Set menu Sunday brunch is really unique

Brunch on a set menu. Very unique. Especially the Ambrosia Salad that is made of various fresh fruits sprinkled with baked coconut chip. Single basil leaf give it a kick to a high tone. I can come here for salad only. Well, not so fast. Doesn't this place serve chickens everybody is talking about... read more

Maybe because our expectations were so high, this particular experience seemed just average. Service was solid and food was pretty good (believe me we didn't leave with an appetite unfed), but just didn't feel like we had an experience that matched the Keller hype.

This place gets very hyped because of the Thomas Keller name and the idea of what they are doing here, but it's just that, hype. We were greeted by a hostess with a pretty nasty attitude who didn't smile once and, even though we had reservations (that we had made several months in advance), made us wait 25 minutes for...

We wanted a Thomas Keller experience whilst in the Napa Valley and decided Ad Hoc fitted with our budget and style. The restaurant offers a relatively casual ambience but the food is really excellent. Given the menu changes each day, there is no point in describing the individual dishes we ate. However we can confirm each course was absolutely delicious,... More

What an incredible experience we had! To start off the menu is already chosen for the night. It began with a delicious salad with thousand island dressing. I have never been a fan of thousand island until now. I have even made it at home because of how delicious it was at Ad Hoc. The next course was a wonderful... More

Unfortunately our experience tonight at Ad Hoc was very disappointing. There is nothing about farm to table in this restaurant. The salad was the best part of the dinner but it is difficult to go wrong with a salad. The ribs were very cold and dry, they had no sauce. The fried chicken was uncooked and very greasy. The dessert... More

We had a good homey meal here and everything was super fresh and delicious! Tomatoes were awesome and everything was colorful well done. Simple and straightforward.

I was really anticipating eating at this Thomas Keller restaurant and although it was more casual then I thought it would be it exceeded my expectations. Our server was very personable and always had us laughing. The food was so delicious and fresh. Who knew fried chicken could taste so good?! The salad with fresh apricots, walnuts and greens from...

We went here Monday night because we knew it was the fried chicken dinner. I was expecting a lot since it's Thomas Keller's restaurant but we were beyond impressed. Everything as amazing from the salad, to the chicken and sides, to the cheese course and the dessert. Plan ahead because they book up fast but it's well worth it!

Went back to Ad Hoc because of the great service and food the first time. So disappointed this time , mostly with the erratic service It was not even full, so I was perplexed why the servers were so off. Took forever to get more water and salt and pepper since seasonings were faint in most dishes including the short... More
