“Great Fried chicken”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

ordered lunch ahead of our visit. ordered half fried chicken and half ribs. the fried chicken was soooo good!! the ribs were mehhh....

if you cannot snag reservations to ad hoc, definitely visit addendum which is a picnic area behind ad hoc and get their famous fried chicken!

box lunches are about $15 each, which sounds expensive, but is really cheap for the napa area.

“Great Fried Chicken”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

Love the Fried Chicken. It's a bit on the pricey side, but worth it. The BBQ is good, not the best I've ever had but still worth it.

“Skip”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

Thomas Keller is probably my favorite chef, so naturally I was excited to eat at Ad Hoc while visiting Yountville.

I loved the scene and the idea...(fried Chicken from one of the world's most premiere chefs)...but was very disappointed at the food.

I actually didn't think the chicken, nor any of the sides were any good at all.

Its a tourist attraction for what it represents. I would never eat there again, but its probably worth new visitors checking it out for what it is. Otherwise, skip and eat at his other restaurants, which are MUCH better and MUCH more memorable.

“Perfect for a picnic”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

We called ahead to order the friend chicken and ribs. It was expensive but very good fried chicken. I really enjoyed the potato salad.

“Eat the Chicken Hot”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Located behind Ad Hoc in a small building surrounded by picnic tables under redwood trees. Stand in line, place your order through a small window and find a table. Food arrives quickly, hot and ready to eat. Sides include small amount of potato salad and cold slaw. Nothing special or complex. Fried chicken, pulled pork and ribs are very good, but not as good as we remember eating inside the main restaurant several years ago.
Our visit a few weeks ago, we ordered the chicken to go, eating it cold several hours later. Not a good decision. It tastes much better right out of the cooker.
