The really disappointing thing about last night is that when a young drunken couple started playing music over top of the rest of the restaurant with their personally held device And swearing and behaving in a ridiculous fashion and such a lovely restaurant that the management did nothing to step in and calm things down. Please put me in the position of having to decide on whether to intervene as a customer because it was ruining the ability to focus on the conversation at my table. But the waiters and the management team did nothing. Why? I was really shocked.

We celebrated our ten year anniversary at this favourite restaurant. Why? We’ve eaten at most of the best Toronto restaurants, but this restaurant is the best value to us. Service is really old school professional with great warmth and servers remember their customers!
Food quality and presentation are outstanding. The wine list includes unusual new imports regularly.
Thank you to all the staff but especially Marco for making our Anniversary so special!

First time we went to this place. The food was excellent and service exceptional. We had family visiting from Montreal and it was nice to eat somewhere in Toronto that was authentic and fresh foods. Would recommend and we will be back.

One of the best meals I have ever had. We had the mussels and the grilled whole sea bass, and the fresh sorbet for dessert. Everything was outstanding, so delicious. The service was also impeccable. Would absolutely recommend Adega to anyone looking for an excellent meal and service.

The service was very attentive and could anticipate what we might need and when we would need it. I don't think I have had a waiter like that in a while. It was refreshing. The food was delicious and tasty. We had the calamari and it was so delicious. there was the lamb shank and that was just so tasty as well. The wine was lovely. We finished off our dinners with coffee and port as well. Just a lovely evening. The tables are nicely spaced apart and the music was lovely in the background. I would recommend for a nice Portuguese meal.

Adega is close by to our apartment and we decided to try it for date night :)

The service was great! The wine selection is extensive and very good and the food was delectable 👌🏻 It is a bit more expensive than what we usually go for, but it was a nice treat and we will come back for another special occasion 😊

A terrific place to dine. The clams. squid, cataplana, and Salmon were fantastic. it was our anniversary and I think this will be a regular stop for us going forward. The wait staff was outstanding, attentive, and made great recommendations. The Adega Lemonade is a nice way to start the evening.

Outstanding food and service. We were located in a booth by the kitchen - which lowered the overall of the meal. As we made a reservation and the patio was open, we would have enjoyed the option to select our table.

They had us sitting in a very quiet booth. The service was, as always, friendly and efficient. The food and wine (recommended by the server to go with the meal) were wonderful. The desserts — Madeira pear and three sorbets were an excellent way to complete our meal.

I have been here twice now and both times the food exceeded expectations. The seafood was delectable, cooked perfectly, and presented in a way that was so beautiful that it almost hurt to take it apart (until the first bite). The saltiness of the adeptly grilled salmon was a match made in heaven with the sweetness of the pineapple purée. The star of the show was the seasonal crème brûlée, which I actually returned for because of how lovely it was on the first visit. The cherry on top (not literally, though the dessert was served with fruit) was the excellent service which made us feel like the only ones in the restaurant. I recommend 10/10.

Outstanding! Highly recommended. Our party of 3 shared two appetizers: shrimp in piri piri sauce and a special of the day salmon gravlax with cream cheese and capers - both excellent. Our mains were the special of the day Cod with avacodo salsa, pan roasted salmon, and free range chicken in piri piri sauce - all outstanding. We finished by sharing the chocolate mouse, which again, was outstanding.

The food was wonderful as was the service. The server was wonderful and they even held the doors for us. The food was so fresh and it was a large portion.
A major point of contention for me was the kitchen staff wasn’t wearing masks! I I understand that it’s hot in the kitchen, but the mask rule also applies to kitchen staff as well. It was disappointing to see they aren’t following the rules.

Fantastic food - prepared with attention to ingredients and beautifully presented. Attentive knowledgeable service. Recommend the piri piri shrimp as an appetizer. The special sea bream filet was superb. Restaurant opened 2 weeks ago after Covid shutdown. We will be visiting again.
