Best Date Spot for the Grundge Crowd with Kids – Following the advice of this web site I took someone here on a "First Date". The food was excellent. The service was beyond reproach. The experience was going real well ................ Then, no less then six twentysomething couples with infants were seated right next to us. One mother proceded to change a diaper and the noise level in the room doubled. I won't be dining here again for a long time and especially not on a first date.
Bridal shower brunch was fantastic! – I had a my bridal shower in the outside garden, and it was beautiful, the food was delicious and the service was great! I will definitely be back...and hopefully soon!
Great atmosphere! – Yummm! Tthe food here was very VERY good, and the ambiance was worth every penny. My only complaint was that it took quite a while for the bottle of wine we ordered to be served, and though I'd asked for a dry riesling I was given one that was quite sweet. Not that it's that big of a deal, but I did expect better, and it did have an impact. That said, the food was delicious and the chocolate moelleux was to die for....really, don't miss it! And I LOVED the atmosphere.
Good romantic restaurant – Very good food but very expensive. Quiet, romantic restaurant that will impress your date but at a very high cost. If it's something special - go for it. Food is different every night but always very good. Reservations a must anytime of day or day of the week.
Great place with lots of charm – This is a great romantic date spot but bring your wallet. The Raymond is expensive but it is worth the price. The wait staff is very friendly and helpfull, not at all stuck up. I had the Tuna Tar-Tar which was excetpional and the bone-in Rib-eye which was also exceptional. Overall it was a delightful dinner; the atmosphere, food and everything else was top-notch. I am excited to return to try the Sunday brunch.
Great Food, Great Service, Great Atmosphere – I took my wife here for an anniversary brunch. We both fell in love with everything about it. My wife couldn't get enough of the Raymond Curry and said the asparagus was the best she had ever had. The Scandanavian Eggs were an inventive twist on eggs Benedict for someone who isn't crazy about poached eggs. The service was impressive. The wait staff anticipated our needs to perfection. Because it is apparently a house that has been turned into a restaurant, the dining rooms are small, but they are beautifully decorated and perfectly lit. The atmosphere really was great for kicking off our first anniversary celebration. It probably isn't great for big business parties or small kids, but it is perfect for a quiet romantic meal.
Best Filet Mignon ever! – Seriously folks, these people do not joke about their Filet Mignon. It has to be the most tender piece of meat I've ever had. It beats out the rest, as far as Filets go. They've also got other great items on the menu though, if you don't like meat.
Amazing "Tasting Menu"! – After revisting The Raymond Restaurant my husband and I truly were amazed with our dining experience. It has always been a special place for us, but on our last visit to the restaurant the "chef's tasting menu" impressed us so much that we plan to visit regularly and look forward sharing it with our friends.
As good as expected! – I went to try this restaurant based on the good reviews of the Zagat Survey and it turned out to be as good as expected. Both service and food were excellent. I can imagine having brunch at the patio on a sunny day would be wonderful.
Expensive, Horrible, Bland – Nothing good to say, from start to finish it was just bad, bad, bad. Another boring overpriced Pasadena restaurant.
