Love the ambiance and the food/drinks at the Raymond. Service is often slow, especially long wait for cocktails.
Service was great, food and drink were excellent! The patio is spacious and tables are separated well - felt very comfortable and safe. Wonderful brunch!
Waiters there are the best!!!!
Couldn’t be better
Love this place, had mostly appetizers and drinks. One of the servers spilled a bit of my specialty drink on his hands and table. I made a remark to see if he would put that on the house and didn't. I didn't think it would be a huge request based on what happened. Otherwise loved everything.
The service really needs to be improve here. First of all , we were here for birthday. I do call ahead of time to mentions we are here for celebrating birthday and planning to give her a surprises. They said will have a complimentary dessert for her. However, when we ask for dessert menu the server just leave it on the table without explain the dessert menu . We end up ordered a dessert but it's came up with no candle and no complimentary dessert . Ending up we have to ask the server for the candle and very disappointing was the server doesn't even know we are celebrating birthday here!
We went for my friend’s birthday. The Ambiance was wonderful. The patio was spacious and open and well shaded from the hot sun. The food was incredible. I will come back for dinner!
Enjoyable outdoor experience. Great breakfast entrees. Good service.
It was a real disappointment ...sorry I spent money is a place that really didn't care if we were there.
The food was great but the place feels "short-staffed" - our waiter never came by unless we raised our hand and our voice to get his attention. I expect more from this restaurant. The poor service really took away our experience. Hope The Raymond will address this issue because we really enjoyed the food, just wish we had better services.
Service was abysmal. So much so that I will NEVER return. I suggest you avoid as well unless you’re ok with being ignored whilst other tables are receiving service.
Experience and food was great, we tried the fixed menu only complaint was the salmon skin chip was soft and inedible.
We went for brunch and everything was wonderful! I was a bit concerned about how the patio area would look and feel but in terms of experience it was just perfect. There is a huge fireplace right in the center. Just gorgeous! The service was attentive and the food was delicious.
It was nice to have a wonderful meal with my family. It was outdoors but they had heaters warming the space. Great!!!!
Our table was on the corner and made it ideal to deal with social distancing. Thanks for a lovely morning
Food and service excellent at reasonable price. Ambience cozy, homey, very nice!
The dinner menu was way over priced for such small portions. We enjoy going there for brunch but we will never go back for dinner.
The Raymond has always been one of our favorites for special meals. For our anniversary dinner, we had the tasting menu at the Raymond. Every bite was fabulous. All of the diners are seated on the patios so you feel very safe dining out. The service was wonderful and the food was absolutely amazing. We would highly recommend The Raymond for any night out.
We had the tasting menu and wine pairing so I can't comment on the regular menu. The tasting menu was GREAT and I think it was a very good value. They were bringing out the food too quickly at first but once we made a comment to slow it down. It was perfect. Great service, great food,
We were there for Paul Shoemaker’s (Michelin star chef) tasting menu as a happy coincidence. The restaurant is normally stellar regardless. Love the ambience and the drinks are amazing. Food is delicious.
I came to this restaurant from OC just for Paul Shoemaker. The food was flawless as usual. I did not give full stars as the service was subpar. The pricing should reflect many things, food pricing, labor, supplies rent, taxes, competition, market changes, theft, etc. What it also indicates is customer service and wait staff experience. For an almost $350 bill for an evening of tastings, the water glasses should be full and not having to ask 2 different people for more. The tasting experience should be timed better. Sometimes the drinks would fly out at once, sometimes the food would pile up. Communication is key! I hope for a better experience with the wait staff being more attentive and high-end experience.
Food was fantastic. Our server Brian (?) was excellent and ambience outstanding
Nice outdoor patio. Attentive, knowledgeable server. Delicious food. Acknowledged birthday celebration
The Raymond is unique and historical. Food as good, but a bit salty. The mimosas were delightful.
The best chicken curry in town. The very large covered patio was a bonus, as the weather was threatening rain. The service was perfect.
Classy place. Great food. Interesting drink options. Professional service!
I had waited nearly 30 years to visit. Excited to celebrate my friend’s birthday I booked myself a reservation. The service was friendly. However the presence or lack of it did not match the price tag. A casual uniform only implies casual wear resulting in casual service. And that is NOT what the price tag is symbolic of. At least for me. The starters were delicious, the octopus was finger licking and so were the Brussels sprouts. The salad very fresh. To my surprise the steak & pork chops were contrary. The meat not was dry and NOT soft. I can literally purchase softer quality at Sprouts. Very disappointed. I nearly paid $200 for dinner for 2 and left regretting the visit after nearly a long 3 decade wait. Sorry. But I would NEVER return nor recommend to anyone.
I am an ICU nurse. I wasn’t able to celebrate my husband’s birthday with him due to my busy working schedule, especially during this pandemic. I made reservation for him to have his birthday lunch alone in Raymond. The staffs are very friendly and sent him a complimentary birthday cake. Thank you for making his birthday so beautiful & pleasant! Raymond, excellent food & service as always! Thank you!!
Brunch menu was somewhat limited. Was hoping to order more items based on reviews, however most of the things we intended to try were unavailable. Had the smoked salmon with avocado on toast, peach and burrata salad and chicken chilaquiles. Everything was pretty good and price was reasonable. Noise level was a little loud being it’s on Fair Oaks and outdoor dining, but not unbearable. Valet parking $5 otherwise limited street parking.
Great restaurant with atmosphere and a wonderful staff. Creative menu with well prepared dishes. Great for date night or just to have a relaxing meal.
Our favorite Pasadena restaurant with great outdoor patios.
One of my favorite places in Pasadena for brunch. 🙏🏻 for always making my visit memorable. Food, service and atmosphere always on point... 😘😘
A Sunday brunch, outdoor and socially distant
We were forced to hurry to order, eat and leave on a Saturday night with an 8:30 reservation. Our main course wasn’t even on the table and we were pressured to order dessert. We didn’t even get to order coffee/tea. We were interrupted multiple times with “the restaurant is closing” and basically that we need to leave. Honestly, made the whole experience very unpleasant and we were trying to celebrate 2 birthdays. 😞
The outdoor dining is part of the restaurant and not tacked on due to Covid. We sat by the outdoor fireplace. Service was exceptional.
Excellent food, great service and beautiful patio. The tables were nice and spread out. We found a place we could take our dog too! They even brought him a water bowl and treats while we ate. Very nice staff!
The patios are perfect and the service is still great even during this pandemic!
We were celebrating 3 October birthdays.
Beautiful place to eat during the pandemic! Eat in back garden which was lovely and quiet. Service a little slow due, I think, to distance from kitchen.
Love this restaurant. Beautiful ambiance and the food /drinks are always top notch. If you have never been here, come on down.
