Adelle's Ratings and Reviews
This is a great restaurant! I have heard Adelles advertised on the COD jazz radio many times and we decided to try it as a belated Valentines Celebration. It exceeded my wife's and my expectations in every way. Great music, food and service. From now on this will be "Our Place" to celebrate and entertain.
If a restaurant has poor background music and lukewarm food it kills my experience. Adelle’s delivered on both. Music just right in terms of volume and styles...yes, plural. A nice mix of different music. Trust me it matters. Food was hot. And wonderful; good menu choices. Service with a smile and staff attentive. Wine list full of choices and one of the best in the western suburbs with quality, premium wines; some well known and some other good finds.
We (3) visited this restaurant recently for Valentines Day. They were fully booked. They used a fixed price approach with various options for appetizer, entree and desert. Any wine or cocktails were extra. With the exception of the Halibut, which was a little tough. Though a little pricey, everything (food, service, ambiance) was excellent. We will return and do recommend.
I had the pork chop porterhouse which was one of the dinners on the special menu. It was just OK. My wife had the regular menu salmon, which the waiter said was better then the special menu salmon. She did not like it at all. Very dry. I ordered the Caesar salad and it was the worst Caesar I have ever had. Have been coming here for years and was very disappointed the last two times. Guess I will just stick to Ivy when I want to dine in Wheaton.
We were seated promptly but the seat directly in front of the kitchen door was less then desirable for our group of four to sit and enjoy a nice dinner.
Our server was very nice and attentive but the bus service was slow and we kept needing to ask for water.
Two of us enjoyed our meals and two of us found them a bit lacking. Whatever they used to ‘spice ‘ the salmon and kale was too salty and left me with indigestion.
Disappointed. Boxed mashed potatoes served with meatloaf. But the guy at the table next to me got REAL mashed potatoes (could see the red skins mixed in) with his steak. Very disappointed. Waitress seemed uninterested in being there and forgot to apply out restaurant week discount.
Jazz Thursdays - WDCB - Well-polished performers!
Wonderful--perfect ambience. No rush and thoroughly enjoyed our dinner.
Bar service---wonderful signature cocktails
Dinner - apps/entree a hit! Tuna tartare, lobster/caviar deviled eggs, trout with an amazing hollandaise!
I was totally unimpressed by this restsurant. I was expecting more based on the glowing reviews. To start off the hostess barely said s word to us and looked as if she was mad at the world- totally unwelcoming! Secondly, the decor is atrocious! It is one thing when a restaurant simply does not try, but a totally different thing when they make s definite attempt at creating a look that just does not work. Adelle’s decor appeared to be attending an industrial theme but had mission style lighting fixtures and overall was cold feeling and dull.The food was abut better than average. The appetizer of pear and date bruschetta was soggy and the carrot soup was bland, but at least it was hot. The cuts of meat?chicken and pork) were both very tender and delicious. The service was the highlight of the experience. Our server was extremely friendly, attentive, and very accommodating to my special requests. Overall, the best part of the dinner was the service.
We have been going to Adelle's for years, beginning with their old location by Wheaton College. This visit was on New Years Eve and was our first truly disappointing visit. We had made a point to request a table where we could sit and hear the jazz duo . We waited twenty minutes but that didn't happen. Instead, we were seated in the far corner of the dining room by the emergency exit.
Service was just okay. Our server did not have much of a personality. Overall the food was very good (as usual). With drinks, we spent well over $400 (for four people). Other good restaurants offered their regular menu as well as a special NYE menu -- but there was no choice here, just the $85/person, prix fixe menu. We were disappointed.
We had a very nice meal and service was OK even though it was quite busy (Christmas Eve.) Unfortunately we were seated vey close to the entry and cold air filtering in was a drawback. I like the restaurant and we go regularly not only for special occasions.
Three of my friends and I dined at Adelle’s to celebrate two birthdays, they all had previously eaten their and this was my first time. The atmosphere was beautiful and festive for the Christmas holidays. The staff was super and food was delicious, they did not rush us in ordering so we had lots of time to talk over drinks before ordering appetizers and the main course. I definitely plan to be a return customer.
Have been going here for years and prior location. The last several times we have gone for dinner with friends the service seemed challenged, slow and confusing. Some meals were good others were poor. Just seems like Adell's is boring and not as interesting as it used to be. Cocktails and wine selections are still great. Bar and some appetizers are always enjoyable.
I'm just not going to miss going for dinner anymore. Too bad.
