We went here prior to a concert and the restaurant certainly lived up to it's outstanding reputation. Also my nice martini as a starer was perfect as was the quality of the food and the excellent service. Going back here again !!!!!!!!!

As usual my husband had no clue where to go for our anniversary dinner. Ella is my 'go to' place-yes even last minute preparation like 2 hours before when I hear my husbands panic over the phone. lol. Something new (or new experience for me) that Ella started doing that I find above and beyond. On the table next to... More

What a fun place to try out on our anniversary. Reservations were a must. Price-yes, filling-yes, good eats--definitely! Friendly and knowledgeable service with delicious food. I had the Little Gem Lettuce salad and Mesquite Grilled Beef Tenderloin for my entree paired with a glass of Resolute Red Hills Cabernet Sauvignon. Husband enjoyed the Hatch Chili and Cheddar soup (it is... More

We came here with 4 couples for my birthday dinner in September and dinner was fabulous! I had the spanish paella special which did not disappoint. The portion was large and it was positively delicious. There was a lot of seafood in it and a nice crust to the rice on the pan bottom. It was seasoned perfectly. Our waiter,... More

This is the 3rd time I have had dinner at Ella. Each time has produced the same results. The food is OK, not bad just OK but not good for the value. The atmosphere is nice the service is very good but the food is sub-par. There are so many other wonderful options in Sacramento now that I say 3... More

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.
