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!

    While this restaurant was written up as gluten free and vegetarian, they had no vegetarian dishes. I am also soy and dairy free, three different waiters were unable to help me with choices until we decided to leave. Then the main waiter came by to tell me they can prepare anything as gluten, dairy and soy free. Why did it take that to get the help I needed? The food was only okay, I wouldn't return. Portion size was small while prices are not inexpensive. Just not the experience I expected.

    Me and my bf love trying different restaurants especially different Peruvian restaurants every sine we came back from our trip earlier this year. Raymi so far is winning the race! its so amazing. Every dish literally took us back and we left so happy we found it. The environment is beautiful and so romantic for a date. I so recommend this place to anyone who want to try amazing Peruvian food without having to travel to it.

    The restaurant ambiance is great, I love the decorations. The food is pretty innovative and creative. Personally, the flavors feel too juxtaposed (vs blended) for me. For example, the octopus tasted like tiger prawn (Chinese) with salsa on the side (Latin). I like where the restaurant is headed and may consider checking back in a few months to see how the menu changes

    This restaurant serves great Peruvian Food and especially the fish dishes are very good. The portions are a little small but the price / value is ok. It can be noisy and the service is sometime a little slow. But the customer service and the follow up when you have a problem is great! The wine list could be bigger with the selection in white and red wine. Overall very good restaurant.

    Very nice evening in all respects. Restaurant manager made a point to greet us, provided an overview of Peruvian food and the menu offerings, and made great recommendations. He also checked back in with us during the meal. Delicious food. Service was also excellent- water glasses were frequently refilled, courses were brought out in a timely way and plates cleared efficiently. We were really too full to tackle desserts that were part of the "Restaurant Week" promotion; our waitress suggested substituting coffee or tea for both of us instead of one of the desserts (no extra charge) which ended the meal on a high note, as well. Special, unique food; great service; a pleasurable evening. Highly recommended in the Chelsea/Flatiron area of NYC.

    We dined here during Restaurant Week. Our group of 4 had a wonderful time and we loved all of the dishes we ordered. The appetizers, in particular, were amazing, as was the bread pudding dessert. Our waiter, Ronnie or Rodney, was excellent, recommending dishes, wine, etc. We will be back and I have already recommended Raymi to friends. One really nice touch...for Restaurant Week the entire regular menu is available to choose from. Very unusual and very much appreciated!

    We went there for restaurant week but were utterly disappointed by how small the portions were. We ordered the mixtos cerviches and charred octopus for appetizers. there's hardly any seafood in the mixtos and 3 small tentacles in the octopus. Will not return to this place nor recommend to others. We presented Get Free Pisco Sour coupon to the bartender but still got charged after we mentioned it to various parties. Service was real slow. Not a great dining experience at all.

    A visit to Raymi is always a delight. Many new taste experiences, especially among the ceviches which expand the art of eating raw fish to levels way beyond sushi. As someone with allergies I find Raymi's menu especially welcoming. All the many choices, including vegetarian- friendly ones, are clearly described. Flavors pop in your mouth in unexpected combinations.

    I had dinner with two girlfriends at Raymi. One of them is allergic to glutton and ordered the "glutton free" entree. When the entree arrived the calamari was not glutton free and the batter was all over the entire dish. The staff was very reluctant to take it back and redo the dish. The manager came over and was very nice and offered to redo the dish, however, the waitress had the nerve to say "you need to let us know that you need glutton free." I did not like that attitude at all.

    I came here for Restaurant Week, and they offer their regular menu (one small plate/ceviche, one large plate, and dessert), which was the reason I made the reservation. The three courses that my girlfriend and I had were delicious, especially the bread pudding for dessert! We would come back to this restaurant for sure and recommend it! Our waiter was also very attentive and courteous, often stopping by to check if we were enjoying our meal.

    Peruvian food with Chinese and Japanese influence - if you are searching for something different - this is worth trying. Space is terrific, hip and colorful. So many choice of seating - sidewalk tables, dining room, bar and high tops, plus private rooms and areas.

    Went there on a Wednesday night to take advantage of restaurant week. Got there around 6:45, and they seated us pretty quickly on the patio area. The waiter is very pleasant, but the service was slow, since he was the only server that was taking order for the patio area (which is not big, only 7 tables). For a Wednesday, it seems like a pretty hopping place. The server keeps on apologizing and letting us know food is coming out - which we didn't get serve our main meal until 8:45. Bar service was fast though... If that make up for anything...

    This restaurant is a fabulous addition to the Latin American cooking in New York.

    We very much enjoyed our dinner at Raymi. We spent time in Peru last summer and the food at this restaurant was like being right back there. The pisco sours were so tasty. The ceviche was perfect! I had the salmon, which was delicious with a crunchy, crispy skin, and my boyfriend had the classic lomo saltado, which was awesome. The food and drinks were perfect. The restaurant was beautifully decorated, and the service was fantastic. Go to Raymi!

Main course I had the arroz con pato (rice and duck leg) OMG it was soooo wonderful with a nice crispy skin! Dessert I had the bread pudding....omg my mouth is watering just thinking about it. I definitely recommend this place. The wait staff was very attentive the noise level wasn't too loud except when me and my party had a good laugh, we got a little loud. The bathrooms downstairs are so cute. Raymi I give you 4 stars and you will be seeing me again!! I have a lot of other dishes to try!

    I am Peruvian, so I am generally pretty critical of Peruvian restaurants but this place was absolutely delicious. The food is authentic but with a refined touch. I strongly suggest the pisco sour if you have to wait at the bar for your group to arrive (as I did). The place is well-decorated, not too loud and not too crowded either. Delicious appetizers we tried - anticuchos (amazing), ceviche mixto, causa limeña (the potato puree was so soft and the salmon/octopus mix was delicious), jalea mixta. For entrees - the lomo salt ado was unreal! Chaufa and arroz con pollo also delicious. Dessert portions are small (suspiro limeño) but worth it. We came for restaurant week, so still found it affordable. I definitely want to come back!

We both had ceviche, excellent! We had the Lomo Saltado and the Marisco Mixto. Also very good! The desert was bread pudding and a desert with dulce de leche- very good. The service was excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. Would go back.

    We went to Raymi for Restaurant Week, and I loved that we weren't treated like pariahs because of that. There was no special RW menu, but rather, you got to choose from the main menu. The food was good, but here's where they lost points: 1) With the live band, you could barely hear yourself think. 2) We were sat at a table near the hostess stand, so we constantly had people resting their elbows on our table while we were eating. 3) THE STAIRCASE TO THE BATHROOM! Beware. It is so slick. Completely sober, I tumbled down, scraping my knees to where they bled and stained my pants. Two seconds after I fell, another woman fell! The hostess came down to see if we were OK, but by her tone, it appeared that she was just trying to avoid a lawsuit.

    We tried Raymi for the first time last week. Everything was really tasty, but the mixto ceviche, the arroz con pato and the brioche bread pudding were all standouts. The only downside was that they were celebrating Peruvian Independence Day with live Afro-Caribbean music that was far too loud. We'll eat there again, but perhaps at a less festive time.
