This was the best place with the best food and even BETTER service. Edwin is the most incredible server we have ever had. He was honest, authentic, efficient and made and incredible cup of coffee. I recommend this place above any other I’ve eaten at in ATL.
Had sushi. It was okay. Ambience is nice.
Amazing, food was great
We had a business dinner after a trade show. Place was packed! Out reservation was delayed but restaurant brought free apitizers
My Family & I experience was wonderful, we will definitely be back. Food was fantastic and so was the service and pricing. Honestly one of the best kept secrets in Atlanta.
The restaurant and food was great! The service was awesome!
Food was ok. Service was great!
Food was good. My lobster tail was sent back because it was overcooked. For some reason a fried lobster tail was sent as a replacement, because our server figured that we would "like that kind better". He was wrong. The overall tone of our server wasn't very welcoming, and wasn't reminiscent of any experience I've had at any of the Ray's concepts. Very disappointing...
We had an amazing time this past weekend. Troy was our server and he provided excellent service. The live band was also amazing!!!
Excellent!! They really made our 10 year anniversary super special and every bite was delicious! Highly recommend and of the Ray's restaurants.
Seated in front of the kitchen, too much traffic from the kitchen. Area where seated was hot and uncomfortable. Mentioned temperature to waiter it was not addressed.
This was my third time visiting this establishment, I was disappointed as I was entertaining a party of 5 from out of town.
This is a great restaurant. The seafood is fresh and the entire experience was excellent.
Food was great and service impeccable!
Wonderful service by Jesus with an easy to understand explanation of the menu and wine list, and great suggestions. Prompt and professional.
Crab cocktail was generous and had exceptional taste. I can’t remember having any better. Broiled seafood platter likewise was cooked to perfection and delicious.
In short, Ray’s went well beyond my expectations and is sure to please. Give it a try!
I went for my birthday and it exceeded my expectation. Everything was absolutely fabulous the food service everything except my reservation was at 8:45 wasnt seated until 9:10 but other than that it was fabulous.
Excellent food and service! Our server was very attentive and the food was amazing. Will definitely be back!
Great selection of both steaks and seafood. Staff was very friendly and the desserts were scrumptious
Food was good, but the service was the best! Had a slightly long wait, even with a reservation. The service we received from our waiter, Jesus, more than made up for it.
I was a little surprised after I paid the bill for 6 people, that one of your servers (not our original server) came by the table....he made a comment to me very quietly, That he had other people waiting. So basically, as we were finishing our drinks, conversation - and he was asking us to leave.
It was obvious that we were about to leave, as we were not ordering dessert, since we had appetizers, drinks and everyone had a dinner. I tipped the original servicer 20%, and then after the tip was done on the machine, this other server asked us to leave.
Here's my other complaint: I sent myself the email receipt. What I didn't know, by not getting the print copy, was that I would ONLY have an itemized food/drink receipt. We prefer to have a receipt with just the total dollar charge, for expensing reasons.
Way too loud. I could literally not hear the other person. Waitor forgot my tea, bread, butter.
Great food! Had the Calamari appetizer, the horseradish grouper & it was both excellent.
We have eaten both lunch and dinner here and have had consistently good food. The service has been hit or miss. On this occasion, we were served gumbo but we had to ask for a spoon twice before receiving one. There was a big convention in town and several football games, and it was clear that the staff was scrambling. Overall, we enjoy this restaurant, but might stick to lunchtime when it’s less busy.
Beat experience we have ever had!! Troy and Brian were our servers and did an AMAZING job! Could not have asked for anything better!!!
Went here primarily looking for sushi which were the relevant photos shown in google maps/was advertised as in search but were not offered a sushi menu upon being seated. It was really confusing at first but maybe being seated in a sushi ordering default area has to be specified? Not sure. The waiter showed us the menu in-depth and read through almost every category while pointing at one for about 5 minutes without asking if we needed any help or if we needed time. The prices were a lot higher than we expected. I would like to say that the quality of food justified the prices but I can't. I think that the rent for the location is the case because we certainly did enjoy the food. I have been dining in that area for about 8-9 years now and would recommend it to people who want to go somewhere restricted to the area for a good meal (we were attending Dragon*Con) but to just be prepared for the bill.
Celebration for my husband's 70th birthday. Party of 8. Jennifer, event planner arranged for table with candles and cheese cake with a candle for my husband's dessert. The service was excellent, as was the food...our table had steaks and seafood and all were wonderful!!
Went around 2pm and it was not crowded at all even though Dragicon was going on. Ordered the crab cakes and shrimp and grits. Everything was good. Would go back and recommend..
They mixed something up when taking the order but very much compensated for that and the food was great!
Small portions, large prices and I'm sure you've heard it before. Other than that solid experience.
Not bad, but certainly not great. I would have preferred smaller servings and bett quality and presentation.
Love this restaurant! The service is great. Offerings, both food and drinks are varied and always delicious, and the staff is so friendly and helpful with recommendations. Really enjoy the live music as well. Next time we’re in town we’ll be back.
WE've eaten at Ray's on the River a number of times and it's been 5-star each time. it seemed to us, Rays in the City was not "on its game" the Saturday we went. It was uncomfortably warm in the restaurant, but when we mentioned it, we were told: "that's just the way it is in here". We had a Rainbow Roll as a starter. The sushi rice was crunch as in underdone. Our entres were fine--we had Blackened Red Fish and _____ with Roasted Brussell Sprouts and Cauliflower. There was one piece of Cauliflower and the Brussell Sprouts were tough. They graciously took those off our check. All this was surprising considering our reservation was 5:45 pm, prior to going to a show. All in all, the fish was great but everything else was just okay.
We visited Ray's in the City prior to a concert at the Fox Theater. Everything was excellent including recommendations from our waiter, food, ambiance, and service. What a wonderful place to share a special date night. We got the surf and turf special and it included Fiji apple salad, lobster and steak, and killer desserts. A must when you are in the city.
Ayisha took care of us and she was AMAZING!!! Everything was so good we are going back tonight!!
Steaks were very plain and lacked flavor. Very disappointed given the high end prices. Sides were decent but not great.
Ray’s is one of my all time favorite restaurants in Atlanta. They have great food that is fresh and absolutely delicious. I go here for special family events and work meals whenever I have the chance. Great place. You won’t be disappointed!
We had a business dinner at Ray's -- everything was outstanding -- food, service, and surroundings.
My guests and I very much enjoyed our seafood entrees. Excellent service by our waiter.
Great cocktails and crab cakes
Food was excellent! Ask to sit in Troy’s area...he will take complete care of you!
Troy was an excellent host and he made our anniversary dinner special with the details and knowledge to provide a great experience
