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

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!

If you didn't come looking for a healthy meal, you'd be bowled over at what a different world it is - a top-tier team of foodies creating thoughtful dishes and meals that are as healthy as possible. It all makes perfect sense in Los Angeles (and California in general), but it's rare to find this kind of vim for healthy... More

The vegan options were amazing and surprising. It will please everyone. You dont have to be a vegan to enjoy this place. Wow. Want to come back for brunch. Had a salad, and tasted one of their smoothies. Try it!
