We’ve gone for the Sunday brunch buffet twice and everything is stellar. Amazing selection and the service is on point which can be difficult in a buffet setting. Recommend X 100

I took my mother to Adele’s for the Mother’s Day brunch, the atmosphere was lovely, our server Matthew was wonderful and very attentive. My mom and I enjoyed our time at Adele’s, however the food was extremely under seasoned and bland not much flavor to anything other than the kale salad and the rosemary potatoes, mind you I’m pregnant so I tried everything and the only food items on the buffet that I enjoyed were those two, it probably would’ve better if I was able to season my food with some salt and pepper but not one table had salt and pepper shakers/mills on them so I was stuck eating bland food. Other than the bland food I enjoyed myself, however I honestly wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to any of friends or family because it’s over priced for the bland food that’s served.

I went with my friend for their typical Sunday brunch. It just happened to be the same day as Mother’s Day. This means that their Sunday buffet price changes from $28 to $48 a person with very minimal food additions. When booking this reservation a few months ago, I had no idea that this day in particular would increase the cost. Even after partaking in the buffet and finishing our meal, the check came and it was sticker shock. It should have been more clear that their pricing had changed. The manager was able to bring the cost down to $30- $2 above the normal Sunday. However, it could have alleviated some of the frustration felt if it was posted on the front door or reiterated before seating. The food was very good and a wide variety for a buffet getting a great combination of breakfast and lunch food.

drinks (Diet Coke, coffee) didn’t come out for 20 mins and two reminders one for each drink. Side never came. Waiter was nice
But service much worse than I would have expected. Food took a long time— was only maybe half full of patrons.

Noisy atmosphere in a cool, urban farmhouse space. Good food, service okay. If you need something, be prepared to get up out of your seat to retrieve it. This lack in service is probably okay for the twenty-something crowds that frequent the place but for a seasoned foodie it’s not great.

We happened in on Vanderbilt’s Graduation Day, so it was a brunch Buffett . Typically not my favorite way to dine. But everything was presented beautifully and very fresh, and gave us a chance to try more things from the menu than just one or two items. I would definitely return for another visit.

I am not sure if it was the day we picked or if it’s normally that loud inside due to the building but we could not hear our waitress at all. The noise was at a very uncomfortable level, think high school cafe noise. The food was great but we only ate one plate each because of the noise, our table was ready to go. The value is good for hungry guess but no al cart made it expensive for us with a teenage girl that only ate a few bites and drank two glasses of OJ. Small wine glass of OJ $3 each and a very expensive bagel because that’s all she ate. Had we known it was only buffet and no menu items we would have skipped it. My husband and I will go back and try again, we will refer friends but tell them the negatives we experienced along with it.

The food was excellent. The service was meh, but I am not a fan of a restaurant that wants to obviously hustle you through by taking the entire meal order up front, "because many of the dinner items take up to an hour to prepare"...ahem, look at the menu, I think not! A table near us was in and out in 35 minutes ordering app, salad, steak and pork. At this price point I expect an unhurried dinner experience. We chose to go with sharing salads and several apps. All were fantastic! We felt very fortunate to be able to forcibly slow the dinner hour by insisting on ordering a couple of apps at a time. The restaurant is very loud.

To recap, terrific food but be ready to force slowing the dinner timing or to be hurried through.

Extremely LOUD restaurant makes it difficult to converse. We had a 7:15p.m. reservation and were seated in a nice corner by the window. Having said that, it was still so very loud as there are no sound barriers in the restaurant. Food was delicious, service was very good but if you are wanting to visit with your friends or family, you might opt to go when they are less busy or elsewhere.

We arrived early (5:15 pm) Tony, the valet, took great care of our vehicle. We were greeted as we entered and were seated on time. Our waiter, David, did an excellent job of explaining the various appetizers and entrees. The service was prompt and efficient. We never had to ask for anything. David appeared at just the right times. We had a very enjoyable experience.
