So a group of us decided to have dinner at the renowned Raymonds in St. John’s. We were not disappointed. We opted for the three course menu (vs 5 or 7) with the wine pairings. The scallops (raw) were outstanding! I love scallops but never...More

One of the best meals I've ever had. Seven course tasting menu paired with wine. The service was outstanding, both the waiter and the sommelier. Food impeccable. What a treat.

This is a beautiful restaurant but the food is a huge disappointment. We had the seven course tasking menu and it was less than average. The selections of wine by the glass were shockingly poor and their so-called sommelier didn't seem to know what she...More

Description
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.
