And because it is vegan first, and kosher second, it has great service and great atmosphere. We ended up eating dinner here two nights in a row. The first night I had a... read more

Great lunch place. The hemp milkshakes were great but very rich. Delicious tempeh burgers, and they had a wide selection of vegan desserts.

My wife & I shared a Mediterranean salad. It was great and the portions are huge. They also have a large selection of gluten free desserts that are awesome & the service was excellent!

This restaurant is awesome, I could eat there every day. I had a Sandwich with Tempeh and salad as a side, and it was heavenly. The staff is very nice location is convenient with loads of parking nearby, and the atmosphere is very nice. Would go there again and recommend it to anyone!

RFD has been around for more than 20 years...and with good reason. It serves "organic plant-based cuisine," but don't let that fool you. The carnivores in the group will LOVE this place. It has amazing "comfort" food, and along with its standard fare, it serves far and away the best Mexican food you'll find in the city. The burrito will... More

A major fail, the kids hated it and we, who often eat vegan we're really unhappy with the food and the price was high. Only good thing was the lemonade. Daiya cheese on the quesadilla, really!!! Yuck. Not chos were OK,... More

RFD has the best tofu scramble I've ever tasted. Perfect texture and seasoning. Love both the "sausage" and avocado & cheese. Tasty hash browns, too. Great atmosphere. Close to the 3rd Street prom. Would def recommend!
