The dining experience is always pleasant. The server is attentive and professional. The river view from the dining room is spectacular. The food is constantly good. The valet service is reliable and fast. Everything is top notch and worth the money. I also love their Sunday Brunch Buffet!

I've been to hundreds of Sunday brunch buffets and they all pale by comparison to Ray's on the River. I spent a long weekend in Atlanta in 2007 when I first visited. Every Sunday morning to this day I wake up and wish Ray's was within driving distance for me. I'm so grateful to the hotel concierge that recommended this place.

The remodeling makes the building shine and tease you with great things to come. However, the intial service and waiter's spiel is way over done and the food did not live up to our hopeful expectations.

This is a great restaurant for a special occasion celebration. The food is excellent and the service is good. The location - on the Chattahoochee River - is beautiful. Not a good place for kids though.

When I have gone here, there is always a wait and the food and service are good. Price is reasonable for what you get and I think this would be a good place to take guests too if you are in the area, but I wouldn't make a special trip.

I went there for a business meeting and had the Mahi Mahi over dirty rice. It was fresh and perfectly grilled. The restaurant overlooks the Chattahoochee River and has a friendly atmosphere. The service was good. The prices are above average but worth it. This is a great place for a casual lunch or a nice evening date.

I have been there before and after the renovation. My experiences was always pleasant until recently (on 2 consecutive occasions) when the server seemed to favor the majority. Ray's on the River you are in the restaurant business, train your server and let them realized that they are serving all types of people regardless of their color or economic status....they need to understand that or else get a job somewhere that they don't have to deal with people!!! Only after I made the complaints to the manager that the whole service experience all of a sudden changed to a pleasant one. Too bad I even recommended the place to my friends and co-worker, now I have to tell them my horrible experiences.

I've been before and after the renovation, and haven't been thrilled either time, especially considering the price. Might be worth a try for a seafood lover, but there's better place in Atlanta for that.

Hello everyone! I took my wife and my daughter out to Ray's looking for the same service we got before but was upset my med. well 12oz. filet was served burnt and med. rare. Waited over 10 min. to get the waitress to the table had the filet reordered while my wives got cold as we waited for mine to be cooked again. Finally lynn our server brought it out it seemed to be cooked right but i believe they microwaved it because it was grainy like a sirloin. By then it was late they were closing and here comes lynn with desert we did not order and it was a praline strawberry desert which before this, we asked for a desert menu. We told her we did not want that. I over hear lynn g. tell her manager that she tried to give us the praline that was left over in the freezer but we declined and had cheesecake. Just horrible service and food we waited forever for drinks and everything still paid 55.00 for my filet, desert was free, wow 7.50 free for two hours of my time to eat for valentines day. I hope this review helps your decision on a nice evening with your significant other. Happy Valentines ladies!!!! Send to a Friend Link to This Review
