Our waitress was attentive
Our waitress was attentive and has a great memory for the specials. I loved my very tasty fig (vegan) pizza and my friend ate every bit of her burger. We shared a chocolate, caramel. salt torte for dessert and it was the end of a perfect lunch.

A Return Visit Is in Order
My dining companions "out ordered" me at our Sunday lunch here. Their seasonally appropriate salad of melon (cantaloupe) & tomato was a refreshing treat; the short ribs entree was described as "the best short ribs I've had -- EVER." On the other hand, the Caesar-like salad i had was unexpectedly disappointing for the sweet tasting dressing; and the pasta dish of fettuccine with gulf prawns perfectly cooked was bland. A tomato sauce, basil & mozzarella pizza had a perfect thin crust but "boring" tomato sauce. With such a mixed review, and not having sampled any of the desserts, I'm building a case for dining here again.

I have been wanting to try
I have been wanting to try Redd Wood for awhile and finally got to go for a casual lunch. Loved the pizza! Will definitely good back!

Having thouroughly enjoyed Redd on previous occasions my friend and I thought we'd give this more casual spot a try. We were seated immediately and our server was prompt and efficient. The squash blossom appetizer we had was incredible! We opted to share a pasta and a pizza for dinner and both were excellent. The Prosciutto Crudo, Fontina, Arugula, Grana Padano, Black Pepper pizza was perfectly cooked with just the right amount of topping - every bite was a delight. The next time I'm in Napa Valley I am definitely going back to Redd Wood!

delicious and value for the money
There are not a lot of 'cheaper' options in Yountville.... and while not cheap exactly I thought Redd Wood was great food for the price. We ordered appetizers and pizza- both were delicious!! We also tried the house made ice cream which was wonderful and unique. we will definitely be back! The atmosphere was lively and fun- service was friendly and of good quality.

Second time, still great food, very cool place...they need to work on their service.

Perfect End to a Wine Country Day
After a day of tough duty tasting wines, Redd Wood offers a wonderful Napa dining experience. The menu is creative and the food masterfully prepared. The wine list is well designed and extensive. The vibe is casual, but sophisticated and the service is attentive. The integration of its interior and exterior dining spaces indicate that a thoughtful design that fits with the Yountville style.

Piazza Italiano in Yountville
Fantastic Napa versions of traditional Italian dishes. I love dining al fresco in the courtyard.
8/15/2013 5:00:00 PM
From the host, water server, expediter, and waitress--- excellent service! Pizza crust was a little soggy in the middle so we were not able to pick it up with our hands.... perhaps the dough wasn't stiff enough. Bummer too, the kitchen ran out of pepperoni 15 minutes before we placed our order. We have another reservation for when my Mother comes into town so we will try the pizza again then. Thanks!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
For a place that is considered the more casual restaurant of the two owned by this chef, it is hands down amazing food and great service. We arrived 15 minutes late and I thought for sure we had lost our table - they were extremely accommodating and understanding and sat us immediately. The wait staff is awesome. Although you have a designated waiter, they still work as a team to ensure that your table is happy and needs are met. We ordered meatballs for appetizer which were delicious. Main dishes we ordered the fig and goat cheese pizza and the short ribs. The pizza was definitely good but it is also just pizza....the short ribs, absolutely to die for. We live in Santa Barbara and so wish the owner would come down and open one up here!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another fabulous meal
The service is outstanding. The pizza is the best. The food is so delicious. Reddwood is always our go to restaurant when we have guests in town.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and fun ambience
We had a wonderful experience at Redd Wood. We came for dinner and started with the fried squash blossoms. They were delicious and also included som green beans and squash. We then shared a chopped salad which was light and refreshing an a beautiful balance of flavors. The portion size was quite large! For entrees my husband had the short ribs which were absolutely fantastic. I wanted to try their pizza and there were so many choices that sounded delicious that I couldn't decide. Our waiter recommended the mushroom and it was a great call. We had a bottle of GSM and it was an overall great meal!
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Terrific Food, Expansive Wine List
Dined here last night. It is a great spot. Food was fresh, local and very creative / tasty. Wine list offers much locally as well as many great selections from outside the U.S. Service was very prompt but a little 'affected'. Look past the subtle attitude of the servers and enjoy the food / wine / and beautiful surroundings.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
All Around Good
We had an enjoyable meal at Reddwood. The food was excellent: the stone fruit salad the best of all, the short ribs and the mushroom pizza were memorable. The wine advice was right and the service relaxed and attentive.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great casual option in Yountville
We enjoyed dinner n the side patio, which was peaceful and just really pleasant. The pizzas are very good, the fried oysters on potato salad outstanding, the heirloom tomatoes yummy, chocolate caramel tart great. It was a wonderful place.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great interesting flavors and food presentation!
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed patio dining at Redd Wood. Although the day was warm, the patio was kept cool with well placed umbrellas. Salads were generous and delicious. We also had wonderful, crisp crust pizza. Great selections of wine by the glass. Excellent service from a young waiter who was pleasant and professional. The piped in music was distracting and rather odd, but that was the only negative. Loved the setting! We plan to return to Redd Wood.

