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!

We enjoy going to Adelinas however some of the same problems seem to continue; food takes a long time to be served and it is often just barely warm. Service is good; friendly and caring, however, it cannot make up for the mediocre kitchen. Dinner on Sunday was barely acceptable. Beef was tough and had lots of fat. Sauce was tasty.

Very serene and relaxing restaurant right on the golf course. Very young staff but really trying to do an outstanding job. Great martini. Food was very good but my shrimp scampi pasta wasn’t as flavorful as I would have liked. Will definitely be back again and will probably try their steak.

We went here for dinner the other night with friends. We were seated near the window which is one of our favorite spots in the restaurant. My husband had the steak with bearnaise sauce and it was good. I went back to my usual hamburger and it was good as always but needed more of the fried onions.

No where on the website or open table review was it clear this was a restaurant inside a country club! That being said, the food and service were quite nice. Once we overcame our shock at the location, we enjoyed our meal. The service was excellent - heartfelt and friendly. If you happen to be in this area, it is worth a try. The outstanding feature was the pizza -- made by hand and it tasted that way.

We came for the live music tonight, Natalie Haskins. She was very good. I got the new pork chop with the huckleberry compote, it was phenomenal. My friend got fish and chips. He said the large pieces of cod were fried to perfection as were the fries. The Asian style cole slaw that came with it was also very good. We finished with the grilled brie with fig chutney and crostini. It was amazing. We will definitely be back for that. Our server, Lukas,was also excellent, very attentive.

The atmosphere is always nice at Adelina's, and the food is typically very good. Very briefly, we had: Fish-extremely fishy tasting; Prime Flat Iron Steak-cooked rare (by request) still a little tough, but good flavor; Rib Eye Steak-Very flavorful, but half of it was gristle and not consumable. The appetizer was the best: Baked Brie with Fig Jam, Roasted Garlic and Crustini.

The service was excellent, as usual. We will be back, but not in a hurry...

our dinners are always very good; however, one week I had the Ahi Tuna Salad and the following week it was totally rare. I should have asked to take it back but didn't want to create a scene with our friends. Although, they all agreed that it was definitely too rare.

What's wrong with this place? Actually, the question should be - What's RIGHT about Adelina's? Because the answer is: NOTHING! We arrived a bit early last Tuesday for the "Date Night" special (2 entrees and 2 glasses of wine for $50) for a 6:30 reservation, and were told - after being seated - that they were already OUT of the special! How can that happen? Well part of the reason is that the "famous" chef is not there after about 4:30pm every day. The sous chef is a great guy, but I believe the head chef is in charge of ordering supplies, etc. They were also out of other standard ingredients, e.g. anchovies for a salad.
On a previous occasion we ordered a couple of things "to go" including the vegetarian burger and one of the "new" salads. When we opened the burger box it was completely devoid of condiments: no lettuce, onions, pickle, tomato, mayo, mustard, ketchup, etc. - nothing! I guess we were lucky that it even came on a bun! The salad was just barely acceptable with about 8 leaves of romaine. When we asked about the lack of condiments on the burger, we were told that as they are served on a plate inside the restaurant, they put the condiments on the side of the plate; but that with a "to go" order there is no room in the box for the extras! Come on! That is SO dumb!

Are waitress name was Brittany and she was very attentive. All the wait staff and managers and maybe even the chef were very friendly and we were pleasantly surprised. We had the prime rib special and it was good and very reasonable. I had two of the trader Vic Mai Tais and wish I could I had more ha ha. They have a lot of specials going on during the week and if you live nearby I highly recommend.

We have been to Adelina's many times. Their food is consistently good and a good value. On Tuesdays they have a date night special which is pre-fix, including 2 glasses of wine, for $50 (that is for 2 people). Really great deal and good food.
