    Wow. What can I say. From start to finish this was fine dining at its exceptional best. Friendly and attentive staff but not intrusive. The quality of the food was outstanding. Birthdays are for making memories and this was a memory I will not forget.

    It was an emotional return to Birmingham and Adams. Having been away working in the USA for the last year. You forget how good the food is in Europe compared to most of North America. Why this restaurant hasn't been awarded a second Michelin star to go with its first one is beyond me. We have been to many establishments over the years and this is up with the best. The tasting menu is a journey of variations, creativity, art and sublime taste. The food is matched by one of the best wine lists in the UK. The restaurant is serviced by a multitude of well presented knowlegable, caring and friendly staff. Interior is classy and we love the paintings by local artists depicting the evolving skyline of out city.

    My first time here with my son for a birthday lunch, wow truly amazing from the service on stepping through the door, to the truly sublime food eaten, I can honestly say this had been one of the nicest meals I’ve ever had. It is not hard to understand how this young chef and his team have won so many awards and for anyone who gets the opportunity to train here and learn to produce food of this standard then go for it. The staff are smartly dressed, knowledgeable and very attentive. The small bites between courses absolutely delicious and the whole experience just wonderful. Thank you for making my birthday lunch with my son very memorable and I will be back.

    The food was unique, incredible and simply to die for. We had the 9-course tasting menu and everything I tried was bursting with flavours and a completely new experience. The service was better than perfect and I'll definitely be coming back for more!

    The food and the service at this stunning restaurant never fails to impress. It truly deserves its standing as one of the very best and a credit to our city. The nine course menu coupled with less expensive the flight of wine (£65) could not have been more delicious or better matched. Not our first time here and nor will it be our last. Certainly a very special experience to be enjoyed and savoured.

    Excuiste fine dining meal on the chefs table with good friends. We had the tasting menu with accompanying wine flight. Every dish was perfectly cooked, was packed full of flavours and beautifully presented. Each course was clearly explained by the chef and accompanying wine by the sommelier, which when perfectly together. Well worth a visit.

    A fantastic Birthday night surprise. We have the taster menu it was amazing every dish was packed full of flavour. The intro plates and amuse bush were all incredible. It is not cheap but it is certainly value for money. All the staff were extremely attentive and food quality you just don’t get anywhere else in Birmingham. I would recommend a visit here.

    Wonderful Saturday lunch, 6 of us went for lunch and chose the 3 course menu, there were several choses for each course as well as some unexpected extra small plates in between courses, one of our party is gluten intolerant and they were catered for, and were given a gluten free option from the menu and did not have to chose from a different menu. The service was excellent, attention to detail was lovely such as holding our chair after visiting the rest rooms as well as explaining each course including the differences with the gluten free option. The wine choices were lovely and the sommelier was very knowledgable and helped us chose wines that would go with several of the food options on the menu. A wonderful experience.

    We had the honour of an evening on the chefs table for a works Christmas trip. WOW!! We had the 8 course tasting menu with the accompanying wines. I would recommend the wines to anyone visiting as the sommelier really has done a marvellous job with his choices. All the food was faultless with my particular favourite being the fallow venison, this was perfectly cooked and looked as good as it tasted.

    Birthday treat. Beautiful decor. Service staff were very attentive but not in your face. Food was out of this world. Flavours just kept coming. Every sense was stimulated. Had a lovely rosè wine from Devon to compliment. Would highly recommend this delightful restaurant.

    The place is well decorated and appropriately designed for a restaurant of this class. We were upgraded to the Chef's table as there was a late cancellation. We were taken downstairs to a large "U" shaped table next to the kitchen. There were only 7 of us so there was plenty of space at the table. We could see our food being prepared and cooked before our eyes. The staff were very attentive and friendly. They explained each dish as they were being served. The presentation of the food is better than some other Michelin starred restaurants. The food was lovely, especially the scallops and the beef. I thought the pigeon was rather rare and the taste and smell was too strong for me but I hardly ever eat pigeon.

    There are some restaurants where everything works, the food has you smiling with pleasure and you decide immediately that you will return, and our reaction to our meal at Adams was precisely that. The welcoming dining room and reception and then the top snacks got us off to a very good start, beginning with smoked apple gougère, super marinated tuna with spiced mooli and watermelon, and then good contrasts between horseradish ice cream, red cabbage and lovely single estate olive oil drops. The first course showed the best of scallops, one lime cured, the other seared, great with salted almonds and beet discs. Getting an umami dish just right and properly balanced takes some skill, and the following course demonstrated how it can be achieved, with a really clever dish of raw shiitake mushrooms with chive oil, terrific mushroom ketchup, enoki tops, delicious smoked eel and some contrasting apple making for an umami wonder. The next course was cod - perfectly cooked fish with spot-on mussels, kohlrabi, a champagne infusion tickling the palate and a beautiful and unusual caviar sauce. No let down there, then. On we went to really flavourful quail with a wonderful jus, quail liver topped with a nut crumble and some delicate baby parsnips, and the game season continued with a venison dish which showed a great deal of skill in the kitchen using the loin to demonstrate the sheer class of the meat and adding to the enjoyment with a perfect black pudding, faggot, blackberry sauce, meaty hen of the woods mushrooms and a lovely contrast of roasted Jerusalem artichoke. Even the palate cleanser, or transition as it said on the menu, was worth the visit - puffed wild rice with almost a sweet green Thai curry of Alphonso mango on top of coconut ice cream - remarkable! The dessert showed just as much imagination as the rest of the meal being a deconstructed tiramisu with top chocolate (85% Valrhona abinao) done three ways, one of which was deliciously boozy, all with a sprinkle of coffee dust. A lovely way to finish a truly satisfyingly outstanding dinner. We were also expertly guided by the sommelier, Lionel, through the wine list which not only offered a good selection of wines by the glass but also a number of very good half bottles, one of which, a Sassicaia, we were unable to resist and which made for the perfect accompaniment to the super venison. We dined in two one-star restaurants in Birmingham on this occasion, and as far as we are concerned the number of stars was right but the allocation was not. We do not consider it going too far to say that Tom Shepherd is hard on the heels of his ex mentor, Sat Bains, and both the food and his well-drilled front-of-house staff were up with the best in the country.

    Everything about the restaurant and experience was top class. We have never treated ourselves to such a meal before and we weren't completely convinced that we would enjoy it sufficiently to justify the expense. We did enjoy it sufficiently though. It was a great experience. The taster menu was superb from start to finish,

    We had an amazing time at the Chef’s table. The food was superb and we tasted many things we wouldn’t normally have ordered, broadening our horizons and appetite for new things. The whole experience is fantastic and I recommend it to anyone celebrating a special occasion. The wine flight was great, really enhancing the experience too. Superb.

    Had the most wonderful night at Adam's. Tasting menu was innovative and stunning and service was incredible. This is without doubt one of the best restaurants we have ever eaten at and we will definitely return. Thanks Adam's for giving us a very special evening.

    Lunchtime visit with friends,our fourth visit since the restaurant opened,we weren’t disappointed! This restaurant has improved on our every visit ( from a very high standard in the first place ). A very busy service didn’t distract from the high quality food and service we received ,every dish of the tasting menu was delightful both in presentation and taste. We’ll definitely be back for a fifth visit, I’m not sure how they can improve on today’s offerings but we’re looking forward to finding out.

    Claims to be the best restaurant in Britain’s second City, and I would not dispute that. Fine dining, good service and an extensive wine list. Worth the one Michelin star it currently holds but needs to kick-on otherwise it will drift and eventually be a good mundane restaurant, rather then fufil its full potenial.
