    The food was delicious, but lukewarm. Upon leaving we told the waitress and she said she would let the chef know, but I am sure it wasn't his fault. The service was really poor. We had a reservation and several tables were available, but not clean. It took a while for us to get water and coffee (which was not hot). For some unknown reason they addressed my service requests but ignored my husband. The situation became laughable. We are going back because the food was good, and we have a gift card.

    The good - food was good and tasty. Staff was friendly. The bad - we waited for over an hour before being asked for orders, our order took forever to get to the table. Slowest service I've had at a restaurant in a long time. Probably won't return.

    Shhhhh don't tell! Anyone who is familiar with South Pas knows this is our little secret. We went early as a date night and enjoyed an excellent bottle of wine out on the patio. As usual, the food was delicious and the service is prompt and friendly. One of my favorite go-to places to eat locally- an absolute treasure. We always feel like we're escaping the city when we come here to relax and enjoy a great meal.

    We had a birthday celebration for my friend & initially service was very good, but then our waiter just left and we had very spotty service after that. Had to request things a # of times from other staff, including the check @ end of the nite. Otherwise all was good, but service could definitely improve.

    This restaurant has and remains a romantic get away for my husband and me. Nestled in Pasadena, you would never know you were in the middle of a city. Whether you sit inside in the cozy house or outside in the beautiful gardens, you feel like you are a world away. The food is beyond delicious and you are afforded the luxury of time and space to dine without being rushed.

    This was our second time coming for brunch, all three of us were very happy with our choices. We all really enjoy the crispy potatoes. Unfortunately, this time we were seated amid three groups celebrating various events and the noise level was up there!

    We have gone to the Raymond many times - it’s our family’s special occasion restaurant. This time was a disappointment. Our server didn’t even come to the table for a good ten minutes. We ordered a bottle of wine and he didn’t bring the drinks until well after our entrees arrived, a full 35 minutes after we sat down. The new menu is fine, and the food was good, but we were disappointed to see that all of our old favorites on the menu were gone - the short rib, the duck, and others. We ordered a dessert and we sat there with the dessert on the table and no utensils for quite a while. We are hopeful this was a glitch and the Raymond will return to form soon.

    Our first time there. This is a hidden gem. It’s a Craftsman house that’s so wonderful with a neat bar and patios. We had sea bass and a filet. As good or better than any place else in Pasadena area. Will definitely go back. Richard Y

    I remember the Raymond being pretty amazing and upscaled, but that was not my experience this week. Food was mediocre at best, our drinks didn’t come until well after our food which was about 30 minutes after we ordered them. Our waiter checked on us one time, that’s it. Pretty disappointing actually, especially for the money.

    The Raymond RestaurantResponded on November 16, 2022Hello! My name is Gina and I am the GM of the Raymond. I am sorry you had a disappointing experience. You dined this past Sunday for dinner? Brunch? I will be speaking to my Sunday team and finding out more details. Drinks should indeed come before food. In addition you should be better cared for. One check in is not enough. Thank you for reaching out. I appreciate your time.

    Made a reservation a few days in advance. It was first time here, and I didn’t know what to expect. I walked in and the hostess, had all my information in regards to the reservation. We were seated right away. My date and I, asked for suggestions regarding the menu. The waitress has made awesome suggestions and was very helpful. Desserts were amazing. Highly recommend the Butter cake! The overall vibe on the inside was very cozy and old fashioned cabin feel. Noise level might need a little work. We were seated inside but when someone was going in or out of the entrance, sometimes the door slams and make a loud thud. It sounds like someone fell on the floor. The door didn’t have a soft close mechanism. Aside from that, everything was perfect! Loved going here. Definitely will come back .

    Messed with me. I specifically arranged for the table in the patio in front of the fireplace. They insisted my party of 7 wouldn't fit but reserved a larger table next to it. When I got there they gave my reserved table to another party and the table I wanted by the fireplace had a party of 8. Don't plan for a special occasion here. Food isn't as good as it was, cocktails are great, and the servers are great.

    We had brunch on Sunday. Food and service outstanding. Very attentive server. We split everything: a fruit plate side, the carrot bread, the blueberry buttermilk waffle, and an omelet with crispy potatoes. Add two of the best Bloody Mary’s we’ve ever had, and one of us had coffee. All for under $90 (without tip). We were completely sated when we left. Valet is $8.

    Valet service was overwhelmed at 6:30 pm. We had to wait 15 minutes for the valet. Dinner was very noisy and a bit chilly on the patio. Could have used a few more heaters. Food was good but not particularly special.

    We had a round table in the far corner of the patio, which was quieter and better ventilated than the main body of the large patio - much appreciated by us for both safety and conversation for our party of 6 that included 2 family elders. Food was excellent, and everyone enjoyed their dishes. We got a slow start with service (largely our fault due to arriving in two batches), but all our servers were excellent and courteous, even when we inadvertently bumped up against our allotted time.

    Anniversary date. Got seated in the back by the back door, zero ambiance. If they are going to use that area absolutely need to improve. I went up front to be moved and moved us to outdoor fireplace space, much improved. My filet was okay my wife’s short rib excellent. We noticed pork belly off menu. We were fans of that. All n all experience was fine…

    Parking is terrible. Valet on Friday. Only one person servicing all cars. Most cars have to park on Fair Oaks which is very busy and very dark. Server was awful. Barely spoke English, not very attentive, asked for separate checks and he refused to do so until we demanded it, so manager had to step in and did provide separate checks. Drinks are overpriced for what you get and the amount for what you get. Food was average, nothing great. Will never return, too many other better restaurants in Pasadena and surrounding area.
