The food is always amazing! The lounge has a tv that has sports on, at least every time we have been. That is a huge hit with the hubby! This is a special occasion place as it is pricy. The staff is exceptional in every way. Prompt, courteous, attentive enough and extremely knowledgeable. Everything you’d expect from that type of restaurant experience. If you have pearls, this is the place to wear them but I felt completely comfortable in a nice sundress. We will be back!

Adega serves up a modern take on classic Portuguese dishes with tasty daily specials and a fine wine list. Service is professional, yet friendly. Their basement wine cellar is a cool place for a group event as is their upstairs dining area and deck. Great location on Elm Street just off Yonge.

My wife and I went there for our anniversary and it was perfect. There is plenty of good food in Banff but if you want fine dinning, go to Eden. From the moment you check in to the desert, you know you are at a very nice restaurant. My wife recently developed a food allergy and I simply cannot explain the level of effort that the staff and the chef made to accommodate. You felt as if you were the only people in the room and the staff was plesantly friendly and warm. We ended up laughing and staying much later than expected due to the wonderful staff. I would absolutely go back in the future and I highly recommend the food, staff and overall experience.

Maybe, I misunderstood, and I thought that my dessert would be compted on the bill. It was not. I have been to other restaurants where the dessert is taken off the bill.
