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 Secreto Iberico, Braised Lamb Shank, Citrus Branzino, Mushroom Ragout and our Halibut are all elevated to a new level.

What a great place! Very cool vibe. Our sever was amazing. Very knowledgeable but had personality and was fun. He definitely added to our night. The food was fantastic. We had the charred octopus appetizer and was the best I have ever had - my girlfriend had never tried it and she loved it! We had the monkfish special which was again - spot on and the Iberico steak was a first for both of us and was also amazing. A great, memorable night. Nice work Adega!

6:00 PM dinner on Wednesday and we were the only diners (2 of us) until 7:00 PM. Very attentive waiter who made up for everything else. My sea food pasta had way too much lemon juice (vs. marinara sauce) which I did not enjoy. My wife ordered Branzino fish but were told they were out of it. She ended up ordering salmon but nothing special about the dish. Very fancy restaurant with great staff but food was not very good or should I say I was expecting more. Will not return.

First time visit to Adega. The food was cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. We had the sirloin steak and branzino. Appetizer/Little Bites are large enough to share. We had the basil salad and the hummus with pita bread. Waiter and staff very friendly and attentive. Thank you for an amazing meal and dinner experience!

The server started out great then completely stopped checking in on us. I had to end up getting up and going to the front desk for the bill. The filet which was their special was over cooked and well done. The risotto it was paired with the undercooked and crunchy. Lastly the kids yelling and being obnoxious was the kicker on top. My girlfriend who I went with for our anniversary also wrote to them but they still hadn't sent not one work back.

Where do I begin! The hostess was warm and inviting! Our server William was very knowledgeable about wine pairings and menu suggestions. The Ciopinno was excellent, the hint of blood orange set it off perfectly. My husband enjoyed his ribeye. We also stopped done for brunch and was not disappointed! The Polenta and Shrimp was delicious and loved the made-to-order cinnamon roll! We definitely will be back!

Beautiful place and the service was excellent. I think the only thing were the portions that were really small for the price. Other than that our food was delicious and our father son duo who was waiting on us were excellent.

I don’t ever leave reviews. Ever. I also understand there is a lot going on in our world today so I’m very generous in giving leeway. However, there wasn’t much to brag about. The waiter had very little patience and every little thing irritated him. Getting a drink took forever and a day. I cook, I know what good food is. When I order bruschetta, I’m expecting crostini or a toasted baguette. Not a crumbled up pastry and peaches that tastes like it came out of a can. The only good thing the steak had going for it was that it was cooked good. Other than that, there’s nothing really to it. As a mom, I don’t get out much. So when I do, I really look forward to going to a nice restaurant with good food and for once not have to wait on everyone else. I’m really bummed this place met zero expectations.
