Everything was just ok. For sure not the night I was expecting. Server was solid but everything else was average at best. Not near worth the cost.

The food was really good except for the crab cakes, they looked more like mush than a cake. Our server Danielle was GREAT, very knowledgeable about the menu and drinks. Since this location is in the city, you don’t have a choice but to valet park and that was $25. Overall, I’ll recommend this restaurant to others and I would definitely return again.

Could not have asked for a better meal. We were seated in the booth by the band. Everything from service to food was perfect. The manager even stopped by to say Happy Valentines.

The 3 of us were initially disappointed at the condensed menu. However, the food more than made up for it. Food was excellent, tender, moist, tasty and just plain all just right.

Rays is one of our favorite places to eat when we are downtown, but I was disappointed in the set menu on Valentines (which we were not originally told about when we made reservations several weeks in advance). The quality of the food was okay - but definitely not worth $90/pp - even in downtown Atlanta. Service was great, but ambiance was medi-ocre - quite a disappointment for such a special day.

My problem was with the parking. A long distant between Restaurant and Parking deck. and parking deck was hard to locate. Not sure what you could do to improve the problem. The long walk maybe better in the summer.

Caliber of expectations (based on reviews) were not met. Overpriced food for quality received. Food tasted like anything I would have received at a Chili’s or Applebee’s. Waiter was nice but service was slow. Do not recommend if you have plans after dinner (e.g. a play, symphony, etc.)

The service and food was excellent. Although I didn’t care for the oysters Rockefeller they way Ray’s makes them, our service quickly replaced my order with a bowl of delicious lobster bisque.

I requested a romantic booth for Valentine's Day. We were seated in a row of half table half booths with couples on both sides of us. The food was good, but the prix fixe menu was overpriced compared to the regular menu prices. When I asked about our seating arrangements, I was told that it's just a request and that was the best they could do. Overall, the experience was good, but not the best I've experienced at this location. I opted for the flower package and I think that was what saved the day.

Felt like our server didn’t want to serve us because she was very uninterested in us when waiting on us but very energetic to the people that were of the same race as her when waiting on them right beside us. Then gave our table to someone else but still served the tables to our right and left. Other than that, the food was great at lunch and the location was great.

It was really nice..... I will go again. We made reservations and the moment we walked in our table was ready. Very intimate scene, perfect for date night. Food was good, service was a little slow toward the end of our dinner but overall it was nice.

Pre-Valentines dinner. The menu was smaller than normal but they still offered all the favorites.
We had such an amazing time we were really able to enjoy and take our time and make this day special.
The staff treated us like we were the only ones there. Everything was great. This is a go to for us!

Our waiter was Jesus and he was excellent! The speciality cocktails at Ray’s we’re off the charts. We had the four course dinner and we were not disappointed with any course ending with Key Lime pie and Butter cake. The live music in the bar was a great way to end a very special dining experience! Highly recommend Ray’s!!

Fantastisches Steak, sowohl das Filet als auch das T-Bone.
Das Angebot an alkoholfreien Getränken könnte besser sein.

Everything was great. We sat in the bar area. Alaya was our server and she was super. We had two mahi mahi special and the ribeye both were on point. The pineapple margarita is a must. Be sure to ask for a sugar rime.

Decided to dine at Ray’s on this past Saturday night, being that we were in Atlanta from Philadelphia for the skin care convention. I believe our waiters name was Terrence, originally from New Jersey. His service was beyond phenomenal. Knowing that was our first time there, he helped us make our drink and food selections. Also provided some great back home conversation. I would definitely visit this location again when I return. The amazing lobster and service made it a great experience. And that Warm Butter Cake at the end was beyond words!

Amazing food. Had no clue they no longer did sushi, so that was disappointing since we chose Ray’s because my wife wanted Sushi. But even without the sushi, the food at Ray’s is always great.

Arrived 10 mins early for our reservation but had to wait 20 minutes past our reservation time. Restaurant and staff appeared to be wholly unprepared for a Saturday evening rush...

Absolutely Fabulous! We dined prior to attending a concert in Downtown. The cocktails, appetizers and entrees were beautiful and delicious. I am only sad I didn’t have any room for dessert! Servers and all staff were awesome. Definitely will be going back on our next trip.
