A word from Raymi
Welcome to Raymi, a modern Peruvian restaurant as dynamic as the country it celebrates. Raymi captures the multicultural spirit of Peru, blending the Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, and native influences that embody the country’s vibrant cuisine. The flavors are once familiar, adventurous, unexpected.





The Raymi experience revolves around a central Ceviche Bar, offering fresh seafood spiked with indigenous spices and ingredients. Add to that a Pisco Bar, pouring select labels alongside 30 house-infused varieties of the fiery liqueur.




We look forward to serving you soon. Salud y buen provecho!

    Food and service are all absolutely exquisite. Wait staff pleasant and courteous, explain menu selections well, are accommodating to special requests/needs. The entertainment the night we were there was top-notch. Santina, the manager, is a pro who knows what she's doing....and it shows.

    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.

The atmosphere here is great, it's lively but not too loud, very sexy. The service is outstanding, very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful staff.

    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.

    Have been to Raymi several times. Took some friends recently so we could try lots of dishes and we all raved about the flavorful dishes and the attentive service. The ceviche tasting was tasty with lots of fresh flavors and unexpected additions of crunch and spice. Arroz con Mariscos was delicious as was a quinoa dish with chicken. Empanadas are not usually my thing but these were light and cheesy. There is a spacious bar with Pisco drinks and some communal dining tables for groups as well as a quieter dining section with tables. We will be back.

    The food is excellent at this restaurant. This was my second time dining here, the service was way better the first time. We waited almost 20 minutes before I got a busboy to find our waiter. Once he started taking orders things improved. We were a very large group but this did not affect the timing of our meals at all. The kitchen did a great job. I highly recommend the pork belly sliders, they were incredible. Overall I would recommend this place, the servers just need to step it up a notch.

    Fourth time here and it was absolutely perfect! The service was outstanding, food absolutely delicious and the cocktails specifically pisco sours were strong and soooo good! We were four and each ordered different dishes all were very very good. I especially loved the Arroz con Pato (duck dish) the duck was cooked perfectly andso tasty, loved the rice and sauce it was perfection. I'm gluten free and I loved the fact that all gf dishes were marked on the menu and the servers were very knowledgable and helpful. For dessert the only gf option was the rice pudding with quinoa granola which I thought would be boring but their version was very yummy! I'm in love!

    Took out of town guests to Raymi tonight because I know their Peruvian cuisine is colorful, flavorful, and delicious. Indeed, the food was lovely. The pleasant surprise was how generous the management was in responding to a hiccup. Our food was delayed due to an issue in the kitchen which was at first frustrating, however management offered to comp our entire meal to make up for the inconvenience and this was such a grand gesture we left feeling well fed and well taken care of. I will certainly be back and can enthusiastically recommend Raymi.

    After hearing great reviews post-restaurant week, I visited the restaurant and was impressed. My guest and I actually sat the bar and were greeted by a cool and helpful bartender (definitely looked around at the other tables and everyone else seemeed to be enjoying themselves as well). He explained how the menu was laid out/food served (e.g., tapas style), how Peruvian food is different from that of other cultures, and was great with drinks. All in all a top notch experience. Visit and enjoy.

    I'm not a food critic or writer.Don't really know how to describe the flavors of food besides knowing when something taste really good and the experience I had. That's why after a few bad experiences at recognized and awarded restaurants in NY I couldn't stop thinking about the amazing night of March 7. I miss the feeling of that day,The passion and the heart that every employee at Raymi put doing everything.They know, that they are fighting to make big name in the capital of the world, winning the respect and support of the customers every day, dish by dish,bite by bite making us fortunate of this gastronomic jewel one of the most precious ones in NYC.God bless Raymi and us to get many years to keep enjoying your delicious food.
