As in the past, our experience at Adriatic Grill was fantastic. The food was creative and flavorful, server was friendly. And the prices were very reasonable for the quality of the food. Because it's a "grill" the noise level was a bit high for quiet conversation, but overall fine. A great meal.

The food and service are consistently great here. The chicken Parmesan is delicious. My husband wasn't feeling well and the waitress took time to help him with a light selection. Our son loves the pizza.

Long wait for cold and burnt food. $214 meal ticket not worth it. This was our third and last visit. Waitress was awesome. I don't believe in sending back food and eating in shifts. When I take a party of six out to eat it is to all eat at the same time. Two of my guest had salads so don't thinks four meals should be hard to provide eatable food.

Was my very first experience with this restaurant. Went there with my family on 31 Dec 2017, and we had a good time. Good food, good service, and friendly personnel. Also, there is a discount for military members (10% I believe). For that particular occasion however, it seemed like there was less trust between either the manager and restaurant personnel, or the manager and the customer. Although the waitress asked to visually check military id for discount purpose (which seems normal), they would later ask to take the military id card to the manager when paying for the bill. This may be uncomfortable for some people (including myself). I would suggest the manager come to the client and double-check the ID, if possible.

Thank you for such a wonderful visit. You always treat us like family.

Our server was knowledgeable about the wine list and accommodating of our family’s dietary preferences. The food was delicious, and tasted very much like quality ingredients were used.
I’d happily go back next time we’re in town!

Xmas Eve dinner at Adriatic Grill was unfortunate & disappointing. I had been to the bar a few months back & it was nice, so we gave it a try. 8:00 PM was the earliest time left when I booked with Open Table and there was only one other seating in the entire place & a few people in the bar when we got there.

They put our party of 4 into a 4 top booth - it was a little cramped with all the winter coats, etc, (which no one offered to take) so I asked to be moved to a round table that sat 5 so we would have more room & were told no.

So I went up to speak to the hostess who said they could move us a table, but not the round one, to a square one for 4, in case a party of 5 came in (?!) again the place was almost empty. Upon taking our order we were informed they were trying to close to go home for xmas eve so if we thought we wanted a 2nd drink we would need to order them at the same time so the bar could close - (?!!) so there are all 4 of us at a square table each w/ water & 2 cocktails - so 12 glasses! We ordered dinner and were told if we wanted dessert we needed to order it now - at the SAME time we ordered dinner (?!!) when our food came, my chicken parm & my daughter's Fettucine were lukewarm, though my two son's meals were hot and they liked them. SO clearly ours had been kept under a warmer. we had ordered 2 choc molten cakes for dessert that were brought out immediately after our meals, served also lukewarm with whipped cream instead of ice cream, which was melted already - inedible - we each had 2 bites. The bill was brought immediately after that - nothing subtle about wanting us out of there - our res was for 8 PM & we were back in our car heading home by 8:45.

I understand wanting to go home, but it was our holiday too, we paid the same price as the 1st guest that night and it would have taken so little effort to make it a lovely meal for us , prevent this review and the lost patronage from us in future & we go out several times a month.

An all together delightful experience on Christmas Eve as the light was fading and the snow was falling. Very festive without being overboard.

Great food and service for a good price.

I loved the open table option.

However, we had asked for a booth and they apologized that they "missed" that request... also the reason we were there was to celebrate my son's 12th bday. I had to remind them so they would tell our server. From that perpsective, I was disappointed. The food as always (we have been coming to Adriatic for years) was delish as always and our server did his best & was friendly, but we had to ask for water and bread was scarce (he said they'd been busy earlier.. our reservation was 6p) although the table next to us did not seem to be lacking...

Overall, it was ok. I will say the last few times we have been in, and seated in the restaurant section, its not been that impressive; its definitely not the experience it used to be. Although bar service is usually always on point...

One last thing, just because I have kids (17/12) doesn't mean I want to sit by other (much younger) kids. My kids are basically adult patrons... please ask my preference, or recognize they aren't "littles".

Thank you.
We love Adriatic... and will always reccommend and visit. There just needs to be some attn to details I feel in our opinion.

Happy Holidays!
