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.
On Saturday and Sunday brunch from 12 to 3, enjoy a more casual seating environment with a counter service for a mix of delicious and good for you foods and table service for drinks.
We look forward to serving you soon. Salud y buen provecho!

Raymi Ratings and Reviews
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~
The food I had ( a causa and the hanger steak anticuchos ) was delicious . My friend was happy with the dorade but found the scallops tiradito too salty
I had an excellent traditional pisco
So good gets the good marks - but it was really noisy , like too often in NY ...
The atmosphere in this restaurant is very cool. Their Pisco Sours are the best I've had in NYC! ... please make sure that's the first thing you order to start. I recommend their ceviche. Any of their ceviches are excellent. Their octopus was cooked just right, not chewy. For Main course I recommend the rice with Duck and also the rice with seafood. Very tasty and cooked just right. We ordered the skirt stake to share. We ordered medium and came medium rear- very disappointing.
For dessert a highly recommend the bread pudding and their brownies with quinoa. Delicious!!!!
This was our third visit to Raymi. While my dinner partner thought it was fine, I, as a more discriminating New Yorker, felt the food was HEAVY, a bit too salty for the refined taste and not ideal for health conscious diners.
4 of us decided on a last minute dinner date and I suggested this restaurant as I had been here before. I tried not to oversell the place and let it speak for itself. My friends LOVED the food, the drinks and the service. Will definitely come back again.
This was my husband's and my first time experiencing Peruvian food...it was great! The service both by our waitress (Etelka)who was very patient and helpful in assisting us in selecting our first genuine Peruvian meal, as well as the young man who served our food...all with a smile despite the place being very busy that night and it was a Tuesday. We enjoyed the hanger steak under small plates (the meat was very tender), Arroz Con Mariscos under entree (it was full of fresh & tender seafood in a bowl of camaroli rice), Brioche Bread Pudding w/ almond ice cream for dessert (we thought we'd only eat a bite or two but somehow we both ate our entire desserts despite being so full already) and of course, we tried a signature drink or two of theirs, a Pisco Sour...they were yummy! Note, we went during restaurant week and the portions were huge. The crunchy Peruvian corn in a bowl on the table got us started to a great meal. We would highly recommend this restaurant for its food, drinks, atmosphere and friendly staff.
We had a group of 5 eating dinner on a Sat night during Restaurant Week. The special menu was not offered on Saturdays and we paid the full menu price. However the serving sizes were so small that they looked like what they usually give on those special menus. My daughter's salmon serving was extremely small (2 small pieces) with a few shreds of vegetables. Really unacceptable when you're paying full price. We were also disappointed in the octopus serving- so ungenerous. However this wasn't the case for the people who ordered the skirt steak which was really excellent. Not sure what was up as we've enjoyed this restaurant before. We also found the waitress to be very aggressive in pushing us to order more food. Not sure we'll go back.
