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.

    Three of us wanted to treat our hostess to a special dinner as a thank you for a special 10 days at her house on the Big Island and then a few more nights in San Francisco and Napa. We have been friends for many years and get together once a year. Two of us live in New Jersey and two on the West Coast. We all chose two appetizers for our meal. The yellow fin tuna tartar was fabulous as was the duck confit and the lobster risotto. The tuna was spicy with just enough kick. The combination of tastes in the crispy duck confit played a symphony in the mouth and the lobster risotto with lemon confit burst with creamy flavor. Deserts were to die for. Combine the food with the great service and you have a perfect experience.

    Excellent food, expertly prepared and executed in every way. Pork buns are outstanding as was the hamachi crudo.Can't wait to go back and try dinner next. Clearly, this chef can do no wrong and this place is off the charts! Only comment is that our server could have been a bit more friendly and attentive.

    We selected Redd based on reviews and were very surprised by how underwhelming the food and overall experience was. Our party of 3 enjoys creative, flavorful food and has had recommendable experiences at some other higher-end restaurants in the Napa/Sonoma area including Bottega and Morimoto. Food Review: salad = good but not memorable, hamachi sashimi = recommend, tuna tartare = sent back due to lack of seasoning, dashi soup = requested salt due to lack of seasoning (note: dish needs rethinking overall), and skate wing = not memorable. Service Review: sommelier's recommendations were average to poor pairings, server was not phased by the table requesting salt and manager was apologetic and noted the Michelin star loss.

    Redd never disappoints. Food, service, wine and atmosphere are all consistently excellent, the ultimate wine country experience, time after time. Father's Day, with a large car show going on nearby, Redd was very busy. We arrived at noon, two dogs in tow, asking for one of our usual patio tables. Although we had a res, they can't always guarantee patio. Alas, all the outdoor tables were occupied and the wait looked long. Husband's car was in the show and he had only a short time for lunch. The manager was terrific; offered us complimentary drinks while we waited and found us a shady patio table in just 10 minutes. Redd is a superb restaurant by any standard.

    My wife and I went there for our anniversary, having read many of the reviews I knew to order tuna tartare, it was excellent as well as the skate which was also quit good. Both dishes had complex flavors and excellent presentation. We brought a few bottles of wine with us, being local to Napa, we expected a corkage fee, 25 was about standard, but given the challenges he had opening the bottle and destroying the cork, I was surprised they still added it. My wive chose the beef dish, the short ribs were good, but the rest of the dish lacked much flavor. The desert menu was interesting, but nothing that enticed us to stay. We sat in the patio and the service was excellent. A very nice evening together.

    It has been awhile and we were reminded again just how outstanding the cuisine and entire dining experience can be at Redd. The salads and soup is always great, the pork belly dish is the finest anywhere, and the scallop dish sets a standard that other restaurants can only aspire to reach but never do. The service is friendly, professional, and flawless. We will define lay be back more often in the future. Whether you bring a special bottle from home or order from their wine list, the stemware is always perfect.

    The food was fantastic! So perfectly seasoned every bite was wonderful. We shared the Shrimp Thai salad and every bite was gone. Then we split the Chicken with Asparagus and Pork Sandwich with Onion Rings and both were so delicious we could not stop eating way past full. We loved the setting. The big complaint we have while the staff was very friendly it took a very long time before our waitperson appeared to take our order and then a very long time to get just the salad. They were good about keeping our water glasses full and taking away dirty plates. I would recommend the food to everyone but tell them to be patient because it could be a long lunch of waiting. I want to give five stars but the service prevents me from doing so.

    I'm always asked as a bartender in the valley where to eat and I'm glad one of my top picks is always Redd. Richard never fails to impress! Went with a few friends in the industry for a farewell dinner and after 11 dishes and 3 desserts, I can honestly say that this was in my top 3 meals of the year, so far! The pork belly is to die for, either as a stand alone or as his take on the bao bun. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation soon.

