Adele’s was recommended and did not disappoint. The vibe is cool inside of a converted mechanic garage. We had some of the offerings that chef is most known for - the kale, JW chicken and JW potatoes and all were delicious. There was a burgundy in the wine list that was a good complement. And David was an informative and attentive server.

The food was great, David our waiter was outstanding! We arrived 10 minutes early and waited in our car until we saw others go towards the door. We all stood out in the oppressive heat and waited there until after 5. There was no reason they could not have let us all in to stand and wait in the air conditioning. When they let us in the girls up front didn’t not even greet us. We almost left because of it. Our waiter made it worth it but first impression was not good at all!

Everything was perfect but it was on another level because of the service. Our waitress on her own, confirmed our choices before we ordered and they came out so well I had to finish every bite even though I was a bit stuffed from eating so well earlier in the day. Portion sizes were perfect, ambiance was great and the Music dB was great. I would definitely come back!!

I really don't get the hype for this place.
We arrived for our scheduled reservations on time. We were seated and our order was taken for 2 entrees with one side and 2 drinks.
We then proceeded to wait a SOLID HOUR to get any food. No reason was given. Our server seemed very efficient but not obviously her fault.
I ordered the pork with kidney beans and a side of their "signature" potatoes. The beans were without seasoning, the pork was well-cooked and the potatoes were just roasted--maybe twice roasted--but "signature"?
The next day we took a tourist trolley circuit that passed by the restaurant while the guide extolled it's exclusivity and high quality then joked "if you can't get in--you could go to McDonald's next door!" We were so frustrated with Adele's the night before we had considered it. No joke.

Awesome dinning experience. The food, the service, and the ambiance were excellent. Although the server said she was new to the restaurant and fine dinning she did an outstanding job from helping us navigate the menu to creating great conversation. Because we weren’t very hungry our family of four shared an appetizer, a salad, and entree, and two sides. The highlight of the meal was definitely the kale salad and jw chicken. If ever in town again we would definitely return.

We visited on a busy Friday night with a number of large tables so perhaps my thoughts would be different under other circumstances. The food was good especially the appys and salad. The main courses took a very long time. My dish was not very hot. I must say that the manager was receptive to our concerns and I really appreciated that! Our server was great at the start but things got really busy and the 10-12 place tables needed a lot of attention. On the current climate, with the difficulties in getting employees, I do understand that things don’t always go perfectly.

Our server, Angela, was terrific. The food was delicious (meatballs, shaved asparagus salad, salmon, gnocchi, & coconut cake). The restaurant was very hot-luckily enough customers commented on it so they turned in the fans and people were literally cheering when they did. The restaurant is all open with concrete floors so it’s very loud and definitely not an “intimate” or quiet spot if that’s what you are looking for.
