. The check took 45 min. Over all experience was extremely poor and ruined a very special occasion. I spoke with the manager who has made up for it and was so kind.

We enjoyed our dinner at Ray's. The food and the service were both outstanding and while it is expensive we felt we got good value for our money. Our server Rachel was delightful and did a great job.

Very good restaurant. In the city for only 1 night and this was the recommended place. Edwin was our server, not only very stylish glasses, but an excellent server with tremendous menu knowledge. Steak and scallops were excellent and they even brought champagne and dessert for our anniversary.

Tried Ray’s on a business trip. The checkin staff was less than polite and seemed rather annoyed. Walked in without a reservation and was told it would be an hour wait. Walked out, made a reservation online and was seated in 10 minutes. Strange. The service was beyond slow. Our server would disappear for 10 mins at a time as she was assigned too many tables. Our meal took forever due to the gaps in service. Despite the negative experience, the food was delicious. Fried calamari appetizer was fantastic and the crab cakes were big and full of lump crab meat.

It was an amazing meal! I planned to take my employees out after a trade show. I made the reservation on open table as before but I guess I mistakenly chose the following week to make the reservation and once arriving I was told we didn’t have a reservation. I explained the situation and they accommodated us on this very busy night! Thanks!

Started off a bit on the wrong foot with having a business dinner at 8pm and didn’t get seated till 8:45 pm but the management went over and above to make things right!
Once we all had some food in our systems the rest of the night went great and the table service and food were great!

Our waitress was superb! However, she made an attempt to please me on the style of oysters I wanted......the chef should have said, NO we cannot chargrill. However, he made the attempt, they should not have been served!

I wouldn't classify the noise level as "energetic". The food is great and nice atmosphere but not too conducive for a meeting where you would like to hear each other. I would recommend it to a friend but not for a lunch meeting.

Other than the noise this place was great. The food was amazing and I would love to give this place repeat business. I originally wrote a review for this place that was bad. But I realized I had the wrong place in mind. My Scallops were cooked to perfection and the other 3 meals were fully enjoyed and bragged on by my business guests from Canada. The noise was horrendous though and not conducive to business or romantic nights. I would recommend someplace else for either. But for the food I recommend this place all day long.

While we were early and could not be seated right away we did get our table ahead of our reservation. Getting our food was a little slow. We received our food after people around us that arrived after us, but food was excellent and worth the wait. A little expensive but all around worth it.
