Amazing food and service. Awesome atmosphere. Portion sizes are small though so go with multiple courses. Expensive but worth the experience.

Went to this establishment expecting a pleasant finely dining experience. The food quality and presentation were far less than one would expect from a restaurant of this caliber. The whole experience was a big disappointment and I would not recommend it to anyone. The prices were exorbitant for the quality.

This restaurant has class in every aspect of its functions But be prepared to pay Food is exceptional and mostly from local produce and meat Wines are spectacular and the 5 and 7 wine pairings is exquisite. Certainly this is not for frequent visits but is great for special events ENJOY

Rated the #1 restaurant in St. John's and definitely worth the rating. Service was impeccable, decor was pleasant (although a little more intimacy between tables would be nice). Went with the set menu (not the tasting) and the courses were very good. A bit pricey overall but the service lends to that. Only criticism would be the steak was not... More

I have been to some places where I am made to feel like a second class citizens. NOT at Raymond's!! A big plus to me and... More

We had a very memorable evening with friends. The room is elegant. The tables are very well spaced apart. The service was exemplary. Everything about the food - presentation, textures, flavours- was excellent. Astounding.

The service was too much at times .We were asked at least five times if we had allergies but had to ask for extra bread I ordered the Lamb and it was basically raw.I didn't like it but the pasta and scallops was...

Food was good, tho portions were relatively small and the price was high. The service was perfect. Impressive even. Restaurant itself is very beautiful. Shirt and tie for sure. you will feel out of place in jeans and a T-shirt here. Great spot for a very special occasion or if you were looking to go above and beyond. I would... More
