Outstanding Mexican food! Table side guacamole so you can customize the ingredients and spice level. Guacamole is usually a challenge for us as we don’t eat corn chips, but here we were able to get jicama and plantain chips. Best margarita I’ve had in a long time, they have an extensive tequila collection. Food was delicious. Service was outstanding, from the host to the server to the manager who stopped by twice to make sure we were happy. Can’t wait to return and try some other items from the menu, and another margarita.

SO LOUD. We came in for an early dinner with my three year old and even sat up front and could hear the mariachi band very loudly up front. The guac and chips were great, the chicken tortilla soup was very spicy and broth forward. Not creamy. The salmon is typically my favorite but it was a little bland this time. Great for my toddler- he loved it!!! Overall it’s a pricey Mexican place in my opinion.... and not totally worth it.

We had our Wedding Rehearsal Dinner at the old restaurant and were super bummed when they closed. We had no idea that they relocated until we found them on Open Table and love the new restaurant. Had a terrific Mother's Day brunch and will be back many times.

Adobo Grill is a wonderful restaurant and the motivation for this nights experience was to send my wife off to Mexico the next day in grand fashion. Love the Mezcal Margaritas.

Very good food and drink but new locatiin is too loud and the ambiance is not as nice as the original. Service was average as waiter made 2 errors likely due to not hearing us well.

The guac made at table side was very good. The mahi-mahi Ceviche was awesome! We all enjoyed our meals, and the staff was very attentive.
This is a great place for dinner before going to a show at Second City.

We sat outside as the weather was decent. The food took a very long time to arrive and they kept bringing other people’s orders to our table. Then when they brought my two friends’ dinners, my halibut was still going to be another few minutes. My halibut was delicious and they accommodated my request to substitute the rice with a vegetable.

One of our favorite neighborhood spots!! The waiters are always awesome and the food delicious! One tip: don't order all your food right away! It all comes so quickly that your entree is on top of your appetizer! Otherwise, just an awesome, friendly, consistent, and delightful experience!!
