I love this restaurant! The food is amazing, although the menu does not change, aside from the specials of the night. Go early and grab a drink from the bar and hang out in one of the lounge areas.

A little limited in menu and pricey burger with no sides?

Went with some friends before a show at the Lincoln Theater. Prompt service which helped us to get to the show on time.

The wait staff could have checked in on us, however, as we had to flag one down to order a dessert to share. This is the second time this has happened to me there, so I think the staff should check in more frequently, as we shouldn't have to get their attention.

Went here with my girlfriend, 47 minute drive, very worth it. Food very good, really professional, atmosphere is lively and friendly, a lot of happy faces, happy chefs, happy waiters, very positive vibe and positive attitude. Food was great, sushi is exotic and unique, very tasty. Shrimp is spot on and crunchy. Recommended, food is worth the value, high price for great quality food. Restaurant is clean, decorative, and very casual, which I love. 10/10 will be coming back. Recommend the shrimp and coconut sushi roll, best sushi I ever had.

This is the more affordable, relaxing and less filling of our favorites in Yountville.
Creative menu, modern ambience, great service and let's save the " big meal" down the street for a ( very) special occasion!

The Thai Noodle Salad with roasted chicken and avocado was absolutely delicious. My husband got the fried chicken sandwich which was also amazing.

We don't normally eat in chain restaurants, but this is one I had never heard of, and they only have a small number of locations. We had lunch on a weekday, and the place was hopping! The Honor Cheeseburger was excellent, and the truffle fries were very good, though hard to eat because they were thinly cut. My husband's spinach and cheese omelet was excellent. Our server, Lisa, was delightfully friendly. Total bill for 1 cheeseburger, 1 fries "for the table", 1 omelet, and 1 glass of wine was $44, plus tax and tip. I would enjoy having lunch here again.

Excellent food and a great atmosphere. For some odd reasons the waters took forever to show up. Drinks and food arrived first. Dessert menu was two uninteresting items but our waiter suggested a great option right around the corner. Worth a visit.

Not bad for a chain restarant, although I think Rutherford Grill is better. I had the ahi burger which wasn't bad, but the bun fell apart, soggy. Fries were ok, but the winner was the kale salad ! Loved it

Love this restaurant and the food. Always bring in a bottle if wine to take advantage of free corkage. Never thought I would be one of these, but, the music was loud. Think they had it up for prep and forgot to lower it. First time this was an issue!

It was a wet, rainy cold night in Napa Valley, yet this restaurant was packed with folks having a good time. ( They have a huge patio area that could not be used with the rain). We had a reservation and were seated on time. We were greeted at our table by our server within minutes of being seated. The good service continued through the evening. Excellent preparation of the apps and main courses was had. The sushi menu items were a meal in them selves. A great place to people watch. If you are a walk in, sitting at the bar is entertaining.

We've met another couple at R&D twice now, and both times we had a wonderful experience. Beautiful food presentation and excellent service. A little noisy but talking was not difficult. Both couples drive an hour each way to eat here and it is worth the drive.

Salads are as visually impressive as they are fresh and delicious! I am not a fan of raw fish, but the tuna tartare is an often-repeated selection! Same for the yummy kale salad for a side to share!
Very generous portions-
Servers are consistently knowledgeable and personable.

The food came out perfect and quickly. The service was average. Our waitress spilled wine on the table with every pour. The occasion was my wife's birthday. Nothing special was offered for the occasion. The restaurant is very nice and I would recommend it for lunch or dinner.

This was our first time dining at R& D Kitchen and it won't be our last. We had an amazing dinner with even better service. The drinks were perfect and the food outstanding. We didn't get to sit outside due to the weather, but they have a great outdoor bar area to enjoy. We look forward to our next visit to the wine country and will for sure be back to R&D.
