Diner Reviews
  • "The food at R+D was great as usual. We both had chicken sandwiches and liked them. We also started the meal with a sushi roll and it was tasty as well. Our only complaint was the wait time for our reserved table. We checked Open Table an hour before and there was plenty of availability. We arrived 15 minutes early, and were told the table would soon be ready. We sat at the bar and had a cocktail while waiting. Finished the cocktail and saw it was past the reservation time. 15 minutes later we checked with the hostess and she said the people at our table were finishing their dessert. We were finally seated 25 minutes after our reserved time. What happened to all that availability on Open Table?"

  • "A reservation was made for 8 but I was told at first that we might have to be separated putting two of our family members at a table for 2 in front of the table for 6 - when we got to restaurant- even though I had the reservation it took quite awhile to sit us and then my daughter noticed a table for 8 unoccupied right next to our two tables. Then the waitress moved us to the table which I do appreciate but don't understand why they would want to split us up when that was there and being a family ( two toddlers we would eat fairly fast - we were eating early 4:45 pm That finally worked out but took awhile. Lunch arrived in a timely matter-- no condiments with fries so we needed to get some. Overall it was a good experience not great!"

  • "We were treated to a lovely evening at this great restaurant. The food was outstanding...meatloaf superb, deviled eggs wonderful, heirloom tomatoes out of this world and service was amazing. There were a few minor errors with our order and they were quick to apologize and not charge us for the error. Would definitely go back!"

  • "was with friends from london and their twin boys (24 months). r & d had amazing high chairs that clamped onto the round table we were sat at, and a friendly and efficient service team that took great care of us from start to finish. working in the industry i understand how frustrating groups like this are, and how a 4+2 top that's going to be in and out isn't a great money maker for the restaurant, but r & d did not seem to care one bit! it was refreshing and made everyone's night. food quality as good as always. really nice tuna tartare. ice cream for the kiddos' birthday, very classy, super sweet. thank you r & d crew!"

  • "Went for lunch and really enjoyed everything. The servers are mostly college students during the summer so they are working hard to ensure good service and good tips which was delivered. The special sandwich for the day was a giant Tuna Burger which was fabulous. Not quite worth $20 dollars but we were on vacation and it was delicious. Everything is a la cart so 2 people can split their giant portions and order some side dished to try. Fries were good and Tabbouleh salad was one of the best I have had. Perfect place to enjoy lunch on a beautiful summer day."

  • "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."

  • "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."
