    This was my second visit to R Bar, I went to see the very entertaining and talented jazz band. I knew better than to get a cocktail, since last time it was all ice for $14.00, barely any liquor, a rip off! This visit when I walked in there was a bad smell, like a plumbing problem. I was going to leave but I wanted to see the band. I got a glass of wine, not good at all, but I didn't want to spend $17 for a decent glass. Food menu sounded ok, but pricey, I don't know why anyone would spend $42 for a pork dish and smell sewage and sip on a $14 glass of packed, crushed ice. So many good placed in AP, I won't be back to R bar. If I want to see the band, I will go to brunch at Porta.

    I would describe this as an upscale neighborhood bar. We walked in at 5 pm to a literally empty establishment. Twenty minutes later there were 20 people, mostly at the small bar enjoying after work drinks. The food was very good. I had a filet mignon done medium rare - it was tender and flavorful, but I've had better. My daughter also had the filet ordered medium rare, but it came out quite rare. My son enjoyed the pulled pork sandwich. The table shared blue crab beignets, essentially mini-crabcakes battered and deep-fried - the accompanying aioli was delicious. We shared disco fries, a tasty treat with cheese curds in gravy. Overall, the food is best described as upscale bar food - this would be a great place for a tapas outing, or light dinner and drinks. The beer was great - I enjoyed Narragansett lager on tap. If you've ever enjoyed it fresh and cold, from a clean tap system, you know what a treat it CAN be. Pints were $5 and beer generally was well priced. The noise was too much even with the place fairly empty. All hard surfaces, concrete floor and a too loud music system made conversation difficult - but after all it is a bar. All-in-all a nice experience, we'll be back

    The starters were fine . Everyone enjoyed my only negative critique was being rushed both time’s by the runners . We had our plates half full and they asked if we were finished . We felt really rushed . Dessert and cocktails were great . Our server was nice but instructed us as soon as we set down , that we needed to order bots starters and mains as the kitchen was really busy . Maybe she should just have waited until we actually ordered ? It was quite possible we were ordering starters and mains at the same time anyway … a little of friends really like the place and reservations aren’t easy . Maybe we coauthor an off night . Ps my wife was disappointed with the burger . The shredded cheese wasn’t even melted … not sure if that was intentional… Thanks

    The food and service were outstanding as usual. My wife had the pork chop and I had pulled pork sandwich. Both delicious. The server was very attentive and pleasant. Unfortunately, the adjacent table was exceptionally loud with continuous cackling laughter. It’s unfortunate when individuals have no sense of awareness and proper behavior. No knock on the RBAR, everything under their control was excellent. Went upstairs for an after dinner cocktail. A nice spot.

    I really enjoyed R Bar. The atmosphere was nice and the staff was very friendly. We got there before our reservation time, but went to the bar for a drink and hostess came and got us when our table was ready. The server was very attentive and the service was quick, but not rushed. Would definitely come back.

We had to wait a little longer for our meal & the chef brought us out complimentary seafood pasta which was AMAZING and our waitress gave us dessert on her for us being so patient. The cocktails are unique and creative we tried a few! Overall Great place , Great food & Great service !We will definitely be back.
