Decent food, great service, but the noise level was too loud. Obnoxious table next to us spoiled the experience.

Excellent place to celebrate an anniversary. Only minus is that the waiter didn't ask whether it was a special occasion as previous waiters always have. He was probably new. That aside, he was great, as was the entire experience.

We went back to Rey’s as last visit was positive, this visit we were disappointed with the food. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t great either so for the price I paid I will go back to Ruth Chris’ for my next good steak. The steaks were not as tender or flavorful as I’d recalled or expected.

Our server was kind and helpful and even gave me a free birthday dessert which was a nice touch.

Our anniversary is Sunday April 7 and your restaurant isn’t open that day. So we reserved a table for two for April 5th for our Anniversary dinner. It was really nice! Food was amazing and the server was very attentive. From the host and hostess to the waiter I am very glad that we chose Rey’s!

I can’t think of any restaurant where the owner walks around the dining room, greets every customer and ensures your meal is perfect. For this reason, I will definitely be back!

We've eaten here often. In fact back a second time in a week. We sat in the lounge and it was a little loud for a Tuesday but no big deal. The level of service was a big deal. Our waiter was hard to find, didn't chill the wine and didn't bring an ice bucket until several requests. We were given a free dessert to compensate. Unfortunately it was my husband's birthday and we left disappointed.

The food and service were fantastic. The only thing I wasn’t thrilled with was the ahi tuna. Not because it wasn’t delicious, we just felt that the portion was way too small (5 tiny pieces) for the price. It won’t keep us from going back, we would just get something else instead. The steaks were cooked to perfection

I've been going to Rey's almost 2 years now and everytime I go, the food is always amazing. The staff is always knowledgeable about the food and very friendly. I've met Rey a few times and he's a very nice guy. I recommend this place to everyone that asks about good food, nice environment, and friendly staff. I've read reviews where some people said it was pricey. I look at it like this, I've traveled the world and I have yet found a steak that tastes as good as Rey's! I couldn't wait to get back home and go to Rey's. The quality of his food is out of this world to the point where you eat the leftovers the next day and the flavor, the juiciness is still there. So yes I don't mind paying for quality. Go to Rey's!

We love Rey’s! Great place to celebrate special occasions and awesome place to just hang out at the bar. The food is wonderful and the prices are reasonable for the quality and quantity of food you get. Warning...be sure to save room for dessert. The banana foster is prepared tableside and is fabulous!

I would recommend Rey's, however I would suggest asking questions about best preparation for menu items. My spouse and I ordered Bourbon Glazed Pork Chop's with apple raisin chutney. The portion size was well worth the price. You received 2 chops with clean bone prep. We asked for well done, I have to be careful about eating undercooked food. Unfortunately, the meat was tough and dry. The management did ask about our food and we relayed our concerns. At that point, the manager provided complimentary desserts for the table. Other items ordered were very good. I think seafood and possibly steaks are the better choices for this restaurant. I will be trying other upscale restaurants before returning, but would not discourage anyone from trying this one with proper menu item guidance. Note: this was not a server issue. This should have been a recommendation from the cook that the meat would become dry if cooked well done.

My wife and I have been dining at Rey's for years! We enjoy the restaurant as the staff is very friendly, and the food is always great. Their wine selection is very good, and they have a good variety of top shelf liquors.

Get on their mailing list if you enjoy the restaurant. You are not bombarded with mail, and they send out emails on special deals on occasion.
