Rey's may be my new favorite restaurant! The service was impeccable and the food was perfect. My friend and I had filet mignon steaks, salad with berries and goat cheese, seared scallops, mixed vegetables, and flaming bananas foster for dessert. Except for the steaks, we tasted all of one another's dishes. That evening and even the next day, we couldn't stop raving about the restaurant. It was one of the best meals I can recall.

The salad could have had a zestier dressing and lacked ricotta cheese. (Very little given) Good service and excellent steak.

We have been dining at Reys for over 8 years and have never had a bad meal or bad experience. The food is consistently great, the wait staff excels & Rey truly cares about his clientele. You cannot go wrong in selecting Reys for a fine dining experience.

When we want a true dining experience, we go to Rey's, and are always satisfied, both with the food and also with the service. We like it that the pace is unhurried, and the wait people are always gracious. Our salads were chilled and crisp; our steaks sizzling, aromatic, and tender-- absolutely delicious, punctuating the total experience to our pre-meal cocktails. Altogether, a total YUM!

Not sure the turtle soup actually had any turtle in it. Entrees came out late. Lamb was four chops on a plate - poor presentation - and they were overcooked - medium instead of medium rare as ordered. Wine was overpriced.

Rey's is elegant dining. We love to come to Rey's for special occasions. We have been to Rey's many times. Our favorite dessert is the Banana's Foster (serves 2). Rey himself comes to your table and makes in there in front of you.

Delicious food and outstanding service. The medallions with scallops and the grouper with crab meat were perfectly done and served. We each had a salad and they, too, were delicious. We look forward to returning.

We have dined there several times and have been happy with every single experience. The food is fantastic and the service is on point. A great place for an intimate dinner. Always looking for a reason to go back.
We went to Rey's during Triangle Week fixe price menu. While this is a great opportunity to try new restaurant, we decided to go back to Rey's because it's close to home. While the plates were hot, my salmon was look warm, closer to cold. Weeks before that same salmon was perfect. Then the service, we asked 3 times for bread, got a stupid excuse each time and never got it without any explanation. Is bread a problem at Rey's? The server had a fake smile and tried to make conversation as I was not getting what I want. We didn't not feel we got the same food and service during restaurant week. Rey's is much better than that. Sad. :(.
Went during Restaurant Week (for the first time) and expected the special menu would mean their portions would be smaller, but they were actually generous. All four of us had diffrent entrees, and the food exceeded our expectations. It was a quiet and elegant atmosphere. We can't wait to return to Rey's.
My friends and I visited for restaurant week. For my three course meal, I ordered fields green salad, filet mignon with green beans, and raspberry chocolate truffles cake. Salad was great, the steak was a little dry (I ordered medium rare and it was more of a medium), green beans were nothing special, and chocolate truffle cake was decent but too sweet for my liking. Overall, the food was average. But what really made the whole experience was the phenomenal service. Our server, Jim, was extremely friendly and Rey actually came around twice and asked us how we were doing.
Wonderful food, service, and atmosphere!
As always, Rey's provides wonderful food, excellent service, and quiet and romantic atmosphere. The best NY strip in the Triangle!!!
We went for restaurant week. It was the most tender filet I have ever had.
We love going to Rey's for every special occasion - birthdays, anniversaries, etc. It was especially great this time to go for Restaurant Week and get all the same delicious food for a great price. It's a nice touch to have Rey himself stop by each nite to check on you as well.
Will be back!
I went to Rey's to take advantage of Triangle Restaurant Week. It was delicious. The staff was outstanding. The manager came out and personally greeted every table. The sweet tea was the best I have ever had. I can't wait to go back. I saw many other items on the menu that I can't wait to try.
2nd visit was a let down
So my boyfriend and I went to Rey's for our 2 year anniversary and to take advantage of the Triangle Restaurant Week pricing. We'd been once before and absolutely loved every aspect of our experience and I just HAD to go back! Unfortunately this time was a complete let down. Our server was subpar. We ordered the same items, aside from how we wanted our steaks cooked, but when the salads came out we each had a different one. We said "hmm honest mistake and we shrugged it off, no biggie!" Next up were the entrees and sides. Nope! That was messed up and we had to correct them on one of the side dishes. Finally it was dessert time and we were so excited to get our cheesecakes. Nope! Only one cheesecake came out with a creme brûlée, which we didn't order, so we had to send that back. Each time an error occurred our waiter wasn't there to see because other waiters brought them out so we couldn't inform him. For a $70+ tab good food AND good service is a must and this was just unacceptable! This really has soured our experience with Rey's.
Great meal, nice ambience, service spotty
Our server forgot us after we asked for the bill, we had to wait 10-15 minutes to get it. But we didn't get it from him, we had to flag down another server and request it. Fortunately the other server, a young lady, was attentive to our needs. Our original server saw what was happening and finally came with a second copy of the bill, but it was too late by then. He never apologized for ignoring us and actually made light of it which wasn't appreciated. The food and atmosphere here were great, but our server's omission and inattentiveness put a damper on a nice dining experience.
Took my lady here for her birthday dinner. Very friendly. Nice ambience. A little pricey. Food is pretty good. Hit and miss depending on your preferences on the sides but the meat was definitely well seasoned and cooked.
I love Rey's
I'm so glad I found Rey's. They are a high-end steakhouse along the lines of Ruth's Chris, but with a family touch. The owner (Rey) is always there and always stops by to say hello and make sure everything is wonderful. The food is exquisite, and they can handle special requests like 'a bone-in ribeye done Pittsburgh style except make sure the steak is medium on the inside instead of a true Pittsburgh'. And at the end: bananas foster, prepared tableside, by Rey. Heaven. We go several times a year.
Rey's never disappoints. Great service & great food. Nice wine list.

