Our first time at Raymond’s in St. John’s, Newfoundland. It was named Canada’s Best New Restaurant by En Route magazine — http://enroute.aircanada.com/en/articles/canada-s-best-new-restaurants-2011/page:11
I had the Beet and Kale Salad which I liked very much.
DH had the Seafood Soup — Tomato, fresh cod, white wine, fennel, brioche, saffron aïoli
DH had the Beef Tenderloin
For dessert we had the Creme Brulee with Berries and Madeleines, which was a pretty boring dessert.
Service was not up to par for what I’d expect at a fine dining establishment at the top of a national top 10 list.It lacked friendliness, warmth and hospitality.
