Rey's Ratings and Reviews

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!

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.

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.

We went for Restaurant Week. It was very crowded but the Restaurant managed the crowd well;
service was timely and courteous,we didn't feel rushed yet the tables were turned very efficiently. food was very good--overall a very pleasant experience!
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.
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.
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.
