Ella is a terrific restaurant. There are a number of Sacramento restaurants that are equal or near equal to San Francisco's finest dining restaurants. Ella is surely one of them. I suggest that you read other reviews - Ella is a beautiful restaurant with excellent food.

Had the pleasure of dining here last night. The bacon and bourbon menu items are out of this world good. If you are a bourbon rookie the best bank for your buck is a lovely glass of WL Weller 12 year. You cannot go wrong with that.

This restaurant, right down the block from the Hyatt Regency is superb. It is very spacious, casually elegant, with a wonderful selection of menu items. Be prepared to spend some money however. You won't be disappointed!

We made reservations for a family event on a Saturday. It was good that we had as the restaurant was busy. The food was delicious and the service just right.

We have walked by Ella's for years as we attended events at the Community Theatre. When we finally decided to try it for lunch, it was at the recommendation of friends who think it might be the best of downtown restaurants. The service was professional and attentive. I had the shrimp louis, which was bedded on a ring of baby... More

With excellent food and outstanding service, Ella is the perfect place to celebrate a very special occasion, or have a more casual happy hour experience. I will be dreaming of their seafood plateau for months!

Do not miss this place! I read about it on Thrillist and I'm glad I made a point to try out Ella. Take advantage of Happy Hour from 3-6. The Cucumber Lavender Collins was the best drink I have ever had! It's was so refreshing!

The men wanted beers and it took a while to decide, since they don't carry certain beers that they wanted. I had a Cosmopolitan cocktail and it was very strong. My other friend had a "mojito" that was supposed to be "special'. It was terrible, I urged her to return it but she did not.

Every other month or so my friends and i gather for happy hour. Ella has always been the go to place. It is very convenient for some of my friends who take public transportation and for us who has had too much to drink and opt to stay in for dinner. I love it. We always come out of here... More
