Located within the iconic Metropolitan at The 9, Adega is at the helm of Cleveland’s dining and wine vault options. The restaurant pays homage to the essence of the great restaurants of the 21st century in Cleveland, where delicious, exceptionally well-prepared food is served in settings that were simultaneously elegant, comfortable, and unpretentious. The food nods to Cleveland's culture but also lends its culinary cues from the great talents and techniques of the present and of the future. Familiar dishes like Bone-in Filet, Handmade Pastas, Seared Scallops and our Brick Oven Chicken are all elevated to a new level.

    It was just okay for the price. The wait staff was nice but not as attentive as we'd expect- water bottle on table vs staff to refill waters was weird. My wine glass was dirty and my husband's dish had burnt garlic and had to be remade. The head chef remade his meal and my husband said it was great after that. Food was good but didn't wow me like I had hoped. The backlighting on their stone wall art had burnt out lights and there were spiderwebs on their cool chandelier. They gave us complementary desserts to make up for the burnt garlic so that was very nice but overall I just wasn't blown away.

    Food was outstanding - enjoyed the polenta appetizer, the salmon entree and the chicken parm - all excellent. We had several issues with service, which was a bit disappointing given the price point. It was our first time there and we’d definitely give it a second try because the food was just incredible.

    The restaurant is beautiful; however, with all the hard surfaces, it is loud. Service was good, but not great. Prices are a little high for what you receive. The wine prices are ridiculously high!! Food, in general, was good. Had a great salad - Sweet Basil salad.. We both had pasta - Seared Scallops Bucatini and Garganelli Bolognese- which were both ver good. Bread for the table was average - 3 pieces of a baguette for two people - really?! Not with going back.

    Service was very slow. We arrived a few minutes after 5 with plans to attend the Broadway Buzz at 6:30. We didn't get the appetizer until 6pm. It was not busy at that time so the food should have been out faster. We missed seeing the Broadway buzz as we did not get done eating until 7pm...

    We ordered a bottle of wine, filet mignon, and braised short ribs. The filet mignon was amazing! The short ribs were a little dry but the truffle polenta was great. Wine was overpriced but went really well with the food. Service was great as well the ambience.

    We had a fantastic experience at Adega. The restaurant was a little emptier than normal, but we had a great time. The food was incredible — from the bread & charcuterie board to the sides to the tomahawk steak. I wish I could have eaten more, though my stomach wouldn’t allow us. Our server, Joey, was also phenomenal. He made great recommendations, and was super responsive if we needed anything. He also brought us a glass of champagne which was a great close to the evening. I would 100% recommend this restaurant and plan to come eat here again.

    I have looked forward to trying Adega for a long time but was disappointed when we actually had the opportunity to dine there. Our server was very nice and pleasant however, the service was extremely slow. Our drinks, when they finally came, were sent to the wrong table. Then someone else's food order was delivered to our table. It took a long time for our server to come back to take our food order. The charcuterie board was tasty. However, the pasta dishes (one was with scallops and one was with shrimp) were both very runny. The dishes looked like a soupy broth with noodles. We were never offered dessert but the table behind us was. We were celebrating my husband's birthday (which I did include with the reservation request) so it would have been nice to at least been offered dessert. I thought this was more of an upscale restaurant based on the drink/food prices and the various reviews. However, the service provided was disappointing and not on par with what we expected. We probably will not return.

    We went for our first wedding anniversary. This was started in our reservation but never brought up once by our hostess or server. Our server was very quiet and not very personable He only took our order and brought our food and check. Was expecting more of a "classy" restaurant experience although this was our first visit but we've walked by Adega dozens of times so we were definitely expecting more. Our food was pretty good though. Was just hoping for a better vibe and experience for the money and reputation of this establishment.

    Adega has gone down hill. Nothing on the menu is like it used to be! Steaks were significantly over cooked, drinks were mostly juice, the Bolognese wasn't even a red color, the scallop pasta was mostly olives, the salmon portion was small, and the service was bad! Very disappointing as it used to be one of our favorite restaurants.

    Had to wait 30 minutes for a cocktail. Then ordered an app. Then places out dinner order. 30 minutes later the app never arrived, so I went to the host to ask for our waitress. As soon as they saw me head over there, all of a sudden out dinners arrive, burnt. Still no app. I told the manager that the food is burnt, we never received our appetizer, the drinks took 30 minutes, and we are leaving. He was very passive aggressive but offered to box up our dinners. We left and did not pay for our meal but will not be going back. The food was mediocre and over priced.
