Celebrated my friend’s birthday here and was not disappointed! We did a bunch of small plates and it was honestly perfect. Oh and the cocktails live up to the hype!

Early Mother’s Day celebration for our family. Also first outing since pandemic. Menu more limited than pre pandemic and everyone tried their best to take care of customers. Very nice staff

We were celebrating Mother’s Day & the food was amazing! Our server was not so great, he had a cold vibe, not warm & welcoming like he was having a bad day.

The food was absolutely amazing, service can be a bit slow at times, but there are lots of people, so it's understandable. The ambiance is great, we sat by the fireplace in a slightly chilly evening, it was perfect!

We were so happy to have found this hidden gem, in fact so happy that I think it will become our new place to go. There is not a single thing that I would change. Everything is spectacular... from the menu (including cocktails and courses), to the staff and service, and of course, the aura of the old charming house. Can’t wait to go back for more!

The ambiance is beautiful here but the service was lacking. Patrick was our server and he just didn’t have it. I’ve been here a lot and the other servers were much friendlier and attentive. Call ahead to make sure they don’t run out of burgers!

Restaurant seem a little deserted. Not sure if it’s the bouncing back from Covid. The service was just OK. We asked our server for a side plate 5 times and we still didn’t get it until we asked another server for it.
Valet parking $5 but you can easily park on the side street and walk.
Food: Egg Benedict with Avocado is very delicious, not overpowering if you eat just 2. Pastrami was a big meal but taste ok.
Not wowed but OK place. I would not drive that much to go in for the Brunch though because nothing on the plate you can’t get elsewhere. We actually ordered the assortment pastries and never got it, glad it was not billed either.
We sat by the fireplace, will love the fireplace if it was a really cold day. Beautiful garden though! Will be perfect for a date night.
Maybe I will try out the Dinner someday if I’m in the neighborhood.
We made a request for a birthday candle but was never even mentioned even though the host who seated us acknowledged the birthday.
Overall, it didn’t feel special going here for a Brunch, but it sure is a nice place if you want a date night in a nice garden.

Ambience was awesome, and the whole plating of the food was minimalist and nice. Portions could be a bit bigger but not all steaks are the same. Food was however amazing and I would highly recommend.

My wife and I haven’t been out to a restaurant without the kids in over a year and it was wonderful. We are outside on the back patio next to the fireplace and it felt very safe and actually romantic and fun. The food was amazing. I highly recommend it.

It was great but this is the 2nd time in 1 week that I came for dinner wanting a burger and you were out. Wish Our waiter had told us what you were out of when we sat down. I don't understand how a restaurant is always out of ground beef especially with a 6:30 reservation. Other than that, it was great.

The Raymond has the best happy hour in town. From 4-6pm during the weekend, great cocktails for $7. No happy hour food unfortunately but the drinks are the best.

Overall, we had an excellent experience at The Raymond and will likely return. The only point of criticism is that we were put off by the wait staff coming over to take our plates very quickly and frequently. We felt rushed.

We went there for brunch for the first time, we typically go for steak dinner however wasn’t disappointed. The chilakiles I ordered were very tasty, however the egg sandwich my husband ordered was very garlicky and had not other flavors the balance out. Other than that everything else was great! Still love the restaurant!

This is a great Covid "safe-ish" outdoor place to eat. I like going to places/building that have been reappropriated. Love eating in a building that has been reimagined. The Raymond is a beautiful place to eat, but the food is not well balanced. I find that the proteins are often lacking in flavor and the favors come mostly from the sauces which are overpowering. Most foods here are overly salty for my taste, but the portions are generally well done.
I have always felt that the staff here does a good job, not hovering over you, but always keeping an eye out for you. To me, it's a little bit like going to Disneyland. you love the environment, and you eat what's offered there because that's what's available, and it's fine food just not great food.

Food was absolutely delicious. However, The staff seemed annoyed that we had 2:00 reservations. I made my reservations online but called to confirm them the next day and no one told me the kitchen closes at 2;00 for a mid day switch to the dinner menu, like the waiter claimed it did. We felt rushed to order and he seemed in disbelief when I said I made reservations for 2:00. Asking me, “really, you did?” After rushing to order I see another table being sat after 2;00 who also seemed like they were rushed to order. Annoying. The staff should get on the same page as the hostess and kitchen before being snarky to guests.
