The food was just very average and slightly overpriced. We have been there before and had better experiences but this one will make us wait a while before going back.

Just average is never what we want to hear, Jim! I'm disappointed that we weren't able to show you the perfect meal, and I'd love to know what was different on this visit. Hope you'll change your mind and give us a chance to remind you of why you've enjoyed Adelle's in the past. Best regards, Debbie, Owner More

I ate at Adelle's on Father's Day, with my husband and my 3 year old. I was able to get reservations with short notice (same day). The restaurant is lovely, and the service was thoughtful a gracious.

An elegant, delicious meal sounds like the perfect way to spend Father's Day! Thanks for celebrating with us and we enjoyed having the whole family here. A 3yr old who enjoys duck - I'm impressed with their palate! Maybe a future top chef! We hope to have you back for a date night soon. Warm wishes, Debbie, Owner More

Have been here for dinner twice. Since food is on the pricier side it'll probably be reserved for birthdays or anniversaries. Dined once in the bar and once on the patio. Both times had great food and service. The patio is decorated with the most lovely glass blown orbs and gorgeous plants. It gives a nice secluded feel even though... More

My husband and I recently ate at this restaurant and were exceptionally surprised! The atmosphere was cozy yet somewhat elegant and the service was impeccable. But the food was outstanding!

Adelle's is located in downtown Wheaton right next to the railroad tracks. I thought this might be a determent to it's outside seating, but the pretty patio area on the street side of the restaurant was quiet and attractive, making it the perfect spot for dinner on a pleasant summer evening. Dinner was exceptional. My andouille wrapped scallops on sweet... More

My wife and I recently ate at Adelles. We sat outside and had a great meal. The train was loud at times but added to the in-town experience. We go out to eat often and the food and service were both thumbs up. We will be back.
