    The Filet is always amazing, cooked to just the right heat. I asked for medium rare plus, and that is what I got! Everything was wonderful! Thanks Rey, for another delightful night of dining, from 3 very satisfied and happy diners! Always leave room for the table side Banana’s Foster!

    The food was very good. However, the service was lacking. We waited half an hour to be seated, even with a reservation. And then after being seated it took an hour and a half to order our entrees (we had to ask to order) we had already finished our appetizers before ordering the entrees. Also, we were told three times they would bring out the bread and that also took about an hour and is asking for it. We felt ignored by our server all night. We left our 8pm dinner at nearly 11 pm due to lack of attentive service.

    We decided to do Rey’s for date night. Usually I enjoy the food, but tonight I tried something different. I got chicken piccata and it was salty I had to send it back. So I opted for chicken Marsala and it just wasn’t good to me. Both dishes came out with four very small cutlets of chicken breast and not really seared properly and swimming in the sauces. So it wasn’t my cup of tea. My date had the pork chops and they were divine! The apples and raisins and the glaze was absolutely delicious and they were tender! He was given 2 nice size pork chops for the money. Also they were plated beautifully! The sides were good but they were just warm in temperature not hot. The bread pudding was delicious as well! Our server was on friendly and we did enjoy him. He saw I wasn’t thrilled with my meal and gave me a free take home dessert, which was unexpected but nice. I got the cheesecake and it was very good the next day! Rey was in the building and came around and spoke to everyone and was so happy and welcoming! I did not speak on my experience as I didn’t want to bring attention or a dampening to the evening because although I had the entrée issues, I really did enjoy myself. The drinks were also very good! Parking is easy as they have their own parking lot. Price for the food is appropriate as everything is a la carte it is shareable sizes. Dress is casual to formal depending on your event. I would go back again because this was not my first time to Rey’s and normally the food and service is impeccable! I would recommend this business.

    Even though they were extremely busy they never missed a beat in service. The staff was super attentive, courteous and helpful and the food was fresh and flavorful. My husband’s bone-in ribeye special was perfectly seasoned and cooked exactly how he likes them. My broiled flounder was so delicious! I can’t wait to eat it again! Our seared tuna appetizer was very fresh - not fishy at all. I have to say, when my dish was first brought out the crab stuffing was cold. The server took it back and immediately got me another one. He then brought us two desserts on the house because of that! I never thought twice about it - but what a great gesture! We will definitely keep coming back. Great food and even better service.

    The bone-in ribeye was delicious. Everything else was just a little too "different" for my taste. The romaine salad had brown edges, with the hearts of palm and artichoke a bit too tart for the already-tart cranberry dressing. The french onion soup was thick like porridge because I waited too long to eat it. (The soup and salad arrived at the same time, and I ate the salad first). The cheese topping became hard and had to be cut to eat. I like my cheese to stretch out in cumbersome threads. The cream of corn was very thick -- more floury filling than corn, and very sweet. And the lobster mac and cheese was good -- a bit bland and less creamy than I would have liked. The pork chops were medium cooked but very tough and overall somewhat bland despite the chutney topping. The cherries jubilee was good, but I wished the cherries were fresh instead of frozen. And a zest of orange and cloves would have enhanced the taste. The smoky manhattan was my drink of choice -- excellent. But a singular ice cube instead of soda-pop style ice would have allowed me to enjoy the drink longer. Instead, I rushed to finish it before it became too watered down. The kitchen seems to use salt sparingly -- which is good! But for $250, I expected a little more flavor overall.

    This was my third anniversary. We have went to Reys every year. Never have a complaint. They make it special and give us a little handwritten card that goes into our anniversary box. They wrote happy birthday on the inside one this year. We couldn’t stop talking about it. It was an honest mistake but made us laugh.

    One of the entrees was pork chops and they were excellent. The 16 oz ribeye was WAY over seasoned and extremely tough. I did not complain to the waitress because she did a great job and I didn't want to make her night any more stressful than it probably was. I was disappointed in the beef but the pork was good.

    From the time we pulled up to valet, to being greeted and seated by the friendly hostess, our experience was amazing! Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and his suggestions were impressive. We had the trio appetizers which included fried oysters, scallops and crab cakes. For entrees, my fiancé had the bone-in ribeye special topped with lump crab meat over hollandaise sauce and asparagus. I had the 8pm filet mignon and we shared the garlic mashed potatoes. Everything was incredible! Lastly, my fiancé got to choose a complimentary dessert for his birthday. The cheesecake was topped with fresh berries and a delicious strawberry sauce to top it off. Overall, it was a wonderful experience! Highly recommended!

    Both steaks came out undercooked. My Prime Ribeye was very chewy but it did have flavor. Front staff on check in were good, but the waiter we had would get a rating of F. Waiter had no class whatsoever, why he was working at Rey’s is beyond me! Will not be going back! Did not see any management there that night. Waiter did things like just throwing the desert spoons down on the table instead of placing them, then picked my desert plate up before I was even finished. Just Unbelievable experience!

    We go there every year for our Anniversary, and they always recognize our special day. The wait staff, food and dessert are all better than anywhere else. Rey's took over for the Red Barn years ago as the best place to go for a meal and steak.