Excellent food and service! Wonderful place to celebrate our anniversary. Looking forward to returning soon!
Not a fan
This place has the potential to be a really great place. However, the food fell way short of my expectations for a steak house. We both had the ribeye steaks. Unfortunately the steaks were a very poor cut, somewhat tough, and tasted as if they were previously frozen and thawed in the microwave. Additionally the sides were somewhat blan particularly for a restaurant with a New Orleans theme. But the service was great and the bar drinks were fantastic. We will probably return for a seat at the bar and a cocktail or two, but not for dinner.

Excellent! 30th anniversary date night. Filet "cut like butta ", asparagus and mashed potatoes where excellent and the chocolate raspberry truffle cake melted in your mouth! And we could hear each other without shouting over noise (getting more important at our "age" ;-))
Fantastic server Alison. Great job and very friendly!!

We have been regular customer's at Rey's for several years now and they never disappoint. The food, atmosphere and service is excellent. You are made to feel welcome as soon as you walk in the door and on every occasion Rey has come and checked up on us personally. One of the things we like most about Rey's is the consistency in food and service quality. We have been there when they are very busy and we have been there when they were slow but our experience has always been the same. Excellent! Rey and his staff have truly mastered the art of hospitality, we tip our hats to you.

We had heard of Rey's for many years but never visited. We made a last minute reservation to celebrate our anniversary, taking our 2 adult and 1 teenaged children. The food did not disappoint. Everything was cooked wonderfully and it was all delicious. There was a wide enough variety on the menu so that there was something for everybody. It is pricey, but great quality. I had a steak and it wasn't the best steak I had ever had ( we have eaten at a lot of top steakhouses) but would be in my top five. I will say that the side dishes are all served family style and aren't as large as we expected. We ordered 3 different sides for our table and the waiter agreed with that quantity. While the actual quantity of food total was adequate, the sides are fairly small portions, so for 5 people to each have some of each is tough. Drinks were great, wine selection pretty good. We were there on a weeknight so it was somewhat empty and quiet, but the atmosphere isn't very romantic. The main dining room is fairly large and open. We will definitely return.

We have been to Rey's on multiple occasions and have always found the food and service to be exemplary. This was once again the case. I had previously noted to my wife that the entire experience reminded me of the best restaurants in New Orleans; she had the opportunity to go to NOLA with me earlier this year and now understands what I was talking about.

We have been twice now and they have not seen the last of us. Great place to eat and visit. You never feel harried. The staff is the best in giving great service. Can't wait to return even tho it is over an hour drive.

From the moment you walked in the door it was absolutely fabulous. We dine here a few times a year and this experience was one of the best that we've ever had. We ordered multiple items on the menu the best thing by far I've ever had was the prime rib steak oh my God it's delicious. Will definitely be coming back as well as recommended this restaurants to our friends and family thank you!
Can't Wait to Return
