    Raymi it's a great combination of outstanding food, great service and a perfect Manhattan location. It's menu has a great variety of foods with healthy choices like their amazing ceviche and traditional Peruvian dishes like lomo saltado. During my visit I started with their just perfect and yummy anticucho a mixed ceviches and we also had some if their cheese and corn empanadas. Follow with a family style fish that came with a side if rice. I don't usually eat rice this was just perfection. But to finish it all we had the bread pudding. I had never taste a better dessert the warm bread with the cold of the butter ice cream and the nuts and raisins so so good!!! One of my favorite places in New York

    I cannot say enough about our waiter Barney who was attentive, friendly and informative. Four of us shared a number of small plates and table dishes family style. My only criticism is the size of some of the portions - the plates of ceviche were miniscule: the 4 plate sampler for $30 had about 1 oz of fish on each plate! The flavors were great, but they really need to revisit the serving size. Similarly the beet salad ($12) tasted wonderful, but had no more than 1 small beet on the plate. Our favorite dish was the chicharron sliders with pulpo and crispy duck close behind. For dessert bread pudding won out over doughnuts. Don't miss the pisco drinks: sour or punch (if you like pineapple).

    "As a comfortable room in a home of friends". The bar is hoopin,the cocktail menu is exotic, unique unique wines selection. We appreciate the healthier options on the menu, if you want to taste the vegetables, sauces or beverages-Raymi worth a visit. The presentation was beautiful. We ordered the ceviche sampler and it was so fresh and so delicious. Then the plates of empanadas and anticuchos was cooked perfectly and marinated to perfection. the skirt steak we melted in the mouth. We shared a terrific dessert "bread pudding" and "rice pudding". Overall, good food, good service, great experience and the price was not expensive and worth the money. Our fun & bilingual server did a great job,He did a better job than the 100%, I will return.

    This was our first time at Raymi and it will certainly not be our last. We thorough enjoyed ourselves! The food was amazing and the wait staff was more than attentive. There were so many wonderful things listed in the menu that it was difficult to limit ourselves on what to order. We had the chef's special fish dish in an amazing butter sauce with jasmine rice. It was love at first bite! The skirt steak with chimmichurri sauce was cooked to perfection and the quinoa chaufa was delectable. We can't wait to go back with more of our friends so that we can try more things, including the ceviche bar items. Thank you, Raymi, for an amazing dining experience.

    The food is some of the best I have had in a long time. Each dish I had was a wonderful blend of taste and texture, creating a level of sensation that you always hope food can bring. In this case the team at Raymi is also a perfect complement to the food making Raymi a must return. Perfect evening.

    Love Peruvian cuisine and this restaurant's take on it is very good. Service was friendly and attentive but not overbearing. We had a very early dinner so cannot speak accurately to the noise level since it is always quiet at 6pm in any Manhattan restaurant. The bar was filled with after work patrons but still quiet enough that conversation was easily heard between us at our table. This was the perfect spot for an early birthday dinner celebration. Loved the restroom downstairs. Felt more like a spa!

    HonestOpinion
    Dined on 6/25/2014
    I've been to Raymi twice and both times I have enjoyed the food. Some portions are surprisingly small (the waiter even described the large plates as medium - not big). Don't go there expecting to take advantage of any specials - the yelp deal is for the bar/lounge area only, which is pretty much the next table over from the dining room. Same goes for the "ladies night". This was a bit of a bummer. It was also disappointing to hear that they were unable to make a drink that I had the last time I was there because they didn't have the "spicey ingredient" - it was just cayenne pepper! Overall - good food. Not the best I've had, but solid.

    The food is not as good as it used to be, still ok but the level is definitely lower. Finally when we came a band was playing south American music very loud, it was impossible to speak without yelling. So all in all our last visit at Raymi was a big disappointment.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    This was my first time at Raymi. The waiter guided our threesome through cerviche with native cocktails laced with bitters. We then had the pig's ears, tails, ribs, and "sliders." All wonderful with interesting sauces. I asked for a native wine willing to sacrafice authenticity for a Chilean Cab. Instead, there was a Peruvian Syrah with just the right amount of acidity to battle the smokey, garlicly whole chicken and Peruvian Paella that came next. The service, food, and ambience is well worth the trek down to Madison Square.

    A good friend who is an amazing cook recommended Raymi to me. I went there on a date and had a great experience. The food was fantastic. We tried two different ceviche's. They were both incredible. We also had the seafood rice which was so flavorful. The service was great. Everyone was very accommodating. I have recommended it to many friends already and I will definitely be back.

    We were looking for a top notch Latin American restaurant and we certainly found one in Raymi. A delicious ceviche was followed by an excellent arroz con pato. The pisco sours were to die for and service that couldn't be faulted. All in all a most enjoyable Latin dining experience in New York.

    We came to Raymi for a special dinner with the family. We sampled many of the menu items. I had the duck over cilantro rice. I found it to be a bit salty, but overall the food was very good. The live music was a plus! The service was very attentive and helpful as we had many questions regarding the menu. Also, my husband is Gluten Free and there was a nice selection to choose from.

    I had been to this restaurant before and liked it, but on my latest visit, the waiter got our order wrong, even though we had specifically pointed to the item we wanted on the menu and indicated we were sharing 3 small plates. A much more expensive item than what we had ordered arrived. The restaurant did fix the mistake when the bill came, but the service was off all night and the food only so-so. Not sure I'd go back.

    Really enjoyed our dinner here this week. Tried the ceviche/tiradito sampler of four - all good. Shared the pollo a la brassa with my friend, and it was delicious. Complimented nicely by the pisco sours with passion fruit juice. No room for dessert, since everything was so tasty, but we'll definitely be back. The service couldn't have been more perfect. Very friendly helpful servers, and the maitre d' spent some time with us as well discussing Peruvian cuisine. All in all, a very positive dining experience.

    Food is really good! Do not expect big portions, it is not like you are eating at your mother-in-law's (wife is Peruvian) The service was pretty decent and the personnel was friendly and accommodating! We will definitely come back. We did find out they have a life music show in a private room once a month, it is what Peruvians called "Peña" and if you have ever been in one you know what I'm talking about. It's fun!

    I love the relaxed feel of this place.Raymi is destined to be a legendary restaurant in America. What a dining experience. An exciting and varied menu with dishes I have never seen before. The choice of "pulpo meloso" was amazing and "the CAUSA soft shell crab" was outstanding . I definitely would return to try more dishes and I wish recommend this restaurant highly enough. I was in New York for a meeting and this was the highlight of my culinary visit.
