Thouroghly enjoyed every single thing about our experience at R +D!!!! Starting from the hostess, Lindsey, greeting us with a genuine friendly Texas smile to the outstanding food, this is your place!!! Our waitress, Claire Gunder was the sweetest, most professional, knowledgeable waitress I’ve ever...had the pleasure of having! She is what made our visit so special by giving us the perfect personalized attentive customer service above all others. She didn’t steer us wrong on the menu selections either!! We will be back for certain and be requesting Claire as our waitress again!!!More

Oh boy! I asked a friend to meet here for lunch on a Saturday at 3p. I assumed a lull between lunch and dinner. Wrong! The place was packed with a wait list! Excellent atmosphere. Open kitchen. Bright sunlight through windows. Excellent server and staff....Pressed sushi...Excellent! It's a pricey place which is expected in this neighborhood. One sushi roll cost $18 which was standard price and others cost more. That's my only issue. All else great!More

Fantastic service by Nate. The entire establishment runs like a Swiss watch. Freshly prepared fares. Attention to detail. Must try.

It pains me to write this review, this has consistently been the best restaurant in Dallas. The food is always prepared with a certain excellence that only the main Chef Martine can deliver! The true essence of this gem has always been the smartest and...most talented staff in the city. The bar staff are the best group of bar tenders in the city and have genuinely become what all of the routine regulars call family. My wife and I eat there 4 nights a week for the past 4 years and so look forward to seeing the brilliant crew every night. They always greet everyone with a smile and how can I help you. They range in tenure from 10 years to 3 years of service and were dedicated throughout the pandemic, and when all restaurants were struggling with staff they leaned on these core group to help and they did! They recently brought on a new GM who has single handedly ruined the culture person by person. She works by intimidating and a culture of fear she has taken zero time to get to know the patrons nor the staff. My wife and I watched the slow destruction for the last 4 months and firing of the best team in Dallas one by one. We don't intend on going back to this establishment and reward organizations that mistreat their dedicated staff. Chris, Jenni, Darrion, Ally, Audrey, Herani, Rebecca, Vishal, Brandon we are sorry for the culture that you are now subjected too. If we have learned one thing during this pandemic its to appreciate the best things in life and never knew we would find it here but we did and that was all because of you. Once the word gets out in Dallas I'm sure we will not be the only loyal regulars that will stop coming to this establishment that is no longer the unique neighborhood gem it used to be.More

We met a friend at R+D Kitchen at the friend's suggestion. We had driven by the restaurant before and liked the look of the restaurant. We ate outdoors and liked the atmosphere. The brunch food was very good, but you do not get much food...for the cost. I was surprised how little tuna that I was given on the kale cashew salad with tuna, but the taste was very good. The only real issue was that we had not even been there 45 minutes when all our plates were removed, after they asked multiple times if they could remove our plates before we were finished. However, at about 50 minutes, the staff abruptly removed our glasses without asking us and made it clear that they were ready for us to relinquish the table. When we left soon thereafter, it was surprising that they did that as there was not anyone that we could see waiting. The restaurant seems to be a good location, so I hope that they can make a few updates to make it even better for people to enjoy eating there.More

One of my favorites!! The quality of the food and service is always on point. Never disappointed. The Newporter Salad is my favorite. Always delicious and the freshest ingredients. Great atmosphere. A great place to meet for business or with friends.

Again. Good place to dine. Good vibe. Great sushi. Service is lackluster... Another Hillstone property, so I tend to expect more . I will still go often in the hopes it will get better. I’m not a huge sushi fan and they do it EXTREMELY...well. A bit loud on occasion. Dining at the bar is nice. Be sure and ask For Randy. Top notch bartender. Salads are good as is the Queso and Guacamole duo, great crispy chips .More

I was back in Dallas for business and this is the second time I have been to R+D. The kale salad and burger are fantastic. The decor is mid-Century modern and had a great buzz on a rainy cold Monday night in February. Highly recommend...it for thoughtful American/bistro food.More

The bar and bar staff at R&D’s provide a backdrop for a wonderful casual dinner for two. We attempt to be ‘regulars’ but the crowd at dinner often makes it both challenging and highly rewarding. From the brief, highly curated menu (no substitutions or creative...requests) to the amazing and formal craft cocktail artisans, this is a place of great comfort and even greater service. When you stop in, ask for Robert, and he will be sure you are well attended to! We’ll see you there!More

This is one busy place expect a wait. The central bar is a good place to hang while you wait. On this occasion we all enjoyed some sort of salad entrée. My seared tuna salad entrée was superb, almost a Nicoise, but their own version....A Dallas buzz to it and not inexpensive but worthy of time and moneyMore

This is another restaurant owned by Hillstone Corporation this is the third time I’ve been here. I enjoy the atmosphere and the restaurant menu isn’t extensive just like their other restaurants. Which I like . We weren’t very hungry so we didn’t eat much we...had a couple of different types of sushi which were decent. We had a dip duo which included guacamole and a cold cheese queso dip with fresh chips which was wonderful. The service was good, but each time I leave their wanting a little bit more and I just don’t seem to get it. I’ll keep visiting but it’s just not that impressive the menu doesn’t change very often. It’s a little better than average and the ingredients are definitely quality.More
