My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed celebrating his birthday at Rey’s. The food was phenomenal, service was stellar and the atmosphere was inviting and warm. You even saw Rey walking around interacting with the guests. We mutually decided this will be our special occasion restaurant of choice from now on. We truly felt every penny spent at Rey’s was well worth it.

We did not feel as safe as on our last visit. The dining room appeared full and I was within six feet of the person at the table behind me. The waiter was much slower to take our order than on previous visits (perhaps because it was so busy).

The food was below the normal quality we receive at Reys. We had two orders of Grouper that were only fair. The salad was swimming in dressing.

We love this restaurant but this was an 'off night' for us. Would not recommend a weekend visit during Covid if it stays this busy.

The service and food were both fantastic! My steak was the best I’ve ever had. The turtle soup was wonderful. My husband had their special which was surf and turf. He said his filet was delicious and his lobster was delicious also. We had bananas foster for dessert, which was an amazing end to our meal. We will definitely be going back at least once or twice a month. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! They even gave us a card for our anniversary and a complimentary dessert.

It was very good. Waitstaff was very professional and courteous. Only things I was disappointed about was that for a New Orleans flare restaurant, they didn’t have oysters Rockefeller. Also, the interior... I hate to be so particular, but it almost seems that there wasn’t enough New Orleans flare elegancy to the interior. I’m not sure if it had anything to do with Covid (I have never been to this restaurant before). But to whomever designed the place, I’m not sure they have ever been to New Orleans. But the quality of the food was great. The timing, the wine, waitstaff. Terrific!!!

Second experience at Rey’s. Not great, nor bad. After living in New Orleans for many years, I am biased on what I expect food described to be French Quarter food. I don’t plan to return. Simply, if I want French Quarter food, there are a couple other places in the triangle that offer better options (and much lower prices). Pro: service is excellent! Very professional, kind and never need to wait for service (yet not at your table too often).

Dinner is always fabulous at Rey's. The lobster bisque is incredible! We had different appetizers and they were all wonderful as well as the entrees. Of course, you can not end a meal at Rey's without their wonderful Bananas Foster. They did a great job of having the tables spaced apart. Another wonderful meal at Rey's. Wonderful service, wonderful food!

It was our anniversary to celebrate 21 years of blissful marriage and we wanted something super special for our dinner plans; Rey's was above and beyond. Our first time here and all I can say is outstanding!!!! Our waiter Michael was amazing but so were the hostesses when we arrived. The only thing I would ask to alter is to include the prices for the specials. My husband got one of the specials and we were a little shocked when we got he bill. It was outstanding no doubt in preparedness, flavor and presentation and we would of still ordered it but it would of been nice to be prepared ahead of getting the bill. Would recommend this restaurant a dozen times over and we are definitely revisiting as much as possible. Thank you Rey's for being such a classy restaurant.

You can go to Rey’s for any occasion, even big groups or meetings. I’ve never had a bit of food that wasn’t skillfully prepared or absolutely delicious. Rey himself is a kind man and true gentleman with a hands on approach on making you feel truly welcome and a friend from day one. The service is impeccable and I feel like you are treated like family.
Really excited about the remodel going on. Looks great! If I can eat one restaurant every day, it would be here, no doubt.
