Very good, and plentiful, fried chicken

We are visiting the area and have been checking the daily menu online and the fried chicken showed up, so we immediately made a reservation. The place was packed but we were seated fairly close to our time. Unless you have a huge appetite, the portions of the 3 set menu is more that sufficient... read more

We were excited about being in town for fried chicken Monday and it was the best fried chicken I have ever had. Everything was served family style and there were maybe 16 pieces of chicken between 4 of us and we took half home. Southerners won't be disappointed.

This place has been on my list a while, but I usually don't have an interest when I look at the menu. The menu actually seemed exciting, so I finally tried Ad Hoc out. The ribeye didn't have much flavor, so that was a bummer. There was this cheese, focaccia, jam course that was excellent, and the dessert was also... More

Our first time out to the Napa Valley. The food here is very good. It's a set menu so there is always the chance you might get something you don't enjoy you will have to test your boundaries. But the food and service is great and definitely would recommend.

I had dinner with friends at this restaurant on Thursday, January 28 and I wish I had listened to my instincts after reading the current reviews about this restaurant, however my friends wanted to go. WHAT A MISTAKE! The service was below average, the atmosphere cold, and the food bland. How can they call something shrimp scampi and not be... More

To complete the TKRG punch card we had Ad Hoc on the way out of town for brunch. This is a follow up to our prior review. Ad Hoc is a fresh and well appointed restaurant in Yountille. The wait staff is friendly, knowledgeable and not fussy. The deal with ad hoc is that you get what they are serving.... More

We had eaten in almost every other restaurant in Yountville over our trips to Napa and Sonoma during the last four years and decided to give this one a try. What a disappointment. I am happy to pay $120 for a meal (for one) that is delicious, served by friendly staff and provides a memorable experience. We were served baked... More

Having been in Bouchon and French Laundry, I decided to try Ad Hoc when I read that Keller goes there to eat after work at the FL. Service was great. Food was good but I expected more in flavors and imagination. I took the wine pairing and that was the best part as wines were superbly matched to the food.... More

Food was very good but we were in & out in less than an hour . They squeezed the tables for 2 so close together you are having dinner with strangers . VERY ANNOYING - no chance to talk to your own dinner companion . Every time the waiters came by for the table next to us they were practically... More

It pains me to write this, but not as much as it did to experience a terrible and expensive dining experience that was uninspired, served with attitude, and completely unfair. Four of us, all in the food business felt the same. A pre-fix $52 meal with no substitutions. Dinner included just OK fried chicken, beans so salty they could not... More
