Weve been to Ad hoc at least a dozen times and it never disappoints. Excellent food, such good value. Kids dont even need separate meals, they are too happy to eat our family style meals.

Ad Hoc is the family dining part of Thomas Keller’s ‘something for everyone’ philosophy, made possible by having four restaurants (dessert from the bakery could be considered a primary food group too, lol) within walking distance of the other. Won’t try to explain differences between...More

I'm sure some people will read the title of this review and think I am nuts - but that is not the case. While the French Laundry was incredible (service, food, all of it), Ad Hoc has REAL food. We went for Sunday dinner and...More

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.
