The restaurant was very welcoming with the holiday decor and fireplaces. We thoroughly enjoyed our pear and date bruschetta appetizer and cleaned up the platter. We choose to go with the small plates of tacos (4) and sliders (3) and both were very tasty. The waiter, John, was excellent, as was the service.

We had dinner her on Friday night and the food and atmosphere was great. We sat in the bar area and enjoyed the guitarist. The menus is top notch and I recommend the fried mushrooms. They are not the same that you would get at a TGIF or Applebees. These are gourmet. The soups are homemade and the squash soup... More

I am mystified how this restaurant got so many glowing reviews. Never mind any international standard, just compare this food to what is abundantly available in Chicago for the same price. It is not even close.

Marc, sorry to see that we were unable to impress you on your visit. We do have a lot of glowing reviews, and everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and they all matter to us.

We had a very pleasant evening with friend at Adell's. The food was really good and the Jazz music in the background added to the very agreeable atmosphere. The service was extremely attentive and helpful. We look forward to our next visit at Adell's and highly recommend this restaurant.

I was here for a baby shower and it was incredible. From the tomato basil soup to the chicken entree. All good. The choices we had can be found on their menu as well. They also have a beautiful outdoor area. Will go back.
