It was our first time at Adele's. I'm a big fan of M Street restaurants. We got off to a rough start. When we finally (finally!) got a server, I think she was having a rough night...even though it was 5pm. The food was great. The other wait staff was getting after it. I think we just had a bit of an anomaly. Will likely try again. Patio is fantastic.

2nd time I have tried this place and again it was a disappointment. The bruschetta appetizer was soggy, bland and overpriced. For my entree I had the duck which was pretty tasty but not a big enough portion to fill up my 3 year old. We also had drinks which were weak and lacked any presentation at $13.00 a piece. After tip for 2 people our tab was $178 and we both left hungry. We stopped at Shake Shake later.

Great brunch experience. The restaurant is big and open and very well spaced out. It’s very clean and inviting. I really like how the kitchen is open to the dining area, I was able to see all the different food dishes coming out- so I ended up ordering the asparagus shaved salad, which sounds odd but it was very delicious. The shrimp and grits was delicious too. The service is great and the food was wonderful. Recommend.

We have dined at Adele’s numerous times but had not been there in about a year. We were excited to go back but ended up being disappointed in our meal. The kale salad and JW potatoes were extraordinary as usual but our entrees were mediocre at best (redfish and trout). I was willing to be a tad dissatisfied with dinner because of how amazing the coconut cake would be. However, I am most sad to say it was very dry. Our server was very kind and polite but seemed to be struggling to stay on top of everything. We believe in Adele’s so we will try again.

Waitress was excellent. Food delicious and very generous portions! The cauliflower salad was large enough for four people to split, definitely need to be added to the “shareable” part of menu. Only drawback was the acoustics, very loud place. Would have preferred leas noise for sure.

Dinner took forever. Thursday night. Huge bridal shower happening next to us. They had walls up but still super loud & obnoxious. Not the restaurant’s fault but I would ask to be sat away from private room. Huge wait time between salad and dinner. 30-45 minutes probably. They did bring us an additional entree. And management did apologize. $600 bill plus tip for 6 of us.

I’ve been to Adele twice... 1st time I sent back my steak b/c it was well done and I ordered medium rare, got a kale salad in replace... not the same. 2nd time was for brunch and the and the enchiladas were crusty and clearly had been sitting under the lamp too long. The bacon wasn’t cooked all the way and the fries were really soggy. My husband ordered the burger and it was so well done that was almost inedible. Overall, we didn’t want to send every single thing back so we called it a loss and won’t be returning. All hype and nothing to back it up.

The Meatball Appetizer was not hot. The gnocchi was not good and the blonde dessert was cold even the cast iron skillet was cold. Usually it is served warm with ice cream on top. The Brussels sprouts and potatoes were great though. The taste of the meatballs were great but the temp

I have to first say that this was the restaurant I was most wanting to try on our trip, so I went with high expectations, which isn't always a good thing. However, Adele's blew us out of the water. I will go in order of how things started. There is easy parking. The contemporary farmhouse-urban garage design was so cool! The staff from the check-in to our waitress, and the people serving Easter brunch (behind plexiglass to be safe) were truly delightful. The Easter brunch was DELICIOUS! If I gained 5lbs that day...I didn't even care! We are from Chicago so we are spoiled foodies and Adele's did not disappoint. We helped ourselves to brunch as staff served you and when we came back to the table there was a wonderful tray of breads, jam, and cream cheese. There were several fresh salads, eggs, bacon, sausage, beef, ham, shrimp cocktail, and even lamb and please know there is too many items to add. Their creative brunch drink beverage menu was outstanding too! I had a light whiskey-based drink with a piece of bacon in it. I am not a big drinker so, I drank it slowly and loved every sip along the way. Just when we thought we were done, we were greeted with our personal tray of desserts. We give Adele's a 10/10 & we cannot wait to bring our entire family back! Hopefully, this summer :) Trust me, it is worth your trip! #southerncharmforsure
