Great local spot in Pasadena with cute outdoor patio ! The brunch items all sounded amazing and the Fritata came out superb. Cocktails were great too!

Steak was very salty. Everything else is mediocre. They charged $125 per person for Valentines Day and an additional 20% for service fee. This was never communicated to us prior to arrival. I understand we have a pandemic and we need to support small business, but if I knew that was the quality of food I’d get for the price I pay I rather take my money to a hole in the wall restaurant and support them instead.

No ambience setting, not even a candle on the table. Definitely not a date night spot. I have not tried the brunch but apparently that’s what they’re known for. The pre-fix menu for Valentine’s Day was only average and therefore extremely overpriced. Clunky west elm style furniture, questionable music, rushed service (that I didn’t mind considering what a flop it was). Again, I’m only channeling my inner Karen due to the fact that this shouldn’t be on your date night shortlist. Average wine list (most French or NoCal). The food feels French in technique but definitely not done to my liking. Not a good place for people with acquired taste who might expect a European dining experience. The crowd was not fun either so not an interesting vibe. Mostly local extremely casually dressed middle aged and older people.

Raymond's is the place to be if you're looking for good food and ambiance. Their brunch menu is not expensive and tastes good. Robert A, our server, is awesome. He knows what we need even before we ask. Top notch!

Normally love the Raymond but this time they were out of most of their entrees by 7:30pm. It was valentines weekend and was very disappointing.

The Raymond delivered the goods on Valentines Day to my wife and me, even with the C19 protocols in place. Friendly service staff, lots of outdoor heaters by nearly every table (other venues are scarce and stingy even refusing to mover them close to us) and excellent food. Highly recommended.

We have been going to the Raymond for over 10 years and this is the first time that I have been disappointed.

- The food was over seasoned, I had to scrape the pork with my knife.
- They ran out of 3 of the main dishes by 7:00 PM (not valentines day either)
- The food took a long time to arrive.
- Usually the staff is very professional and knowledgeable; this time our server didn't appear to have ever worked at a nice restaurant before and was trying to make up for it by being overly polite.
- The music was too loud and the music style did not match the ambience.

All this was so surprising that we asked if there were new owners or a new chef or if they were downgrading from fine dining to casual dining (The Water Grill in DTLA did this to appeal to a larger mass of people).

Will have to give it another try and see what happens.

Food was great! I just wish they had an option for bottomless mimosas. Otherwise, it’s $12 per mimosa, which is kind of pricey but we did it anyway. I had the breakfast burrito and our table shared chilaquiles and the blueberry pistachio pancakes. Absolutely no complaints!

We have been going to The Raymond for years, and I think this was the best meal we ever had there. The chef is amazing, the staff welcoming and friendly and the cocktails are the most outstanding in Los Angeles. Nathan the bartender never disappoints. And in this time of COVID, The Raymond has a beautiful outdoor sitting area.

It was amazing! We were seated by the fireplace. Made a reservation on opentable. The cocktails were on point. I had The Contender-hamburger. Their special blend of ground beef, the pickled onions are a nice touch. The garlic fries were legit and crispy. 👍🏽👍🏽

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!

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.
