This was a great dinner and a wonderful experience for my husband and I.
Great restaurant for celebrating birthdays and special occasions very good food nice ambience
This is a fantastic restaurant for special occasions! The menu selection was amazing, we had a hard time deciding what we wanted. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly, excellent sear on the outsides, buttery smooth on the inside. The flounder was also delicious and it paired well with the citrus couscous and veggies. This was our first time here and we were surprised by the anniversary treat they gave us at the end of the meal. Service was also excellent, our waitor was wonderful and very helpful when it came to deciding what to order. We will definitely be recommending this restaurant to all of our friends and will be returning ourselves.
Everything about our visit was fabulous from the minute we walked in after a long COVID required break from eating out!
We brought friends who had never dined there before and we will all be coming back!
Outstanding food and service all in a COVID-19-social distancing friendly atmosphere.
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Ryan’s. Kenny provided excellent service and gave us some great recommendations. Tables were spaced out well and we felt safety precautions were very good. The food was excellent and we will definitely be back next time we are in Winston Salem!
The service and food was excellent. Pamela defined in detail several descriptions of how food was prepared.
The staff was so helpful in creating a fun and wonderful dinner
The server was a lady who was clearly not happy to be working. She wasn’t horrible but definitely not friendly and just going through the motions.
Great food and lovely atmosphere. We had the Prime Ribeye and Filet. Top notch cuts of meat cooked to perfection.
Food and service was great. Table behind ours was very loud, another table near us asked to be moved.
Great evening, excellent food, outstanding service by Matt. Made our 63 anniversary dinner very enjoyable.
Ryan’s never disappoints. We were seated as soon as we arrived, the server was friendly and attentive. Our food was delicious.
This was a nice splurge/treat for myself and my husband for our anniversary. Everything was fantastic.
Absolutely phenomenal food and atmosphere. Cant recommend this place enough for an upscale dining experience.
Absolutely Delicious and the service was fantastic!
My server Bryan was phenomenal very informative and knowledgeable on the menu ! Food was phenomenal, steak was cooked perfect and a great drink list was provided as well !
My husband and I went for our wedding anniversary.... Our waiter was very pleasant. The food was ok.... The crab cake was extremely delicious , I highly recommend. We were not impressed with the actual meal. My lamb was ok and my husband hated his ribeye... We are not sure if we want to go back.
Celebrated two birthdays and the meal was excellent. We have only dined out a few times in the last year but Ryan’s is our place to visit. Great food great service!
We were sitting close to the waiters computer and the bar service.. it was loud and no ambiance... I’m sure we would have enjoy more if we were sitting at a different place, but probably the worst table sitting we have unfortunately. Next time I will specify a table with the forest view.
The meal was good. I like my steaks well done and it was sort of burned. But other than that, again, it was what was expected.
The food and ambience was perfect. Our grown kids came home to visit and we took them to Ryan's for the experience that you offer. As always, Ryan's did not disappoint. Thank you.
Excellent as always. Ryan's has always and continues to be the most fine dinning in W-S.
As we have experienced every time prior, everything was perfect. Attentive and knowledgeable waiter, outstanding flavor and serving size just right. We still have not found another restaurant in Winston-Salem that comes close to Ryan’s. In our opinion, there is no comparison.
Went for husbands birthday and everything was perfect!
Ryan’s was great as usual.
Fabulous as always!!
Absolutely superb experience in every way.
Everything was excellent! The service, the drinks, the Oysters Rockefeller (are to die for), and superb filet. Awesome place for an outstanding meal. Ryan’s never disappoints!
As always the experience at Ryan’s is unmatched. Love this place.
Wonderful restaurant! If you have the excuse to go, go.
I've been to Ryan's three times with work events and once with a private event. Although it is VERY pricey, you will not find a better cooked steak anywhere. The service is always impeccable and the food never disappoints regardless of what you pick on the menu. It is not a choice most people can make for any given night, but, for special occasions, it is worth the overall experience. A+++
Excellent as always
Celebrated a birthday and had an amazing time!
Amazing experience as always! The food was fantastic as was the service! Can’t wait to return!
I had not been to Ryan's for almost 20 years and its still as amazing as its always been. Great food and even better service.
