“Suprisingly good”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Need to say first that i am a great fan of good french cuisine (including the M-star ones), and this restaurant certainly has some good staff in the kitchen. They found a perfect mix of local ingredients and french taste. Try the ceviche or the ravioli with white oister for starters, or order the sea brass (main course) and see how it is filleted.
The white Galil wine (israeli) comes very close to a 100% rolle whine (matured on oak) from the Provence - it goes perfectly with all fish dishes. Also, the staff was friendly and accurate. If I'll come back to this city, I will most certainly go here again. Reading this review, you might think I am working there or that I own the place. Wish i did :-)

“Mediterranean fine dining at it's best”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

I was invited to Adom and I must say this was a very unique experience, both because of the food and because of the executive chef, Michael Katz. First of all, Michael was awarded a title "Master Chef of Belgium", and worked as a teacher in Cordon Bleu institute in London. His dishes are sophisticated, yet very "down to earth" and involve Mediterranean elements and ingredients, which give you a unique culinary experience.
The gnocci was absolutely gorgeous, rizotto with lamb was surprising, a salad which was a fusion of classic capresa and panzanella salads - a VERY interesting combination... the meat - beef fillet mignon - was served on a roasted marrow bone, which created quite a stunning presentation, and the doneness degree was perfect.
Deserts also combined classic contemporary french elements, like peaches cooked in white wine, with Mediterranean marzipan, which, served in a kadaif "nest" with vanilla and pistachio ice cream, was the grande finale of the dinner experience.
Location & entourage - the restaurant is located at Jaffa st 31, very authentic Jerusalem court, and the entourage is taking you back to the romantic wine cellars, with certain medieval strike.

“Just what we wanted”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

Our family group of six was shown to a comfortable table by an attractive and friendly waitress. Our requests which usually began with "Can you ...." were always answered with "Of course." Our dinners were uniformly good and I would recommend Adom without hesitation.

“An Excellent Jerusalem Restaurant”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Adom is located towards the end of the Feingold Courtyard, just of the Jaffa Road in central Jerusalem. A reservation is needed, the restaurant being very popular among Israelis and visitors alike. It belongs to the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs. It also has a bar area that seemed to be quite popular.

Inside the restaurant the guests can enjoy a very familiar, but at the same time relaxed atmosphere. This restaurant is not kosher. The menu itself is rich, with many pastas and risottos, as well as lamb, chicken and beef dishes. Besides the standard menu they also offer some specials of the day. The wine list is impressive and has many good Israeli wines which the personnel is happy to recommend.

I enjoyed one of the best good cheese raviolis of my life there. The saute'ed shrimps were also tasteful, but I regret not having tasted many of the meat dishes. The desset menu is rather traditional and international, but also specialities like "Adom pavlova" and "Kadaif basket" are offered. It was a pleasure to have a good dinner at Adoms and I look forward to my next visit there.

“Very good and open on Shabbat”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Main reason for choosing the place was it was open on Friday night (hence not kosher). Food was very good and atmosphere as well as service were very good as well.
