    The Raymond recently changed up their menu. A couple dishes — the sea bass and the roasted acorn squash — were very good. The Beef Cheeks dish is I’ll conceived and definitely to be avoided. They combined a fatty meat with a bad burnt rich mole and a piece of over-cooked pasta. There was no balance. At best, it could have been a side-bite to accompany a steak or other beef dish. The cocktails were great as always.

    First time there. Made reservation two weeks ago. Reserved the patio. Patio is dark/damp space (see pictures), so dress warm if temps are cool. Ordered fruit plate, cinnamon roll, omelet, and burger. Food was good. Not outstanding, but perfectly fine. Fries and cinnamon roll were our favorites. Other than hostess that greeted us, service was great. Multiple persons served our table and all were excellent. Attaching pics of the patio space

    We had a lovely brunch on the patio with outstanding service. The brunch menu options were interesting, playful and prepared perfectly. The brunch cocktail options were equally inspired. We look forward to our next visit.

    We dined out in the patio area, which was warm and pleasant even in the rain. Some nice decor touches out there too. Exceptional service all around, we felt cared for the entire meal. And our food was wonderful – my seven year old loved both his bolognese and my trout, and we both enjoyed the tempura maitake. Definitely get the bread, it's warm and soft inside with a crisp crust and great housemade butters. Nothing to dislike here, we'll definitely be back.

    The set menu on Christmas Eve was overpriced, and not very good. The steak that they said was a ribeye was obviously filet mignon, the lava cake dessert was cold, and the soup was just ok (mine has no cheese but the others did.) Will not be going again.

    would have liked candles on the table - the light was a bit low but don’t think the solution is brightening the whole space & ruining the atmosphere.

    Food was gorgeous. Service was average possibly due to staff spread too thin. We sat outside and heat lamps were not positioned correctly. They really should be behind a seat such that when you turn to talk to someone to your right or left, there isn't a blast of heat coming at your face. Staff appeared a bit put out when asked to tune the lamps. My wife ended up with a burning sensation on one of her cheeks. Raymond has always been our go-to for special occasions but the experience this time was a bit disappointing.

    We had to cancel our Christmas Eve reservations so we made reservations last night for the 23rd. The menu wasn’t what was offered for Christmas Eve BUT it was STILL OUTSTANDING. We started with drinks and a bowl of harissa olives, and warm bread with two specialty butters that were silky and yummy. We both had the Gem Lettuce salad that was plentiful and delicious. Then we both selected the Roasted Acorn squash with forbidden rice entree. It- was- to - die - for. One of the most delicious vegetarian dishes I’ve ever had! The flavors were such a culinary delight. Finished with dessert. The service was attentive and very pleasant. We sat outside by the fireplace and it was comfortable the entire evening. Highly recommend The Raymond.

    What a delightful evening at the Raymond! We thoroughly enjoyed a delicious meal on a chilly evening — the pasta bolognese and Mary’s chicken were our choices. They were preceded by tasteful cocktails and a loaf of steaming bread with the mot amazing assortment of herb butters. Angel made sure that we were happy and provided excellent guidance on menu recommendations. We rounded out the experience with not one, but two desserts — the pot du crème and crème brûlée did not disappoint. Time well spent with friends and a lovely place to celebrate birthdays— thanks to everyone at the Raymond!

    We had an excellent brunch on a Sunday during their busy time of the day - noon. Valet was quick and, with a reservation, was seated promptly. Then we waited an inordinate amount of time, with menus in hand to order our drinks. Then we waited an inordinate amount of time to receive our drink order - Bloody Marys which were excellent - and finally order food. The food took about 45 minutes. All 4 dishes were excellent and very well prepared. The star was definitely Eggs Benedict but my breakfast burrito was definitely a contender. Would highly recommend and we will definitely return after the holiday season.

    We had a wonderful dinner for my husband’s birthday, sitting in the cozy back patio amid holiday decor and a crackling fire and heated lamps. Starting with yummy cocktails, carrot ginger soup and a pork taco Happy Hour appetizer, we moved on to trout and Mary’s Chicken and Brussels sprouts. All was delicious! And they brought my husband a chocolate mousse dessert for his birthday, which was very generous. The portion sizes were perfect and the whole experience was top notch, with impeccable and courteous service, even including the friendly valet. Everything was superb and we can’t wait to go back!

    The food was delicious, but lukewarm. Upon leaving we told the waitress and she said she would let the chef know, but I am sure it wasn't his fault. The service was really poor. We had a reservation and several tables were available, but not clean. It took a while for us to get water and coffee (which was not hot). For some unknown reason they addressed my service requests but ignored my husband. The situation became laughable. We are going back because the food was good, and we have a gift card.

    Shhhhh don't tell! Anyone who is familiar with South Pas knows this is our little secret. We went early as a date night and enjoyed an excellent bottle of wine out on the patio. As usual, the food was delicious and the service is prompt and friendly. One of my favorite go-to places to eat locally- an absolute treasure. We always feel like we're escaping the city when we come here to relax and enjoy a great meal.

    We had a birthday celebration for my friend & initially service was very good, but then our waiter just left and we had very spotty service after that. Had to request things a # of times from other staff, including the check @ end of the nite. Otherwise all was good, but service could definitely improve.
