Once again Ray’s was spectacular. The filet mignon is amazing. The salads very tasty, the sides are great. The atmosphere is stunning. We.were seated at a nice corner window table with a great view of the Chattahoochee River. Thanks Ray’s for making my birthday special.

The food was not good for all the money you pay. The Mac and cheese looked and tasted looked like it was from a box. The creamed spinach wasn’t cooked all the way and the cheese wasn’t even melted inside. I was highly disappointed in the food.

The customer service was excellent. It was a very beautiful restaurant. I just wish the food was better.

The appetizer and main course were good but desert was not.
Service was bad. We ordered champagne and they brought it after we had finished our appetizers, when they brought it we had no champagne glasses or chiller so they left sitting on the table for another 5 minutes minimum. We had to ask several times for water refill. One server instead of taking care of the basic things made a dance, totally unnecessary and inappropriate.

We came to Ray’s on the River to celebrate my husband’s birthday- Our first time there... Needless to say, they “Nailed It”.... The staff was very friendly and attentive- We got a seat near the window with a beautiful river view, in the evening the ambience offers an elegant upscale dining experience.

The food was excellent!! All of our steaks were cooked to perfection-yummy oysters on the half shell -was a perfect appetizer... not to mention the lobster risotto and the brussel sprouts with cauliflower are to die for!

Will definitely come again!

Hubby and I celebrated our anniversary. Everyone from Hostess to Wait staff wish us a happy anniversary. We got free champagne and dessert. The staff was very attentive and food was awesome. A bit pricey but you get what you pay for. We will definitely be back on our next special occasion.

Ray's is a popular place for a good reason. The food is excellent, the service is excellent and it's a beautiful place. In the past, the price you paid for their success was that it could be a very busy place. So with the pandemic, I was concerned about making a Friday lunch reservation. I got there early and it was perfect. Clean, spacious and very COVID compliant. I had a simple steak and bleu cheese salad and it was fantastic. If you miss dining out, but are concerned about being safe, pick an off-peak time and enjoy.

We came to Rays for my boyfriends birthday and had a really great evening. There was live music and the food and service was phenomenal. The staff did a really great job of making his birthday very special. I would recommend Ray's for any celebration. Great food, romantic atmosphere, and great scenery.

We were in town for a business class and Ray's was included on a list from our hotel concierge. When we looked it up on Open Table, we were intrigued.

I cannot imagine a better experience! From the moment we walked in, the hostess was so very friendly with her southern charm. The piano music was an added bonus to the experience.

We enjoyed the Chattanooga River view from our table -- we could just see ourselves spending summer nights out there.

We ordered the salmon -- so good -- and the Delmonico Ribeye. The Delmonico was one of the top 3 steaks I've ever eaten. The first couple bites I questioned -- and then hit gold. So much melt in your mouth decadence!

Caesar salad dressing was perfection and just the right amount to cover each romaine lettuce leaf. Mixed cauliflower and brussel sprouts had a sweet taste were devine.

I'd visit Atlanta again just to eat at Ray's!!

I’m not sure why it took so long for our entree to be delivered. I can only assume the order was misplaced after we ordered. Surrounding tables that were seated well after us received their entrees well before we did. This is the first time in over 20 years while dining at Ray’s this has happened.

Very over rated place, the food was NOT at all what we expected. My husband ordered the special which was $53.00, the food was heavily salted, his steak was not freshly cooked. After speaking with the manger, all we got was a I’m sorry. The Atlas restaurant is by faaaar a much better choice with superb service and impeccable cooked to order food from start to finish.

Rays has had some Happy Hour specials for as long as I can remember. I visited Rays January 7 to learn Happy Hour specials have gone away. This is very disappointing especially since its not reflected on their website like the specials used to be.
