It’s been a few years since dining at this wonderful upscale Portuguese seafood restaurant. Same exceptionally attentive staff, service and of course beautifully prepared and delicious dishes. Great wine list and there are always meat selections offered for the carnivores in the group.

This was our third visit to Adega, and again, everything was exceptional. Truly wonderful food, and fabulous service! We're from Michigan, and don't get to Toronto very often, but have been so delighted with Adega that we plan to dine here every time we're in town.

We used to frequent Adega while we were working downtown. We were not surprised that the food still held up to its high quality. Attentive service too. Will definitely revisit!

Wonderful service—gracious and efficient. I had the bouillabaisse—literally the best I ever had. Light broth with a kick, fresh vegetables and loaded with a variety of seafood.

No ones fault just age of building forces scary steep stairs and claustrophobic washroom.
Don’t let that keep you away from this lovely place!
Waiter was attentive and patient with my aged companion.
Great lunch! Creme Brûlée’s a Little too runny.. but flavourful

We have eaten here twice and probably will not return. The food is good but I find it extremely pricey.
Maybe by Toronto standards it is not expensive but coming from out of town I would say it is overpriced.
I would recommend it only for a very special occasion when you wouldn't mind spending a large sum of money.

Our dinner at Adega was an outstanding experience. Our meal choices were varied & interesting & turned out delicious. Everyone enjoyed their meal. I had grilled squid & it was done perfectly - not at all chewy as can happen & tasted great. Our server was very professional & knowledgeable + the other wait staff were attentive. We liked the ambiance also. Will definitely return.

As always a warm welcome. It is a favorite when we are in Toronto. Seafood risotto is excellent and full of perfectly cooked squid and shrimp and mussels. Shrimp with linguini was delicious. White chocolate Cremé caramel is a treat we look forward to each visit.

Went with my boyfriend for Valentine’s Day. We got a very nice circle booth and prompt service from Fernando. Complimentary bruschetta was delicious, just like the remainder of the food. We were very satisfied with every component of our dining experience at Adega! Definitely recommend for a date night downtown. Especially for those looking to dine in the Yonge-Dundas area (which is typically full of chain restaurants).

Never had a bad meal the 3yrs have been coming here. No opinion on the fish dishes, dont like whole fish. Risotto, pasta,
Seafood and meat dishes are tasty and the value is in line for what you're being served. Waiters are attentive, cleaning the table, replacing table setting as needed, replenishing water, and complimentary appetizers.

I always enjoy eating at Adega. The waiters are friendly, attentive and professional. The food is perfectly cooked and impeccable seasoned. Cooking delicate seafood like octopus and squid and having it arrive at the table hot and tender is a careful balance that Adega does well. My partner and I enjoy eating there and will be back.
