Diner Reviews
  • "Can't wait to go back! The Owner / Hostess makes you feel so welcome, like you are dining in her own home."

  • "It's hard to find a restaurant where you can enjoy great food, wonderful wine, and have a quiet atmosphere that allows conversation. R&D is that rare place. Thank you for a wonderful evening Dawn!"

  • "I never realized such a fantastic wine bar was in this little strip mall near PetCo and BestBuy. They have a larger private room in the back with comfy upholstered dining chairs, large table which sits 8 very easily and the walls were lined with the most spectacular array of wines. Donna, the owner is the heartbeat of this place. She lights up when you ask her opinion regarding any of her wines. She describes, in detail, the vineyard, grapes, etc with the kind of enthusiasm that let's you know this is not a hobby, this is her passion. The food was tasty. Can't wait to go back."

  • "A great place to taste some wines and eat either a few bites or a full meal. The staff are great. They were friendly, we had their attention whenever it was needed, and they really knew their wines. They have maybe 40 wines to choose from in the dispensers and nice tastefully prepared foods to accompany whatever you choose. The wines range from quality bargain wines to some serious high end wines. So be careful what you choose as your wine bill can go up quickly. You can also buy one of many other wines in the shop and pay corkage. Will definitely go back."

  • "Great place for light evening dining and sipping a nice selection of wines. My wife says it's great for a group lunch in the back room. Not a place to gorge yourself, but you leave sufficiently suffonsified."

  • "The service is outstanding. The food is well proportioned and prepared perfectly. I love the friendly atmosphere. It is so much fun to try so many new wines . You can taste 5 different wines and that is only one glass. Then I decide which wine I liked the most and have a full glass with my meal. And I find the price reasonable for the value."

  • "R & D Wine Boutique is everything the wine lover could wish for. Not only do they have wall-to-wall (literally) of outstanding wine selections, their tapas/small plate dinner selections are absolutely delicious. Don't miss the cheese selections either as you begin your tastings. Balsamic vinaigrette jelly and crackers is also unique and scrumptious."

  • "WHAT A GREAT RESTAURANT WITH THE OWNER/MGR PASSIONATE ABOUT TAKING EXTREME CARE TO MAKE SURE HER GUESTS ARE WELCOMED, SERVED WITH PROMPTNESS AND DELICIOUS FOOD! THE SELECTION OF WINES AVAILABLE FOR CONSUMPTION AND/OR PURCHASE IS GREAT!"

  • "This charming restaurant is located in a strip mall, and may be easily overlooked, but don't. There are only eight tables, so I encourage you to book ahead. The wines are outstanding -many unusual and hard to find, yet all price points. There is a wine dispensing machine where you may sample up to 20 different wines, should you choose to do so. The food is wonderful: the spinach artichoke dip is delicate and light, not overly salty. We had the eggplant parmesan and the chicken marsala, followed by Creme Brûlée, all perfect. Portions were just right. The chef came out to check with us to insure everything was to our liking. The service was outstanding. I could not ask for anything more and will return every time I am anywhere near!"

  • "A Fun and Funky little spot in Bluffton Strip Mall. A Wine sipper's dream !! So, many choices. It was so much fun to load you card with $20.00 or more and fill your glass with all the great wine selections. Tapas and small plate menu is pretty varied which was nice. We did small plates, food was terrific. In the past we chose the specialty cheese platter was equally delicious. The owner is fun and engaging which gives the place a relaxed vibe making it impossible to meet people while enjoying the food and wine. My, only complaint is the noise level and tables could be a bit more intimate. But, we still enjoyed ourselves!!"

  • "Finding a great glass of wine is fun and a great way to try many before deciding on one or two glasses to go with your appetizer and dinner. Deserts are great too. The owners are so personable and they make you feel very special almost like being at their home. The cheese appetizer plate is great no matter which cheeses you choose and the nuts , crackers and fruit that come with it are a pleasant surprise. We've been there many times and never been disappointment. Dinner specials are always good and the go to flatbreads are excellent-especially like the duck , the olive one and the mushroom one."

  • "When on Hilton Head (or off), the first destination is R&D. In addition to the ever changing selections in the wine taste machines there always is the friendly staff and great food selections to greet another visitor. Many wine labels not found elsewhere and the chance to taste or order a full glass of labels you probably wouldn't purchase in full bottle or taste before purchase. R&D is always a winner."

  • "This "restaurant" is in actuality a novelty wine shop. The novelty are the wine kiosks where you can taste a variety of wines at small portions with the hope of you finding one that you will purchase. Now for the restaurant.... The food we had was a "filet special" and a cheese platter. The filet tasted like a hamburger with low quality meat or preparation. The cheese platter ($16) was small with cheese and meat worth less than half of what they charged. Our appetizers salad lacked creativity. On top of that the wine was overpriced. Overall the restaurant is a poor value. It is better described as a novelty wine shop (kiosks) that is not worth it for dinner but may be to try something different "pre dinner"."

  • "R&D has become our 'go to' spot when in Hilton Head/Bluffton. The machines are always filled with interesting selections and at a broad range of prices. Nice to be able to taste new wines and old favorites even if whole bottle purchases aren't within the budget. This trip was for midweek lunch. Tapas type selections made decisions tough. All were outstanding. Back at Thanksgiving week for sure."

  • "This is mostly a wine bar for tasting using enomatic machines. The food was good and enough to accompany a tasting. Disappointed in the selection of white wines this time but will try again next year. Owner is very friendly and knows a lot about wine."

  • "What a great place to go for good food and great wine. When we visit Hilton Head we make it a point to go to R&D. Dawn and Cynthia treat us like family. We'll be back!!!"
