Food is unique, fresh, and is different enough of a menu to make one visit. Service was impeccable, as water was filled ridiculously fast, plates taken away but not like trying to rush you out. Taste of all things very good, especially the potatoes that came with the meatloaf. Price, honestly, was higher than needs to be. Also, bread should be a normal, on table, free expectation at this point, unless you want to pay for a specialty loaf or something unique. $5 for the bread loaf makes you think the whole time why am I paying for something I normally get for free, even at high price nice restaurants like Hugo’s. All in all, crowd was good, food was very good, service was great, and a small change could make this a return place easily. PS: Great Covid mask-wearing by all employees too, which was great.

First time there. Had great reviews. Would try again, the outside patio looks very nice. Our server was not very attentive, seemed rushed. I was served a hot drink in a coupe champagne glass. Very difficult to drink without spilling and burning myself. I mentioned it to the server and she said, yaaa they should serve that in a mug. I thought she would do that for me but didn't. Told me a crab louis salad was large enough for two. It wasn't even at a cost of $15. It was a small scoop of a crab salad (thought it wouldn't be like tuna salad) on I counted 5 small endive leafs. Also had a shell in it, guess it was real crab. My husbands dinner salad was substantial. The cauliflower puree under my scallops was fantastic! Another surprise was having to pay $5.00 for bread. It was Valentine's Day and we were disppointed not even a flower or candle on the tables. But overall food was good.

WE REALLY appreciate you recognizing that it was a holiday weekend and you'll try us again when we have been able to operate without continual shut-downs. We are just getting reopened and operated as best as possible for the holiday weekend after being shut down for many months with most of our staff furloughed. I apologize, your server should have accommodated your request if you preferred different glassware. Sorry but we are not allowed decorations or communal items on tables at this time.

We especially love to sit outside at Adelle's. The food is always great with a nice mix of main courses. They also have a nice selection of appetizers which we have been known to get several of and share between us in lieu of a main course. You really can't go wrong with Adelle's, everything is top notch.

We regret that your meal was not up to our high standards; I wish we had the opportunity to cook you another steak or a different entree.

Seared scallops felt microwaved and they were almost cold when they came out. My date ordered a strip steak and that appeared pre cooked and microwaved to warm it up before being brought out. She had two bites of that and was done. Limited menu and it seemed like they were out of a decent percentage of the options - although our reservation was later in the evening close to 8pm

Service was great very friendly and professional

TY! for the 4stars even though you were less than thrilled with your meal. We REALLY APPRECIATE your visit and we are operating as best as possible for this holiday weekend after being shut down for many months. We do not microwave our food, but truly regret that it was not up to the high standards we set for Adelle's. Since all our fresh ingredients are prepped daily, at times we do run out of dishes. TY for your understanding and please visit us again when we have been allowed normal service.

This is actually my first negative review on a restaurant. On the positive side, the wait staff and restaurant ambiance were good. I was very disappointed by the quality of the food. I ordered the tuna tartare as a starter and it lacked any taste. I believe they didn't marinade the tune with any sauce, spice or anything else so it completely lacked any flavor. This is one of my favourite dishes so I know what it should taste like. My wife ordered the Beef short rib which was slightly burned and tasted gamey. It sat in a bed of watery risotto. My dish was ok, but definitely not great. We were shocked after reading positive past reviews so hopefully this is just a one off.

All 3 of us shared a Caesar Salad which was delicioius! We loved the dressing and liked that it was lightly applied. Your Vienna bread is delicious too! All 3 of us ordered the duck breast with marscapone polenta and cherries. It was tender and delicious! The cherries were a nice accompaniment. We all enjoyed the polenta. Service was very good. Our water glasses were refilled promptly which is a nice touch. Two of us had a glass of the sangiovese/cabernet from Italy. It is a very nice wine and complemented our entree.

I'm a little bias....Adelles is my absolute favorite restaurant. The owners work hard andare dedicated to excellence, and patron satisfaction. Adelles is not a chain restaurant and a scratch kitchen. This time was there for a small birthday celebration and was not disappointed. Additionally, care is taken to keep patrons safe during this pandemic.

Adelle's has always been one of our favorite spots. They have recently hired a new chef which we did not know. My husband was very bummed that many of his "favorites" were no longer on the menu. We figured we were there, we need to give the new chef a chance. Everything we ordered was fantastic and very tasty. We missed having our normal "go to" choices, but had a very enjoyable experience with the new menu.

Food totally different quality then in past. Very disappointed & with 4 people we tried 3 different entrees. Scallops were gritty & rubbery.

Dear Anonymous, During Covid mandates, we are operating with a limited staff & limited capabilities. We regret that we couldn't please you, but please consider trying us again when we are not having an off night. The new Chef has been very well received, he's working with more obstacles to serve our scratch, farm-to-table cuisine, & I hope you will give him a fair opportunity in the future to showcase his new dishes. We appreciate you dining with us and hope to prove we will be better than ever!
