Beautiful location. Great food! Service outside was slow as servers adjusting to new regulations and going up and down stairs. Unfortunately it took us 1/2 hour to get a menu.

Such a great restaurant. Good service and better food. You obviously pay for it ($80/person sneaks up on you quick), but it is one of the better restaurants in the city.

We had an awesome time at Ray's with happy hour first at the bar area then celebrated a birthday dinner outside by the river. They did a great job with keeping the tables distanced and the staff were wearing masks and sanitizing along the way. Our servers were awesome, John and Ally. The food was delicious as usual, calamari and blue cheese chips for appetizers. The drinks from the bar were not watered down at all! :) The parmesan scallops and filet were delicious as well as the mashed potatoes and mac and cheese sides. Chocolate cake and butter cake desserts were to die for. Been coming to Ray's on the River for almost 30 years and i'm glad that they've kept up their standards.

Rays on the River is an excellent place to socialize or have a nice relaxed meal. I sat outside which was very nice. There's lots of seating most with umbrellas. There's additional seating and spaces to look enjoy the beautiful view of the river. You can also enjoy your company and the view from your outside table. The staff was very attentive, knowledgeable of food and drinks. Great social distancing throughout as well as cleaning and sanitizing. The food and drinks were great! It was a great experience!

The setting was excellent, the food tasted great, and the service was friendly. The per table brunch setup was a great alternative to the typical brunch buffet (we went during the phased reopening.) The price was on the higher side, but definitely not unreasonable.

We had a great time with exceptional service. 100% coming back. The food was delicious (salmon BLT so good) and the bottomless mimosas were awesome!! Great view of the river and overall very happy with our time spent there.

The new family style was a hit. The food was plentiful, warm and tasty. My only suggestions would be to offer a more vegetable friendly choice with the three sides (mashed potatoes and Mac and cheese were both excellent but i like more veggies), and a few more brunch type offerings would be great.
Our servers were nice, personable and anticipated our needs well.

We had a wonderful first dinner out post-quarantine to celebrate our anniversary! The staff was attentive and ensured that we were
comfortable and well cared for. All of the tables outdoors and on the window inside were full so they brought flowers to our table since we could not enjoy the view of the river. The food was delicious and the complementary celebratory dessert capped a beautiful evening.

We went to celebrate my boyfriends birthday . We made a reservation for an outdoor table and sat by the river. It was a beautiful evening weather wise. A two piece combo was playing lovely music. Ray’s exceeded cdc guidelines for keeping us safe. Food was awesome, as always. The service was impeccable. This restaurant has always been my favorite special occasion restaurant and will remain so. I will say our special occasions are not only limited to birthdays. Sometimes a Saturday evening turns into a special occasion because we decided to go there.

Food and ambiance were excellent. Service was fair, had to flag down often, felt ignored. French Fries were not delivered with our meal and didn't arrive until 20 minutes later.
