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

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

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
