Ray's on the River is certainly a case of getting what you pay for. This meal will absolutely set you back when it comes time for the bill, but in this instance, it's absolutely worth it - don't think this is the type of place to upcharge you in order to simulate the aura of fine dining, this is the...

Sunday brunch is always a treat but at Ray's on the River, it's almost surreal! Of course you need a reservation at least several days in advance. My wife & I were very pleasantly greeted. We arrived a little early and were seated only after a few moments wait. The table they first seated us at seemed like it would... More

We have dined at Ray's several times in the past but this experience was disappointing. We were dining with friends and our waiter explained the "fix priced menu" available for Valentines day, which included 2 price options. We decided to select one dinner from each option thus creating two different prices for our dinners but when out check was paid... More

Two other couples joined my husband and me for dinner the Sunday before Valentine's Day. My husband and I split the Artisan salad and it was tasty, although a little sparse. Our entrees for the group included: The Specialty crab cakes, salmon, and chicken. The crab cakes were very good, as was the salmon. Our friend, who decided on the... More

My wife and I have dined at Rays on the River a couple times a year for the last 10 years. Each and every time we have enjoyed fantastic food, wonderful service and atmosphere that is upscale and intimate. Appetizers, Salads, Entree's have all be some of the best we have had in Atlanta every time. Consistency has been the... More

On the Chattahoochee river the restaurant offers a marvelous and restful setting, day or night. Menu is plentiful and yummy using organic fresh ingredients.We were on a time schedule and told so to our most able waitress Lynne. A basket of diverse FRESH and crunchy breads arrived promptly. We ordered salmon Oscar and the river trout. My dish came on... More

Mediocre service. Overpriced. The quality of the bone in ribeye was not as good as other restaurant at similar price points and the seafood tower (for 4) was very disappointing

Treated a friend to cocktails and small plates in the bar. Had a great time. Our birthday friend loved it.
