    I found the service excellent l. I found the soup was too spicy and server offer another option. Most of the entrees were seafood and I can’t have them so the menu was limited for me. Overall it was a nice restaurant.

    Ordered a specialty old fashioned from drink menu for $14. It was like a cheap bourbon kool aid in a glass with no garnish. Wife ordered the chicken breast which she choked down due to salt overload. Portion size was small as well. The calimari and my fish and chips were fine for what they are. This would not be a restaurant I'd choose to spend a $180 again for food, appeteizer, drinks and tip.

    Food was absolutely amazing! We had the duck confit egg rolls (could of ordered a second round of then they were so good, light and refreshing), my fiance got the white fish entree and she really enjoyed it, said it was very filling but light at the same time. She liked that it came with the veggies. I ordered the double decker burger, my only critique was slightly too salty besides that the burger was really delicious but I'm very picky about salt, the fries were super good probably the best fries I've had in my life. We got the flourless chocolate cake our server recommended and it was a great choice. The owner or restaurant manager walked around to every table asking how the food was. The inside restaurant was nice and quiet. The patio was definitely more lively and had a ton of energy, we felt it was a little too warm for us to eat out there but I would want to be out there on a cooler fall day. Everybody, the hostess, buss staff, server, and restaurant manager were all beyond friendly and very respectful. Couldn't say enough good things about this place, highly recommend going here!

Bruce was attentive as could be to make sure his patrons were being taken care of. The food choices were excellent and delicious. The presentation superb. Always a pleasure and will make a point of going more often. We adore you Adelle's!!!!!

    Lovely patio, good food, and adequate service, but, WOW! So expensive! Four of us had dinner: two white fish (which was delicious), one pasta dish, and one crab-stuffed ravioli. Three of us had drinks, 2 wines and 2 mixed drinks. We were surprised at the $250+ bill! I will go back again, for sure, but I have to save up for it!

    Thips was our first time at Adelles and we were not disapointed! It has a very comfortable ambiant patio, perfect for relaxing and sharing a meal. Not too crowded or loud. Their fried fish is the best Ive ever had! And dont even get me started on the burrata! Absolutely delicious! A lovely spot, I cant wait to come back to try the other enticing menu items.

    We haven’t been to Adelle‘s since pre-Covid. What brought us back was our anniversary. We loved dining at Adelle‘s in the past, and we were happy to be back. We had early reservations at 5:30p so we were the first table sat in the dining room, which felt very odd. There were also two tables on the patio that had guests. Adelle‘s is a large restaurant with a great bar area and also outside dining. They have good cocktails and good food. I love the ambience as well. Our server was Nancy, and she was very sweet and attentive. My husband and I started with cocktails and shared two appetizers. The burrata was served with prosciutto and basil pesto along with grilled bread. The grilled Spanish octopus came with fingerling potatoes and a garlic aioli. Both were very good and good portion sizes. For dinner I opted for the honey glazed duck breast with seared gnocchi and fennel. The duck breast was perfectly cooked to a medium rare. The portion, however, was small, maybe 4 or 5oz. Being Italian, I was envisioning regular gnocchi but what was served was a rectangle piece of what I would call polenta, not gnocchi. My husband had the whitefish which was a large portion and perfectly seared. We were so full and didn’t order dessert, but Nancy was so sweet and brought us complimentary glasses of champagne for anniversary. We really enjoyed being back at this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. When we left around 7p, the restaurant was still pretty vacant. In the past, I was used to a full restaurant no matter what time we visited. I’ll definitely be coming back to Adelle‘s to dine. There’s a different menu now and new things to try, but I do miss their duck confit gnocchi. Bring that back!

    Our biggest issue was service. Was seated for twenty minutes before the server came to the table . The server was apologetic but walked past several times and could have easily acknowledged our presence on any of those occasions. I did try to get another servers attention who also kept walking past our table to no avail. There were many open tables so I don’t think the “crowd” contributed to the delayed in service. The food was flavorful. However, for the price I would expect much better service.

    The Portobello Fries and the Calamari were excellent. However the Whitefish had way too much salt. The patio is beautiful, but too much street noise....so we dined in the bar. Herman did an excellent job of serving us and the music was good.

    Beautiful 80 degree evening. Decided to go somewhere to dine outside. Parking was easy and free. We were seated almost immediately and had a table that was not crowded. Patio was covered and had trellises that blocked the street view but still let in the breeze. We commented on all the interesting flowers made from dishes. Service was prompt and friendly and I never got more than halfway through my water before it was refilled. Portion sizes were generous (I’m 234 lbs and love to eat) and food was tasty and unique. We loved everything we ordered (strawberry gazpacho, cheese plate, gnocchi, cod, panna cotta, and sorbetto) and had leftovers. Will definitely come back

    We ate on the patio and the evening weather was spectacular. The food is always wonderful at Adelle's and this meal was no different. The whitefish with salsa was excellent, as was the fish and chips. The strawberry gazpacho wasn't as good as last summer's watermelon gazpacho, but the latter is a very hard act to follow. The martini was excellent. The patio chairs are always uncomfortable, but maybe that's the price to pay for outdoor dining? Adelle's is one of our favorite upscale restaurants and we'd recommend it to anyone who likes an eclectic menu and truly delicious dishes.
