Gorgeous new courtyard for outdoor dining, weddings, social events or al fresco dining.
Absolutely amazing!!!!! Every item we had was delicious! Can’t wait to return.
We always dine at Rey's for significant events. Rey is the perfect host and runs the perfect restaurant. Will attend again.
Great southern hospitality, great food with a romantic, relaxing and peaceful atmosphere.
Excellent Valentine’s Day dinner! Service was wonderful and the food was delicious!
I am assuming that the debonair gentleman in the sport coat was Rey. How many restaurants does the owner or manager introduce himself while you are waiting for your table? How many restaurants does the owner or manager come by twice while you are eating and check to make sure you are happy and having a good time? Never happens. Simply above and beyond the call.
Two waiters were assigned to our table (Jasmine and David). We were only a party of four. Service was simply outstanding. REY's does it better than anywhere else I have been.
We enjoy Rey's, go 3 or 4 times a year. My husband had the bone in ribeye, what he normally orders and it has always been good. I tried the Lobster/New York Strip combination, not what I normally order and it was not good. This is my mistake because I have always felt Rey's overcooks their lobster and this time was no exception. The waiter reacted instantly when he saw that I was not eating and brought out some new lobster but it was cooked the same. The second time the waiter did not react, even though he walked by several times. Eventually my husband called him over and indicated I couldn't eat the dinner. Rey was in house and took the strip/lobster off the bill, appropriately. Of course we will go back, just want order the lobster.
Very good service. Food was very good as well. Ambiance was nice. We sat in a room with only four other couples. Very quiet and nice.
Consistently the best high end dining experience in Raleigh!
As usual the service and food were great. Keep in mind that Rey's specialty really is beef. I had the tuna this trip and while it was quite good, my wife's steak by her own account "incredible". While Rey's desserts are all excellent, the cheesecake is the best I have ever tried. Dense but not sweet even though it has a few fresh berries on top.
Everything was perfection from the bread to the salad and soup to the meats to the scallops to the sides to the desserts. The service was exceptional. It was awesome.
Delicious food and knowledgeable waiters. Will be returning soon
Really good. .
As always, Great! This has become our go to place. From the minute you walk in to the minute you leave, you feel like you have been friends with the staff and owner for years.
Excellent service, food and ambiance. We always look forward to dining at Rey's!
First time at Rey’s and will most definitely be back. Chef’s choice for starters and wine pairing. Amazing meal and staff.
Excellent experience! We love visiting with Rey and his staff for the special events of our lives!
Fantastic as always!
Good food and service. One of waiters waiting on a table had a very loud noise which was a little distracting but overall service was good and food was good too.
We had another fabulous meal at Rey's and look forward to our next visit.
Always a great place to eat, Rey is always talking to everyone and making sure his customers leave satisfied! Great Staff as well.
Very nice building, atomsphere, and ambience. Complimentary valet parking. We made reservations here on open table for Valentine’s Day night. The hostess looked confused and couldn’t find our reservation which was embarrassing, however, the manager quickly said it makes no difference and they promptly seated us anyway, which I thought was excellent. However, they appeared to scramble through it with two hostesses misunderstanding each other in snappy tones about whether to see if a table was ready or to seat us and dropping a menu on the floor. (Don’t fire them they don’t deserve it, I honestly felt bad for them, they were probably embarrassed.) I gave lots of stars because the place is really great but if I’m paying well over $100 for dinner I didn’t expect to hear about the restaurants problem with not finding my reservation. They should be able to create a flawless experience. But again, the manager did do an excellent job by immediately seating us anyway, but it would’ve been better if we didn’t know they couldn’t find our reservation. Because we definitely had one, complete with an email reminder and confirmation number, which fortunately we did not have to show. I would still recommend. Very nice, delicious place. I recommend the Rey’s Manhattan martini!
