Adelle's moved some time ago but we have just tried the new location. Service was great and friendly. The food was just as good as I remember and none of us were disappointed. The atmospher is pleasant and quieter than the Wheaton location. We were seated in a corner in the East Room - actually a perfect location. Tucked away... More

Decided to go to Adelle's for dinner with my wife. She had the seared tuna app and I had their risotto. The tuna was good but the risotto was great. For dinner my wife had the short ribs and I had the filet. Both were very good and the filet was spot on for tempature. Dessert was Death by Chocolate... More

We had a quick dinner at Adele's before a Christmas concert in December. We told the waitress about our time constraint and she was awesome to accommodate our plans. Dinner was wonderful and served promptly. The staff is great and the food was delicious!

This was a wonderful experience. There is a large menu of small plate foods, along with several main entrees. I started with a glass of California chardonnay, which was very good. We ordered small plates and we were very impressed. We had a tuna tartar, a type of fries with a pot roast topping that was like poutin and deviled... More

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. Maybe we have such glowing reviews because as a "mom and pop" "Mainstreet USA" establishment, we really care about our guests and the time... More
