Saying goodbye to Toronto's 'Best Waiter'!

Notorious service in some of Toronto's high end restaurants has been well documented on this board. However, for some of us fortunate chowhounders who had experienced the fine service of Adley of Splendido, will agree with me that, he must be one of the BEST waiter in town! His presence rendered the whole dining experience complete and perfect! A total joy being looked after by him. I'm sure his leaving the new Splendido will be greatly missed by a lot of us?! Hope he'll return soon to either the new Splendido or Nota Bene!

        With all due respect SC, what is your comment supposed to mean exactly?

        All I can say is that he is one intelligent, hard working, and damn unique person. And I'm sorry that I can't sum him up more eloquently than that-I actually feel that using the word unique in describing him is pedestrian at best. I wish him nothing but the best in all future endeavours.

        And BTW, a couple I met at La Folie in San Francisco recently commented on him-that just gives you an idea of the effect he had on people.

          I'm sorry! But I totally concur with Splendid Wine Snob's posting/comments!
          BTW, for you make that comment of yours, have you actually met or been served by Adley? I have eaten in supposedly 'great service' Michelin 3* restaurants all over Europe, the States, Tokyo and Hong Kong. That being the case, I cannot recall receiving more attentive, professional and friendlier service than what Adley provided at Splendido!!

      2. Any idea if he's returned to S or NB? Would like to experience the magic...
