The food was great like always. However we were sold to a port wine as a 20 year ruby without being advised that it was a ruby until after he had brought it and pretty much left us no choice but to drink it.
Turns out we had original asked for a 10 year toni and questioned the waiter if he had a 20 because in the me u just showed the 10 year he said he did and then made sure to remo d us how much it was per glass. Which we told him it was fine not an issue. Then when we tried it and realized it did't taste like a 20 year and wasn't toni obviously by the colour we tried to questioned the waiter. He then revealed all of a sudden it was an ancient insinuating not a 20 without saying so by calling it an ancient instead of a 20 year. Very disappointed on how he tried to fool us. His actions were judging a book by its cover because we looked young. He thought he could fool is because we looked young. Very disappointed with that part of the service concerning ordering feo. The wine list using the words just in case the wine list.why couldn't he say here is the wine list. From the begining because we looked young he assumed we didnt know anything about wine or maybe would not spend the money on it. Wow boy was he wrong. That's why never judge a book by its cover. Also bathrooms need to be renovated. We have been there In the past and have never seen the bathrooms in the conditions they were in this time around structurally.

The ambiance, service, wine and not to mention the food were all exceptional. Best grilled squid i've had in Toronto by a mile. We were looking for an intimate evening and we got it, Beautiful private table, just what we were looking for. I highly recommend.

I have always found Adega exceptional. Found is outstanding and the flavours of the 3 risotto dishes are different than any others. Fish without question is fresh and cooked perfectly. The grilled calamari and sardines are the best in town. The staff at Adega is pleasant and the take the effort to make your experience rememberable. If you have room the deserts they are also to die for! Can hardly wait for my next dinner.

We found this Portuguese food absolutely delicious. We both had seafood appetizers and mains, which were lovely. The dishes are not for those who are shy of salt and olive oil. Wish that we had asked the price of the mains—-c. $38.00. Ouch!

Adega is consistently fabulous - you should go!

As always, the warm Portuguese welcome, comfortable dining rooms (I always try to reserve a booth), perfectly curated wine list and menu (and there is also a prix fix dinner as well as multiple specials) were impeccable for a recent dinner I hosted.

The wine list has been upgraded and I look forward to trying a new bottle every time I dine there.

Thanks for another amazing dinner - my out of town guests were impressed and so was I!

I have not lived in Toronto for 17 years, but when I did live here I used to go to Adega often, and loved it. Now that I am back, I was delighted to see that Adega is still here. I brought 4 friends, visiting from the US, to Adega for dinner. We had a round table for 6 (which we had requested), and had a wonderful time. Service from our waiter was superb. He helped us select an excellent Portuguese wine, after first determining what kinds of wines we like. He explained the menu well, and was honest about suggesting entrees that could be shared (we are all seniors and can't eat as much as we used to!). The salads and appetizers were excellent. Mains, including the Catalan fish stew, the herb crusted salmon, and the seafood saffron risotto, were all wonderful. The saffron poached pear was a superb dessert. The design of the restaurant, which includes several booths, helps to minimize noise and make for a comfortable evening. Overall, first class service, wonderful food, and a great ambience. I recommend Adega highly.

One of best dining experiences we have ever had! All food items were sensational, the service superb, and the ambiance and the evening we had there were memorable. With all the restaurant choices in Toronto and only two days in Toronto, clearly one of the best decisions I have ever made! We will return there on our next trip to Toronto!!

Took my girlfriend there for her birthday, amazing service with great food and specials. We sat in a quiet booth and were treated with an amuse bouche, the servers were very helpful in recommending their great selection of wines to go with our food. Amazing portions and great tasting food.

This is an upscale restaurant that specializes in portuguese seafood. My wife and I went for our 31st anniversary dinner. The food was good, my shrimps slightly overcooked. My wife had scallop alfredo which was outstanding. The service was good.

Top quality Portuguese seafood, professional and courteous service, elegant decor, clean. All around a perfect experience. Would be ideal for an intimate couple’s dinner. I wouldn’t want to see a family with kids there; it would spoil the ambiance.

We celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary at Adega Restaurante. Our table was in a secluded enclave of the restaurant. The ambiance was romantic, the wine selection impressive, and the food delicious. The service was friendly and professional. Adega Restaurant was also conviently located near the theatre for our evening show - Come From Away. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We are from overseas but visit Toronto frequently over the course of the year. We are often disappointed with restaurants in Canada but we definitely loved our lunch at your restaurant. We immediately recommended it to some friend in Toronto.
