Spectacular Celebration

Our event in the Northwest Room to celebrate my husband was absolutely spectacular. Every guest raved about how wonderful the food was. The vegan tempura vegetables were a particular hit, especially with the kids! I really appreciate how you set up the appetizers for vegans, vegetarians, and meat/seafood eaters. One of our guests was gluten-free so I doubly appreciate the menus clearly showing the gluten-free options.

The staff was friendly and efficient. The decor was so tasteful and beautiful. And, while this was out of your control, we couldn't have asked for more beautiful weather. Herons and seals made frequent appearances. The entire ambiance was perfect.

Wonderful Party!

I just wanted to thank Hannah and the Ray's staff for helping us host a wonderful party. The food was great and the service allowed things to flow so smoothly. Friends and family are telling us how much they enjoyed it. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Fantastic Venue!

We have held many work events at Ray's and they have all been amazing. There are so many delicious food options and a view to die for! The venue is beautiful. Their coordinator goes above and beyond to communicate through the event date and put your plan into action. All of the staff that we have interacted with are very nice and accommodating. We cannot say enough good things about Ray's and will continue to host events there!

End of Life Celebration

Our event was absolutely perfect.  The food was excellent, the room was set up perfectly, and it was as if you had ordered the sunset to compliment the event. All the guests enjoyed themselves and the dinner was something that my mom would have approved of if she had been with us.

You gave us a wonderful backdrop for the celebration of life, and we are so thankful for it. My parents used to come to your restaurant for dinner before they went dancing, so it holds special memories for them. Thank you again for the excellent service and food.
