No need to shout across the table to be heard. Too many of the newer restaurants in our area have forgotten that when they've designed their spaces. The food, so good that our foodie friends are impressed as well. Their specials are all that and more. As an artist, I enjoy seeing the new works on display, grateful there's such a place that gives us a nice spot to showcase the work. The service is wonderful too, all their servers friendly and great at taking care of our table. Obviously, they like working there which is always a plus. You'll not hear a negative word about this place from our family.

The steak was good but the potato was hard and really wasn't worth serving.overall I would say it was just ok but the value was very good and it will be awhile before I return.

The ambience was very nice...bright and cheery. Our server Luke was friendly, attentive and accommodating...and made for a pleasant dining experience. The food was very, very good (2 salmon wraps and the tacos). Entrees included salad on the side and even dessert was included! I am anxious to return and try other entrees.

Our first course took a long time and arrived about 4minutes before the entrees. Kale salad was fresh but needed more massaging. Entree with chicken, mozzarella, and prosciutto was very disappointing with plain sautéed chicken breast slapped on top with the other two items with no flavor and a watery sauce.

Always have had friendly and good service. Also has some vegetarian selections which is really nice.

Little noisy (what restaurant isn't) but OK. Service was pretty good - only one Chardonnay on the wines by the glass the the server wasn't real helpful about it. It turned out to get quite good though. This is a comfortable to place to go though and we'll go back.

It was a little bit noisy when we were there the last time, but it was on New Year's Ever so it was to be expected. The server helped pick out great drinks for us. Overall, the experience was great as usual.

I picked it, so I wanted to see it through. We were greeted at our table by an army of flies. Quickly decided we should all order alcohol because I had a bad feeling about the joint & figured we'd need it. I was right. The flies settled down until our food came. Understandable, because that food smelled worse than the original sh*t smell that greeted us to the restaurant 20 minutes earlier. Flies like that stuff & we were happy to feed our food to them. Server comped 100% of the food & said he'd have a talk with the cooks who had only been there 2 days. Chef Ramsey, where are you? You're desperately needed at Adams Ave. Grill!

You can actually talk to your companions and hear what they say. i had the asian salad with chicken (lunch size). Just the right size but maybe at $15 a bit overpriced. My companion had the lavendar french toast with bacon, yum! It too at $14 was a buck or two more than reasonable but overall, a perfect way to enjoy friends and conversation on a very hot afternoon.

The chicken/blue cheese wrap was truly delicious & unlike any other wrap you've had. The staff is good & accommodating. It's a very open environment, so not super romantic if that is what you seek, but is a great place for lunch or dinner.

Two (maybe 3) wine orders were missed until diners reminded server as entree arrived. Two (three?) orders (watermelon gazpacho) forgotten by server or someone preparing them. At least one guest waited for meal long after the rest of us. We all chose to wait--too long for some. Whenever served, everything was excellent. Saw no excuses: few other patrons in dining room--maybe two tables of 4 max.) All guests commented on poor service but great food. An awkward evening for me, at best.

Perhaps it's because the other breakfast joints in the area have too long of waits. Honestly, the food sounds better than it tastes. I ordered the Bacon stuffed Belgian waffles topped with grits and eggs this last time. I didn't like how all the items were stacked on one another and the Hollandaise sauce was too sour. The "cheesy grits" were cold and lumpy and the side of fruit was more of a garnish than a side. Service was up to par, but as it got busier, it became more scant. It also became very stuffy inside. Please turn up the AC!

I made reservations and they were busy, but able to seat people quickly. Nice atmosphere and clean uncluttered feel, but still warm. The staff was very helpful and attentive, but not in our faces. I ordered off of the regular menu (yankee pot roast) and my friend ordered a special (butternut squash ravioli). Both were tasty. We also tried three desserts. peanut/chocolate bar was interesting and good. I really liked the chocolate/banana dessert and my friend liked the chocolate/macadamia dessert. I would recommend this to restuarant friends.

This worked out well as we sort of mixed it up with one having breakfast and two having lunch. Great variety of selections for the hungry and the lite eaters, including some tasty sounding vegetarian dishes. We certainly will go back to sample more.

I have to say that the ginger-carrot soup is my favorite thing on the menu. So, I start there and work my way through all kinds of choices.

Our two food selections were not the best which is quite unusual. We had a wrap which was good and the chicken strips with waffle fries ... the chicken strips have no flavor or punch. Must have been an off day as the food here has always been excellent.

Had the salmon cooked on a cedar plank, and the salmon was overlooked. Corn chowder was great. Our server was great but when we were seated, they didn't have enough menus to give to us (there were only 4 of us)! Owner(?) gave us snarky comment about needing to be patient. Which restaurant doesn't have enough menus? Good atmosphere. Good restaurant for the neighborhood but since i don't live there, i probably wouldn't go back.

Breakfast and lunch are served daily and the choices are varied and delicious. There isn't an item on the menu that is disappointing and the desserts are truly yummy. Dinner is great and the prices are very reasonable. The staff is extremely accommodating, the ambience is very pleasant and welcoming. We dine out a great deal and this is one of our favorite spots.

I'd eaten there at their original location in Kensington. I wasn't sure to expect this time around. I was a little nervous because we had our baby who, luckily, is usually quite well behaved. I just didn't want to offend others . There were seven of us and the table next to us had about a dozen people including a baby as well. Everyone was kind, the babies sat next to each other and the server was very patient and kind. We were there for a couple of hours. Great menu for our gluten free family. We will be back!

We received great service from Sophia. She was very sweet while giving good suggestions when I couldn't make up my mind (which I never can). I'm glad I tried something new but I will probably have one of my favorites next time: Italy’s Proscuitto & Caprese Eggs or the Original Eggs Benedict. Their hollandaise is perfect. Both my dad and my husband had the pork enchiladas and they were fantastic. Mom had the smoked bacon & tomato soup with a half pear orange arugula salad. She loved it. Everybody loved it.

                                                                                Adams Avenue Grille is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant. Small, tucked away on a residential street, but a total gem. Very creative menu. Wonderful food and presentation. Easy to make reservations. Very friendly service. Very reasonable prices. Great desserts. No liquor, just wine and beer, which keeps it quiet. I got here often and this time was pleased to treat a guest from Texas to dinner who was totally charmed. Totally recommended.
