Great food. Dry Kurobota pork chop. Please bring back the sliced strip steak chimichurri.
Thank you!
P.S. High wine bottle prices are a turnoff.

Our birthday dinner here was in capable hands—from Jet‘s reception (his smile and warmth put as immediately at ease) to Ciara’s perfect table service (sincere, informed and attentive) and manager Noe’s subtle checking in to ensure we were satisfied. Satisfied? It was a wonderful evening, from beginning to end. The crew just clicks, supporting each other seamlessly to the diners’ benefit.

Once again another homerun at Adelinas. The new Langostino Bruschetta was out of this world. My friend got the Duck and Shiitake Piza special (we were told there were only 3) which was phenomenal, and I got the Root Scallops with root vegetable puree. It was amazing. The manager, Johnothan, who was the head bartender let me try a new cocktail he is working on. It was a traditional whiskey sour with fresh house made sour mix and the egg white!!! A true craft cocktail!!! Can't wait till it's on the menu. Our server Marco was great as always. Definitely will be back soon!!!

Have eaten at Adelina's several times. Something needs to be done about the sun coming in through the windows. The small shades are not adequate. I sat at a table just off the bar area and while the other three people at our table were out of the sun, I was blinded by it and had to wear my sun glasses through the entire meal. Quite annoying.

Adelina's still has a little way to go to be "top notch" - but I saw some improvement at lunch yesterday. My friends and I all enjoyed our food; in particular, the shishito peppers were fab! Also fab was Michael our waiter. Still a little slow on the bread service, but as for everything else, very attentive and good quality. Enjoyed it!

Seated in poor area; felt like we were in the penalty box at hockey game since we have not been regulars.
Took forever to get drinks before ordering, then food was not quite mediocre, worst fish and
chips in nearly 60 years of enjoying that dish here on Central Coast. Drinks were OK. Elegant
site, in a "massive" way but didn't come close to compensating for the downside. Will not return.

Adelina's has a beautiful facility with a wonderful view of the park-like surroundings and an elegant design touch. The service was a bit rushed at the start and some ordered elements had to be requested twice, but the servers and waitstaff were very polite and accommodating. Food was very good. Chateaubriand was cooked med-to-med well (we prefer med-rare) and was tender and tasty. Desert and salad were very good and, once again, well prepared and presented. The value was exceptional, as we went on "Date Night" and had the prix fixe dinner. All in all a very enjoyable experience

The food and service were as good as I have ever had anywhere. It was a special wine pairing dinner. The Chateaubriand was amazing with a creamy polenta, the stone fruit salad was excellent, and the flourless chocolate cake was the perfect ending. Each of the three paired wines were thoughtfully selected and complemented the particular course. Unbelievable value, chef John is the real deal!

We went for the Sunday Supper. We used to go for the Sunday Supper a year or so ago but felt the entry was hit and miss, sometimes good and sometimes terrible. This last Sunday, it was terrible. We had a colette steak which turned out to mean that it was a thin, small piece of steak that had béarnaise sauce (cold) on it. It was served with French fries which were too salty and cold and the steak was not worth the calories. I had the soup which was delicious and my husband had a pizza which is alway very good. Therefore, I gave it a moderate review. We enjoy going there but wish the food, especially the Sunday Suppers, were prepared better. You just never know. It's a gamble. Someone seated near us had some health issue and the paramedics had to come, so that was quite the scene also. Hope she was okay.

We haven't been back to Adelina's for dinner for several months. The menu had changed and there was more variety. I had the Chicken Picata and my husband had the Citrus Salmon. WE started off with a Garden Greens Salad and a Tuscan Salad. The Garden Green Salad is always excellent and has a sweet agave vinegarette. The Tuscan has balsamic vinegar with pickled red union on top and it is more tart. Both fresh and delicious. Both entree's were excellently prepared and delicious. The salmon was fresh and had no fishy taste. We were very pleased.
