    This restaurant seemed to us to be trying to be a top notch restaurant but falling a bit short. The prices were high, the servers were rushing us and not very friendly, the food was good, the cocktails were mediocre, and none of it was worth the prices.

    Everything we had was very good but the she crab soup was amazing. Our server suggested it and he was right. It had the most amazing flavor. I’m a Chardonnay drinker and I prefer a oak flavor. I didn’t see one that I knew. I asked the server for a suggestion and what he brought and it was perfect.

    We went to Ray’s for lunch. The service was excellent. Wait staff were very attentive and knew the menu well. Drinks were wonderful and delicious. The bartender obviously knew his/her craft. We all ordered lobster cob salads. Very delicious. Fresh ingredients and wait time for the food was good. Nice ambience and atmosphere. Highly recommended and we’d come back.

    Started with ordering a margarita and a Mia Tia drink. The server (girl) comes back to our table and says that they couldn’t make me a Mia Tia because they had no fruit. So I ordered a margarita. Then ordering the dinner. I ordered a crab cake and gumbo We live on a island where we have excellent fresh sea food restaurants that slept in the Gulf of Mexico last night. My cake was bad and dry. My wife ordered ordered the chicken breast and that to was so dry that she couldn’t cut it. Send it back. Service was bad with long waits to ask if we needed anything. We had to get an other server to help us get more drinks. Our server forgot to put in the order for gumbo. I finished my cake before she got hers back. We were so disappointed that my wife went to speak to the manger. He couldn’t believe what he heard. A 5 star restaurant it’s not. To top it of we order more drinks and a key lime pie. Well we got a cheesecake. The manager came back to our table and told him what just happened. He still couldn’t believe it. Still didn’t get the key lime.

    Started out well as we had early dinner reservations. Drinks and apps came out quickly. The issue we had was before we finished our apps they began bringing out our entrees without clearing the table. The entrees staggered out while we were still working on our apps. We basically had to clear our table to make room for our entrees. Just seemed that the timing could have been better managed. The food was good but things began fell apart from there. Typically once our entrees come out someone would check to see how everything came out or if we needed drinks. That never happened. We often tried to gain the attention of the servers but it was like we were invisible. We finished our meal with no drinks and finally got the attention of the hostess. She came over and seemed frustrated that we asked for service. Once our waiter came over he was very apologetic and basically reminded us how busy they were.

    I hosted a dinner on September 8th at Ray's in the City with two friends that had not been there before. It was a special night out for two very special friends. The food, our waiter Kevin and everything else was just as I had hoped it would be for my friends first Ray's experience. The only reason I did not give this review 5 stars was due to the incredibly rude hostess that was working that night. My husband and I were having dinner there three weeks prior when I reserved a very specific booth for my upcoming ladies night out. I also confirmed my reservation with open table, requesting that specific booth. I called and spoke to a very nice woman the day before on the 7th and she assured me that we had been assigned that exact table and that we were all set. We arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation to see that the hostess working that night had just sat a party of two at the table I had reserved. We could see that they had just been seated, the place was not full and when I went to ask her about what had happened, that I had reserved that table weeks ago and confirmed it just the day prior, she shrugged her shoulders and said " Well, it wasn't me you talked to so you're going to need to choose another table" and then proceeded to look at her phone. I did not ask to speak to a manager or to allow this person to put a damper on our evening so we sat at a different table, but if I was the manager at Ray's, this woman would no longer be working in any capacity that had to do with customers, let alone in my restaurant. What a shame that for my friends very first visit here, the first person they encountered that represents Ray's was a young woman with an attitude like that.

    Wait staff was very attentive. Ambience is nice and subdued. There was live music-we were there on a Thursday night so the live music was nice. Food was great. There were 3 of us for dinner and we had the crab cakes, the chicken and a steak. They were all delicious. We had the pimento cheese fritters for appetizer-totally yummy. Crème Brûlée for dessert! The warm, scented towels after dinner were a very nice added touch!! Definitely would recommend

    Today Teresa was the host and as always she recognized me as a regular customer and seated me. She received my guest when they arrived and seated the guest with me. Teresa is always the gracious host that makes you feel welcome to the restaurant and values me as a customer. It was a 3:30 lunch appointment, thus the restaurant was not crowded so we sat at the bar. Teresa pointed out that the bar tender was an excellent mixologist and would take good care of us seated at the bar. Indeed that was the case. The bar tender helped me to explore the variations of an Old Fashion with Woodford Reserve and Woodford Reserve Rye. A good time was had by all.

    Food amazing, wait and server staff very friendly. Could have provided more air conditioning as it became muggy within the restaurant. Wait staff was pleasant but needed to clear off plates before serving our next course and provide more water in a timely manner as this evening it was hot and muggy. However, would highly recommend!

    There are so many delicious options on the menu! We started with a dozen raw oysters. They were fresh and brainy. The presentation was so much fun because there was a little dry ice under the lemon creating special effects. For entrees we enjoyed the seared scallops over a creamy risotto with crispy onions on top, fantastic! Two people in the group ordered the horseradish crusted black grouper and they were very pleased with their selection. The person who ordered shrimp and grits said it was the best she had ever had. The grits were a more coarse grain than what you get most places. The shrimp were large and flavorful. I ordered the filet mignon served Oscar style - and I highly recommend it! There were two large asparagus spears, a fairly small amount of hollandaise sauce but a generous portion of lump crab meat. The steak was perfectly prepared to order and all of the elements on the plate were in excellent balance. I was especially impressed with the silky quality of the mashed potatoes. In many places a side item like mashed potatoes is forgettable but these were everything I have ever wanted mashed potatoes to be! We did not save room for dessert but we enjoyed every bite we were served!
