Amazing view. Fab food. Way too pricey.
We came here for chow prior to a cultural evening and walked away with $100 for 4 people, no alcohol. Yikes.

Great view, great conversation, great food and pretty good service. We were a party of four at lunch time and it was busy but worth it.

The best thing about this place is the location because the food is average, in my opinion. I highly recommend happy hour in the summer and if you get there early enough you might be one of the few lucky people who get to seat on the deck. I have been at Ray's countless times, with friends, on a date and for business lunches. The place is, generally speaking, very welcoming, the hosts are always very efficient no matter how busy it gets and the prices are reasonable considering the surrounding. However I have always seen pretty much the same dishes on the menu. Their specialty is, obviously, fish, bu the menu could benefit from a little more inventiveness. The parking lot attendants are also very efficient when the place gets overwhelmingly packed especially in the summer, and the lot itself is very convenient considering that there wouldn't be much parking on the street otherwise. All in all a good local restaurant.

Ray's is our favorite restaurant in Seattle. The service is impeccable. The food is prepared perfectly and the presentation superb.
They have a Thai Chili sauce on their muscles that is nectar from Poseidon.
