Rey's Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I went to Rey's to celebrate our 17th anniversary and we couldn't have made a better choice. I chose Rey's based on a recommendation from friends and they were right:) The food was excellent and the service was top notch.....ask for Marcus or Ryan:) The bananas foster is out of this world. Certainly will not be our last visit to Rey's!
The ambience and service were excellent. Also, the food was excellent, except the hollandaise sauce was not very authentic. But the red wine was not very good and extremely overpriced. This is the third time we have been to Rey's, and I'm afraid our enthusiasm about the restaurant has lessened.
This was my first visit to Reys. We really enjoyed it. My husband loved his filet. For me the lobster Mac and cheese and chopped salad were wonderful. Our waiter was phenomenal and understanding of us bringing a small child to dinner. We would definitely return.
Food was excellent as usual and so was the service. Adam and Jim were our servers and did an excellent job. We were a party of four for my wife's birthday and my wife and son in law had the Filet Mignon and daughter had a strip, all were prepared perfectly, I usually have a strip but tried the stuffed flounder and would definitely do that again. We had planned on having the Bananas Foster but Peach Foster was a special and it was wonderful!
One of our all time fav spots to dine when we want something special. Their steaks are prime and the seafood select, fresh. We have enjoyed this restaurant for over 20 years. The food is always superb and the service is excellent.And, if you order the cherries jubilee or bananas foster, Rey makes it himself tableside. Try it, you'll like it
excellent ambiance....very professional and kind staff......food is delicious....it's nice having Rey check on all the tables....one of our favorite places in the Triangle.....we don't mind driving from North Raleigh to get such a great meal and experience.
A special night for me and my partner as we were celebrating our 2nd anniversary. Jason was our head server and he did a great job. Rey even stopped by to say hello. We really enjoyed this experience. The ambiance was very comfortable and even though the place was very busy, we never felt rushed and lacked for anything during dinner. The food was good - my only criticism would be that most everything was not seasoned enough for my taste. But, that is my taste. When I dashed a little S&P on it, the flavors were awesome. I think we will try Rey's again for a future special occasion.
Rey's is one of my favorite restaurants! The food is spectacular! I have never had a complaint. Rey is usually in the restaurant and generally comes by each table and speaks briefly with the diners.
Steaks in particular are fabulous. There are a good variety of sides available. They have a very good wine selection, as well as, a full bar with top shelf spirits. They specialize in martinis.
Our dinner was on a slow weeknight and our waiter visited too often, we wished to have a conversation alone because we have four little boys and we can't talk unless we pay to go somewhere else to talk :-) but whoever was tasked with refills did a wonderful job. The food was great, meal was paced very well and took two hours. Its not a quick in-and-out place. Moral between staff seemed very high and that extends to guests sense of comfort.
Always a five star experience. I wanted fish and our server recommended the grouper without hesitation. It was the best I've every had -- even in Florida. My wife had the chicken piccata and loved it. There was enough to take home for a light supper the next day. For dessert the chocolate truffle & raspberries was spectacular accompanied by a French Press coffee.
Another great night at Rey's! This is one of our favorite restaurants. This time, we dined with another couple and had a fabulous meal. It was the couple wife's first time there and she loved it. Sure, we could've gone to Ruth's Chris... but we have discovered that Rey's has the same quality of food with friendlier staff and a better atmosphere. It's not as stuffy. And the thing that sets Rey's apart from the Ruth's Chris's of the world is… Rey. It's so rare to dine at a restaurant where the owner makes a point of hitting every table and expressing his appreciation for your presence. He makes you feel like a million bucks. And that's nice… because it's not cheap to dine at a steakhouse. Rey let's you know that you're appreciated for spending your hard-earned money at his restaurant. Even if you're not in the mood or don't have the funds for a full sitdown dinner in the dining room, you can chill out in their bar area, split an entree and let Jeremy, the bartender, entertain you. And you can't beat Rey's cocktails – someone else said it best: there's drunk, and there's Rey's drunk. So prepare yourself!
The food here is excellently prepared and if was not when arriving to your table, the waiter without even flinching will take it back to the chef to have it remade to perfection and when he returns with it, he will have a smile on his face.
The personnel here really go out of their way to only please each and every guest.
I would highly recommend this dine-in restaurant to anyone that needs to be pampered a bit and wants to enjoy food cooked to perfection!
Promising exceptional service, with multiple people coming by to assure us we were being taken care of, we expected a lot better. Once the order was placed, the waitress forgot all about the glass of wine I had ordered, perhaps because I waited to order it at the same time as my food. The fish recommended was OK, the crabmeat on the side only lukewarm despite having been warned their plates were super hot. The bread was very tasty, and we would have asked for more if we had caught her attention once we started our meal. Our waitress was very pleasant but shared a couple of personal stories (to illustrate how good certain dishes were) that were just plain silly. When we chose a desert to share, she gracefully put it on the house!
So all in all a pleasant experience, but not exceptional.
This was the first time that we have been to Rey's, it was for my birthday dinner. It has three different delivery options, there is a bar, the vodoo lounge, the restaurant, and then a number of private rooms where there were private parties taking place. It is a mix of new orleans and a steakhouse, where the food is hot and all served a-la-carte. We had the turtle soup, the lamp chops, and the pork chops. All were very well prepared. For desert we had the bread pudding, which was really yummy and warm.
Two ordered chicken piccata and loved it. I had the crab cake appetizer and a salad. The crab cakes were 4 tiny bites--not what I'd expected. The salad was good, though. Jason, our waiter, provided fine service. We generally like the food here and will come back again.
Rey's never disappoints, the food is consistently high quality and the service is almost alwys excellent (we had one server *once* who did not do well). The food is New Orleans style, we always request a lighter touch with the butter and it works well for us that way.
If Jeremy is at the bar that night it will be a lively one! :)
