We loved the family style idea at Ad Hoc, and some portions were notably larger (like the ribs) because we were a table of four than other tables of two. But the polenta and greens were just about the same size, and so were the mussels for an extra $30 (1 lb) which were delicious, but over priced. The most annoying aspect of the evening was that if felt that all the servers were running around, and there was a rushed feeling to our meal... and it was fast! So don't come to this place expecting a feeling of leisure or coziness. At almost $300 for four people, it's hardly a good value, though delicious food!

Amazing dining experience! Sat at the bar rather than at a table. Best decision! Fantastic, friendly, hysterical bar staff! This would be my neighborhood spot if I didn't live 3000 miles away.

We had an unfortunate experience as the chicken was all dark meet wings and thighs and the menu fixed. Hard to eat that many carbs in one meal. Overall the food quality was very poor. To be honest chik Fila makes better chicken and I have had fried chicken almost everywhere.

I went there because I heard they had good fried chicken. The chicken must’ve been flown in from Somalia… It was the smallest chicken I’ve ever seen and more resembled a squab. I could not identify which part of the chicken the pieces were from. The breading was decent however it was doused in a chili pepper sauce more resembling a buffalo sauce which I cannot stand and it totally ruined it for me.
The pork chop was cooked perfectly and was tender and not too dry however they ruined it by putting a catchup like sauce on it similar to a meat loaf sauce.
Salad was fresh however I’m not a fan of arugula… That’s just a personal choice.
Way overpriced !!!!!
Nothing about it was memorable.
The service was excellent.

Restaurant is always great. Hade chicken and waffles and a lobster omelette. Service was not great this time. Our waiter forgot about us and left us sitting there waiting for the bill with empty plates. Three tables that arrived after us and got there food after us got there check and left. Service here is normally impeccable.

I’ve been to all of Thomas Keller’s places, ad hoc is pretty good! The menu is different every day so I’m not going to discuss the food other than telling you it was good.

For some reason the place has become super loud, everyone had to yell to hear each other and it created an ear piecing atmosphere.

I probably won’t be coming back, which is sad cause the food is great and it’s a good place to dip your toes in the Thomas Keller restaurant empire

From again.. first walking in and being greeted by Gabriel you are felt welcome as in someones home. I sometimes dine alone while on work trips and always have places sit you in the back corner or out of the way.. Not at Ad Hoc.. you are part of the family. From the service to the foods. This is one of the few places that I will eat anything. the chefs at Ad Hoc would never make it unless it was exceptional. Never fails to live up to my high standards..

It’s rare that we are not happy with our dining experience but Ad Hoc left us unsatisfied. The menu and family style concept is terrific, we loved the vibe and energy in the restaurant.
Maybe we went on the wrong night? The short rib was not well seasoned and the cheese plate was only 1 type of cheese.

I read the reviews about Ad Hoc which seemed to be either very good or very bad. I was torn whether to cancel the reservation because of those reviews. I was thinking that there must be a way to figure out how to interpret them The only way was to see for my self. The answer : Mr Keller should be embarrassed by this place. Basically I spent $240 for 2 for a chicken dinner and wine I could have gotten from a supermarket for about $25 minus the wine. As we drove to Ad Hoc we passed Bouchon Bakery where there were lines down the block waiting to get in. Our dessert at Ad Hoc was coffee cake from Bouchon Bakery. My conclusion about this whole experience considering all of the wonderful dining in this region DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME, MONEY Or TASTEBUDS ON THIS PLACE or spend time waiting in line at Bouchon Bakery. Those reviewers who gave this place a high rating better check the Cool Aid they are drinking.

The food was delicious and Ad Hoc was our best dining experience in Napa for that reason. The only downside is the fixed-price nature of the meal; a little expensive if you typically don't order four courses (if you do, then it's likely right in line with what you'd expect to pay). Overall, a good splurge meal for us -- and the fried chicken, especially, was fantastic!
