5 part tasting menu with wine pairing was definitely a good choice.Everything served was exceptional, and the wine was perfect with each dish. Service was spot on, with staff being friendly, but not overly so.They were present and attentive,and the pace of the meal was just right. Our server Andrew gets A+ :)

We were celebrating our daughter's graduation. This was the perfect place for such a special occasion.
Our waiter, Martin made us feel at home from the moment we sat down. He was very knowledgeable about all the questions we had read the menu.
Great evening, warm and wonderful ambiance. Can't wait for the next excuse to return.

Honestly the experience was every bit as wonderful as the food...servers were 100% and the sommelier was fabulous!! It isn't a place that you would pop out for a bite, but certainly an occasion place.
Will definitely be back..
Kudos to all!!

extremely over priced for portion sizes, I know fine dining is presentation and portions
I usually order an apetizer and main course (never disappointed yet) decided to try the taste menu, big disappointent
we asked prior too if there was moose on the tasteing menu, we know its suppose to be some what of a surprise, we were told no moose, great first thing out was smoked moose heart ( other items) as an appetizer so we didnt eat it
the remainder was very small portions of pasta dish and a cube of pork, when the desert came it was a bowl of blue berries with a tea spoon of some sort of ice cream sitting on a loonie size (just as thin) piece of cake
135 per person is quite a tad over priced we stopped and picked up take out on the way home no joke with drinks was a 400 dollar night and gratuity
wont be back will stick with fifth ticket or fish exchange

The best part of our evening was that the wait staff were professional , courteous and knowledgable. Our order was a little wrong as our oysters had been forgotten between our app and main course. But the waiter recognized the mistake and was quick to apologize and more importantly fix the error right away without question. Our wine pairing person knew her wine and was willing to discuss such. The food was good , but our main was not up to par for the price. Our bill came to 350$ with tip. The over all experience was good , wait staff, service the little Happy Anniversay written in chocolate on our plates was enough for me to pass along a compliment to management ( for Mitchell )as we left. But value for price for the food was a little high 7.5/10

A wonderful anniversary experience ,Service was exceptional, the 5 course menu was a delicious selection, even the cods tongue was better than I anticipated . The wine pairing was very suitable to each selection that was prepared. our request for special consideration re food intolerances was handled exceptionally well. We will return and bring friends. There is good reasons for your top 10 rating .Thank you for making our day very special .

Way too formal and completely lacking in warmth and energy - could not wait to get out.
Clipped wait staff rushing around does not impress - esp when they forget to pour the wine - and pour still water in our sparkling water glasses. The cooking was average - and not worth the cost.
The Merchant Tavern is way superior - in atmosphere/warmth/cooking/service.

Excellent dinner. We were s group of three. Almost everything was spot on. The only minor hiccup was the starter braised rabbit tagliatelle (it was not as flavourful as the rest of our dishes). The service was impeccable. Definitely worthy of its reputation. I first met Jeremy at the first chef congress at Eigensinn farm. He's definitely one of the best in the country and a great guy.
Thanks for a memorable meal.

An amazing dining experience. We had the 5 course tasting menu paired with the wines, the food was superb and the service was excellent. It was not just a meal it was an experience, and we really enjoyed ourselves.

we were a party of 8. the food was impeccable, as was the service. our sommelier needed to be flagged down numerous times to give us even the name and varietal of the wine pairing. she seemed quite distracted. our wine service overall was disappointing in terms of both our need to literally request explanations of what we were served and the ~1oz servings we recieved. at nearly $250 per person (with tip) i would have expected much better.
hats off to the chef though. a delicious meal.

What a wonderful experience to eat at Raymonds. The food was not only delicious but so very interesting. We had the 5 course taster menu and the wine pairing. Everything was fabulous and the service was attentive yet subtle. Tom was a wonderful server and he is a great barista!

Beautiful building, location, dining room and view, chair seats a bit too soft and made one feel seated too low at table. They did not pull out your chair to seat you nor place your napkin on your lap. We felt a bit rushed. Good service and knowledgeable staff on all levels especially the french sommelier. We had the table d'hote with good choices but not enough seafood on the menu for Nfld surprisingly ( late August 2016). Especially enjoyed the stuffed pasta appetizer and amuse bouche not so much the pureed corn with the beef tenderloin, tasted too much like can creamed corn although it wasnt of course. My husband did not enjoy his dessert choice of Milk (sorbet with crumble).
With that being said we would give Raymonds a 4 1/2 stars overall and definately recommend it to our friends. :)

Lovely building and room in a great part of St. John's. Food was fantastic and wine pairings were spot on. The only thing I would recommend is that the servers describe the meal a little when they bring it to the table. In my experience they tended to just lay it in front of you and walk away. I don't remember every detail from the menu so a little description would have been nice. Also, a little explanation for the wine pairing and why a certain wine was chosen would go a long way. Other than that, it was fantastic.

Raymonds is a fantastic restaurant! The food is creative and beautifully plated, as well as being delicious! The staff is attentive, informative, makes you feel special, but is not overbearing or "hovering". The wine pairings are perfect with each dish! It is a big, airy room that is well light, and you never feel crowded. It is expensive, but it is so worth it! Save up, wait for a special occasion, and have a wonderful meal and time at Raymonds!
