“The Best in Atlanta!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

I have been to Ray's many times and have yet to have a bad meal. I have tried many different items on e menu and it just gets better each time. Though, I have to say, my favorite is the Shrimp and Grits! Dang good! Te Martinis are served in the shaker so you really get about 3 glasses full! Wonderful staff! Could never say enough about Ray's!

“Lots of very good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

There were seven of us and our reservation was ready when we walked in the door. We were seated quickly and the service from start to finish was outstanding. So many restaurants like Ray's are heavy on presentation and skimpy on the food... not at Ray's! the portions were generous and food was excellent. We took clients there and they are still talking about the dinner.

“kept going there again and again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

stayed in atlanta for one week, visited ray's three times. For people who like sushi and fish I think this is a great restaurant. anyway tried few restaurants while in Atlanta, Alma Cocina (quite good but mexican is not my thing), Fandangles (good), Ruth Chris (great and expensive), Ted (great burgers and fair prices), Ray (as I like fish was my preferred). The food was always good in old town, so just have a quick read in tripadvisor and choose your restaurant, i don't think you'll be disappointed.

“Atmosphere - Service Plus excellent food...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

My Birthday Lunch was "special" and treated like a queen at Ray's In The City. The original Ray's on the River was a favorite for years to entertain out of town business associates and we were never disappointed with the food or the service. This was my first dining experience at Ray's in the City and I was impressed and happy with the food and the service. Nice atmosphere and the server also made my Birthday lunch special — even got a Happy Birthday hug. Five stars! Highly recommend for locals as well as out of town visitors. You won't be disappointed