    The service here was outstanding. The waiter was thorough in explaining the interesting, well thought-out dishes. My pork was somewhat tough, however, so I could not give it 5 stars. My husband loved the skate dish. The cocktails were good but expensive and were served in a tiny glass with a huge ice cube. Overall, a pretty expensive meal. The décor is sparse and stark. The fountain out front was broken so that did not give me a good first impression.

    We decided to go with the tasting menu and the wine pairings, which was a great decision! My husband and I both got different courses, and they were great about accommodating any food allergies. It was hard getting different food though, because only one person got to have the pork belly, which was absolutely delicious. Will definitely have to go again next time we are in Yountville!

    Stopped by for a quick lunch. The foods and service are up to their Michelin one star rating. The dip sauce for calamari is a little over soured in my opinion but it makes my beer tasty so I guess some of the flavor of the food is for wine pairing. Only downside is the tables are close to each other so probably not suitable for a romantic date when the place is full. However the price pretty much justify everything as most entree are under $30. In sum, I think Redd is a nice place to go with people you know for a long time.

    First of all, the food was fantastic! The beef was slightly under seasoned, but for the 5 course tasting menu (10 different dishes); 1 out of the the 10 is not bad at all. Great tasting food is always the most important and this hit the spot. Second, the outdoor decor fell short; for the high end restaurant this was, the feeling felt 'cheap', the chairs looked like high end IKEA, and it felt cold, not warm and cozy like the inside. It was our 10th wedding anniversary, with that being said maybe I was expecting a little more from them; so for special occasions, they do not do anything, so do no expecting anything. Should they have, yes, like most other restaurants.

    Had a great meal on Sunday (3 Skatewing and 1 Duck entree.). Exquisite food and great service. Came back the next night and the reverse occurred. Almost the complete reversal of the previous night. Almost a full hour from the time we walked in until food was brought to our table. People who came in after us were served before us. My wife's sole was grossly undercooked. Taken back to the kitchen and "nuked". When returned to table, the entire presentation was "lost" and there seemed to be only a small portion of the fish remaining. Called Host to the table and he said "he watched the chef fix the dish." He offered our table free desserts, but we are not dessert people. Eventually my wife's entree was comped.

    Went to Sunday brunch on the recommendation of a friend. I would consider it so-so. Had the corn beef hash - hard to find the corn beef. My significant other had a variety of sides - the potatoes tasted ok but certainly not as crisp as I would have expected. With so many other good restaurants nearby (including Bouchon and Bistro Jeanty - both of which I enjoyed more), I probably won't be back

    This one star Michelin restaurants offers good quality dishes for fair prices. It seems the waiters do not the rules how to serve, but they are very friendly. We like very much the Risotto and the duck confit. Their signature dish pork belly was not crispy outside and not soft inside. The scallops were slighly overcooked.

    There are so many good restaurants in the Wine Country it's hard to choose where to dine especially if you are visiting for just a few days. Redd Wood is at the top of our list. Over the last few years we had lunch there at least 5 times and dinner once. Every meal has been exceptional. The portions are generous. I highly recommend lunch or dinner, or both, at Redd Wood.

    This was my first trip to Napa and we dined at Redd the evening we arrived. The room is very contemporary, the service was excellent. There were 4 of us in the party and we each tried a different selection. The food was also excellent and well presented. We chose to accompany it with some wonderful Napa Valley wine selections. The restaurant is located in Yountsville, which is a beautiful, community with lush California gardens. While we ate indoors, we ended the evening with a walk-thru of the patio with an inviting fire burning brightly in the stone fireplace. This was an excellent start to our Napa Valley/San Francisco vacation.

    Unique wages tasting menu. As a couple, we were each given a different item at each course. Each of dishes was paired with its own individual wine. So over the course of a 5 quart tasting, we actually got to taste 10 foods and 10 wines. Food was exceptional. Wine pairings were nicely done. Restaurant was very noisy in no small part due to a large party that have been out wine tasting all afternoon.
