RavenDb does all the heavy lifting for you in 99% of cases. The API is easy to work with and lets you write very readable code. There is a small learning curve at the start but this is true for any tech. Raven's curve is easy to get over.
Documentation is quite good and the database is being continuously developed and improved. I haven't had any issues personally but others say their issues were resolved promptly.
If you're looking for a NoSQL database, RavenDb is easy to pick up and works great.
