Absolutely loved the historic homeliness of The Raymond, rustic, casual, tranquil fountains and green garden setting. This contrasted with the somewhat disjointed service, our cocktail took ages to arrive, needed follow up but was delicious when it arrived. We'd asked for mayo but by the time it arrived the fries had gone cold. It would also have been great to see more vegetarian options.
We had a delightful time at The Raymond restaurant for a birthday dinner. The service to get to our table was a bit slow and the wait staff was not able to tell us what a few menu items were but the food and ambiance was great. The salad was refreshing but the vinaigrette could have a bit more tang to offset the fruit in the salad. The seabass and short rib were cooked to perfection and they even brought out two desserts for our birthday celebration.
A delicious dinner in South Pasadena in a historically important, beautiful, California Craftsman style former home. As the name suggests the history dates back to 1886 which is honestly really cool. It feels really homey and just like a well-designed craftsman in style and function. There is a ton of seating inside and outside and there is also ample parking around on the side streets. They also provide valet but we were able to find a space close. Our server Patrick was also really polite. I started off with the Steak Tartare and it was delicious. Mixing the yolk into the beef was my favorite part. For my entree I chose the Ocean Trout and it was very tasty. The goat cheese accompaniment was delicious with the fish. For dessert we chose the Raymond Classic and it was gone within a few minutes. It was sinfully sweet in the best sort of way. Overall a really nice dinner. I love the vibe of the place as well so it’s the sort of restaurant you will want to stay awhile with your guests. I plan to be back soon.
Old restaurant in the city of Passdena, situated in a big old house. Very cozy and cute little restaurant. The food is a mix of everything, from Mexican to French , we had brunch on this particular day but everything tasted good. It was a bit crowded so the wait was a bit longer but service was great and attentive.
Wonderful ambiance. Excellet custom craft cocktails. We orderee the veal bolognese, sea bass, and had the steal tartare. I can not choose which part of the meal was best. It was all devine. The entire menu was proper. We will be back.
