We went for a birthday dinner, and I mentioned to our server it was for a birthday, but he was forgetful. After ordering drinks, he brought me mine but that was it. I had to ask him about my wife’s wine and then he remembered. Our apps were mediocre, but our mains, salmon for my wife and scallop fettuccini for myself we’re both great. For dessert we shared a dish, but as I stated earlier our server was forgetful. So we will be forgetting this place as well.

Grilled squid appetizer was delicious, as were both my main dish (Linguine with Tiger Shrimp) and dessert (White Chocolate Creme Caramel). Service was excellent! A gem Portuguese restaurant that warrants many repeat visits!

Would highly recommend their Grilled Squid, you can choose to have it as an appetizer or main dish (includes vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, beans, and leafy vegetable) and their Linguine with Tiger Shrimp for their unique flavour with a spicy kick.

This is one of the best restaurants in Toronto. The chef takes Portuguese cuisine to a new level. I have never had a dish that at the end I could not say it was exceptional. The service is great and the Portuguese wine list is excellent, ask the staff if you are not familiar with Portuguese wines for assistance. Must try dishes to me are the octopus and the rack of lamb (not on the menu all the time).

The food was great like always. However we were sold to a port wine as a 20 year ruby without being advised that it was a ruby until after he had brought it and pretty much left us no choice but to drink it.
Turns out we had original asked for a 10 year toni and questioned the waiter if he had a 20 because in the me u just showed the 10 year he said he did and then made sure to remo d us how much it was per glass. Which we told him it was fine not an issue. Then when we tried it and realized it did't taste like a 20 year and wasn't toni obviously by the colour we tried to questioned the waiter. He then revealed all of a sudden it was an ancient insinuating not a 20 without saying so by calling it an ancient instead of a 20 year. Very disappointed on how he tried to fool us. His actions were judging a book by its cover because we looked young. He thought he could fool is because we looked young. Very disappointed with that part of the service concerning ordering feo. The wine list using the words just in case the wine list.why couldn't he say here is the wine list. From the begining because we looked young he assumed we didnt know anything about wine or maybe would not spend the money on it. Wow boy was he wrong. That's why never judge a book by its cover. Also bathrooms need to be renovated. We have been there In the past and have never seen the bathrooms in the conditions they were in this time around structurally.

The ambiance, service, wine and not to mention the food were all exceptional. Best grilled squid i've had in Toronto by a mile. We were looking for an intimate evening and we got it, Beautiful private table, just what we were looking for. I highly recommend.

I have always found Adega exceptional. Found is outstanding and the flavours of the 3 risotto dishes are different than any others. Fish without question is fresh and cooked perfectly. The grilled calamari and sardines are the best in town. The staff at Adega is pleasant and the take the effort to make your experience rememberable. If you have room the deserts they are also to die for! Can hardly wait for my next dinner.
