We tried the duck, osso buco and lasagna, and they were all excellent. The chocolate dessert was out of this world! The ambiance was nice with the tables safely spaced apart, and the service was outstanding. It had been a long time since we were there, but we’ll definitely be back soon.

We loved coming here for brunch. We sat outside on the patio that had several heat lamps, and the server even refilled one that ran out of gas for us. The restaurant took temperatures for all guests and spaced us nicely. The food was delicious, and there were so many things we didn’t get to eat that we’ll have to come back to try!

The food was out of this world. We had the poutine, steak and gnocchi. Everything was memorable. We wish we could eat every meal at this restaurant. The staff was also top-notch.

First time to try Adele’s for brunch and we were very impressed. Beautiful outdoing patio with well spaced tables for dining, excellent service and delicious variety of food. Add in a large parking lot and you have the perfect place to experience one of the best restaurants in Nashville.

One of our favorite Nashville restaurants. Well made cocktails, very good wine list, very good food. We had the meatball app, the smoked trout dip (awesome house-made chips!), shaved salad, pork ossobuco, and coconut cake. Had plenty of leftovers to take home, and not a clunker in the lot!

Definitely on our rotation of favorite dine-out options, and they are doing a very good job with covid precautions.

We were so looking forward to dinner here on our overnight in Nashville. Unfortunately, it fell short of our expectations.

They were busy with private parties, so our food was very, very slow (45 minutes after appetizers and we still had no dinner) - in fact, it took so long that we left before the entrees arrived (never done that, tbh).

Staff seemed nice , but clearly more focused on the big groups.

Great patio and starters.

Hi LeGrandeOrange, We are happy to hear you enjoyed our patio and tasty appetizers! Please accept our sincere apologies for the wait time. This is in no way what you should expect from a visit to Adele's, and we are very sorry to have disappointed. You definitely did not experience us at our best, so we hope you will consider giving us another chance when you are back in Nashville. Warmly, The Adele's Team

Not happy about the temperature checking- that’s against HIPPA regulations. Plus we were sitting outside- come on people. Upon request - wouldn’t split meal into two plates, also asked for shoe string fried- was told those only were sold with a specific entree. Weird.

We love Adele’s and typically went every couple of weeks pre-COVID. This was our first time back since COVID, but it was everything we’d hoped: the staff was amazing and we felt safe eating there while social distancing and the food was (of course) fantastic.

Great spot for a nice dinner in the Gulch. The environment was phenomenal, the staff very attentive and helpful, and the food was great. The historic cocktails they have were fun, if a bit pricey (they were worth it though!). This is a great date spot in Nashville, highly recommend.
