For a special occasion, Ray’s in the City should definitely be considered. Excellent food, fantastic service, and a luxury ambience makes this restaurant one of our new favorites. The quality of the food was worth the price we paid. We will definitely be back.

I got the Seafood platter which was 60.00. My server stated they no longer serve raisin bread which used to come in a bread basket with other assorted breads. I received two rolls only; however, I noticed many other customers received bread baskets, so I am not so certain the waitress was truthful. My food was good, for the exception of my lobster tail, which was charred and inedible. My server initially told me they no longer give free birthday cakes, but I ended up getting one on the house. I overall didn’t like my server but for the most part I enjoyed my food.

I was seated at the bar waiting for the rest of my party to arrive. The bartender was knowledgeable but not friendly. I had one glass of wine. My guests ordered a sparkling water and a coffee. I was never asked if I wanted a second glass of wine, when the bar tab was presented I placed enough cash that the tip would have been 50%. I had to ask for my change and was greeted with disrespect. I asked “is it common for you to receive a 50% gratuity?” With disdain I received change and disrespect. At a restaurant of this quality I believe this was unprofessional and this service provider needs retraining and probation or dismissal.

The dinner was great. Parking was difficult and even though I called to listen to the messages about parking it led me to the incorrect lot. Two lots the exact same name, with no clarification. The restaurant would not validate and I had a hefty parking fee. The experience was drained after that but the food was pretty good and my server was very nice.

The servers were short staffed so i will cut them some slack for late service. Just when you are paying $186 for you and your girl to have an entree and a shared side, you would expect A1 service from the restaurant.

Unfortunately I just didn’t have the same experience that I’ve had at Rays in the past. I came in and once the host realized I was a single diner her whole demeanor changed. She sat me in the side room and made a loud statement about moving the table so I could fit in the booth side of my table even though I was already sat comfortably. Several people turned, it was pretty embarrassing. The server came and also seemed upset that I was a single diner. Asked me if I wanted an appetizer and then proceeded to disappear for several minutes. When he came back and was getting my order that I had already decided on, only then did I get to know the special. I also watched a whole table walk out because apparently their new chef won’t make any alterations to the menu, which seems odd for this tier of restaurant. When they left the same host came in and started complaining that they left and about charging them a reservation fee.

I ordered their special peach margarita and when it came there was 0 peach flavor. I called him over and he insisted that was the right drink and offered to get me another one or something else. Per his recommendation I got the lemon drop which was ok. When he came in he said that the bartender let him try the drink and it was correct, apparently they were pre-made in a batch, and it was right. I said that well it has no peach flavor, it just tasted like a normal margarita which he kinda scoffed at. He left the drink on my table through my whole meal though I wasn’t drinking it since it’s not what I ordered.

I also ordered their wedge salad which was ok. The blue cheese was pretty mild flavor. The steak was disappointing. It lacked much of a sear and it was unevenly cooked. The center was medium rare but the ends were on the very done side of medium. It also lacked seasoning. I didn’t send it back because I only checked the center when he asked which was correct.

Overall I won’t be back. A waste of $100.

Reservations were easy to get (I didn't particularly care for the credit card requirement to make them, but I get it.) I am pretty sure we got one of the worst tables in the house. It is in the corner right outside of the kitchen and beside a door. Fortunately the door didn't have any traffic, the kitchen noise wasn't terrible, and we got to people watch pretty good.

Our waiter, Brian, was a true professional. I really can't say enough great things about him. He was knowledgable about the menu, the wines, and daily offerings. We ordered oysters on the half shell, and both the hot and cold towers. Everything was amazing. I was so thankful that our hotel was right next door - I am not sure my belly could have made it much further.
