My spouse and I visited Adagio for dinner on a Saturday night in early August 2017. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner on Tuesdays through Saturdays (closed on Sundays and Mondays). You can book a table online using the Open Table reservation system or via telephone. The owner of Adagio also operates Sotto Santi, a pizzeria in Southside Bethlehem. You can park in a dedicated surface parking lot (although a few of the spots are reserved for a nearby house/apartment); if the small lot is full, you can also park across Pembroke Road at the Salvation Army.

Adagio opened in September 2015 in the space previously occupied by 530 Grille (and before that, Nueva Lanterna and the Lantern). The restaurant space seats patrons in two different rooms, plus additional seating in the large bar room. A basement banquet area offers a dance floor, separate bar, and private entrance to accommodate large parties and events for up to 150 people, whereas a second-floor private room can hold 100 guests. The interior of the restaurant offers recessed lighting that accents the neutral walls hung with tasteful framed prints and paintings. Both the bar area and the main dining room offer windows that allow light into their respective spaces for a spacious feel.

The Adagio fine-dining menu focuses on seafood, but it also offers a few chicken, pasta, and steak options. Lunch entrees cost approximately $10, whereas dinners range from $15 to $35 and include a salad (Caesar or house) and a choice of a side dish (such as a starch or vegetable). The bar offers a separate tavern menu with casual fare (such as quesadillas and cheesesteaks), and happy hour drink and food specials (including a two-item complimentary buffet table on the night that we visited). Our group ordered four entrees: two orders of crab cakes (which the waitress described as “to die for”, and we agree because they were all lump crabmeat with no filler, lightly sautéed for a slightly crisp exterior), Caribbean jerk tuna served with pineapple salsa, and one of the daily specials (a shrimp scampi pasta dish). The food was nicely presented using quality ingredients.

Having dined at the Lantern years ago, we were pleasantly surprised by the attractive dining room and the tasty higher-end food. Be sure to give Adagio a try!

Date Night. Had a delicious dinner at a quiet hidden treasure of a restaurant. Appetizer was Two amazing fish tacos with deep fried cod in a soft shell with homemade Cole slaw and a creamy topping. ( took one home for a snack tomorrow ). Dinner was sea bass....excellent! Delicate with a buttery flavor and slight crispy outside in a sweet and salty sause. A baked sweet potato drowning in cinnamon butter. Accompanied salad had a unique lime dressing. Excellent service and light beachy atmosphere. No calorie counting tonight! This restaurant is a return to for sure.

Went here with friends after we found out the place we planned to go to was closed because of electrical problems. Our waitress Maria was just wonderful. We ordered drinks and then appetizers. I had a dozen clams that were small but tender and tasty. My entree was Chicken Oscar, the chicken was very tasty with crab meat, asparagus and a hollandaise sauce on it that hit the spot. Everyone else enjoyed what they had. We will return again in the future.
