Casual, family-style fare in a low key atmosphere. Menu changes on a daily basis and you eat what they serve you! Our meal was delicious and a ton of food for just two consisting of a lovely salad with beets to start, BBQ brisket and two sides for the main, grilled cheese for the "cheese" course and Ice cream sandwiches...

My husband and I had dinner here a few nights ago and were a bit concerned after reading some negative reviews. We have traveled extensively and eaten in many fine restaurants and I must say, this was really fun and the food was delicious. This is a fairly casual place with no food choices so check the daily menu, and... More

We had a very nice meal, well presented family style with thoughtful ingredients. The Radichhio & Kale salad had green apples and radish - not a bit left. Next up - the flat iron steak - perfecly done and incredibly tender. We added the Huli Chicken which was "OK" Cheese course - gorwydd caerphilly cheese was bland and almost tasteless.... More

Wow, the brunch was special. We called ahead to see what was being served. This restaurant has a set menu each day. They are closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. On Sundays they serve brunch, then a different menu for dinner. This is my favorite restaurant in town. I love that you take a chance making a reservation because you aren't... More

It seems every time I am in Napa Valley the fried chicken is not on the menu at Ad Hoc. We arrived in California on Super Bowl Sunday and when I looked at the menu - there it was! It was delicious! A lot of food and we took some home and made a little picnic the next day.

We are so happy that this was the last place we ate before heading home. The food was delicious and the service was superb! Our server, Tom, was so knowledgeable about the food and wine and was happy to chat about both even though he was busy with other tables. He was so willing to check on options to ensure... More

The fried chicken was good if you like fried chicken. But pair that with Caesar salad and mac and cheese and you have a 100% unhealthy meal. Maybe my expectations were high because of the name but nothing was spectacular. Even the carrot cake at the end was a bit tasteless.

The setting is quite relaxed and comfortable. The wait staff is casually dressed but their level of service is right on par with a Thomas Keller experience. The food is elevated comfort, fried chicken, flank steak, polenta, roasted veges. Everything was delicious as were the cocktails. I will definitely will be back, but will fast all day prior to dining,... More

Wow. Fantastic food, excellent service, quite attractive. You get Thomas Keller food -- fresh, local ingredients, carefully prepared -- for a much lower price than at his famous French Laundry. It ain't cheap -- we spent $200 for meals for two, with wine and dessert -- but it's one of the best meals I've ever had.

the vibe is very very light to enjoy the food casually. relatively easy to take a seat, but I recommend to make a reservation.
