One of my favorite restaurants! All of the food is excellent. It is a little pricey, but well worth it. Always busy, so get there before the lunch and dinner rush. There are alot of great restaurants at Fashion Island, but this one is by far the best.
The name of this restaurant does not represent the quality of their food. Patrons are greeting by an amazing staff. The ambiance of the restaurant is very Newport - cool and well defined. The small menu enables the diners to get the very best of what R&D offers. My favorite is the Chopped Chinese Chicken Salad! I have been satisfied with every item I've tried. If you get a chance to sit at the bar - for a quick in and out - Robert will certainly take great care of you. Overall, for a healthy alternative to mundane salads and sandwiches, you must stop by R&D!
This is my favorite restaurant in Newport Beach, hands down. Although the menu is very limited, I never grow tired of it. . . . the food is very flavorful, the ambience is amazing, the service is incredible. I highly recommend the Rubenesque sandwich and the Newporter salad...and you HAVE to order the fries.
