I ordered the salmon risotto, it was extremely dry, salmon over cooked. A friend of mine order the trout, it too was dry, door was very bland, no seasoning, another friend had the chicken and she said it was delicious, I had to send my food back. Mac and Cheese was good, but the lobster was over cooked.

Wanted to dine with another couple at some steak and seafood restaurant to have variety. I had the ribeye. For the price I was expecting a prime cut with enough far for moisture and flavor. It came up just a bit short. It was cooked correctly. My side was grilled asparagus which could have been grilled a bit more.
I started out with a Ceasars salad and asked for salt and pepper when it came out. They brought a pepper cracker but no salt ever appeared.
The rest of my party had the salmon over risotto. Waitress said it would be prepared Medium, which they were fine with. Again, asked for salt and pepper, which never arrived.
After the other husband got halfway through his salmon said he couldn't continue to eat it because it was too raw. Talked to the waitress and she said she would get another. The manager came over and apologized and agreed that it was more Medium Rare than Medium. He left and we continued to wait for a refire on the salmon. The ladies' salmon was a bit better toward Medium and they continued to eat. However, the risotto was too mushy. (If you areca Chef that is going to chance having risotto come out of your kitchen, you better make sure a Sous Chef knows how to actually cook it)
When I had finished my steak and the ladies finished their dishes, the table was cleaned off including my friend's half eaten salmon. The waitress was walking by and we asked about the salmon and apparently either she or the manager didn't ask for a refire on the salmon.
We said we needed to go so just give us the check. As she was walking away, I asked her if my friend's meal had been taken care of.
With a snarky voice and attitude her answer was "Yes, I have already taken care of it Sir."
So the review and below typical tip (which I can't remember the last time I left less than 20%) was due.

Overall very good experience. Service could've been a little quicker but we understand that all restaurants are having issues with staffing these days. Though we'd prefer a little quicker service it was not overly slow and all the staff were excellent.

Definitely pricey, but the food was delicious and the service was great! We celebrated a birthday and ordered the shrimp cocktail, oysters Rockefeller, broiled seafood Platter, NY strip steak and shrimp, lobster Mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, and lump crab cake dinner. I will say that we have had better steak. Overall, I would definitely recommend.

Made a last minute reservation on a Friday night while in town. We were seated upon arrival. The wait staff of Jesus and Alex were great. Very professional, attentive, and knowledgeable of the menu. The food was presented very nicely and was very good. I highly recommend Ray’s Downtown while in Atlanta.

After being seated, it took a while for someone to serve us. Once I asked “if anyone was working”, everything fell into place. Our waiter Edwin was really good along as well as his assistant. Not sure why it took so long for someone to acknowledge us once seated.

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.
