A word from Redd
REDD, which opened its doors in November 2005, is the first venture from acclaimed Northern California chef Richard Reddington, who offers an updated interpretation of wine country cuisine in a decidedly relaxed environment. REDD reflects the passions of a serious chef who, after 15 years in some of the best kitchens in the United States and Europe, has found the perfect balance of serious food and unpretentious ambiance. "With Redd, I've created the type of restaurant that I like to spend time at--an inviting place that serves creative food and thoughtfully chosen wines in a relaxed, but elegant, contemporary space." Drawing from his classic French and Mediterranean sensibilities, chef Reddington has created a cuisine that combines flavors and textures that match well with local wines. REDD’S menu showcases regionally inspired seasonal selections with ethnic influences. A daily 5 course chef’s tasting menu is also available in addition to the regular menu.

    With our $150 gift certificate in hand, we dined, last Thursday evening, at Redd. Our evening began with small, complimentary, servings of soups, a lobster bisque and a spicy lentil soup. My husband had a "duck pageant" with the duck confit plate as his starter, and the duck breast as his main. Both dishes were beautifully served, and the duck breast portion was unexpectedly large (and served quite rare). My starter was the beet salad with smoked trout rillettes, which was fantastic with the added citrus flavors. For my main I had the skate wing with seasonal vegetables, which was also delicious. We shared a dessert of sticky toffee pudding with crème fraiche ice cream, huckleberries, and toasted almonds. We each had a single glass of wine ($$$$). With tax and tip, we added a fiver to our gift certificate. So, go to Redd prepared to spend $$$. But it will be worth it, with a lovely setting and fabulous service!!!!

    Had Saturday lunch with friends and could not have enjoyed it more. Beautiful setting, we were able to sit outside and enjoy the great weather. Server and staff were exceptionally well trained and friendly. Pork belly starter was amazing. Butternut soup was the best I've ever had. Server recommended a lovely Pinot that accompanied everything well. Mains included the lamb meatballs, duck (exceptional) and scallops. Will definitely go back because of the great food, friendly service and beautiful environment.

    2nd time to Redd and we will be back. It is not our norm to return to the same restaurant because we want to discover something new, but this is the kinda a restaurant you "take to meet your parents". Pork belly is a must. We have tried so many and this is top 2. Sunchoke soup was fantastic. Wait staff won't steer you wrong.

    Technically, not a bad experience. However, having eaten at other places of the same caliber in the area, this was a little disappointing given the reviews. Our server was cold...here's the menu, we have specials, what do you want to order? Very robotic, no enthusiasm for the food or wine. No suggestions, favorites or other discussion. Food was brought out efficiently and the waiter did check on us with every course. The food was fine. The pumpkin soup was good and my husband seemed to like the chicken thighs, but neither of us were over the moon about the apps. For dinner, I had the pork tenderloin; it had a nice crust of seasonings, and was prepared medium. My husband got the beef, which was under seasoned. The sticky toffee pudding for dessert was very good. There was nothing that stood out at this place. If you are looking for a place that is mediocre, this is the place to go. With so many other fabulous places in Napa and Sonoma, I would take this off the short list and explore other venues.

    Nice gourmet offerings for appetizers, entrees, and desserts at Redd. Order off the menu or they have a prix fixe menu. Portions were small, especially the appetizers (except the lobster risotto which was large, but the lobster was rather tasteless.) High corkage fee ($25. for the first two and $50. for a third bottle) compared to other restaurants in the Valley. Friendly service. Nice, elegant atmosphere. Had 3 people in our group, and with tip, the bill was over $300. Each person had an appetizer and entree, dessert and a total of 5 glasses of wine between us. Everything is ala carte, so no salads or accompaniments offered with the meal. Small amuse bouche was tasty at the start. Best part of the meal was the dessert. All were great portion size and excellent. Overall, a bit disappointing entrees, as the taste of the meals didn't quite match our expectations from the descriptions. Really good food, just not GREAT!

    Redd was a great place for dinner! The food was exquisitely presented and equally as delicious. The noise level was a bit high. Bar seemed to be pretty busy. Outdoor dining was very popular as propane heaters were putting out heat to keep the guests warm. I would put this restaurant on my list of restaurants not to miss while in Napa.

  • Monterey Bay Seafood Watch

    Dined on 11/9/2014
    Redd has a long seafood list. I asked about several items origins, including the special, I was dismayed that they were on the "avoid" of the Monterey Bay Seafood watch. The waiter even mentioned the Monterey Bay list, so he knew what I was getting at. How can a California restaurant, serving really excellent food purchase seafood on the avoid list? I also had the rabbit appetizer. Perfect, succulent. I would have preferred it taste a little gamier, and the leg was large making me think they got it from a farm where the rabbit isn't allowed to run around. But I'm assuming this...So from a restaurant of this calliber, I would have preferred to have seen a little more deference and attention to local, sustainable food.

