Oh my - Adelina's was worse than ever! I realize that the Bistro has a new group of wait-staff, but they need a training manual ASAP! It appeared that a training session/meeting was going on as we were served; but it still did NOT help.
I arrived for "Taco Night" last Thursday, and started off with a very WEAK, way too SWEET Margarita, and moved on to the tacos. The "Ahi" tuna tacos were very dry and over-cooked with a teeny-tiny dab of a sauce. When I asked for more salsa, a small amount was offered, and then I was told that the kitchen was short of sauce, and couldn't offer more! There were MAYBE 5-tables of diners total at 6:30! Why wasn't the kitchen prepared for the Taco Night "onslaught"? The whole set-up seemed strange - where was "Chef" Charles?
OMG, this was the worst meal we had via recommendation from OpenTable. We went to the Mars Insight Launch and stayed in Santa Maria and decided to go to dinner with friends not too far from our hotel.
My husband ordered the swordfish, it is not fresh served with linguine in a sea of can tomatoes sauce. I ordered the artichoke pasta with roasted tomatoes and parsley pestos. It came out with no flakes of green. The artichoke tasted like it came out from a cane (that sour taste and mushy), the pasta was stocked together. I guess the cook did not even bother to toss the pasta in the sauce.
The only one thing went right in this meal was the Twoney Pinot noir bottle from wine list which was not offered to us at the beginning, that we order after tasting three undrinkable wines from the dinner menu.
This restaurants in a Trilogy fancy/golf club. I should have known. But I was relied on open table rating. Our bill was $300 for a mediocre meal. The service was good.
Just don’t go here people.
My husband said his pork chop was the BEST he has ever had. Cooked to perfection with a delicious glaze. I had the steak salad, which was very good, but too much dressing for my taste. Just ask for dressing on the side or ask for it to be lightly dressed. Great margaritas!
Good neighborhood restaurant for lunch or dinner, very consistent on food and service.
Every time we go we are never disappointed, the chef even came to our table
We eat at Adelina's Bistro often and we always enjoy the food. I'm not sure when they added "entertainment" to the Sunday Brunch but in the opinion of our party( which included out of town guests) we would have preferred to have no music with our pleasant meal. Yesterday, 4/29/2018, the guitar soloist was way too loud. We were seated at our favorite table with a lovely view of the neighborhood and the golf course which is almost as far as we could be seated from him and still we could not hold a conservation with each other because of the loud music. We ate as quickly as we could so we could finish and get out of there. Not the way we like to entertain friends who visit us at Trilogy/Monarch Dunes.
Celebrated my wife’s birthday. The hostess greeted us by name, based on the reservation. Very attentive service by all of the staff. The live music was a nice touch for dinner. We had pizzas for our party, they’re delicious.
The service was extremely slow. There was a prom event so I’m sure that had something to do with it. However I would expect that they would bring in more help on an expected heavy evening!!
Dinner was good, but portions smaller than before and service was just ok
Good food, good service, great view of golf course from window seating.
Adelina's Bistro is located in the Trilogy development in Nipomo, CA. The facility is new within the last year or so. Very nice clean look and feel. Not a Huge menu but the choices run from salads to sliders and other starters on up to sandwiches, and even pizzas, light dinners and more. They usually have a special. Their wine menu list is certainly or you can pay a "corkage" fee and take in your own. They also have a full bar. Service is very good and you are not rushed. It is also a good idea to make a reservation before you go there--there are times when they get busy. The atmosphere is very "lay-back." You don't have to spend a lot of money for an enjoyable lunch or dinner. I have been there several times and will definitely be back.
Great food and service
Great golf course view, indoor/outdoor fireplace with comfy seating. Everyone had something different to eat, but it was all really good. They are know for the Monarch Burger, but I love the turkey burger with ailoi dressing.
Came in tonight and had an amazing pork chop. The guy at the table next to me had ordered one of their signature Barrel Aged Cadillac Margaritas. He yelled at his server and said " it was unacceptable, and the worst drink he had ever had" well naturally that piqued my interest, so I ordered one. That man was so wrong. It was one if the best margaritas I've ever had. My table ended up ordering 5 amongst all of us and we all agreed it was fantastic. Definitely will be ordering this again!!
