A great bartender and great food. The bronzinni was outstanding as well as the brussels sprouts which were nicely chared

It’s all about the food. We have had grilled octopus in Greece, Portugal and Italy but the octopus here is the best we have ever had. My salmon had a delicious lemony flavor. Service was superb. My only complaint is the acoustics in the restaurant us terrible making dinner conversation difficult.

We were very pleased with our dinner selection of Adega. We were only in Cleveland for the night and wanted something in walking distance of our hotel. It was perfect and exceeded our expectations. The noise level was the only thing that distracted from our excellant dining experience.

I took my wife to Adega this past Weekend for her Birthday and found the visit very disappointing. When we arrived we were seated immediately and there we sat for the next 10 minutes waiting for our waiter to greet us. After being fed up with waiting, I walked over to the hostess stand to make it known that it was my wife’s birthday and I wanted this to be a special evening for her and we hadn’t been greeted. The hostess told me that she would send someone over right away, which she did but we didn’t even receive an apology for the wait from the waiter. In fact, he had no idea that we had waited so long and was under the assumption that we had just been seated. From that moment on the evening went much better and the food was fantastic but the dinner was anything but special. They didn’t even mention anything about my wife’s birthday when I indicated that in my reservation and when I approached the hostess stand. If you’re thinking about Adega for a special occasion, keep looking because there are far better places. However, if you’re just looking to have a nice dinner, then I would recommend it, although it is rather pricey especially considering you have to pay to valet your car to even go there.

The pasta dishes we had were very very good. The chef knows how to cook pasta truly al dente, unlike some others in this town who think al dente means "chewy". The sauce Bolognese was an interesting twist on the traditional.

We grabbed a bite before going to the theatre. Our server was also the bartender and it showed in lack of attentiveness. I ordered the "Bulgur Bowl" $9 salad. Very disappointing. It came on a side plate and was mostly arugula. Maybe a tablespoon of bulgur wheat. Also no piquillo peppers that I could detect at all. Will not be going back.

Our party of three had a wonderful experience at Adega. We arrived early for a reservation and had drinks at the bar while we waiting. Shawn, the bartender, was awesome to talk to and gave us recommendations for things to do around the city. The local craft beer selection was great. Our server, William, told us stories about the city and gave us excellent menu recommendations- we went with everything he recommended and were not disappointed. My favorites were the bolognese and octopus. Overall, we had a wonderful meal and will definitely be back when we are in Cleveland again.

The hostess, manager and wait staff were very friendly and professional. There is a nice selection of gourmet dishes to choose from, and an amazing wine collection on display in a glass case. We enjoyed the mozzarella cubes for our appetizer, which have an especially delicious sauce, and the candied walnut, apple and arugula salad. I ordered the Vegetable Moussaka, which was beautifully prepared, but unfortunately, was too spicy for me. The manager offered to bring me something else at no charge, and when I declined, took the item off the bill, even though I assured him the fault was mine. Our waiter William was attentive and personable. Overall, we had a wonderful experience here and I highly recommend it.

My boyfriend and I made reservations at Adega because it was within walking distance to Keybank State Theater. We had tickets to a show and didn't want to have to drive or walk too far from where we would be eating. We were extremely pleased with the service and overwhelmed with the food. The bartender recommended and appetizer that was delicious. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about all items on the menu and made excellent recomendations as well. We enjoyed everything.

Overpriced wines and entrees. Would definitely go back for an appetizer and a drink and will recommend it to friends. However, my husband and I didn't think the food was anything outstanding and portions were small for the prices paid. Desserts were the best part...well made and excellent. I will say it is the new "in" spot.

Service was spotted. We were served our main course before the salad we ordered. Lots of drunk Cleveland Indian fans (opening game), which change the restaurant environment from a fine dining experience to a sports bar mentality. However the quality of the food was excellent. Restaurant staff had a hard time managering and service was poor.

Food was delicious, this was our second visit.
The service left a bit to be desired...took way longer than normal to get beverage service.
Drinks are pricey, so beware.

All in all, we would go back a third time. Both meals were great.

I always enjoy meeting with my client, Medical Mutual at Adega as it is the perfect atmosphere and location. Rick (Manager) is an absolute delight and I can't recall the name of our server even though he told me twice, but he was very accommodating and pleasant as well. No complaints, no recommendations for any type of improvement, everything is 100% perfect! Keep up the great work!

Had a work group for dinner - everyone really enjoyed it. The waiter was incredible - Dan. He had the backstory for everything and really knew the menu options. The meals were excellent, one guest said everything just tastes so fresh. Great flavors, really fresh food, enjoyed the salmon, pasta with shellfish, bolognes and chicken. Really a great experience.

We had a big party of 19 people and they were able to accommodate us in our own room. Mo, our server, was great!! He made sure we were all "comfortable" all throughout the night. Food was also great!! About 90% of our party had the chicken which he did a great job explaining how the chicken was prepared since it was different than what most of us had before. The only thing I wish we had was a low level of background music in the room.

Do yourself a favor: Order the mushroom hummus for your appetizer or a munchie before a Playhouse Square show. It's devine.
