“Really interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

We visited Ad Hoc because we wanted to try a Thomas Keller restaurant without the commitment of French Laundry. We were intrigued by the single menu concept. It was very tasty and encourage us to try foods we would normally not. The only downside is that the restaurant is VERY loud and not very romantic.

“Not great as expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

We were so excited about our dinner at Ad Hoc. The four of us were very disappointed and could not give good reviews.

“Great dining experience for the adventurous”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

One of my favorite restaurants in the Yountville area because of the prix fixe and the unique daily "everybody gets the same thing" menu. No reason to sneak peeks at what the people at the next table are having because everyone gets the same salad or soup, entree, cheese course and dessert of the day. Service is impeccable with perfect timing and the food is delicious enough that my non-vegetable eating fiance eats the vegetables. I've only had one dish that I wasn't impressed with only because my white bean soup is better! To thoroughly enjoy the dining experience, you must have an open mind about what you will be eating and willing to try something you might not have if you were ordering off a regular menu. Bon apetit!

We had a wonderful meal here on 19 May, the food was outstanding with service beyond compare. The wine flights were well chosen and accompanied the food very well.

“Not going home hungry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

Simply outstanding food and service. Served family style. Lucky enough to get in on a Saturday early evening. Enjoyed a refreshing Lil Gem and Tatsoi Salad, Grilled Hanger Steak. Mushrooms, Broccoli, Cabbage Pork Belly Fried Ricea in a Smooth Terriyaki Sauce, A Passmore Ranch Black Bass Whole, followed by a Petit Basque Cheese with Flat Bread and Fresh Jam. Ending the night with Carrot Cake. Nice Bottle of Wine. Sorry, forgot the name. Spicy and Oaky Flavor. Definitely will go back
