Raymonds Ratings and Reviews
For an original experience; this is a must stop when visiting St John's NFLD! The menu is course based...you can go with a 3; 4...or a 7 course...basically extended variations of the 3 course meal...which is not a negative > we prefer a shorter menu...usually ensures a better end product. This was certainly the case at Raymonds!!...the food was awesome! We chose the 3 course & wine pairing option...fantastic experience. Service was a bit off the night we visited...a few mistakes but overall we really enjoyed and would recommend.
Excellent service and amazing food. The 5 course wine pairing is the way to go unless you get the 7! Jeremy Charles and Bona have done all of the right things.
Absolutely fabulous! All the praise they have been receiving are spot on.
Raymond's was a wonderful dining experience. The food and ambience were first rate. Service was very good and it would be a memorable night for anyone who chooses this location
Raymonds lives up to all my expectations....except one. It was very dear for the tasting menu. I get that tasting menus are where it is at, but some of the portions were so small. Other than the amazing tuna, I cannot remember a single other morsel of food. I am sure that is not what you intended. We were 4 adults with one bottle of wine, 4 pre-dinner drinks and 4 tasting menu 5 and our bill was over $900. that is nuts. Very nice but way too expensive for the value.
The staff are incredibly friendly and professional and are lead by the incomparable Kim who was warm, smart, informed, enthusiastic and treated us like old friends. The food...fabulous; all 5 courses.
The ambience and service were exceptional. The food was delicious and wonderfully plated. The portion sizes in the tasting menu were minuscule. Literally a single bite of blue fin tuna and a pork medallion the size of a toonie.
The service and ambiance is excellent. The quality of the food, the flavours and the wine pairing was the best we have had . Ive eaten all over the world in some very special places. Whoever eats at Raymonds will leave with a memorable dining experience.
We even realized we were eating so slowly to explore and savour tge unique flavours.
The staff were very informed about the meals and ingredients. Even the butter was made there.
I made the reservation for 6 @ least 2 mos. ahead so we had some while to anticipate the dinner. It more than met our expectations & was a dining experience rather than just being out for dinner.
The food is innovative without being pretentious. Service is friendly and professional. Overall, a great dining experience. Really worth a stop when in St. John's
The service was spectacular. The cod and halibut entrees were superb. The tuna appetizer was surprisingly subpar as the tuna was overwhelmed by the vegetables and sauce. Desserts are out of this world and small enough that they can be enjoyed without calorie regret.
Absolutely amazing meal. Nothing else needs to be said. If you've never been, you need to go.
After reading that is was one of the finest restaurants in Canada, we went there with high expectations. We were not disappointed. Excellent, creative food with charming, warm service. We would return to St Johns just to eat there again. Truly wonderful
I had the best meal in my life at Raymond's. The tasting menu was creative, well-balanced and utterly divine. I'm generally quite picky, but there was not a wrong note in the entire feast. I particularly enjoyed the seasonal and local ingredients, and my sister-in-law really appreciated the gluten-free alternatives. The sommelier's selections for the wine flight perfectly paired with the tasting menu, and I liked the combination of excellent Canadian and international wines. The staff were attentive and helpful, and the venue was elegant and enchanting, with a spectacular view of the forested side of St. John's harbour. I had wanted to dine at Raymond's for 7 years, since I was unable to during my first visit to St. John's, and it was truly worth the wait - an exquisite meal and lovely evening.
Greeted warmly upon arrival. Food was good but not exceptional given the price point. Service was a bit stiff. The dining room had a banquet hall feel rather than a fine dining ambience. The cod was perfectly prepared but the halibut was overdone. Whiskey as the "wine" pairing for dessert was an odd choice.
After all the rave reviews and press I was excited to try this restaurant. Service was excellent, room was formal without being stuffy. I had the 7 course tasting menu. The food overall was very good. However for this calibre of restaurant I was looking for perfection with how things were cooked. Halibut was very dry and cod skin was burnt. The other dishes were very good and inventive. I would recommend this restaurant.
The meal, the 5 course menu with wine pairings was spectacular!
A thoroughly enjoyable dinner. Wonderful and accommodating staff! Nice view over the harbour early evening, and a relaxing atmosphere. An upscale experience without any stuffiness or pretentiousness. The meal was very good, with a couple of outstanding elements. Great bartender too.
