Rey's Ratings and Reviews

Food is everything you expect for $100 per person when it's all tallied. Atmosphere matches with widely spaced tables like restaurants did 30 years ago, linens, carpet that reduces noise even more (rare these days) and soft, ambient lighting. Other reviews are right - the bar pours real drinks and the bartenders know what they're doing. Two disappointments: 1) The live entertainment was a no-show on a Saturday night so the bar was dead after dinner 2) It took 75 minutes after ordering before our food began arriving and we got varied excuses from different servers/the owner. We drove 45 minutes from Wake Forest to make a night of it. Started awesome, then gradually unraveled as the night progressed (in a bad way). Can't fault the food or attempted recovery at the service screw up but it was too little too late.

The entire experience was perfect the food, the setting, the service and well worth the time and the price. I cannot say enough about Jason our server, he made the dining experience perfect and the evening perfect.

Was very crowded on a Friday night. Waitstaff brought my wife's salad and forgot to order mine. My steak was supposed to be medium; it arrived rare. Normally Rey's is an excellent experience. Just caught a bad night.

We were a bit disappointed with the service. Our waiter kept referring to us as "you guys" and had 2 pens stuck in his shirt between the buttons. For the price of the food you would also expect not to have to ask for bread. It took a long time for water to come to the table and when it did, it was spilled on two different occasions. It was my husband's birthday so we thought we would go somewhere fancy. The food was very good, but I would rather go to Ruth's Criss or Second Empire for the price.

The host large parties and we were seated next to one of those rooms and the doors stayed open and was a little annoying but over all it was good I would go back. I'm very picky with food quality and service. The service is what you would except. The quality was good and flavorful. Overall I would recommend going at least once. it was very nice and Rey himself check on you through out your meal.

The staff was very friendly and welcoming. We went because the steaks had been highly recommended by a friend. My steak was OK but nothing special and my wife felt the same about her veal Marsala. Our appetizers were very good but our sides were underwhelming. All in all, we were not that impressed and will not be back.

The food is very good. It's not the best, foodies will be disappointed. It's very good. But the service cannot be beat. Every visit you will find the best service in town. Top knotch servers. Date or large group, the service is the best you can find. Go there, enjoy.

This is one of our new favorite Cary places, particularly because my husband loves their veal dishes, which are priced quite reasonably. The steak is also excellent, and they make a mean martini, shaken at the table and poured into a frosty glass. What's not to like?!

I did not add the gratuity in the bill as I put in much more than needed, and didn't think it would be fair to show such a high cost.
Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING was wonderful. This is TRUE dining. I haven't found another place that I felt comfortable going to eat but it was fancy enough to really feel like you were out for dining!

Absolutely not worth the cost. We were celebrating our wedding Anniversary and was looking forward to a great steak. My wife asked for medium well and the first time are steak was medium rare. She asked to send it back and this time it came out Well done. The waiter didn't want to stick around to see if my wife was satisfied; instead he walks away. I couldn't find the lobster in the lobster mac & cheese. There must have been a piece somewhere in the mix. Rey's is off our list of priority dining and especially for a special occasion. God we should have gone to Rith's Chris for almost the same price.

Service was great. My husband had veal Marsala he loved it. We shared their flourless chocolate raspberry cake Devine. My filet was not very good I'm hoping it was a fluke, but my fault for not sending it back. I did eat it. But was not the best.

Dinner at Rey's was good, we were seated on time and the food delivery was well timed out. We had the Lobster bites appetizer which was good but a little overcooked. Next we had a lobster Bisque soap and a chopped salad. The soup was very good the salad a little heavy on the dressing. For our entree we each had filet, the filet was cooked to order, it was tender with decent texture it was a little flavorless which being a filet is not unheard of but this was a little more then normal.

Appetizer we ordered scallops, fried oyster and ahi tuna. All excellent. For entrée, Steak was great but grouper was bland and oily. For dessert, the banana foster was great. Drink wise, Whiskey based cocktails were good, Manhattan and old fashioned.

The pan-seared scallops were absolutely the best! We had them with the beef tournedos, which were also excellent. The Bananas Foster is always a special dessert. We decided that Rey's is our new favorite restaurant!

Great Meal, as Always. Food selection, quality and staff made for a memorable night. Plenty to choose, steaks, seafood and chicken (and vegetarian too). Wife had turf and surf. The lobster was expertly prepared. Summer salad was a good choice from our regular wedge salad.
Overall, a great time.

Rey's is great; however, they had a large private party (radio station) who were very loud as they went back and forth. I know this was not the norm for Rey's. I will go back to Rey's as the food and service are great!
