We had the 7 course tasting and wine pairing and once again we were delighted! Very happy palates! The service is 5 star. An amazingly pleasant evening. The chef continues to amaze us with his creations.

Fine dining for sure. The food was excellent. The service was excellent. Great time with friends. Nice atmosphere. A bit on the pricey side so be prepared to spend a few bucks.

While not somewhere I would want to frequent, Raymond's is, without a doubt, a fabulous experience. The service was atop notch the wine selection extensive, and their advice on choice of wine was great. We did the seven course sampler, which seemed like a great deal of food, but spread out over the evening it was quite enjoyable and each... More

Very good wine list and wonderful Pairing Menus are highlighted at Raymond's. This is a full evening out, the meal will take 2 to 3 hours and is a very enjoyable way to spend your time with friends. The service is fabulous. Highly recommended!

Had dinner again at Raymond's while in St. John's. God it is the best! Fantastic food, and the service is impeccably kind as well as knowledgeable. Special nods go to Ellen behind the bar and Jeffrey, part owner and sommelier. You so helped my visit so much nicer. Will definitely be going back for their tasting menu the next time... More

Incredible service, great wines, a first rate sommelier and first and foremost, decadent delicious food. A great choice for that budget blowing special occasion dinner or for anyone who appreciates good service and adventures in fine dining. I was impressed by the good quality ingredients used (quite a lot are local). There were a few highlights - a whipped fois... More

As an avid foodie I was quite eager to visit this restaurant that en Route had named "Best New". I was not disappointed. The service is thoughtful, the food sublime, and you leave feeling you have been more than "just fed". Were it not for the accents, I would have thought I was in a fine dining establishment in a...

We have been stranded in St John's for quite some time now, so have sampled many of the restaurants. We have been delighted with the quality. Several have been excellent, with innovative food and great service. Raymond's was in a different class. From the moment we arrived and were helped with our coats, we were treated as very important guests.... More
