The food was very good. I always get the crab cakes and they never disappoint. Our waiter Troy was amazing. He was very knowledgeable and always on time. There was never a time we were looking for him. My heart aches for the hostess Theresa. They have a dress code and so many people were not adhering to it. It explains it clearly on their website and on the big sign before you walk in. Business casual means NO tennis shoes, hats, and athletic wear. Management please turn these people away and do not allow them to disrespect your hostess.

Our server was amazing and took great care of us. My friends and I went for my birthday. We enjoyed every bit of it from drinks to dessert. One of my friends wasn’t happy with her choice of entree and immediately the server and manager made sure she got something she would enjoy.

We were celebrating a birthday - the folk at Ray's brought out a nice card to the birthday girl and brought out a delicious dessert without being asked! It was a little chilly in there, but that's the only thing that wasn't perfect!

The food was excellent. Just like every restaurant in the country they are understaffed and it took a while to get our food. Everything was great and our server was excellent. I would recommended if downtown and want excellent food with good drinks.

Hallie was magnificent ! She made a great meal even better due to her concern for our satisfaction. The other people from her team Najee, for example, was also fantastic and was on top of his game as well. Neither were bothersome but both were attentative and again treated us with what we felt was sincerity. The drinks from the bar, also very very good. I believe that would have been Teresa, but I am not sure as we did not actually meet her.

The establishment was top notch, the food was beyond description in its presentation and taste, nice ambience and then the service, again, WAS fantastic. Hallie was really special and we will remember her as part of a great anniversary date !

Thanks to Ray's for a wonderful evening ! We will return.

Ray’s was an exceptional experience. The manager, JOHN, was friendly and very welcoming. From the moment we were seated we were made to feel welcome and appreciated as guests. Our waiter, TROY, was very friendly, knowledgeable, efficient and helpful. Our food was amazing. My GA Peach Martini was delicious and potent. For dinner I had thr Oysters Rockefeller and the Parmesan Scallops. The oysters were delicious… tender, juicy and perfectly prepared. Same for the scallops. My sister had the crab cakes. They were even better. My second sister had the Sea Bass; she enjoyed it. We shared the brownie ice cream dessert…. Scrumptious. Ray’s is a must when in Atlanta!

I wish I could Give 10 stars!!! By far mouth watering food, we enjoyed our appetizers, entrees and drinks. Troy was an AMAZING server and made sure our experience was breathtaking. One cool experience was him shaking my drink and pouring it in style. This gives a nice touch! I will Definitely be back when i visit Again.

Restaurant was crowded and lively. The food was ok not outstanding. Was disappointed with the flavor of my steak. The food presentation was very simple. Expected something more fancy for the price. Not worth price to me. The server was prompt and attentive.

Validated parking only works if the employees answer the phone and punch in the code - which they didn't, leaving us to pay $16 for 2 hours of parking. Food was decent except cook tried to tell me my 'medium' steak was only 'not medium' on the edges....except the other 2 identical steaks at the table were medium all the way through. Steak removed to be redone...and I was left with no plate or silverware to at least have sides while the rest of the table had their full meal. After several minutes I had to flag down a waiter to request table service so I could join the others in eating something, and rest of table was nearly done with their meals before my new steak appeared. I was made to feel I was imposing on the service staff by requesting my food be cooked as ordered.

My family and I were celebrating my little sister’s high school graduation and decided on Ray’s in the City for her graduation dinner. Although I was shocked to find that the dress code wasn’t strictly enforced the overall ambiance was nice. The staff was welcoming and joyful upon arrival! Our waitress was Tee she was very kind, attentive, and made sure our experience was a nice one. She made sure to make my sister feel
Special on her special day and that meant the world to us. The crab cakes were our favorite out of everything ordered (steak, salmon, shrimp and grits and crab cakes) and the peach margarita I would recommend to anyone!
