Your server was excellent. Food well presented and high quality. The one person that amazed us the most was a young girl who cleaned tables. She was non stop and invisible to the guest which is very valuable for both service and ambiance. Would and have recommended this restaurant.

This restaurant is a gem. I would not pass up the opportunity to visit this place. The food and staff were amazing. A storm was coming and they accommodated us sit inside. We loved our food and the atmosphere was great.

What an amazing restaurant! Me and my boyfriend were in town for our first vacation and wanted to see what food options St. Augustine had to offer. Needless to say, Raintree was MORE than what we expected. The service, the atmosphere and the food were all great. If I could give Raintree a 10 star, I would most definitely do so. I ordered the Chicken and Shrimp Alfredo pasta with the Champaign butter sauce and he got the lasagna with sausage; the temperature, quality and portion sizes were all good! Thank you so much Raintree for an amazing experience!! We will be back :)

We dined at raintree about a week ago also and did have an overall better experience than we had this evening. Service was okay, but not nearly as good as last time when we had ‘andy’. We had to ask what the specials were since we were not told by our server. I ordered the mahi special crusted with wasabi. The flavors were very nice, however, the fish could have been cooked a tad more, IMO. Nice fresh veggies, perfectly cooked. My husband had the prime rib, which he had been looking forward to. Unfortunately, it was not a winner. The color alone was off and the texture was not as prime rib should be. Very disappointing. Again, we did enjoy sitting in the pretty outdoor courtyard. We will return the next time we are in st. Augustine.

A real restaurant in a sea of trite fried foods. Well done, with cooked to order selections. Tasty. Interesting, sort of English menu and a decent but not broad wine list. Book early. The crowds are back. Notice that they automatically add a 15% tip. Kind of annoying, until you realize that everyone in St Augustine is doing something similar. The bar at the Doubletree next door automatically added 20%.

You're paying for scenery more than anything. If I went back I would just get dessert and wine.

We had a wonderful time at Raintree! Everything was outstanding!! To start with, the drinks were superb and prepared exactly as we requested—probably the most perfect martini I’ve ever had. We shared the escargot, which were delicious and garlicky, served with toasted French bread to soak up the luxurious butter garlic sauce. My husband had the pepper steak in brandy sauce. It was melt in your mouth delicious. I had the panko Parmesan crusted salmon and it was outstanding! My husband had the berry crepe and I had the key lime pie. We preferred the crepe, which had wonderful flavor and delicious vanilla ice cream. Our server was very attentive. We liked it so much we already made another reservation!!

Beautiful setting and good food. Some servers were excellent. We dined there 3 times during our vacation. The last night our server was not at all attentive. Another server saw that and jumped in to take and serve our dessert. Manager should take notice.

We had a great impression from the start due to the kind host straightening out a mix up with the reservation system. There is a lovely outdoor patio, but we opted to eat in the sun room since it was a chilly evening. Our server, Andy, was very attentive, and the food was outstanding - loved the escargot and tuna carpaccio appetizers along with the Beef Wellington and Rack of Lamb. Our 7 year old loved the kids’ pasta with marinara too. While the raspberry mousse was as a bit too sweet (drowning in sauce at the top of the parfait dish), the three of us devoured the peanut butter cookie with ice cream. Overall, it was a great experience with an al la carte menu on Easter. The Raintree Restaurant is not to be missed.

We met friends for an Easter dinner. We were seated upstairs which was very nice. The restaurant posts on their website an Easter dinner menu which notes that prices and selections are subject to change. In the past, we have enjoyed dining at the restaurant to celebrate Easter and have always had their holiday ham dinner and was looking forward to the same entree this year but unfortunately it was not available but their menu had other great entree selections.

A long time favorite--never had a bad meal. This trip we each had Rack-of- Lamb; we both thought it was terrific! For dessert we shared the bread pudding, also excellent.

Enjoyed Easter Dinner at the Raintree. Food and service were great. Our server Brent was attentative, even though the restaurant was extremely busy. And the restaurant followed CDC guidelines, so that we felt comfortable dining indoors. Highly recommended.

Had early dinner reservations on Easter Sunday. The food we received was very good and well presented. Unfortunately our server definitely was not the best. When seated he seemed to want to rush us. We did slow him down. After a relaxing period we received our entrees but never received our salads. He compensated with "no charge" dessert. Again, unfortunately, he brought mine and never brought my wife's until I completely finished eating mine. We are locals and have always had enjoyable experiences at Raintree. This is the only time we were disappointed and it was due to the service.

Perfect blend of classic French cuisine with modern twists. Outdoor dining patios are great for social distancing and have heat lamps if you get a little chilly. Service is impeccable. Prices are moderate. Just go, you won't be disappointed.

Saw great reviews, so booked Easter breakfast---did not enjoy food sadly. My husband like his french toast, I had omelette, was just ok. Breakfast tea choices were awful, no english breakfast, just flavored teas, no fresh honey or sweet and low for tea either. Was not impressed at all by breakfast. Tables and floor were dirty, Watched them clean table next to me and after that would not eat here again, a quick wipe down of the top of the table and that's it.
