Excellent experience!Fantastic food and excellent service! We will definitely go back. Loved the variety of interesting dishes, and our server was friendly and very knowledgeable.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful, as alwaysTook a childhood neighbor and his wife to dinner at Adelle's, since I have never heard negative comments and only praise from those I have introduced to this wonderful restaurant. On an ordinarily quiet night, it was well attended. Service was very pleasant and left us plenty of time to chat before taking our orders. I would like to see more attention to the recommended "business casual" dress. Skip the jeans, folks. I don't know if this restaurant is intended to be "kid friendly" but would prefer that families with young children (noisy ones at that) be seated together, away from elderly, like ourselves, with sensitive ears. The food was wonderful, the wine we chose was outstanding. Overall, and outstanding experience.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasent relaxed atmosphere.Pleasent relaxed atmosphere. Dress ranges from suits to t-shirts. Wine is good. Menu including daily specials can range from interesting to average.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a great experience atI had a great experience at Adelle's on Saturday night. My husband, baby, and dad were with me, and we ate outside--it was gorgeous weather and we didn't feel self-conscious having an 8 month old baby with us like we probably would have had we been inside the restaurant. I had the risotto and watermelon salad, my dad had the lobster bisque and peppered steak, and my husband had the whitefish. We split the strawberry rhubarb cobbler and coconut rice pudding for dessert. All the food was excellent. We also got a bottle of cabernet sauvignon that was good. Our server was excellent. Great time was had by all, and I recommend the restaurant. We may go back for another special occasion.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!I had read the reviews for Adele's (all of which were great) so I had high expectations. Even with the high expectations I left impressed. The food was fantastic. The service was perfect and attentive. We had a great bottle of wine. What more can you ask for??6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNever a bad mealAlways a treat. Shared risotto special as appetizer, delicious, as always. Risottos change daily, & not every restaurant gets risotto right. Adelles' never misses. Great watermelon & watercress salad, so refreshing & light. Waiter, John, was excellent. So enthusiastic about his menu & made everything sound wonderful, hard to choose, but he helped steer us with that as well. The Copper River salmon was special - only available a very short period of time each year, so we had to try it. Outstanding! So flavorful but not "fishy," rich, deep color. Really nice. Even the bread at Adelle's is noteworthy. No quicker way to lower my opinion of a nice restaurant than mediocre bread. We go regularly & never had anything but thoroughly enjoyable meal6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Food!Can't wait to go back and try other entrees and desserts! Best meal we've had in Wheaton!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was excellent in every way.The wait staff were very attentive and our water glasses were always full.
The menu was so interesting and our entres` were delicious.
We were celebrating two birthdays in our group of 6 and so appreciated the desserts that were presented "on the house."6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTook my girlfriend here forTook my girlfriend here for her birthday. Had the very seasonal Copper River Salmon that tasted like it was caught moments ago in Alaska and served with minimal seasonings allowing the natural flavors to melt in our mouths. It was so good I wish I ciuld have had another for dessert. Our server was very pleasant and accomodating. As a previous reviewer noted, we didn't order any dessert, but after bein g questioned which dessert we would have ordered, they brought us the black cow compliments of the house. Will definitelybe goi g back now that we've experienced Adelle's.
For anyone that's questioning the location; they are no longer on College Ave. Their new location is on Liberty St south of the tracks.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMamazing!!The reviews of Adelle's are so correct! This place is soooo good. The food was amazing. Our server's name was john. He was great and timely. He made the experience exceptional.
If I lived in the area this would definitely be a staple in my weekly dinning routine. I live in DC and typically find that most restaurants and servers do not compare to the high level and quality of service John gave us. The food was excellent. Adelle's offers many choices that are well seasoned. The meats are deliciously tender and come with mouth watering and savory side dishes.
I recommend this place to anyone who wants a calm atmosphere, a great meal....and of course John! :-)6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently SuperbOur family went there after our sons graduation. We had a special table for seven and Miguel our server was simply the best.
