    This is the first time I’m commenting on less than stellar service. Once our server greeted us she was no where to be found. We saw her three times in the 2 and a half hours we were there. We had to flag down or get up to find someone to find out where our drinks were, get more coffee, get an egg order corrected. The food was great! This was a birthday celebration and our server did bring glasses of champagne on the house just before we left. Maybe just an off day. We will be back, and hope the service is better.

    We were seated in the back patio near the kitchen the door was open and we could hear the dishes clanking and staff talking! For a two hundred dollar a more relaxing experience. If we return I will insist on a table in the front patio or the side patio we saw as we left. ! Also, I order shrimp scampi it was more a marinara pasta with small pieces of shrimp! The Sea bass was lost in the black rice.

    The food and service was outstanding. There were 3 in our party and each person ordered a different dish. My short rib was the best I have EVER had!! The sea bass and scampi dishes were deliciously over the top! They have three outdoor patios with garden atmosphere and ambiance. Great restaurant!

    Trout dish on bed of soggy vegetables. Short ribs lacked flavor. Servers seemed confused as to when to remove empty plates before main dish arrived. Seemed out of sync. When main dishes arrived, empty salad / appetizer plates were still on table, causing an awkward exchange of plates.

    The restaurant seemed slammed. We were there for dinner and were given Brunch menus -- twice. It took a VERY looong time for someone to take our order. The food was good (as always) but the evening was marred by the fact that there was a table of 10 young women celebrating something seated right by us. Sometimes we could barely hear each other. I've always had a good experience at the Raymond, so this was rather disappointing.

    Not as impressive as I had hoped. Food was OK. I had thought it would be a semi fancy date night place. There was a dog right behind me, and I love dogs but not other peoples dogs w long fur flying around when I’m eating. Maybe I had the wrong impression of it. I will not be returning.

    Having been led to believe, by the Raymond’s website and prices, that it is an upscale restaurant, we reserved to celebrate our 45th anniversary. However, when I announced our reservation; it rang no bell for the hostess, who asked if we wanted indoors or out. I reminded her we asked to be seated someplace quiet so we could reminisce, and this was honored. However, we were immediately disappointed at the drab, unappealing appearance of our table: essentially a wooden breakfast nook. No white tablecloth, candle: nothing to underscore this was, for us, a special occasion. Attention was nonexistent: the hostess was glued to her cellphone. Indeed, after we had time to peruse and discuss the menu and select appetizers, entrées, and wine, she was still at it. Finally, my wife waved and called out to get her attention: eventually a waiter appeared. I should also note that no employee – hostess or wait staff – wore masks (Most arriving diners wore them). Our appetizers were softshell crab and baguette; the crab was good, but the root vegetable with it was undercooked, hard. The butter and baguette had good flavor: the bread ends were rocks. Our entrees were sea bass for my wife, shrimp scampi for me. Apparently, her order was ready early, because the bass was tepid, not hot, (mainly it was black rice). By contrast, my shrimp scampi was very good: everything was flavorful and enough to share to offset all her rice. Our waiter announced an anniversary dessert – a nice touch. However, as it arrived, the employee announced, “Happy Birthday!” Such a lack of coordination and attention was consistent all evening. But the wine I selected – Walt Pinot Noir – was delicious; in fact, the one truly tasty element of our $240 tab. Given the lack of ambience, some kitchen fails, and an unmasked, inattentive staff, we feel dinner was a loss, something we’ve been trying to laugh off. While I may return for happy hour someday, I will definitely warn any friends off of dining here, sorry to s

    Great food, but terrible customer service. We didn't feel welcomed. I felt rushed. Plates are taken very quickly. We didn't have "time" to enjoy the full experience. We ended up paying our bill and leaving unsatisfied from poor service.

    Service was good but slow. We were seated immediately upon arriving for our reservation but it was 20-25 min before we were able to get a new waiter assigned to us, the original one still had not come by to get our drink order. Food was delicious and cocktails good but everything took a while to come out. Beautiful patio and the staff outside was as accommodating as they could be.

    What a beautiful place. We’ve been to this restaurant a few times and this instance really felt like the whole staff had found their groove. The food was phenomenal. Service was attentive. We are always fans of the themed cocktail menus and the most recent outer space themed offerings were some of the best we’ve ever had.

    We have previously enjoyed our experiences at the Raymond but now experienced very slow and disjointed service, and food that was not as illustrated on the menu. The octopus was previously our favorite dish, but this time amounted to a plate of friend calamari that was no better than a local sports bar. The menu is very expensive, and not at all worth it considering the lackluster service and food provided. We will not be returning.

    The food was very good, but the service left a lot to be desired. It took a long time to be served and the waiter never checked on us after we received our food. The hostess was not friendly and seemed more concerned with accommodating the needs of people who brought their dogs (which were not getting along with dogs at an adjacent table on the patio) than accommodating the needs of my elderly mother, who has mobility limitations. The reservation space should make it more clear if you are reserving an indoor or outdoor table.

    Sunday brunch is our favorite. We got seated in the sunroom and could open the windows. The omelet any way with three choices to add was so good. Our favorite. The blueberry waffle is so yummy. Very affordable.
