I took my wife here for our anniversary. The food was great and Mr. Rey was always walking around interacting with the customers. Not many restaurant owners do that. He even made the banana's foster for the table next to us.

Great food for a special occasion. Was disappointed that they did not put any attention to my wife's birthday (the special occasion) . maybe they were to busy since it was also New Years Eve,
All in all a bit pricey for what we got.
8 out of 10.

We've gone to the typical higher end steak/American food places in Raleigh (Angus Barn, Ruths C, Second Empire, and decided to try Rey's last night for New Years. To summarize , it was a great meal...super service, quiet dining room, excellent food and everything on time. It's easy to tell that service is of key importance at Rey's. There's a constant flow of wait staff observing (but not interrupting) the progress of the meal at all times. Very impressive.
The only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 for food, is that my Med Filet Mignon was actually medium rare to rare. Given the disruption that returning an item has on a meal for two, I went with it, but it was certainly not my order.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the evening, and will certainly be back... both for an evening out as well as for business guests.

Great meal!! We had the bone-in ribeye, lobster mac and cheese, sautéed mushrooms and cream corn and loved all of it! Had the bread pudding for dessert which was just ok (will try different dessert next time). Service was also great and was impressed that owner Rey was visible and very involved including seating, greeting diners and preparing the occasional table side dessert.

The ambiance at Rey's is wonderful. That being said, I felt our New Year's dinner was good, but the brusque manner of our server was off-putting, the food is delicious, but the presentation on the small plates needs an update. With the prices, ($27.00 for about a 5 0z. serving of salmon, which was served with nothing, other than the sauce) I feel it would seem behoove Rey's to figure out a way to make this look a little more appealing. That being said, the sides are shareable and do allow you to customize your dinner. It also allows Rey's to charge $8.00 for a bit of sauteed spinach.
However, had our service been as gracious as one would hope, I would not complain. But this is our second visit where our server has been not of the caliber one would expect at such a lovely restaurant. The young man who waited on us this time was extremely brusque to the point of rudeness. I only knew there were Chef's special features, after overhearing another waiter offer them at the next table, after we had ordered. It is possible that it was just his speech pattern, but it was pretty disconcerting to be spoken to in such a rapid, abrupt manner during any interaction.
We really love the ambiance at Rey's, but I believe this will be our last time there.

This was second and last time dining at Rey's. The food was average at most. The few things that were turn offs were the horrible bread that is the obligatory "bread basket", and wasn't more than a large crouton. The broccoli side was nothing more than over steamed florets with zero seasoning. While cooked properly, the last lamb was underwhelming and nothing special. The service attempt was admirable, but there is a huge disconnect between the server and kitchen as all three menu modifications were missed. On a positive note: my husband's steak was deliscious and the wines by the glass are pretty good. Rey's needs to step it up considering the quality of steakhouses that are close by. We were very disappointed in our casual stop in, for a $200 meal.

We were in town visiting family and wanted a good place for a conversation and good food. The variety on the menu allowed us all to get something we wanted and the gumbo helped fulfill my taste for something a little spicy and it was very good. Everything think we ordered was great and the service was great too.

As usual, Jason provided outstanding service. He is worth whatever he is paid and one of the many reason we return. The food was outstanding especially the chicken picatta which received great reviews from our first time guest. Finally, the banana's fosters even without Rey preparing continues to be the highlight for my wife.

Disappointing experience... steak was sent back to kitchen two times because it was overcooked, well-done when ordered rare. I was hoping for a nice dinner with my wife. Instead we both ate at our dinners at opposite times. Only two other tables with guests in the restaurant. Excellent waitress, but an overpriced meal that did not meet or exceed expectations. Next time I plan to head directly to Bin 54!

I just love this place! Great food - great service - the staff is awesome - always eager to assist and ready with the next drink or offer whatever - great customer service - never leaving you waving for waiter or bartender - Will continue to come back with clients, friends and family.

From the moment you walk in you feel like a movie star. The door is open for you, your coats are put in the coat room, there is a group of waiter/waitresses to help you. Very knowledgeable about the menu, the owner Me Rey hues to every table and is very interested in everything you want to say. We were not rushed every course of the meal was set perfectly and will wait for you to be fine. The good was exquisite. We were there for almost three hours enjoying every second. Ohhh the valet was very thoughtful made sure the care inside was warm. It was a very cold night in the high 20s. It is expensive but is worth it. We already made plans to go back next month.

Were seated 50 minutes after our reservation. They also seated 3 tables minutes apart on our waiter so it took awhile to get drinks. Waiter was good and knew we were tired and hungry. Food was good and server quickly, but it was 9.45.

This was my first; but certainly not last, visit to Rey's. I made reservation and upon arrival was immediately ushered to my table. Jason; our waiter, was one of the highlights and blessings of the evenings, followed by a array of food that was extremely satisfying.
It was the best birthday dining experience that I've had since moving to the area in August 2005 and I will be making it my prime choice for fine dining.
