Hello Friends,

Unfortunately, due to the current and ongoing pandemic, we have been forced to suspend dine-in operations for the time being.

Thank you for your interest in and support of the Raymond 1886 during these unprecedented times, and we hope to welcome you once more to our establishment once public health officials deem it safe to do so.

In the meantime, we are offering Takeout and Delivery service for food, cocktails, and good cheer every Tuesday through Sunday. We hope to feed you soon!

Cheers,
The Raymond 1886 Team

We had an amazing brunch at The Raymond, I took my mom and soon to be mother in law and we received the best service. Everything was delicious, the chilaquiles, pancakes, breakfast potatoes, mimosas, everything. Our waiter was exceptional, and even allowed us to sit at the most private table in it's own corner away from the crowd which made us all feel a lot safer taking off our masks. This is a beautiful restaurant and they do everything well, can't wait to come here again when this lockdown is over!

This is my second time and they didn’t disappoint! Good wines by the glass and great bartender- my martini was perfect!

It was my birthday and they made me feel very special!

I attended a lunch at the Raymond just before the current shut down for COVID. It was delightful -- brunch on Saturday. Food was quite good and the people were terrific.

Place was nice, had hard chairs and light bulbs out on the patio. Experience was not worth the value, but it has a very secluded dining area, but we could smell marijuana being smoked from the lot next door and were offered an apology by the waiter. I won’t be returning, unfortunately.

The Raymond offered us a most safe outdoor dining environment during Covid and for that we were grateful. The cocktails are inventive and well executed. The wine list, Covid Limited and not very attractive even for a wine-o. The food menu was again, limited, but was diverse and tasty if not for touch over-seasoned. The bottom line, with the rest of LA County dining shut down this represents one of the best Pasadena has to offer.

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!

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.

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

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.

The best chicken curry in town. The very large covered patio was a bonus, as the weather was threatening rain. The service was perfect.
