Nice surprise – Didn't know quite what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised from the very first taste...their coffee is the best I have ever had (they import it from Italy)...the bread is absolutely delicious (they make it in-house) and the food is fabulous....the presentation is perfect....the music is wonderful...not so loud that you can't talk to someone and not the hip-hop junk that is played in other restaurants...the restrooms are really clean and the whole establishment is exquisite....the quality is obvious.
Adriatic Grill was a great find in the South Central Tacoma area! Atmosphere is great, crowd was younger and cooler. Ultimately could have 4 stars, but at the end of the day it has to be about the FOOD, right?! The meal was worth the price, but wasn't incredible. Would definitely go back to have fun with friends and family over a good meal and some drinks!
Best restaurant in T-Town – Perfect food, consistently made, great wine, wonderful ambiance for family or intimate dining. You've got to try it!!
It's the best kept secret around. i have friends that come from Redmond, North Seattle, and Kennewick to eat at Adriatic.
Love this restaurant when in Tacoma! – Whenever I'm in tacoma, i make sure to stop into the Adriatic Grill. The food is so authentic, the wine is delicious and perfectly paired, and it is so friendly! I would curl up in ball and live in the gnocci at this place if given the opportunity!
Great Food and Great Atmosphire – I really enjoy the Adriatic. Tacoma is lucky to have an Italian joint that serves really good good and serves up mean drinks too. I have to say there are a lot of good looking people in the bar! Tacoma peeps, go to the Adriatic.
Great, locally owned restaurant – I really enjoy Adriatic Grill. They have happy hour all day on Sunday and you can get a pizza for about $6!!! Great deal. Staff is knowledgable and pretty friendly. Try some of their other dishes besides the great Italian food. Steaks are very good.
Good main stream Italian – It was a Friday night and we only had a wait of about a couple of minutes. We only had a farely short wait for our appetizers. I did notice at this time that the wait staff there are in a hurry to get what you need but do not pay a lot of attention to what you are saying. It wasn't just our waitress but the server who served us our food never really listened to us. It was like we were in a bad relationship with no communication. When we were servved our dishes we asked for cheese and he totally ignored us. We put it off to he didn't hear us but it kept happening. We asked for cheese again and finally got it on the third try. Later we asked for a refill of tea, We thought she heard but every time she came back she kept coming back with cheese. She did this three times. We though we woud die laughing the third time she brought cheese to our table. We thought maybe when we were saying tea she kept hearing cheese. I din't know why she didn't wonder why we would need so much cheese. Finally we picked up the glass and handed it to her and said , "a refill of tea please".
Our waitress was nice but she needed to pay attention, it wasn't that busy but she seemed to be running around hagard.
The food was good didn't take that long to get our food and our waitress gave us a good laugh. It was a little pricey for such a casual place.
