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