I had been to Ray’s before and enjoyed the food and service. I was very disappointed when we ordered 1 appetizer, 3 entrees, and 3 sides. The waiter brought 2 each of the spinach and 2 mushrooms and 1 of the Brussels sprouts. When I asked why the extra sides were brought I was told that “usually” 2 sides (of each) per person were recommended so, he brought 2 extra even though I had not ordered them. This is a terrible practice and resulted in wasted food. The server was upset when I asked to have the extra, untouched sides, removed from the bill.

Jesus was an awesome server! We had a concert to get to and so he kept the food timed so that we could meet our schedule but still enjoy the fabulous meal. We would highly recommend ordering family style so you get to try it all!

It started off strong with service but quickly went down hill. The portions are extremely large. My mom and I could have split a salad and an entree. The food was ok. It’s not a meal that I will remember one way or the other. For two of us with fish entrees, a salad, and a glass of wine it ran close to $200 with tip. For this I would expect something more than a ho hum meal.

It was loud in there but the food was spot on and terrific. The service was efficient and there was a lot of teamwork happening to make everyone happy as guests. The wait service was knowledgeable. And the decor and cleanliness was very nice. It was loud in there but that was the only drawback. Food and service was on point. Good date night.

Great dinner! The Lobster Mac n Cheese is incredible! Scallops were very good- could’ve been seared a touch more for my taste. The cocktails were delicious and quite generous. The Peach Martini was excellent. Our servers were very attentive and friendly. Definitely recommend and we’d go back again.

Had a really great experience with Tee our server. She was absolutely amazing. We didn't have high hopes given a previous experience at a restaurant down the street. But Tee delivered above and beyond and showed that Atlanta does have good service. Will definitely try and visit again

I went to Ray’s for my sister’s birthday. I found out they still serve raisin bread in bread basket. My previous server Telesa lied and said they did not. Ray’s still gives you a free birthday desert for free. My previous server lied about that also. I really enjoyed my food and so did my sister. The service was excellent.

I was celebrating my birthday, as well as, attending a concert in town. My coworker recommended this place and showed me what she had, so I had to go. First thing first, Najee was the very best! Attentive, funny, and very professional! We arrived as soon as the restaurant opened, so it was nice a quiet. We didn’t have to wait long at all for our food either. I cannot wait to return to try other items on the menu.

I just took my fiance for his 40th bday last night and we were interested because of the menu displayed on open table with the ribs. He loves ribs so I said this would be perfect and the price was great. However, they dont tell you that its only to-go and you can only order seafood when dining in. I thought that was very misleading. We ordered anyway and everything was pretty good but I was disappointed in the lobster mac n cheese. Barely any lobster...it was a few crumbs on top that were stuck in the baked too layer and the rest was just like velveeta shells n cheese. I was looking for it to be as exceptional as Ruth Chris's version but it did not compare and it was $5 more. Other than that the ambiance was great and service was decent. I would like to try Rays on the River to compare.

Ray’s was such a great spot for date night. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and had quite a few recommendations. I had the New York strip and my partner had the shrimp scampi. We throughly enjoyed our food. My partner said it was the one of the best shrimp scampi’s he had ever had

Our waiter was great. Unfortunately I didn't catch his name but he was really exceptional. I normally try to avoid dessert but he talked us into it...glad we did. The lump crab cake was by far the best I ever had only wished they served them in pairs 😋. The fish I had was prepared with a nice crunch.
Down side there is no parking validation for lunch service. So be prepared to pay full price for parking when you find parking.

We have an excellent time at Rays.Our server Hallie was extremely personable professional and outstanding. We enjoyed the barbecue shrimp and grits which is a mustard. We have the porterhouse for two is our entree with some great steakhouse sides and finish tonight with the butter cake dessert. Everything was excellent and the staff went out of their way to make our special occasions truly special.

We were seated promptly given we were early for our reservation. After being seated it took 20 minutes for a staff member to attend to us. We ordered waters and drinks which took 15 minutes to arrive. Once the drinks came service picked up but the overall promptness of service was lacking. The gentlemen who helped us had a good attitude and was kind.
