Amazing. Took my parents for my mother's birthday. Service was excellent and so was the food!!
Fine dining at its best. Superior service and great food.
I haven't been to Ray's in a while because I would get aggravated every time I went. But this time was different. My gut feeling is that they have different management. The staff was more at ease while delivering exceptional service and food. I'll definitely return soon.
Cody was awesome. Very attentive and very knowledgeable of their menu. Made sure my cousin had a very great dining experience for her birthday
The food was surprisingly very, very bland. Steak had no seasoning or flavor though it was perfectly cooked. So were the scallops. Could tell they used good ingredients but No seasonings or flavor. Like, some salt and peeper at least would be an improvement. Priced pretty high for how bland it was. We got a filet, scallops, corn, and spinach. Sides were ok. Expected better, especially at the price point. Desert was good and servers were gracious. Atmosphere would be good but weirdly there were a lot of dying flies and it was pretty loud, which restaurants can’t really control patron noise so I can’t fault them there.
The grouper is great!!! Love the dish.
Great experience, except too many flies and ants when we were seated at the outside tables. The staff and food were outstanding!
The weather was perfect and the seating was in a good spot.
Food was good not spectacular like how it used to be but it was good. I had the shrimp & grits.. it was ok but from the last time I had it (pre covid) it was not quite the same.. Instead of onions & peppers this time they had tomatoes. My spouse had filet mignon & lobster tail which was good.. Steak was very tender and seasoned well.. Dessert, it was only ok. We had the creme brulee'. It didn't have that wow factor when eaten. Service was ok. Ambiance was awesome.
Excellent. I had a great experience .. food was amazing. Great atmosphere. Only problem was waiter was not wearing a mask.
Food good as always. Service a little slow. Not bad... Just slow, considering the place was not crowded...a little empty actually.
Several dishes were disappointing. Service was awesome.
Staff was great helping us to find a cool place to sit on a hot day
Great food and service. Only regret there was not a Sunday brunch.
Rays on the river was and unforgettable experience. I love eating lunch while enjoying the view of the river. The service was top of the line. Jake is one of the best servers in the restaurant. He was attentive and also made sure I had everything I needed. From being seated at my table to walking in the front door. Everything and everyone were extremely kind. I will most certainly be back very soon. This is my new favorite restaurant in Atlanta.
Always a treat at Ray’s on the River
A window view of the river is delightful
Although we had a reservation we waited 20 minutes to be seated. We were seated after I approached the hostess twice. The hostess was not nice when I approached her and had an attitude. We were sat outside at a table that was covered in live ants. We were moved to another table but 10 minutes later we were asked to move again because we were sat down at someone else's table. The manager offered complementary drinks only for us to be charged for the drinks on our bill. This was our first visit to this restaurant. We did not have a good experience.
We went there with the kids for my wife’s birthday. Always good and reliable. You can’t beat the view. We’ll come back.
Food was okay had to send it back because it was too salty. The dress code was not per the website guideline. There were people in there not dress casual.
Server was rude and not personable. Noise level was high and overall experience was blah.
We sat at a table with a view of the river which was very nice. The waiter was very attentive and the staff were all very accommodating. After dinner we sat out by the river where they have individual seating areas. The entire evening was amazing. The complimentary valet parking was also a nice touch.
Family get together with out of town kids & grands for a delightful riverside breezy evening of yummy food & drink. Showcased Atlanta’s loveliest!
Ordered the shrimp and grits, Serving ratio shrimp to grits was not balanced, need more grits. Also ordered Crab cakes, which were underdone and caused my wife to feel ill later in the evening. Customer service was good.
7/24/21 My wife’s Birthday.
Sitting outside by the river was great
Even with freeway noise, the river scenery is calming and food is excellent
Great service, great music overall wonderful evening
Thank you 😊
Great view of the river—-service was quite good. Food was yummy, and dessert was super yummy. Place was packed, we had reservations and we were seated immediately.
Our selections were all delicious, our service was superb and the view is unsurpassed. Loved every minute.
Service - excellent!
Food and beverage - excellent!
Location and facility - excellent!
Dress code policy - not enforced so why have one?!
Overall, a terrific evening in celebrating our anniversary. Would have enjoyed a little something special from Ray but wasn’t expecting it.
We went made reservations for our anniversary. We arrived a little early so we sat in the bar area while we waited for our table. We enjoyed drinks, appetizers, and live music while we waited. The service in the bar area was fast and the oyster Rockefeller we ordered was delicious. We requested to be outside or to have a seat where you can view the river. We had a great view inside since the patio was closed because of the rain. The service was phenomenal. Everyone was friendly and attentive. I had the surf and turf and my husband had the halibut and king crab legs. Both were great and cooked to perfection. Since we noted that it was our anniversary, they brought out dessert and champagne for us to celebrate. Overall, great experience.
Very fancy! Great date night. Amazing service and food
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here and it was a very nice night. Mike and Ant were our servers and did a really great job as a team. Both Mike and Ant had good recommendations and were attentive - we never had to track them down - they were ready with a refill or to take the next rounds order.
We started with the crab cake and the goat cheese pimento fitters (the sauce was great) then i moved On to the ribeye and my wife had the shrimp and grits and we both thought they were done just right. Also we ordered a slice of key lime pie which was just the right size to share and because it was our anniversary they gave it to us for free (they let us pick our dessert rather than giving us a standard item which I thought was a nice touch).
All in all we would go back for sure. Great evening.
Excellent food. Our server was
Wonderful. Very kind and attentive. Food presentation was nice.
Only issue was two of us ordered something that we made a change to and it came to the table incorrect. Especially mine because I’m allergic to mushrooms and it came with even though I changed the side.
Overall was a good experience and we will come back.
We needed a bit of a ‘pick me up’ and a bottle of champagne and the seafood tower did the trick!!
Service was not the best. Server took a long time doing what requested and some of our food had to be taken to the kitchen for more cooking
Jess, the bartender, does it yet AGAIN - ALWAYS providing EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE. The food, of course, was EQUALLY SUPERB. Ray’s on the River is truly in a league of its own.
My party of seven everyone was extremely satisfied with the food and excellent service!!!!
Waiters were great. Food was great. Nice dinner. It's a bit expensive but it's because of the quality.
