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
Was just barely warm.

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

NY Steak needs more flavor and/or seasoning or sauce and no reason to cut it for me, it’s gets cold faster.

Cocktail says it comes with basil but ours and the others we saw came with rosemary.

Broccolini is actually broccoli florets, not broccolini, but was great as was the duck.

Very good food and service was great

Adele was a great restaurant with Sunday brunch buffet that included many varieties of delicious food; seafood, meat, chicken, breakfast items, lots of vegetables, fruits and cake.
We went last week on 21st expecting the same old Adele but I was told that because of Covid the waiter will bring the food which is ok.
1st surprise was a menu that didn’t include quarter of the old Adele varieties.
2nd surprise, we were told that we have to share one plate of food (7 Shrimps), so I expected that when it is finished, they will bring another one like any other buffet but no.
One plate of the following items that is for two people (that doesn’t feed one person)
Sausage, biscuit with gravy, salad, yogurt, and fruit salad (normally we wouldn’t pick any of them)
The food is for one person (child) but the bill was for two.

Returned to Adele’s after a poor experience a few years ago hoping it had improved. Unfortunately, not the case. Arrived at 6:30pm and finished our meal at 8:45pm due to incredibly slow service. Ordered appetizer and waited over 30 mins for it to arrive. Had to flag down waitress to place our entree order. After sitting waiting for 30 or 45 mins found the manager who asked us to explain in detail what was going on. He was clueless there was an issue. He apologized and left. 15-20 mins later 3 of 4 meals arrived. 5 mins later 4th arrived. Food quality varied from good (duck breast) to fair (steak). Overall, nobody was happy when we left. Waitress offered free dessert, we took 2 which is a $16 value, to compensate for inept service. Nice atmosphere and concept but a total lack of performance. Wouldn’t recommend unless you have a lot of time to kill and don’t mind waiting around.

The restaurant is pretty noisy, but not to the point that you can't have a conversation.
We were happy with the service overall.
I ordered the duck, but it was a bit tough and the skin wasn't as crispy as I like, but the flavors were there.
I would highly recommend this restaurant and will go back again when we return to Nashville.
