  • "Ella's is my favorite restaurant in northwest Arkansas! The ambience is perfect! If you're in a hurry, it's not the place to go. But if you want to linger, savor the food and conversation in a quiet atmosphere, this is the place for you. The food is always delicious, the service is impeccable, and the staff is friendly and accommodating."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Ella's! At less than $10 a piece we were treated to an elegant Sunday brunch in a place full of U of A history. Thankful to those who took on the task of preserving and renovating Carnell Hall where Ella's is housed on the U of A campus."

  • "My wife and selected Ella's to celebrate our 43rd anniversary. We were hoping to find a quality restaurant. Ella's not only met our expectations but exceeded them. From our waiter Ben, who was totally professional, to our total meal, it was a wonderful experience. Ben took his time to explain the menu and offered his opinions on certain dishes. Our food was delicious and was served with plenty of time to enjoy each course, we were never rushed. Thank you to Ben , the Chef and the entire staff at Ella's in making this anniversay special.

  • "We went for New Year's Day dinner and it was fantastic. Granted we were the only people in the restaurant so noise level being quiet is based off not being able to hear the kitchen or other staff members. We had a table close to a window but they all seem spaced enough such that if the place was at capacity, you could still enjoy a meal without hearing other people's conversations. Large comfortable chairs and I found a new favorite wine. We had the Ribeye and the duck, both were perfect. Will definitely be returning."

  • "This was our first time at Ellas. We had dinner before going to the theater. Ben our server was fantastic and very helpful with recommendations. There was a mix up on one of our meals, but all three of the dishes we ordered were wonderful. It was a little pricy, but worth it for a special night out. Very Pleasant experience"

  • "A special night for a grandson to take his grandmother to dinner. It was cold and rainy outside, but warm and inviting inside. There was beautiful music playing in the background. The restaurant was quiet and we were able to have a conversation! The shrimp and grits were delicious as was the chicken marsala. The presentation of the plates was beautiful! This was my first visit, but I will definitely return. We couldn't have asked for a better choice for a special night."

  • "We are frequent dinners and as such always on the look for something different. We found this restaurant on Open Table and decided to try. We missed the brunch hour but made it for lunch. All dishes were very good, by far surpassing my expectations, the service was excellent and the price very reasonable. We had a fantastic chowder, followed by a very tasty pasta and bread pudding for desert. We shared most dishes as the portion was large. I will definitely come back and have been recommending to others."
