My girlfriend and I were going through a rough spell and in an attempt to put things back on track, I planned a weekend trip to Toronto from our home down in the US. I went online to find a nice place to take her and we made online reservations for 9:30pm.
After driving for hours, crossing the border and driving a couple more hours, we got checked into our hotel and got dressed up for dinner. Upon arrival at 9:30 they told us that they just closed. Why have a reservation slot for the time you close? Needless to say I was left embarrassed in front of my girl (technically ex-girlfriend) and we ended up going down the street to Elm Tree (Highly recommended by the way!)
Very unhappy with the experience. Would not recommend to anyone.
Very enjoyable. The server was terrific, the 'free' apps were tasty, Transat app was not too good, the price for the snapper was a bit high. It would be nice to have 1/2 litre of wine option.
All in all, wonderful.
Amazing authentic Portuguese food, impeccable service, great wine selection. It was a special night out so worth every penny.
Loved the food, the ambiance and the service!!! Thank you, will definitely be back.
Well-trained professional service. Outstanding food (we tried several apps and an entree). Liked the art on the wall. Special place.
Delicious food and gracious service. Highly recommended.
Food and service were both excellent. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
The food was fantastic. The servers were attentive. Nothing to complain about.
We were visiting Toronto for a weekend and wanted something authentic and good for fish and seafood. Portuguese sounded just exotic enough to add some romance to the evening and it was. It is more than the food, it was the attentive and seamlessly professional wait staff, the hushed lighting, the solicitous maître d'hôtel.... Don't miss the experience of being expertly guided to some excellent Portuguese wines as well.
Authentic Portuguese food. Service was fantastic. Waiter was very thorough and picked out a great wine for us. Food was well seasoned, plentiful and super tasty!
Excellent food and knowledgeable professional service, would definitely go back.
Fabulous meal as always.
Busy restaurant for a Monday evening. Menu is primarily seafood. Main entrees were generously proportioned. According to a couple of my dining companions there is a dining room in the basement wine cellar where you can have a private dinner.
Very good food, service and ambiance. The best grilled octopus I've had in Toronto!
Always a lovely meal
Great service and very friendly staff. The food was amazing.
We had steak and the daily fish special. I loved my fish.
Took my wife out for a birthday dinner. We both enjoyed the good food and wonderful service.
Food and service was excellent
The decor a little outdated like I was stuck in the 90s
Definitely would recommend this restaurant especially if you like fish it’s what the Portuguese are known for
Can’t wait to go back
Service was good, food was tasty. Only complaint is my pasta had sliced scallops so the restaurant could save money. I paid $24 for a small bowl of pasta that should have full size scallops and more bacon.
Great place for dating. Food is amazing.
The food itself was well cooked. My squid was amazing and all the desserts were great. The restaurant is louder than I prefer but you could still hear your group so it was okay. The decor was warm and inviting. We had to move tables unfortunately as they had some lights that wouldn’t stop flickering above us. There were bones in the fish we got and they did not do anything to make up for that so I wasn’t impressed there. It was nice however that all the staff were Portuguese and knew the wine list very well. Service was friendly but lacked steady pacing throughout the meal. All it all it was nice enough but not top of my list to return to.
We had the winterlicious menu. Everything was delicious! Even our kids (18months and 4 years old) loved it, and cleaned their plates.
This is a great place with a charming ambiance, fantastic service and a very distinct menu. The bisque and capon were absolutely delicious. I will recommend it and will definitely come again myself.
We tried this restaurant during Winterlicious. The food was very tasty but the portions skimpy. Overall the experience was pricey for what we received.
We were very impressed with the food and service. We certainly will go back and taste other items on the menu.
This was my first time at Adega, but will definitely be back. The service was great, the food delicious and the restaurant was not overly loud, so you could still enjoy a conversation.
There were quiet booths and we sat in one of them. The waitering staff were very attentive and friendly. Lobster and crab bisque were rich in flavor. Our pasta and mushroom risotto tasted pretty authentic. Mixed sorbet and creme caramel were very delicious as well.
My friend & I always enjoying dining at Adega. We enjoy the excellent service & food. Waiters are informative and friendly.
This is a wonderful experience I had. The food was great that did not let me down. I would like to suggest my friends to come.
Excellent in every way. The food was delicious and just the right portions. The server was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. The ambiance was delightful and we were able to visit with our friends with out being rushed. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
I will come again.
Good food for a Winterlicious menu.
No compromise for quality.
We had an exceptional experience. We were fortunate to have been given a very private little dining nook, that only improved on the experience. The seafood dinner was delightful, and the servers were highly professional, appropriately attentive without being intrusive, and had excellent knowledge of the menu options. This was a top notch experience, worthy of the price paid.
Great evening! Loved the Grilled Squid appetizer and the Linguine with Tiger Shrimp! Creme Brulee was also fabulous. My husband loved his Sea Bream special but thought his chef's soup lacked some flavour; he wished he had had the Grilled Squid when he tasted mine. This was our 3rd-4thtime dining at Adega and we will definitely be back again. Our server, who was Portuguese, was outstanding! Very attentive to every detail! A very enjoyable evening! Highly recommend!
Cataplana was good, but not served very hot
Portion was more adequate for 1 versus sharing
Tasty but not as good as what we had while vacationing in Portugal
Overall the taster platter was very tasty and great selection
Great restaurant. Wonderful Portuguese wine list and knowledgeable wait staff.
Whenever in Toronto, Adega is a place we love to go. Sardines appetizer and Octopus special main course is my way to go. The seafood soup special is also always out of this world. Warm, charming staff and a great ambiance.
Grilled squid and octopus was perfectly seasoned and cooked. Service was fantastic as well.
Disappointed with the fish soup
Adega is the only restaurant in Toronto I would describe as "consistently amazing." I have been eating at Adega for years and it is my go-to special occasion dinner spot. I have treated friends and family (from around the globe) to dinner there and everyone comments on the hospitality, great food and great vibe.
They have honed the menu and still offer many (many!) specials. I appreciate a well edited wine list which offers reasonable prices for wines by the glass to bottles.
The Portuguese hospitality, seafood and wines are not to be missed whether you are visiting Toronto or are a native.
