Service was phenomenal, food was fantastic and the atmosphere was fabulous! It's a definite win! Get there early, at 11:15 the place was jam packed, but it's worth the wait!

The food here is consistently well-prepared and presented, and the service is top-notch. There's usually a bit of a wait, but it's well worth it. There's something for everyone. You won't be disappointed.

We love the R+D Kitchen (and have been to three other locations in CA--but overall, there aren't many). Food is always fresh, tasty, and presented well. Service is friendly and right there when needed. Their greeter always remembers us and welcomes us. Love the atmosphere. Always great! I will say "not sure" re "kids," in meaning here that we always... More

Love this place! The food is outstanding, the ambiance is wonderful and the service is excellent. Try he Duo Dip for an appetizer. I usually get the Newporter salad, but the sushi is fabulous as well. This is always a comeback for me.

I'm a local in Dallas and I regularly schedule business lunches at R+D. Their food is tremendously consistent and their service is impeccable. The menu is small and does not change from lunch to dinner. That being said, they execute everything on it flawlessly.

Drinks were OK, but very expensive, and they made us buy food because they were worried that we'd get too drunk to drive being... More

The room is very nice. All booths - no tables - but that is for very comfortable seating. Conversation is easy with that type of seating arrangement. Ceiling is wood so acoustics are good and you can hear your table-mates. The food was good - well presented and the wait staff was accommodating.