Definitely will return. The stone fruit salad was amazing as was the goat cheese and fig pizza.

Delightful Dinning Experience
The food was outstanding. The staff was friendly, courteous and quick. We will definitely be back.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The location in the heart of Yountville and, most importantly, the best pizza possibly in the world, keep me coming back as often as possible. This place is the best.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fresh ingredients stand out
Great salad with delectable, fresh, flavorful vegetables. Pizza was amazing. Overall excellent experiende

Food was wonderful...service
Food was wonderful...service great...would highly recommend this restaurant and would go back again.
Loved the beer selections - nice to have choices when you don't want to drink more wine.
Loved the relaxed atmosphere - decor fabulous - connected to North Block Hotel.

Great gourmet pizza
Enjoyed for casual dinning in Yountville. After days of rich food and too much wine we enjoyed a simple casual meal at Redd Wood. Food was still creative with fabulous flavors but good to share a pizza and bowl of soup. Fabulous staff too.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dinner! I had the gemelli with bolognese for my main, and cannoli for dessert. Simply delicious food in a casually sophisticated and unpretentious setting where the service is efficient and genuinely friendly. This was the least expensive and most enjoyable retaurant we visitied during our four day visit to Napa.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
It's in the crust!
Great Neopolitan crusts on the pizzas! A must in my book! Glorious wine list!
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
More than Pizza
Dined at Redd Wood with a group of four. We started with drinks and the meat and cheese platter, which was very good and beautifully presented featuring their charcuterie, fresh fruit, and local cheeses. Followed with two of their pizzas, which were delicious but very spicy for two of our diners. I think it was the chili flakes, but the wait staff should warn diners about the heat level for those that don't enjoy spicy foods.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We liked it so much we went back twice. The Brussell sprout salad was the best salad we have ever had. The service was great and they bent over backwards to accommodate us. It was great!
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Italian done right
Ever since living in Italy I consider myself an Italian snob. I often opt out of the American Italian dining experience because it pails in comparison to the "real thing." Redd is one of the few Italian dining experiences to meet my uppity views. I had the linguini with clams and a shared pizza to start. Everything was perfectly cooked and seasoned. I will definitely repeat this experience the next time we're in Napa.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Light, flavorful, satisfying!
We visited Redd after reading a review about it recently in Travel and Leisure Magazine. What a perfect stop over for the visitor or local while enjoying the fruits of the Napa valley! Bright, modern yet exuding warmth this new trendy restaurant offers something for everyone who is a pizza aficionado or just enjoys great flavors without the stuffed feeling of a traditional Italian meal.
We dined outside in the late afternoon and enjoyed four scrumptious appetizers followed by two delicious perfectly prepared pizzas. Topped off by a waitress who was friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and enjoyed what she does, good ol customer service with a smile!!
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Redd's on a budget
Since we live in Napa we have been to the Redd Wood right after it opened. We were pleasantly surprise by how much better it is now. We will be back. Since it is run by Redd's which is also in Yountville we found it to be very professional but at a much lower cost.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great pizza in Yountville
Very gourmet and tasty pizzas. Our waitress was kind of dumb but the service was fine. Very trendy and fun. Packed restaurant so make reservations. Big portions and very fun drinks too. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the seasonal pizza with
Loved the seasonal pizza with pureed butternut squash instead of red sauce...topped with kale, bacon, cheese and more! AND, the brussell sprouts salad was the best I've ever had....!
10/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
Food and service were superb. One of the best in Yountville.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We like to eat at Redd Wood when we stay in Yountville. Unique and delicious salads and special pizzas. Highly recommend you try it!
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The moment we arrived our reservation requests were noted and honored. The menu was varied and creative. The food lived up to the billing with great pizza and pasta. Don't miss the deserts especially the mini Carmel topped cannoli. The outside setting in the shared courtyard had a European feel. The knowledgeable and attentive service was an added plus. The parking due to the popularity and the hotel was challenging.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our experience at Redd Wood was great. The salads we had were fantastic: my husband said his was the best he had ever had (brussel sprouts), and my beet salad was delicious. We also each got a pizza and they were very unique (mine had pear), and fantastic! The staff was great, the ambiance was casual but nice. Overall a great restaurant experience!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Salad was the Star!
Convivial place with tasty, crafted food at reasonable prices. Plus one of the best salads of our lives. The brussel sprout salad was a masterpiece of flavor. It was suggested by our waiter, who was perfect: very responsive, warm, yet brisk in a good professional way. He warned us that the cavatelli pasta is for those who like salt. We agreed it was salty but were ok with that. However we both thought the extreme yumminess of this dish would have become transcendent if only they had cooked the pasta a bit longer. The pizza was good, but less noteworthy than the salad or pasta, and alas, that dish was really too salty. Enjoyed Redd Wood, would recommend it, and shall return, now knowing to say "hold back on the salt and boil that pasta."
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great neighbourhood spot
I walked to meet a friend and we shared plates
Great service and heaters made outdoors eating easy.

