Exceptional food presented family style with a nice wine selection and ambiance. If you don't mind the family servings you need to visit them.

I know Ad Hoc has it's followers, but really, Redd, Bouchan, Tra Vigne, Mustard's Grill, just to name a few, are so much better than Ad Hoc. While our meal was visually pleasing and delicious it was not exceptional. Also while the service is attentive, we did not find eating at the Ad Hoc to be a relaxing, enjoyable dining experience because the wait staff was too eager to remove our dishes. They need to learn how to read their patrons better. We really did not appreciate feeling pressured to finish our dinner.

We had not been back after a couple of so so experiences a year ago but our recent one was very good and restored our faith in this landmark. Lots of new faces but great food and service

This was our second trip to Napa this year, and both times we arranged to eat at Ad Hoc and it happened to be fried chicken Monday night both times. We were totally ok with that. As two people from Nashville, we know about fried chicken, and this stuff is amazing. Don't worry about the sides - you'll have plenty to eat with the chicken and dessert. And don't forget to get the wine pairing. Delicious!

My husband and I were in Napa for a conference for 4 days . We had heard mixed reviews about Ad Hoc but wanted to try it. It was a fantastic!! We were 40 minutes late for our reservation, but they still sat us. And we had a wonderful preset menu --incredible salad with leeks and watermelon and pumpkin seeds. They beef dish was huge and tasty. We even ordered the extra lobster roll. Come very hungry. The portions are very large. And the service was incredible. They were kind enough to pack the cheese course to go--we were just too full.
Ad Hoc turned out to be the best meal we had in Napa during our entire stay.
