Diner Reviews
  • "Four of us dined on Saturday night. I made a reservation for 7:30pm, but had to wait 15min due to the large volume of people that ate early before the Colts game. We sat down at our table, but didn't see our waiter for 15min after we sat down. He took our order for drinks and guacamole tableside. The lady came right away and made the guacamole (excellent, good presentation and very fresh ingredients), but no drinks for another 10 min!! Finally our drinks came and we ordered our entrees. The entrees came in a reasonable amount of time. The food was good, not great. If they are trying to impress during the Devour Indy promotion, they definitely need to improve on their service. The food could be fresher."

  • "Our reservations were at 7:00pm which they did seat us promptly, but from there it went downhill. It was 10 minutes before we saw our waitress, when we finally got to order our appetizer and drinks she was in an extreme hurry and did not explain anything about the drinks, i ordered a sangria which i received but 2 of the other guests ordered mango margaritas which we still did not receive at the end of the meal at that time we had to find our waitress and tell her not to bother with the drinks. During the course of the night we never did see our waitress until the end of the evening when we were ready for our bill. She never apologized for the drinks or her lack of appearances. We had to ask for our dishes to be cleared."

  • "We make it downtown for dinner several times a year and ADOBO is a MUST stop! Great food--chips/salsa are excellent---and their regular menu is really good! Margarita's from scratch and served at the table is a nice feature! Try the chocolate tamal for dessert! WOW--it is YUMMY!"

  • "Not thrilled with the $95.00 bill for what we got. Food was expensive, not a very large selection on the menu, waiter told us they can not do any substitutions. Just not a place we will return to."

  • "I have been to your restaurant twice and had the same lovely waitress. I believe the receipt said Esperanza. I would go back for that service alone; however, I really like your margaritas with Silver Tequila as well."

  • "After waiting nearly 20 minutes for someone to take our drink/app order, we received excellent drinks. I had the coconut mojito and my friend had the Adobo margarita. Both were delicious, as was the table-side-made guacamole. As for the entrees, they left much to be desired. The carne asada, and the tacos de carne asada were both over-cooked and very dry. Both dishes lacked much flavor, which was surprising after tasting the drinks and guac. In conclusion, this place would be great for happy-hour cocktails and appetizers, but I would skip the dinner part."

  • "We used to love this place. We had dinner here Saturday night for the first time in 3 years (we had moved out of town and back). I was underwhelmed. Where was the fantastic menu? Why, at 6 p.m. when there was virtually no one in the restaurant, were we seated at a terrible table on the second floor? This with reservations. The bar menu was still extensive and attractive, but I thought the servings were overpriced. The service was great, but nothing else stood out about this meal. Not in love with Adobo Grill anymore, and so sad about that."

  • "The gaucamole alone is a reason to eat here. They make it right at your table fresh. They give you an option of mild, medium or hot. Great food, drinks and atmosphere. We will be back."

  • "We had a reservation at the Adobe Grill at 2:30 PM on a Friday. There were only a couple of tables filled with customers at the time. Our service was average. I was somewhat disappointed because I had informed the restaurant that we were celebrating two birthdays, however; the server failed to acknowledge them:("

  • "For our most recent nice shirt date we wanted something that was downtown, nice but not too pricey. Abuelo met all the criteria. We had the Tableside Guacamole which was deliciously amazing! (we ordered it spicy). The Vegetales Tacos which were also delicious - the combination of the vegetables and the goat cheese worked well together. If I were creating this dish at home, I would have added mushrooms. The side order of black beans was bland but edible. For dessert, we ordered the Chocolate Tamal. The presentation of the cake in the corn husk was well executed. The ice cream and cherries served with it were great but they did not offset the bitterness of the cake. It could have used a milk chocolate center or some type of fruit filling."

