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!

    I went to Raymi with a friend visiting from Austin, TX, I am a Peruvian food lover and wanted him to try it in NY. The restaurant selection was great, we got a table in the back of the restaurant which was very nice, the pisco sour was fantastic, we had 3 each!! not too sweet what makes it excellent. We both had ceviches as appetizer and both were great. And shared one of 'for the table' entree options. We had a great time, service was really outstanding and we enjoyed every minute. Definitely recommended

    My friends and I enjoyed a restaurant week dinner on the patio at Raymi. We didn't realize it was also ladies night (great $6 drinks all night!) and were pleasantly surprised. I loved each of my three courses: a ceviche dish, salmon, and bread pudding for dessert. The other desserts were ok but not outstanding. My friends also loved their quinoa dishes and the corn cake with mushrooms. Our server was attentive and flirtatious (in a charming way) and kept us laughing through dinner. I'll definitely come back!

    we had a great experience at Raymi, the server was very attentive and accommodating--when we saw that the one vegetarian plate we saw on the online menu wasn't available, he made sure the chef put together vegetarian dishes for us. We also had a lychee pisco that went perfectly with the dishes such as the corncake w mushrooms and tostones and quinoa salad.

    Service was amazing. Waiters and hostess made us feel at home with their jokes and friendliness. Food was good. All the reviews made a big deal about their ceviche and I thought it was just ok. Small portion and very limited fish on it. Taste was ok, nothing out of this world. The arroz con Pato was awesome. First time trying duck and I can't complaint it tastes like "chicken". Drinks were also on point.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
