We had a reservation for 8:30pm. We arrived early at 7:45. We checked in and waited. Got sat down at 8:40 from the very nice hostess. Then we never saw another server, manager, or employee for 30 minutes. Even the table next to us had their drinks before we sat down but never ordered food. Finally after not seeing a person for 30 minutes we decided to go to the bar and just order there cause at least the bartenders were behind there. Sat down. Asked to order food and were told you were closed. And there were no more orders being taken. Then we’re asked to leave since we had no drinks or food. They literally were locking the door on us. So we didn’t even get to eat. But all the food they walked by us for an hour and a half did look amazing. Just need to figure out service again cause I’ve never in my life experienced anything like that. Having reservations and never eating.

Excellent food and service. It took a bit long but it was a very busy night.
A+ for having servers who spoke Spanish which made it easier for my customers to order.

I eat here every time I am in town. Always great! This time I had the horseradish grouper and thought it was a little strong. Made up for it with The Crème Brulee

Great ambience, nice quiet setting. I can appreciate a restaurant that isn’t blasting music so that guests can have a conversation, and that’s how it was at Ray’s. Love it!

The service was top notch overall (with one minor gaffe. More on that later). We were initially given a booth, and it was incredibly cramped even for two persons. They kindly moved us to a table for a much better experience. I suggest they do something about those booths.

The waiters were attentive and courteous. We had the cedar plank salmon. The fish was cooked perfectly. However I did not care for the rice/risotto underneath. Very hard and probably indigestible. Wish I had requested sautéed spinach or something.

Oh and about that minor mixup, we ordered a key lime pie to go, but they delivered a cheese cake. Didn’t realize it until we got home.

Despite the minor hiccups, I still recommend the place and I will gladly return soon.

We love Ray's - especially their oysters. We did miss the piano music last night. It really adds to the ambience. Food was still excellent.

Some of the worst food for the money I have ever had. Salad was overdressed and soggy. JumboCrab cakes that are $48 had a tiny tiny bit of white crab, the rest was filler and gray.
Service was honestly appalling. Two servers, no bread for 20 minutes, even though I asked several times and it was clearly being served around me. Appetizer came ar the same time as entree, had to flag down multiple times for a second glass if wine.
Thus comes in st close to $359 for two people with two glasses of wine ($25 each!) go elsewhere

Delicious food and fantastic service. We had “T” as our waitress and she was excellent - very attentive. Shared the crab cake appetizer, each had a petite filet and shared two sides. It was tough but still had room to share the warm butter cake with blueberry compote for dessert. Save room for it!!

We have enjoyed dining at Ray's several times. While pricey, it is convenient to the market. Food always good, service usually excellent. We return annually at least once.

Service was extremely lacking. Both my wine glass and water cup were empty for over 15 minutes and my server was no where to be found. I had to go to the bar to get another drink.

This was by far the best dining experience ever! First rate service from Jesus and Naggy! We enjoyed every bite of our delicious meal and dessert, savored every drop of our Martinis! As a matter of fact we didn't want to leave so ordered a custom made dessert martini and never felt rushed. We look forward to returning tomorrow if we can get in😄thanks a million💕

Was a bit worried when me and my wife both ordered the same 8 oz filet and hers was half the thickness of mine. Both orders were medium rare, hers turned out medium and mine was completely rare/blue. We were with other people and had a show to catch at the Tabernacle, so we just ate what we could and hinted that the meals weren’t cooked correctly to the staff. No acknowledgments, just a $300 bill and an average experience.

Shrimp was over cooked. Hungry so we ate them. Crab bisque was very salty. Steak was good and scallops were needed a little seasoning. Staff was very friendly. Waited three years and finally made a reservation. Not sure what the hype was about. Maybe just ordered the wrong thing.
