Farm-to-table
Living in Newfoundland and Labrador, we’re blessed in having access to some of the best seafood, meat, and produce in the world. Having such a bountiful larder right on our doorsteps means we’re able to adopt a truly sustainable approach to fine dining – sourcing locally-grown ingredients and getting to know independent purveyors. We've made every effort to make dining at Raymonds a unique and rare treat. Visit us at 95 Water Street in the heart of downtown St. John’s. Our dinner menu, prepared by head chef Jeremy Charles, is inspired by rustic Atlantic Canadian cuisine. It features authentic dishes that take advantage of Newfoundland and Labrador’s rich variety of seafood, wild game, berries and vegetables, while also exploring innovative, 'haute cuisine' ingredient combinations and finishes.

This was my very time at Raymonds. It was such a beautiful and elevated experience. My brother and I took my Mom to celebrate her retirement. Every detail was clearly considered and our food was excellent. While I was eating I was trying to figure out when I could return. I look forward to my next visit.

Chloe and the team at Raymond’s made my husband and I feel very welcome and valued. Our 5 year wedding anniversary was even more special because of our wonderful experience at Raymond’s! Thank you so much.

Very simple short menu, (a good thing IMO)

Service was attentive, relaxed, non pretentious.

Ambiance was fun, easy going but very classy.

My favourite restaurant. However this visit was very disappointing. The steak was very tough.

Very friendly staff and good service.
I enjoy the wine pairing with our course meal. The dining area had vague fish smell and the meal on that day had 2 fish dishes out of 7 and both were huge portions. I didn’t enjoy the fish dishes as much as I would normally would. I felt like I was done with fish on that day (just from the smell)and the cod on that evening had bit of strong fishiness to it. Maybe i had too high of expectations:)

Overall I think Raymonds is a great restaurant. I think we had the experience of an off night. Items not available, getting different menus, no explanation given for missing components of an order(which when finally provided were perfectly fine). It will not stop me from going back.

Sometimes diners who ask for medium well mean medium well. Our steaks were excellent, just cooked medium, not medium well.

We did the 5 course dinner with wine pairings. Overall the food was good. Some dishes were delicious and others were ok. The tomato and cucumber started salad was pretty lacklustre for this type of restaurant. My tuna dish was very tough and hard to cut, the pasta was incredible and duck was delicious. Yummy dessert. They forgot to bring one of the wines and another one was poured after the dish was done. Staff are super friendly but we felt very neglected. Some of the food was delicious but for the price I wouldn’t go back.

We were very pleased with the entire evening. The pasta starters (moose & vegetarian) were appropriately sized and were delicious. The fresh seared tuna and local pork were wonderfully prepared. We also enjoyed a lovely bottle of California pinot noir. Atmosphere and service first notch.

Excellent service, great wine pairing and fabulous food. We had a fantastic evening. The portions of the menu were just right. Often in seven course menus portions become minuscule, this was definitely not the case with our menu

Justin our server was amazing, said he had only been there a month. Incredible attention to detail, very mannerly, and any questions he did not know the answer to he found out for us. Raegan and Steph were also a pleasure, we never had an empty glass for very long before one of these 3 came to take care of us :) credit to steph for word of mouth. She raved about the brunch menu and is the reason my group of 7 came to visit!

My husband had the chanterelles starter and it was outstanding.
Both of us had the duck as our main course and we both agree that it was the best duck breasts we’ve ever eaten. It was tender and done to perfection.
As a light dessert, you probably won’t find better than the petit fours.
Service was excellent!