Everything was fresh and wonderful. The specials are always fun to experience. Skirt steak, Amberjack and the Soft Shell Crab was wonderful.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMYum! An eclectic menu withYum! An eclectic menu with delicious pairings. Something for everyone - even the picky eaters. I don't need more than 50 characters to review it.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a find!We were looking for something different in the Western Suburbs. Open Table reviews and photos of the website/menu led us to Adelle's, where the ambiance was upbeat and not as "big box" as many surburban restaurants; the waiter was enthusiastic, attentive and seasoned; and the food was first rate. There were so many appealing options on the main menu and then the watier delivered an extensive list of specials. Choosing was difficult - so we'll go again and again to try some of the other menu items.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMPopular restaurantWe visited on a Thursday night for the first time. The place was over 3/4 full! Menu is very diverse. We both ordered Amberjack off the "specials" menu. Big mistake! It was horrific tasting and we both sent it back (for the record, we have never done this at any of the hundreds of restaurants we've eaten at). We both reordered: Parmesan chicken and pot roast. Those were amazingly good and delicious! Loved the presentations, too. Nothing understated there! So, we recommend this restaurant, but stay away from the fish entrees.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't pass this restaurantDon't pass this restaurant up ----- Adelle's is simply OUTSTANDING. Great specials each night followed by great desserts.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond Time Just as GoodMy wife and I first tried Adelle's a couple months ago and liked it so much that my wife wanted to return for her birthday. We sat outside on the spacious patio and enjoyed the great evening. We opted to share a salad and get a couple other small plates to share. The portions and quality of the dishes were fantastic and the service was just as good. I had mentioned on my Open Table reservation that we were celebrating my wife's birthday, but no one mentioned anything about it until we decided to pass on dessert. It was then that our server brought out a dessert (strawberry shortcake) with a birthday candle in it! I wasn't expecting anything to come of my reservation note, but the gesture was a great ending to an already-great meal.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMNice but better the first time.We went to Adelle's on Thursday for the featured "live Jazz". We ate outside, had great service but the food was not as exeptional as our first visit. The fish was over cooked and dry. Salads were great. We moved into the bar to listen to the music. We found a 2 piece group. While the guitarist played the sax player was texting. Pretty lame.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers day menu was way overMothers day menu was way over priced and the prices weren't listed anywhere till we got our bill. We felt cheated.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day DinnerAdele's was a great place great to celebrate Mother's Day. The idea of the buffet with many entrees to choose from with waitress service was a smart way to handle this day. I enjoyed all the salads to choose from and the desert selections was outstanding.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA surprising suburban find...Went to Adelle's for the first time Saturday night and we had a great time. The service was definitely five stars...our server was knowledgeable, thoughtful and provided great suggestions. The dinner was delicious and the portions were generous. The bill came to about $130 with tip, so be prepared to spend a little money, but it's worth it.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMixed ReviewWe were late for our reserved time (due to a delayed flight) and the staff was very understanding. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. Since I eat a semi-vegetarian diet (including fish), the options were limited. My husband chose the tortilla-crusted tilapia which was very flavorful, while I chose the "salmon special". My dish was "fine", but lacked spice or "wow factor". Our rating criteria is, "Would we crave the food and want to go back?" My husband gave a resounding "yes", I was a bit more reserved as I wasn't "wowed" at that price-point, although I would give it a second chance (and order the tilapia)!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic MenuWe went there for Mother's Day on the Saturday evening prior, and we all enjoyed the food very much. There were at least 8 main courses I wanted to try. The food was perfectly prepared and delicious. There is no kids menu, but they do have a parmesan chicken breast entree with cheddar mashed potatoes that both of my kids enjoyed. We've been there two times now. I will definitely go back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Great DinnerGreat Menu. Great Food. Informed and helpful service. Great Experience5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTop NotchExcellent food & service as always.

Love that they use local, organic food (that's what I was told by a friend). Loved the interesting dishes.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAdelle's continues to maintainAdelle's continues to maintain its food quality and creativity. We had to wait awhile for a reserved table, but the dinner was excellent and we will always be back again!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful risotto!
