Service was friendly and helpful. The prices are high, but the food was very good. We wanted to dine upstairs, but we found out they only serve dinner inside, downstairs. Not the atmosphere we wanted on a beautiful summer evening. We will come back and have drinks and snacks upstairs in the future.

We had reservations at the bar for dinner. Our bartender was very attentive. We ordered a few plates to share amongst us - the crab beignets, wings, and disco fries - and we were all really satisfied with the dishes. Great scene, highly recommend!

The food was very good as well as the cocktails. My only complaint was that we were given bottled water poured into our glasses and not informed that we would be charged for it. I understand it was only $1 but it's the principle. Other than that it was a fun place to eat.

We loved everything about R Bar . From the moment we walked through the door until we left. Everyone was so friendly, very efficient and pleasant. The food and drinks were absolutely delicious. The menu had a wide variety of selections - something for everyone! We were so impressed with the ambiance of this restaurant. The setting was casual and at the same time gorgeous and elegant. Definitely planning many return visits. This will most likely be one of our favorite go to restaurants .

A very cool bar / restaurant with a young and diverse crowd. Too noisy for your grandma, but my 20 something daughters and I were right at home. Great selection of craft cocktails, beers and wine. You can get a $16 burger and a $4 draft beer or $65 NY strip steak and a $150 bottle of Burgundy. The food is very high quality, well prepared, delicious and the service is professional. I loved the crab beignets, and seafood gumbo and the Brick chicken was hit too.

We dined indoors, loved the decor and atmosphere. Unfortunately, there are too many tables in the space. It was extremely difficult to navigate a path to the bathroom. Having to ask people to move their chair every step of the way to get to get to the bathroom is annoying and could be avoided by removing two tables. I understand they need to get as many people seated as possible, but it not pleasant for your guests trying to enjoy their meal or those trying to get to the bathroom.

Slow start, but waitress immediately apologized…very accommodating! Everyone’s meal was VG, with the exception of my Mussels. (Sent them back) Less than a minute paste The Owner came over, acknowledging them without question, she was very embarrassed, saying she would of course take it off the check, offering us free desserts and coffee. It makes all the difference when a establishment treats their customers with care! We will definitely be back!!!
