    I had the short rib dinner and my husband had the shrimp scampi. Both dinners were delicious but they had just a little too much salt for me. I'm sure most people would love it but I tend to not put too much salt in my food. I'd still go back but I will try another dish. Fantastic drinks and service was especially great!

    We have been enjoying the Raymond for years. Our daughters boyfriend invited us to our favorite restaurant to “ask us a question”. The staff gave us a quite corner for his “Big Question” and he told her he preferred the steak and ambiance to Ruth Chris. We will continue to celebrate all our “Special Occasions” and weekend brunches at The Raymond 1886, our favorite secret location.

    We chose to eat in the garden area, both for beauty and safety. Service was excellent and I was delighted to enjoy a wonderful meal with my friends despite digestive issues, I was able to order a meal that worked and that I could enjoy.

    Soft shell crab appetizer at $25 was truly terrible. Service is spotty. Plates left on table. Some plates picked up at table before everyone was finished. Iced tea never arrived. Dessert was a butter cake with peach compote, vanilla ice cream and Chantilly. It had no ice cream, the cake was really a biscuit, and there was one small dollop of whipped cream. Entree of the short rib was delicious. I’m a neighbor and used to love this place but it’s going down hill a bit. Management staff is not great … lots of running around and no plan

    We opted for The Raymond for our anniversary dinner with some trepidation. Pleasantly surprised compared to our last visit about a year or so ago. Preparation of the beef fillet and sea bass was top notch and all ingredients very fresh. Also nice to find that The Raymond is one of the few restaurants that provides a little extra for a special dinner (dessert, in this case). Will book again in the near future.

    Triple digit heat with outdoor reservations available only. Nothing to help with the heat, mosquitoes, or flies in the outdoor seating area. Cocktails are a hit or miss, same with the food. Overall, should’ve been better at that price point. Also pointless to mention it’s for a special occasion.

    This place had been on our list for a WHILE and we finally made it out and so glad we did! Food was excellent (we tried the greek salad, the trout and the seabass), service was fantastic (Patrick), and ambiance (outside) was super quiet and low-lit and dreamy. Perfect for a hot summer day (great wine list!) Really really looking forward to going back :)

    Went to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday. Having been to the restaurant a few times before over the last couple of years , I was disappoInted this time around. We ordered the Tartare and it was overdressed and masked with a mustardy flavor and capers, both being strong flavors taking away from the natural flavor of the beef. Very disappointed in that dish. The primavera pasta sauce was pretty watery and it was just filled with a ton of peas and diced asparagus. It was like eating a last minute pasta dish I’d whip up at home. The soft shell crab wasn’t a good fried appetizer, the frying on it is nothing special and just soaked up the Vinaigrette dressing. The other times eating here I ordered the pheasant and a couple other things that were really tasty and was looking forward to celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday this time. Unfortunately, I think I’m a lot more uninterested in the future dishes now , having spent around $150 on drinks, two appetizers I didn’t care for , and sharing that pasta that was mediocre at best. Oh well!

    Drink and food order took way too long. Apparently, there was a banquet that took up the kitchen and servers time. We were not made aware of this until quite some time after ordering. They brought the tables pastries for waiting, however, it was 1 muffin and 1 danish for four people to split - same size as they gave to parties of 2. No one apologized nor did we have advance notice so we could decide if we wanted to wait. We were there for 3 hours. Not because of the company but because that’s how long it took for us to eventually get our food. At least if our drink orders would’ve come more often that could’ve helped but everything just took forever after ordering.

    I have been a longtime fan of this restaurant. The seating is great, both inside and out. Food is well prepared and service is good. I was disappointed by the high price of the valet parking, increased menu prices and the omission of the yummy bread basket at the beginning of the meal. I still enjoy the Raymond Restaurant but would keep these things in mind in the future.

    This is a great spot for brunch. Lots of egg oriented selection like asparagus and eggs with hollandaise and short rib tacos, in addition to the usual eggs anyway and omelet to order. Coffee is very good too, along with nice brunch cocktails and bubbles. The outdoor seating is cozy and spread out nicely. Great for couples and small groups alike

    We have been dining at The Raymond regularly in the 20 years we’ve lived in the area and have always enjoyed excellent service. Something was very off last night, service was poor, slow, and very disorganized. We hope that they work out whatever contributed to the poor quality of service and will give them another try sometime in the future.
