For some reason they can’t get the kitchen timing right at this place. It’s been a thing in past visits but it was really bad this time. Because of Covid we were seated as tables of six adults and five kids. Even though we ordered at the same time and nobody else was in the restaurant, by the time any kids got food most of the adults were done with theirs. It was easily a 20 minute difference.
The weird thing was the kids ordered butter noodles and salad. It wasn’t something intricate.
The service was good and the food is always pretty good. That said, most items on the menu seem priced about $5 more than they should be.
Food just like the old Adriatica! Yeah! Would highly recommend.
Our 44year anniversary was expecting a nice dining experience with some ambience. Instead we were seated in the bar at a table for 6. We ordered a cocktail, cup of mushroom soup and antipasto plate for our appetizer which was very good. We asked for another cocktail and ordered our dinner, spaghetti and clam fettuccine. We waited for our cocktails and our waitress said he was very busy and it would be awhile for our drinks. Not sure where all the people were that were ordering drinks as there were not many people there. Our dinner came and we canceled our cocktails. The spaghetti was dry and the clam fettuccine was awful and I should have sent it back. The tiny clams were full of sand and the fettuccine had no flavor. Overall the soup got a 10 everything else gets a 2 😢
This is the perfect patio for an delicious meal. Impeccable, friendly + warm service by Nicki + Becky. They have the best happy hour around all day on Mondays + Tuesdays. So far, the crab cakes are my favorite. Less cake than crab paired with a tasty smoked tomato sauce. I look forward to trying more dishes. This is an ideal spot for date day/night. Thank you greatly to all the staff at Adriatic Grill. 💖💖💖
Food and drinks were outstanding. Wait staff were very friendly and made sure we were taken care of.
We loved our server/bartender Elenore! The food is great, taking me back to one of my favorite Tacoma sposts, just in a new location. The interior, layout and feeling of the space is very dated. The whole interior of the building and the feel of the restaurant could use a freshening and modernization. But props for just being open and serving good food in these tough times!
Fine addition to Lakewood. Chef Bill knows what he is doing and puts out a great meal at fair price. Once the covid is over, he can expand this menu more. They are very good at cleaning and taking care with tables, etc. I had the Lasagna, which Bill has always been a master at doing, I recommend it. Wife had salad and enjoyed it. Wine list is good and they have a full bar.
Wonderful find at Oakbrook Golf Course. Couldn’t ask for a nicer place. Stopped in for lunch and found food and service worth 4 stars.
The bruschetta appetizer was delicious. The calamari was okay, too many small tentacles. It was tender. The clam linguine was very delicious. The Caesar salad with chicken was very good. The portions were generous. Service by David was very good, very attentive and very pleasant.
Delicious as always! So happy to be in doors again! The staff had a rough year! We appreciate each and everyone of them! Having to workthrough this pandemic and still providing us with great service and excellent food!!
Thank you all!!

We had a lovely dinner on the terrace. The service was courteous and prompt. We very much enjoyed this delicious outdoor meal.
Food was excellent as it always is when we dine here. My only complaint is that they dress their salads a bit too heavy. I had the shrimp spiedini, which was delicious and perfectly cooked. I paired it with a caesar salad. My daughter had the sliders and she said they were excellent. Hubby had the burger and he really enjoyed it. Always great service and their bread they serve beforehand is so delicious!
So happy that Adriatic has reopened their doors. We celebrated my birthday and our waitress was so energetic and informative. Thank you for making my birthday memorable.
So glad to see this restaurant come back! The food is just as good as it had always been.
I know we were eating in a golf club, but listening to a golf tournament in the restaurant (not the bar) was a little off-putting
As always great service and fabulous food!!
We really appreciate the staff and chef’s willingness to accommodate our gluten free needs.
The all day happy on Monday and Tuesdays is an amazing deal! You can’t beat their mushroom soup also!
This is the second time we have been there. The food is great. Each of us (4) had a different menu item. All were extremely good. We will return.
A couple of criticisms: The waitress didn't check in on us very often. Additionally, the glass of wine was extremely small portion compared to other places we have visited and not worth the price. The wine was fine, the quantity was far too small.
It was great. Very good food and service. Very quiet
Dinner was Amazing! Outdoor dining in January can get a bit cold, but the service was great and we were happy we wore our down jackets😊
We were aparty of 3 and had three different meals. 2 of the three are pretty fussy eaters but all three of us thoroughly enjoyed the food. Very tasty and oprepare just right. The entrees were the chicken, salmon and the spaghetti with meatballs. We were inside the large tent. The heater was noisy, but we were sitting and eating, and not at home. We will do this again.
We absolutely recommend it.
Great food as always! Very accommodating to keep us warm outside on the patio! Cant wait to eat inside soon!!
Adriatic has been a favorite with our family since they first opened at the original site, and we were relieved when they opened in the new location. The outdoor dining area they have set up due to Covid-19 is really well done. Our pizza, spaghetti, soup, salad, and appetizers were excellent. Our one complaint is that the language used by other patrons seems to have gotten substantially worse at the golf course site. The number of f-bombs and other swear words used by loud parties enjoying a drink after leaving the links has really impacted our last 2 visits in a negative way. We shouldn't be able to hear the conversation at other tables better than the one at our own. If we had younger children, we would probably find a sitter or not go at all. I am not sure how this can best be addressed, but it is something to consider if you are planning for a special evening.
Excellent service & food was delicious. We were dining New Year’s Eve - outdoor dining, they had beautiful chandeliers hanging and heaters near all the tables. We had a lovely evening and felt completely safe.
Fun time with friends and family
The food was great and it was nice to be able to sit down and eat.
Great food and service. The outdoor tent was cool and noisy (as expected due to the heaters and fans.)
Always great food! Unfortunately with covid we ate out side.
They put ip a tent now with more heat to accommodate. Doing a great job!
WE went here twice in one week. Very nice set up, great, friendly staff, good drinks and delicious food! Large covered patio with heaters was very comfortable and warm. Tables spaced out well! Love that they take reservations too. Other places were two hour wait so we will be coming back here often.
Inside the tent. Only us and another couple there. Drinks were cools and good, wait staff friendly and attentive.
As usual great food! Very accommodating for covid rules being outside. Had heaters for diners.
Soooo happy we found out that this restaurant reopened! Chef has outstanding food We have been regulars in the Tacoma location and now again in Lakewood! Buddy is our favorite bartender and we are so happy to see him as well!!
We are looking forward for our next visit!!!

Lovely seating on the deck
Great food as always! Great service as always!
Lunch with spouse; first time after move from mall location. Pasta bolognese and Caesar salad. Good size portion, tasty and good overall service. Will try again.
Enjoyed their special Valentine's Day weekend menu. The number of options was few but it was fantastic. My hubbie had the garlic steak and I had Rigatoni bolognese. We both loved every bite. Highly recommend.
Food quality was outstanding, mushroom soup was just as I recall from the Tacoma location, a must have every time. A little more attention to detail with the customer facing staff and a wider menu (don't know if menu was restricted for Valentine's Day) will make this a hidden gem for dinners out.
We loved the Adriatic at the old location. The menu at the new location is limited but still had some of our favorites. The dining area was nice too. I do recommend giving the new location a try!
