It's been years since I've had "proper" fried chicken. This place was insane. Even the pasta salad was perfect. Addendum is right behind Ad Hoc (you'll see Ad Hoc easily from the street) and there is parking in the back.

Have you ever been in a restaurant and had a hard time deciding on your food. Then once you get your food the guy at the table next to you food looks better. At Ad Hoc they have one prefixed dinner a night. Problem solved. Good stuff!

Dining outside picnic style was what I like about this place. The food was good and it didn't take long for it to arrive on our table. Very clean area with the trees as a shade . Though I think since its in Napa, the prices weren't cheap. But then it's not often we will visit this place.

This is probably some of the best fried chicken I've ever had. Only open for lunch 11a-2p. Great little picnic area behind ad-hoc. Lots of shade for those hot days. I don't eat pork so didn't try the other 2 items on the menu. Cookie are small but good. I thought the lemonade was just ok.

We stopped in between visits to neighboring wineries and it hit the spot! Chicken was tasty and well seasoned. Had the weather been better the outside patio area would have been perfect.

Ad Hoc serves fried chicken on Mondays in their restaurant but you can get it every day at Addendum. It's very crisp, well seasoned and lightly sprinkled with rosemary. It's delicious! The soft, moist corn muffin that sits beside the chicken doesn't need butter to be delicious too. Then I come to the 2sides that are included with your lunch.... More

We discovered this place the last time we were in Napa and it was a MUST STOP for this trip. It is behind the restaurant Ad Hoc and is basically an outdoor service "shack" with picnic tables set up around it to eat at. They offer a very limited menu but we go for the Fried Chicken. We got a... More

This is the best fried chicken in the valley. It was tender and savory with the three pieces (thigh, breast and leg) more than sufficient for even big eaters. Two sides, a macaroni and a pea salad, were included along with a delicious lavender-buttered piece of cornbread It is served piplng hot from the Ad Hoc kitchen, boxed and brought... More

Addendum is located behind ad hoc so if you aren't familiar with Yountville you could miss it. Thomas Keller has become quite the Yountville food supplier. This outlet is much more accessible, price wise and time wise, to the average Napa wine tasters (If there is an average wine taster in Napa.) I'm glad because the food is almost always... More
