There are 4 things I look for in a restaurant. Good food, a good wine list, a pleasant environment and a welcoming, well trained wait staff. R & D far exceeded in every category. From being greeted and assisted by the very helpful owner/manager, Dawn, to the delicious dinner, accompanied by just the appropriate and reasonably priced wine in a... More

A friend suggested that I give R&D a try and I was thoroughly impressed. The food, wine and service was excellent. Dawn was the perfect hostess during our visit. I will definitely be coming back.

We were looking for a restaurant with a good wine selection, we found it at R&D! We were served by one of the owners, Dawn. She was helpful and informative in her wine recommendations. There is an opportunity to sample various wines at a range of price points via a "credit" card system. We were able to sample bottles from... More

We had excellent meal here. The wine selection is large and the price is competitive. Food menu is small. We tried salmon fillet and eggplant parmigiana. Everything was cooked to perfection. If you like to enjoy a relax evening with good wine and food, don't miss it.

Wow I can not believe the selection of wine. I was able to try some wine that I would have considered to expensive. It was very good and worth a little extra. What a great idea try before you buy. They have food as well. The meal I had was excellent. I really loved the bread. The staff was very... More

The food and wine here are great, as is the ambiance, even in a pretty obscure strip mall. Just a couple of small quibbles. Entrees at this price and at this type of nice restaurant should be served with bread. The other small disappointment was the server asking us to keep our silverware at the end of the appetizer course,... More

I was here march 7th with 5 friends and family. We were seated in the private dining area. The owner and server treated us like we were guest in their home. Whatever we needed they helped us. The passion for their business is obvious. They are incredibly knowledgeable about the wines. The food is prepared to perfection. What a great... More

Everything was perfect. Owner was very informative and the food was excellent. Great selection of wine in either 1, 2 or 6 ounce samples from neat vending macines, or they will pour them. Highly recommended.

This is such a terrific place! If you are a wine lover you will swoon! If you are a foodie, you will also swoon, it is so good. We made reservations on Open Table, which I'm glad we did, as there are only ten tables, and they were busy even on a weeknight. Our gps couldn't find it so we... More

R&D was the perfect place to spend a rainy afternoon. The gorgeous wine selection, food menu and tasting room perfectly set the tone for a great tasting experience. Dawn (the owner) was the consummate host and made us feel like we had visited her home instead of her business. Whether you are an aficionado or new to wine, this is... More
