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.

Totally disorganized and understaffed. Manager was inappropriate to the hostess in front of customers.

Service needs help. Atmosphere is good, but staff doesn’t match in quality, demeanor, or appearance the price of the place.

Nice restaurant attached to the Nine. We had a good dinner. I would love to say great like when we used to frequent pre covid. Menu options for the main course is very limited. The food itself was good and came out quick so compliments to the chef on that. If you have time before or after dinner I suggest checking out Ledger Bar on the second floor. The bartender makes some amazing drinks.

The service was outstanding. Ambiance is great. My soup was delicious, my salad was okay, and my pasta was average. For the price it wasn't worth it. I ordered desert, and the cake was beautifully plated but very dry. I'm rather certain it was a stale nothing by bunt cake. It definitely wasn't made that day, and like I said pretty sure it wasn't made at that restaurant. For the money it was a very poor value.

My husband and I enjoyed Adega. The restaurant is across from the Kimpton Schofield where we were staying, so it was very convenient. The food and wine were very good, and the service was good. We would recommend this restaurant.

We are food snobs from South Carolina and found this gem which offers great food, service and ambience. The vault is a must see. Best yet, the restaurant is in one of the ugliest yet most historic buildings in the country

Adega is a lovely restaurant. Tasteful and trendy.

It was exceedingly short staffed the day we were their and our poor stressed out server was running herself ragged. The hostess thanked us for having reservations because so many people did not and were being rude to her. Come on people! People in the hospitality industry are under tremendous strain right now. A little empathy would go a long way.

That said, the food was pretty good. My frittata was cooked nicely but kind of blah. I was disappointed that there was no toast. I guess that's silly but I was.

The spicy bloody Mary was fantastic.

Our first visit to Adega was superb. The service was fantastic even on a very busy Saturday evening. Our waitress Janice was great. We had a few conversations with the executive chef, Jeff as we dined.
We enjoyed the sea bass special, filet, and bolognese. Each dish was beautifully prepared and delicious. They also have a great wine selection. Caymus is a favorite of ours and they even serve it by the glass, which is a rarity. We returned the next morning for breakfast. The ricotta pancakes are a must!

Ask for a booth facing the Kitchen and Bar area. It is a lot quieter and more intimate.

The scallops were melt in your mouth excellent! I love their octopus, but it was slightly over cooked. Still very tasty. The sausage and goat cheese flat bread was a little dry. It could benefit from a layer of caramelized onions. I appreciated the thin and crispy crust.

Wines by the glass were excellent. The complete wine list is very complete! It covers all varietals and producing areas.

Still one of the best places for a light Mediterranean style dinner with a glass or bottle of superb wine. We will continue to go as often as we can!

We went to Adega to celebrate our anniversary and were so surprised to get a glass of champagne at our arrival, great touch! The food was good, but not so good that I would want to come back. With so many great restaurants in Cleveland you need to be pretty exceptional.

Service was not the greatest (a friend said they had the same poor service when they went.) Two items we wanted to order off of the menu we’re not available. We were given only one little bread rolls before our meal. Entrée and dessert portions were small. Server did not refill our drinks. Took a forever to get the bill. Server kept our credit card for a long time after we paid.

Food was low quality. The brick oven chicken must be pre-cooked or out of a bag. Presentation looked like it was broiled chicken. Nothing a chef could be proud to serve guests at a nice restaurant. Would not recommend.

Disappointing experience. Limited food menu compared to what was offered in the past. As well, the wine list was a joke. The prior excellent wine list has been replaced by a one page sheet. The first two bottles I wanted were not available. I was then shown shown the list with pen markings to indicate how many of each bottle was still available.

Our waitress explained the wine room was going to be taken down to offer more seats in the dining room. Thus the reason the wine list is being slowly depleted.

I wonder then if the restaurant will close for a time while being renovated? If so, won’t go back until after renovations, if ever. What a shame. Had been one of our go to spots prior to Cavaliers basketball games.

We Went before a Browns game and were seated on time and then forgotten about. Drinks took 25minutes. And our meal didn’t arrive til almost an hour after we sat down. The worst part is that I know they were busy but if they had communicated with us I may not have felt so negatively. But no one wanted to take ownership of issues. I get everyone is short staffed but responsive and try to make it work.

Beautiful outdoor patio space. Service was on point.

Unfortunately, they were "out" of two of the three dishes I ordered and the wine by the glass and bottle I tried to order! Super disappointing.
