***OPEN FOR DINE-IN AND TAKE OUT***

A chef-driven paradise wrapped in a small neighborhood vibe. Ada’s has been a staple in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood for years. However today, the new Ada’s is a creation stemmed from a lifelong dream of Executive Chef Ayhan Barlas. With a completely revised menu of American classics prepared with a European flair alongside Chef Ayhan’s native Turkish favorites, your senses will thank you!

We are firm believers that the freshest ingredients create the best dishes, and that things that grow together, go together. So, in keeping with that mantra, we pride ourselves on using as many local purveyors as possible to best keep our dishes in line with the true spirit of the finest cuisine the Pacific Northwest has to offer.

Here you'll find a modern, warm and romantic dining experience in an elegantly casual atmosphere. We also have a great bar and lounge area with a wonderful Happy Hour.

When you dine with us, you’ll feel like part of the family.

    With its warmly lit and inviting Turkish charm I bathed myself in a dining experience that left me yearning for more. Positively giddy over the Beet and Orange salad and the Tenderloin Shishkabob cooked to perfection sealed the deal. Bravo to Chef Ayhan and his talented staff, Nurullah, Tracy and Cesar. You were just what the doctor ordered. Cheers!

    Was here for SRW and overall a good experience, I liked the ambiance and the service was very attentive. Sea Bass was great, would order again! Only issue was in the prime tenderloin medallions which we ordered as medium rare and came out well done and then rare.

    Cesar the waiter provided excellent recommending dishes and provided an amazing service . Food very good Asparagus with hazelnuts interesting and well seasoned, worth it. The Birek was delicious. Turkish Manti absolutely delicious and extremely savory. The mini “ beef dumplings” with a brown butter, paprika and yogurt offered a unique umami experience. Special of the fish extremely good with bisque sauce.

    The food was absolutely delicious and the service was gracious and attentive. I love how elegant and quiet is in the booths on the north side. We especially loved the beet salad (we kept trying to remember each of the ingredients so we could try making it ourselves at home) and the brussels sprouts. We shared every dish and with these two and a beef tenderlonin skewer we had plenty of food for both of us for an early dinner.

    It's a cute restaurant with lovely service. It was pretty speedy, but not so much that we felt rushed. They were attentive, asked how our food was, and refilled our water, etc. Overall, it was a great experience. Oh! And the food was great! There are lots of seafood options.

    We tried bunch of appetizer dishes, drinks and a couple of entrées. it was a great choice for all of us. The service and the people at Ada's were all super nice and professional. The amount of attention we got was perfect and every dish we ate was delicious. We will definitely dine at Ada's again. I highly recommend this place. Ada's is perfect for tapas style eating because their appetizer menu can't be beat.

    This was our second time at Ada's, both for birthday dinners, and we had another great meal. Around the table we had clams, sea bass, gnocchi, beef shish kabob and chicken shish kabob. All were delicious! At to that a full bar and yummy desserts and what more do you need? Go.

    Wonderful food and great service. The only tiny complaint is how dark it is. They brought a lamp to the table so we could read the menu, which to me is a sign that it’s overall too dark, or the lamps should be there all the time. We really enjoyed the food and will be back.

    Second time at Ada's, and another outstanding experience. The food is excellent, and in generous portions. They're not afraid to put a subtle, different spin on familiar dishes: the lobster bisque had a deeper, richer flavor than one usually gets, and the rice pudding dessert was delightfully custard-y.

    All 5 of us thought our chosen menu items were delicious - the Turkish dishes and the dishes similar to Italian ones. Our service was excellent with special requests (a hot Toddy-like cocktail) after our frigid evening at the Woodland Park Zoo) were gladly accommodated. We will return!

    I thought the food was very good, everything we had. Something felt odd about the ambience - the layout of the place maybe, and it's pretty dark., maybe others would find that a plus. Could be a good spot for a quiet couples night. I'd like to go back and try other things on the menu.
