"Have missed the late manta frenzy. However, have really enjoyed sunset seating and attentive servers, fast drinks and first courses from the bar. The Sheraton team have their priorities and management together."

"We chose Rays on the Bay because of the location and assumed it would be good service and great food considering it's located in a Sheraton. The front desk and hostess staff were good, but our waitress was not. She did not know the menu at all, and when we asked for clarification on a couple of menu items (which sides are suitable for a Celiac?) she did not know and had to ask the kitchen. Fair enough I guess, but she seemed annoyed she had to go ask, and then she didn't come back for almost 10 minutes.
We ordered our food and one of our two meals was wrong. I asked for the correct meal and by the time it was delivered, my husband had long finished his. Mistakes happen, but we didn't get anything more then a passing 'sorry' and they did not comp the meal. She did comp the drinks (one alcoholic drink, on pop), but it was not equivalent to what the meal cost.
I spoke with the floor supervisor before we left and she apologized and asked if we would try again another night. Unfortunately we were leaving the next day so wouldn't have a chance. By that time, we had already paid, but the supervisor agreed we should have had our meal comped. She agreed to talk to the server about her service and we left it at that. No chance to give it a second try as we were leaving the next night.

"Rays on the Bay has a wonderful location, with a spectacular, panoramic ocean view. The food on our most recent visit was really exceptional, especially the fresh catch entree. But the prices are just astounding! Evidently, people are willing to pay them, because it was very crowded."

"It's hard to beat the view from a table at Ray's. On our visit we easily watched two or three whales as the sun was setting due West.
We had stopped in to catch a meal before going to the Aloha Theater for a performance, so since they do not open the restaurant proper until 530p, we knew our stay would have to be brief, which is what we told our server.
Three of us had the "signature" burger ($17.00) which was good with the local Hamakua mushrooms (tasty). The roll your own pupu looked fine with sashimi and other ingredients.
Three of us had the Mai Tai cocktail, the fourth a glass of Pinot Grigio. The Mai Tai's are $12.00 each and are served in a small stem tulip glass. This would be a fine $8.00 drink...but 12?????
So, if you don't mind being charged premium prices for some items, you would have a hard time beating the view. Your choice. We'll go elsewhere.

"We selected Rays because they offered a deck view of the Manta Rays. When we got there they told us the deck was closed due to the surf. We made the reservation earlier in the week so we could get a deck table, and even called them in person to review the presentation on the Rays and make sure it didn't interfere with reservation time. When we got there they told us the viewing deck was closed due to high surf. What upset us the most was the deck had been closed all week. So they should have told us the issue when we made the reservation. We could make a decision.
The perception was all they wanted was to get our money for dinner. Because of course with the deck closed more people are jammed into the available space and we didn't even get to sit on the ocean railing.
