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.

Great Place. Very upscale restaurant. Small menu but wonderful food and service. Highly recommend for dinner. The filet was fabulous and the chicken meat balls were great

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

I have been here numerous times with consistent great food, cocktails and desserts. I recommend a reservation. The salads, burgers, and fish dishes are excellent.

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
