We had a fantastic waiter, Patrick, who was very attentive and knowledgable. The menu has enough variety to please any diner. The wine list is more than adequate. Two of us ordered the same pasta dish while the other two in our party had fish, one of which was the special for the evening. Desserts were decadent and worth every... More

Always a well prepared, presented, tasty experience. Fish special delicate and balanced with broccoli and crispy oven roasted potatoes. Waiter pleasant and professional, knowledgeable of menu and wine list. Always a very civilized experience.

I love all of their food, this is such a great addition to the neighborhood. The owner, Adelmo is always there. The service is decent when I come in and again, the food is marvelous. The place does get crazy on weekend evenings and they can seem overwhelmed but hopefully they can iron that out soon. I couldn't be happier... More

We were served promptly but not in such as way to make us feel rushed with our pre-dinner drinks or the rest of our food. The wine list is excellent and the dessert (a pumpkin cheesecake) was absolutely delicious.

This was our first dinner at Adelmo's since has moved to its new location. A much improved atmosphere with pastel and white painted walls and a very comfortable sound level (conversational quite). Our meal was cooked and served very professionally. the Dover sole is one of their signature dishes and always good. the calamari is another dish done very well.... More

Setting: Inwood Village in Bluff View, Dallas; Decor: interesting and tasteful; Service: good, but not knowledgeable on wines; Wine List: interesting selection that does not follow the standard distributors, but relatively limited; Meal: my wife had Ruby Trout, and I had Arctic Char. Ruby Trout was very good. Arctic Char was served with a piquant sauce and was not as... More

We have been going to Adelmo's for 25+ years. The move to the new location required a period of adjustment, but it is safe to say that they are back and better than before. The new location has all of the charm and none of the issues from the old restaurant. The food was outstanding tonight and it was fun... More

I wish we had half stars. This was 4.5. The service was ourstanding. The food was terrific except for the appetizer. Mussels were a little big and tough. But the lasagna was amazing...rivaled my Moms. The filet of sole special was exceptional. And we can't say kinder things about Adelmo. He is a consummate restaurantuer.

We made reservations at Adelmos and arrived a few minutes early. This is a very small restaurant, so it has a great intimate but homey atmosphere. We were seated at a tiny table right in front of the door, which had a strong, cold breeze every time the door opened. We immediately asked to be moved to another table, and... More