Extraordinary! Friends had been previously, and said it was not to be missed when in Saint John's. Each exceptional course was paired with wine perfectly by Kim, Raymond's sommelier, with just enough information to inform and entertain. Mitchell's service perfect. Great experience. Raymond's is in the same league as any of the Michelin-starred restaurants I've visited in France.
Impeccable service. Everything we ate was procured locally, so it was all super fresh and at its peak. Raymonds continues to maintain its reputation as a world class establishment. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our experience there.
Raymond's deserves its reputation as one of the very best restaurants in North America.
We had the 7 course Chefs Menue with the wine pairing. Everything fit together superbly. Service was impeccable. The dinner was built around local ingredients currently available.
This is an experience not to be rushed. Take the time to savor every bite, every sip.
We had the 7 course meal with wine pairings and it was delightful! I also added on oysters which were fantastic.
Complete meal service and each dish was better than the last. Top notch.
Really excellent fine dining experience. Great and patient staff. Excellent food and wine.
The service was outstanding. Dillon was our serve and he was great. Attentive. Food was extremely tasty and touched the senses. An enjoyable 3.5 hours.
The service was impeccable, the setting was formal yet warm and inviting, and the food outstanding. We particularly liked the emphasis on local ingredients and the wine pairings that were available. It was a lovely place to celebrate a wedding anniversary and the end of a spectacular two week Newfoundland vacation.
One of the best meals I have ever had! The complexity of the flavors and the attention to detail are incredible. I love that they forage for herbs that are native to Newfoundland and incorporate them into almost every dish. You can truly feel the chef's passion. My waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable. Overall it was an incredible dining experience and one of the highlights of my trip.
Amazing meal. We were in St. John's for vacation, but would build a trip around a meal there!
Excellent food, plenty of it, and could not ask for better service. A wonderful treat as part of our visit to Newfoundland.
Visited Saint John's to try the restaurant. Food was very strong, some repetition in terms of ingredients but the presentation was compelling and the quality if ingredients was excellent. In terms of michelin stars it is a strong 1 star. The service was good without being incredible, slightly more attentive staff would be my only recommendation. On the whole, worth the trip to the island, I would recommend.
Raymond's almost never disappoints. My wife and I have had our anniversary dinner at Raymond's (and the two Jeremy's predecessor, Atlantica) for more than ten years. The food seems to get better every year which we find quite astonishing, given the very high level at which it started. We have eaten all over the world and Raymond's is, unequivocally, our favourite restaurant anywhere.
The food and the wine pairing were amazing. We loved our Raymond's experience.
amazing time for all - staff was amazing - highlight of our trip
G&T w local maritime gin and "Third Place" tonic - exceptional.
Oysters - excellent! Do try them.
Had one of my best friends visiting from the UK. Her and I wanted to have and beautiful meal where we were served, someone else cooked and we were not responsible for the actions of our kids haha. We had an exceptional meal at Raymond's. When we were seated I was placed at a table had I sat in on another occasion, I asked if we could move to a window seat and it was no trouble. About 30 minutes into our meal I noticed we were seated next to Blue Rodeo. That was a pleasant surprise and we did not ask for pictures. The best part of our evening was the service. The food was fantastic as usual but having a great service is what makes the experience exceptional. Thanks again!!
Only negative comment was that the length between courses was too long. We were there for a total of 4 and a half hours for the 7 course meal.
Service impeccable, présentations soignées, recherche des saveurs et des textures, sommelière passionnée, allergies traitées avec sérieux. Une soirée mémorable.
The restaurant where meals cost a minimum of $80 per person needs a dress code so guys wearing only t-shirts should not be allowed!
We went to Raymond's to celebrate my birthday while traveling from Miami. We had dined at Raymond's a couple years earlier and were blown away by the tasting menu and its homage to Newfoundland. Honestly, this time it was just okay. We did the full tasting menu with wine and each of the presentations were rushed and without much fanfare. Not at all what we expected and a bit disappointing. We had dined a couple nights earlier and Merchant Tavern and thought it was amazing and believed Raymond's would be even better. The food is on par with fine dining but honestly, for what you pay, they need to up their game in the service department.
