Fabulous picnic food and charming atmosphere

The food here is, without doubt, divine. I'm torn between a 4 vs 5 rating. Though the food really is THAT good, I thought it was very expensive for a picnic lunch with essentially self-serve/no service, so the overall value just doesn't quite cut it to get the top rating; hence the 4 stars... read more

This is another Thomas Keller gold mine. They serve 3 things, Fried Chicken, Ribs and Pulled Pork. You gotta have the chicken. It may be the most expensive fried chicken you have ever had but so worth it. I don't know what they put in it but it is addicting. I could almost eat a whole bucket! This place is... More

Yes, the fried chicken is good, if a little oily, but the sides that were offered on the day we visited were abysmal - a black bean, corn and cherry tomato salad that had no dressing, just beans, tomatoes, and corn kernels that appeared to be out of a can mixed together with no seasoning, and a shamefully bad, mushy...

I have been dying to try chef Thomas Kellars' famous fried chicken, which is normally available once or twice a month at Ad Hoc. However, during the summer months the Addendum shack behind Ad Hoc also serves the chicken during lunch time. We were warned ahead of time that the line for the shack would be long, and took advantage... More

This is a small shed directly in back of Thomas Keller's Addendum restaurant. You order either the fantastic fried chicken or the pulled pork, and find a place at a picnic table beneath the huge trees. Food comes directly to you from the Addendum kitchen. There is no corkage fee! We discovered this last year when we visited on the... More

The buttermilk fried chicken were so yummy!!1 it's nice there are several picnic tables near the pick up area in the vegetable garden. The setting is very pleasant. However, I would like to complain their pick up system. We ordered the friend chicken online several days before, they took so long to verify our order at pick up. They needed... More

I was fortunate to join friends, one who works at Far Niente for a tour and tasting, preceded by lunch in a gazebo. I told my fellow diners I would pick us up box lunches at Addendum because I can never say no to fried chicken which certainly was the star of our meal--crisp, seasoned and rosemary-scented breading surrounding juicy,...

Hidden gem. If you are looking for a quick, casual, tasty picnic environment this is your place. We ate the fried chicken and he ribs. Both were delicious!

Ad Hoc/Addendum is a must do while in Napa. The chicken was outstanding, but the sides were disappoining the day we went there. Potato salad and pasta salad. Ugh. With the amazing fresh vegetables available in Napa they served two mayo-y starches? Not cool. Even a boring green salad would have been better.
