    This is a "go to" for my family. We have inadvertently raised our children (10 and 12) to be food snobs. You won't find chicken strips on this menu, but that's not a bad thing. If you have younger children, have them order small plates and teach them to dine like an adult.

    Adelle's is our go-to restaurant for birthdays and anniversaries and again they did not disappoint. The service was friendly and unobtrusive, the food was simple yet stellar. My husband cannot get enough of the pork schnitzel and I had my favorite parmesan chicken. Their menu is moderately sized and very fairly priced for the quality of the dishes. Will go there again and again!

    The food is delicious. The daily specials are really special. The wine list is extensive, and an extra treat is there is no corkage fee on Tuesdays if you byob. Service is knowledgeable and relaxed, and the ambience allows for conversation without straining. One if the best in the suburbs.

    We were looking for a restaurant in the Wheaton area in order to meet some friends half-way from our respective homes. What a pleasant surprise. The menu is wonderful with many tempting choices and demonstrating great creativity. Everything we ordered was delicious. I am a cassoulet fanatic and their version was scrumptious.

    This is a favorite for a monthly date. There are amazing daily specials and the chef prepares a different risotto daily. The dishes are uniquely American and come in a large or small size. We celebrated our 15th anniversary here and we were welcomed with a complimentary toast. We ordered six small plates to share and shared a dessert. It was quite a selection and we did have a full dish to take home! We like to do this because once we see the menu, we want a little bit of everything! This place is worth the price. A great bar with live music playing softly made our night last time. Once we went and there were two Bentleys parked out front. It is the chance to enjoy the best food combinations without traveling to the city or overseas.

    My husband and I are Adelle regulars in part because of the great food which can be rich at times, but is fresh and seasonal. The service is the best and it's consistent. I think we had semi poor service once in about the 50 times we've eaten here, and the manager came over to make sure that he did what he could to make things better. They really make you feel special and the staff are always able to make great recommendations because they are allowed to taste the foods (which I think many places need to put more emphasis on). If your a duck fan, I recommend ordering the duck as it is the best I have ever had.

    My husband and I chose Adelle's based on some very positive reviews and we're glad we did. The menu sounded so good that we were ready to say "okay" to everything on the small plates and appetizers list. We finally had to limit ourselves to 3 small plates a person and that was because we wanted dessert. Almost everything we ordered was outstanding, particularly the pear and fig bruschetta with goat cheese. Dessert was a peach crisp that wasn't overly sweet like most desserts and a lovely cap to the meal. The owner came in and checked on us personally and even sent a complimentary toast of champagne when we mentioned it was our anniversary. Looking forward to our next visit to Adelle's.

    The food was great, from the appetizers, entrees (from the specials list), and finishing with dessert. But the restaurant decor was a bit dated, and the service we received was not the best. Once we placed our drink order, received our wine, and reviewed the menus, it took a LONG time for our server to come back and get our food orders. It appeared to be an issue just with our server, as other tables were not having the same problem, and our service did improve a bit as the night went on. But it is difficult to get good service when the server fails to even glance at our table when walking past to at least give us an opportunity to get their attention.

    My husband and I tried out Adelle's for his birthday dinner after we were not able to make a reservation for our favorite special occasion restaurant. The decor, white table linens, and quiet atmosphere made it a nice evening for us; however, we were not overly impressed with our dinners for what we paid for them. I had the parmesan-crusted chicken, which was both unique and good tasting, but definitely not worth $20. My husband had the bleu-cheese flat iron steak, which he said tasted like an Applebee's steak, also not worth the $26. I would enjoy this restaurant more for wine and appetizers so that we could enjoy the ambiance, but we won't be returning for entrees.

    Lamb Chops, Meatloaf and Iron Skillet steak were all very good. The beet salad was presented well. Flavor was average. Service was very good. Owner stopped by to chat for a few minutes. We sat in the west wing of the restaurant. The air was a little stagnant there compared to the main part of the restaurant. Overall a nice place on the westside of Downtown Wheaton.
