On our last evening in Napa, we went to Ad Hoc which is the causal one of the three restaurants owned by Thomas Keller in Yontville. It was busy, but we had a reservation and was quickly seated. It was fixed menu, started with a...More

Poor service. Oversalted food. A lot of wasted food for two people. Maybe it was an off night. Was really excited to eat here and left disappointed. Restaurant wasn't busy but everything seemed a beat or two off. Water wasn't refilled. Also felt rushed. In...More

We were warmly greeted as we entered the restaurant and seated immediately. If you are familiar with Ad Hoc, they prepare a menu each day that has preselected choices for each course and then either 1 or 2 ‘additions’. On this evening we chose two...More

I was very nervous about trying this restaurant given the one option for dining; a prix fix menu. The evening of our dinner they were serving veal. I’m not a huge fan of veal, but having only had the veal parmigiana type of fried veal...More

For a group of 10, our bill was $1500. So prepare yourself for a wonderful meal with a high price. Ad Hoc has a fixed four course menu but accommodated my gluten allergy fantastically. They had a delightful selection of unique cocktails. I had the...More

I like this Thomas Keller restaurant much more than French Laundry. It is way less stuffy, and the family style dining makes it feel more intimate and homey.

I would say yes. It's family style. I wouldn't let them run around the restaurant but the occasional squeal won't bother anyone.
