Restaurant Review

Raymond's is a back in time, 1930s brasserie that originally began in Montclair and continued as a popular breakfast tradition for more than 15 years.

The decor is old time diner, but not of the Doo-Wop 1950s tradition. Instead, it's done in a 1930s style, with clean white tiles, dark wood, colored vintage seltzer bottles, antique mirrors, and red banquettes.

They serve excellent, creatively prepared food, at a reasonable price

It offers home style cooking, serving breakfast, brunch, lunch and diner and is especially popular with family's and kids.  A good choice for a family Sunday breakfast.

Where you sit at Raymond's will affect your dining experience; Try to be seated in a booth or a table with some unobstructed view.

How Do We Review (analyze) Restaurants?

New Jersey Leisure Guide strives to provide objective restaurant reviews .

The methodology used is research, analysis driven --- as opposed to that of a single restaurant critic or a viewer comment posting board.

Data is gathered from our viewers e-mail restaurant comments, Internet research, and professional restaurant critics. The data is sorted, (weeding out the obvious biased, "bone to pick",  and out of consensus comments), analyzed, and the review is created.
