My wife and daughter enjoyed the filet, it was well prepared and flavorful. There is no corkage fee, and the service was very attentive. I look forward to returning there soon."

  • "R & D is an asset to the Napa Valley Restaurant Scene! The food is very tasty, the ambiance is modern and relaxed! I have been several times in a small group and in a large group. The professional staff was able to execute in any setting! I look forward to making this a regular stop for me as well as plan events for my family and friends. I invite you to do the same!"

  • "We visited in R+D a few months after it had opened. The night we went was not a busy night. I ordered a cocktail and hubby ordered beer. they didn't have the beer he ordered and somehow it took them 15min to let us know that. He ordered a different beer, which arrived about 10-15min later. We had 3 different waitresses, which I'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that since they had recently opened they were trying to figure out their stations. Our food arrived, it was good but nothing extra ordinary which is what I would expect from a restaurant in Napa. I may come back later on once the place is established, but overall the first impression wasn't anything special."

  • "Some delicious twists on mostly comfort-food fare. Service a bit erratic; not all waitrons are created equal. It was a refreshing change to find a place so affordable, yet with good food, amongst the big dogs of Yountville. We will likely try them again the next time we're in the Valley. Goof for a fun, casual night out."

  • "Amazing fillet! From appetizer to the main dish, all was fantastic! Our server was outstanding and helped us choose a dish and was very helpful! If there is a downside, drinks were so-so but may be due to individual tase."

  • "First time I ate there I had the chicken sandwich. Excellent! That is why I went back. This last time I went with my family and we all had something different so got a good sample of there dishes. They were mediocre in flavor and my son had a $28 steak which did not have a good flavor. My filet mignon salad was so sweet I had to ask for more greens so I could stand to eat it. I was very disappointed. All that I tasted that evening was mediocre except the great chicken sandwich which my daughter had on my recommendation. What they did do, which was excellent PR was to comp me my dish and 2 small plates without our asking. Very décent."

  • "After visiting Far Niente Winery with the Dad's (Father's Day) we headed over to R & D Kitchen for a quick bite to eat before our next tour !!! This restaurant is owned by The Hillstone Restaurant Group, that happens to own The Rutherford Grill (got your attention now?!) A stunning new building with a large parking lot, great waitstaff, all tables are comfortable booths, full bar and great outdoor seating. The Thai Steak & Noodle Salad with marinated filet mignon, mango, avocado & pancit noodles ($19) is FANTASTIC. CAUTION: Ding's Crispy Chicken Sandwich on a sesame-onion bun with swiss and spicy slaw ($15) is Crazy Good. WARNING: Their Deviled Eggs ($5) even if you don't care for eggs, will convert you (wink) - Note: No Corkage !!!"

  • "So Yountville's a culinary reputation is world renown. From the French Laundry to Buchon to Bodega.....it's endless. So to find a place where the cuisine is inventive, delicious, and affordable and you don't have to wait a year to get in is so awesome. This is the place that fits right in for the neighborhood. My husband and I enjoyed a delicious devil eggs, chicken sandwich, and pasta pomodoro. We would've partake in their fine wine list if we were not over lubed already. Everything was delicious although I must say I am in love with the chicken sandwich. It's a must stop place after a day of wine tasting. Reservation is recommended during lunch and dinner. If you go between 2-4, there should not be a wait."

  • "Fabulous!!! Food, service, ambiance. Alysha never disappoints and has brought her charm to Yountville. Don't overlook the R&D deviled eggs...incredible appetizer. Burger and Carnitas sandwich did not disappoint. We'll be back."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "I have been here a few times, and continue to return. The menu isn't extensive, but what they do is very good. I don't think anyone I know who has been complains. I've had the chicken a few times (really really good) and opted for the burger and fries this time.... Pretty damn good. I've yet to have a burger from Gott's, so I can't compare it. But does that even matter? It's well worth it. My girlfriend had the Thai steak salad, which was pretty good as well. Definitely will be back."

  • "This restaurant was awesome! The food was very good, especially the meatloaf and deviled eggs. The meatloaf made with ground beef and pork was tasty, tender, and moist. The most accommodating and kid friendly restaurant in Napa Valley. The wait staff especially Lindsey were always there to meet our needs and made it a special night for my niece's five year old birthday."

  • "The only reason I gave 4 stars overall was they gave me someone else's bill at the end of the evening which happened to be way more than mine. I normally just throw my credit card down but happened to look at the bill and it totally was the wrong one. No one noticed until I spoke up."

  • "We are local and worried when this place still opened up. We have had quite a few meals here now and the consistency is astonishing. "

  • "Although I had a bit of trouble locating the restaurant (it is a bit hidden), finally arrived. I took my 91 year old mother there for Mother's Day lunch. I cannot say enough about the food, the presentation, and the service. Everything was absolutely outstanding, and we were both SO impressed. It was a bit busy, but we had a lovely booth....and we were well taken care of. I would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant to anyone, who loves great food, service, and ambience. My mom could not rave enough about her shrimp louie.....IMPRESSIVE! I look forward to returning again."

  • "We go up to the Napa Valley often (a 1 hour drive for us) to enjoy wine, food, and the beauty. Often we are making a last minute reservation for lunch which varies from grabbing sandwiches to go at Oakville to elegant dining. R&D Kitchen will be a regular for us after our first visit. The steak salad was to die for! Service was top notch, amazingly fast, and a step above what I expected. An attractive and sleek yet very comfortable decor, mostly booths. Try it when those trending places up the street in Yountville are booked, you won't be disappointed."

  • "It was my first time dining at R+D. I loved absolutely everything. We celebrated my birthday and we left satisfied. Our favorite dish was crispy chicken sandwich. One little disappointment was the dessert choice. They have only one type of cake and ice cream. "

  • "The Dip Duo is still my favorite. I shared for appetizer and had again for dinner. Of course too more than half home for another meal. Lol. "
