Cute little place near Union Square. Interesting menu as it says Mediterranean, but randomly has tacos and burgers...? Regardless, the octopus was really great. Highly recommend! They also have happy hour so get there before 7! The staff was just fantastic and really accommodating.

Nice selection on Meze platter. Wine was a bit pricey, even for NYC.

Restaurant was dark. Some of the dishes were hit or miss. One waiter serving a large section so there was some delay in ordering and getting our check

excellent turkish food--and plenty of options for vegetarians.
we asked to sit in the back, away from the bar, for the quiet--which made dinner esply pleasant.

The service was extremely slow. The food was not horrible it not very good. The atmosphere was loud. It could be a cozy place if it had good food and service. It had a hooping bar scenes. Go there for drinks

Food was good. Place was boiling hot on arrival. Had to ask twice to lower / turn off heat... Had to wait an inordinate amount of time for the final entree to arrive. No decaf coffee?! Not very attentive service ... had to ask twice for wine. Food was good though.

Just doesn't work to have a restaurant separated with a curtain from the very loud bar section. Not to mention dining while they moved an entire bench out of the restaurant in order to accommodate musicians that were coming in to play. All very odd.

Poor experience. There were cockroaches on the wall right next to our table. It was disgusting and when we told our server he said “yeah they sprayed in here today, so the bugs come out!” Never going back. Besides that loud and service not great.

Six of us went for dinner before a 9PM show at the Daryl Roth Theatre. Good location, comfortable space. Food was good for the price,but the service was a bit disappointing. We were early, which wasn't a problem, but the server seemed a bit overwhelmed by us. We did want to order apps first but he forgot to take drink orders. After a while we had to track him down. When the bill was put on the table, we gave them two cards to split. When they brought the bill for us to sign, they had charged someone else's dinner by mistake. It was a similar total to ours, so it took us a minute to catch it. It's a small restaurant which we really liked, but makes the spotty service a bit more puzzling. Definitely go to Adalya, but plan to advocate for yourself a little more than usual.

Really good food, especially the fried cauliflower. Friendly service and sophisticated decor. The tapas and other plates to share were perfect for a girls' dinner. Weeknight wasn't too crowded.

Some dishes were excellent (fried cauliflower, halumi with spinach, tacos) and some were disappointing (brussel sprouts, side of mixed veg and french fries).

To be fair, it’s a Mediterranean restaurant, and we didn’t order any Mediterranean food. We ordered a burger and a chicken sandwich. The burger was very good, and there was a huge pile of fries, which were ok. The chicken sandwich was nothing special, the chicken was ok, it was weird to have asparagus on it, the sun dried tomato was hard to chew, the melted cheese was good. It, too, came with a huge pile of fries, but I switched out the regular fries for seasoned, curly fries and those were very good. It was happy hour so all beers were $5 but they didn’t have our first request in stock. The place was pretty empty on a Saturday night, but we left at 7:00 pm and it was even more empty. Service was ok but slow, despite the few people there.

Good enough food from a very brief menu. This is basically a bar and, as such, loud. Nice bar, nice drinks and nice bar food. A bit pricey. Not really for a relaxed dinner.

The menu is significantly different than what you see on Open Table. The food has some good points, but stay away from the pasta. The restaurant was a good place for our large group to eat.

The outdoor seating is really nice in the summer and the staff was attentive and friendly. The appetizers were good but the mains were disappointing given how expensive they were. Overpriced given the quality of the food which was fine but nothing noteworthy. I would not recommend for a full meal but was great for tapas and happy hour, especially if you want to sit outside but not on the sidewalk

Wouldn't rec for the food. Pretty cool place to have a drink. Garden level space with 2? 3? tables outdoors that looked welcoming. Inside dark-ish. Sports televised in bar area. Stop in for a drink and move on for food. Great neighborhood.

We tried this restaurant because it was near a theatre performance we would be attending afterwards. We were lucky in that there was hardly anyone there on this holiday weekend and so it was very quiet which we like. We sat in the back and had a pleasant table and waiter although he must have been fairly new because he was basically uninformed but quickly got the answers to our questions and was very sweet. It was Happy Hour so we enjoyed drinks at discounted prices and $1 oysters which were very good. The tapas we tried were all excellent. We can't wait for another reason to be back in this neighborhood and come here again.

Food was okay. Very small menu- no iced tea and no deserts. We went there to enjoy a nice meal with friends we haven’t seen in awhile. We did enjoy— place was quiet, which enabled good conversation.

A cute cafe with a bad menu, bad food and overpriced booze

I wanted to like this place as it is a cute looking cafe with outdoor seating, but the food is just so bad. The menu online does not match the menu as the actual restaurant. This place is supposed to be Mediterranean yet they have tacos and other random items on their menu. The hummus was thick and greasy, the octopus was not fresh, and the haloumi cheese was sliced WAY too thick.

To top it all off the booze were overly expensive. I left overcharged and unsatisfied.

Unfortunately Adalya was a disappointment all around, except for the fact that we got to sit out side (there are a couple patio tables). The service was friendly, but slow and forgetful--it took three asks to get water, twice to get salt, that kind of thing. The food was just okay. We tried many things, including a trio of dips (hummus was fine, tzatziki was very good, baba ganoush was meh) that came with slightly stale sesame bread. The Brussels sprouts were overly sweet (advertised with honey, yes, but soaked in it) and came out cold; the haloumi cheese was excellent (hard to ruin?); and the truffle-cream pasta was pretty bland. There's so much excellent Mediterranean food in the city, it's too bad this was a bust.
