This was our first time to Adelle’s and we will be back. The cocktails were excellent - nice bar with fireplace. I had the delicious sea bass. It was cooked to perfection with rosemary and lemon. My husband had the risotto- OH MY was that great. Our friends loved their meals too. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. I like the fact that we could hear each other talking without having to yell. Great place with yummy food!

We’ve been here many times, often taking advantage of free corkage Tuesday. Service is always excellent, regardless of who is taking care of us. In addition to being professional, they always seem in good spirits. On this night we noticed the menu may have had a welcome re-vamping with entrees we hadn’t noticed before. Adelle’s is always consistent and we will of course return.

We dined here Saturday night, with friends. The food was excellent, the atmosphere is great, and everyone is very friendly. They do have a porch for dining, although we ate inside. They also have a wonderful bar with music on various nights. We will definitely return, and we would highly recommend.

We went out to dinner for my birthday and a friend of ours was playing guitar with another guitarist in the bar. We sat in the restaurant close to the bar. We were able to listen to the music and enjoy it but chat also very easily.

The food was excellent. Our server was really good and took good care of us Wonderful dinner and great ambiance. Would highly recommend

Hadn’t been to Adele’s in years and wanted to get back for my birthday. We sat outside which was very nice. The menu seemed limited and nothing really appealed to me. I had the meatloaf (because now thing else seemed attractive) which was good but not all that exciting. The pricing was a bit high and the service was adequate but not particularly efficient or welcoming. My memories were better than my recent experience.

A wonderful experience again. This is our second visit and the quality of the food, drinks and service were spectacular all around. Our server was knowledgeable, present but not pushy, friendly and professional. The food was spectacular. We enjoyed a seasonal berry salad, risotto, swordfish and salmon. We treated ourselves to dessert as well.

First time experience: surprising
Food: ok but not spectacular. My garlicky potatoes/beans were not garlicky at all, potatoes scooped with an ice cream scoop, and really, it was like food you’d make at home.
Service: felt like we were trying to be up-sold drinks.
Ambiance: surprised there really was no ambiance. Flowers painted on the walls? What’s the Adelle’s brand exactly? And wobbly table that kept being a nuisance. That’s easy enough to care for so our drinks and food don’t nearly fly off the table. :)

Adelle’s has good intentions but could do better from food to service to ambiance. Punch it up a bit! Wish the best for them. Wheaton needs good restaurants!

Everything was great except that they added a gratuity to the check. I though that in the State of Illinois, gratuities should not be added to a check. I would still have given a similar gratuity even if it was not on the check and I was disappointed that they made it somewhat a requirement.

It had been awhile since we had dinner at Adelle's. Sadly, they seem to have slipped. Menu was very limited. Food was mediocre at best. We knew something was off when our dinner arrived at the table within 2 minutes of ordering. Seriously! And it tasted like it had been just sitting under a warmer. What happened to making everything from scratch? I know my noodles were not boiled fresh. Disappointing. We may not be back again...

I have been to Adelle’s many times but Mothers Dsy was such a disappointment. To start we had a grumpy waitress. The 1st course was unimpressive, I had a shrimp dish that was a simple breaded shrimp. My medium plus fillet came rare and after waiting for what seemed like an eternity I asked our waitress to bring it back to be cooked medium plus. It came back having only been cooked slightly more. I guess the chef couldn’t be bothered. All this at premium prices. We had 6 people dining and everyone left disappointed.

Food and Service was excellent as always. I usually get the Risotto, which changes daily. Their Risotto is the best I've found anywhere. I quit ordering Risotto elsewhere because I was always disappointed when compared to Adelle's. My wife ordered Flank Steak and loved it, it was prepared to perfection. We always come back when we are looking for high quality, excellently prepared meals.

What a gem! Broad range of menu selections, each with it's own distinctive flair. We had the pork schnitzel - was the best I've had. Sat in the bar area to listen to fantastic live music that was the perfect sound level - could still have a conversation. Atmosphere was intimate yet lively. We've been to Adelle's several times - worth the 40-minute drive!

Adelle's always is a favorite for a great evening. The ambiance is perfect for a night of casual conversation and fine dining. Our table had the salmon, flat iron steak, risotto and schnitzel, all prepared to our total satisfaction. Desserts of pistachio gelato, brown and almond cake was the perfect end to a great evening.
