Was not thrilled with the service; however, our server did have right many tables. Would have liked somewhere to sit while waiting for my ride to drive up - I have osteoarthritis. Everything else was wonderful. Greetings from owner at the table and as we exited was a nice touch.

Very good meal, stuffer flounder, grouper, tuna. All 3 there were 4 of us, 2 had the flounder, were excellent. For me, a touch on the too spicy side, but finished the plate clean. Dessert always excellent.Our waiter, David R(?) was excellent and most personable. Have been before and will return. Thanks

Rey's is one of the few family owned restaurants in the Triangle area that is a genuine elegant experience. The service is great and the food is reasonably priced. The preparation of the Bananas Foster dessert is spectacular !!

This was our first time to Rey's. Scott was our waiter and the service was excellent - not only by Scott but by the table stewards as well. Our food came out promptly but not rushed. The food quality was excellent although the portion sizes were somewhat smaller than expected (for instance, the side of asparagus was only 7 spears). The prices were not out of line with fine dining but considering the portion sizes we could not give Rey's 5 stars for value. We would definitely go back to Rey's but only for a special occasion.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful anniversary dinner at Rey’s. Our server a Jim was attentive. The food was delicious!!! My husband enjoyed the evening special, a 22oz ribeye which was a perfect medium rare. I enjoyed the fried oyster app as my entree. We shared sides of green beans with almonds and sautéed mushrooms. Couldn’t have asked for a better evening!!!!

Service was poor and disorganized. The staff did not seem to know what they were doing and had a lengthy discussion in front of us just to seat us. We were two people and they wanted us to sit at a corner table for six people. We told them no but they tried to talk us into it. We were moved to an appropriate table. Then the service took forever.

My wife and I went to Rey's for the first time last week. We started with Calamari. The dish is more like succotash with 25 or so small calamari rings. Flavor was good, but we'd have liked to know that it was more vegetable than calamari. For the main course, I had the special of the night, New Orleans Surf & Turf (Filet & Lobster Tail). She had an 8 oz Filet. For our sides we selected Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Steamed Broccoli. The sides were really bland with barely cooked broccoli and runny mashed potatoes. The sides had no flavor at all. The steaks were OK, though i got my wife's Rare steak and she got my Medium Rare steak. Once we swapped, it was at least decent meat. The cut of meat was good and saved the taste, well that and a bit of butter in the cooking process. The Lobster tail was dry and flavorless. The waiter was nice, but he tried to rush us along and rarely even cleaned up when he took plates. (Family style sides so a bit messier as you do all the work) The bill wasn't all that expensive at around $180, but when we left both of us were very disappointed. Folks rave about this place, though unfortunately it must just be locals who pull up in their 4x4 pick-ups in shorts who rate the place...as anyone who's eaten anywhere from Outback to Flemings to Applebees...has had a lot better steak. I really hope folks who are looking for a nice dinner read the full review here, as they can certainly spend their money for a better experience. Hate so much to make these comments about a local establishment, but value and flavor are important when spending nearly $200 on a meal. The ambiance is just 'weird' as well. (no privacy and unusual mix of clientele)

I come here all the time with my family — we love it! But I have to give it 4 stars because of my last experience. My boyfriend and I ordered a $109 bottle of chataneuf-du-pape and the bottle service was appalling... Our waiter was sweet, but technically speaking, I wanted to throw myself into the sun during his wine presentation. Everything he did was incorrect. If I’m going to drop that much money on a bottle of wine, my server needs to open it correctly. But great food, great wine list, great vibes, etc. I’ll keep coming back forever.

This is our absolute favorite restaurant for a special occasion or night out. We were celebrating our son's 19th birthday, and they gave us the private room. Our waiter was prompt and friendly, and he went out of his way to make our night great with extra servings & desserts and personal service. It's always great to see Rey himself greet you or check on how things are going. Love supporting a local restaurant that is excellent!
