I usually eat here with other busy women and the restaurant provides us with a good place to catch up as "Ladies who Lunch".

We had a reservation for four
We had a reservation for four but needed a table for six that was quickly arranged in a quiet location. Our server was friendly and capable. The paper tablecloths leave something to be desired.

Been to Adriatic Grill twice now ... once for lunch & most recently for dinner. They haven't disappointed yet! The food is fantastic, the service was friendly & professional. There's an incredible wine list and the food is a fresh take on Italian. Much better than the "big box" Italian restaurant choices out there.

Pleasent as always.
My wife's steelhead was super. I had the pappardelle which was good but I found the sauce much to heavy for my taste. The flowers I had ordered where at our table much to the delight of my wife.

Mothers day dinner
We went a day early for Mothers Day because we had other plans for the next day. The food (as always) was outstanding. My husbands steak was as rare as he had requested it and my meal, the seafood speggattini (sp) was full of huge scallops, tiny clams and tasty shrimp. Amazing. Our service was great as well. Never have been disappointed with a meal here.

Mother's Day for three
We made the mistake of choosing "casual dining", which put us down with the large groups and kids...UGH! This increased the noise level tremendously, but that was my error. The service was wonderful. Sean was a great guy, and was as attentive as he could be on a busy holiday. He was getting frustrated due to lack of bread for the table and some items not available from the menu. The food was wonderful. Their antipasto appetizer has always been a Must Have, but it was alot skimpier than in past visits. The crabcakes were itty bitty and the escargot were fantastic! You must save room for dessert and indulge in the Italian Chocolate plate...OMG I am still talking and dreaming about the cherries!

Had a great time at Adriatic Grill. Had a large group for Mother's Day dinner. The restaurant was very busy, but we were able to get our food in a reasonable amount of time. The food was delicious. Will definitely go back there

I have been here multiple times and try to order something new every time, except the calamari. I have to order that all the time! I have never gotten a bad or even remotely mediocre meal when I come here. The staff is always very attentive, the atmosphere is relaxing and comfortable and the food is to die for!

Great food and service. It is one of the best places in town to go for dinner or to have drinks.

Best food in Tacoma
I love the food here. It is my very favorite restaurant in Tacoma by far. My husband and I always get the crab cakes for an appetizer. Best I have ever had. My favorite meal is the Parmesan chicken. Noodles are amazing!
5/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
It's just fine
Decent place. A little pricey for what it is, although the food is good and our waiter was great I think they try to be a little fancier than they actually are.

10th anniversary=$100 meal Why Not?
My wife really appreciates fine dining in a way that I have yet to accept for myself. We drove up from Olympia for the occasion of our 10th anniversary. We made a reservation, and when it seemed we would be late due to traffic, called to let them know. They had a table for us within a few minutes of our arrival. Our drinks and food arrived before our server could bring us water & bread, but everything was superb. The wife had the Special: Seared Hawaiian Ahi Tuna w/Pasta Puttanesca ($32), and I had the Dungeness Crab with Caramelized Onion pizza. Wife had 3 drinks: champagne, fancy red wine & fancy cocktail (Bellini). I had a bottle of gluten-free beer. We split a slice of the delicious chocolate rum cake. We were both very satisfied.

2nd time's a charm!
We went to Adriatic Grill the first time because we had an online coupon. We had such a great meal that we decided to return several weeks later for our son's graduation dinner. Now we can say that the food is consistently delicious!
First time was a romantic dinner for two, 2nd time was a big family dinner with kids, both times the food and service were great.

A place you'll want to come back to
Adriatic Grill is one of those places where you can't go wrong with anything from their expansive menu. For lunch today, we had the salad sampler, field greens salad, mushroom soup, and roasted garlic flatbread. All were delicious.
7/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is always fresh and delicious. I will definitely go back.
7/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
My favorite restaurant
I always have to have the bread baked with the cambazola cheese and the pear and roasted romaine salad to start with. My mouth waters thinking about it. I had the pesto clams also and they were very tasty. This is my favorite restaurant!

The food we have had at Adriatic Grill never disappoints, the Italian Sliders are delicious, they cook their fish beautifully, my husband loves the lasagna and all pasta dishes have delighted. Our server, Buddy, was attentive and thorough.

Not your Mama's Italian Food
Our Financial Advisor selected the Adriatic Grill for a celebration luncheon. My husband and I had never eaten there before but he and my husband are both of Italian heritage. Their preferences are fresh and local. I ordered the Eggplant Salad and one Canneloni off the lunch menu. Our Financial Advisor had the salmon entree and my husband ordered a pasta with seafood. I loved the warm eggplant and the romaine set off the flavor. My canneloni was seasoned to perfection and more than ample . Both men enjoyed their perfectly prepared selections . The restaurant was busy . Our server was busy but attentive. I found the food delicious, the service good, and the prices fit our "special occasion" budget.

Hasn't disappointed yet!
I've been to this place 3-4 times for lunch and once for dinner. Good, solid, consistent, well-prepared food for a good price. Service is great. The outdoor area is nothing great--shopping mall parking lot view, not much ambiance. The inside is very nice though.

Great Place, great food, Attentive
There were seven of us and we were there first with two younger kids. They noticed that the rest of our party was late so they brought the boys some pizza dough to play with to keep them entertained till everyone showed up. They Steelhead was outstanding but took a little longer than expected, But well worth the wait. My youngest ordered Mac and Cheese and I was happy to see that it didn't come out of a box

I took my husband here for his birthday and he was way MORE than satisfied!! Service was great, food was amazing and the prices were really fair for what we got! We will look forward to bringing his family (from Boston) here during the holidays.

The Adriatic Grill has been a special place for us for several years. We enjoy this for ourselves and try to return often. For this occasion we were introducing friends to the wonderful menu and service. The staff provided the high quality service and menu offerings we had expected and, delightfully, we introduced new fans to the experience.

Another Birthday Celebration
We choose to go to Adriatic Grill for all our special occasions
This was a birthday for a dear friend and the food was excellent as always and the service fantastic. They don't try to hurry you out like some restaurants do. They even gave my friend something special which made her smile!! I love this place.

Fresh food, great service.
Awesome experience from start to finish. Had an 8pm reservation and it was ready withing about 3 minutes of our arrival. Quiet with the lights low. Food was made to our specifics, it was hot an fresh and tasted great. As an appetizer, the Smoked Salom Hummus was good as was the house bread. We ended up getting the lasagna and the spaghetti w shrimp and zucchini. Even had a slice of cheesecake to top it all off. The waiter, Buddy, was very good and was knowledgeable about the various menu choices. We even had a manager come over to ask how the food / service was. Top notch all the way around and we will most definitely be back again. I highly recommend this place!

Italian at the Mall
We had tried Adriatic Grill some time ago and were not impressed. My how times change. We decided to give the restaurant another try after a couple of people we know who are foodies said they liked it. This time we had a great meal off the daily specials menu. The pasta was cooked al dente and the sauce was flavorful and not too heavy. I had a chicken dish, which was properly cooked--nicely grilled but not dried out, and my dining partner had the steelhead with pesto--also not over cooked. An additional pleasure was finding a Roero Arneis on the wine menu that was reasonably priced compared to the local retail price.
