We went to Ella the Saturday before Valentine's day with no reservation. They were booked but offered us a spot at communal tables - no reservation needed for those. The waiters were instantly attentive despite being super busy. Drinks, appetizers and meals were served with excellent timing - not so fast so that were feeling rushed, not too much time... More

The best boulevardier I have had. Not expected but the spot had a unique vibe and decorated like a high end hipster place. Will go back again.

My husband and I stumbled on this place when he was getting fitted for his suit next door. The place was fancy and we weren't sure if our attire was up to standards but we were greeted warmly.

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.

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
