Lamb special was delicious. Seafood risotto was good but not perfect. Alcohol very expensive. Nice restaurant and waiter was great. Nice dinner before theatre.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and dessert. We both had the fish stew "boullabaisse" which was so delicious, good amount of seafood, broth was very good too and had a few pieces of mini beans which were nice and crunchy.
The dessert was lychee flavoured creme brule.

What an enjoyable meal!!

Great meal prior to seeing Hamilton at the Mirvish Theatre. Amazing food. Had the fish stew which was outstanding. Got us out to the theatre in good time. This guys are top notch. A great Portuguese restaurant! I highly recommend it.

All the food we had was outstanding and the service was great. It is a little pricey for what you get but for a special occasion it well worth it. Only suggestion would be to have a wine menu that wasn't so focused on Portuguese wines.

The unusual Toronto fine dining experience: it's quiet, even with all the tables occupied.
Reliably delicious food, and some surprises. I'm confident anything they serve is good, but their fish always delights. Never get tired of Adega.

We went for dinner the last night of Winterlicious and thoroughly enjoyed the sardine salad, which was unexpected in a positive way, the Portuguese cheese salad, and the squid entree. The chocolate tarte and creme brulee were fantastic. There were several loud diners beside us, which was unpleasant, but not within the restaurant's control. A quiet corner table would have made our experience more positive. The food quality was excellent, but the portions were a bit spartan for the price. I imagine that the downtown rents affect that. The service was polite and attentive.

Came here for a Winterlicious. Although the food tasted all good, its portion was really small and still felt hungry after.

We went to Adega on Feb 11th for a Winterlicious lunch. My appetizer - fried sardines - was a combination of cold fish and peaces of pineapple that I did not enjoy much. Neither did my wife enjoy her watery soup with bits of smoked sausage. The main dish - risotto with mushrooms - was as tasty and as mashed as an army field kitchen meal. The desert - cream caramel - was really good. The service was good as well.

I had the Winterlicious set menu with my girlfriend. I had the Sardine with Salsa Verde, the Linguine with Tiger Shrimp and Chipotle sauce, and the creme caramel. The Sardine with Salsa Verde had good flavours, but it was a very small portion and had too many onions and other root vegetables that didn't complement the flavour well. The pasta was very simple (shrimp, pasta, and sauce), but it was a bit bland. A little bit of seasoning could've went a long way. The creme caramel was very good, but it was also very small.

Overall, I wouldn't say this place was amazing nor bad, it was an average experience that lacked a bit of flavour and had small portion sizes.

We attended Winterlicious and enjoyed all the food items selected. I had the sardines, grilled squid and crème brulee and enjoyed them immensely. The flavours were excellent, but the portion sizes were small. Would go back to try the regular menu, especially the risotto.

The menu was the seasonal Winterlicious menu and was a wonderful way to sample a variety of dishes if attending with friends.
I’ll be back to try their regular menu as the food and service were wonderful.

Food was exceptional! Nice little twist on traditional Portuguese cuisine. Went during Winterlicious fixed menu, good selection. Had the sardines as an app and squid as main, was completely satisfied. Would definitely come back to try rest of the menu!

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.
