Great service , but food was mediocre (chops dry, no taste, fish over cooked)... expensive ... not a good value, even for a special occasion.

I would recommend Rey's, however I would suggest asking questions about best preparation for menu items. My spouse and I ordered Bourbon Glazed Pork Chop's with apple raisin chutney. The portion size was well worth the price. You received 2 chops with clean bone prep. We asked for well done, I have to be careful about eating undercooked food. Unfortunately, the meat was tough and dry. The management did ask about our food and we relayed our concerns. At that point, the manager provided complimentary desserts for the table. Other items ordered were very good. I think seafood and possibly steaks are the better choices for this restaurant. I will be trying other upscale restaurants before returning, but would not discourage anyone from trying this one with proper menu item guidance. Note: this was not a server issue. This should have been a recommendation from the cook that the meat would become dry if cooked well done.

My wife and I have been dining at Rey's for years! We enjoy the restaurant as the staff is very friendly, and the food is always great. Their wine selection is very good, and they have a good variety of top shelf liquors.

Get on their mailing list if you enjoy the restaurant. You are not bombarded with mail, and they send out emails on special deals on occasion.

I brought my son & his girl for his birthday. My son is a chef, very intent on detail & taste. I knew he would be pleased & he savored every bite. Of great importance is the noise level. Yours is one of a very few restaurants (despite the quality of food) that conversation is easy.

We went here since it was highly rated and close to our hotel. The bar is proficient and the crab cakes appetizers were also good. My NY Strip however was tougher than at comparable fine dining establishments. Moreover I ordered it medium rare but it was medium at one end and almost rare at the other. This signifies an overcrowded grill. Finally the waitress wrote down one part of my fiancees entree incorrectly but the restaurant corrected this blunder. We split a dessert creme brûlée that was very nicely prepared.

Service was outstanding, waitstaff obviously well trained. Food was good, however, felt al le carte made it more expensive than it should have been. We ate early so restaurant not crowded thus noise level was fine. Large, noisy group came in as we were leaving. Several rooms for group gatherings so may minimize the overall noise. Nice small bar/lounge area.

I am assuming that the debonair gentleman in the sport coat was Rey. How many restaurants does the owner or manager introduce himself while you are waiting for your table? How many restaurants does the owner or manager come by twice while you are eating and check to make sure you are happy and having a good time? Never happens. Simply above and beyond the call.

Two waiters were assigned to our table (Jasmine and David). We were only a party of four. Service was simply outstanding. REY's does it better than anywhere else I have been.

We enjoy Rey's, go 3 or 4 times a year. My husband had the bone in ribeye, what he normally orders and it has always been good. I tried the Lobster/New York Strip combination, not what I normally order and it was not good. This is my mistake because I have always felt Rey's overcooks their lobster and this time was no exception. The waiter reacted instantly when he saw that I was not eating and brought out some new lobster but it was cooked the same. The second time the waiter did not react, even though he walked by several times. Eventually my husband called him over and indicated I couldn't eat the dinner. Rey was in house and took the strip/lobster off the bill, appropriately. Of course we will go back, just want order the lobster.
