Lovely experience, good service. Will definitely come again.
Ray's is always a fun place to take out-of-town visitors, and we appreciate the good noise level. Many restaurants are to noisy, you can't hear each other.
I found it lacking in comparison to previous visits. Perhaps an off night in the kitchen? $20 for 6 oysters and they all had pieces of shell and were not fresh - don't ask, I know. Caesar salad was about as basic and undressed as I've ever had. No anchovy! NE clam chowder was good, not great. Beer was over priced. I was upstairs with 2 others. I like that space and will go back again. My guess is, off night. I can only hope...
Ray’s Cafe has been a favorite of my family’s for many years. The restaurant has a magnificent view of Puget Sound and the entrance to the Ballard Lochs. Service is always good and food is fresh and delicious. My favorite spot to have some fish and chips on a weekend. Other places may be lower cost but do not match the quality, service, and view.
Ray's is always a favorite. Good food, nice people and, the amazing view. Perfect place for a Sunday afternoon lunch
Really fabulous food but average service. Never did he pour any of our wine that was on ice. Unusual service this night.
Too pricey. I do remember when Ray's offered a birthday lunch on your birthday and later on at least a dessert .
Cafe is now as expensive as the restaurant.
We have been coming to Ray's for over 20 years and it seems just too expensive now.
Dined for Christmas dinner. Perfect food Good service as always
Neglected to tell us one of the entrees was unavailable and without letting us know substituted a different salmon entree. We told server was not what was ordered. Apparently mgr had not told server. It was not handled professionally. Ended up turned sub dinner and did not reorder. We were comped with free dessert but still was handled poorly.
We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, excellent meals (we had salmon and blackfish, both outstanding), and proficient, unobtrusive service. The view on our holiday visit was serene and beautiful.
