exceeded expectationsWent for my sister's birthday dinner (on a Tuesday night, and the place was still packed!). Service was prompt and courteous. Water was always filled. Didn't get bread though, but I think you have to ask for it which we failed to do. We got two freebie courses for the table to share/try. Not sure if that was because I had mentioned it was a birthday dinner, or if that's normal. All the food was excellent. Favorite dishes were the seared scallops and ny steak with short rib and bone marrow gnocchi. All the dishes were expertly prepared and at the perfect temperature. Prices are about average to maybe on the lower side for what it was. I would definitely go back and recommend it to friends.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightfulMy Granddaughter and I went there for Mother's Day lunch.
It was delightful.
The Calamari was the best that I have ever had and the Menu made me want to order one of everything.
I would love to have the opportunity to return.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways WonderfulFour of us had Mother's Day brunch at Redd, my Yountville favorite. Three had egg dishes while I had the scallops. We began with oysters and fried calamari and finished with their lemon dessert. Everything was perfect as always. Thank you, Redd, for making Mother's Day even more special.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOUTSTANDING!Redd is now my favorite restaurant in Napa. Everything was so delish...appetizers (asparagus salad), main dish (Pork Tenderloin) and desserts (Bake Alaska and Butterscotch Pudding). My hubby had the Glazed Pork Belly, and Carmelized Scallops, also were delish! My friends had the Petrale Sole, Sautéed Skate Wings, Sashimi Hamachi...all were wonderful! I'm definitely coming back and bringing my adult children to Redd. Love, love, LOVE this place.
Oh....and the service was exceptional!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'll be back.Thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Redd. Excellent food, exceptional wine list and great service. Especially appreciated the help from the wine steward.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMJust wonderful!Had an amazing dinner here to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. We both loved everything! We can't wait to come back here again!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome!Amazing meal, we had yellowtail, asparagus salad, halibut, and pork tenderloin. Interior was a bit stark and plain.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday brunchGreat brunch experience? Calamari was out of this world. Pork buns and Pot stickers very yummy, even tho dipping sauce was a bit too salty. Huevos rancheros some the best I have ever had. Excellent wine advise, with a fantastic napa Sauvignon blanc. Service helpful and attentive. Fabulous.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a delicious meal atWe had a delicious meal at Redd. I had a broccoli and cauliflower soup that was fantastic and some delicious scallops as my main course. My wife had an amazing lobster risotto and a perfectly done steak. The wait staff was very friendly and the ambiance was perfect for a romantic meal.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent tasting menu.We've been here a few times (all great), but this time we opted for the Tasting Menu.
There were four of us. To get the Tasting Menu, the entire table must order and we happily did, as it was a special occasion with good friends. The food was excellent, and well paired with great wines.. There were two different options per course, so each couple got 2 completely different courses. Nice touch. We were completely impressed at every step.
The staff at Redd is exceptional. Good fun.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely place for special occasionWe celebrated my friend's upcoming birthday with dinner at Redd. Interesting concept with the tasting menu offering five different courses and wines - per person. We tried some of each others dishes and wines and got to taste almost ten different courses and wines altogether! Very attentive and friendly service and all dishes were well presented. We also tried Redd Wood and really liked it as well. We cannot wait to go back to Yountville!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AM5 course lunch or dinner is greatThe 5-course lunch or dinner is perfect for couples as each person gets 5 courses that are different than your partners but are large enough to be shared. The wine pairing available is also very reasonably priced and works the same with a total of 10 different wines.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch for Ladies Adventure DayWe made reservations at Redd's thru Open Table - had an excellent lunch. Service was excellent and very friendly. The food was fresh and inventive. It is a bright, airy restaurant in the heart of Yountville. Would highly recommend it to anyone for any meal.
