    It's always a pleasure to dine at Adelina's Bistro. The food is always wonderful. The presentation is beautiful and the service is first class. Adelina's is located in our beautiful Trilogy Monarch Dunes community which means we don't have to travel far to enjoy fine dinning. It truly is a gem.

    My burger was over cooked and tasteless. The avocado was not ripe. The fries went cold almost immediately and were not good. The service was slow considering we were the only patrons there. I was very disappointed as I had expected a very good meal. I will not go back.

    We are regular patrons of Adelina's Bistro, and we like to have the Day Boat Scallops Starter as our main entry. With the day boat scallops recently taken off the menu, the chef graciously created a special personalized scallop dish for us the last two times we were at the bistro. Our dinner was delicious... And served with great hospitality from everyone. Thank you, Michael, Sara, Patrick, and all waitstaff. You are amazing

    This restaurant is located in the community at Trilogy of Monarch Dunes. We were celebrating a birthday. Our waiter was Jarod and not only is he extremely pleasant, he is very knowledgeable about the food served at the restaurant. Also, because he knew it was my birthday, he went over to the piano and played Happy Birthday - a nice little touch! My husband had a BBQ chicken pizza which was good and I had the steak which was quite good - especially the sauce. Trilogy members also get a nice discount here but you don't need to be a member to eat here.

    We often go to Adelina's Sunday night suppers. They offer a three course meal for $20. You can go online to see what the Sunday night supper is for the month ahead. Last Sunday we had a delicious Tilapia with lentils and cucumbers. The sauce was light and absolutely wonderful It was gluten free and so was the beef and rice soup. For dessert they had bananas and lemon custard. Since I can't eat gluten they made mine without the pastry on the banana but my husband had it the regular way. The whole dinner was absolutely fabulous.

    Adelina's bistro was last minute choice and it is very convenient and is a place where you feel comfortable dressed very casually to nicely dressed. The service was a little slow at first, but after our waitress finally came to our table it was very good from then on. The food was very good, with the salad exceptional. This Martini was also very good.

  • Adelina's Bistro, Nipomo restaurant
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 7/26/2014
    This may very well be the finest restaurant in Nipomo. We had not visited the area before so there may be other hidden gems. We had a really good experience. It is a little hard to find and MapQuest made an error because a fire road was not recognized as a closed road. Signage for the restaurant was also lacking once one found the complex. It is part of a development called Trilogy or a golf club/country club with the logo Monarch. We had an exceptional experience once we arrived.

    Great find in California- went with some buddies who are doing the aids life cycle ride from SF to LA and we were in desperate need of a lovely restaurant with good food and great ambiance. THIS PLACE WAS GREAT! Located in a country club with very high ceilings, a great fireplace you can sit by for cocktails and amazing wine and food- this place is a gem. I highly recommend.

    I found the restaurant on Google and it had pretty good reviews so (4) of us tried it Saturday night. The dining room is large (w/ high ceilings) and it had a Lodge-like feel to it, which was very nice. The vibe was low-key (it is after all on a golf course) and although the food was unspectacular (meaning it was very straight forward) it was still good. We all had a pleasant evening and will definitely return.

    As you enter the massive front doors that hide the massive high ceilings over the dinning room you already know it'll be good. Very comfortable high back chairs that come in handy to relax your head against. The food was very good. The menu was tastefully simple in size but the food was deceptively very good. From a burger for one, cornish game hen for the other, to a crab and shrimp combo with cheese on a muffin, the food told me I can't make this at home. It's too good. I'll be returning with friends from out of town just to show them this one charm that I don't want them to leave without trying.

    Adelina's is a market/dining venue in a designed community east of the dunes around Nipomo just off Hwy 1. It is rather like dining at your favorite golf club. The much cliched ceasar salad was excellent, the seared duck breast, medium rare with crispy skin was perfect and the filet mignon was very, very tasty, fork tender. The preparations are simple, no fancy sauces, allowing the ingredients to shine. Spicy molten chocolate cake and the peach crisp were a perfect end to a very nice meal.

    We usually go to Adelina's for lunch and have a "personal" size pizza, which are huge. There's a good variety of pizza on the menu.. This time we enjoyed a relaxing dinner. The menu changes often. Portions are large and well-presented. Service is always attentive. We are never rushed from the table and the large padded chairs are super comfortable. We're glad it's fairly close.

    The chef did a great job with an ambitious New Year Menu. Baked oysters which were delicious, a nice salad , Lobster Thermador, which was big enough and rich enough to also be lunch New year's day, and a chocolate desert which would satisfy any sweet tooth! The service was great, although I have to admit we came to the restaurant quite early. A really nice experience.
