Living in Newfoundland and Labrador, we’re blessed in having access to some of the best seafood, meat, and produce in the world. Having such a bountiful larder right on our doorsteps means we’re able to adopt a truly sustainable approach to fine dining – sourcing locally-grown ingredients and getting to know independent purveyors. We've made every effort to make dining at Raymonds a unique and rare treat. Visit us at 95 Water Street in the heart of downtown St. John’s. Our dinner menu, prepared by head chef Jeremy Charles, is inspired by rustic Atlantic Canadian cuisine. It features authentic dishes that take advantage of Newfoundland and Labrador’s rich variety of seafood, wild game, berries and vegetables, while also exploring innovative, 'haute cuisine' ingredient combinations and finishes.

This was a standout meal. We went with the five service option and each service topped the previous service which was very hard to do. The decor and heritage building are spectacular as was the service which was like watching a well choreographed ballet! We will be back for sure. Don't miss this when you are next in St. John's.

Fabulous dining experience! The sauces paired with each course were carefully thought out. The homemade butter was beyond words. Incroyable.

The food was absolutely amazing and lived up to, even surpassed my expectations. My foodie BFF and I had decided Raymond's would be the perfect restaurant for our get away weekend. We chose the 5 course tasting menu with the wine pairings. Every single bite had a beautiful balance of flavor and texture. The wines selected were unique and paired beautifully with the meal and the service was par excellence. The teamwork amongst the staff and the attention to detail only added to the experience. This restaurant could easily be uptight and stuffy but the staff are welcoming and the passion for their jobs shines through in everything they do.
If you are in St john's it is a restaurant you cannot miss.

Came to this restaurant for a very special occasion and all of my expectations were met with ease. All of the dining options were presented very well and any questions were answered with honesty and thoughtfulness. All the courses were very well done and an experience to enjoy. I will recommend this restaurant to anyone I know and will be sure to make it a regular option when I return to Newfoundland.

Raymond’s stood out for extremely attentive, efficient, and knowledgeable wait staff and a focus on local ingredients and subtle, yet complex, flavours. The wine pairing suggestions by the sommelier were very complimentary to the food we ordered. Highly recommend dining at Raymond’s when in St. John’s.

Disappointing.


This was my fourth time at Raymond’s and it did not live up to my prior experiences. The timing of the 5 course meal was very ‘off’ and our server was always in rush-mode which did not help. The intention was to impress my business colleagues, sadly they were decidedly unimpressed.

We all had the 7 course tasting menu. My mom, aunt and uncle are in their 70’s and it was their first time having a tasting/pairing menu so I was a little concerned they wouldn’t get it, but they were over the moon, loved it!

Although a little unfocused when checking in, the entire experience was otherwise exceptional. Table service, thoughtfulness, presentation of exceptionally well prepared and exquisitely tasting dishes. Setting in an apparently historical building with views of a working harbour. Strong recommendation to visit.

Our first experience at Raymond’s certainly did not disappoint. Everything we had was incredibly thought out and well done. I have a lot of food allergies and they were very accommodating. The food was locally sourced and there was a real pride in showcasing the flavors of Newfoundland. No wonder why Raymond’s is consistently in the top list of best restaurants in Canada.

The food was delicious. Every flavour amazing. But we are from out of town and we had done lots of hiking and worked up quite an appetite. The portions on the 7 course tasting menu were quite small. Even for a tasting menu they were small. But every morsel was delicious.

This was my 5th time at Raymonds - we had the 7 course tasting menu. The portions were extremely small this time, and overall lacked creativity. The presentation was also lacking. For the price we paid, we should not have left hungry and we were not wowed by the food.

However, the service is ALWAYS spectacular and the ambiance is always great.

Sadly, the quality has been declining in recent visits. Hard to justify $135 pp - I am more than willing to pay for great quality food if it’s worth the price and I leave full.

Accueil très chaleureux, bonne cuisine avec une bonne dégustation des entrées et des plats, mais les desserts ne sont pas à la hauteur du reste du menu. Bien que dans l’ensemble il s’agit d’un très bon restaurant, les prix sont élevés.

Unpretentious service yet first level as you would expect in a top level restaurant. Great attention to details and wine list that would not overwhelm you but obviously chosen by an expert wine sommelier.

Pappardelli with Moose ragu is perfection and better than many signature dishes in top 50 world restaurants ( and I am talking from experience).

A jewel in a city that feels rather small and isolated for a restaurant of this caliper.

I was given a Raymond's card as a farewell gift from my former co-workers. I thought Raymond's was far too luxurious for my husband and I to even think about going, so we never even tried to book a table. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the prices were equivalent to other establishments in St. John's. What was outstanding was the food and the warm and welcoming atmosphere. This is a luxury that we can afford to treat ourselves too.
