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.

Plain roasted chicken with crispy skin but no sauce or pan
Juices Made it bland, particularly the breast.
Wine by the glass was not as good as usual. Seems like they have gone down a notch since I was last there a few months ago

Food and service were excellent. They went so far as to open the windows for us since we had requested outdoor seating but didn’t want to 30 minutes. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating.

We sat at the bar and Jonathan took care of us, guiding us through all the pairings and even exploring some items that weren’t on the main menu. It was amazing, and I can’t wait to go back!

Ad Hoc provides a great experience: wonderful food & wine, excellent service. The garden salad was fresh from the garden & perfectly dressed. The grilled flank steak was served medium, as we requested. An almond cake dessert topped off our meal with delicious sweetness. We will dine there when we visit the Napa Valley again.

Food and service were fantastic! Meal moves relatively quickly which fits the vibe. Ad Hoc has a casual, friendly but very professional feel. This is not a 2 hour dinner, so know that going in. Service did not feel at all rushed to us, it just moves at a nice pace because the meal is served family style and there is one set menu. We are big fans after our first visit. Wish we had eaten here multiple times during our trip. Food is not overwrought or fussy, each dish was perfect.

Details
Waiter was very friendly and relaxed. Explained the menu and optional addition. He also made sure to mention that we could request second portions of any and all courses.

Cocktails were very good!

First course: green bean salad was absolutely delicious. Green beans,crumbled bacon, crispy onions, marcona almonds and ridiculously delicious house vinaigrette. We requested another 1/2 portion. Waiter apologized for the 1st course coming out before our cocktails. We asked him to slow it down a bit and he did. It may sound odd but I cannot explain how unbelievably good this dish was.

2nd course, hanger steak with sauce Diane, fingerling potatoes and something they called a Swiss chard bread pudding. Hanger steak was perfectly cooked and definitely the most tender hanger steak I’ve ever eaten, a tiny bit salty though. Potatoes were delicious but the Swiss chard bread pudding was beyond amazing. It really didn’t seem like a bread pudding but we didn’t really care what they called it, it was phenomenal! We had a bit of extra steak and the Swiss chard dish.

Cheese course was perfectly balanced—hot biscuits, homemade applesauce and a wonderful sharp semi hard cheese. We were really getting full at this point, maybe should have skipped second portion of steak

Dessert was an ice cream sundae. Homemade vanilla ice cream with choc sauce, caramel sauce and strawberry compote, chantilly cream and pecans. Delicious and a candle for husband’s birthday.

We had the Sunday Brunch Price Fixe menu and started our meal with a rich and creamy locally sourced Cottage Cheese served with a selection of sweet, fresh fruits consisting of kiwi, grapes, and strawberries!

That was followed by the succulent Buttermilk Fried Chicken and savory bacon & chive waffle, topped with flavorful Ad Hoc gravy.

We concluded our meal with the delightful Olive Oil Cake with lemon curd.

Everything was delicious!

I am SHOCKED that this is a Thomas Keller restaurant. If the man came in as a "secret shopper" he would be nothing short of horrified, starting with the bread basket. Food was ok if we were in one of those fast casual places, like TGIFriday's or one of those. Still can't get over this. Only good thing was the service.

Food is simple and terrific. Fun atmosphere and attentive service.

One note is that the suggestions for wine on the large blackboard in the front of the restaurant do not have the price listed but the year. From across the room it appears to be the price as it is listed on the end of the board and not next to the wine, which one would expect for the year. I paid $25 for a glass of wine I thought was $14. It was good though.

It gets a bit loud in prime time and you will be cozy with your neighbors. Fast service and perfectly paced meal service. In and out in about 1 hour and 15 min which is perfect for a couple having a nice meal.

We had a great experience at Ad Hoc! Everything was delicious from the garden salad to the lamb shank. The spicy fried chicken is a MUST add dish. It was perfectly prepared with the right amount of spicy and crunch. We definitely will be back the next time we are in Napa Valley.

I was disappointed, probably because I had too high expectations. While the food was well-cooked and the quality of the produce high, the salad had too many ingredients and an overpowering garlic sauce that drowned all the flavours (and could still be tasted the next day). The bbq sauce was too dominating. In general, I thought the menu lacked subtlety and balance of flavours and was too much on the heavy side

There is one set menu for the evening, so you are out of luck if there is a course that you don't like/are allergic to, etc. (We didn't know that's what they meant by "family style.") However! When my dining partner's face showed disappointment that the main course was beef, our amazing waiter offered her swordfish instead. We fell in love with the mushroom duxelles -- so creamy and delicious, full of flavor directly from the forest. The asparagus were cooked perfectly -- not too crunchy, not too soft -- with a tangy tomato topping. Fortunately the cheese was cow's milk because I gag on goat's milk cheeses. On the other hand, the dessert was a dark chocolate tart and my dining partner has a strong preference for milk chocolate. Also, the crust could have been a bit crisper and the whipped cream on top not so firm. Overall, we enjoyed the meal despite the noise level -- even at 9 p.m.
