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.

    We had the tasting menu with wine parings and it was fantastic. Unlike most tasting menus, they serve different dishes and wine parings to each person for all five courses. You get to share and taste 10 different incredible things and taste all 10 wines. Creative and the food was among our favorite meals ever. Also a good financial value vs. ordering wine from the list. Enjoy!

    Yountville is a real foodie town and I think Redd is probably at the top of the list and deserves any accolades going! The tasting menu is five courses and as we were two, we were presented with a different dish at each course, so we in fact tasted ten different dishes-amazing. Service impeccable.

    We had a great meal at Redd this week. Food was very well done. Service was also helpful, yet not overdone. There was a little extra noise only because we were on the outside patio and there was some road noise here and there.

    Chef / Owner Richard Reddington has worked at Michelin 3-star restaurants (Daniel in N.Y.; L'Arpege & Le Moulin de Mougins in France) * Spago in Beverly Hills * Jardiniere in S.F. * Executive Chef at Auberge du Soleil and it goes on & on. We chose the Chef's Tasting Menu. This consists of five courses for $80, with wine pairings it's $125. Some of the Chef's selections included Yellowfin Tuna Tartare * Caramelized Diver Scallops * Lamb * Pork Belly * Short Ribs * Petrale Sole and great desserts. We both received a different selection for the five courses, so it was nice to trade plates half way through each course (so we each had 10 tastes / textures) !!! Our server (and waitstaff) were on their game, upbeat, fun and knew their product.

    I ordered the NY Steak. I wanted a steak, but instead got just a few slices of a steak, and hardly more than one bite of a short rib. The plate came with an onion sauce that had very little flavor. My dish was served luke warm. I was very disappointed with my meal. My wife got a risotto dish and she enjoyed it. For a highly recommended place, I was disappointed. Our waiter and the service, in general, was very good.

    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 were so enamored of Redd after a fantastic Valentine's Day lunch that we vowed to return there for dinner next time we were in the Napa Valley. We were ushered to a great table as soon as we arrived for our 6:45 reservations. The first course of diver scallops for my wife and tempura squash blossoms with blistered padrone peppers for me were both outstanding. The preparation of these dishes allowed the freshness to shine. The second courses of the duck breast and the black stripped bass were also delicious and well-prepared. The chef shows a lot of intelligence in his cooking. The desserts of burnt butter pana cotta and the roasted strawberry ice cream with cheesecake was another example of refined flavors cleverly prepared.

    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.

    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!
