Redd Restaurant Review

: Chef-owner Richard Reddington is well known in the Northern California culinary scene, having worked his way through a number of prestigious restaurants. Despite his talent in classical French cuisine, fusion is key here as he brings in Asian, Mediterranean and California influences. The menu is set up as a series of small tasting courses which can be ordered à la carte or as part of a five-, seven- or nine-course chef's tasting menu. A seemingly standard offering of butternut squash ravioli is elevated beyond the ordinary by an accompaniment of perfect squares of miniature autumn root vegetables. Risottos are a specialty of Reddington and his ability to combine lobster, preserved lemon and truffle showcase that mastery. The minimalist décor is austere to the point of being cold, but the impeccable service provides a balance. California wines are the norm, but many are rare and hard-to-find providing a very comprehensive list.

Awful, would not go back
by davepl99 on Tue Aug 24, 2010 9:04 am
This was an extremely bad dining experience. While on vacation, my new fiance and I stayed at the Vintage Inn in Yountville. We had a 5:45 pm reservation on 8/19 at Redd and requested an outside table. Debbie, the hostess told us they were all reserved so we ended up eating our dinner looking out at the outdoor space which remained at least 50% empty for the rest of the night. The hostess and manager were completely unapologetic and very snotty about it. Besides that, the dining room where we ate was full of flies the entire time and the chicken dish was so tough that my fiance had to send it back. I strongly recommend against this restaurant. It was not worth the time or money.
