    I ordered the fresh catch which was grouper. It was a thin piece which surprised me and it was very dry and over cooked. The rest of our party, which there were four of us said their food was good. Dessert was very good. I was just disappointed in the piece of grouper.

    We were seated on the first floor inside and it was very noisy, but as the evening progressed it was very enjoyable. Our server was great. Understood the menu and made some recommendations. The food was just as he described. It was a great meal and we would go back again.

    Seating area was nice, waiter pleasant, dessert good but got my Husband’s main course wrong! He ordered the Pasta Alfredo sauce with shrimp! They gave him the Pasta Alfredo with chicken! When we told our waiter he said he would take it but not wanting to wait and eat separately my husband kept it! Then received the check we were charged for shrimp and pointed it out to our waiter he replied they are the same price! Never heard chicken and shrimp be the same price! Paid the bill and left! Not for anything but technically our order was wrong!’

    We've been there several times over the years for dinner, usually for our anniversary. We've been wanting to try the Sunday Brunch for months and we finally did this past Sunday. It was absolutely delicious! Their grits are amazing! Everything was delicious. Shelby, our waitress provided excellent service. We will definitely be back for brunch and of course, we will continue with our anniversary dinners. Raintree NEVER disappoints. :)

    First we get our water and the glass had lipstick still on it, my boyfriend doesn’t wear lipstick. He got lamb and I got the brandy pepper steak. We both ask for it to be medium and both came out well done. My steak was dry and the tasted like a horrible hamburger, almost grab the mint sauce from my boyfriend lamb to give flavor. The potatoes wear really salty. We asked for limes for the waters, the limes were dried, old looking. Nonetheless, this is the first and last time coming to this restaurant. Funny thing, the tip was added into the bill and give you an option for an additional tip. Other restaurants around do not do that.

    Ambiance was lovely. It felt very cozy with the fireplaces and decor. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. We were celebrating our anniversary and they gave us a nice card when we arrived which was very much appreciated. We have a 3-month old who accompanied us and they were very accommodating in placing us at a table with plenty of space that had a little privacy. Food was great and we will definitely be back again!

    I never give a full 5/5 but this restaurant deserves every bit of it! Do not pass this beautiful and historic restaurant on your next trip! Reservations are a MUST- as this place fills up quickly. The food: Speechless. I have never experienced such flavors and tenderness of meats. From the starter salad to main entree to desserts- this place will leave you hanging with your jaw wide open BEGGING for more! Absolutely delicious!! For reference we ordered: 6oz Fillet Mignon/ Fettuccine/ Chicken Zingara. The atmosphere: We came down during Night of Lights towards New Years Eve and this placed is decked out as the cutest hallmark movie set! They go above and beyond to make you feel like you have not entered a restaurant but entered a new realm of restaurants! It completely left me in shock on how I was sitting in a restaurant when I felt like an extra on a movie set lol If you’re coming to visit St Augustine FL and want a unique but fun and memorable dining experience then this is your number one spot!! Thanks- from STL, MO!

    I accidentally gave an additional $25.00 tip because I didn't study the check before I paid it. I didn't see the already added 15% tip to the bill, which I think was adequate. Could I please get a refund for the $25?
