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

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

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.
