Lovely!

What a lovely restaurant with a true history in a good location. The menu was a bit limited, but we were able to find good options that satisfied us. It's mostly breakfast/brunch items with a few salads and sandwiches to choose from during the day. The service is stellar and we recommend... read more

Love love LOVE this place and it's adorable, dog friendly patio! Came here for our anniversary and have been raving about it to anyone who will listen ever since. We had the tandoori roasted cauliflower with cucumber yogurt sauce for an appetizer. Absolutely divine. I could just eat a couple of these and be happy, but what was to come... More

We had a wonderful dinner here last night with out of town guests. They loved the ambiance and we all loved the food. We especially want to comment on our server, Grace, who was wonderful! She recommended great foods, cocktails and wine and was so patient and pleasant. It really makes a difference to a great experience! The drinks were... More

The food was absolutely amazing. Well done by any foodie's standard. Plan on $60 a head before wine. Take you time here and order in courses.

I would say the Raymond Restaurant was "very good." My husband and I went for a well deserved date night. We sat at a nice little table and the waiter was very attentive. Food was good, but not spectacular. I am sure we would go back again, but we might see what else is out there first.

A solid 4 star restaurant- we would definitely return. The location is a bit hidden, limited parking. When we arrived we had to valet. Echoing one of the other reviewers, we valeted our car only to find it located literally 3 feet from where we left it when we went to pick it up after dinner. The sign said $4... More

My first time here and we enjoyed a great lunch. We made reservations, and parked on the main street. 2 of us had turkey sandwiches that were very good, on dark, sweet bread with sprouts We added the avocado and the bacon which was delightful (about $15). The other had the salmon salad with yellow beats, and she licked the... More

A rustic lodge slightly downhill from street level hides a great Bloody Mary, tasty egg dishes, and a covered outdoor seating area that feels like a cool oasis - a perfect place for a brunch date! (And many dishes can be modified to suit your diet, upon request.)

We ate here for brunch with two other couples and everyone liked the place. It has kind of a classy, elegant feel yet casual. There was street parking (but it's just down off the street so hard to see) and they had valet. We ate outdoors on the patio. Everyone enjoyed their breakfast except the Huevos Montuleños so I would... More
