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.

Raymonds Ratings and Reviews

I congratulate you on doing an excellent job at Raymonds & the public will never be disappointed with the food or service.
If I may make one suggestion..... I believe the price of alcoholic beverages are overpriced for the easily obtained/NLC products..... I appreciate that all businesses' need to make a profit, however, I believe the prices should be a little more reasonable for the beer, spirits, & wine.
Thank you for an excellent dining experience & promoting NL.

This was a wonderful experience. I was on my own when I had dinner at Raymond's -- a situation that often gives one a deeper insight into a restaurant than normal. The food was wonderfully interesting and good -- the braised rabbit being especially memorable. I was however particularly fascinated to observe the professionalism of the wait staff. It was so impressive to watch the service at a large table where there was a party of fourteen people. As each course was ready, a platoon of seven waiters and waitresses streamed out of the kitchen, moving as a unit, each one carrying two plates of dinner to the table. As a result everyone in that party was served simultaneously: impressive, almost military precision!

Our Raymonds experience was simply exceptional. Our server was very well informed and went out of his way to answer questions and provide a quality dining experience. The food is superb. When you order, you have an idea of what's to come and you assume it will be very good. When the plate arrives, the creativity on the plate, the flavor profiles, and the commitment to local ingredients take your eating pleasure to a whole new level. The portion sizes are not excessive which allows you to enjoy several courses, from 3-7, depending on your appetite. In St. John's, it is definitely a dining experience you cannot find elsewhere.

I have eaten in many high end restaurants throughout North America and Europe. This is if not the best then a tie for it with another in provence France. The service is excellent. The attention to local ingredients is phenomenal. The cost though high is very reasonable for the quality of food and service. This restaurant makes me proud of Newfoundland and what it has to offer on the world stage.

Really great experience! The tasting menu was awesome - such a variety of food! Everything was delicious, our waitress was friendly. Went into the bar for a drink after and the bartender did an awesome job at making different cocktails for us.

We have dined at Raymonds every year since the restaurant opened to celebrate our anniversary, and we still find the experience exhilarating. Yes, it is costlier than other restaurants in St. John's but we think it is worth it. Service has always been impeccable and the tasting menu with wine pairing is what we order most times. I guess we enjoy not knowing what will be served for each course. Creative combinations of food and over the top flavours. I've seen some reviews that state the serving sizes at Raymonds is small. However, I find that the food is so flavorful that there is no sense of leaving the restaurant feeling underfed. The brain obviously interprets 'big flavour' as a means of controlling appetite. In short, we were delighted to dine at Raymonds this past weekend, and we'll be back next year.

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
