Cozy, sophisticated atmosphere!

Adelle's has been in business for over ten years. We first went when they were in a smaller space and it quickly became our favorite restaurant. The newer larger space still has a warm, cozy feel, but with a more modern, sophisticated look. Same wonderful food and staff! Adelle's is open mainly for... read more

Beautiful restaurant visually. Food is nice, sometimes really good, sometimes just good. For the prices, it would be nice if it were really good with more frequency. However, have friends who think it is great. Live music on some nights. The small private room is really nice if you have a group of eight or so.

Our goal is always to wow you, Mary Frances! Sorry that doesn't happen every visit in your eyes, but thank you for each and every one. Our prices reflect the ingredients we use and that each element of every dish is handcrafted and homemade. So happy to hear you've enjoyed the "alcove" private room -- it's always nice to have...

I couldn't appreciate your kind words and feedback more, Nancy. It always makes my day to hear from someone who has been one of Adelle's long time guests - we couldn't have made it all these years without you!

Food is good appropriately priced and atmosphere makes for a good date night. Bar is a little small. The hostess was very snotty that we were early and wanted to sit in the bar first. Except for the hostess service was good. I can't rate it any higher because hostess attitude when we arrived left a bad taste for the... More

Service is of the utmost importance to us, Dillon, so I'm sure you can imagine how disappointing it is to hear about your experience. I apologize that if you were early, you were not able to enjoy a drink in the lounge. Was it a very busy evening and the bar was full? I hope that what you perceived as... More

We have been going to Adelle's for many years! Chef John is wonderful...his daily risotto is one of the all time bests! A must have. The small plate items are terrific if you just want a light dinner and a glass of wine. As well, the full menu is scrumptious!

My wife and I went the night before Valentine's, so they were fairly busy. Service was a disappointment. Prices are high end, and I would expect high end service. It was below average. Our server seemed "distracted" and was not very attentive - had to flag her down on several occasions. Seemed like she had been in the business too... More

We went to Adele's this weekend for my birthday. We have not been here for three or four years. Let's get the negative out of the way first: The dining room was packed and noisy, not the quiet intimate space we were hoping for. That being said, everything else was fantastic! First of all, we were seated near the fireplace,... More

We return to Adelle's every year for their New Year's dinner. It's difficult to keep something like this going year after year, and keep the quality high. However, this was one of the best ever.
