Rey's Ratings and Reviews
Many Raleigh area restaurants have promoted themselves as purveyors of New Orleans style cuisine. Few have lived up to their claims. Rey's lives up to their French Quarter claims in both food and decor. They are not Commander's Palace or Galatoire's, but they do come close. I would recommend Rey's with the disclaimer that they are a bit on the pricey side.
We were celebrating our anniversary and had a very enjoyable evening with a delicious meal and attentive service. The crab stuffed flounder and lobster macaroni and cheese were outstanding. We were provided a complimentary celebratory dessert along with a long stemmed rose. Would highly recommend the bananas foster as a delicious, special dessert made table side. Rey, the owner, actually prepared and server our bananas foster and made a point to stop by our table several times. Rey's will probably become our annual anniversary dinner spot.
Had an excellent dinner for my wife's birthday. Her steak was not quite as done as she requested. My 16 ounce ribeye had at least six ounces of fat. The banana foster was out of sight good. All staff were outstanding and the total experience was very good. We'll be back.
Rey's service was impeccable! We arrived 30 minutes early hoping to be seated. They were able to accommodate us immediately, and our servers were very friendly and attentive. The meal was delicious and perfectly presented. I would recommend Rey's to everyone!
We went to Rey's for our Anniversary. The service, food, and atmosphere were all very good. Rey personally came by our table to congratulate us. Our server went out of her way to be friendly and helpful, but did not hover. I strongly recommend for all fine dining occasions.
Polished, attentive service starting from the host desk through final good-byes. We were celebrating a special occasion, and our meal was coursed perfectly. Never rushed, allowing us to relax and enjoy at our own pace. Atmosphere was elegant but comfortable. Solid dining experience. Will definitely return.
I had a hankering for lamb chops with mint jelly. A google search lead me to Rey's website and I had recently heard a radio commercial referencing several local accolades the restaurant has received. Boy were they right, I cannot believe I had not heard of this place before! Food was outstanding, Rey himself frequently checked on our table (just my wife and I) and he even makes the table side Banana's Foster dessert!! Wait staff was very attentive and definitely know their wines, our waiter recommended a fabulous Pinot Noir which was very reasonably priced when he could have only suggested really expensive ones instead. It's definitely not a cheap place but somewhere you have got to try, maybe for a special occasion or date night when you have a sitter. We've been in Raleigh for two years and tried all of the big name spots, this was by far the best we have experienced!!
Rey's is one of the premier restaurants in the area. Their specialty, steaks, are amazing and their chops, chicken and other selections are outstanding, too. The side dishes are as much of an attraction as the main dishes. The service is always impeccable. If you want a true fine dining experience from start to finish, to to Rey's.
This is a wonderful restaurant for dinner, and then more frequently I have gone the more I have enjoyed it. The staff and service or top-notch. And the food is ample and especially good. Rey stops by most evenings to be sure things are going well. I wouldn't Reckitt mended for small kids, but for any adult who wants a good time and good food, this is your place.
This is my favorite upscale restaurant in this area. The staff is phenomenal in taking care of every need and any special requests. The food is superb. I have eaten many different items and everything is cooked perfectly and is delicious. Rey is almost always at the restaurant always comes around to greet his guests and truly makes you feel like a friend, not just a customer. Make sure to save room for desert, because they are unbelievable.
If you haven't been lately you'll be happy with the new décor. Everything from paint to upholstery has given the restaurant a fresh feel. Of course the food and service is always consistently good. Although it was very busy last Saturday night, the food nor the service was compromised. Rey, Christina and staff did an amazing job!
I ordered the 10oz fillet mignon medium rare, which was brought to the table only warm, with little to no char and unremarkable flavor. Only the part in contact with the plate was hot. Rey, the owner, offered in a somewhat snarky manner to "char it in the oven" for me, but no good could have come of that if this is his normal cooking style. The bleu cheese lettuce wedge had a slightly "off" taste. The creme brulee seemed like it was premade and pulled from the fridge--cold and dense, not light with a fresh, warm caramelized top as it should be. Not up to par with Sullivan's or Ruth's Chris other than their pricing. Last visit was 10 years ago and not much has changed--I doubt I'll be back a third time.
For our first time there we were pleasantly surprised! Decor was lovely and our server Jason was amazing! He was knowledgeable, personable and seemed to go the extra mile. Rey was walking around making Bananas Foster and Cherries jubilee. He even stopped by our table to say hello and make sure we were good to go! I can't wait to come back.
We made reservations at Rey's for our anniversary at the recommendation of a friend. The eye pleasing presentation of the food and the unexpected blend of flavors made our experience delightful. The wait staff was knowledgeable and very attentive. We have already recommended this restaurant to friends and look forward to dining there again very soon.
