Went back to R+D several times, recently. They've added a few items and freshened up the menu, slightly. Service seems to have improved and the Dip Duo can be ordered as a Dip Uno should you try it solo. (Not on the menu). Am happy to see improvements!

The food was good but overpriced. The music is way too loud, and the tables are too small for parties over 4. Service was good.

I am not a food critic by an means, nor am I picky. I am legitimately happy with the vast majority of places I go to eat, and have never bothered to write a google review. But my girlfriend and I contacted food borne illness from eating here. We both ordered the crispy chicken sandwich with slaw. The service wasn't sensational or anything, but it was very busy, so I was sympathetic. We both enjoyed the meal, and then went home. About four hours later, we became sick. I researched this place after getting sick. Apparently Pierce Broznan's wife had the same experience (you can google it). As a result, a lawsuit erupted. Its disappointing that the establishment continues to make the same mistake: especially when the mistake causes the consumer a great deal of pain. I would not recommend this restaurant to any one.

I like to go here for some wine and appetizers to catch up with friends. Very lively atmosphere that is good for people watching. Very nice wine selection and like the dip duo with tortilla chips. Nice modern but warm decor. Bonus is the fireplace at the end of the bar when it is on the colder side. May take some time to get a seat in the bar area but I usually do fairly quickly.

R+D Kitchen isn't exactly the fanciest or tastiest food I've ever had but it is full of interesting intrigue that is a little different from the norm and makes it all the better. The menu consists of sandwiches/burgers/salads. We got the Dip Duo/Asian Chicken Salad/Veggie Burger. The dip Duo was awesome - a nacho plate with two great sauces. The Asian Chicken Salad wasn't too bad - had an interesting presentation. The highlight was the veggie burger - sweet yet flavorful and a great mixture. Waiting time was around 30 minutes on a weeknight - service was great - decor was a little dark. Parking available on the street/side streets.

Heartwarming, Healthy and delicious food! I have driven over 30 minutes out of my way to go to this fabulous restaurant. Whether dining in or to go, the staff is top notch and First Class!! The food and menu is genius, the staff incomparable . The salads are earth shattering, especially the one with the chunky peanut dressing!! To die for! Both locations are incredible, and I wish there were more!!1
