    I've always been a fan of salmon filet nicely grilled with charred vegetables and a sauce but I was very impressed with the presentation and taste of the salmon Wellington, a new menu addition. Very satisfying.

    We ordered the Salmon Wellington. It was perfectly cooked and delicious. We also ordered the 14 oz. Rib-eye Steak au poivre which was very tender, well-marbled, and delicious. Just a little too much pepper and could use more of the sauce, but still delicious. The only criticism is that the loaded baked potato could have been warmer. However, it was delicious too!

    The Ahi Tuna entree was not fresh. Tuna seemed old and fishy. The salmon wellington was very good in comparison. Excluding the Ahi main course the experience was very good with good service and nice atmosphere.

    I gave an extra star because the waiter was upbeat and did his job well. But, I ordered the Ahi and it came with artificial grill marks and tasted like it had been precooked, frozen and then thawed and reheated for the plate. I can’t prove that was the order of operation but that’s what it tasted like. Sent it back and got pizza. Didn’t go to Adelina’s to get pizza but that’s what happened.

    Four of us ordered. The baby back ribs were excellent! The special portabello mushroom entree was very good. The chicken medallions with mushrooms were excellent. My ribeye started out good and lean and tasted great. Unfortunately, I began getting a lot of grizzle. By the time I finished the steak, there was a pile of grizzle equal to an eighth of the size of the steak. It was inedible. At $55/ steak, I expected more. Service was excellent as usual!

    I really can't review most things because after standing at the podium next to the sign that said "please wait to be seated" and being ignored not only by the restaurant staff but by some woman manning the desk to the club house, I finally left. The bartender and waitress saw me but did not acknowledge me in any way and no one came over We ended up going to the restaurant at the golf course where the staff is always welcoming and had a terrific meal. I've heard good things about this restaurant but that experience leaves me with no desire to try again.

    We ordered the special 2- 4oz. filet mignons topped with crab meat Oscar. The filet mignons were excellent. The crab meat was extremely over-salted. It also came with Yukon mashed potatoes that were tasty BUT COLD. The vegetable de jou was mediocre with charred sweet potatoes, and zucchini and a tomato compote. Service was excellent.

    Very quiet for a saturday Night. Bee was our server and was very attentive and friendly. We had a few special requests and she was very compliant. Food service was well paced and we did not feel rushed at all. We made a point of making this clear while ordering because we had heard some complaints about too quick service - i.e. main course arriving before salad course finished. Very pleasant setting and the sound level was refreshingly low compared to many places.

    This is the first time we've been at Adelina's for over 5 years. I was put off in the past by horrible service, long wait time for food, not to mention mediocre food when we finally got it - all in all - not worth the time or money. I was so pleasantly surprised with our meal last Sat. night. EVERYHTING was 100% better!! Will definitely go back and recommend to others. Our waitress was so nice and sweet - did a great job!!
