Love to go to Adesso-Olympia - still small and quaint. You get a lot of good quality food for your money, so we taken to sharing a main entree. We both have a dinner salad, glass of wine during happy hour and share a main entree, assuring we are eating the right amount of food without having to take the... More

Went to Adesso as part of a Living Social Deal. Quaint a little brick hole in the wall restaurant. Very Cordial yet eclectic staff. Bigger menu than anticipated. Great Martinis. They were out of Escargot, so we ordered the calamari. On a scale of 1-10, I would give it an 8 only because the sauces were just average. For our... More

I recently dined at Adesso, having dined there once before. My first experience was much more favorable, as I recall the food to have been quite good. This time, although the atmosphere was very nice and the staff attentive, the food was only mediocre. We started with the bruschetta, which was quite nice ... perhaps not as elegant as I've... More

Let it be know to those who wrote negative reviews, that this is not a fast food restaurant. It has a nice mellow atmosphere, where you are served in courses, giving you time to savor for your food and enjoy the company you are with, not found too often in Olympia restaurants. Our first visit to Adesso was with four... More

Adesso's is a comfortable quiet restaurant that seems well attended. The portions are average size but lacking slightly of flavor. They staff were not really friendly, sort of pretended to tolerate you.

My wife and I sampled the restaurant on the living social 2 for 1 deal. I was leery after reading some of the reviews but we were very pleased. We went on Monday right after they opened. There were only two other couples. One waitstaff fixed the drinks and served the food. Warm and friendly, she adeptly handled it all.... More

We were here on a Fri. night, using a 2/1 Living Social voucher. Had to wait a bit to be seated even though the restaurant had just opened, but they were nice. Apparently the staff starts 1/2 hour after they open. ?? Resturant itself is very pretty, and feels comfortable. The food was very good, the staff was friendly and... More

We never got seated. We went in about an hour after the restaurant was opened. There were two customers at the bar and the waiters made eye contact with us but, did not greet us or acknowledge our existence. After waiting while the staff talked amongst themselves, we went elsewhere.

Can't even begin to describe how disappointing this meal was... the gyro meat was mushy with no browning on it at all, which points to microwave heating. The salad dressing was almost certainly from a jar, and my friend's pizza had sauce that still tasted of canned tomatoes. The waitress interrupted frequently to tell us jokes and riddles, and the...
