OK, limited menu, family-style, got it. When a restaurant's serving only one salad, only one primary entree (plus a couple optional ones), only two sides, and only one dessert, one would assume that each would be excellent. Think again. The dessert was OK. The supposedly...More

We love eating at Thomas Keller’s Ad Hoc! Cant say enough great things about this restaurant. Service is outstanding and the food is wonderful. Always packed but worth going to. Best price value meal in Napa. Also a fantastic Sunday Brunch. You will not leave...More

Totally different concept from your typical Napa Valley restaurants. Not pretentious, food comes out family style, i.e., platters of food for everyone at the table to share...family style. Not easy to get a reservation, typical Napa, but you need to be careful because they serve...More
