    New menu with many options. The Brussels sprouts appetizer were outstanding as were the ribs. My guests had the pork chops and chicken medallions and both were happy with their selections. Leah was our server and was friendly and very capable. The room is beautiful, the noise is minimal, and the bar selections extensive. We will definitely be back, probably frequently.

    Entree's were great....3 of us....had the chicken, salmon and spaghetti and meatballs. Chicken was the highlight. Cesar salad not as good as it used to be....dressing was more bland....needs more flavor! Only criticism of decor is it is so bright in there! Super high ceilings with bright light so no atmosphere at all to make it truly a fine dining restaurant. Wish that would change but at least the food was really good and came out nice and hot!

    This was our third dining experience at Adelina’s in the last three weeks. All have been wonderful. There were four of us — two ordered the salmon salad, one had the BBQ ribs, and I had the pork chops. We all said we would order the same thing again. So that says something, right?! Our server, Jasmine, was terrific. Very attentive, polite, and all the great traits you’d want in your waitress. The only (minor) thing that could have made it even better — there was a cold draft every time someone opened the front door (you know, the ones large enough for a medium-sized castle). Our table was pretty close to the hallway, near the foyer. Again, minor…. We will be back.

    We’ve eaten at Adelinas’s many times but this was the fastest service we have ever had, the food was great, I love the Caesar salad! They are starting a new menu next week, I can’t wait to check it out, we won’t go on the weekend since the last time we did it was very slow service and they ran out of all the specials, we’ll give it a try soon again!

    The three of us had a great dining experience at Adelina's. It was our first visit, and based on our experience, we will definitely be back. The three main dishes we had - a rigatoni/sausage dish, a salmon dinner, and another fish special -- were all well-prepared and seasoned, served hot and timely, and with a nice presentation. My wife said it was one of the best salmon dishes she's ever had. The servers were wonderful. Friendly, knowledgeable, and frequently checked on us. Noise level was just right. We were seated near the windows, so we were off the beaten path (beaten path is closer to the bar area). Thank you to the manager for seating us in such a nice spot. Overall a great time. Thank you.

    The best restaurant in Nipomo. Best ambiance in all of SLO county. We had the poke, meatballs, lemon chicken and hamburger. All were very good. Despite asking for a "lightly dressed" caesar salad it came with too much dressing. Our server was very attentive.

    It was music night so the noise level was higher than normal for the first 30 minutes. Service was excellent, my chicken and mushroom dish was delicious. My wife's Pork chops were slightly overcooked and a little on the dry side. Overall a very nice dinner.

    Third or fourth time here and the food is not where it should be for fine dining. Needs more simple dishes and not try to be a fine dining restaurant. The soups and salads are good but the main dishes are very lacking.

    Waitress needs more training. She spilled our expensive bottle of wine while pouring, asked if I needed another plate for our shared salad after I already waited and just used my bread plate, and then when entrees arrived we received the wrong thing. It wrecked the experience.

    My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Adelina's last night. I started with the clam chowder, which was full of clams and a yummy bacon accent followed by the Char Salmon, cooked to perfection. The sauteed spinach and pumpkin accompaniments were just right. We finished are meal with the tiramisu and it was the best version I've had in a while from various restaurants. We will be returning soon to Adelina's and look forward to the updates that they will be making to the menu!

    Ambiance is very nice. Service has improved. There was a new menu (again). The pasta dishes sounded nice, but we did not order them as we had pasta the night before. Hubby ordered the “cilantro lime” chicken. It was cooked very nicely and was juicy and moist. However there was no cilantro lime flavor. They are trying to get there with new chefs and menu.

    Slow service lacking basic understanding of cleaning off glass tabletops between courses, replacing utensils that were cleared away. Strange server arrangement where the server does practically nothing but take your order and if you’re lucky brings the bill at the end. When we caught him and asked for the table to be cleaned off - he said he would get the busboy to do it, but it didn’t get done till we asked again. Food took forever to come out. Better food than in June. We try to support as we live in Trilogy but we don’t see much improvement in management.

    We arrived on the night of a new menu and everything our table tried was superb--salmon, steak and pasta dishes. Also a new Heritage tomato and beet salad was a grand starter. Thursday night no corkage so also a bonus. Adelina's is within the club house of Trilogy Monarch Dunes, but open to the public as well--Wed to Sun.

    Isaiah was our server and he served us in the past. Excellent, attentive an explained the specials. Of course my husband and I both had the prime rib, potatoes and green beans. I usually very eat all y food and bring home leftovers. Not this time, I ate everything. II had a Gin and Tonic and a glass of Merlot. My husband had Bombay Sapphire on the rocks both good. Declined desert as we were both too full. Also, good bread and butter.

    This is a bistro, more for drinks and appetizers, or burgers and pizza. I was expecting a fine dining experience which it was not. We had our starter plates, when our main course was delivered. Then our dessert came out with all our plates on the table. The food was good. There was a special Sunday dinner with salad or soup, main course and dessert. It was a nice dinner but the service was just okay.

    We ordered the special steak pizzaiola (sirloin). It tasted good but was not steak pizzaiola in the Italian sense. We make both Neapolitan and Sicilian steak pizzaiola. Although each is different, both do not include mozzarella cheese and capers. Traditionally, a strip, t-bone, porterhouse or ribeye is used in lieu of the sirloin. Additionally, we ordered their Spumoni Bomba (actually called Tartufo in Italy). However, it was not available. Past Thursday special dinners have been exceptional such as seared boneless duck breast in a cherry wine reduction; Grilled Veal chop; Seabass. Adelina's, please don't "buck" your positive trend. Stay the course.

    We live in the development where Adelina's is located. It used to be a great restaurant in 2019. When they reopened it in 2021 we were excited and then severely disappointed. It has been going down hill since. 'When the new management company took over we had hope. However, a year later things have gotten even worse. We have given Adelina's several chances with the change of chefs and nothing has improved. In fact it has gotten worse. I have approached management several times regarding the concerns. We just keep receiving excuses and nothing happens. On our latest experience, August 28 we did not see our server for over 1 1/2 hours after we ordered. The appetizer, salad, took over 30 minutes to come out and we had to rescue it from another table. The main dish, salisbury steak, came out over 30 minutes after the salads. The food was cold. The meat was tough, flavorless and overdone. I could get a tv dinner that tasted better. The portions were very small. The potatoes were obviously scooped from a small icecream scoop. The meat was 2 inches by 3 inches by 1/2 inch thick. Fortunately it was smothered in gravy so you could choke it down. This was after I personally had to take it back the first time to the kitchen (I couldn't find the server). The server finally came back when she wanted us to pay the check, but we never received the dessert. We asked to speak to the manager but she never came. The excuses here are we are understaffed. They had 2 servers, 2 managers, 1 bus person, 2 bartenders, and at least 2 people who bring the food to your table. You would think this would be enough. However, the manager stood by the bar giving orders and looking lost. Then she disappeared and wasn't seen again in the almost 2 hours we were there. I would not recommend that anyone waste their money here. There are many other restaurants who want your business and will go out of their way to make sure you are happy.
