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.

    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.

    I’ve heard great things about this place and it’s been on my list for awhile. I got invited to a last minute show at Playhouse so I suggested we try Adega. I’ll start by saying this place is pricier and you’re paying an average of $30-35+ for a basic pasta dish. To me, I’d consider that at least a bit more upscale dining… which means the service should be great. For starters, after we ordered a drink our server disappeared for at least ten minutes. He’d walk right by us and just say nothing. Finally after at least 15 minutes he took our order. Reservation was at 6:30 and the show was at 8. It’s only a few minutes away so I think that’s ample time to eat and drive over. We ordered at maybe 6:45 ish? It was 7:30…almost an HOUR and we didn’t have our food. Also, it was a Monday, not even a busy Saturday evening. We ordered a pizza and a charcuterie board, that’s it. Mind you, a charcuterie board is also an appetizer, so that should have been brought out sooner. The worst part about it is in this almost hour of waiting, our waiter said nothing. He didn’t say “the food is coming” or “sorry about the wait…” I mean nothing, walked by as if we didn’t exist. Finally I couldn’t track down the waiter so I had to ask a host where our food was and said we had to leave in 10 minutes so just comp the bill. Suddenly our food appeared after I said something and we had to literally inhale the food. I told our waiter we had a show so he said he’d grab the check right away. Even that took longer than it should have. I rarely leave reviews and I hate being “that person” but this was just unreal and embarrassing after I spoke highly of it to my friends. I read reviews which were so promising so I’m disappointed this happened. Whether they were understaffed or it was an off night, having a waiter that checks up on you should still be the bare minimum and I don’t think is an unreasonable request.

    Been there one for breakfast and once for dinner in last month, after a few poor experiences right after covid. Keep giving the new chefs a chance but they keep disappointing. Too bad because it’s a nice location but can’t bear being continually disappointed.

    Had some out of town guests with me who were staying at a nearby hotel. The restaurant did not disappoint. The menu (just changed which they do periodically) was fantastic. Pasta dishes were fresh, fish choices wonderful, a number of steak and chop options, and the waiter was friendly, engaging, and attentive. Another great experience.

    Polenta Benedict was fabulous. They had a ciabatta French toast with a lemon honey mascarpone and blackberries last summer that was fabulous. The one that was served today was not as good. I wish restaurants when I found something really good would not change the menu so often. I went there craving that delicious French toast from last summer.

    Brunch menu was small, but had something for everyone. Atmosphere was nice, upscale traveler. Service was attentive and exceptional. Water and coffee were replenished frequently. Server checked with us 3 times during meal. A good value for a restaurant in an upscale hotel in a downtown business / tourist area.