Excellent as usual. The view is mainly why we go there, but the food is always very good. We really enjoy the live music with Sunday brunch.
Food was excellent, service very attentive but slow to get meals . They were not busy at all, only six tables were full and we were there for nearly two hours. there was only three people in our party.
Took a while to get a drink at our table. Prime rib was large, but cold. Been there before and it was fine. Order the pizza, it was great.
Came for the live music during Sunday Brunch. The entertainment was very good, and the Chicken Fried Steak and the Warm Pear Tart were definitely worth coming back for
The Scallops were phenomenal. The Barrel Aged Mango-Passionfruit Sidecar cocktail was delicious
Outstanding selection of tequilas and whisky in the bar. My pork chop was thick and succulent. My dining companions raved about their steak selections. Thin crust brick oven pizzas easily serve two. I ask for my pizza to be "extra crispy" and they do an excellent job.
It was just okay. Mixed drinks were sent back as they were akin to paint thinner. Dined here many times. Just wasn’t a great night.
This was our second time at adelinas. First time there we had a great meal with excellent service. Second visit this Saturday was completely opposite. The service was terrible . Drinks were very slow coming to the table, meals were slow as well and the food was cold and in one case not what was ordered. Hope this was just an off night as we have a home in trilogy and would like to take advantage of the location of this restaurant in the community. We were very disappointed .
We always enjoy our meals at Adelina's! Beautiful room and excellent service! Michael was our server this time and he was a delight.
Food was decent and the prices were really good for the food that was served
We had friends down from the SF Bay area and took them to Adelina’s. Friday night was fish night, and the special was blackened catfish. We all ordered it, and the entire consensus was that the fish was fantastic! Service was perfect, and the overall experience could not have been better.
Adelina's has excellent food in a relaxing and attractive setting. The service is normally good and there are sufficient choices. I have eaten here on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed with either food or service. I particularly enjoy the chicken and steak. The salads are excellent as well as the side dishes. I recommend Adelina's for groups as well as a quiet night out for couples.
Live jazz from a foursome made up partly from local community members - nice. Friendly and effective, if not speedy, service - but that's okay, we were not in a rush and it probably showed. Food was good, not outstanding, with exception of dessert - a pear/pistachio thing with vanilla ice cream. Will definitely order that again.
As always, food and service was wonderful.
Disgusting food - very poor quality
Great place! The detox salad, add salmon is my favorite here!!
Adelina's is such a pretty venue, and well appointed, so glad that the food choices, quality, menu, and service match the venue. We enjoyed the Tuesday "Date night" menu, three courses and a glass of wine for $50.00 per couple. The standard menu is always available if you weren't in the mood for the special menu, which would probably be a smarter option if you weren't ravenous. Our servers were great, Chef came out to check on our satisfaction, made for a lovely evening.
Excellent server!!! Great dinner also. I said it all but still have type characters for review to be accepted.
Very nice place, great atmosphere, very good food, great menu--appetizers, salads, sandwiches, pizzas, and more, light meals to full-on diners, reasonable priced, excellent service. Our server was Britany. Definitely will return--great digs, great staff.
Love this place!!!
The pizza oven is awesome - the salads are good portions and tasty. Thirsty Thursdays are well worth it.
I live in Nipomo and had no idea this hidden gem was so close to me. It was my husbands birthday and i took him for his birthday dinner the food was the best I have had the central coast. Truly amazing!!!!!
Our waiter Christy was awesome. We spilled a glass of water right when we got there, he cleaned it up...fast. Great service all night!!
The food is good here but the service continues to be a weakness. Beautiful building and location.
Although $21 for a prime rib dinner seems like a bargain, I would gladly pay up to $10 more for a better cut of meat. Consistency is key here.
This is a wonderful restaurant in a beautiful setting. I won’t be sampling the prime rib any time soon.
We have had many meals at Adelina's but this time we were disappointed by our meal choices. My husband had the pork chop which was greasy and I had the chicken dish which was cooked with too much butter. Both dishes didn't look as nice in presentation as we had experienced in the past. We suspect it was either the chef's night off or he/she isn't there anymore. There is a fine line between what a cook can do and an experienced chef and this time we did not feel that there was an experienced chef in the kitchen. I hope this was a one time experience because we love the ambiance and enjoy going to Adelina's.
