Great restaurant ... CreativeGreat restaurant ... Creative menu .....
Excellent food and service.....nice decor6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place! Have neverLove this place! Have never had a poor meal here. The food is fresh and well-prepared, and they are very acommodating to special requests, It's in a shopping center, but once you step inside you are transported to a very different place. Can't comment on the bar scene, but I noticed a long list of craft beers.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightfulWe have had the pleasure of dining at Ellas many many times and have found every aspect of our experience delightful.
We highly recommend it to friends and look forward to many more exciting evenings with Ella's exceptional meals and friendly service.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you love good food,then you have to try this place! James Beard and Julia Child would have adored it. Every dish is imaginatively prepared with the best local and house-made ingredients (they smoke their own bacon and create their own ice creams). Service is caring and professional. Not only that, the bar and dining room, and private dining room are all beautifully decorated. Speaking of the bar, every customer at the bar was raving about their cocktails, all house specialties. (Never tried any so have to rely on their judgements.) All in all, an enchanted evening and good value.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMeclectic tastesthe everyday menu is limited, but their specials are quite numerous. The chef is adventurous and we both enjoyed our meals. Be forewarned... it is pricey.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMService was outstanding...The service was impeccable for our party of 8. I only wished the food matched it. Although good, I expected it to be great based on the excellent service and atmosphere. Overall, it was a nice experience, and kudos to the staff.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA great dinning experienceMy second trip to Ella's was delightful. Creative menu with something for every palate (and wallet). Food was prepared expertly. Service was excellent. Nice list of wines by the glass. Best biscuits I've ever had. Highly recommend for nice dinner out with the family as well as special occasions.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and excellent serviceA nice assortment of food that is different from the usual fare. They also have standards and old favorites, all of which are good. The wait staff was very attentive and pleasant. The ambience is nice but is also casual. I would certainly recommend this restaurant .5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways have a wonderful andAlways have a wonderful and positive experience at Ellas !! Entire family loves going there - never had poor service, food or general atmosphere !! Always great fun !!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was Main Line RestaurantThis was Main Line Restaurant week and used this menu. For the first course I had a beet salad. For the second course I ordered a reuben sandwich but also came with another salad on the plate. Too much salad. Upon leaving The hostess asked if everything was okay. I explained about the salad, which Ashe said someone complained about the previous day. She said the waiter was to give us a choice of French fries, which he did not do. I have even to Ella's many times and was never disappointed.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Ella's. Back for my thirdLove Ella's. Back for my third time and can't say enough about the place! Food is great! Service is great! Ambiance is just right. Wish it was closer to West Chester!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectionService is impeccable and the food truly is outstanding. Entrees were scallops for me and cassoulet for my guy. The specials list is long, by design. Perfection. We'd had drinks and appetizers at Ella's previously (cheese board, shrimp, red bordeaux)--at the bar, or a small table in front. Really enjoyed the atmosphere, which is relaxed and friendly but at the same time clearly supported by very high standards, and high quality of food and service. On our first visit, the owner was at the next table and was very solicitous, making sure we were happy and taken care of, as if we were valued guests in his home. We are fortunate to live close by; we'll return often.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant in Wayne/Devon areamy husband and I moved to Wayne PA last summer. We found this gem, Ella's tucked away in a grocery store strip of shops and were pleasantly surprised at how lovely it was, once we stepped inside. That was just the start --- the menu is incredible and the food is outstanding. This is our favorite dining spot, our go-to place for special occasions and as far as we are concerned, the best restaurant in the area!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNICE!Second visit. Food and service was very good. Very appealing, pleasant ambiance. Just a really nice place to have dinner. I haven't been to Ella's for lunch, but will certainly give it a try. We will definitely dine there again.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe lunch menu is interestingThe lunch menu is interesting and very reasonably priced. Terrific ambience.

experience.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMEntrees were good and wellEntrees were good and well portioned. Appetizers were good except the Caesar salad which was drenched in dressing. Server (Denise) was very well versed in the menu and attentive without being intrusive. Very Man Line 60's crowd3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place! Since it is aGreat place! Since it is a bistro I was expecting something that was a bit more relaxed so I wore blue jeans. I was still relaxed but felt a bit under dressed for the food I was presented with. There waere a few people at the bar who were wearing jeans as well so I wasn't the only one but this place turned out to be a bit more upscale; fine dining at a reasonable cost. That is not a bad thing.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat lunch spot!The food and atmosphere are great. I was glad we sat down at 11:45 for lunch because by 1 pm when we left the tables were mostly filled.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really loved the environment.We really loved the environment.
