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.

Redd Ratings and Reviews
Excellent, knowledgeable, and professional service that allowed us to take our time ordering and enjoy our last evening in Napa. The yellowfin tuna tartare was a wonderful creation of tastes and textures. The Alaskan halibut was one of the best preparations I have ever had. This restaurant will not disappoint!
We loved this restaurant two years ago and we will not be returning again. The SERVICE was awful! We got seated right away on Saturday night. The restaurant was not full but appeared to be short staffed. Our waiter started off by saying the appetizer special was amazing but there was only one left. We ended up getting the lobster appetizer and it was fabulous. But we saw a few more get served to other tables so it was hardly the LAST one. He also left off the fact that it was $58. We enjoyed it nonetheless. We also had a tomato and burrata salad, gnocchi, potstickers and lobster risotto for appetizers that were all good but not great. The entrees were all god but not fabulous. There was a large amount of time between the appetizers and entrees, bread was requested as were water refills and they never happened. We finally spoke with a possible manager with no apologies and the waiter was arrogant when we told him he vanished for the entire meal. Hire more waiters and treat the customers with the utmost respect!
My husband and I both got the tasting menu. To my surprise, we both got different food for each of the 5 courses. We got to taste a wide variety of food. The first two courses were seafood, the next were more heavy dark meat and the last was dessert. My husband said the squab was the best thing he had ever eaten.
My wife and I celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary at Redd. Everything we ordered was delicious and perfectly prepared! The wonderful waitstaff pampered us and comped a beautiful dessert where they wrote: Happy 39th Anniversary! on it. It was a memorable meal. Thank you Redd!
Atmosphere was serene but not too quiet. Service was confident and understated. Good grasp of wine menu. Starters were to die for good! 3 of our 4 entrees were under-seasoned. Salt helped tremendously, but took a minute to get to the table. Otherwise food execution was excellent, fish cooked perfectly, etc. Desserts were also outstanding. Not a big butterscotch fan, but their version won me over. Would definitely return and recommend to friends.
Reed was a major disappointment. The first course I had was excellent. The following 4 courses were mediocre at best. My wife's dinner wasn't any better, some courses were okay but none really good. We had high expectations from prior visits some years ago, it is not comparable to what it was.
Was not super hungry so picked two items from the appetizer section, tuna tartar and the the hamachi collar with vermicelli noddle and veg salad. Both were excellent , the tuna tartar had the perfect balance of acidity, texture (crunch from the rice puff) and spiciness - really loved the little kick! The hamachi collar (fish) was tender and has a great flavor (simple preparation which is a test to the fish's freshness and it passed with flying color, and yes I am a seafood snob), the vermicelli salad (with shredded lettuce, cucumber, mint and peanuts) was so refreshing and reminds me of Vietnam, a great dish for a hot summer night! Paired my fish with Chardonnay from the region - crisp and mineral, perfect for my dishes and I had to ask for a second glass! Finished my meal strong with a butter scotch pudding topped with toffee and pretzel bits, what a treat!! Staff were super friendly, and the ambience is relaxed and quite. We opt for outdoor seating, the only thing that bugged me a little were the occasional flies...but I can't blame them for wanting delicious food...
Another wonderful meal. The food here is consistently delicious. Fresh, well prepared and interesting, The corn soup was great, both flavorful and rich. As always the chicken is perfectly prepared. Crispy skin, moist meat served on a bed of farro. The duck is another favorite and the serving size is quite generous. If there is any weak spot it is the desserts. They are good, but not to the caliber of the meals. But after large portions of rich and flavorful dinner, who needs dessert anyway? Our server was friendly, helpful and professional. Overall a great meal!!
Fabulous food and great dining service. My only complaint is the way the Hostess handled our arrival. She was on the phone and didn't bother to acknowledge our presence, no smile, no eye contact, nothing! Once she finally hung up she asked if we had reservation, I said we had one for 5:30 pm and for what she said "it's 5:27, you'll have to wait until 5:30" and went back to the phone...Whaaaat?
There was only one more couple in the restaurant (also waiting, I guess), visibly a full staff of servers and other employees anxiously waiting to do their job. This lady didn't even offer us to sit at the bar and have a drink or even make small conversation or explain to us why we had to wait for 5:30 (three more minutes) to be seated. Obviously I don't know their protocol as to how to handle reservations of patrons who show up three minutes early, but this was beyond ridiculous and very disappointing. If this is Management's "rules", I would suggest flexibility given the precise circumstances.
We had a couples dinner sitting at the bar and enjoyed talking to other guests as well as the bar tender. He fully explained the menu, which made our choices very easy. The food is great and the portions large. All items were cooked to perfection. This restaurant is highly rated and we will return our next visit.
We celebrated our 25th anniversary here and it was a very nice dinner. We had been to Redd on other occasions and each time it has always been very pleasurable. This time we had the tasting menu which was well worth it. We got to try the sashimi, fish tartar, scallops, the duck, steak and desserts. It was all very well done and presented. I enjoy going here when we are in the Napa Valley area. They acknowledged our anniversary and wrote it on the dessert plate!
This was my second time here. I brought a group of 6 this time and we had another AMAZING meal. We shared nearly everything. The tuna tartare, hamachi sashimi, pork belly, duck potstickers, and lobster risotto were all delicious appetizers.
The sole beat out the halibut as far as fish entrees go. We also ended up having 2 orders of the scallops; they rocked!
Also, if you're into wine, Redd has a master somm to help you with your wine selection. What a treat to meet a master somm! Still amazed!
The Coctails were pleasant, the fish was superb as was the sauce. This is the second time we have visited Redd and we will continue to keep it on our lunch A List when we visit Napa. We have been coming to napa for more than 25 years on vacation and Redd provides a very pleasant dining experience.
