If you haven’t eaten at Ada’s...DO! We were looking to branch out from some of our usual haunts, and the menu at Ada’s looked good. I’m always a little nervous being the person to pick a new place, but Ada’s did not disappoint! I had...the pan seared whole trout and my companion had the Turkish Manti (small meat dumplings with an amazing sauce of yogurt, browned butter and mint. Our dishes were each absolutely divine! Seriously! Their wine list had some lovely selections and we went with the Bellacosa Cabernet Sauvignon...and enjoyed it immensely. We finished off with desserts of rice pudding and profiteroles. I honestly can’t think of adequate adjectives to describe how wonderful the meal was. The Chef came out to check on everyone and our waiter was present as needed, pleasant and didn’t hover, so we could relax and enjoy our meal. All in all a fantastic evening which will be repeated soon!More

Went last Saturday with a friend. Lovely variety, great cocktail and wine choices. We shared an artichoke appetizer that was amazing and enjoyed epic fish and chips! We agreed we would come back and could order the same meals! But they also have many specials...and menu options!More

Went here as a couple during Restaurant Week. Service attentive but not fussy. Comfortable, relaxed and rather romantic atmosphere. Food was scrumptious! The desserts we shared, baklava and a chocolate profiterol, lasted about a nano-second as we scarfed them down even after an appetizer and...full meal. Hubby had almond ricotta ravioli, I had stuffed eggplant with arancini ball (which was to die for). Splendid tastes, nice folks, little neighborhood gem. Thanks, Delaney & team. Would return.More

We met some friends for dinner here last night - so good!!! We ordered from the restaurant week special menu, I had the stuffed eggplant and loved it! Very flavorful. My husband had the ravioli and we both had the lentil soup for starters. The...portions we’re generous. The service was exceptional. Baklava and profiteroles for dessert! We shall return! Lighting and music were spot on.More

We ate here tonight for Restaurant Week, had not previously known this local restaurant existed. We chose to order off the more limited three course Restaurant Week menu, which had enough options to make us happy. We got the rainbow tapenade and lentil soup, the...almond ricotta butter ravioli and vegetable stuffed eggplant (we are not vegans or even vegetarians but inadvertently ordered vegan entrees), and for dessert baklava and profiterole. All items were delicious. Portions not huge but we came away full. There is a decent offering of wine by the glass and beers. All staff we encountered were very friendly. We will be back.More

If you want to step out of the ordinary and experience an extraordinary meal with a Turkish flare, then Ada's is the place for you!!! The owner/chef and all the staff treated us as if we were the only guests there. The menu is expansive...and full of vegan, vegetarian options along side the vast choices with meats, poultry and fish. The lentil soup was amazing and my seared scallops was to die for. My dinner mate had the warm vegetable appetizer and the fresh trout. All was superb. A wonderful spot for a romantic meal.More

This place is a sleeper. It was surprisingly empty on a Friday night. The service was excellent. The server/bartender was quite knowledgable and helpful. We started with a tuna tartar appetizer. It was well-plated and tasty with taro root chips. I had Copper River king...salmon with buerre blanc sauce. At $30, it was a steal! I would have wished for more than two spears of asparagus to go with it, but the salmon was buttery soft and delicious. My wife had a ground meat stuffed eggplant. It had some Middle Eastern spices and was also tasty. We'd come back for more.More

WAY Overpriced. Food was bland and not worth what they charge for it. We made a reservation for 5 adults and 2 kids and we got there and they had 3 chairs and 2 high chairs set up in a small little table , shoved...in a weird little area. So we had to squish 7 people in this tiny area. Not comfortable. Paid $16 for my daughter for some bland pancakes , scrambled eggs that tasted like water and fruit that they didn’t even bring out. GROSS. Would not come back. My meal was the same. bland bland bland. Eggs were gross. Sausage was weird. Bacon was flimsy and odd. It was just bad.More

Great find on Phinney Ridge.... had spinach salad starter, lentil soup, and olive tapenade. Best spinach. Wife says lentil soup is outstanding and the tapenade superb. The wild salmon is prepared with the utmost care and the taste is great. The jidori chicken was cooked...to perfection and seasoned well. All in all an exceptional dining experience and a real surprise on Phinney. Highly recommended place to dine with real class and outstanding service. A must dine when you’re in the area..... rather a great destination for fine dining in Seattle. Love Ada’s.More
