Diner Reviews
  • "This was my second time to Adelle's and my husband's first. He is not easily impressed - and this was a great night! From the crab cake starter to the amazing desserts, we enjoyed everything we ate. I had the salmon and he had the flat iron steak with blue cheese. Seriously terrific food and the service was not only good, but friendly and welcoming. We started in the bar, had dinner in the dining room and then headed back to the bar for dessert and a nightcap. We'll definitely be back again!"

  • "This was our first visit to Adelle's. The food was amazing and the service was professional. The honeydew melon soup was delicious, simple, and perfect for a summer evening whether as a starter or as a dessert. The watermelon salad was perfect, very lightly dressed. The corn risotto with scallop was creamy and tasty. The tuna entree was cooked perfectly. The light wasabe sauce balanced the flavors. Tomato salad was enough to feed two, easily. The wines paired beautifully with our food choices. The bread was reminiscent of Toscana Bakery in Chicago. Key lime pie was smooth, with a nice tang. The blueberry crisp must be tried! Coffee was served in warmed cups! Great attention to details."

  • "Have been to "Adelle's" several times but this time enjoyed the beautiful cozy patio for the first time. We just loved the ambiance. Very much enjoyed the small plates of Fish Tacos and Tuna Tartar but were a bit disappointed in the main course dishes as well as their presentation - the meatloaf was somewhat dry and the Special entrée of Skate was overpowered by the cornmeal crust; however the accompanying pea pod-leek sauté was most delicious. We decided from now on to just have several small plates - a most wonderful selection to be had. We definitely will be back - for more outdoor dining but also looking forward to fall and winter for eating in the pretty indoor rooms. The wait staff was very gracious! Overall a wonderful experience!"

  • "First time to Adelle's at this location, which is convenient on west edge of downtown Wheaton. Food is fine, but a bit overpriced -- not a reason you shouldn't try it. Ordering and sharing small plates is a good way to appreciate the kitchen on a single visit. Service was efficient, though not especially warm. We sat inside, which had plenty of available tables on a Thurs evening. Outside was packed. Noise from next door train tracks not distracting inside; not sure whether that's true outside."

  • "Once again another great meal at Adelle's. While I enjoy many dishes, the risotto of the day is usually my favorite. Service is top notch."

  • "We were delighted with the small plate options on the menu. What a wonderful way to try several menu items and share. Outside seating is a nicely decorated private space even though close to the street. The service was outstanding and server was very helpful and spot on with his recommendations. Definite return spot for lunch or dinner."

  • "I have dined at Addelles before, when they were in the old location and was always pleased with the food and service. However, my last visit (Friday night) was a huge let down. We arrived early and had drinks in the bar. The live music was very enjoyable. We were seated at the reserved time 7:30. We did not receive our main course until 8:50. We asked several times what the hold up was and the server said that they had overseated. However, there were not that many people in the dining room and no one seemed to have their food. The insulting thing was that they were not even very apologetic and did not offer free dessert or anything of the sort. Also, I wanted to order the meatloaf and I was told that it was cooling and not available."

  • "This was a night out for my husband and I to celebrate our anniversary. Our table outdoors was great as was the menu! So many great choices. We had three small plates and then shared an entree which was plated individually for us! The risotto was outstanding. The sangria was also very good. It was a busy Friday but staff was attentive and it was not overly loud. When I made our reservation I mentioned it was our anniversary and so after dinner our server gave us each a glass of bubbly. Very nice touch! Also a great dessert menu and we shared again and were satisfied! Great night!!"

  • "It was a beautiful evening for our girls night out. We sat outside and didn't regret it. It didn't feel like we were 3 steps from the street. Our group is known for closing a place down and the server we had was all for that. He didn't rush us, checked in at the perfect moments, and was generously tipped for his great service. We recommend the fish tacos; those were our favorite. Also the sliders and tempura green beans."

