Broccoli was bitter and not eatable. Our favorite dinner salad was missing the candied pecans. Other than that, we thought it was very good.

We enjoyed our Valentine's Dinner at Adelina's. The prix fixe price was comparable to other fine restaurants in the area, was four courses, they had a harp player and excellent selection of wines. Will definitely consider going here again next year (as well as other regular dinners).

Beautiful room, good food, super service. Our server was Marco for both nights and he was friendly and professional. The chef circulated among the tables greeting diners and checking on the food. Nice music on the second night. Will go back often.

Had the scallop "special" which was way over priced, and over rated!
$28 for 3 over chard scallops, 3 hard as rock carrots, couldn't even cut the purple one, and a drop of tasteless risotto with Parmesan. A sauce would of been nice . Plain , dry, over cooked for $28!!!! How about a salad for that price too. Very pricey, for what we received .

We always enjoy meals at Adelina's Bistro because the food is reliably high in quality, the service is excellent, people are having a good time and the ambiance is comfortable. We usually try for Wednesday Date Night, Friday Beef, and Sunday Supper when the fixed menu is just right and the value is great.

generally a solid choice for dinner. occasionally can be too busy so service lacks. good specials, wine and bar offerings good. it's a smaller, cozier place to enjoy a relaxed dinner without crowds

Since open table they are over booked and they bring out “card tables” for overflow. They are usually on there game with service, but this night was terrible. I felt it was awkward from the people who
Lost there reservation in a private room for their birthday party . Double booked? I didn’t see management either, keeping it running smooth. Food was excellent, we will try again.

We had a reservation for 3 at 7 pm. We were seated at an uneven (rocking), dilapidated card table almost in the aisle, not really even in the restaurant. Our waitress didn’t show up or greet us for 10 minutes, the chef brought out our food and we were generally ignored. When we finally asked the waitress for an explanation, she said there was an error in Open Table and it booked more reservations than they could handle. In other words, they didn’t have capacity for us, so they planted us in the aisle, like we weren’t even there. Food was good as usual, but we would have preferred the hostess said something like “we had a problem with your reservation, you’re welcome to sit at the bar or wait for a real table”. We are members here and won’t be back.

Adelina's is always a stumper. Our waiter, Michael, was VERY good, so no problems there; but the food continues to be "so-so" at best. My fish and chips was two over-cooked fillets, that looked to be straight from the frozen-food bin, and the kitchen is still serving the giant "steak fries" that are mushy, even when I requested them to be "extra crispy". Other restaurants can manage a good shoestring french fry, but Adalina's can't even pull off the big fat fries. Oh well. The daily soup was also pretty blah. Until Adelina's gets a really innovative chef to make some changes, this will be the best that we can expect, i.e. not much.

We went for my birthday because I received a discount card from the restaurant. Our previous experiences have not been great but this time, the service was very good, so kudos for that major improvement.
I had butternut squash soup and a margherita pizza. The soup was fine, just not great or interesting. It needed a little more body and seasoning. The pizzas here have very thin, almost cracker crusts. Not very Italian but that's OK. They don't use good mozzarella and it's mixed with something else, maybe a mild cheddar. My husband had fish and chips which he liked. Because it was my birthday, I was offered ice cream or sorbet for dessert. I had peach sorbet which was served in a peach which was frozen solid. I couldn't taste the peach in the sorbet, gave it to my husband, who was again liking it. The thing is, there are very few restaurants nearby, so we would like to dine here more often. Unfortunately, it never meets our expectations which, for Adelina's are not high.

What a difference a day makes!
Last few times the food and service was far from ok.
This time, we had the private room, an attentive waiter who was prompt and efficient (kudus to Marco) and deliciously prepared food (Seabass, Chicken Marsala and Pizza).
All 6 of us enjoyed our meals and really liked the privacy.

Well over all we had a really nice time , but we had an absentee server. We had to keep asking other servers who were walking by our table for things . We had a table of six and never once did we have everything we needed . Drinks, placesettings, one small basket of bread for six people and all our butter knives were covered in finger prints and dried food .. I had to flag down someone for clean ones . Our server also seemed like she had another job as she was dressed in an apron , not like the other servers who were dressed very professionally. Maybe just an off night .. We really enjoyed our food and the ambience and will try again .

We really enjoy going to Adelina's and are there 2 to 3 times per week. There is a nice variety of food, so that there is something for everyone. We especially enjoy the Friday Night Fish Specials, Saturday Night Prime Rib and love it when the Chef comes out to hear from the patrons, how they liked their meal. It is a wonderful place to take guests who are visiting and you can even watch your favorite sporting event if you want to. The young staff is very professional and attentive, but also respectful. The atmosphere casual, but lovely and very relaxing. If you haven't tried Adelina's in a while, we highly recommend that you do and we promise to say "Hi" if we see you there!
