    the Raymond was recommended to us and it met all expectations — wonderful service, ambience and food. Easy to miss as you drive there as sign is small .Others with us are gluten sensitive and they were able to order calamari and other dishes they would not normally have been able to as the preparation was gluten free. BTW we all loved the dishes— most excellent!! Scallops were also very tasty as were the Brussel Sprouts and short ribs.

    Food and drink were exceptional. Clifton was our server and he was professional, attentive, and congenial. We brought our aunt and uncle there to celebrate their 41st wedding anniversary. The restaurant gave us menus that were specially made saying Happy Anniversary on the menu. Great place to celebrate occasions as well as for intimate dinners.

    Pricy (but what isn’t these days?). Also, dining on the outdoor patio, we saw a rat run across us. Other than that, service was good and it’s such a lovely setting. I’ll return when inflation drops but will eat indoors.

    The service was discombobulated. Our drinks arrived at varying times and when we thought we had the entire drinks’ order realized we were still missing one. We needed to wait until the drink arrived before we could toast to the occasion for our gathering. When the food arrived, it was not hot. The bourbon steak was extremely undercooked and the French fries were cold.

    This was a great dining experience. The food was excellent. They have a nice selection of meat and fish dishes and a vegetarian dish. We had the sea bass and charred broccolini and it was excellent. Really enjoyed the Sauvignon Blanc with it. The menu is not extensive. Really one choice each of fish, meat, chicken, and vegetarian. But how much do you need, as long as they do it well. The service was also excellent. It’s a wonderful ambiance in an old mansion.

    We were seated outside and the ambiance was great and the space heaters were perfect. Our waiter was Clifton and he was great and very personable. We had not eaten there in years and so wanted to give it a try. The short ribs and the scallops were delicious but the rib eye was not worth the money. It did not have much flavor and was way under cooked. We did not send it back because that was the last dish to come out as it has been missed and so didn’t want more delay. The cocktails were good and we brought our own wine to enjoy. The service could have been better in terms of attentiveness but everyone was very nice and friendly. Not sure if we’d go back for the value but may give it another try.

    Your noise level makes it VERY hard to have conversations. The music is too loud and the patrons even louder. Ask them to tone it down! I would recommend you only on the very good food!

    We ordered two med rare rib-eyes (@$50 each) and they were both very lean - I mean no marbling whatsoever - and lacking in flavor, with a tepid sauce, which I honestly don't know what it was doing there. When I order a ribeye I wanna enjoy the meat, I'm not there for the sauce. The broccolini it came with was partially burnt. Mentioned it to the server towards the end of the meal. Okay, I realize you're supposed to bring that up right away, but we were hungry, jet lagged and woozy from the cocktails. Not to mention we waited a while for the steaks to arrive after the starters. I was several bites in expecting to get to the good stuff and it just never happened. A $300 meal that left a lot to be desired. Not even a comp on a dessert after said feedback. Shrug.

    The food was fine. The service was terrible. Starting with the hostess, she was unpleasant, to say the least. There was no greeting, and she told us to wait outside and never returned. We went in to ask when we would be seated (we had a reservation) because there were plenty of open tables. Finally, we were seated. The service was sub-par. Again, the disappearing staff literally disappeared, and when they came out, you could barely hear the waiter speak above a whisper. The food was fine, although the temperature was tepid. The pastry board was delicious. Eggs Benedict had a nice flavor. The bills was moderately high (they also brought the wrong bill). Based on the service alone, will not go back.

    While everyone was very nice, we had a reservation at 8pm and were told when we got there late that the kitchen closed at 830pm. Isn’t that weird? They also said the place technically closes at 9pm but we could stay longer. They also forgot to bring something we ordered and I forgot to check if they charged us for it or not.

    Delicious happy hour - the short rib tacos were delicious and the sliders were very solid. The alien pool party cocktails (not on the happy hour menu) are so stellar. Other good dishes include the dynamite tater tots and the Burrata and tomato salad.

    Our server, Carlos, must be commended for uplifting our dining experience! Nice service, great recommendations and knowledge about the new drinks menu were much appreciated. Thanks Carlos! The food was lovely as always. The scallops were a little over salted, but the sauce and peas served with them were delicious! The short rib was super tender and tasty. We tried 2 desserts, the Mango Mousse and the S’Mores, both were delightful!

    Excellent service. The Irish coffee I ordered was delicious and on point. The blueberry waffle was the star in my opinion. We had the crab cake eggs Benedict and the regular eggs Benedict. Way too costly for the food. The potatoes were perfectly crispy, however, they were lacking flavor. You need the ketchup for these otherwise they’re bland. Eggs Benedict were mid, mid, mid and not worth the price.

    Outstanding brunch & atmosphere at the historic Raymond in Pasadena! This was our first visit to the Raymond and everything was smooth from the reservations to the service and, especially, the food. The crabcakes benedict were pure, fresh crab and the asparagus & prosciutto omelet generous and slightly spicy. Then there is the amazing pastry & bread board!

    We really enjoyed our visit to The Raymond. Quaint ambiance (we sat on the patio), excellent service and delicious food. The restaurant is a former private house, so has the feel of visiting someone's home. We went on a Wednesday, and this is the day they have wines at reduced prices, which was nice. The staff were helpful and very attentive to our teenage son, who was traveling with us. We very much enjoyed our visit and would return again if we are in the area.
