Ad Hoc or La Toque?

Finalizing our Napa plans and I'm trying to decide between Ad Hoc and La Toque. One of key factors for leaning towards La Toque is it's within walking distance of our hotel.

We already have plans at other Napa restaurants, Grace's Table, Oneteri and Ubuntu.

    The difference between Ad Hoc and La Toque are apples and orange.

    Ad Hoc is unpretentious, family-style, wholesome well-prepared comfort food.

    La Toque is pointedly precious, twee, tasting menu. I have had both great meals and mediocre meals at La Toque but haven't eaten there since he moved out of Rutherford.

      Well said, CarrieWas218! Personally, I would choose Ad Hoc any day, since twee is not my thing (but I have enjoyed the theater, if not the food particularly, at La Toque). And all of your other places are within walking distance so why not drive one night...... But La Toque would be quite different than the other restaurants you have chosen.
