Wine is Fine, but Where's the Good Food (Napa)?!

Has anyone been to and would recommend any of these restraurants or others in the Napa area (mostly Yountville)? Anything off the beaten path/ethnic?? Thanks, LM
Bottega (the frontrunner)
Redd (a close second - menu looks amazing)
Ad Hoc (maybe better for lunch than dinner?)
Bistro Jeanty (very french which is great, but anything special?)

LM, you might notice that there is a blue link for each of the restaurants you mentioned (and I'll link up to Redd for you). Those places are highly frequented and have been reported on many times over the years. You can find those discussions and reviews, advice on what dishes to order, and other tips by clicking on the links to give you a better sense of each place as a start.

If you do a search on this board you will find many many references to the four you have mentioned plus many more. You might want to be more specifii about your spending limits, when you will be visiting and what kind of food you are looking for.
As others have mentioned, those you cited are heavily referenced on these boards and a little searching will produce a plethora of reviews for you to read.
As for ethnic, I can offer the following:
Zuzu - great tapas
Bistro Sabor - understated and great quality Latin American food
Neela's - expensive and just mediocre Indian food
Taste of Himalayas - newly opened and a bit more upscale than those by the same name in neighboring cities
Pica Pica - Venezualan available in the Oxbow market
C Casa - also in Oxbow, an exciting taqueria unlike every other standard taqueria in the area
Small World - hole-in-the-wall Mediterranean, only open for lunch; inexpensive and quite good
Mini Mango - elegant Thai bistro in downtown
Bui Bistro - French Vietnamese (haven't been)
Morimoto - Japanese fusion (expensive, but good)
Eiko's - Japanese fusion (mediocre)
Juju's Mediterranean - A little better than Small World, but harder to get to, off Trancas
