Adelles is always a wonderful experience. Their food is excellent and I really enjoy the specials the chef prepares every evening. We sat outside on their beautiful patio and truly enjoyed the ambiance. Adelles is a consistently outstanding restaurant.

We were outside so noise level was not a problem. It’s one of the few restaurants inside where you dont have to strain to hear the people sitting with you.😊

I was very disappointed with the service. We waited about
15-20 min before anyone came to the table. I thought the waitress was flustered. Perhaps they were short staffed that night. I have been there previously and the experience was great. It may be awhile before I return.

The outdoor seating area is the best anywhere around! We brought friends that had previously enjoyed the indoors so much, we had to share the outdoors with them recently. They said several times during the meal they wished there was a place like this in their town! What a relaxed night of food, service, and ambiance. Perfect!!

Adele’s is our favorite place to eat. We sat on the patio for the first time this season and enjoyed it immensely. Food was awesome as always, staff was attentive and friendly. We were celebrating our anniversary and the waitress brought us complimentary champagne (notified by Open Table). Great experience!

Great service, great food. We love the patio at Adelle's. They have done lots to minimize the sun peaking through and screening the patio from the sidewalk. The whitefish was delicious as was the snapper. Our server, Mei, was attentive without being a nuisance. The only negative was one of the appetizers was served much later than the first appetizer. We thought it had been forgotten. We will definitely return.

Server was very nice, and overall did a great job. Bus staff kept asking to clear too soon, and when they finally did they banged every piece of China and silver together in an incredibly annoying manner. The food was disappointing. Risotto was not risotto. Oh, maybe aborio rice but terrible technique. We ordered soft shell crab....then told they were out 5 minutes later. Pork Chop was just fine. The special deviled eggs were not special. Overall nice place, nice people, but kitchen cooked like it was just a job. No passion, no care, no love. Would not avoid the restaurant, but would definitely not go out of my way to return. So many better choices in the world.

Don’t know how the food tasted, we ended up leaving after sitting at our table with drinks for over 30 minutes without someone taking our order. The manager was nice and offered to comp our meal, but we were frustrated with the lack of service. Other tables around us had been attended to two or three times while we were ignored.

The patio is beautiful on a warm summer evening. There were 4 of us and we ordered lots of appetizers including the lobster spring rolls, the deviled eggs, fish tacos, sliders and an on special dish - seafood risotto. All dishes were amazing with great flavor and just plain delicious. A fun night.

Daughter-in-law's birthday; seating and wait staff were very good; one of us is vegetarian and there were no choices on the menu - when our vegetarian guest asked for suggestions, the waiter hesitated and mentioned a salad. When asked further, the only offerings were a side dish of asparagus and a sweet potato that seemed to be mashed in a bowl with no seasoning and very dry.

Our guest is vegetarian, not even vegan - he did enjoy the beet salad, but there should be one or two specific entrees available with grains like rice or quinoa with roasted veggies or perhaps the chef could prepare something a little creative and delicious from seasonal produce. Most restaurants we dine at are happy to prepare something.

Overall, good experience however, nothing exceptional. After being seated, it took some time to have a server ask us for our drink orders. When dinner was served, it was by runners who hastily dropped our food and left. Again, more time passed prior to our server stopping by to see if everything was satisfactory. Multiple times during our meal, bus staff continually tried to pick up our plates.

Food was good, however the overall experience was not relaxed and we continually felt rushed. Not sure I would return.
