We celebrated my brother and sister in law's wedding anniversary with a fantastic dinner at Raymonds. The reservations were made a few days in advance since the place is packed for the holidays. The cocktails were wonderful, my sil ordered Helen of Troy which was delicious and unique. I had my first 18 year old scotch. The wait staff was... More

I was with my mama and she said ohhh happy hour(like she was 22)! I hadn't been here in years and was like why not. Our server was very helpful, knowledgeable about the drinks, and the food was amazing! Especially the onion rings and Mac n' Cheese. But as someone who has family that owns restaurants, anytime the server has... More

Really nice bar. No bar seats allowed a more conversational atmosphere. Very enjoyable. We would be happy to come back.

After a visit to the Huntington in San Marino, the family went to the Raymond for dinner. Hidden behind foliage on Fair oaks, it is a it hard to find, but worth the wandering! It is a 20s-30s cottage with charming tree-covered grounds and outside patios. It retains its original rooms, all decorated in a time appropriate way, with nice,... More

I was very delighted when my family and friends surprised me with a visit to The Raymond yesterday. It's been about a year since the last time I had a meal here and the quality of the food is as good as ever. Though we had a very rare cool and rainy day in LA, the larger covered outdoor patio...

While the restaurant was not crowded, service was afflicted with long lags between courses. Portion for the salmon was a bit stingy, for the vegetable platter and lamb overwhelmingly large. Desserts were inventive and delicious,

Fantastic food in a beautiful environment. The hand harvested & perfectly prepared scallops simply melted in my mouth. :) Did I mention the pork belly yet!? OMG! Fantastic!!! That was my second time there and it has become one of my favorite in LA.

The patio is quite lovely, and the inside tables looked quite cozy as well. The food on the other hand was rather disappointing. The descriptions sounded innovative and appetizing, the presentation was well done, but the flavor was just not there. We tried multiple small plates, and other than the golden beats I would not recommend any. Service was adequate,... More