I, personally, have been going to Rey’s since 2006 and my family and I have known Rey personally since the restaurant opened. In the last 6 years, my husband and I have made Rey’s our Valentine’s Day tradition and Rey has never let us down; unfortunately, this year was mediocre at best. Firstly, we’ve been going for 6 years regularly and we continue to get less than desirable tables, so it’d be nice to have a seat that isn’t in the middle of the highest traffic and this year was the worst yet. I’d recommend a system to track your loyalty. Secondly, I had the veal, which I’ve had countless times, and it not only looked awful, it had clearly been sitting under a heat lamp for some time. I had to scrape off the film from the top. Net-net, even on Valentine’s Day (perhaps especially on Valentine’s Day), we paid $180 for a meal and it wasn’t worth it this year, regardless of every other experience. We’ve both have regrettably decided that we’ll be trying a new spot next year and hope we get our money’s worth.
Very good,but my husband said he was surprised the his steak was a little tough
Rey’s is excellent. But for its price point and quality, there were two oversights of service that were glaring that Rey’s competitors close and abroad do. First, we ordered a bottle of wine. After the first pour, the waitstaff never refilled our glasses. Second, after dinner, we were never offered coffee.
Rey's is always a great experience. Even when things are not perfect the overall experience is above the average. In a rare event, we were served the wrong temp and the wrong steaks overall...we got another tables steaks. They quickly made us new ones and mafe sure they were correct before leaving the table. I am surprised they did not comp us a desert or take an app off the bill.
Great food, great service. Truly the only complaint is we had reservations for Valentine’s Day and were put in a small room that that also set a couple with two very small kids. Hard to hard a romantic night out with the wife (that we doesn’t happen to often) with loud kids. Not sure why they weren’t sat in the bar area or a louder area, not a small room with 4 tables in it. Otherwise great experience for our first time.
The chicken was seasoned just right!
The service was exceptional. The food absolutely delicious.!!!
I will definitely be back. The service, environment, food, dessert, waiters were phenomenal. I have been to other places (empire, angus barn, and some other nice ones), and Rey’s is at the top. We spent just a little leas at Rey’s and the food portion was more. We loved the service provided by David, Jazmin, and the gentleman who walked around ensuring everyone was being taken care of. We made a reservation and landed in the back room (away from the general crowd). This gave our valentines day dinner a special touch. Please don’t be cheap, it is worth the money. And tip generously...at least 20%. They give top motch service. Thank you Rey’s, we will be back.
Always a pleasant evening and meal at Rey's . Service and food were outstanding. Waitress was fabulous. I think her name was Ariana.
We come to Rey's anytime we have a special occasion and we're always satisfied. Food and service are great. And that Rey goes around to each table makes it even more special.
Wonderful experience. Great food, service, and atmosphere. Highly recommended.
Consistently excellent food and truly outstanding service. Manager Jason is on top of everything.
First visit to this restaurant. Wonderful everything!! I will be back. The Owner Rey came by our table to say hello and ask if we were ok. At first I did not know he was the owner. He should introduce himself so we could give additional praise. Thanks to Rey and all his staff for an outstanding experience and wonderful steaks!! See you again soon!
The overall experience at Rey's for our Valentine's day celebration was memorable! My wife was catered to by our server, Christie, with great recommendations ranging from our selection tion of wine to the side dishes, including the Lobster Mac and Cheese. The final recommendation was the icing on the cake, the flourless chocalate raspberry cake. We look forward to going back soon!
Food order was reversed and did not realize it til after a few bites. Other than that all was well
My wife and I share a birthday and we could not have asked for better service and quality of food. We highly recommend Rey's.
A great place with incredible food and atmosphere. Perfect for a date night!
My husband and I have frequented Rey's in the past on our anniversaries. My husband passed away last year so this was my first anniversary without him. My son surprised me and asked for my OpenTable info. to setup a reservation since he knew I used your app. I was thoroughly delighted when my son told me he wanted to take me to Rey's in his father's place. Talking about having a Wow'd moment!! Like father like son :)
Service was on point, that's what made it so special. The food was good, but wasn't anything to special in my opinion but it was good.