My #2 in Yountville
Pleasantly surprised by the quality of Reddwood, and at a bargain price! While the obvious heavyweight in Yountville is inimitable, our experience at Reddwood featured first-class food and top notch service while maintaining a (welcomed) casual atmosphere. Cannot recommend enough!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice find for a more casual
Nice find for a more casual evening in the wine country. Pizza was very well done and unique; first time I've had pizza with teleme cheese and kale. Loved the beet salad and pasta was generous and tasty. Restaurant design was spot on for low key ambience.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Pizzas To Die For
Three of us shared two delicious pizzas and were perfectly satisfied. I'd go back in a heartbeat, but probably without my hard-of-hearing friend. The blunt solid surfaces of the restaurant, especially when filled with groups of happy drinkers, makes conversation difficult.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
love love love the food!
Super salads, incredible pizza's, the starters are the bomb!
Never ever ever take the burrata off the menu!
And the brussell sprouts with caulifower, youza!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, great sevice
We are locals and have been meaning to try Redd Wood. We finally got there and are very glad we did. The service was excellent, attentive but not hovering. The food choices were so appealing, I had trouble deciding on what to order. My choice was perfectly prepared and my husband loved his too. The warm olives were a perfect start, not too much in anticipation of dinner.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great casual Italian food
We had both lunch and dinner at Redd Wood while visiting Yountville. For lunch, we both had an excellent hamburger with fontina cheese and caramelized onions on a brioche bun. It was cooked perfectly, tasted great. Parmesan fries on the side were a bit too crunchy. At dinner, we shared roasted cauliflower and Brussels sprouts as an appetizer. My husband had the gemelli pasta with a bolognese sauce. He is Italian and thoroughly enjoyed it. I ordered the nightly special of Italian sausage with lentils. It was very good and I would order it again, but it would be even better if the sausages were roasted and not fried.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Redd Wood = Very Good!
Always enjoy the lively atmosphere, pizza (imaginative and properly blistered), generous salads and tasty cocktails. A must visit when we find ourselves in Yountville.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
The best pizza in the world. No joke. Everything on the menu looks fantastic. I don't think you can go wrong at this outstanding restaurant.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfect wine country lunch
Experienced some amazing weather during our Napa Valley weekend and this was a great place for lunch and people-watching. Cool, hip ambiance. Loved the pizzas, especially the sausage with chilis. Toppings were not skimpy at all. The bolognese pasta was excellent. Friendly service. Will have to go back for dinner some time.
