Very cozy setting in what was once an actual home. The history of the Raymond goes back to 1887 as a hotel but the hotel has since been long gone due to tragedies. The food was exceptional. We had brought our own wine. I ordered the Crisy Maple Leaf Duck. The potato emulsion was amazingly creamy and smooth unlike anything I have ever had. The duck breast with some skin was cooked perfectly and seasoned just right. My boyfriend ordered a lamb dish that came with both rack of lamb and lamb shank. He really enjoyed his meal and said the meat was very good.

The Raymond recently added a quaint outdoor eating area, patio if you will. It's quite nice and cozy. We went there for brunch and I really enjoyed the brunch menu!
