Success! Thanks for posting your review of Adagia Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

salty food, oily salads

i've been there twice, and have had badly (and weirdly) seasoned food both times. Like everyone else says, their lettuce is consistently wilted and oily with little other flavoring, and their foods are oversalted. The first time I went was with a party of about 14, and I talked to about 5 of us later and ALL of us had SUPER SALTY food. For the record, the first time I had the 'apricot salad' (not feeling too hungry f... view more

Tests your patience..

We had lunch at Adagia on a Sunday before a matinee performance at Zellerbach Hall. I had searched on-line for places to have lunch and thought Adagia sounded perfect..It was not! We were seated quickly, but it took quite a while for a waiter to come to the table. Once we ordered, we waited another 10 to 15 minutes to get our drinks (waiter forgot to order one), salads (overdressed & wilted), and bread. The hambu... view more

A good place for dinner before a lecture

This is our second visit and the food was better than the first time. The new crab parfait was full of interesting flavors in each bite and the lamb shank was wonderfully braised with delicately seasoned light sauce over a bed of tasty white beans. The service was attentive and the wine list was small but reasonably priced.

This place looks, sounds, tastes like a castle. The food reminded my date of the movie Shrek, where the big ogre tears meat off a colossal bone in savagery. Parking was a nightmare. Apparently, you get free parking at the Bancroft hotel pkg lot, but BOY IS IT HARD TO FIND. If you do end up going, A HUGE TIP: across from Adagia on College, there is a cafe. It is right next to the cafe going down Bancroft. Very obscure... view more

After reading great reviews of this place, I was looking forward to trying it out -- what a disappointment! We had tuna that was overcooked almost to the point of being inedible, and risotto oversalted again almost to an inedible state. I never send things back, but I came really close this time -- for these prices, I expect a dinner I can eat! Very weird, very disappointing -- won't be going back.

I'm amazed that Adagia is near the university

I never would have thought that a place with food this good would be near a university. Frankly, the dinner prices are far more than a college student could pay. The food is delectable. The sweet potato gnocchi with rabbit sugo is comfort food at its finest-- earthy, sweet, and savory served piping hot with the gnocchi pan seared (not mushy). The homemade sorbet trio with macerated figs was oustanding. BYOW will incu... view more
