I was disappointed in my entre- pork chops- too overdone. However, my friends liked their entrees. This is a very historic location and I just wish the menu was more extensive. It was also more expensive than I expected.

Waited for awhile to get seated. It was a little dark that needed our IPhone light to read the menu. White wine that we ordered was excellent. Food was great and the service.

The person that waited on our table was very good, but the rest of the staff seemed uninterested or rude, especially the guy who ran the check-in/phone station. He was curt and openly rude. We have been coming to the Raymond for 35 years, we even had our rehearsal dinner there. I get that they may be stressed, but I doubt that if it will improve if they treat their customers the way that they are. The food was well prepared and up to their usual standards and the wine was good. My guess is that there are a lot of other restaurants in Pasadena where you will not be treated as an imposition.

We sat on one of their patio's which was delightful. We went for brunch and the menu items were diverse and interesting. The only minor drawback is that there was a little road noise, but that's really nothing they can do about it.

Always enjoy the Raymond. Delicious food and drinks. It is pricey but if you eat in the bar, their menu is more reasonable. Outside is lovely but my favorite is the dark bar, reminds me of old-timey bars. The bar is especially great for dates with 1 inside space and 2 outdoor spaces. I had the DineLA menu last night and it was good sized portions and really enjoyed it

First time there after hearing mentions of the place over the years. Ordered a medium rare steak, it was nearly well done when I got it. Broccolini was dry. My date ordered the half chicken, it wasmassice, but plain and nothing to really write home about. The bread and butters were yummy. The highlights were really the cocktails: the nacional drink and the espresso martini were both perfect. Service was good. Music was great. That patio is where you want to sit when you’re there. It picked up around 6 and the energy was good.

Went to celebrate our anniversary and thought this place was perfect for outdoor seating.Sent a message through the app to let them the special occasion and when we were sat, they served us with complimentary champagne! Our waiter was great…thank you Patrick! Food was good a little pricey though. My whiskey sour was perfect! The second was too!

My sister and I went for brunch. The coffee was terribly bitter. She ordered a pastrami on rye and I ordered eggs Benedict. Her rye bread looked like a slab of wood, it was hard like one too. Pastrami had no flavor. She ended up eatting the side salad it came with. My eggs Benedict were ok, they weren't bad, but nothing fancy. The potatoes on the side were well seasoned. Overall, I don't think we will be coming back.

We felt forgotten by our server. We were given a table on a bench in the corner which felt weird. We waited almost 2 hours for our food to arrive, and when it did arrive, it was extremely underwhelming. The restaurant had plenty of open tables so it wasn’t insanely busy. Where was our server all night? It was stunning. It simply was not worth it, the poor service and food at premium prices just sucked. The building itself is cool but overall you can find a million other restaurants better than this in LA

We went for brunch and it was very lackluster. It took about 15 min for drinks to arrive, then an additional 15 min for our order to be taken, lastly 30 min until our food arrived. No check ins during the meal to replenish drinks, confirm orders were correct/tasting good. Food was average and not worth the pricing.

Sept. 2021 -Dinner portions are very small and 3 different entrees, ALL you could taste was butter. Only two salad choices: kale and arugula with 2-3 thinly slices of microscopic size mandarin oranges...literally. No joke.
Extremely dry, basically there were a few drops of something without any flavor on the salads, which couldn't be called a dressing.
Very disappointing.

The service was very nice. The menu however overpromised and underdelivered. I had the Jidori chicken which was dry, and the "bed" of hummus was a mere dollop. The dish didn't make sense. Two guests had the special Rib Eye and both were overcooked. The Medium Rare was medium and the Medium was well. One guest had the steak with the same result. The cook on all the proteins showed no attention to the way it was described in the menu. We don't plan to eat here again.

The food was really great, however the service was really lacking for the price. Had a reservation for 6:30 and weren’t seated until 6:50 and took over a hour to get our food. Additionally, our waiter never asked if we wanted additional drinks or refills. The staff never acknowledged us.

Leo was a fantastic server! The short rib and octopus were so delicious. The octopus prep may have been my favorite I’ve ever had. The only dish we didn’t love was the porcini ragu, it was bland - next time we’re hoping for the mushroom gnocchi to be on the menu. Ambiance is cool and cozy and drinks were delicious!

I put reservations for outside and was given a table inside. And, was told there was special reservations for outside? Even though there was an empty table outside that we can see was available.

The Raymond we have always come to is not the same. The service was very slow which we understand they are short staffed. However the food took awhile to come out. And our ribeye was cold by the time it came to the table. We were so hungry we just ate it. Dessert was lackluster.

Food and drinks were delicious. I ordered the skirt steak and it was nice and tender. My only complain was that they sat us next to the bar instead of their beautiful outdoor patio.
