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.

    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!

    We came here for our anniversary and were not disappointed! The menu had so many great selections that our original plan was to order all the appetizers we liked and then perhaps split an entree. We never made it to the entree! We ordered two of the special appetizers - oysters on a half shell, and the soft shell crab (both delicious) - and 3 items off the menu. All were incredible. Even though we were stuffed, however, we ordered two desserts (also amazing), which topped off an outstanding dinner. We will definitely go again (especially to actually try the entrees!). We are foodies, and we have gone to some extraordinary restaurants in the Napa and Sonoma area, but this one launched to the top for us. Highly recommend!

    Always incredible. Had a 2 1/2 hour lunch there last Monday. I brought a special bottle of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, asked that it be decanted, and explained we would be there for awhile. Ordered a bottle of Champagne and a dozen oysters. The wines, oysters, apps, and mains were all delivered as professionally as one comes to expect from Redd and the "delayed" our service exactly as requested. Even if the service wasn't great, you need to come here because of the food. It's always memorable and prepared perfectly. It's also a value if there is such a thing in Yountville. You can achieve semi-decent pricing in Yountville (R&D, Ciccio, etc.) but you can't achieve them while dining at this fine of a restaurant.

    I usually love redd and try to go there for our anniversary. This last visit left me looking for another place to spend our special night. The service was not what it usually is, maybe we had a new waiter. The food wasn't as creative or tasty as it has been in the past. I didn't finish my dinner because I didn't care for it and the waiter never came to ask how we were doing and We actually left without dessert because there wasn't anything we wanted. I can't find excuses for it because we were there when they opened for dinner and it wasn't crowded yet. Bummer.

    This was a top notch experience. The food is modern and very eclectic. Sometimes flavor doesn't match when it is that modern, but it does here. We did the tasting menu along with the wine pairings. We each received different items for each course which made it all the more fun. More tasting opportunities. The standout for me was the Skate. We were very excited to go because everyone we encountered prior seemed to have already dined here and loved it.

    The food and service was delicious at Redd. My husband and I ordered some small plates/appetizers and split a salad an entree. The menu was so full of delicous options, we wanted to sample as many as we could. The blistering peppers and lobster risotto were spectacular. The panzanella salad came with a very nice salad dressing. The Sashimi Of Hamachi was very tasty and super fresh. The scallops were the best! We finished off with the Champagne sorbet, plum consommé, lemon verbena granite- out of this world great. I would recommend any and everyone to check out Redd.

    Brunch was wonderful. The lobster club is fantastic - served on sliced brioche that melts in the mouth. Our only quibble was the odd seating choices. In a fairly empty dining room, another couple was seated right next to us at the banquette. They asked to be reseated and felt compelled to apologize all around.

    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.
