My husband and I had dinner here last night and it was good. Had 2 tasty meatballs as an appetizer. He ordered the chicken and I ordered the pork for our main dish. The chicken definitely won. We also had the kale salad which was...delicious and potatoes with rosemary. The potatoes were too salty skip those. We could have gotten away eating 1 main dish and sides. We took the lemon blueberry cake home for later, which was also very good. Service was wonderful. I would come back.More

We spent a few days in Nashville and this was our only plan. We loved it. The restaurant was industrial, but warm and inviting. Everything was fresh and delicious - familiar, but elevated. I love trout, and was thrilled to fin$ it on the menu....My husband said that his steak was as good as any he had ever eaten. The service was well-paced and friendly.More

We visited on a Sunday for brunch on our way out of town. Would suggest making a reservation. It filled quickly. It was a buffet brunch with many many options. Delicious. Would love to visit for dinner! Plenty of parking. Good service.

My daughter and I were looking forwarding to trying Adeles. It is walking distance from her apartment. It is large inside and has a nice atmosphere and ambience. However, everything went downhill after the server approached us to take our order and it was a...very odd experience that has never happened before at any restaurant. I ordered a salad that came with anchovy dressing, which I can't palate. So I asked if I could get another dressing and could they please put it on the side. And asked if they can eliminate the breadcrumbs that was supposed to come on it. Waiter said NO! He said that the meals are prepared only as stated on the menu as the Chef believes that changing it in any way will distort the taste of the meal. While I understand his perspective, he must understand that some guests have dislikes and dietary restrictions and by simply asking for a different dressing on the side and to eliminate breadcrumbs is a simple task and doesn't take any extra time to do. Unless the salad was already prepared at the back with the dressing and breadcrumbs already in it. But this would be unlikely. Next onto the main course. I ordered Trout with fingerling potatoes and brussel sprouts. I asked if I could have all veggies and no potatoes, but again the answer was NO. My daughter was too afraid to ask for any substitutions on her meal so ordered everything as it came. Strangely enough, the salad did come with the dressing on the side (although I tasted dressing already in the salad too) and breadcrumbs on the side. The Trout entree was terrible. There was one black ball on my plate that I couldn't figure out what it was. When I cut into it I realized it was a brussel sprout, completely charred and burnt. And just one. The potatoes, that I didn't want, were also extremely charred and burnt and like dried up chips. For a high end restaurant such as Adeles, I was expecting much better service and food. It was a very disappointing evening.More

After learning that this is a JW restaurant, my wife and I had high expectations. We ordered the bruschetta with burrata and were met with a bland appetizer. It plain lacked seasoning, a little salt would have been nice. We arrived shortly before 5 and...were the second party to be seated after the 5:00 opening. With that in mind, it took 1:10 minutes to receive our entrees after being the second party seated, so I wouldn't imagine they were behind at this point. We had the duck and chicken for entrees and JW potatoes and broccolini for sides. Although the duck had a wonderful taste, it was ordered medium rare and was cooked done. Completely gray throughout and not one sign of pink, definitely not medium-rare. The radicchio was seasoned (vinegar ?) so much that it was overpowering and I could not finish it. The chicken was also flavorful but very dry. The JW potatoes were so overcooked they were crunchy beyond the point of being difficult to eat. With the appetizer, both entrees and one side being off, it seemed like the service was lacking the basics. While friendly, our server never did check on us and I had to stop her and ask for a drink refill. We were expecting more from a JW restaurant and feel there are too many places in Nashville to get a better meal in this price range.More

We were very lucky to get into this wonderful restaurant! Service was outstanding. Our server was being trained that evening and her service and attention to detail were spectacular. Our meals were cooked perfectly and presentation very appealing. The restaurant is decorated in Eclectic style....I highly recommend you make reservations to dine.

My family of four was joined by our niece and her boyfriend for dinner here in The Gulch. It's a nice atmosphere if a little dark inside. The dinner choices include fish and meat so my wife and I each ordered NY Strip. Hers was...fine but both my steak and accompanying vegetables were cold. I didn't want to take the time to send it back. Our waitress was kind of aloof and distant anyway and didn't bother to check in with us. Disappointed. Our daughters' and guests' meals were fine.More
