As is to be expected from a Thomas K restaurant, the food is great. We went on a day when NY strip steak was the main dish. Because I didn't eat steak, I was able to substitute a delicious salmon with polenta. Everyone who had the steak was very happy. The salad was not particularly special- iceberg wedges with cherry...

I am a foodie and must say this is my favorite TK restaurant. Food is amazing and fresh. The menu is changed daily so there is always an element of surprise. I absolute love this place. Take the seat at the bar!

We had the first dinner of our most recent trip to Napa Valley at Ad Hoc and were beyond pleased with the food and the outstanding service. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about the menu offering, history of all the Thomas Keller restaurants, and conversant with recommendations for our trip to the area. Keep in mind, this restaurant offers only... More

Ate for dinner on a monday for the 'fried chicken' night. It was AMAZING. Delicious and WAY more food than my husband and I could eat. We absolutely loved the restaurant and hope to make it back if we ever come out to Napa again!

I was so looking forward to Ad Hoc after having eaten at Bouchon and Bottega on previous nights and had delicious, beautifully constructed meals at both. What a letdown. There is one set menu per night, served family-style. Tonight's menu began with a tomato salad (mostly from the garden out back) followed by a Flat Iron steak with vegetables, a... More

No bad attitudes here. Reservationists, greeters, servers are all professionals yet very casual and low key. Food is exceptional which is celebrated yet almost underplayed in this very laid back casual restaurant.

Always busy with a trendy, but relaxed, vibe. What makes them famous is that they really only have one menu choice on any given night: meat or vegetarian? Either will be exquisite (the fried chicken is out of this world if they are serving it that night). Trendy wines, and not the most expensive choice in the valley by a... More

The service (when available) was very good. Knowledgeable staff. Food was very good. Huge portions, and well crafted. Anytime I'm paying $100 pp for dinner, I have a high expectation. Finding soap from Target (Method brand) in the restroom is simply unacceptable. The price of the food contributes to the overall experience, and using cheap soap diminishes from the experience....

This place is another of Thomas Keller's creations. The atmosphere and ambiance are very California casual. The bar area looks like a great place to hang out and enjoy some fine wines. On the night we selected, we were promptly seated by the very courteous hostess. Our server was efficient and attentive without being intrusive. The food was out of... More

Liked the idea of comfort food, but the execution did not live up to its hype or the price. Perhaps my expectations were high based on my experience at Marcus Samuelsson's Red Rooster, but Thomas Keller's fixed price fried chicken dinner at $300 ( with wine) was quite a disappointment: a glorified KFC meal for the snobs , who were...
