Dinner at Ella's was a great experience. The service was wonderful and the food was excellent. I enjoyed a beet salad and salmon for the main course. With one drink my share of the bill was $75, which is a bit high in my book. However, if you are interested in a great dining experience in Sacramento, be sure and... More

We were looking for a place to relax, we wanted good food and a great bar list. We found it in Ella. The Valet parking is a great add on. The interior design immediately gets your attention and takes a large space and makes it a series of warm areas. We arrived with no reservation at 8:30 pm, meet quickly,... More

Their gin and tonic made with powdered quinine instead of typical tonic is dryer than usual but more complex. Also had a pretty good Vesper without much prompting. Bar staff was quick and hospitable. Drinks were expensive but good. Lots of vodka cocktails on the menu.

I met up with two out-of-town friends in the heart of downtown within walking distance of the CA State Capitol at this trendy restaurant for dinner. We shared scallops & pasta & salad & wine. Prices are a bit steep, but the ambiance is fantastic, wait staff knowledgeable and the food is delicious. If your visiting the downtown area this... More

Went to Ella's for a birthday dinner with wife, daughter and son-in-law. Hear great things, so my expectations were very high and unfortunately not quite met. Food was good but not exceptional. Device was just OK as was the atmosphere. Did not feel that Ells's lived up to it excellent reputation or was it worth the cost of the evening.

Love, love, love Ella! One of our favorites before or after attending a theater event. A little noisy, but great food beautifully presented, excellent service, and casually beautiful décor.

This is where I wish I could give a half star in these reviews. A group of us went to Ella the other night to take advantage of their great happy hour specials. The food was top notch, eliciting OMG's from the entire table. One of the best steak tartare I have ever tasted, incredible pork belly, tuna crudo -... More

Love Ella! This is one of my favorite places to go on a date-night-with-my-husband. Everything on the menu is delicious and home made. If you want a pure, clean, healthy eating this is the place for you.
