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.

We were there for one of Raymond's "Pop Up" nights (Burger Night). Needless to say Raymond's did not disappoint! Everything was just perfect, and We enjoyed probably the best Burger I have ever had!

Incredible service, exceptionally knowledgeable staff. They went above and beyond. The food was incredible, the wine was perfectly matched. Best night out in a long time. She’s at our table ranged from 30 to 86 and everyone enjoyed every moment. The Tuna was divine

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!

Disappointed, not what I have come to expect when going to Raymond’s, and unfortunately we’re with friends who had never been before. Even the bathrooms didn’t have enough facecloths to dry your hands, and se verse of the bathrooms the hand lotion was empty. And the food was OK, but didn’t knock my socks off like I’m used to, and frankly expect given the price point.

Perfect for your date night We went here to celebrate our engagement and we had the best time ever we ended up doing the tasting menu as we couldn’t pick what to order as everything looks so good it was such a good decision we picked a five course tasting menu and every single thing that came out was over and above what we expected I would like to tell you what the highlight course was but we can’t pick as everything was well we had a table right by the window overlooking the water in signal Hill and it was beautiful our waitress and all the staff were Very kind they did not come to the table too often and interrupt the evening but came at perfect times with the courses and for wine if you’re looking just to have a glass or two of wine I highly recommend the Chardonnay that’s purchase by the glass it was crisp and went perfectly with our meal hats off to the chef The unique ingredients and the perfectly cooked protein left us wowed!!! we have eaten at the top restaurants all over Canada and this is definitely tied for first place!!! Now we just need to figure out when our next time is in St. John’s so we can book again

We had the 5 course tasting menu. The chef created some great dishes and even catered for my friend who was gluten free. The best dishes for me was the cod, duck and the desserts !! Amazing !! The Rose wine was very nice too.

Exceptional. Best dining experience I’ve had in St. John’s! Staff were knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Absolutely beautiful spot Jeremy Bonia & Jeremy Charles have. Ross Larkin’s was able to turn green vegetables into the most exciting food every. Celeste Mah’s desserts were the sole reason for the visit and were nothing below superb perfection. Cannot stress the satisfaction.

We went to Raymond's last week for my birthday dinner. It was spectacular! Our service was outstanding and the food was the best. My salmon was perfection on a plate and my husbands steak was amazing! For that special night out, I would highly recommend!

A friends posted a challenge on Facebook the other day. How would you get someone to go on a date with you using just three words. There were a number of entries: I will cook, let's go biking, big bank balance.
Then someone wrote, "Raymond's on Friday?" Everyone agreed that was the winner, hands down, and there are no more entries!
