Oh so good. A treat for a native as it looked like so many were tourists.

Waitress was rushing us to order all at once. We rather enjoy our meal and have courses come out with time in between. We were spending money, not just camping out. Still one of my favorite places to dine in Nashville

Mediocre across the board. Too many things to list. This restaurant used to be one of Nashville’s great. Honestly a shame it’s fallen so far.

1) They love filling the small 4 tops with glassware, and plates - choose: smaller plates or larger 4 tops.

2) Wine list severely “lacking” Not many value wines in the 40-85 range. Top of line Cab Franc (Walla Walla, $95) was “acidic” a real shame when there are literally 40 decent West Coast (CA/OR/WA) wines to choose from - Browne Tribute Cabernet. Mid Range Cab, seen in similar venues for $80-95 as an example. Personal complaint: Better Wines equal proper wine glasses. Not stemless. Stemless says : We seek easy dishwashing and inexperienced wine drinkers. Making margin on $14 bottle wines sold for $65.
How hard to sell $28 wines for $90.

3) Chips and Trout Dip: 1000 chips, 1.8oz of trout dip. Huh?

4) Upstairs dining - caution not to be seated under super large twin B&O speakers - it’s like being in “da Club” when instead, you’re having dinner. LOUD. Turn that s**t down.

5) Management & Ownership: You’ve lost your way. FOCUS. Be a hip happy hour place with “small plates & vibe” Or grow up and be a restaurant that educates and matures. The experimentation - middling way phase must end or plenty of folks will lose interest.

Service was solid - other than twice bringing us a Martini we did not order. Staff very upbeat & pleasant.

Aesthetic of restaurant is very nice , napkins top notch, steak knives are poor.

Food was a “B-/C+” Not gonna win many awards for short ribs that “devolves as Pot Roast,” unless your cousin is writing the review.

Full disclosure: 3rd visit over 1.6 year span. 58 year young male. Tipped 24% for service, not food or wine. Designed for those who crave Mac n’ Cheese (Millennial Hell Food) and Bacon Crusted Brussel Sprouts.

This was our first visit to Adele's. Parking was easy and the valet was fast and friendly. We had reservations at noon, and were seated within a reasonable time after arriving. It was New Year's Day, so we had the brunch buffet.

The quality/taste of the food was not as good as we were expecting. We were especially looking forward to the prime rib, but it was dry and not flavorful. There were several food items on the buffet, but none really stood out. The music was loud, which made conversation very difficult. We were hoping to find a gem of a restaurant, but...

There are a lot of awesome restaurants in Nashville, and when out-of-town visitors ask for recommendations, regretfully, we can't include Adele's on our list.

The food was great and our server was awesome. The only disappointment we had was in regards to our wine suggestion. We selected 2 different reds ($85 and $88). Both were unavailable. Another bottle was recommended that was $25 more. The manager (?) offered a dessert to compensate. Didn’t = the $25 difference but it was a feature. It happens but the overall experience was really good. Will definitely be back

The food was excellent. Our server, Travis, was so knowledgeable about the food preparation and made great cocktail suggestions. Travis was attentive to our table and made us feel very comfortable. We will definitely recommend Adele’s.

Cheeseburger was overcooked and very dry. Not juicy at all. Brussel sprouts were very salty. Fried shrimp appetizer was really good. All in all - not a very good meal. Drinks are also very expensive.

Great selection of well-prepared foods. The smoked salmon with cream cheese and capers is always a treat. We loved the smoky pulled pork and the roasted chicken. The salads were amazing. We had two with dietary restrictions in our group and there was something for everyone! We'll definitely be back!

We love brunch at Adele’s. The kale salad and pork are always amazing! But y’all have to do something about how long the line gets. There has to be a better set up! Also the eggs aren’t great.

I have been to Adele’s brunch three times recently, and it’s worth bringing new friends and visitors from out of town each time. Food has always been spot on, service is great, variety is well represented in the menu.

Pre graduation dinner with family. The host could not have been nicer. We were delayed due to flight issues and he just kept reassuring us it was no trouble. Then the waitress was fantastic and took care of our every need. The shrimp appetizer with togorashi aioli could be the new favorite appetizer on the planet!

Literally the ONE place I must go when in town from Chicago. It’s the best brunch ever and so nicely priced...especially with the large spread and unlimited visits. I will say this was my third time and this past Sunday’s brunch felt exceptionally larger than the last time I went...same time of year
It’s so so worth it, just make sure you make reservations!
