Made for a wonderful date night. Great food and ambiance.

Lots of small, sharable dishes allowed my wife and I to sample many of their offerings.

The restaurant is good but not great. I enjoyed my dinner with fixed price menu, but I was expecting something more in terms of choice and location. The menu is limited and when we ordered octopus the waiter said that was not available anymore. I found prices higher than the real value and service provided.

Service attentive, efficient, friendly, not intrusive, in a word, excellent. Staff are very customer oriented. Server made good recommendations. Seafood fresh, well-prepared, somewhat pricey.
Actual space could use some updating but not a deal breaker for experiencing a very good meal .

The whole evening was wonderful from being greated on arrival to service food every was fantastic. I chose the fixed price the grilled calamari was fantastic loved the salsa with it. I had the shrimp pasta was amazing. My husband had seafood risotto & I was amazed how much seafood was in the serving. The have a good wine menu. We had dessert & tea coffee. Everyone loved there meals. It was much quieter than most restaurants a real bonus but the food was so fresh & amazing we will be back.

A lovely,friendly restaurant situated in downtown Toronto serving authentic Portuguese food. The service is excellent. I would recommend the sardine starter and certainly the grilled Octopus, it was so tender and so tasty. We would highly recommend this restaurant and if we are ever back in Toronto I look forward to another visit

Summerlicious lunch: had the sardines and squid - both did not have good flavours. Also tried my friend's veal, and it was a bit overcooked.

The people who greet you should smile at you. This person had a long face, no smile at all. Waited too long for the appetizers. The veal cutlet that I have ordered was below standard, chewy, hard to cut. Veal cutlet is not a Portuguese dish and if you cannot make a decent tasting dish, do not put it on your menu.

We did not realize we would be restricted to the Summerlicious Menu when we reserved. First courses and desserts were very good, can't say the same for mains. The veal was tough and rubbery, the Dorado was fishy. Disappointed for a restaurant where we've experienced exceptional meals in the past.

First time dining with a friend to celebrate both of our birthdays. Great service from Ricardo and team, nice food selection on their Summerlicious menu. Enjoyed our wine selection. Very pleasant atmosphere after the larger groups left. Would try Adega again.

Made the reservation on the recommendation of friends and based on Google reviews. Was not expecting Summerlicous menu. The grilled sardines was delicious, but my friend,s soup was barely warm. For mains,Two of us had the Veal Scallopini which was very tough and the third diner said the Tiger Shrimp had no flavour. The service was excellent, however the food was very disappointing.

Best "new" restaurant we tried for Summerlicious, the service was European style ( efficient, subtle and attentive), the octopus and pork to die for, great wine list. Will definitely go back for the full menu.
