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.

    There are not enough washrooms in this restaurant. During our visit, one of the washrooms was our of order, leaving only one working for the entire restaurant. We spent at least a half hour of our time waiting in a lineup for the restrooms. Other than that the experience was great. The food is outstanding, the service was slow, but friendly.

    Interesting menu, and good choices, plus a wonderful wine menu. We were all very satisfied with our entrees, except for he desserts. The choices are the weakest on the menu, plus the coffee also was served cold. While service was quite good, it was rushed and lacked finesse.eg: Seemed like our waiter wanted to turn the table ASAP. Not cool in this quality of restaurant. We were also missing some silverware pieces when food was being served, that we had to ask for. All small things, but overall it mounts to a lack of training, and not expected in this caliber of restaurant....

    Our party of four dined outside for lunch. We all chose the five course option, which turned out to be an excellent choice. Instead of each of us getting the same dish, the chef prepared separate dishes for each pair of us. The food, service, wine, and Napa setting made for a great lunch.

    Not sure I can find the right words to describe, the lunchtime food and service were fairly good, but overall both just seemed almost "tired" - not as "exciting" as the prices and hype, nor on par with my previous experiences there. Don't want to damn with faint praise as it was still in the top 20% or so of places where I have had lunch, but not in the top tier.

    We selected the tasting menu with wine pairing and it was outstanding! The food was delicious and the wine was really good. The service was impeccable and the food and wine descriptions were elaborated. The restaurant was easy to find in Yountville. The only negative thing we have to say is that in order to have a table in this restaurant, we had to reserve almost a month before! This shows how this restaurant is appreciated by customers :)!

    We had lunch at Redd and were a little underwhelmed. The hamachi sashimi was spectacular and I would return just for that dish. However, my shrimp salad was nothing special. Too many noodles and carrots for just three shrimp, and not nearly enough flavor. My friend ordered the smoked trout salad and a scallop dish, both of which she found to be good but not great. Our other friend ordered the lamb meatballs. While she liked them, I did not. To me they had a very strong mutton flavor. I took away one star because I found the service to be slightly inept. While everyone was courteous our waiter didn't have a clue about the wine or the cheeses on offer and had to keep running off to ask someone else. Not very professional.

    Yet another trip to REDD confirms excellence in food, wine and service. I brought visitors on this visit (probably my 10th overall), and it was the same perfection as the first trip. Relaxed, with great wine and superb food, creates a memorable experience - never disappointed at REDD. My thanks to the staff as always!

    This was my second time at Redd, and was as impressed with their lunch as much as with dinner last time. Our food was excellent, especially scallops, but it is our waiter, who made this meal a special experience. Not only she gave wonderful recommendations for wine and food, but also was able to balance entertaining with giving us space to chat and enjoy our lunch. I would absolutely be back and wholeheartedly recommend Redd to all my foodie friends!

    Excellent wine list. Food was perfectly prepared and its presentation was superb. In fact, my sea scallops looked so good I took a phone-pic and emailed to my colleagues at the office. Service was professional, knowledgeable, and timely. The only thing I didn't care for was the austere decor. Very contemporary and sparse, but that is a personal choice and would not keep me from returning.

    I went to Redd toward the end of a week that was a food n wine extravaganza. Have you ever had such a week where, toward the end, you're just plain full? U don't even feel like eating anymore? Well that's how my wife n I both felt by the time it was our night at Redd. We would have cancelled but had heard such great things and, being from NY, we just were not sure when we'd get another chance. Despite our condition, Everything was still fabulous. From the sublime seafood risotto through the insane banana chocolate cake. If you love a restaurant when starting stuffed, well that has to be a pretty special place!

    Redd continues to be in my top 5 list of places to go within the entire Napa foodie scene! I come here for 1st class food without the pretentious attitude: you could be yourself, relax, and have a michelin meal. Their short ribs are now famous and are a must have. My only complaint is that I arrived at 5:29 PM, 1st guest to arrive, and the MC (as friendly as she was) told me they don't do seating until 5:30. ONE MINUTE TO GO!!!! Give me a break! So, I had to wait 40 secs. Then, a couple walks in, goes right to the desk and the MC seats them before me. Not very professional.

    Chef's choices on the menu were outstanding. Some eclectic and some common. Something for everyone. On the night we were there, there was "skate wing" and tempura fried zucchini flowers with peppers. There were good seafood choices as well as beef. The bar drinks were creative and they have a "cool" selection of vodkas and bourbons. We originally reserved our table for 5 people and added 2 more which caused us to have to dine earlier but they let us stay as long as we wished and the place was pretty crowded the whole time. Definitely would return again!

    My wife and I were driving up to Napa for a relaxing weekend. After getting caught in traffic, we were on 29 near Yountville and used my OpenTable mobile app to get an early reservation. It was our first visit. The service was wonderful; our server and the sommelier were knowledgeable, friendly and made great recommendations. The ingredient freshness, flavors, recipes are special. My pork tenderloin was perfectly prepared. The sommelier recommended a Hirsch San Andreas Fault Pinot that complimented the dish wonderfully. The sorbet dessert was a a refreshing finish. Dinner at Redd was a great way to spend a Friday early evening.

    For the past four years my wife and I have visited the Yountville area for four days in July and made dinner at Redd a top priority. During our four night stay, two are at Redd. Considering the other restaurants in the area, that's how highly we rate the Redd experience. Devon, the hostess, starts a special night by greeting us by name as we enter. How can she remember us? In our two meals we reveled in scallops with caramelized cauliflower , tomato soup with a melt in your mouth grilled fresh mozzarella/basil sandwich, petrale sole with clams, risotto with lobster, and grilled halibut. As I write this I want to go back for another meal. Can't wait until next year.
