Wine Bar
Riccardo was born in Florence, Italy and grew up in Boston, MA. Marybeth, a Sioux Falls native, ventured to the east coast as a nanny and then nursing school in Somerville, MA. The two met, fell in love, and became engaged on Martha’s Vineyard island. Moving back to Sioux Falls in 1999 and working at several area restaurants, they opened R Wine Bar in 2018. As owners of R Wine Bar, Riccardo and Marybeth are passionate about one thing: people. They believe that people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. With a curated wine list, local craft beer on tap, and beautifully executed menu, Riccardo and Marybeth are thrilled to bring R Wine Bar & Kitchen to the East Bank of Downtown Sioux Falls along with their General Manager, Jane Allen, Executive Chef, Andrew Morgan, and Director of Catering, Ben Swenson.

    I’ve noticed when they don’t have live music, there is no music playing on the speakers, would be better with background music. Chicken was a little dry/over cooked. Most of the time it’s much better!

    We were out for a birthday dinner, party of 6. We were seated promptly and enjoyed the live music. Our waiter, Jaxon, was attentive and helpful. Everyone enjoyed his or her meal and dessert. Thank you for a special evening!

    Great Vibe -- Loved the atmosphere and enjoyed the music. Service was excellent. Prices were a little higher than what we are used to but would not deter us from coming back. Food was very good - salads were good sized and fresh, main dish was very good, cheesecake was exellent. Wine selection was appreciated and very good.

    The reservation process was easy and we were seated within a minute of walking in the door. Our server must have been new because she was a little unreceptive on how long we were sitting waiting for the check and in between ordering food/dessert and then she accidentally short-changed me by $10, but I was going to leave it as a tip so I didn't care much. Otherwise, the food was stellar and well-balanced and the noise level was great it was easy to talk and I didn't feel like I was the only one in the place like some restaurants can feel like. I will be coming back for sure!

    The music is way too loud for my preference. Most people like to visit while they are having a very nice meal. It’s very distracting. It is much more than what I would consider background music.

    We were disappointed the hostess sat us in the back dining room. There was not much ambience & we were not able to see the band or enjoy the front dining room. It was our first experience there & we were hoping for better. Service was amazing, but you need atmosphere to go along with it. I was happy with my food, my husband said the $40 filet was just ok. I realize you do not have a grill there, but it was just a different taste & it wasn’t the greatest flavor. We did not complain at all. Our server was wonderful.

    Ordered the swordfish steak - it was very dry and overcooked. Perhaps my expectations were over zealous since SD is not remotely close to anywhere to get fresh seafood, but there was also something very bitter in the quinoa that came with it. The other food was good, but for the price of the swordfish dish, expected it to be significantly better.

    Early dinner (4:30 reservations) so it was quiet but picking up by the time we left. AMAZING food, including one gluten free pasta dish - the best GF pasta I’ve had. Everything was cooked, flavored and seasoned perfectly. On the expensive side, but the food is worth it with large servings, too full for dessert. Great way to treat parents to a nice dinner while visiting for the holidays. Wonderful and attentive service. Will definitely be back.
