Server was just rushing everything. I understand its Summerlicious but we felt rushed. We tried to make small talk and smile with him but no reaction at all.

Service was good but food was just ok. We were not aware that they were serving the summerlicious menu only until we arrived. It was very disappointing because we wanted to order from the regular menu as the summerlicious options were sub par. They were also out of the wine options we picked from the list. They should inform people ahead of time when reservations are made that they are not serving the regular menu. Being that it was a Friday evening, it would be difficult to find another location to celebrate our anniversary last minute. We won’t be back.

This is probably my third time at Adega for lunch, during Summerlicious. Every time I have enjoyed the service, plating and the food.

Tried the Summerlicious menu. Service was great. Only thing that was off was the seafood bisque, but that might have been due to my own tastes.

Great food, champagne, duoro wine. Excellent grilled squid and octopus (signature dish). Phenomenal Grilled sardines, tapas-salted cod coquettes. Merginue Dessert-special Portuguese dessert and the passion fruit crepe brûlée - the most unique and tasty ever! It was our 28 wedding anniversary - fantastic experience blend of food, ambience and service. Highly recommend. We are 905’ers and will drive to Adega again and again and again. Cheers!

The soap of the day was very bland. The fettuccine in cream with scallop & smoked bacon bland and lacking flavour. Bacon was almost nonexistent and maybe you got a small scallop sliced. The seafood risotto was better.

We had a great experience at Adega. The food and wine were both delicious. We started with a large shared appetizer that included many appetizers and small plates. There was a great atmosphere for our reunion. The room was not too loud. We really enjoyed our time here and would return!

The signature grilled octopus was good, but left me wishing I had made another choice. The Cesar salad was good (Cesar was a chef in Acapulco, so "Caesar salad", though universally used, is incorrect). Wines were too expensive. Service was good; they let me substitute risotto for potatoes with no fuss, and the risotto was very good. Overall the experience was good; not great.

Four of us had a great experience. We were in town on business and this came highly recommended. We asked our server (Emily) to pick out everything for us and the food came fast and was delicious! Great service and food quality if you like mexican/southwest. Reposado margerita was tasty! The decor is very cool also.

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.
