Thomas Keller's Ad Hoc + Addendum was originally intended to be a temporary restaurant, but due to its loyal following, it was decided that it must be a permanent fixture in Yountville. Ad Hoc serves a prix fixe, 4-course family-style menu, which changes daily, and embodies the comfort food reminiscent of the recipes Chef Keller's childhood. Addendum is the restaurant's seasonal outpost offering buttermilk fried chicken or BBQ picnic lunches to be enjoyed in the garden or taken to-go.

What a wonderful start to our evening. We had no waiting for our table as we had a reservation. We had a friendly greeting and great service throughout the dinner. Our meal was wonderful! We lucked out with a great menu of ribeye, brussel sprouts and roasted fingerling potatoes. We had the add on of shrimp, sausage and grits which was delicious. The salad, cheese board and homemade ice cream filled out the meal to perfection.

Went for Sunday brunch. 2 drinks and 2 adds to the menu cost 160 before tip.

Salad delicious and good serving for 2 but noticed instead of 3 salads for 6 guests at next table the received only 2 of the same sized salad there is no need given the price to short change large groups.

Toast only comes with the eggs order and it's a single slice of a baguette per person. Waiter did not check on food or guests leaving no opportunity to get extra toast or butter. Only showed up after we finished eating and had waited for a further seven minutes.

Banana bread was dry. Thomas Keller mailed that in. Had high expectations for dessert and was disappointed. Cake was note baked that day for sure. Chantilly cream dollop added moisture but I needed a half glass of water to get the cake down

Waiter arrived after husband ate his and waited 7 more minutes. He asked if it was okay and I said its super dry. He offered if I wanted to try something else but I had lost hope that he would show up I gave up.
Tea or coffee was extra

I'm on the fence on whether I would attempt the dinner menu.

My wife and I had our anniversary dinner here. We love Addendum and have made at least a dozen visits to Bouchon Bistro and Bouchon Bakery over the years (CA and Vegas). We were somewhat underwhelmed by our experience at Ad Hoc. The food, while perfectly prepared and consisting of fresh & locally sourced ingredients, was quite plainly bland and boring. On the night in question, we had the spinach salad and roasted pork loin. The menu changes daily so I'm sure another visit would yield a different experience. However, with so many fantastic dining options in Napa, I'm not sure we would try our luck again. On a positive note, the service (hostess, waitstaff, bussers) was first rate.

Delicious food! Ad hoc is a difficult place to recommend since there is a singular menu. I am an adventurous eater so I was open to anything. I went here with my mom and she isn’t as adventurous... veal was our main entree and she wasn’t excited for it. She was pleasantly surprised (and I thought it tasted great). The rest of the menu was impeccable and I did the wine pairing (great value and taste with the menu). I would revisit this restaurant.

Finally got the fried chicken. Crispiest I've ever had. They always deliver on the side dishes, too (pepper mac 'n' cheese and sauteed cauliflower this night). Got a little too eager and ordered the additional option this night - brisket with sausage, cole slaw, and cornbread. Tasty, but really stretched the ol' tummy. Didn't have too much room for the onion jam/bread/cheese plate, and cupcake dessert. Pretty crowded on a Monday night.

I was so happy to have a warm basket of gluten free bread to start the meal. I reflexively tried to waive it off as I'm used to having no bread. Everything was delicious. I was sad that the dessert menu didn't have more GF options but the sundae was also delicious.

I've been here a few times but this particular time was a bit of a different experience. I came with two friends, one of which was celebrating a birthday. The service started off ok, but towards the middle of our lunch, there was a party that seemed to be frequent diners who were seated next to us. A lot of the staff came by to say hello to them and sadly after that it was like our table didn't exist. We couldn't flag anyone down, the servers who were right next to us serving the other table pretty much ignored us. We didn't mind since our table was pretty low-key, but when we finally wanted to leave, we flagged down the server to grab the bill and to be honest she was just rude. I thought it was just me but my friends also agreed. We probably waited 10 minutes before we were noticed again to have them run our credit card, and because we had to get their attention away from the other table, the server yanked the card out of my hand and honestly looked upset that I bothered her.

The other times I have been here have been amazing experiences, but this time our table honestly felt like second class citizens and it was not a great experience for a birthday celebration.

There were four of us celebrating a Birthday. While two of us selected the Special of the evening, Pork Belly the other two in our party were given alternative options of steak, seafood or vegetarian. Rib Eye steak and Halibut were selected. From the Salad to the Dessert everything was delicious. The Service was spot on. Net time we visit Napa and Yountville Ad Hoc will be on our list.

Simple. Delicious. Fantastic. A must go for any Napa trip. Each night is a fixed menu with rotating selections that include a salad, main course, side dishes & desserts. Our dinner last night: Squash salad, caviar, pork belly, seared scallops & the best redhawk cow girl creamery cheese with toasted cranberry bread & honey. OMGEEE!! 🤤

Very weird experience. Food was great as usual but the music was so loud we almost had to leave but our waiter was able to get it turned off.
Service started fine but then a party of 10 showed up and our waiter went AWOL.he did nothing but take care of them and their two Magnums of wine. The other tables around us were suffering too.
We knew something was wrong at Ad Hoc this night when we had to wait 15 minutes for our table with reservations. They were obviously having issues. We didn’t see a manager and it was very disappointing since it is usually a solid place for service. I hope it’s not a trend.
