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.

Raymi Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant was beautiful but the items on the menu were very pricey and the portions was very small. To top it off right in front of us there was a high ladder with a handyman trying to fix the wents. Mind you this was Saturday evening during prime dinner time! It was very distracting and rude. The general manager didn’t even come around to apologize!
Drinks were good however, I would not return back. Much better Peruvian restaurants in NYC.
We came here for my husband's birthday and also because we had just come back from Peru so we wanted to find something that reminded us of our recent holiday.
We were seated 30 minutes later than our booking time but this was made up with our first drinks on the house.
They do have chicha morada - a Peruvian staple! It is made in house as well.
The food was fairly good - probably on the smaller side. We shared two small plates and the half chicken (very tender by the way) and two desserts. This was more than enough for us but I could imagine this may be not enough for others.
Service was good - we were always attended to and check in on.
They also sung a little happy birthday to my husband which was very sweet.
I did note that half the restaurant was closed off - the back half. So there definitely is a large space to accomodate lots of customers if they need to. High ceilings and cosy inside.
Would recommend if you want to try Peruvian in NYC. There aren't really that many options around!
Quality of fish has degraded since a year and a half ago when it was fantastic. This time, service was below average - the waitress refused to give us a bowl when we requested . Fish did not taste good. Several premium items were removed from the menu. And they ran out of octopus which made us wonder if they don't have frequent fish delivery.
This place used to be excellent 2 years ago but has really degraded in quality and service. Such a pity because I used to like to go to this place.
Having traveled to Peru recently, I was excited to discover Raymi. The food reminded me of the delicious meals I had in Lima and Cusco. My favorite menu items are the Lomo Saltado and the Causo, and you must enjoy a Pisco Sour (or two) with your meal! The service was friendly and attentive. Can't wait to return to Raymi.
Great experience from beginning to end!! Tuesday night reservation , the food is very flavorful and The Fish was so delicious and the chilcano drink very refreshing. Service was outstanding. My waiter with a great sense of humor which is a plus for me suggested very good choices for apps and main courses. The dining area in the back is cozy and the music is perfect !! Great for a date !! Thanks for the hospitality.
I think this place is capable of doing much more. I had a very enjoyable dinner there once, but this brunch disappointed everyone in our party. I chose it, in part, because they indicated items on the menu were gluten free (but I learned in the restaurant that many of those items marked are only gluten free with modification, a disappointment). The rest of my party was similarly disappointed, without dietary restrictions. I ultimately apologized to the group for my poor restaurant choice. A shame that such a nice space and a great theme is so underwhelming at brunch, but the scarcity of brunchers at this place in this otherwise busy neighborhood should have clued me in.
We came back to Raymi for our anniversary. The ceviches are delicious, our waiter had good suggestions, and the wine list was 30% on bottles. There was a private party with live peruvian music in the backroom, which was very nice. The place was packed on a Wednesday evening, and yet it wasn't very loud which I enjoyed!
We arrived way early for our reservation in a snow storm - it was warm and cozy inside Raymi. Really enjoyed William"s suggestions on the ceviche and mains. Grilled octopus and seafood medly were outstanding, Since we ate in the bar area, it did get loud as more folks arrived, but a great meal with great service
We began with the ceviche classico, which was delicious. Everything that followed, however, left much to be desired.
Our mixed kale salad was lack-luster, missing numerous ingredients. For example, the roasted asparagus and the olives appeared to be omitted. Only limited amounts of roasted tomatoes were found.
Then, after a half hour wait, the octopus and lomo saltado arrived. Yes, the traditional dish of Perú was done the satisfaction. The octopus was burned, rubbery, and the portion wouldn't feed my (petite) cat.
Our server was negligent, forgetting our initial ceviche order. She then did little to alleviate our frustration.
The ambience in the rear dining area is very dark-too dark for my personal preference. And the rest rooms downstairs require a flashlight to see where you need to go. I did illuminate my stall and saw puddles and refuse littering the floor and lavatory. (Surprising that NYC inspectors allow such dimly lit wash rooms.)
Sadly, Raymi is not a place that I can recommend.
I don't know what the situation with the heat was, but this was a post-theater visit and if it was 40 degrees outside it was maybe 50 degrees inside. It warmed up, sure, but that was as more people came in and sat down. Normally, climate and temperature are not something you have to worry about at Raymi, but that night, we almost left because we didn't want to eat with our jackets on.
So, good food, great service, but please do something with your heat.
Stumbled upon this gem while in NYC for my fiancé' bday weekend. It was perfect to take her for dinner. The Maracuya Pisco Sour was fantastic. We went on a Friday and they had a live band that started playing around 10pm. There was enough sound proofing that you could still talk in the dining area while the band played in the bar area. Lomo Saltado was made perfectly. Would recommend this for a date place and for a place to grab drinks.
Everything about this restaurant is understated. The food is a crafted masterpiece, the ambience that perfect mix that's not in your face and not so quiet that it becomes awkward. The cocktails: perfecto! But the service: there are not enough positive adjectives to describe the attentiveness and caring that was apparent in our server!
I love this restaurant and go most times I go to New York. The food is really excellent - I had the classic ceviche and two small plates, kale salad and Peruvian corn cake with mushrooms - recommend them but have had nothing but excellent meals here. It is a fun crowd there always, mostly neighborhood but not all, eclectic and lively. It is a little loud but that is true of most restaurants these days. I highly recommend Raymi.
The ceviche dishes are very good but the star of the show is the octopus appetizer which is amazing and like nothing I've ever had before. Sweet, bitter, smokey, fatty, meaty all at the same time and yet it was absolutely delicious.
Raymi is regularly very consistent with some innovative dishes,but the more delicious I find the dish small. Well worth the price.
Our server was excellent, really nice staff. I highly recommend pisco sour and all creative and healthy drinks.
Definitely we will come back.
Raymi was delicious and fun .The chef is an artist. There are lots of different tastes going on in your mouth all at one time. The quinoa solterito is outstanding, as well as the pulpo meloso dish.Don't skip the anticuchos and the arroz con pato. The food is an innovative creation of Peruvian Cuisine.
The restaurant have a great vibe and I would like to enjoy the energy and the atmosphere of Fridays with live music.
Can't wait to go back again.
Service was impeccable, from the minute that we walked in until the end of the meal, very attentive, food came out on time, best of all it was delicious!
great ambiance too! not too crowded, well spaced out, noise level moderate.
would definitely recommend and come back~
