    Went there for my wife's birthday. It was our first time and we were very pleased with the service and food. Nice size restaurant with a nice atmosphere. Servers were friendly (very important) and the food from the appetizers to the main course was excellent. Definitely worth going back!!!

    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.

    Very good food - a varied wine list and outstanding service. Our waiter and his help were amazingly attentive even with a busy Saturday night crowd. The fabulous service and the tempura green beans are enough to make me want to return. But, there is a lot more to return for.

    Adele's is a great find! Food is beautifully presented, and the flavors are spectacular!! The use of spices and seasonings brings interest to the food that pleases the palate and delights the heart. The ordinary becomes extraordinary and exceptional at Adele's. We will definitely go there again.

    We were greatly pleased with our evening at Adele's. Very good service and our waiter gave us excellent advice on menu items. We dined early in the evening, so the restaurant was quiet and conversation friendly. Prices are moderate and the food was excellent. You must try Adelle' at least once and you won't be dissapointed

    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.

    All dishes we tried were tasty, fresh and well-executed. A Tilapia entree which choice was made simple by a genuine recommendation from our waitress--I came thinking seafood--was perfection. The flesh was fresh, flavorful and meaty; the pea puree adding color and creamy texture; and ultra fresh baby carrots adding more color, flavor and perfect crunchy texture. As said, our waitress made our choices easy with professionally made recommendations, but most of the "waiting" was done by a bussing crew which although mostly good was a bit gruff and lacked timing considering the high level of the rest of the experience.

    When we go to Adelle's we like to get most of the small plates because there is so much amazing food. The risotto is always top of the list. Carbonara risotto was beyond words delicious. A favorite of mine is also the beet salad and the thai lobster rolls. We dont go out to eat often but when we go to Adelle's we are never disappointed.

    We celebrated our anniversary at Adelle's on Saturday and was amazed at the wonderful food. Everything was prepared to perfection. Field salad was delicious. Entrees of Swordfish and Whitefish were outstanding. We topped off the meal by sharing a chocolate mousse (not usually my fav) with fresh raspberry sauce and cream. It was fantastic! Service was somewhat slow but the food proved worth the wait.

    Once again a great meal. The Risotto is to die for. This time it was a crayfish mixed with other goodies to make an excellent treat. Great way to start the meal. The swordfish and White fish entrees where excellent. The fish did not have that "fishy" taste, especially significant for the swordfish. the salted caramel gelatto was a great finishing touch. The service was fine. No rush to get us out and enough time between cocktails, appetizer, entrees and dessert to enjoy conversation, yet the time was not so long as to wonder whether we were forgotten. It was nicely paced. This is our favorite restaurant. the menu changes are mostly in the specials. The Chef is creative with many succulent choices. You will not be disappointed.

    We have always enjoyed dining at Adelle's. This visit our server was a disappointment. He was slow to respond and disappeared for awhile several times. We did notice that several other servers were more attentive than our own. The food was good, as always. We have had many great meals, and will go back again hoping this was a singular experience in a long string of satisfying visits.

    This was my first visit to the new location. I couldn't have been any happier when I left. Our waiter told us the specials almost with a gleam in his eye. He really knew the menu and the wine recommendation couldn't have been any better. Fresh bruschetta and bacon wrapped scallops w/ almonds started us off. Followed by one of the best steaks I have ever eaten, it literally melted in my mouth. The dessert menu was filled with in season offerings and a Chocolate Mousse w/ raspberries and fresh whipped cream to die for. Such a progressive menu. Imagine fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere with Pearl Jam playing quietly above you. Kudos to the entire staff, what a grand experience.
