My husband and I got a recommendation for this rustic chateau on the edge of Berkeley campus as one of the only sit-down restaurants within walking distance of our hotel. The large dining room had a fire burning in the large fireplace and no background music. In our early 30's, we were by far the youngest patrons.
The menu, while limited, was all perfectly prepared. The chicken had crispy skin and a delicious sauce, and the garlic bread pudding was divine. My husband raved about the lamb burger and extra-crispy french fries. The pinot noir was quite good as well. We were underwhelmed by the minestrone, but the entrees more than made up for it. The desserts were intriguing (strawberry rhubarb ice cream), but we were too full.
The service was very attentive and knowledgeable, although the atmosphere felt a bit cavernous. Overall Adagia delivered more than we were expecting. Good choice for an easy dinner in Berkeley.
