    What a let down. We were so excited to go to Adalina but had a bad experience. The drinks are great (except there was a bug in my first one that my friend noticed). The appetizer we ordered was very good. One of my friends ordered chicken with French toast. The chicken was rare and he had to flag someone down to let them know -- because our server never came over to see how the food was. Basically, our server was not good at all - made for a bad dining out. We waited forever for a replacement meal which they charged us for (and later, after explaining how they handled everything so badly, they took it off the check). What we thought would be a restaurant we would go to a lot turned into taking it off our list.

    Great meal. Great scene. Great table. The server started fine but ended weak. She forgot my moms dinner and just seemed overwhelmed and lacked much engagement and personality. She also asked whose birthday it was when my mom had said to keep it on the down low. Detracted from the surprise and wonderful on the house dessert they were kind enough to give us. The manager Phil was great though. I would definitely recommend the restaurant though. A fun scene with amazing energy and phenomenal veal parm.

    I had the Lobster Benny which was very tasty........but almost impossible to cut . I requested a steak knife . They brought a sharper knife, but it was not serrated. Still impossible to cut the over toasted ciabatta. I asked for a serrated knife and was told you don't have any. I certainly will not be returning for a steak at dinner time.

    AdalinaResponded 3 days agoLibby, thank you for your feedback on your recent dinner at Adalina. So sorry to hear that you did not have a 5-star dining experience. We would love to have you back in! We have actually have had this brought to our attention a few times since adding that dish onto our brunch menu, so we are changing the bread on the Lobster Benny this weekend. Hope to see you again soon.

    I’ve been here twice now and the food is impeccable. Too notch service. My first time they seated us at one of the two velour booths in the front despite how busy the restaurant was. You MUST try the beef tartare you will not be disappointed with the presentation nor the taste! The second time, however, when you’re seated amongst the other 90% of diners it is unbearably loud. The tables around us also struggled to hear anything the person across from them said. Also—beware. This is a hotspot for people who are in their 40s but mentally in their 20s. The bar is obnoxious (the crowd, not the bartenders and servers who again do an impeccable job) but the atmosphere is just ruined by the noise and middle aged folks who think they’re in a nightclub.

    Atmosphere is chic and beautiful. Valet service offered but on a Sunday night, I found a spot right across the street. Server was friendly and efficient, great service. I know enough about wine to know I needed a bit of advice the wine list and the sommelier's recommendation was excellent and within my price range. Food was amazing. Try the Branzino, light flaky and delicious with yummy potato straws on top for some crunch. The pesto not pesto will leave you full and happy and wondering why its not green. Highly recommend. Will certainly return.

    best dishes had were the meatballs, the puff pastry with the prosciutto and giant dollup of cheese. hard-pass on their interpretation of chicken and waffles (way too soggy, sweet, and it was cold) and the tasteless flatbread. Nice to have live music playing on a Sunday. We distinctly asked for a table as part of our Open Table reservation with a view/by the windows (which were available and assigned to people who arrived after us) and ended up being seated at an 'interior' table near a busing station. Not the greatest locale but oh-well. Food could have been better. I'd give them another shot and see if it is any better - otherwise, there's so many other options in the neighborhood (and won't have you climbing stairs in darkness - kinda dangerous without proper lighting). Elevator is not in the main entry area, in case you have ADA requirements. Also, there is no one to great you downstairs.

    My reservation was in the dining room and we were stuck near the bar. It was disappointing because we were a group of 5 and could barley hear each other talk. Our server was terrible. She barely came to our table. Provided no recommendations on food. Didn’t really want to wait on us. However, the vibe was great. The food was phenomenal. We all agreed we would come back for the food despite the poor service.