  • "Ive been here several times and this was the least impressive. Margarita came with salt even though i ordered NO salt. The guacamole was excellent. The Meat dishes were a bit tough and the fish was a really small portion for the price. Id go back for a drink and apps but that's it. "

  • "My wife and I were extremely disappointed with our experience at the Adobo Grill. To start with, our waiter appeared bored and presented an air of allofness. It took forever for him to just take our drink order. The margerita was extremely weak and rather expensive. However, the sangria was excellent; one of the best I ever tasted. With respect tot he food, it was nothing special and extremely overpriced for what you get. One of our meals (pork pibil) was very good, but the tacos and everything else was only average at best. It seems that the Adobo Grill put most of the money, time and effort in the appearance of the restaurant, with little attention to the quality of the food and service."

  • "The guacamole made at your table was wonderful, and available spicy (you can choose-we like it hot and other restaurants don't have it). Also, the best chile relleno in the city since Cafe Sante Fe closed (sob). "

  • "About once a year my wife and I make the trek downtown to get some of the best guacamole and margaritas in town. Food is great, and service is wonderful. I would not endorse as a good family place but a great restaurant for a date night or group of friends."

  • "We made reservations for 5 to celebrate 3 birthdays. We were seated in a private alcove. It was fantastic! Our friends from out of town loved it!"

  • "We have eaten here many times and tried many menu items. The food is fairly priced and excellent. The waitstaff is well organized and efficient. The guacamole is the best in town and delicious. Plus it is close to great entertainment so is handy for pre- and post-show dining."

  • "We decided at the last minute to go out for Cinco de Mayo. Was pleasantly surprised that we could get into Adobo. They had live music that night and a full crowd. Some nice (albeit pricey) specials that included scallops in a huitlacoche sauce. Very tasty and not a commonly found dish in Indianapolis. All-in-all, a great dinner."

  • "We went to Adobo Grill for Cinco de Mayo. We had a reservation for 6. We were put in a room upstairs that could not see any of the activities (mariachi band). It took 45 minutes just to get our drinks. The food was mediocre at best and the service was abysmal. Not worth the time or money. "

  • "We were in a small alcove which was perfect for our large group. Our waiter was super attentive and helpful with the menu. The guacamole was to die for! The food was hot and very authentic and loved by all. The margaritas were delicious and all made naturally with no artificial mixes. All in all I would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely return. "

  • "The food was very good. My wife is a vegetarian and she had the roasted butternut squash enchilada, and she loved it! We also had the pumpkin crepe with plantains, which was delicious. The prices were reasonable, and the service and ambiance were good as well. A great find in downtown Indy."

  • "I visited this restaurant with a group of friends before the pacers playoff game. Our food was delicious and the atmosphere was quiet against the outside busy streets. I have gluten and corn allergies. This is a challenge for most Mexican style restauranta. The waiter here was understanding and even offered alternatives to wheat or corn chips. I was amazed at the service and appreciated the freedom to eat without worry. "

  • "Adobo Grill better increase the quality of their food and drink offerings while lowering their pricing or they will soon be out of business. $10.00 margaritas that are about 3 ounces will not bring Customers back too soon. Four of us went and ordered 3 entrees, 2 appetizers, and a couple rounds of drinks (2 beers, 2 wines, 5 margaritas) and our bill was $172.00 before tip. That is a bit pricey in any market, especially Indy. We likely won't be back."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "South of the border cuisine and a flair for satisfying the big city experience. Many food items you just will not find anywhere else. Preparation at the table of salsa and guacamole is quite different and tasty. If you are looking for the best Tequila selection found east of the Mississippi, this place is a must destination."

  • "This was our second visit to the restaurant. Service was attentive and pleasant. We had a good view of a large screen TV (it being March Madness season, this was a criterion--there are several TVs and almost every table has a view). We ordered guacamole and two appetizers, which was plenty for the two of us for dinner, with drinks. The food was good, and definitely not "ordinary" Mexican-American items. But the real highlight was the table-made guacamole, which was heavenly. I'm sure we'll return."
