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

We came here for a birthday large party. Omelets, eggs Benedict, quiche, salads, baked eggs. All happy. Service is attentive and caring. Bloody Mary best I've ever had. Don't believe the haters. It's a great place and nice people good food and great value.

Sat on the beautiful Patio. Share a lot of different dishes. Service was warm and friendly. Parking can be difficult. It was a fun atmosphere to dine with friends.

I wrote a rave review of this restaurant in March, after a fabulous birthday dinner. My husband and I went back for our anniversary, expecting another fabulous and elegant dinner but we were sorely disappointed. We ate dinner on the new patio which is pleasant but not terribly elegant. The noise level is higher on the patio than inside the... More

Took my BFF to The Raymond for her birthday and we had a lovely time. Began by sitting outside for cocktails at their cozy, cool bar area. Great place by the way just to hang out with friends for drinks and if not too hungry you can order from their bar food menu. The house is absolutely adorable and lovingly... More
