Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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.""

  • "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."

  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "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!!"

  • "We invited three couples to have dinner at Adelle's for a total of 8. The restaurant was very busy on a Saturday night but our table was available at the appointed times and the table was in a quiet corner. The waiter, Nick, was fun but efficient....the food was the very best part of the experience. Great night and I would encourage anyone around Dupage county to give this place a shot. Awesome."

  • "Honor our special requests with the reservation and the table was perfect. Loved the ambience, service staff (all of them, with our Waiter, John, the best), and of course the food. Everything was served hot and the plates were appetizing. Drinks were good with no skimping on the scotch! Choices were wonderful and we loved t,he fact that they graciously spilt our salad choice. A wonderful experience that we plan to repeat soon again. A real keeper!"

  • "I took my husband here to celebrate his birthday. We were originally going to go in March, but had to delay. The restaurant remembered us and remembered that we were supposed to have celebrated his birthday. The service was impeccable and the food fantastic. This was our first time dining here, but will not be our last. It was a wonderful evening."

  • "The location has changed, but still backs up to metra tracks. The last we were here was in the old location (about 2 yrs) & I distinctly remember a great experience: food, drink, service, & ambience. This time again 5 stars for all categories except food. I had an unremarkable salmon dish preceded by something alleged to be a Caesar salad. However, the peach & ice cream dessert was a good finish. I had the house cab... very drinkable. I recommend the Stoli martinis. Take away: Enjoyable but menu could be improved (e.g., add some veal or lamb chops)."

  • "We went here for Easter brunch and had a great experience. The buffet was filled with all types of delectable goodies that were fresh and delicious. Also the entree selection was nice and I for one thoroughly enjoyed the Pork chop with corn pudding. My guests also enjoyed their entrees. This is definitely a place I will visit again. ."

  • "We had a great brunch! The restaurant was attractive and conversation friendly. The brunch part was appetizers and desserts. Lots of fruit, grilled veggies salami and cheeses, a spinach salad and great soup...as well as some hearty breads, the pretzels rolls our favorite. For the main course, there was a great selection from French toast and eggs Benedict to a 10 oz pork chop. We enjoyed our choices. The desserts were very tasty but only finger foods..no chessecake, cake or pie but all were excellent! We have been to many brunches where it was definitely quantity over quality. That was not the case here. Quality was #1."
