What a fantastic place to stop for lunch.

Affordable, great service, and delicious.

We had the chicken sandwich and the Macho salad. Both were an excellent value and very tasty. Everything here is homemade and you can tell when you eat it. They have wine on tap, and plenty of selection by the glass.

We will stop here again when we are in the Napa Valley for sure!

I was pleasantly surprised by the wonderful food and especially the service! I came with my dad who has some difficulty eating large sandwiches, but he chose the spinach omelet which was fresh and cheesy. I had the carnitas sandwich - full of coleslaw and pickled onions (which overshadowed the pork a bit - slightly less stuff and more pork flavor would be better). As we were waiting for our meal, we were given a Waldorf salad -just because! What a treat. The wait staff and all servers were extremely solicitous, friendly and made our experience delightful. I'm not sure about the bad reviews - maybe it was an off night, but I would highly recommend this restaurant.

I had heard mixed reviews about this restaurant, so had to try it for myself. Had lunch there with two friends and we loved everything that we ordered: Shrimp Louie, Tuna Burger, Chicken and Spinach Salad. The plate presentation was beautiful and the service was very good. R&D Kitchen is a new restaurant, in a beautiful new building with a lovely patio, complete with grow boxes. I would definitely return.

It was a bit pricy for apps and salads but WOW! the apps were delicious, delicious, delicious! Sit outside at one of the firepit's, its just a very warm, comfortable & inviting atmosphere.
