About

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.

We came in for Sunday brunch on a weekend where they were serving chicken and waffles. The pre fixe family style brunch was delicious from start to end. It might not be a good choice if you have picky eaters, but for anyone looking for a solid start to a day of wine tasting in Napa, you can't go wrong!

This our first time at Ad Hoc our party had a great time. Unfortunately we didn’t get to the try the famous fried chicken but the dinner did not disappoint. From the cocktails to the main courses to the desserts we enjoyed our experience from end to end. We look forward to our return!

Everything on the Sunday brunch menu was great- between my wife and I, we covered the regular menu items and the add on items as well. The fried chicken was amazing! Poached eggs on brioche toast, lobster mac, and the pork belly hash all were excellent as well. Must go back next time we're in town!

Pork short rib was inedible due to massive amount of fat...very disappointing
When I complained, no one ever got back to me until, as I was leaving the restaurant, I commented about it to a server and he told me the chef said they had gotten a fatty shipment for dinner that evening.

We made a reservation for dinner at 8:15 on a Saturday, arrived on time, but apparently it was not a day to have on-time seating. we waited almost 1 hour! I complained nicely 40 minutes in and got comp'ed with some drinks. It was disappointing to have to wait so long. Once we were seated, the service was prompt, and the food was abundant and tasty. So, hopefully the late seating was a rare event, and you will enjoy the food. The music and people were quite noisy, so it is not a romantic place to eat.

The food was exceptional except for the meat. Even though we sent it back for a better cut, the New York loin second cut was still chewy. No criticism to the chef, as the sauce and taste were amazing, but the meat he received was just ok. As always the wait staff were also exceptional. A little unhappy with the reception desk. Showed up 5 minutes early for our reservation and had to wait 30 minutes to be seated. However, the table we were sat at was perfect, by the window, and with the same waiter we loved from last year.

I was excited to eat at Ad Hoc again after a great first experience some years ago. I made a Saturday lunch reservation, and only later realized it was a special limited menu of " burgers & half bottles". I wasn't super excited about having just a burger, but I figured it is Thomas Keller, if he is going to put just a burger on a menu, it is going to be a damn good burger. I was wrong. Unfortunately, it wasn't just the burger that was a major disappointment it was the service as well. We were greeted and told a simple cheddar cheese burger with lettuce, tomato, onion and aioli would be served with a starter salad of greens with a lite champagne dressing and a pile of fries. We ordered half bottle of wine and almost immediately we were brought a platter of greens. Very boring, not enough acid, tasted like wet lettuce. About 3 bites into the salad the burgers were delivered to our table. The small 2-top only fit 3 plates, so of course there was no room for the burgers and salad plates. We awkwardly tried to maneuver the space ourselves, by putting the our salads back onto the large plate in the center of the table, with no help from the servers, to accommodate the ill-timed main course. So there we were, wet lettuce, pile of fries and a couple of big burgers. The bun was so big, I had to deconstruct the burger to eat it. The burger was ok, nothing special and not worth $25. The only thing that lived up to our expectation was the wine, it was delicious. Between the pacing and quality of food, it was an incredibly disappointing experience. I recommend you hit up Gotts at near the Oxbow Market for a better burger and a better value.
