Every aspect of Ella is well done, from initial reception throughout the entire meal. Definitely a place for politicos and business people. You might see a celebrity visiting the Capitol eating here.

Decor, outstanding, staff, professional, yet absent in the right way, they are there yet never interrupt your conversation but just time it perfect to take drink orders and all the way down to holding a napkin to shield you should a drop of wine spill! One of those rare menus where you want to order one of everything (well actually... More

I recently dined at Ella Dining Room & Bar not once but twice during a 3 day business trip to Sacramento. The first time it was a business dinner with a group. The second time it was during "Happy Hour" with a group. The decor is very chic. The service was excellent on both occasions. There is a wide variety... More

Went here to celebrate my wife's birthday. I have eaten at some of the best top restaurants in Sacramento and Ella does not deserve to be mentioned with them. Have you ever ordered your drinks, then your food only to be served your food before drinks come out? The beer/ wine selection is good, the entrees well prepared, but the... More

Ella offers fine dining for foodies at a standard high end price. This restaurant offers a full bar with experienced bar tenders. The atmosphere when entering the dining area is both modern and rustic at the same time. The use of window panels mixed with modern lighting and seating make for a nice combination. The food is tasty and made... More

From the trendy chic decor in the restaurant to the food on the menu. Everything was delicious. We enjoyed a nice family style business dinner and was able to enjoy all the offerings. The staff was patient and helpful. I would definitely enjoy coming here again to dine.

A great restaurant for couples, but is still kid friendly if you can't find a babysitter. One thing I love about this place is their appetizers. Can't go wrong with a few dozen fresh oysters on the half shell with a glass of champagne, bone marrow, steak tartare, etc. They have outside patio seating as well if you're just stopping... More

Our team dined at Ella on Monday night. Our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly, made excellent suggestions. We enjoyed all of his recommendations including the signature Gin and Tonic. BTW, it's beef month and we truly enjoyed the braised tongue. Our food was excellent across the board from beef to scallops and we truly enjoyed the scene. It was an... More