  • "Another wonderful experience at Adelle's. Dining outside on a wonderful warm evening we brought our own wine (Tuesday, free corkage) and enjoyed several dishes - all of which were outstanding. Can honestly say I have never had anything here that wasn't excellent. This night the fish tacos, risotto (of course), tilapia, assorted cheeses and fruits were all favorites. Always plenty to share with the small plates and a great way to experience a wider variety of dishes. Great service and staff is just a bonus."

  • "We normally love Adelle's but we're slightly disappointed this time. The special of cold avocado soup had very little taste. The meatloaf was dry and flavorless. The special pork chop dinner was fatty and not very good flavor, though the red cabbage and polenta that came with it were very good. Service was a little slow. However, every other time we've come was great. It must have just been an off night. We will be back."

  • "Every time we go to Adelles it is a great time. We always have excellent food and service. Extensive wine/beer menu. We were able to sit on the patio this time and it was great!"

  • "We expected more from the food. Presentation was great, I ordered duck, the taste was not there, and the cherry flavor I didn't experience. Restaurant and service was what I expected, but food highly overrated. My husband ordered the meatloaf dinner and it was ok, for the price we expected to experience something better than average. Very disappointed in the food. If you go there I would suggest ordering from the specials only."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Excellent food!! My husband had the skirt steak, and I chose one of their evening specials - grilled monchong (Hawaiian fish), and both were delicious. Very extensive wine list (longer than the menu). We went to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Very very nice. Would highly recommend."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "If you know what to expect when you order a familiar dish, you will not be disappointed. The surprise comes when you taste your food, get what you expected - and then - there's a little something extra, an additional elusive taste. Chef John Anderson seems to always go one step further to add an additional taste to each dish. The something extra always blends with the expected taste and is generally a bit subtle, but leaves you asking, "There's a little something extra here, and I'm not quite sure what it is.""

  • "I stopped visiting Adelle's because the service was very lacking. Especially with the host stand. It was a bother when I arrived in the past and not very welcoming. This visit was much improved and the service was much better. The food is great, which is why I gave it another chance. I'm glad to see they saw the error of their ways and worked on customer service skills and service in general. A smile is an easy thing to give a customer when they walk in..."

  • "The food at Adelle's was wonderful. We had the lobster spring rolls and the andouille sausage risotto as appetizers. The spring rolls were so good and I will definitely come back for the risotto. The skate wing from the specials menu was light and delicious and the mango salsa was a perfect compliment. The steak with blue cheese was tender and melted in the mouth."

  • "We have been to Adelle's countless time and we are always impressed from the food, ambiance and the staff. This time we went for a long overdue date night. We started with the bruschetta, pear salad and carrot ginger soup. I would recommend all of them. For our main course we had the scallops and the beef short ribs. Again, delicious! We went Saturday and now Monday I am still licking my lips thinking about it!"

  • "My meal was good; my friend's meal was sub-par. Service was terrible. Our waiter was very arrogant, and even though there were hardly any other customers (weekday early evening), we had to keep trying to get his attention, e.g., to place our meal order, to place a dessert order, water refills, etc. He brought us our bill and never asked us if we would like coffee (which we did). My dinner was fine, but my friend's meal was a very poor value for the cost. I will not recommend this restaurant to any of my friends, for any occasion. "

  • "This was my first time I was at Adelle's. Starters were Portobello Fries with a Truffle Aoli, Duck Gnocci & Risotto of the day. All were fantastic! not one morsel was left. The Chef is know for his Risotto and i can see why. Main courses we had the Andouille Crusted Scallops, Duck that came with high recommendations and the Salmon. The Salmon was one of the best I ever tasted, melting in your mouth. The Scallops had a sweet and heat feel that was fantastic and finally the Duck was moist and succulent. The Wine List had options in all price ranges and some great finds as well. Had to have desert, which consistent of a bread pudding of the day that was the icing on the cake. A Fantastic meal start to finish with great service and atmosphere!!"
