My wife's words, as we were trying to figure out why R&D is so consistently popular, busy and lively. R&D Kitchen is a locals' favorite. The food and service are always top shelf. Fortunately for us, we had a Friday night reservation (HIGHLY recommended) as wait time would have been 45 minutes or more. Despite the place being completely full,... More

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.

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!
