We went here after checking the Zagat guide. Pretty place with outdoor seating and separate bar. We started with a pear salad w/watercress that was surprisingly tasty,, and the scallop special which was quite good. I had salmon with swiss chard and a sweet potato whip which was good but not exceptional. I eat salmon a lot and the salmon... More

Robin, Thanks for coming out to Wheaton and trying Adelle's! We're glad you were impressed with most of the dishes, but wish every dish had the same impact. Our completely homemade dishes use the freshest, high-quality ingredients, but some are simpler than others. I really appreciate your visit and feedback, and we'd love to have another chance to show you... More

This is definitely one of the best restaurants in the Chicago burbs, or for that matter, anywhere. The focus of the restaurant seemed to be on quality and serving fresh, creative, and delicious meals. Recently I came here with my wife and we ate outside on an early Saturday evening. Everything we ordered including the chilled English pea soup, lobster... More

"Best in the Chicago 'burbs"...we're overjoyed that we're one of your favorites in the area, Ed! It's great to hear that you and your wife enjoyed Chef's chilled summer soup, spring rolls and Copper River salmon -- I'll be sure to pass your compliments. Next time you two need a romantic night out, we can't wait to see you again.... More

My husband and I try to go to Adelle's monthly. We rarely order from the regular menu. The seasonal menu is always a surprise and delight.

Saturday night was our first visit to this restaurant which sits almost unnoticeably in a small strip mall near the train tracks. We had drinks in the bar area before being seated for dinner. The noise level was moderate so conversatoin was easy and we thought the drinks were not over-priced as can often be the case. The dinner menu... More

Our favorite get-comfortable place. Best bartender in the world. She will tell you what is good each night and even steer you away from entrees that may not meet her high standard. Not fancy food but well prepared. Meatloaf is a signature dish with chipotle ketchup. Fish tacos are worth a return visit. Wine choices are excellent. All in all,... More

Wait staff is knowledgeable and professional, food well prepared and presented. One of those restaurants where the price can be high but the quality of the food is a match. From the original location to this more typical restaurant setting, excellent experiences each time.

We dine at Adelle's at least once per month as a couple, with our family or with friends. We never hesitate to recommend Adelle's for the food - high quality we can always count on - the service - friendly and knowledgeable - and the ambiance which is "just right." Great food, great wine, great device, great experience, always.

We decided to try Adelle's for a special occasion, what a disappointment! The food is just mediocre and overpriced at that. The atmosphere is rather cold and not very inviting. The service is just ok, for a fine dinning restaurant I expect more, especially from the owner who happens to be pretty damn rude. A little thank you goes along... More