Really hard decision on main course as there were many great items to chose from.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellence in Dining @ Adelle'sFirst impression, loved the architecture and subtle railroad references, being located next to the tracks. Very comfortable, relaxed yet refined atmosphere. Service was excellent and personable. Great wine offerings by the glass. All the food, from bread and butter, to salads, entrees and desserts, were wonderfully prepared and satisfying. We were celebrating my 18 year old son's birthday, and they brough him their fabulous chocolate mousse with raspberry sauce. I am first and foremost a foodie, while my husband's top reason to return to a restaurant would be ambiance, and we both loved Adelle's and look forward to returning.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMNever a question as to theNever a question as to the good quality of the meal.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AM4 Star Dining In WheatonCelebrating our third wedding anniversary was very special due to the lovely setting (quiet with a little music in the background, beautiful venue and tables placed where can 't hear others), fabulous good and attentive service. We will be back again, especially for anniversaries. The patio looks lovely, but unfortunately it was too cold. Bon Appetit!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food. Menu changesgreat food. Menu changes regularly. Risotto is to die for4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't wait to return.It was our first time there and I was celebrating my birthday so I trusted that all the reviews I had read would be honest ones. Everyone was warm and inviting and our server was excellent. The food was absolutely delicious. Very fresh and tasty. There wasn't one complaint from any of us. The four of us could talk easily and hear each other. There was music but at an enjoyable level. I had the unbelievable root beer float for dessert (it wad my birthday after all) and they even brought it with a candle. The bill was fair for what we ate and drank. The four of us agreed that we would definitely return.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways greatAdelle's is a neighborhood favorite and a very nice experience. But it just occurred to me that what makes Adelle's outstanding is the reliability. Service, food, ambiance always there. Have been regular customers since the beginning and have never had a bad experience. I think that counts for a lot. There are a lot of nice restaurants to choose from. Nice to be sure you're going to have a good experience.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI'd been to Adelle's whenI'd been to Adelle's when it was in it's original location and this was my first time at their new location. I was highly satisfied with the new location, service and food.

Looking forward to going back in warmer weather to sit outside.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best Wheaton can offerAnother exceptional dining experience at Adelle's. Every course was delicious, from soup to desserts. Chef John's risotto is the best I've ever tasted, each time I visit it's a different flavor combination. I had the Duck entrée, again, and was as good as I remembered. My friend had the filet, it was cooked to perfection and one of the best he ever had. The service was attentive and friendly, her name was Miley, (sp?) very friendly lady. I was there on Friday the 5th to listen to live music in the large bar/lounge area and to have some apps and wine. The placed was full and hopping! First time just to sit at the bar and from the regulars told me, Adelle's has become a hotspot for good music, martinis and wine lovers. I'll be back!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at this restaurant..ExceFirst time at this restaurant..Excellent food. Had the Scallops and tipalia. Both entres were great.

Prices were a nice surprise for a restaurant of this high caliber3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMwe will be back!The area where the restaurant is is not usual for downtown Wheaton, but don't let this fool you! The food and service were excellent. We had a group of 6 and were given a nice private table and really enjoyed our dinner. We had some dietary requirements and they made sure everything was ok and done to our specifications. Very accommodating and nice about it. The wine list is large and nice selection of wines and prices. When we left the bar area was filled with people enjoying live music. We will be back!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe new location is amazing!The new location is amazing! The food is always fabulous! Adelles is a treasure!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWill definitely return. TheWill definitely return. The menu was varied, but not too large. Liked the small plate options.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe left a bit hungryWe came for the fish fry. The food was excellent as was the service, but the portions for the price were very small. The size of the fresh cod was moderate which is understandable since it is very costly to serve fresh fish. Half the plate was covered with crispy waffled potato chips that were a bit greasy; then there was a small dollop of delicious coleslaw--that was it for $18. If the meal had included a vegetable side or a cup of soup, we would have been more satisfied.
The host graciously adjusted our bill after we voiced our concern. We will be back because we love Adele's3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our evening veryWe enjoyed our evening very much - the food was fabulous and our waiter was excellent.

The service could not get better, the food is to die for. I was able to enjoy more being just with my husband than with a large group.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThey make you feel like youThey make you feel like you are so special-they wrote the book on what matters to their guests.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThey have a nice selectionThey have a nice selection of beers on draft. The service was very good and the food was excellent. My wife had the risotto, which was creamy and delicious. I had pork schnitzel with spaetzel and red cabbage. The schnitzel was one of the best I have ever had - not too thin and it was moist. Enjoyed a cherry cobbler for desert. All in all a very relaxing and enjoyable evening. Although it is not cheap, I highly recommend this place.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food!!excellent food, good service, and great wine list. i will be back for sure3/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
