Very beautiful place with really good food and service. However it is very stuffy inside as soon as you walk in. They should invest in some good air condition and they would have an A+ business!

The Raymond is one of my favorite "special" places to go with my new husband. It has been a while since we've been but last time it was just wonderful. The food is delicious and the home-type intimate atmosphere is comfortable. Not stuffy like other places. They used to offer a souffle dessert that you had to order at the beginning of your meal, I don't know if they still have them. Last time I went I wanted one and they were sold out. If you can get one, order it!

I took my girlfriend here for Valentines Day based on an email from Citysearch featuring the restaurant and the great reviews that have been given here.

I found the place fairly easily and parked using their free valet service (they drive very fast in reverse, people were laughing nervously as they watched their cars get backed up to them at full speed when we were leaving). We sat on the patio, which was enclosed by clear plastic, but it was still kind of cold despite the heaters. The waitstaff eventually closed off the openings they were using to come in and out. I felt sorry for them having to unstick Velcro while holding a large tray of food.

The service took a very long time, and while it is understandable that having a packed house could make the service slow, one would think having a pre-fixe menu would speed things up. This was a five course meal, with three of the courses having two choices and the entree having three choices. I also do not think it being a full house or having a fixed menu should affect knowing which table ordered what meal and in what order. There was a big problem with the servers not being able to identify what course belonged to what table. The dinner took about three hours from being seated to asking for the bill (the bill came out quickly).

Despite the long wait times, the waitstaff was very friendly if not a bit flustered. When the food finally did come out, it was presented well, but tasted ok. The wine list looked good, but we didn't order wine and their cocktail menu is very limited (no pear vodka?). Our first course, the amuse-bouche, was a cute little scallop/shrimp thing on a small cracker. It tasted alright for a one-biter. For the second course I ordered the scallop and my girlfriend ordered the beet salad. Both were fairly bland. The scallop was a bit dry and the beets didn't have all that much flavor. All-in-all very plain. Next course we both had the soup. It was this potato cream soup with truffle and it was delicious. It felt good going down considering the cold night, but it also had the right amount of zest and spice. We both enjoyed that one. Next came the main course. We both got the Beef Tenderloin, although in hindsight, I wish I had gotten the Alaskan Salmon instead. The meat was warm, not hot and more chewy than I believe it should have been, but I did like the root vegetable mash that the steak was situated on, tasted close to mashed potatoes, but I liked pointing out the vegetable I could taste in it. It was a little game between us. Finally we had dessert. My girlfriend got the apple one that was like apple pie a la mode, and I had a very lemony desert with a citrus broth that grew on me. Both desserts were great.

The restaurant threw in a couple nice touches for Valentine's including a very long stem red rose for each lady. The bill came out with a small chocolate heart with Happy Valentine's Day written on it and the letter R (presumably for Raymond - though my girlfriend, who's name also starts with an R, insisted the chocolate was hers. I still ate most of it).

In conclusion, I found the waitress and the staff to be very pleasant and friendly, the food was slug and miss (citysearch won't let me use the word I was going to use - three letters to replace slug), the disorganization and time to table was very disappointing.

I visited the raymond with my girlfriend on Valentines, And I cant say that I was impressed. It seems like the place was not prepared at all for the valentines rush. The evening started with us waiting for 20 min at out table before we spoke to our waiter. Then bus boys kept bringing out our food and they didnt know who it belonged to so they would go from table to table asking everyone if the food belonged to them. When our main course arrived it was cold to the touch,so since we dont like cold steak we sent it back. Once our food arrived it was good, But nothing about this place made me say wow except the bill. When you spend over 300 dollars for a dinner you dont expect service to be an issue. I wish I would have taken my date somewhere else.

I have been to the Raymond on two different occasions with different people each time. It is a nice group spot...for a small group (6-8 people) although the restaurant is not very large, it is just the right size so that you don't feel crowded and you don't have to yell to hear the person next to you. The decor/ ambience is warm and inviting, allowing for an overall enjoyable experience. The service is good...the wait staff are friendly and right on with their suggestions on items to eat and drink.

My partner and I have driven by the historic place for years, but we had never tried it so we decided to go during the week on a Tuesday evening. The decor was reflective of its history and the food was good, but the service was definitely sub par, which brought down the overall experience of this establishment. The restaurant was not very busy, but our waiter was not attentive at all. He did not ever once stop by our table to ask us how was our appetizer or meal, or if we needed anything. We also had a bottle of sparkling water, but our empty glasses were never topped off by any of the servers during our evening. For the price that we paid for our dinner, we would have expected much better service. While the food was good, I would rather spend my dollars elsewhere with service to match, especially in this great city of restaurant paradise.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

After revisting The Raymond Restaurant my husband and I truly were amazed with our dining experience.

I really wanted to like this restaurant. It's a very cute place and a nice setting for dates. However, I was so disappointed with the Afternoon Tea. It was a little pricey, especially since our tea came from TEA BAGS. When I have tea and sandwiches, I expect loose leaf tea. (I should've gone to Peet's for a nice pot of tea.) The finger sandwiches weren't spectacular either. I haven't gone back for their other offerings, but I suggest that you don't go for their Afternoon Tea.

PROS: ambiance, details
CONS: pricey, use tea bags

The Raymond is a historical treasure of Pasadena who has recently had vast improvements in their menu. It has always been more that just casual dining, but in the past few years their menu has really gotten a lot better. The prices are fairly high, but now it's worth it. The tastes and and combinations of flavors are exquisite. The staff is nice, a little stand-offish, but not bad. And the wine selection is great also. I definitely recommend the Raymond for a nice brunch or elegant dinner. If you go in the summer be sure to sit on the back patio. The front patio is nice, but you hear all the street traffic.

The Raymond's low lighting, intimate setting, and wonderfully diverse cuisine is great for a treat on an anniversary or birthday. The food is terrific, take the waiter's recommendation. Also, the staff knows a lot about the wine they serve and what flavors go best with their dishes. Although a bit expensive, it goes with the territory for a nice meal. You would be surprised what you'll try and like at this restaurant if you let yourself.

I took my fiancee' here once for Valentine's Day, and the food was outstanding. It's like eating in someone's Pottery-Barn styled home, with its hardwood floors and home-like setting. It's tucked behind a bridge freeway and looks like a bungalow from the outside, but the experience is one-of-a-kind. They make a special Valentine's menu -- it was pricey, but worth it.

Excellent cuisine. Lovely atmosphere - indoor & outdoor.
The menu constantly changing. Delicious desserts.
Great for special occasions like anniversaries, and holidays. We went there on New Year's Eve. They have different dinner times & you can ring in the new year with that particular time zone - very clever.
FYI - NOT a place to bring young children.
Quite expensive, but it's a fancy gourmet restaurant so you expect that.

PROS: Very good cuisine & ambience.

I was brought here to celebrate a special occasion. The restaurant decor is charming, the cuisine delicious, the service was excellent. The only thing that detracted from the experience was a nearby family whose children were running around a lot and were too loud. I would not recommend bringing young children here for the sake of the guests trying to quietly dine around you.

It's been a while since I've eaten here, so I can't speak to specifics, but I definitely enjoyed my experience. Great interior, and the food and service were quite good. Seems like one of those little places that consistently provides a better overall experience than some of the big fancy restaurants.
