Convenient location to the hotel.

My daughter always wanted to try Ella's, so we had lunch on a warm October afternoon. We were seated promptly at a very nice table, however, the AC was blowing directly on our table, so I asked to be moved. We were then seated at another table with the very same issues.

I have eaten here a few times. The food here is great but I do feel that for the price there our better restaurants in this area. We just went here again for a friends birthday. There was a large group of us and the service was great. We ended up getting the chefs table, which I didn't feel was... More

Description: We were staying in Sacramento for business at the Capitol and after several locals recommended Ella’s for lunch we decided to try it. When you enter into the restaurant you are instantly impressed by the décor and the ambiance. I was struck by the emotion that I knew I was about to have an enjoyable experience. Needless to say,...

Had dinner there last night. We showed up half hour before our reservation and were told that they would find us when our table was ready. We joined in with everyone for happy hour which seems to be a big thing here. Service was fast in spite of the large number of customers here. Wine and oysters were great as... More

Dinning at Ella was extremely convenient because they provide valet service so we did not have to move the car before the show. In fact we just walked backed to the restaurant afterwards. The sturgeon. Was excellent but potato chip with clavier does not work at all. The wine list provided lots of favorites. Service was excellent and they had... More

Excellent meal, excellent service and a great venue. I had dinner with two colleagues at Ella in December. We met for cocktails and then had dinner. The Moscow Mules were perfect! Dinner was equally as good, maybe better, with a good red. I had the lamb and it was cooked perfectly and of good quality. A great experience all the... More

Ella is beautiful. The menu is outstanding: oysters with caviar, smoked fish rillettes, chestnut and wild mushroom soup, a reimagined Caesar salad with white anchovies, beet salad with exotic, just-picked radishes and other delightful vegetables. And the no-buzz cocktails, fruit waters infused with fresh herbs, were lovely. The gin and tonic, made with their house made tonic, was delicious. I... More

My wife and I had dinner at Ella's for the first time in over a year. From the moment we arrived the service was courteous, polite... impeccable. From the valets to the hostess and the waiter, everyone was top notch. The environment is classy without being overdone. As we sat next to the window on a busy, rainy night, I... More
