    First of all, we thought this was a very nice restaurant and the food was very good. We would definitely recommend it. My two complaints - When we got there, it seemed as though the host literally just looked at our special request to sit at a booth. Therefore, there wasn't one available for our reservation so we had to wait at the bar for about 10-15 minutes. Secondly, they ran out of the dessert I ordered. Rather than come back and ask me what I'd like instead, our server just brought me HIS favorite dessert! It was OK, I ate some of it but definitely not what I would have chosen myself. I assumed since I wasn't given a choice it would be at no charge but no, they charged us for it. We thought that was inappropriate.

    A wonderfully enjoyable evening of inventive, delicious food well prepared and served. Chef Jeanne ignores no part of the meal -- from her amuse bouche to her delicious sides to our choice for dessert, the homemade blueberry tart. Fish and meat equally well prepared. And don't not pass up the lobster mac with truffles! Our roaming eyes found much to love at neighboring tables -- incentive to return.

I would highly recommend Ella's. Beware of a pricey menu, well worth the price, but not for everyone. Their website was very helpful.

    Everything ordered by our party was delicious - the pork belly tacos were an outstanding appetizer choice and the lamb chops and scallops were delicious. Nice wine list with choices a bit different than found in other local spots. Service might be a bit pretentious for some, but it would not keep me from coming back. Nice to have a "new" option for Westerly dining.

    Dined on 8/9/2012
    My husband and I are familiar with fine dining in and around NYC and CT, so great food doesn't typically take our breath away... Ella's, however, had that affect! Was it because we were on a lovely vacation in Watch Hill? I don't think so -we dine on holiday frequently. This was an outstanding experience; the delicately thai inspired calamari, the crispy pork belly taco with creme fraiche not sour cream... and scallops swimming with morels so flavorful you were reminded to savor each bite. The wait staff excellent, attentive without being intrusive, well trained and knowledgeable. I am pressed to find anything to detract - perhaps because I want this restaurant to stay around, I might suggest smaller portions at the reasonable prices GO

    Two couples, one from NYC, the other, Boston, weren't sure what to expect but were overwhelmed by the service, the food and the experience. Our waiter was pleasant, informative, but not over-bearing. We chose the 3 appetizer specials (including squash blossoms filled with cheese, lightly tempura-style - which were excellent) and one standard, small fish tacos - outstanding, and the 4 of us shared all. The wine list offered plenty under $60; we chose Cal Pinot for $32 and had two bottles. Three of us had fish as our entree, one had the home-made gnocchi - all superb. Deserts even better. We loved everything about this place. Met Jeanie, the chef - she does a superb job. You should go!

THE CHEF REVISES THE MENU A FEW TIMES A MONTH. SEASONAL ITEMS LIKE SOUPS APPEAR IN THE COOLER MONTHS, WHILE INTERESTING SALADS AND COOL FOODS APPEAR TOWARD SUMMER. TIMING WAS PERFECT, WAITSTAFF ATTENTIVE AND PLEASANT.

    Fabulous food, although the menu was a little all over the place it does provide something for everyone, but it did take us forever to order because we didn't know which way to go! I've never commented about the decor of a place before, but I guess I never noticed what goes in to planning the front of house ambiance in a restaurant because it has always been pleasant. Not that this decor wasn't pleasant, there was just a feeling of disaccord and some lack of vision on someone's part.

The prices, though high, were absolutely worth the quality of the meal (whereas many locations have similar prices but deliver nothing more in terms of quality). Overall, we enjoyed the experience very much and had no complaints to speak of.

The food is amazing, fresh, beautifully prepared and presented in just the right portions. The menu is diverse enough to please everyone and certainly has pleased my husband and I three times now.

    First time visit to Ella's and would go back without hesitation. The bartender, Scott, was a very engaging and mixed a superb drink. Our server, Betsy, was well versed in the evening's specials and was available throughout our meal without being intrusive. Enjoyed the ambience of the dining room and even had an added treat of seeing the town fireworks from our window. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals...scallops, halibut special, chicken and gnocchi...all cooked to perfection and with very fresh ingredients. The most amazing dessert ever....fresh, warm donuts and coffee creme brûlée. We all wanted to lick the plate to get every last morsel!!!

  • Westerly's Newest Fine Dining Spot
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 6/21/2012
    Ella's is the new fine food hot spot in Westerly. It sits near an intersection in an older building. Decor and ambiance are sleek and relaxed. The restaurant's strength is the kitchen where one of the owners, a well-regasrded restaurateur, presides. Dishes we have tried during two visits are imaginative and well prepared. Local seafood and produce are featured. Service has been a problem. On both visits our waiters were new and unpolished. Timing during our latest visit, especially on drinks, was off and it appeared that the bar, which perhaps was a little busy on its own, was giving our waiter a particularly hard time. Ella's is pricey for Westerly and we suspect they will have to revert to discounts and specials to survive year-round.
