I have gone to Ad Hoc for dinner several times but this time, we went for Sunday brunch and the food is still amazing. For starters, we had yogurt with berries and granola, for mains, we had corned beef and potatoes. We had the add on of pancakes, then dessert was banana bread. The menu sounds simple but the food was really great and flavorful.
I was also lucky enough to meet Chef Thomas Keller since he was there meeting his French Laundry staff. What a treat!

Ad Hoc was an incredible dinner! We were there on hanger steak night. We had a wonderful little gem lettuce salad then the steak with fresh peas and roasted potatoes with some chunks of pork belly. Zucchini cupcakes with cinnamon butter cream finished the meal. Don't miss this spot!

We had heard good things about Ad Hoc so it was a little let down. It was a fried chicken night so we were looking forward to it since a lot of people rave about it. The meal is served family style which is fine but honestly we eat better than this at home. The fried chicken was a very dark, dark tan, not the golden color one expects from good fried chicken. It seemed like the oil wasn't quite hot enough and had to be cook longer to get it done resulting in the darker color and drier texture. The sides were okay. Overall the meal was acceptably mediocre. For your money I'd check out one of the many other restaurants

For the last four or five years we have told many people this is our favorite place in Napa valley and been here over a dozen times. Today we went for brunch and were really disappointed. We ordered the vegetarian brunch and were given a plate of squash and mushrooms with one egg each, along with the potatoes. My wife cant eat squash, which the other servers we have had in the past know since we were told they keep files on people, but he obviously didn't check or care since he never asked once how the good was or questioned why 80% was left, just if he could take it away. Never asked if we wanted coffee or tea after or anything really. We had to ask for the pancakes which didn't come unlike everyone else and got the supplement covered in bacon. A real letdown and we wont come back for brunch ever again. I hope this isn't a trend here. After paying $160 for 2 people for brunch you would expect to leave satisfied but that certainly wasn't the case.
