***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.

We were looking forward to trying this restaurant for SRW and we’re greeted with excellent fine dining service and table side manner.

Unfortunately the food was just not of the same quality. Although we ordered the vegetarian eggplant, we were served a meat entree. Which was nothing other than half an eggplant covered in unflavored ground beef.

The linguine I received was cold and the seafood was chewy. The portions were small and not filling for the price.

I’m not sure if the quality took a hit because of the number of people in the restaurant but all in all we were incredibly disappointed.

Had a wonderful dinner here. The food was fantastic! The place has kind of a hole-in-the-wall aesthetic so not impressed in that department but if that’s what keeps costs down, I’m good with it (I thought the prices were reasonable in comparison). Our polite server was also the host & bartender but managed all roles well. We will be back! PS: The lobster bisque was some of the best we’ve had. I got the lentil soup (also good) but next time I will definitely get a bowl of bisque all to myself.

The tenderloin filet was amazing, among the best I have ever had. Service very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is simple elegance. Quite a find in this part of town! I can’t wait to go back and try out the Turkish dishes. I was in a steak mood the night I visited and they delivered a really delicious plate!

It was our first Covid vaccinated group dinner. Food and service were excellent. Great to have a wonderful birthday dinner in person and not on Zoom like last year! Chef offered complimentary desserts and came out to greet the table. A great time was had by all.

The ambience and the food were amazing! The service was not that great - we had a party of 2 arrive way later than us but they received quicker service in my opinion.

The restaurant was busy so may be that’s why the wait. Other than the wait time, we had a great experience! We also appreciate the chef coming in and checking on us :)

I'm a Turkish person living in the Seattle, and this is some of the most authentic Turkish food I've had here. Prices were reasonable, the decor of the restaurant was classy, and the server was friendly. We ordered the muhamarra and the carpaccio for appetizer. The carpaccio was a bit too thick but tasted great (just needed a bit more salt), and the muhammara was amazing. I had the Turkish Manti and my partner had the Sac Kavurma, and both were super tasty. Definitely recommend it!

Went with a group, none of whom knew anything about Turkish food, but our waiter steered us in the right direction and his recommendations were spot on. We shared apps - carpaccio was by far the fan favorite. Beet salad was also a hit. The best from the main course: some kind of dumpling ravioli, in addition to the eggplant and ground beef. My daughter also had the seafood pasta dish and she enjoyed it a lot. Chef came out to say hi at the end of the meal, which was a welcome, personable touch. Overall, it was a lovely experience and evening out trying something new.

Dishes were delicious and beautifully presented. Owner was also our waiter and is very charming and fun. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone. I had the scallops and my girlfriend had the trout. Both was great and large portions. We also shared the wine recommended to us, Galo Evresge. It’s Turkish and I would also recommend it.
