Delicious food and drinks. Great spirit selection. Staff was very polite and helpful with food/drink selections. Loved the shutters all over the ceiling. Can’t wait to go back.

We have been going to Ella’s for years. The food, service, and ambience was perfect as always. Ella’s has received a Michelin star rating, so it seems that they are much busier than I remember. All the banquet rooms were full, which made the restaurant a lot more noisy. The popularity and Michelin star probably contributed to the prices being raised at least 30%, so dinner for two, (1 app, 2 drinks, they make their own gin and have an exclusive bourbon made for them, I had an AMAZING old fashion, 1 glass of wine, main course, and 1 dessert) $320 plus tip.

Came here for a birthday with a party of 6.
The service was impeccable. We had someone who had dietary restrictions and staff went above and beyond to accommodate. The food was on point and we tried a little bit of everything between all of us. Really happy with how the evening turned out.

Ella is an excellent farm to fork restaurant that makes delicious, creative food and serves it with class and skill. It is my second favorite Sacramento restaurant, after its more accomplished sister The Kitchen. You can't go wrong here, unless you are on a budget.

Everything was amazing! The atmosphere is clean, chic and comfortable. Not too loud. The drinks stood out right away. The salads were beautiful and sooo tasty. I had the beef tenderloin with mushrooms and brussel sprouts. It was delicious! Our waiter was first rate.

The oysters and appetizers were great. Entrees were fair to disappointing. Dessert selection was pathetic. This is a place that thinks it’s much nicer than it is. Maybe a good spot for happy hour; skip for dinner/special occasions.

The menu was very restricted and We were told there was no happy hour plates because of a shortage of employees. We ordered salmon and filet for dinner. Both was perfectly prepared and delicious.

Too much vinegar was added to the Brussels sprouts and over cooked. Presentation was disappointing and foods tasted blend and coffee was terrible and cold when it got to the table.

If you are going to see a play or hear a speaker, the perfect dining place is Ella's. After parking close by, you can walk into the beautifully decorated restaurant. Our server was fast, knowledgeable, and polite. We had the shrimp and lobster roll plus the tuna salad. Our desserts were fabulous. I ate a pineapple upside down round cake with whipped cream and a crispy thin pineapple on top. Delicious and so creative!! My husband had apple crisp with bourbon ice cream, a tasty treat! We made it perfectly on time to see the delightful Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. What an outstanding cast, especially the lead Willy Wonka, the girl actress playing Charlie, and the Umpa Loopas, turned into puppets. Fabulous afternoon!

Our service and food were amazing! On entering, we were greeted by the very friendly hostess. My guest & I were so excited to get to Ella’s we forgot our masks. The hostess very politely informed us that we could not enter without masks, then offered us masks on a silver platter. She is was so sweet and professional about it. We were very apologetic. Vanessa was our server. She was attentive, professional, and very helpful. Vanessa was very knowledgeable of the chef’s recommendations & offered my guest a black linen for her black pants. She is exchanged our silver and our place settings perfectly! Very fine dining and service! Definitely impressed! Thank you for such a beautiful time, especially during these hard times. Happy New Year 🎆
