It was built in 1866, burnt down, rebuilt in the time of the depression, sold for land and the only thing left is the "guest cottage" which is huge. It is like a house on inside with different areas for dining. The outside has a huge deck with a nice subdued waterfall. The service was great!! The waitress was quite... More

What a great menu! The chef is very inventive with taste pairings. We had nine appetizers to share and every one was a delight - ask for the pork tacos, which are on the bar menu but not the main menu - there seems to be a bit of apple or something sweet which nicely offsets the side of hot...

When you are tired of the same old boring meal, go here. They have such a diverse and interesting menu that I think I will be going back until I have tried everything! The stone fruit and buratta salad was out of this world.

Took my mother to the Raymond after Easter services hoping for a special day & meal. First off , when I made reservations they took my credit card and informed me that I would be charged $25 per person if I did not show for Easter Brunch. When we arrived there were empty tables and plenty of room for walk... More

I had been wanting to eat at this historic restaurant which is in the caretaker's cottage for the long gone Raymond Hotel. We had reservations for Easter dinner for the patio. Charming interior with lots of nice art. We entered The empty restaurant and asked for a table outside per our reservation; we were sent to the bar, where apparently,... More

We waited 1/2 hour for a bloody mary .The wait didnt worth it! No taste of votka and no special cocktail for the price! Waiter and overall service wasn't great. Just for the price the entire experience was terrible. Eggs benedict are similar to an average breakfast place and the patio is near freeway...car noise bad music

We had a Sunday lunch with fresh and tasty salads, and excellent deserts. A nice secluded and green place, despite being next to a major road.

We recently ate for the first time at The Raymond in Pasadena, for brunch, with about 9 of our family members. The patio area that we were all seated in, was such a nice area, very pleasant, nicely shaded so the sun wasn't beating down on us. All the staff were very attentive to us, we ordered our food, and... More
