My son and daughter in law hosted a birthday party here for my birthday and her mom's birthday...April 1! We had about 40 people out in the covered patio. It was wonderful. The service was impeccable, the food was good and the atmosphere beautiful. While this was a pretty expensive event with lots of wine and good food, it was... More

I had heard very nice things about the Raymond for many years, so my wife and I took the opportunity to go there for lunch when other business brought us into the area. The parking situation, first of all, is daunting. There are some spaces on the narrow, one-way street that the restaurant is on and a very small parking... More

Did you ever see the Peanuts cartoon where Charlie Brown goes to kick the football that Lucy holds and every time he goes to kick it she pulls it away and he falls flat on his back? That's the Raymond to me. Every time I go I keep thinking this time it's going happen and I'm going to kick it.... More

This eclectic and cozy spot has a great ambience. I've been here with co-workers for lunch and friends for happy hour. They serve some of the best craft cocktails I've ever had. Not only are they strong, they are delicious. Their food is high quality and healthy as well.

It's been a long time since I left a restaurant embarrassed for my city, but that is the way I felt after leaving the Raymond for Sunday brunch today with out of town guests. The restaurant has the potential to be a comfortable and casual place with historical charm. We sat in the back surrounded by windows and the setting... More

We stayed at a nearby B&B that recommended the Raymond Restaurant. It was within walking distance to our B&B so we gave it a try. We found the menu to be a bit strange... I'm not sure if that was because we were just looking at the bar menu? Anyway, we ended up getting a few items to share. We... 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.
