The food was excellent and so was the service. We had grouper and steak with a chopped salad and potatoes au gratin. Jared was our server and he was attentive and very nice. Rey came by to check on us.

We came a few months ago for our anniversary dinner and loved it so much we decided to come for a late valentines dinner. The food was amazing as per usual, we were sat right by the door so it was a little drafty and the party in the room to our right was doing trivia so it was pretty loud when we got there. They left fairly quickly and our service was fantastic, we never needed anything. We love Rey’s!!

The front end staff didn’t know what they were doing until Rey stepped in. It seemed very disorganized. Had a reservation that we put in weeks ago and still had to wait 20min. Just didn’t seem like the same place upfront. This typically doesn’t happen. Food was great, waitress was a bit off. She almost got me upset at first. I was thinking while my wife was ordering. Then wife finished and I was still reviewing the menu and thinking and the waitress sort of was visually impatient. I’m paying close to 75 dollars a plate here, if I want to take a moment to think I will. It was just a moment like 1 min and she seemed like she couldn’t handle the fact that I was holding her up. Very strange and unprofessional. Just wasn’t the great Reys service we typically get. But we will go back as we love Reys.

Rey's is always excellent! Steak was perfect and sides are outstanding. Can never pick between the bananas foster and the cheesecake, so we got the cheesecake to go.

Rey’s is a great place for a date night. My husband and I were sat in a cozy corner and the waitstaff were attentive. We ordered the crab cakes as an appetizer, they were perfectly seasoned and delicious. I ordered the lamb and my husband ordered the beef tournedos. Both were cooked correctly and the flavor was good. We ordered asparagus and and garlic mash potatoes. Our only complaint was the Hollandaise was cold.

My husband ordered a filet and I ordered the Beef Tournedos. On the menu it said they both equal 8 oz. but mine clearly were smaller than my husbands. While they tasted very well, the size was a concern. I was surprised when everything was a la cart, which made our bill over 125, and we didn't have any drinks or desserts. The food was good, but way too expensive for us. We will not be returning.

Rey’s was amazing, it was my fiancé and me first time dining there. The food was excellent. I got the ribeye Oscar style (crab meat and asparagus on top) and it was all cooked to perfection. Fiancé got the filet with creamed spinach which was also amazing. The drinks are definitely worth the price (and still not THAT costly) as they are STRONG. Will be going back and recommending this spot to anyone willing to listen

The food and service were fantastic. We were seated in a closed in patio area, however, which was not preferred and it got quite loud.

It was my first time to Rey’s and it was Valentine’s Day. We were sat right away, offered a creative drink menu and had waitstaff there immediately. I never had to ask for anything. The food was amazing. Rey himself came out to make our banana foster dessert. It was a great night out.

Rey’s atmosphere was amazing
Jeremy, our server, was awesome!
I had the Pauper for a drink, it was really good, for the price. They should charge more! Lol
The hearts salad was not so great but the steak, lobster and potatoes were well seasoned and cooked just the way ordered it.

Given the difficulties of this pandemic, Rey and his staff continue to strive for an elegant dining experience. I truly appreciate the consistency that my wife and I have experienced over the years in both food and service. It's been a tough time for restaurant's all over the Triangle, yet this restaurant continues to shine!

This is the first time dining here, and my only regret is that we haven’t eaten there sooner. The waitstaff is professional and the service was excellent. My husband had the bone in ribeye special cooked perfectly and my stuffed flounder was Devine!

Service and food was fantastic. However, we were seated in the enclosed patio area and the ambience and acoustics were not great. It was very loud (no curtains or carpet to absorb noise) and the music was very loud too. It was hard for us to have a conversation at the table. Next time I will ensure my reservation is for the main dining room.

Had a great night at Rey's. My wife's steak temperature wasn't right and the waiter whisked it away and provided my wife with a free glass of wine and some additional food to compensate. Got a delicious dessert for free for my birthday :)
