I was lucky to schedule my dinner on Buttermilk Fried Chicken night. The food was well seasoned, with a crisp crust with a well seasoned brined chicken piece. The entire experience took me to greater culinary heights on a relatively simple meal. The 3rd course, a cheese course was a great enhancement to the meal, and the Lemon Ice Box... More

we were with a group of ten, and was a little weary of the fixed menu, but to everyone's delight the food was excellent and everyone enjoyed. Was a highlight of our napa trip

We were already going to French Laundry and wondered if we were going to get Thomas Keller overload but so happy we went. It was pork tenderloin night with...you guessed it, fried chicken supplement. The pork was pretty good but the fried chicken...out of this world!!! I've been to down home places and fancy places in the south and around... More

The food and service were both outstanding but know that the menu is completely fixed - there are no options. Don't like collard greens? If they're on the menu your S.O.L. because that's the only option.

Ad Hoc proved to be a very good dinner. Understand before booking that you are locked into the dinner being prepared for that evening. We had a choice on whether to add a roasted bone marrow with roasted cherries. It did not disappoint. The single menu may push you out of your comfort zone, which to me is part of... More

Tried Ad Hoc when we read about the daily chef menu. Figured with only one meal on the menu it would have to be good and it was! We were lucky to go on a night when the chef was serving ribeye steak and lobster mac and cheese. The meal was amazing and it was exactly the right amount of... More

Every other Monday is fried chicken night apparently. Two in our party have Celiac and we're just over the moon with being able to have real fried chicken! The food is fantastic. The atmosphere is loud but fun - this seems quite intentional. The restaurant was busy during Sept and I thought our server was good but over-extended (food runners... More

SO and I made reservations for both dinner and brunch and only planned to go to one. Dinner was so good we went back the next morning for brunch as well. It was amazing. The watermelon feta salad was one of my favorites. Steak and Shrimp-BEST shrimp I've ever had- for dinner. Fried chicken and waffles and yogurt with fresh... More

We had huge expectations given the chef's reputation but it didn't really come together. Although the family style format is good for a group, the dishes were not matched well and everything came at once after the salad, which was the unanimous choice as best dish. And that's coming from 4 carnivores. We expected much better.

A friend and I recently had an unexpectedly lovely meal at Ad Hoc. They serve a fixed menu each evening, generally with a salad, main course, cheese course and dessert. At a $52 price point per person it was a great value, and surprisingly good. We were there on an evening where they served an arugula and honeydew salad, New... More
