Rey's is always a great experience. Even when things are not perfect the overall experience is above the average. In a rare event, we were served the wrong temp and the wrong steaks overall...we got another tables steaks. They quickly made us new ones and mafe sure they were correct before leaving the table. I am surprised they did not comp us a desert or take an app off the bill.

My husband and I have frequented Rey's in the past on our anniversaries. My husband passed away last year so this was my first anniversary without him. My son surprised me and asked for my OpenTable info. to setup a reservation since he knew I used your app. I was thoroughly delighted when my son told me he wanted to take me to Rey's in his father's place. Talking about having a Wow'd moment!! Like father like son :)

Food was good but the sides don’t seem to pair well with many of the meals. There is also a bit of cross contamination between shellfish and other seafood. My wife has an allergy to shellfish and was unable to eat her scallops as they had clearly been in contact with shellfish.

Delicious food, outstanding service, it was a little loud but we were there at 6:00 when there were several families with children so that was probably to be expected. Rather expensive but probably worth it. We will dine there again when we can afford it.

Rey’s never disappoints. It is so nice to go to a restaurant where you can carry on a conversation without yelling to the person sitting beside you. You’ll hear some Sinatra in the background as you dine on perfectly cooked steaks, etc. Don’t miss the freshly prepared creamed corn. Service is perfection. We missed seeing Rey on this trip, as he was taking a rare day off. He would have been proud of our young server learning to flambé for the first time. YUM.

The menu at Rey’s Restaurant is filled with creative, classic, and delicious options. The servings are very generous and the freshest ingredients are used. The dessert menu leans more toward a few perfected desserts rather than sacraficing any quality for more variety. Rey’s signature coffee paired with creme brûlée, cheesecake, or bread pudding is an excellent way to end the meal. The atmosphere at Rey’s is not stuffy but leans more toward classy-comfortable. The staff is friendly, experienced, and professional. The only drawback is the expense. But, the dining experience is definitely worth the money for any special occasion or celebration, or when only an extraordinary meal will do.

Date night was a hit! Our first time there and will definitely be back. Food was delicious. Service was excellent! Rey was at the entrance when we arrived and he made sure we got seated quickly. That first impression was everything. Made us feel that he was happy to have us there! Our first time seeing an owner mingling with customers as well. Had a great time overall!

As a foursome we went to Rey’s on a Friday night during Restaurant Week. As always the service was impeccable and the food stellar. Rey’s excelled during Restaurant Week when their selections were at a great price point and a cut above other restaurants’ selections for the same price.

The waiter was rude and non attentive. My wife ordered a salad and he ask what dressing, she asked “what kind do you have?” He said “what kind do you want?” She asked again “what kind to you have available?” He said “we “got” whatever kind you want?” She said how about a balsamic vingerette?” He said “we don’t have that.” We all ordered our steaks Medium rare 2 came out over cooked. He said that is the way you ordered them. But in fact we did not. I ordered all three at once. Medium rare. He was to busy flirting with a table of 5 women to deal with us. He allowed our drinks to become empty multiple times. He also got the table next to us side items. Items they didn’t even order and not what they did order. Quite disappointed! Not what I know Rey would expect.

We decided to try rays during restaurant week. It was easy to get a reservation at a decent time, we were seated promptly, the service was pretty good, and our orders were correct. The issues I saw with rays is the main dining area is wide open with people walking through constantly. It was like eating at a train station. Next because of the openness it was really loud and hard to hear your conversation. The food was cooked properly but was mediocre at best. Nothing terrible but nothing outstanding either. Just felt for the money I’d rather go to Sullivan’s, Ruth’s Chris or Lucky 32. Lunch might be a better option. We went for dinner.

My wife and I come to Rey's on Special Occasions..birthdays, anniversary, and Triangle Restaurant Week.
The service from making reservations to being seated and served is impeccable. The menu choices are all outstanding and cooked to perfection. Rey, the owner, is always present and makes it a point to visit all patrons. We feel it is the best restaurant in this area for a special occasion.
