    We truly enjoyed our experience at Raintree. We had a reservation and they seated us right away. Service was great and the food was spot on. We sat outside and enjoyed the breeze. All in all, it was a wonderful evening. We will be back. Food: Lobster Bisque Soup, Italian Black Bean Soup, Wedge salad, Rack of Lamb, and Filet. Dessert: Key Lime Pie, Chocolate Dome, & Bread Pudding. All perfectly done!

    Restaurants with best food and service are Caps and Raintree. They are the most consistent in St. Augustine. Fish Camp has good food and ambience and is the best value.

    We've been going to this restaurant for 4+ years. They have added several upcharges that I have not seen before then add the required 15% tip this place is getting way overpriced, for the quality and quantity. There were 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 kids + desert and the bill was almost $250. The kids ordered kids meal pizzas and the pizzas were horrible, soggy and inedible. I used to enjoy the restaurant but it's going to be quite some time that we go back, if ever. We'll find another restaurant that serves beef wellington.

    We always enjoy Raintree. The food was excellent from soup to salad to entree to desert. Yup, we did it all. Our only snag was a very, very loud table near us. It seems that someone could have asked that they just tamp it down a bit. it was annoying to us and to the tables right around us. Happily, they left when our entrees were delivered.

    Food was good. Not great, but good enough to warrant a return visit .. Beef wellington was a bit bland, but super tender. The surprise came as I was signing the bill (party of two). After I tipped I noticed that a 15% gratuity had already been added. If its added automatically, its not a tip - its part of the meal. I do believe in tipping our servers, I generally tip 22-25% (or more if the service is exceptional), but when the establishment chooses for me that my service was worth at least 15% its not a tip - its paying part of their employees wages , which is fine if its just included in the price of the menu items. I would MUCH have preferred for the prices on the menu to be increased by 15% , thats a bit more transparent than automatically adding 15% at the end. I am used to automatic gratuity for large parties , its just a bit of a shock on a party of 2.. I wonder how many people dont even catch the fact that 15% has already been added? (even though it is clearly stated on the receipt, its easy to miss because you are just used to tipping out and signing, especially if you are in the middle of date/conversation etc). Because I consider this deceptive, I will not be returning and would not recommend this to my friends or family.

    The Raintree has always been one of my favorite restaurants and I’ve lived here for 30 years. Our Waiter Dave was friendly and attentive he provided a wonderful evening for my friend and I. The food is wonderful I have a hard time trying anything else on the menu because I always seem to go for the beef Wellington it’s the only place in town where you can get it and it’s fantastic and of course I added a lobster tail to my meal. I started with the Caesar salad and my friend had the Raintree salad both salads were very good and fresh. we both ordered the beef Wellington with lobster tail the beef Wellington came with a dollop of mashed potatoes green beans and carrots and the lobster tail was very big and meaty everything was cooked perfectly the pastry puff was a nice golden brown the fillet inside was so tender with the perfect amount of mashed potatoes served with a fresh sprig of rosemary. I don’t usually leave reviews however the Raintree is an outstanding restaurant with consistent food and service I look forward to coming back soon i mustn’t forget to mention that my martini was up and dry and perfect. i highly recommend the Raintree.

    I've been to your restaurant approximately 20 times. But last night, it wasn't the best you guys have done. You deep fried the duck instead of sautéing, it, and it was completely overcooked. My blackened salmon was also very overcooked. And the Escargot was not up to it usual standards. We were very disappointed.

    We had had a recommendation for this restaurant and we had early reservations due to a concert we were going to. We were very disappointed in the quality of the food. It was bland, lukewarm, and certainly not worth several hundred dollars for four people. The ambience was cute for an old house but seemed dated and needed a facelift, even while keeping the old charm of it.

    One in party ordered Cesar salad with grilled salmon. Salmon was grilled to black edges and dry from over cooking. Another ordered Raintree seafood Thermidor that was over cooked. Others said food was only fair. Also, charged 2% to split check between two couples and also automatically added a 15% tip. Not the experience we were use to at Raintree.

    Went for my wife's Birthday with my daughter and her 3 year old son. We've been there a few times before and have always had an enjoyable experience. Unfortunately this time was not up to snuff. My daughter and I both ordered the Wellington, which in the past was excellent, this time not only was it extremely small (quite a pricey entree) but they mixed up the orders. Mine med rare and hers med. We had to identify them and then switch. That happens when the one that drops off the meal is not the Server. Neither were as tender as expected. Luckily my wife's meal was better - seafood and pasta - an easy meal to make. Needless to say, doubtful we'll be back any time soon if ever.

    Busy and noisy, not at all what I expected. Food was pedestrian and not worth the cost. Salad and soup were the only decent items we had. The eggplant was truly inedible. It was bland, overcooked and gritty. Beef wellington was nothing like the dish should have been. Service was forced and insincere. All in all a one and done. We are locals and should have known better.
