Thanksgiving dinner at 5:30pm. One of the best Thanksgiving meals we have had. Turkey was superb as was the pecan pie. Nice selection of starters and sides too.

This was our first visit based on a personal recommendation by a trusted friend. Rey’s met and exceeded our expectations, it was a delightful experience, and our server Kelly T was outstanding, friendly, courteous and highly accommodating, I would recommend requesting her…she is charming.

This restaurant is inviting and the quality and service, a credit to the management by their need to satisfy their patrons. The food is excellent and service is timely, every need anticipated and met, from the server, to the busboy to the Manager, they all outperformed and offered an incredible experience.

We encountered a minor glitch, Kelly and her Manager both handled it discreetly. We plan to return very soon.

Our server was excellent, friendly and knowledgeable. The owner stopped by to greet us. It was our anniversary. We were greeted with a nice note and at the end of the meal, they gave us a free dessert. The atmosphere was quiet and attentive. We were not rushed. It was simply a very enjoyable evening.

Food was excellent. My husband’s steak and sides came out and the waitress apologized that my chicken Caesar salad wasn’t ready yet. She said the reason was that the chicken rang up as a $22 up charge and the manager was getting that fixed for us since that was ridiculous. It took a while for my salad to come out and the explanation didn’t make a lot of sense. When we received the bill, the chicken was still a $22 up charge. It was just thin strips of grilled chicken and nothing special. If she hadn’t specifically said something about this to us, it wouldn’t have been a big deal. But $32 for a salad seems a little silly.

Our Anniversary dinner at Reys was a disaster and I don’t think we will be returning to Reys anytime soon. We had a 9:00 pm reservation…..got seated at a table in the bar area…a party of 3 was seated a little while after we were seated. They took their order first…..our order 2nd…their dinner arrived first…they ate and as they were finishing their meal…ours arrived. My steak ordered Medium Well came pretty much raw on the inside….the waiter realized it was cooked incorrect and sent it back….2nd steak came barley cooked as well….I asked to have it taken off my bill and just wanted to eat my sides and salad and be done….Manager came over and talked me into another steak and he would make sure it was right…..3rd steak was still undercooked in the middle but cooked enough that I could eat the outside only….Manager came back and said he would “ Take care of us” on the bill for our trouble. We had ordered (2) Desserts of Bread Pudding….we asked for it to go as we were pretty much done with being there…..the Manager brought the dessert in a bag and we the paid the bill…..the FULL amount of our meal was charged to us….except for our desserts…we paid the bill and got home to eat our dessert only to find out that he only gave us 1 and not the 2 that we had ordered. The whole experience was horrible and we will not be returning anytime soon. I get that food can be cooked incorrect but 3 times in a row in a restaurant that charged us $157.00 for our meal is not acceptable.

Selectd Rey's for our 50th anniversary dinner. The filet and sides were very good. Our NY cheesecake was very good except for the frosting which made the desert a little sweet. Wait staff were great. The staff however were in constant motion setting up and tearing down tables, placing dishes in bins near our table.. We felt for a fine dining restaurant the noise level was extreme. The restaurant lacked soft music to completely enjoy the experience.

It was god good pricey. Had turtle soup actually very good. Service was great! Had a small wait time even with reservation. There was a party going on/ party had on headphones so no one in restaurant could hear the noise. But it was still kinda a distraction to other guest. I would recommend this for a special occasion.

My husband chose Rey's for my birthday dinner and I was very happy with his choice. I had the chicken marsala with mushrooms and the bread pudding for desert. The service and food were outstanding. We will come back to Rey's in the future.

Food was delicious. Our waiter started off great, but disappeared after we ordered. Wine came out well after the course it was supposed to pair with, and other people checked on us once or twice but not our actual waiter. The place was moderately busy, but even by today's standards, we were left waiting longer than usual. Still, would definitely go back for the food.

DAVID!!!!!! The best ever!! The food was wonderful. The flounder and chicken were so delicious and satisfying. BTW, cocktails were to die for. The pineapple Upside down Cake was amazing. But the best was the last. Table side bananas foster was beautiful. Thank you for such a wonderful evening. Will ask to be seated at David's table again and again.
