Thanksgiving dinner at Adele’s was very nice. It was a buffet which was easy to access, though the lines were pretty long.

The food quality was excellent!

Would like to try it again when we can have a more traditional table service experience.

Food and drinks were very good and in line with the price point. I have used online reservations at many restaurants for birthdays, anniversarys, etc and always put that in the occasion dropdown. This is the first restaurant that recognized the birthday and actual brought out some bubbly for my wife and I - very much appreciated. Not only that but when our dessert came out there was a candle in the lemon cake - attention to detail was very impressive. Our server was Texanna was second to none - attentive without being overbearing and very friendly and helpful.

Extremely noisy. Was very difficult to have a conversation. Service was not bad but somewhat slow. My salmon was not that special and neither was the presentation or rice that was served with it. The other diners at my table had steak and the pork loin. Neither was as tender as they should have been. The steak was only lukewarm when it was served. The desserts were good but not memorable.

Food was incredible. Service wonderful. Only suggestion … the salads are big so if you are having a meal share the salad. I had the cauliflower salad and it was light and refreshing. My trout was probably best trout I’ve ever had. The shishitos were a great appetizer. We had a view of the open kitchen and they were very calm and very professional. The staff obviously respects each other and their friendly atmosphere really helped the dining experience. Highly recommend.

We requested a quiet table and the hostess was careful to place us in the perfect place for us. We also arrived early (5pm) so I’m sure that helped. Morgan, our server, was excellent. We told her we had limited time to eat because of an airport run we had to make and she made every effort to accommodate us.

We love that Adele’s has it’s own parking lot, which make downtown eating so very convenient. The food was excellent: we had several small plates, in addition to gnocchi, eggplant and chicken. All done perfectly and beautifully presented.

We were very happy with our experience.

While planning our Nashville vacation, I ran across Adele’s — in fact Trisha Yearwood has called it one of her favorites so it went on my list. It’s certainly popular as we couldn’t find a dinner reservation that fit with out plans. So we booked for Sunday brunch.
1:15 was the only time left and they close brunch at 2. By this late in service, a few items were gone and the buffet was pretty messy. However, we enjoyed the food — had chorizo over Gouda grits, crispy breakfast potatoes, a surprisingly good chopped kale salad, pulled pork, chicken with salsa verde. Everything was good — I would have appreciated a ham carving station. They also had a bagel buffet but we didn’t make it there. Their dessert buffet had samples cut in very small portions-perfect!. They were out of blackberry crisp (bummer) but I had a pecan pie bite that was a perfect ending.
So, the food was better than some brunches I’ve had. Service was uninspiring. We arrived a few minutes before our reservation and though the place wasn’t full, the hostess asked us to step to the side for just a moment. We were in clear eyesight of the desk, waiting for more than5 minutes (past our reserved time). Ends up, they had sent us a digital message that our table was ready. Why wouldn’t they just look over and tell us that? We were right there. Or tell me in the beginning that they would text when ready?
The seater was pleasant and explained the buffet process. After taking our drink order, we didn’t hear another word from our waitress. No “how is everything?” Or “can I get you another drink?” I also saw a staff member transporting dirty plates past the buffet line to the kitchen and she was swinging them, causing drips and leftover food to fly off the plate onto the floor. Just a moment later, an older man slipped a bit on that spot of the floor. A staff member did notice that and moved a rag around with his foot. So, an overall good experience w/some room for improvement.

Food was outstanding. Cauliflower salad started things out wonderfully. The vegan option which is an off-menu choice was creative and delicious. This is appreciated - we go to many restaurants that don't deliver in this area. Will add Adele's to our carry-out choices, as well as keep it as a dine-in option.
Service was good, not great. Server was a little distracted and missed a couple of details that would've made the dinner excellent.

Adele's was amazing...we took friends who came in town for the weekend. We went straight to the restaurant from the airport....and they felt completely comfortable in cute but casual attire. But if we had wanted to dress up we could have as well and it would have been appropriate. The ambience was fantastic. We had cocktails at the bar first and then were seated prior to our reserved table time. Our bartender and our servers were so friendly and helpful. We got the olives and focaccia bread as well as the meatballs served on polenta for appetizers and they were amazing. The fish and gnocchi were our favorite dishes but everything was delicious.

Food took a really long time to come out. We ordered just after we sat down, and entrees came about an hour later. Waitress was very apologetic and sent us a complimentary bruschetta- but unfortunately with smoked fish, which is not my jam. When the food did finally come out, our broccolini side was kind of cold. Food was overall good, but just OK.

I can see how this place might be a nice scene for brunch - but wouldn’t recommend for a date vibe.