The trout crostini was my favorite dish.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Lunch!!! Amazing food.Great Lunch!!! Amazing food. 3rd time there & still excellent.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBest of the BestMy wife and I have frequented most if not all of the top restaurants in Yountville and Napa, and I must say, Redd is the best of the best. Yes, better than Bottega, Bouchon, Ad Hoc, Hurley's combined. The food is sepectacular, cooked and presented to perfection. The combination of flavors is fantastic. Whereas my wife and I feel (she being a chef herself), that those other restaurants try too hard to be "unique" and wind up being trendy and artificial, Redd excels on every level. Go go go. You cannot go wrong!
And the desserts. HOILY SH&*%! Amazing beyond belief.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMStill a good as ever!Last ate here in 2007, only slightly a year after it opened and it was fabulous! Have been back to Napa since then, but with so many good places to try, we had been a little afraid that it wouldn't live up to our first experience. No worries there! The food was absolutely fabulous...get the 5 course tasting menu and if there are two of you, each of you will get different 5 courses so you can really try 10 things! The highlights: Hamachi appetizer, duck (wow wow wow!), pork belly, and desserts - one a strawberry sorbet, the other chocolate. Service is efficient, unobtrusive and to me, highlighted our enjoyment of the food.
Definitely worth the $$!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been to REDD severalWe've been to REDD several times and was happy with REDD.
This was our friend's first time to REDD and my friends are Foodies.
They and we had grat time at REDD!
Keep doing what you're doing!
I think it is working.
Joanne4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMost fabulous meal and serviceWe enjoyed several meals in Yountville and this was by far our favorite! Scallop entree was out of this world and the Halibut entree was light and so delicious. Can't leave without the butterscotch dessert!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner with 4 serious foodiesDinner with 4 serious foodies on April 27. We did the chef's tasting menu plus wine pairings. There were two separate menus - one served for the women and one for the men - thus everyone shared with spouse and we had a chance to try 10 dishes instead of 5. Every single morsel of food received a sigh of satisfaction - and a reflection that this was one of the best meals we can remember. I would note that our group is comprised of traveling consultants that dine out at high end restaurants several nights a week across the country. We HIGHLY recommend this dining experience.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA marvelous experience thatA marvelous experience that we hope to come back to in the near future. Don't miss this wonderful restaurant in all respects.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBest meal of my lifeChef's tastings + wine pairings - beyond amazing! Each person gets 5 different courses + 5 different wines so you can split and get 1/2 of all 10 courses and 10 wines.
So fun!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent meal! Ordered theExcellent meal! Ordered the 5 course tasting menu, was stellar and well paired!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAlmost a 5My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in Napa and planned our special dinner at Redd. We noted as much on our Open Table reservation. We were swept very quickly to our table and neither the Host seating us nor the waiter recogized our special occasion. I would say the service was extraordinarily professional and highly qualified but almost robotic and impersonal. We enjoyed the tasting menu and found it to be fantastic and well worth the price. The food was definitely 5 star! The wine list was a little overpriced but not surprised. We did receive dessert plates with the words Happy Anniversary written in chocolate sauce in the end. I would have given it it 5 stars if the service had not treated us so brusquely and col4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOur group of four had theOur group of four had the tasting menu with wine pairing. They serve five courses, and in each course, each couple receives two different dishes and two different 2 oz wine pours. By sharing you get to taste 10 dishes and 10 paired wines. It great food, imaginative wine pairings, and superb execution by a friendly and knowledgeable staff--and we got to meet a lot of the staff. We dined outside on a beautiful evening in Napa. It was a perfect evening. We did the tasting menu at the French Laundry the following evening, and I personally enjoyed the evening at Redd better.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMDid the tasting menu withDid the tasting menu with friends - AWESOME!!! This was the best meal we had while visiting wine country - by far4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA delightful evening withA delightful evening with great food and great service.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe stopped in for lunch beforeWe stopped in for lunch before an afternoon full of tastings and had a great time. We split the hamachi (good but wouldn't order again) followed by the steak sandwich and the scallops. The scallops were great but the steak sandwich was definitely the star, cooked to perfection and served on a light and buttery bun that won't leave you with a pit of regret weighing in your stomach an hour later.
Also had the Redd Swizzle (I think--some delightfully balanced tropical concoction) and would gladly order again.