    Dined on 11/9/2014
    We come here every year. The restaurant NEVER fails to deliver. The wait staff is knowledgeable and attentive. There is a sommelier. I love bourbon and the list is extensive. Make sure you ask to hear the nightly "specials" before you get too caught up with the menu. We usually get set on something then change our minds after we hear the specials. The lighting is soft. The dress code is all over the board. We come dressed or dress casual but have seen people in shorts. It's such a classy place I would pass on the shorts. Maybe khakis and a polo shirt are as casual as I'd go. It's not cheap but not over the top pricey. I would say that you definitely get what you pay for. If you want casual try their other restaurant, Reddwood, down the street. Great food and service with a casual vibe.

    Our group dined at Redd for brunch on a Sunday afternoon and all were raving about the experience as we toured Napa! A lovely spot with a beautiful patio tucked in to a corner in Yountville just across the street from the Villagio resort. They have a very nice wine list however most of our group preferred their Iced Tea (nice presentation) since we had already been drinking wine that morning....for an appetizer try the smoked salmon and for an entree three of our group had the lobster club...all thought it was amazing! Enjoy!

    We had an amazing anniversary dinner. It started out with a cocktail called the fall sour that I could drink all evening followed by...hamachi collar on Asian noodle salad...OMG...perfectly cooked and just the right amount of seasoning. I then had striped bass with wild rice and chestnut purée which I now feel like I need to learn how to reverse engineer. The dessert was perfectly light and disappeared in seconds. There are so many great places in Yountville but Redd really stands out in a town of great food. We will definitely go back again and again.

    My husband and I had lunch at Redds and were very disappointed with everything but the service. Our waiter was attentive but not intrusive. The dining room design was minimalist and cold. My husband had the pork buns and they were extremely salty and fatty. He couldn't eat it. I had the small plate scallops. The scallops were good but the accompanying cauliflower couldn't have been much more than one finely chopped floret. Not a big deal but why no ice in the water? We shared dessert and again very small portions and not very good. Really wanted to like this place but won't return. Maybe trying to be too trendy? Overpriced too, even for wine country.

    Very really do I say that an experience at a restaurant was just perfect- however our meal there was. From the moment we walked in every person we met and talked with, every bite of food, the ambience and in particular the service was just perfect. We asked to share all of our courses and the food was brought on 2 plates which is so appreciated without a bat of eyelashes from any waiter etc. We didn't want to spend a ton on a bottle of wine and the sommelier didn't bat an eye when we asked for a recommendation and his selection was terrific. The risotto with lobster was about as good as perfection can get.

    We had the tasting plates for 2. It gave us 10 taste of the chefs' cooking. They started at great and went up from there. The meal took about an 1-3/4 hours. Walked away stuffed and completely satisfied. They ask if you have any preference on your meal and prepared it aaccordingly. The meal was explained for every dish, ingredients, preparation, etc. Also available is a wine pairing.

My 2 dishes were delicate and delightful. My husband's were knock your socks off powerful with flavor. May the pork buns live on forever. Service excellent and quiet well appreciated.

    Redd is consistently one of our best meals in Napa Valley. It's in the same neighborhood as some heavyweight restaurants (several owned by the famous Thomas Kelleher) and it is always the stand out for us. Everything is fresh, in season and deceptively simply prepared. For lunch last week (mid-October), I started with a pumpkin soup with chesnut creme fraiche, a little kale and pomegranate seeds, drizzled with pomegranate reduction. I have been dreaming about it ever since! The rest of our lunch more than kept up with that first course. We've been every time we visit Napa and it will be our first reservation next time.

    Redd just didn't meet our expectations or all the hype. Beautiful atmosphere. Food was good to very good but the my husband ordered the tuna tartare and didn't care for it at all. He took one bit. No one checked to see if we liked our starters and it was obvious that he didn't eat his so for a restaurant of this level, that was surprising. Also, we gave the sommelier a price point for wine. He pointed out several wines that were double that price even though there were many wines at or below our price point. Halibut was very tasty and well prepared. Dessert was outstanding and the highlight of the meal. Chef made a special vegetarian option for one in our party which she thought was very good. Our waiter was very good.

    So many good restaurants in the Napa area, this is one to skip. The decor is as boring as the food. Had to wait to be seated even though we had made the reservation in advance. The chicken was dry and the steak frites tough. The naked light bulbs did nothing for the ambiance and even the dessert seemed dried out with its jello like merengue topper. Not a fave for sure!
