Went for my birthday. All the staff and owners kept coming to the table and saying Happy Birthday. The waitress was awesome. The Steak was amazing. Only thing I was not a fan of was the augratin potatoes. I will be going back to Reys for more birthdays and events. It’s just a amazing place. Thank you for making my birthday awesome.

Rey's holds a place in our hearts for my wife and me. It is where I proposed, and where she said yes. We begin every anniversary celebration at Rey's and at the same table.

The food is excellent, the staff attentive and Rey always comes by the table to personally ensure everything is exactly as we want it.

The only bump in our dinner yesterday evening was our server said they didn't offer a red wine sangria...we've been going there for 6 years, and my wife always orders one. He said he could have the bartender make one, but it came out way too strong and I asked them add a bit more simple syrup to sweeten it up...it was a little better, but still strong. If the Sangria has been taken off the menu, I appreciate if that decision were reconsidered. It is my wife's go to drink.

That little issue not withstanding, I whole heartedly recommend Rey's to anyone looking for excellent French Quarter N'awlin's fine dinning. This place remains our favorite restaurant for the special celebrations in our life!

Great food and service. It was my first time there and it was fantastic. Normal for a good steak I go to Sullivan's on Glenwood. I actually enjoyed my meal more at Rey's.

Much has changed at Reys but fortunately the food is still delicious and consistent. I use to say that Rey's had old world charm and elegance. Today's environment is more energetic and casual. With all of the newer younger wait staff, I always ask for one of the seasoned staff members - David and Jim are both awesome.

Food was solid. Noise and ambience, not so much. We went during Restaurant Week, which made the food a better value. If it hadn't been Restaurant Week, then not so much.

We chose Rey’s because we thought it was a higher end establishment. The food was okay, but not elevated like a Ruth’s Chris or Capital Grille. Our server was distracted, we had to flag someone down to pour water and a refill of wine. Our food arrived and our server was no where to be found, so it sat on a serving tray for 5 minutes. My daughter had wanted to order another appetizer and when we found our server to order, we were informed the kitchen had closed. This was before 10pm. I’m not sure if the staff all wanted to go home or what, but there were a lot of them and they were all walking around. We dine out a few times per week and prefer a good steakhouse 1-2x a month. This is not one of them. The ambiance is lovely and the hostess was very kind.

Really enjoy Rey’s, my favorite dining experience in the Cary NC area.
Only negative is that during the meal you become more aware of the very squeaky swinging door to the kitchen/ service area. Spring hinges probably need replacing.

Both food and service was excellent. Our waiter was very helpful with recommendations and very attentive without being a nuisance. The food was outstanding and spaced out accordingly. It all arrived at the correct temperatures. Definitely recommend the Bananas Foster for desert. If you want something unique and delicious, try the turtle soup.
