Just fabulous. Fun, lively, great for people watching. Excellent, tasty comfort food. The decor is great -- ala 1930's diner. Raymond's never disappoints.

Very Busy during Sunday brunch but worth the wait. Good variety of breakfast and lunch food A little crammed and noisy but to be expected from the large turnout on a cold winter day. The Reuben and Cobb salad was my favorite