Had a great experience!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMfood was amazing and anotherfood was amazing and another great option in town. Really loved the sashimi appitizer as well as the calamari.

We even had the Chef of the Day Brett came out to our table. Nice touch!We will be Back. As a side note, if you don't want to be at a table the Bar is a great place to sample the menu,its a little more casual4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an odd number of peopleWe had an odd number of people in our group (3) and ordered the tasting menu with wine pairings. As they alternate who gets served what they also alternate the paired wines. This makes it very difficult to share. We would have much preferred eating the same thing or goosing between two options wih each course or at the very least the brilliant sommeliers could have chosen a wine to pair with both dishes4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBest dining experience of my lifeWe made reservations for Redd three weeks in advance, and it's a good thing we did! My husband and I ordered the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings, and it was the most incredible meal we have ever had. Nobody does food like Redd. Every wine was perfectly paired, and the sommelier was kind and knowledgeable without being snooty. Highly recommend!!!4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe server was very well trained,The server was very well trained, attentive and new the menu very well . The "master" sommelier seemed tired and not very enthusiastic. Food was fresh and excellent quality. The desert and the cheese course were the peak of the night for me. Overall I enjoyed it.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful evening!We were seated right on time for our 5:30 pm dinner reservation and the service was impeccable. We were not rushed in ordering but felt that our server, Ryan, was attentive and available as needed. I had the Halibut and it was superb, as well as the vegetable pairing. My husband ordered the steak which was delicious and perfectly cooked to order. My lemon sorbet dessert with small squares of angel food cake were exquisite.My husband's chocolate dessert was eaten too quickly for me to taste it but there was not a lick left on his plate. We were thanked as we left and someone from the staff opened the door for us to say goodbye. Outstanding service all around and great food. Typically one must sacrifice one for the other; not Redd.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMwe had the tasting menu &we had the tasting menu & the wine pairing. this was really GREAT. (& exellent value).
somthing is wrong with the air-condition and this was the only bad thing to say.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMComfortably World-ClassRedd is a world-class restaurant. The food, service, and ambiance are outstanding but notably approachable and comfortable. Our group thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience and look forward to returning next time we are in Yountville.

Has to be one of the best restaurants I have every eaten at. Amazing. I would suggest this as being a must to anyone visiting Yountville and the Napa Valley. The service was outstanding. Wine list exceptional and food amazing. Would rate this as the best of the best of Yountville and Nationally!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was superb, the serviceThe food was superb, the service on par with the food and the atmosphere exemplary. The Hamachi Sushimi was exquisite, the Potato and Leek soup divine, the Yellowfin Hamachi Tartare excellent (some people don't like cilantro, but the hint of it here was beyond description - a perfect punctuation), the Trout Crostini was the only dish sub par to the rest - a bit smoky for our taste, but perhaps wonderful for someone else's palette. Finally, the Scallop entre', which happens to be our favorite did not disappoint. As we sat and ate, we participated in a food challenge with a couple, friends of ours that were simultaneously eating in Paris via Facebook. All parties agreed (as they are familiar with REDD) it was a draw!!!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMRedd is a must!My wife and I went for lunch in between wine tours. The food at Redd is unreal! Scallops for appetizer was the best move we could have made, they were incredible. I had the ny steak sandwich and it was one of the best sandwiches I have ever had. My wife and I eat at a lot of notable restaurants in ca and Redd is up there with the best of them.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMDid not dissapoint.Dined while in St Helena and enjoyed overall experience. Starters were Carnoili risotto with maine lobster, fried oysters with spiced mushrooms and bacon, and a salad. Best dish was risotto. Entrees were Sonoma duck breast, wild stripped bass, and carmelized diver scallops. All excellent. Desserts butter scoth pudding, and baked Alasaka. Server very knowledgable and attentive.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMCreative - the best in the valleyEverything was outstanding. Had the leg of lamb which was prepared as 3 separate dishes: sliced leg of lamb, chop, and short rib style. Very creative. Always our favorite place in the valley.
