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.

A fantastic evening top to bottom! The food was spectacular, the wine pairing lovely and the service top notch. The pace of the meal was perfect- neither rushed nor dragging. A night to remember.

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.

The service was great. My kids love the sour dough bread and the butter so much. They think they are the best they ever had.

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.

Late evening reservation gone wrong. They had tried their best but we were delayed so much that we couldn’t recover and finish the meal. Staff were extremely apologetic. I will still give it one more opportunity.

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.

We loved the entire experience. Great atmosphere, exceptional food and extraordinary service! The seven course meal with the wine pairing was to die for, we savored every bite and drink. A little pricey but well worth it!

Expertly prepared food with a creative twist. The pastry chef is a genius - amazing, delectable, and uniquely creative desserts. It’s a higher end place and the atmosphere is a little reserved and stuffy but the food makes up for it.

For the price, we expected far more than things you learn to do in the first two years of a Culinary school. The menu was uninspired, half of which was bland and it was not the menu expected and no notice of a change was provided. The tomato salad was a delightful start and the tuna was cooked beautifully. The lamb tartare was a lovely surprise and well executed. For the price not worth the journey we made for Canada's number one restaurant. We spent $500.00 at The INN at Bay Fortune and were over the moon. We spent $185 at Raymonds on a split menu and we're deeply uninpressed. The service was impeccable, the servers themselves had a brilliant knowledge of the menu. The atmosphere was relaxing, however it is a restaurant and you go for the food which was disappointing.

We celebrated our daughter's 16th birthday and had a delightful evening. All 5 of us were thrilled with our meals and most importantly, the birthday girl is a vegetarian and she thoroughly enjoyed her meal too. The food is always outstanding and unusual. As well, our server was very attentive and made the night very special.

Very disappointed. We came for our 15th wedding anniversary and put that in our Open Table reservation. There was no acknowledge of it as we saw tables around us being presented with beautiful desserts celebrating their special occasion. Our server said she was new and she clearly was. She was very friendly but she couldn’t describe the courses to us because she said she forgot. My water glass sat empty more than once. Then a table with 3 small children sat down two tables over and the children were so loud and were allowed to run around the dining room. It was unbelievable. We paid over $300 hoping for a memorable dining experience and I wish I could get my money back and forget the whole thing.

The chef is a genius . The sommelier is brilliant at matching wines with the superb dishes. Service is elegant yet friendly. Atmosphere is classic. We made a special stopover in St John's on our way back to Ottawa from Dublin specifically to have dinner here and it was entirely worth it. Why this chef and restaurant doesn't have Michelin Star I just don't know. Thanks for a great evening!

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.
