We have eaten at the Adriatic Grill many times since relocating to the South Sound. However, our recent experience deserves a specific mention. I talked with a staff member about reserving a table for 14 for my husband's 70th birthday dinner several weeks prior to...More

From the Greeting to fair well, Starters to Desert, Crab Cakes to the Chicken Parmesan the Adriatic Grill hit it out of the park. I will definitely be back and highly recommend this fantastic Italian restaurant!

We had some delicious food, but it was a bit heavy. We had the mozzarella wrapped in filo dough with smoky sundried tomatoes to start. I had the prawns and butternut squash, so buttery. Anything that tastes that rich and wonderful can't possibly be healthy....More

We have been coming to this restaurant for years and everything--from food to service to atmosphere--is excellent. It's a family-owned business who strives for excellence. You get what you pay for. The ingredients and preparation are of the highest quality.
