R & D is a destination and it has never disappointed. It's well worth a short wait of 20 minutes. It's fascinating to watch the sushi guys, and it's tastefully tantalizing too. I've not had dinner, just lunch; i'm sure it's all A+.

We had a great opportunity to sit at the kitchen bar and watch the sushi guys do their magic. The crunchy Thai tuna roll was outstanding. Very good rainbow roll and hamburgers that are a full meal. Very nice selection and service.

We sat at the bar for lunch, Megan did a great job taking care of us. Both of us had the pulled pork, kale, pickled onion, avocado sandwich.. It was absolutely delicious. I'm not sure if it is a regular menu item but it was amazing. Atmosphere is good.. Lively.. Fills up by noon though so try to get here... More

Service was phenomenal, food was fantastic and the atmosphere was fabulous! It's a definite win! Get there early, at 11:15 the place was jam packed, but it's worth the wait!

We love the R+D Kitchen (and have been to three other locations in CA--but overall, there aren't many). Food is always fresh, tasty, and presented well.

Love this place! The food is outstanding, the ambiance is wonderful and the service is excellent. Try he Duo Dip for an appetizer. I usually get the Newporter salad, but the sushi is fabulous as well. This is always a comeback for me.

I'm a local in Dallas and I regularly schedule business lunches at R+D. Their food is tremendously consistent and their service is impeccable. The menu is small and does not change from lunch to dinner. That being said, they execute everything on it flawlessly.
