This restaurant is truly an Atlanta landmark. It is amazing to believe it has been in continuous operation for over 30 years.The quality of food and service just continue to increase. We had a variety of foods all which were excellent. The service as always is top notch. Thank you Ray for keeping this Atlanta icon polished and wonderful.

This is our second visit to Ray's on the River as we travel from Wisconsin to Florida. We love the venue and the views from the River are breathtaking. They have a nice wine selection! This is a simple thing but their bread basket is to die for! Our meals were tasty and the wait staff was friendly. Our only... More

This was very pricey but if you come here it's to make a statement, and it will be loud and clear, the river was lit up for an evening stroll and park benches along the way. If you can't close a deal here maybe it wasn't a deal in the beginning lol This is a must do

Had family tickets to Nutcracker at the Fox followed by dinner reservations at Ray's: not the first time to either venue. Arrived at Ray's a few minutes late, but promptly and politely accommodated and seated; unaware of a shift change we waited more than twenty minutes for a server/wait staff acknowledgement at the table, so one family member went to...

We have just had a great meal. Sea bass & prime rib were the main courses, both excellent. Wonderful preparation & seasoning on the sea bass. Had really nice lobster bisque & wife had a very tasty field greens salad. Dessert wonderful - praline basket filled with ice cream, candied nuts & fruit, an awesome finish to a great meal.... More

We celebrated the holiday this past weekend with a large group and I was looking forward to eating at this establishment because I had always heard good things about it. The setting is very pretty and the service excellent. I ordered the salmon entree and while it was "good" it wasn't swoon worthy at $36. Also, the gal next to... More

My husband and I ate here for the first time and we enjoyed it. The environment was very nice (we were here on a date) and the food was delicious. Service could've been a little bit better, but overall it was a great experience.

We were celebrating a promotion and we decided on doing it at Ray's. As usual we had excellent service and the food was impeccable. I had the broiled seafood platter and I swear it's the best seafood platter in the business! Always classy always excellent!
