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 five course tasting menu at lunch, and split one wine pairing. Unbelievabley delicious and beautiful to behold. At 60 dollars a person for five huge portions we thought the value was terrific, too. We sat inside so we didn't have a view, but the food held our attention. Worth mentioning is that we each had separate dishes...so we actually tasted ten choices.

    The lication, ambiance and service was excellent. The food was very good. The roasted pepper soup was delicious. Duck with peaches was also very good. Because we were sharing I also had the scallops appetizer and the sole. The menu descriptions looked great, but the sole was very bland, especially when compared to the duck. The scallops were ok, but somewhat bland as well. I wouldn't order either of those two dishes again. Overall though, and with the other dishes which i enjoyed it was a good experience and I wiuld go back if looking for a more formal atmosphere and meal.

    We had a great dinner here. Skip the printed menu and go for the five course tasting menu. If you have two people each tasting course and wine pairing is different, so you actually get to try ten courses and ten wines if you share. First up was a delicious hamachi for me and tuna tartar for my wife, the tartar was one of the best I had. The hamachi was very good too. Then a coconut halibut dish for me with spicy clams and Carmelites scallops for her, both delicious. The NY steak and lamb with braised lamb were both outstanding, as was the chicken. For dessert, there were so many amazing flavors I don't even remember how to describe it, but was fantastic, all finished off with two bittersweet chocolate balls. Wine pairings were creative too

    This place has an odd ambiance, initially not inviting, very austere inside and out. But for some reason as it fills up with the evening crowd, it works beautifully. The wait staff is well trained and excellent, but a bit haughty. Although the timing of courses was almost a little slower than I would have liked, my group was able to sit for several hours; no one rushed us. The main selling point here is the food. It was spectacular- the lobster risotto, the pimientos des padrones, wow. I will come here whenever I am back in the area, you should too.

    Pluses: Great, great space. Excellent service. Very nice wine list and interesting cocktails. Dishes Tried: Chicken lettuce wraps; crispy calamari; shrimp noodle dish; hoisin pork buns; blt; lamb meatballs. Best dish: Calamari. Biggest complaint: Chicken lettuce and pork buns tasted almost exactly the same because both (particularly the pork) WERE DROWNING IN HOISIN SAUCE. Gross. Bleah. Not good. Next food complaint: The shrimp were great. The rest of the dish needed, um, FLAVOR.

    day visit to yountville for lunch on a scorching day in napa with friends visiting from out of town...recommended via the 2014 sf chronicles' 100 top bay area restaurants. simple but elegant, quiet, and cool interior (outdoor patio looked delightful but too hot that day). none of us had wine but the list was impressive. I was awed by my smoked trout salad with a daikon and creme fraiche dressing with roasted beets. then I was blown away by the savory sweet and salty taco-like pork buns made with mouth watering chunks of pork belly in a hoison sauce. too satisfied after that, but tempted by spectacular desert menu. try this place!

    We went thinking this was a Michelin one-star restaurant but realized later it lost its star this year, so this review reflects that. The service was wonderful - our server was sweet, smiley and hardworking - she was injured but kept limping along at full speed all evening to make sure everyone was okay. Our starters were red pepper soup, duck confit and pork belly. The pork belly was hands down the best and everyone wished they had ordered that. The soup was good, confit not as tasty as expected. For entrees, we had the prime NY steak with short rib, pork tenderloin and duck breast. The pork was a tad dry and kind of bland, steak was fine but not outstanding, and the duck was cooked right but not as flavorful as expected. Hearty portions!

    We adore this restaurant. It does happen to be located in the most charming neighborhood of Napa Valley. The food is truly inventive and consistently delicious. Service is polite and friendly. Outdoor seating is lovely. They have an outdoor fireplace. The ambiance is quiet and serene. During our last visit, I started with a red pepper soup, my husband had the tuna appetizer. Both were incredible. Perfect complimentary use of end of summer fresh corn. I continued with halibut and my husband with sole. Both perfectly cooked and presented dishes. I am sure we will keep going back to Redd every time we are in Napa.

    Sorry we used one of our nights in Yountville to eat at Redd. Tried unsuccessfully to move back a 6 pm table, only to see many empty later that evening. We requested outdoor seating when reserved, but were told the the couple in front of us got the last one, despite many empty tables outside. The next party to arrive was also seated outside. The salad was not much better than a chain restaurant, with one of the key ingredients being past it's prime. A medium rare duck breast was barely rare, sent back and disappeared until long after my dining companion had finished eating. They did comp the duck entree, but the food was not up to the hype, failing to compensate for the service flaws.

    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.

    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.

    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....

    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 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.
