My wife and I had an evening away from the kids and decided to try out Ray's. Heard lots of good things but we did not have a good experience. Maybe it was a bad night for the kitchen? Wine was not stellar and I actually returned a glass due to it tasting old (first time I had ever done that.) Think red bottle you left open for 3-4 days. Waiter seemed surprised but still replaced the glass. Waiter was overall thorough and attentive. Appetizers were bland but better than the main course. I had scallops which were good but not what I would describe as tasty. The overwhelming flavor of my wife's fish was burned food. She didn't eat any of it nor could I. Waiter seemed to think of us as picky and just boxed it up. Still charged us for it. Seemed like more effort than it was worth to argue. Needless to say we won't be coming back again.

Excellent food. Marginal service-surprising this time compared to previous experience. Delay in clearing table between course Entres brought at irregular intervals for six people Smaller gratuity was well deserved this time.

Great food, and perfect view. The seasonal selection of sablefish dishes was just fantastic. The smoked sablefish was out of this world and the one paired with pork bellies was surprising, creative, and so very tasty. Good place for the whole family for an anniversary dinner. Would love a suggestion on wines for each of the dishes.

I had great expectations for Rays. Everything was good with exception to the food. It’s not that it didn’t taste good, it just didn’t blow my mind. I dropped 200$ and left somewhat unsatisfied. The portions were to small for the prices and the flavor wasn’t enough to bring tears to my eyes like I have had before at other locations because the food was so good. I would go again but not a place I would frequent.

Fantastic food and service! Service was attentive, light-hearted. Even on a weeknight the food showed full-on attention to excellence in preparation and presentation.

Beautiful evening to see yuh boats go by. The dessert is worth saving room for, not to heavy handed on sweetness. We enjoyed the tasty steak and hunters chicken. Thanks to our server, John L.

The old Ray's Boathouse was a local institution and a great restaurant. Since it changed ownership, the food is not nearly as good and the prices are high. This is not a place I would readily return to.

Ray's serves the best seafood in Seattle. The restaurant sits right on Puget Sound. Service is consistently excellent.
