Brittany was our server and she was awesome. The food was excellent. Marco, Jett, and Noe were also great. I can’t say enough about quality of the food and the people who work there.

One of our favorite spots. Great ambiance, delicious food, attentive service, and amazing drinks. The venue is large with the tables well spread out, perfect for a quiet romantic date night. The butter cake dessert is absolutely divine.

We had the Friday fish special Tuna Nicoise, which was absolutely outstanding. The wait staff is working very hard to please and the service was excellent. Friendly and helpful staff make it a pleasure to dine there.
The only reason for the four stars is the atrium seating. With Covid there really is no other option at this time. But if you go, dress in layers or wear warm clothing. After the sun goes down it is cool even with the indoor heaters.

Right now it is recommended to make reservations. At the moment there is no indoor dining, so bundle up. Although the patio is covered and closed in on 3 sides their is still a bit of breeze coming in. They do have patio heaters to help but if you are close to the golf course, it's rather chilly.

The menu has several different selections and you can blow which is nice. They do have good cocktails too.

Service was fairly attentive but food could have been a bit warmer. I suspect the distance from the kitchen to the tables is rather far so covers may be needed to maintain temps,

The quality is good and the decor is on point. Finally, prices weren't too bad compared to comparable restaurants.

If you don't live in the Trilogy community, it can seem like you are heading to the middle of nowhere to eat at night, but it's really a nice place. I would encourage folks to try it once indoor dining is permitted or when it warms up a bit.

In the words of Arnold.... I'll be back!!

Out of the way location, but nice venue. Would have appreciated knowing it was in the Monarch Club since the signage for the Bistro was lacking. Service was friendly, but somewhat forgetful.

Outdoor eating only because of COVID, and that may be partially responsible for the food being warm, but not hot. Meatballs and sauce were tasty, but not thoroughly heated in the middle and I would have preferred the pizza being warmer. Also, the pizza crust was not crisp. It was cooked to black at the edges, but was soft and doughy. I almost thought it might have been microwaved, a no-no for pizza, in my opinion. The wine selections by the glass were very limited and so-so.

Still, I would like to go back after COVID and during the day. The building was beautiful and I got the feeling the views would have been nice.

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.

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.
