I went to R O at the recommendation of a friend. We did not enjoy the food, they were out of the wines on the menu, food was below average. However, I'm told that they are m own for their roast beef sandwiches.

I have never had a bad experience at R&O's. The food is excellent and the wait staff is efficient and capable. My family has been frequenting this restaurant for more than 15 years.
