We did not have reservations on a Saturday night, but waited about 20 minutes to be seated outside on patio. Very nice patio! Service was excellent! Food was excellent! I had the Salssicia Peperonata and the Scaloppine Marco Antonio and my wife had the Moules Marinara and the home made Manicotti Alla Fiorentina. All were delicious, especially the manicotti, made...

This was our second visit to this restaurant in the last couple of years and each time even with no reservation, they were able to accommodate us. It's our chance to practice our poor French and the staff always seems to understand! Food is excellent and we weren't rushed through our meal. Beautiful view of the lake - a relaxing... More

They have great service, good Italian food & an amazing setting. The daily catch (doré) was delicious and the veal was cooked to perfection. For dessert, the tiramisu and the creme caramel were amazing. I would certainly go back with my family.

We had supper at Esmeralda on a Friday night.. Restaurant was quiet. 6 out 8 of us ordered pasta. Every dish lacked flavour and seasoning. I personally ordered the carbonara.. It was watery and full of chunks of black pepper. No flavour. My nephew ordered the cannelloni with cheese. That tasted sour almost spoiled. Other dishes were the same.. Watery... More

The food was delicious, I enjoyed a pasta dish and my wife a steak. The service very good, we never felt rushed and enjoyed the wonderful ambiance and sunset from the terrasse. The only drawback to this delightful restaurant is perhaps the price. Two table d'hôtes orders + a coffee ran us a tab over $100 after tip. So while... More

Best service I have ever received in my life. We were welcomed as family, the place is a very cosy chalet establishment. the food portions were amazing and the service was incredible. Everything is home made Italian food, where the owners are the chefs. We order from the table d'hôte, and received appetizers, entrées, main meal, desserts, tea/coffee and even... More

Excellent Italian food and great service. The couples would love it! The owners are very caring. The interior is very warming and the view to the Round Lac is extraordinary. I consider this for one of the top spots in Ste-Adèle!

Too expensive for the quality of the food. Excellent martini. Tomato sauce lacked flavor. The lamb braised in rosemary and orange tasted of neither but not bad nonetheless. The eggplant appetizer was very good as was the chocolate moose cake. The apple tart did not taste like apples. We had two waitresses who were both nice. It wasn't that busy... More
