    This place was lively and lovely. The wait staff was great with their recommendations and the food was top tier. Could’ve done with a bit more ‘prompt’ service but everything that came was correct. And again, everything we ate was delicious.

    I have been coming to Rays on the River for some time now, and we have seen changes in the menu which we like, but some of the quality has decreased. My husband loves the crab cakes, but this visit the crab cakes were not the best. We will be back, but just know to try go back quality of food.

    Your on-line reviews indicated that the food was great but the service left something to be desired. Six people ordered six different entrees and everyone enjoyed their meal. The service was attentive without being solicitous.

    The high prices do not seem to match well with the quality of the items served. The calamari and shrimp appetizer was fried and barely retained its batter. I ordered lemonade and was greeted with Minute Maid, which should be banned from an establishment with a dress code. Lobster and scallops seemed to be a bit undercooked and the seasoning was as light as the portions for a $65 “seafood platter.” However the praline was exemplary, and it is a cute place for those that are all about the smoking mirrors.

    The food in general was great. Excellent fresh calamari, the wine was great but at these prices the glasses are a complete disappointment. The steak salad was great but the meat was not tender at all. Definitely had to put a lot of pressure cutting it. The bread on the sandwich in the photo is cheap and too much. A better quality bread would seem a better choice. Fries were great. The keylime pie was lovely but completely overpowered by the raspberry syrup which the base soaked up, this ruined it. There was no way to avoid it. Sometimes just leave things alone. The Rays coffee. This was a complete fail, cold, and the presentation, who in their right mind thinks this is acceptable, All in all an average lunch. They need to work on some things

    We attended later in the evening. Sat down at 9:30. We were treated as an end of the evening after thought. Food was average. Entree (fish) was over cooked, a piece of fish 2”x 4”. At a cost of $44.00 per entree. Not again.

    Arrived early, hard to predict traffic when you’re coming from outside of Atlanta. Staff worked around it. Pace was a bit slow, as wait staff seemed to be over-extended. Two hours start to finish. Beautiful views of river. Dress code not enforced based on what I saw. Food and atmosphere were perfect for this special occasion.

    Worst dining experience at this restaurant ever! Requested a quiet booth when I reserved our table. However, was placed near the bar (Very NOISY) when there were tables vacant downstairs. The hostess was no help and needed a charisma transplant. Our waiter, Addison was nice but Very Sloooow with service. He left us alone for long periods without checking to see what was needed. In addition, never asked if I wanted a second cocktail. Also, my husband and son had to wait an extremely long time to get their second drink order. Our food was luke warm. Upon leaving, while in our car, the valet asked my husband if he had tipped him? Very rude and disrespectful when we Venmoed at his request. We chose this restaurant for a special occasion because we have had great experiences in the past... Not the case for future dining opportunities.
