    Ray's in the city was amazing! The starters and the entrees were delicious. The ambience was great and the service was outstanding. It's a little loud but tolerable. Overall it was a great meal and outstanding service. Also, the hot towel to clean your hands at the end was chef's kiss! Very nice and personal touch!

    Starters were wonderful…we had she crab soup and loaded potato skins and both were very flavorful. The entrees were quite disappointing, especially for the price. The grouper was overdone and rubbery, and bone-in rib-eye was not very tender and was chewy. We got the side of mushrooms which were also disappointing as they were chewy and lacked flavor. Service was outstanding and ambience was pretty good. Overall mildly disappointed based on the food quality.

    Nothing special- good service but nothing over the top- told another table about options available and interacted with us minimally. Food was good - bread was amazing- hubby rated the grouper a 7 and I felt the same way about my steak and shrimp.

    My family and I made reservations in October to dine here for Thanksgiving. Our reservations were at 7pm but we didn’t get seated until 8:30pm. Some people were waiting 3 hours to be seated WITH reservations. As a previous server at another high end restaurant, it seems like they overbooked and allowed greed to take priority over service. Once we were finally seated, our servers were awesome and the food was even better. I would recommend to management to enforce a time limit next time or not accept as many reservations. If my family and I do decide to come back for Thanksgiving 2023, I will make sure to book in August or September to ensure we can get an earlier reservation.

    We had 7 PM reservations and ended up eating at the bar because the wait was at minimum 2 hours. When we got there the place was so crowded you would not have thought everyone had reservations. Thankfully we got a seat at the bar after 25 mins and I was there with my older parents. We literally had to decide to eat at the bar because we were starving and I was light headed. At 9 PM we asked how many people head of us and was told 6. Just finished our food at the bar on Thanksgiving.... let me clear... we ate Thanksgiving dinner about 2 hours late at the bar!!

    They were woefully underprepared for Thanksgiving. Hour-plus waits, even with a reservation. Waitstaff openly badmouthing customers after not getting a good tip, which honestly sounded fair to me -- our waiter disappeared for a good 45 minutes at one point. It took so long to get food out that we just had them box it up. Allegedly the kitchen lost our ticket, but when everyone's getting the same food, that shouldn't be an issue. They only seemed to cater to the folks who were complaining the loudest, leaving other customers to fend for themselves. And they clearly believe that their reputation isn't worth them trying to secure repeat business. Definitely don't trust for a potentially busy holiday.

    I don't really write reviews but I had to for this restaurant. This place might be nice on a day that's not a holiday but do not come here for Thanksgiving. We made a reservation two weeks in advance just for there to be told that there is a 35 min wait when we arrived. That wait time turned into 1 hour. We decided to wait nearby because the waiting area was full with people also waiting for their reservations. When I received the text that our table was ready, I responded that we were on the way and was at the restaurant within 5 mins just to be told that they gave our table away because we weren't there in the allotted time (there was no time given). We were forced to wait for another table and we were finally sat by 7:05p for a reservation that was originally for 5:45p. The servers were great and are the only reason why they're getting 3 stars instead of 1. Food was okay but you could tell that because they were rushed, it affected the quality.

    We went for thanksgiving dinner so of course it was extremely packed. It took a while to get seated but once we were, the service was very timely and everything (except the soup) was absolutely delicious. Will definitely eat here again!

    Holiday rush; extremely loud, seating extremely slow even with reservations. Food service very slow and mixed up. Food nice and properly prepared but not extraordinary considering the prices charged. Wine prices completely out of line. Would not, repeat not, recommend for Thanksgiving dinner.

    They wait time was ridiculous we had reservation and had to wait over a hour and it was probably longer we end up eating at the bar. It should be a time limit at the tables so you all would be able to accommodate everyone's reservation time.

    A friend and I dined a Ray's in the City for a shared birthday celebration, which I noted on our reservation and we had an excellent meal in addition to being treated well by the front of house staff and our server. The staff were very attentive and kept wishing us happy birthday. Our server Terrence B. was phenomenally and took excellent care of us from the start. He also made great recommendations from the beverage and food menus. We shared the bread basket as an appetizer and the bread arrived pipping hot! It was delicious and we definitely took home leftovers. For my meal, I had the horseradish blackened group with seasonal vegetables (in this case brussels sprouts and cauliflower) and it was so so good. I ended up taking home leftovers and it was as good the next day, even re-heated. My friend had their crab cakes, a favorite of hers, and they were as good as the last time she ate them. For dessert, I tried their house made praline bowl with pecans, vanilla ice cream and berries. Delicious! That was a great recommendation from Terrence. My friend had the key lime pie and loved it too. Thank you to the staff of Ray's in the City for making our birthday dinner so welcoming and special.

    Great food. Great ambiance. Great service once I was seated. However, they would not allow me in the restaurant until my entire party was present. Why? Why make guests wait outside when you have the room to seat them? Hardly any people in the place when I arrived...made no sense to me. For this reason, I won't go back.

    Party of 4. The sampler platter appetizer was really good. Hot, fresh and plenty of food. Our main courses came out FAST! This was BAD since 3 of the 4 were undercooked big time. Medium rare steak was raw and freezing cold inside. What was weird was the server hitting me up to review her right at the table when my bill was "being prepared". When I declined 3 times she became less than friendly. Doubtful I'll come back. I couldn't recommend Ray's, sorry.
