Upscale. Extensive wine list. Nice atmosphere. Food was good, but not very good or extraordinary. My wife's steak was undercooked and it was heated up, not replaced. Turtle soup was Ok but not luxurious. Seems hard to get out of here with 2 people for under $150. Not sure the food and experience matched up to that kind of money value. Try it once. We were glad we tried it, but will try another restaurant next time.

My filet had to be returned twice but ended up too well done. The waiter comped our desert though.
Only point, not a criticism, our waiter was way too subservient. He meant well and we appreciated his attentiveness but he didn’t have to grovel so much.

First time at Rey’s and I was very much looking forward to it. The entrees were a big disappointment. The steak was a really bad cut for a NY strip. Overall it was a real let down and we will not be returning.

Rey's is an EXCELLENT choice for dinning whether it is for a Special occasion or just want a quiet dinner for two. They offer separate rooms for larger parties or for special events. Great selection of wines and cocktails to choose from. Wait staff very friendly and accommodating, service is as fast or as relaxed as you want it. Food is ALWAYS expertly cook and prepared and arrives at table hot and fresh.

We had a very enjoyable evening at Rey's. The food was very good. Each course, Including drinks took a bit too long to come out, but there were several large groups dining there, which I found unusual for January. If I didn't have to dust off the wood ledges next to our table, I maybe would have rated it higher, lol. (It really would take very little time for housekeeping to do this Rey!) My 16oz strip steak was delicious; thick & well marbled. It was best strip steak I have had in our area lately & at $51, very reasonable. The interior is due for a bit of a 're-fresh'.

We were celebrating a Birthday and It was our first time at Reys. Starting at the door ,We were greeted by two hosts and promptly seated (5pm resv) Our Server Matt was super polite and was very knowledgeable of the menu . I am a foodie but still like to know all about the menu . The wine list had lots of good choices. I decided on Panfried Grouper ,crabmeat and cream sauce add scallops..asparagus.. My Man ordered a 10 MR Filet Mignon ,House salad , cheesy potatoes. Both of our meals were perfectly cooked and he loved his salad . I choose the Banana Fosters instead of a salad and Michael made it table side ( he was delightful and recommended me to record in slow motion) awesome video!!! It was delicious and I ate every bite ,while my Man had a a LIT for his Birthday Dessert. I also ran into a Friend Christina who serves here and she was a extra bonus to our dinner. My Man gave it 5 stars and that’s a compliment. We will definitely return , Kudos to Staff and Manager I spoke with.

I wasn’t going to say anything but since you keep asking. Service was excellent. My steak I ordered medium was mostly rare. Chewy as well. The 28 dollar dessert was overpriced and by far the worst banana foster I’ve ever had

Grouper Lafayette was not very fresh....quite disappointing and did not eat much of it. Filet mignon was excellent. We complained about grouper but were still charged for it which was surprising since Rey said they would not charge us. Overall, we will return as it is a very nice restaurant and would recommend it.

Reservation on Open Table was easy. Famous restaurant was easy to find, we were warmly greeted by staff and management. The ambiance was elegant, the decor was stylish and subdued. Paul, our server, was prompt, friendly, and knowledgeable. We had barely taken our seat when our drinks and appetizers were ready! Our entrees were excellent. We received a complimentary dessert for our anniversary. A marvelous fine dining experience!

That was my Christmas present to my family. We enjoyed ourselves so much. Our server was exceptional, however I can’t remember his name. This could become a family tradition.
