We had a fantastic restaurant week dinner. The dinner included a fall salad with apples, cranberries and pecans. This was followed by a flat iron steak with mushroom risotto. The steak was so tender you could cut it with a fork. Finally there was a pumpkin cheesecake with apple compote. We ate everything.

Of course this restaurant is well known for their service. They are professional, courteous and very attentive. Every server from the bus people (assistants is what we call them) to the wait staff and management carry the same set of ethics as described above.

Highly recommended!!!

Prime rib night-the prime rib was only available cooked Medium. When that’s your special-it’s a crime to over cook it. Medium rare prime rib can always be made med - well done for those who want that. I did not. Caesar salad was good although next time will request easy dressing. Anchovy filets on the salad were a Nice touchThe salmon was good, the hangar steak was properly prepared medium rare, but over sauced. The truffle fries were great. Pumpkin cheesecake lacked pumpkin flavor. Our server was pleasant, he made a few mistakes but apologized and discounted our check.

Finally they got a meal right. Service was great, too bad there is no management around the servers do everything! Also hear there is a chef but no where to be seen.

Menu is a little more limited than in normal times (due to Covid), but not hard to find something you will love. Service is always exceptional!

In this strange world of COVID, Adelina's has done a very good job of implementing safety protocols that include the use of masks and social distancing. My wife and I have been eating there regularly throughout the pandemic, both indoors and outside in the atrium, and we have felt comfortable everywhere. The food and the service have been uniformly excellent.

We ate in the atrium, which is a lovely, well designed setting. Our server, Ciana, is always attentive and friendly, as well as a superb wait staff. The manager, Noe, can be counted on to greet and welcome and tend to any wish. The sea bass was a melt in your mouth, tastebud humming experience (remember when young children hummed because food tasted so good?)! The Napoleons finished off the gastronomic experience to a T. We’ve had many fine meals here but this one was notable.

Love the new Atrium outdoor dining. Was very sorry to see that my favorite item, the Buffalo Chicken Sakad, was no longer on the menu. But Mikey gave me a good recommendation on the new Rocketbird Sandwich. Definitely nowhere near as good as the Buffalo Salad, but a decent sandwich.

I took my cousin for her birthday. She is new to town and I knew she wouldn’t discover this wonderful hidden gem on her own. We were seated quickly. Service was a bit slow but I hear they are looking for a chef and there was only one server. All was good though. Friendly, informational and treated us with kindness and respect.

The food was awesome. The service we received from Marco, Jett, Cristi and Noe was top notch. They’re always friendly, helpful and kind. In a world that’s a little crazy right now, their superior service was very comforting. We frequent this establishment usually one or two times a week and our experience is always above and beyond. Awesome night as always.

Once again Adelina's delivers. The new menu is paired down from before but has plenty for everyone. Jonathan, the bar manager, has one of the best Bloody Mary mix recipes I've ever tasted.. perfect amount of heat and delicious flavors. Our server, Marco, was knowledgeable and attentive. They've opened up their atrium for al fresco dining and put the heaters and fireplace on to keep it warm. Love how "on it" they are with all of the new distancing and cleaning requirements due to COVID-19 and their new dining room layout makes for a more intimate experience even with the tables spread out.

Adelina's is a very relaxing environment for a meal. The high ceilings and many windows have a lot to do with it. The staff are always friendly and professional. It's never stuffy or formal. The food is excellent. And they have great drinks and an extensive wine selection. We really enjoy eating there, even during these social distancing times.

Definitely grateful that they have reopened to the public. One of our favorite places. The Calamari fries are delicious, the new Roasted Beets Salad was amazing, and the new version of the Roasted Chicken was superb. Service was outstanding as always, and the new setup of the dining room is lovely, and now truly makes it feel like an exclusive upscale restaurant.

We had a 5:30 reservation and were seated promptly. We were given water and bread right away and our waiter was quick to serve us. The soup was hot and tasty, the food was excellent and more then enough. We both had left overs to take home. It was a very pleasant experience.
