We had a 5:15 reservation on a Thursday night ... and we were one of the first people seated. We easily parked on the street in front of the restaurant. Because the menu is fixed prior to your arrival you need to check the menu to see if you are going to like the food. I'm a basic eater and... More

Yountville is saturated in fine, fine, fine dining. But between wine tasting, a restful stop for lunch with comfortable outdoor and indoor seating and reasonable and fabulous food, is a welcome respite. We sat outside, where only sandwiches and burgers were served: we never missed the full menu because our burgers and vegetarian sandwich were so delicious. You can linger... More

My wife and I enjoyed a meal at Ad Hoc after a wine tasting at Chandon in Yountville. The experience was excellent - the food was simple yet well prepared and served by friendly, attentive, and capable staff. We enjoyed the informal atmosphere and family-style service. We are relatively light eaters - there was plenty of food left over to... More

We visited back at the end of June and we almost went to Redd but decided to try ad-hoc instead. We think it was a good decision for us. Yes, the menu is set, but you can get it emailed to you ahead of time, which is a great feature. Service was very good and all the staff were busting... More

Fixed menu - 4 course dinner that changes daily. Family style. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Wonderful atmosphere. Accommodate Celiac without a problem - huge kudos on that. Gluten and gluten free food were delicious. Only problem was that it felt like they were rushing us out to turn over the tables as one course was finished and another one appeared... More

After eating at the two other Thomas Keller restaurants on Washington St, we needed to try out Ad Hoc and they did not disappoint us. For a 4 course prix fixe menu, they charged us $52/pp. It included a kale salad, orange glazed chicken, a cheese course, and a plum upside-down cake. Two sides, fried rice and green beans, also...

My wife and I happened to be in Napa Valley and wanted to go to the Thomas Keller restaurants. We went to dinner one night at French Laundry first...then went to Ad Hoc (dinner) and Bouchon (lunch) I liked that Ad Hoc was a bit more casual (not as formal as French Laundry). The food was good but the restaurant... More

We understood the menu was fixed and decided after some debate to take a chance. We loved everything we ate even though some of it was stuff we'd never order. The portions are plenty and everything is perfectly prepared and presented. We didn't do the wine pairings but instead tried some of their yummy cocktails. The couple next to us... More

Ad hoc has one family style menu per day. That said, while the food is very good, you better like it cause that's what you're getting. For our visit we had a delicious fresh orzo salad that I could have eaten all day long, along with a moist bread with crunch crust. The entree was a beautiful pork chop, but... More

We had a quick family dinner here one night (emphasis on quick - its pretty fast fire with the courses!) - We tried the optional Fried Chicken and this was the stand out dish of the meal. To be honest they could probably JUST serve the Fried Chicken and they would do equally well. Not sure if I could eat... More
