My girlfriend and I tried this place out for our anniversary. It was amazing. The ambiance and food was great. Edwin, our waiter, was astounding. We look forward to returning in the near future.

Food was outstanding, very professional with top-notch service. The drinks - be careful cause you can’t have just one. They are “Great” and the desert was smooth and creamy.

Made reservations for 8. Needed to make changes and they were very accommodating. Kitchen closes at 9 so everything felt very rushed. Food was not worth the price.
Tee was super nice. Sweetest person ever. I would visit again just for her vibe and personality.

Ambiance was nice. Food was mediocre for the price. People came in t-shirts and gym shorts. Servers were nice but unavailable due to multiple tables. They brought out a complimentary slice of cake for my dad’s birthday which was nice.

Overall, Rays on the River (in Sandy Springs) was a much more professional and personal experience.

We were afraid we would not be able to get a table at the last minute, but I looked on Open Table and reserved without any trouble. So glad!
My peach margarita was suggested by a server and was incredible.
The atmosphere was elegant and had good energy.
The blackened trout with wasabi over shredded brussel sprouts was so good that I will order when I return.
“T” was a beautiful personality and was subtly attentive…so charming!

Ray's food is always stellar. We go there every time we are in town. This time though, the service started out great, and then something happened along the way and our waiter and waiter's assistant disappeared for a LONG time. Never got my coffee, and we were never able to order our desserts. Getting the check took forever. Fortunately, the party next to us were celebrating their own special occasion with a cake, so they sent over all their desserts to us, in an extraordinary gesture of kindness and joy. Overall we left full and happy, but this time it was not due to the service, it was because of the food and atmosphere.

From getting the reservation on open table, to being greeted by the reservation desk, and being seated at the time requested, we were impressed. But the true test was the service and the food-both were fantastic. Servers wore masks, they were so professional and friendly. The pandemic has depleted the work force, but Ray’s far exceeded our expectations-where did these superior servers come from? Ok-the meal-we started with pimento cheese fritters-
a must on any order! Scallops on risotto, scampi in buttery linguini, Brussels sprouts, creamed corn brûlée -we were in heaven. And we ate more than a human should consume but we had missed enjoying a delicious meal in such a wonderful environment. Thank you Ray’s for doing a super job reopening in such a glorious manner. Delicious!

Well for a restaurant that has a policy of you lose your table if your 15 minutes late and we charge you if your whole party doesn’t show up, they need to make sure they don’t leave you waiting. We got there in a rush to make sure we were on time just to wait for 35 minutes for our table. What fair is fair. If I have to be on time, they need to be on time. And the restaurant was so loud that we couldn’t hear the person sitting right across from us. But the service and food was amazing.

Another delicious meal at Ray's in the City. We were happy to find that Ray's had survived the pandemic and was still open and serving their brand of perfection. Filet was an incredible choice with Brussels sprouts and cauliflower side. Horseradish crusted black grouper was so delicious! We left very happy. One comment for diners to know, their version of sangria is VERY sweet...VERY. More like a fruit punch than a sangria. It was good, just not at all what I was expecting. Not as refreshing as a traditional sangria since the punch aspect of it made it a heavy tasting drink. Would be a great wedding reception punch though.
