Were not accommodating of our baby who we had in a car seat. There was no room for her and the table was really small for our family size. And they didn’t want to move us outside or in another location better suited so we had to leave.

Wasn't a good experience at all. Made a reservation for patio and when we got there nothing was available except indoors. Drove all they way from Santa Monica and the only table was a tiny low one usually for drinks... so we took that,
could't talk and chairs were so low and uncomfortable. This was not a fun meal.
I was expecting a more relaxing and enjoyable meal, not what I remembered from years ago. Not sure if I would return.

For a historic place with such charm, there seem to be a lacking of comon courtesy with the front desk staff. We arrived 30 minutes early to enjoy a drink at the bar and take in a bit of the history. Only to be told that the bar was reservations only. We said we just wanted to have a drink at the bar and not eat there. The same dogma was repeated to us that the bar was reservations only. We were then told that the bar no longer let's people sit there. ( This could have been listed on the site) we were the told we could have our table now which was at the entrance. We arrived at 5:30 at 6:30 I used the facilities and took a peek at the bar there we empty tables there and at 7:30 when we left. We were never offered an option to take one of those tables. The food was good although we have had better for the same price. The waiters and wait staff were very good.

The menu is stripped down, not a lot of options. Their great Burger is off the dinner menu? What?
Not a lot of options for sharing appetizers. drinks are still good

There were 3 of us in a family empty restaurant for a business dinner. The service was persnickety as there are no substitutions or modifications of any kind for any reason to very average at best food-- and a sad wine list

Even though we were there on a very hot day, there were large umbrella's to shade us & everyone cleaned their plate. This restaurant has been there since 1886 for a good reason!

The Raymond provides a beautiful setting. Due to COVID 19 precaution we requested outdoor seating with some concern because it was supposed to be a hot day. The outdoor area was completely shaded and comfortable. Service was wonderful. Conversation was a bit difficult because everyone was speaking loudly. The food overall was very good and in very generous proportions. I had the salmon on toast with avocado, others had the eggs benedict (wonderful), breakfast burrito (very good), and Reuben sandwich (huge and very good). We intend to come back and try their lunch or dinner menu. Our friends were also delighted with The Raymond.

I had made reservations for an outdoor table, but the host, who didn't even welcome us, said he only had an indoor table available, which was very dark, cold and noisy. The waitress was efficient enough, but not very warm, and never waited to see if we needed anything else after delivering food. The food was very good. When leaving, the host did not even say anything like thanking us for coming. I will not return.

We had a group of 6 and our dog. We were seated in their nice patio. The food was good, but we felt neglected by our waiter. We would have loved to order more wine, deserts, and coffee, but just getting his attention was difficult that we opted for the check instead. It was disappointing since we had our parents and in-laws visiting from out of town and we always have a pleasant experience at The Raymond.

We’ve eaten here before. Great food and bar. Was a little disappointed with the service. Took 30 minutes to get a drink order when we had reservations and our waiter came back twice to confirm what we had ordered - drink order after waiting and then desert after waiting. Like the patio option and the vibe here in general but the service was disappointing. Also, since parking is hard we appreciate the valet, however didn’t like that the valet drivers had no masks on when in our vehicle since we have a kid not old enough to be vaccinated. Would try again but not sure this service was worth the price….

Recently attended with girlfriends to celebrate a milestone birthday. The service, food and ambiance was PERFECT. And even on a hot 90-something degree day, brunch in their covered patio was cool and comfortable. Everyone was happy.

Went for brunch, ordered the breakfast sandwich .. didn’t have any bacon. Didn’t complain though. Then I noticed I had runny egg whites, gross. Not sure what happened in the kitchen. Fries - good, vibe 10/10

The servers are nice and the place is quaint, but the food is overpriced for the quality. $18 for 3 prawns that weren't really prawns. (think more like small shrimp scampi), chicken was lacking seasoning, steak was overcooked and tough ($97) and they charge you for bread and butter. It was was a cool ambiance vibe, but I wouldn't go back.

Service was spotty even though we arrived towards the end of the brunch service. A request for a non spicy Bloody Mary was disappointing as it was too spicy. Our entrées took forever to arrive. The quality of the food, however, was good. The coffee however was terrible, weak and hardly warm.

The Raymond never disappoints, whether you want a good weekend brunch, a weekday Happy Hour cocktail or a pleasant dinner outing. The food is excellent, with a reasonably priced and inventive menu as well as a friendly and professional staff.

I’ve been here several times and I’m usually over the moon about it. I will go back again for sure, but it didn’t live up to my previous experiences this time. We were seated on the patio and at a table that was right next to the parking lot. They have bamboo trees that somewhat block the view, but you can hear Street noise snd there a bunch of flies by our table which wasn’t great. The other patio is nicer and it really impacts the experience. Again, I’ll be back, but will be requesting a different table/patio.

There was a horrible A-hole whose fancy sports car idled at about a million decibels, and he insisted on letting it idle outside the patio, we couldn’t hold a conversation. He sat in the car subjecting all the dinners to this aural assault for what seemed like five minutes. We finally contacted the manager to ask if they would speak to this customer. It was kind of shocking that the managers did nothing to mitigate the problem.
