“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

A number of people had recommended this place to us, so we decided to give it a try this trip to the area, and we were not disappointed! We were able to sit on the patio and enjoy the end of a lovely Napa Valley day! The food was excellent, as was the wine. Portion sizes were good without being too overwhelming. Service was great and attentive. Definitely recommend!

“Tasteless food, very small portions”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

The atmosphere was nice, and the service was good (not outstanding, but good). After hearing so many great reviews, my husband and I were shocked over the quality of the food. We went to Napa for our 30th anniversary, and made the reservations for Redd months in advance. We had high expectations. I ordered the Lobster risotto and was served a very small portion of risotto with 4 small bites of lobster. I always love trying different risottos as it is one of my favorite dishes. This dish was completely tasteless. My husband's appetizer salad was just ok...nothing spectacular. We contemplated leaving after the appetizers, but decided that maybe we had just made poor appetizer choices. For the entrees, my husband ordered a pork dish, and I ordered beef. Again, we were served extremely small portions of meat with 4 tiny potatoes rolling around on the plate. There was no difference in taste in either dish. It all tasted the same. We left hungry, and very disappointed after spending over $200.

“Fine imaginative food, contemporary setting, mechanical service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

Redd was our splurge fine dinner for our short stay in Napa Valley, with reputation for a superlative tasting menu at reasonable price. At first, we were dismayed to be received with icy attitude by the hostess. The dining room was full and cacophonous and we were told flatly that tables outside were spoken for. Thankfully where we were seated in the dining room was not so loud.

The tasting menu allows us -- a couple -- to enjoy different plates for each course: twice the taste adventures. All the plates were attractive, inventive, and prepared flawlessly. The fusion of European, American, SW, and Asian was fresh and surprising while completely in control: no gimmicks here. Our plates included dishes built variously around sashimi, scallops, pork belly, squab, duck, steak, short ribs, lamb. An example of a dish's complexity: pork belly, cinnamon, nutmeg, apple, caramelized onion, apple purée; the tart apple and vinaigrette went very nicely with the fatty pork belly.

The wine pairings were very nice, varied, spot-on.

The service was efficient, well paced. It was also mostly unengaged. The food and wine are the stars, but the best dining experiences come when the chef and his team express their passion for the experience. This meal felt like we were just buying the plates, even if they were all very good.

At the end, we felt pleased with what we ate and drank, but we found that "our socks weren't knocked off."

Nice ambiance, good wine list, very good food. A high recommendation and a cheaper alternative to the French Laundry

“A very upscale lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

We had lunch at Redd when first arriving in Yountville. The food is very good. We had chicken lettuce wraps and they were the perfect blend of flavor, spice and light dining. Yumm
