***OPEN FOR DINE-IN AND TAKE OUT***

A chef-driven paradise wrapped in a small neighborhood vibe. Ada’s has been a staple in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood for years. However today, the new Ada’s is a creation stemmed from a lifelong dream of Executive Chef Ayhan Barlas. With a completely revised menu of American classics prepared with a European flair alongside Chef Ayhan’s native Turkish favorites, your senses will thank you!

We are firm believers that the freshest ingredients create the best dishes, and that things that grow together, go together. So, in keeping with that mantra, we pride ourselves on using as many local purveyors as possible to best keep our dishes in line with the true spirit of the finest cuisine the Pacific Northwest has to offer.

Here you'll find a modern, warm and romantic dining experience in an elegantly casual atmosphere. We also have a great bar and lounge area with a wonderful Happy Hour.

When you dine with us, you’ll feel like part of the family.

    Great pre-theatre dining experience. Food was excellent. Plates served were beautiful and delicious. We had an excellent White wine from Turkey to go with our seafood. Service was very good and attentive. I would definitely return and recommend this restaurant.

    Waited a bit to be greeted by hostess, who seemed visibly annoyed after I had to track her down. Waited at least five minutes to be greeted by the server. Appetizers were fine, but the server asked us after they were all but finished if we had placed our entree order, we hadn’t. Also ordered a salad, which they placed on the table without removing the appetizer plates. We were still eating the salad when the entrees arrived, and they got the order wrong. We were hungry and it was pretty apparent that they just wanted to close. We didn’t get our waters refilled until we were almost done eating. I’ve worked in the restaurant industry for 16 years, and appreciate it when staff, both front and back of the house, provide a quality dining experience. This was not that. I’m also understanding when the experience is something less than ideal, but this was unacceptable. I wouldn’t recommend this place, or return, and I’d be ashamed to work there if this is what their patrons can routinely expect. You work hard for your money and your time is valuable, do not waste either here.

    Absolute delight - from the food through the service. Seating was comfortable, staff polite and informed, and the menu offerings are a little unusual and at the same time comforting. Flavors and textures are rewarding. Definitely going back.

    I brought a group of out of towner's to Ada's, hoping for a night of good food, ambience, drinks and laughter. We were not disappointed. First, the food was absolutely delicious. We stuck primarily to the Turkish dishes based on the advice of the hostess and chef. Things were across the board fantastic. Amazing textures and spices, all with a light touch. The meats were succulent and my eggplant was divine. Throughout the meal the servers and chef pleasantly checked in giving advice and a fun and humorous air to the evening. We spent 3 hours there, but never felt rushed. In the end we ordered almost all the desserts and left pleasantly full, but also that we'd experienced something truly special. My only regret was not being able to sample more of the menu. I will definitely be back to rectify that in the future. Thanks very much Ada for exceedingly all our expectations.

    Last hurrah family dinner before sister returned to the UK. Ada’s was excellent as always. We ordered several appetizers,salads, the scallops and tenderloin shush kebab paired with a bottle of Turkish white and red wines. Everything was delicious! We believe that Ada’s is the hidden gem of Seattle. Our servers were attentive and delightful. One even read our daughters Turkish coffee dregs for her at the end. It was a very fun evening.

    Ada is a great example of why I love to visit Seattle. The staff is knowledgeable and exceptionally friendly (Chef even stopped by table!). The food is both tasty and interesting. We ordered Turkish plates because that was new for us. The decor is pleasing and classy. Ada is pricey, but well worth it, especially for special occasions.

    Unfortunately we didn’t have a great experience, especially considering the price. Truffle French fries were greasy and not fried properly. We got the fish, it was cooked nicely but quite bland, along with rice that was not fully cooked. I’m not sure we’ll return, but if so I would try the meat dishes.

    We had a wonderful birthday celebration for me step father. The food and service were amazing! We especially enjoyed the filet mignon, that was cooked a perfect medium rare. A few other standouts were the burrata, the sea scallops and the siskabob! Honestly it was all good. Highly recommend this neighborhood gem!

    Everything we ordered was exceptional. There was three of us, and we shared a starter, each had a different entrée and each a different desert. We all like to share, so I can attest we all liked everything. Like so many others, they are understaffed, so service was slow but still good. The place isn't cheap, but the quality justified the price.

    Absolutely AMAZING! Everything we ordered was divine!! We're from LA and let us tell you we will be coming back just for the food. We ordered the goat cheese w/ pistachios appetizer, the Turkish lentil soup (I forgot the actual name), the blackberry mojito, their beef skewer plate, and their melt in your mouth (literally) wild caught salmon plate. Let me tell you that this was the BEST salmon I have ever had! Everything we ordered was truly amazing. And EXTREMELY AFFORDABLE for the food, service and presentation! Do yourselves a favor and eat here! Their staff is wonderful, the ladies there are great and are on top of keeping your table clean and replacing your utensils as you finish each plate!

    Our experience was delightful the meal delicious and the service top notch. We were originally seated at a table that was close to the kitchen and ice machine and it was noisy so they kindly moved us. That service was so good the server was very knowledgeable which helped because none of us were familiar with Turkish food. The flavors were wonderful the scalloped potatoes were divine. The profiteroles were almost as good as my mothers :-). A really excellent meal in all.

    The service took 15min to get our first drink order and was a bit slow from there on. The server was nice, however the quality of food was NOT worth the financial cost. For $125, we got two glasses each of sub par white, dolmas, a soup, a vegetable stuffed eggplant and stuffed pasta with meat. The stuffed pasta appeared to have been frozen and was certainly not fresh as well as the eggplant looking like it was reheated. I was very hopeful that this would be a wonderful experience, however I walked away spending $125 and left the leftovers intentionally at the restaurant. Very disappointed and wish this wasn’t the case.
