We went out to celebrate with friends and had a great time. Service was excellent . Our waiter made excellent suggestions. The calamari was cooked perfectly and seasoned to perfection. I think it was the best that I have ever had. Scallops, crab cakes and trout were all delicious. The key lime pie was also very good. Nice and creamy.... More

We visited here for lunch a few times and were pleasantly surprised by the nice views of the chattahoochee river and the decor inside (note: business casual dress code required). The menu offered a good variety of American fare options, and the seafood (salmon, trout) we had was simply done but delicious and surprisingly not too expensive (~$14) for such... More

My husband and I went here on Sunday night, Thanksgiving weekend. Service was TERRIFIC, with two servers looking after us. The intimate lighting made our table feel more private, even though it was a little difficult to see the menu. We had the calamari appetizer, which was probably the best calamari I have ever had. I had the Gulf Shrimp... More

We went here on a team dinner. The food is great and so are the drinks. They have a great collection of port and dessert wines. Loved them! Great location by the Chattahoochee! Possibly overpriced, but definitely brilliant!

We finally visited Ray's on the River after hearing about it for years. It was fantastic! The service and ambiance were wonderful, and we absolutely loved our meals. Two of us had prime rib and two ordered the filet. Outstanding. Plus the Caesar and wedge salads were amazing as well. Highly recommend and we look forward to a return visit.

Started out with a double cold tower due to the large appetites we had. It was totally amazing and highly recommended. Then came the greens salad with the house dressing that was so good! Then came my entree which I had chosen the blackened grouper, which I highly recommend you try if you love fish like me!

Four of us celebrated a birthday here. In the reservation we asked for a nice table due to the celebration and they responded beautifully. We had a lovely table with an excellent view. The birthday person was immediately acknowledged with table glitter. At the conclusion of the meal there was a special birthday dessert. Service was excellent. The food was... More

We did enjoy the view, and the shrimp cocktail (pictured). However, the prime rib, potatoes Lyonnaise, and creamed spinach were average. Also the main waiter for our table needed a bit more training. Honestly, do waiters think it's appropriate to make snarky comments when you don't eat enough of their food?

This is the best American fine dining place in Atlanta. Impeccable service. Complimentary valet parking. Gorgeous bar, beautiful view of the 'Hooch, and great people watching. And the food is outstanding, with something different every time. This is an expensive restaurant, and for a good reason -- it's worth it. The only draw back is that it is always loud,... More
