Ella Dining Room and Bar
It was a very nice and well organized dinner. I appreciated their attention and also how well they took care of us. The food was amazing and service superb. Highly recommended!
Our party of five had a delightful experience at Ella's. Thank you very much.
Came here for the first time and it was absolutely amazing. Every bite was delicious and I would definitely recommend this to anyone. They accept reservations and are very accommodating. Valet out front was a plus
Great place for a nice dinner in downtown. Enjoyed a delicious meal with my fiance, one of the best we have had all year. Happy to have a place of this quality in Sac. Well-made cocktails, very flavorful dishes and both of the desserts we had were stellar. The sticky toffee pudding, to me, is a perfect dessert. Can't wait to go back!
I just love this place whenever I get back to Sacramento. The staff is super friendly, happy to talk (or not) and are also knowledgeable on the menu, the wine, the food, and all that comes together to make it always a great evening. I can't recommend it enough!
Food and everything was great. However, it was my girlfriend’s birthday and they knew but did not do anything with desert.
Would definitely return for a date night or special occasion. I felt doted on the entire night, service was remarkable, our server had information about every item on the menu, and was familiar with the wine (which is impressive!). The have an ever changing menu with the season, something I personally enjoy so that I can return and have a new experience, however, the expectation of quality will still be there. We enjoyed the Brie for appetizer, tomato soup, Brussel sprouts, and salmon. Everything had great flavor and the presentation was on point.
This is a great place for a special occasion. It is not inexpensive, but the food was outstanding. Their happy hour from 3-6 is very good and reasonable compared to the dinner prices.
Great location, excellent selection of spirits, especially bourbons. Great extensive wine list. I felt the wine markup was kinda excessive. Server and sommelier were phenomenal. Everyone loved the Waygu tenderloin. I enjoyed the tomato soup and the lobster Mac. Appetizers were spot on. Very nice farm to table restaurant. Bring your wallet.
I wish I could remember our servers name--he's from Dallas and he was outstanding. The food was over the top. I had a business associate from Dallas who was visiting San Francisco and invited me to come to "the city" for really good food. I told him to come to Sacramento for "really good food". He was amazed by the presentation, the quality, the creativity and of course the taste of our meals. His impression of Ella---and of Sacramento---was radically different than when he arrived. Ella made me proud.
Overall, it was a great dinner! Great service, and the salad/ entrees were delicious. The wines and dessert weren't the best, but not bad either. We will be back!
Overall, food was ok this time. Had a friend with me that was Gluten free, butter free,soy free and dairy free sure to allergies.. She had a hard time finding options. Just an FYI, all salads are not always gluten free. But the waiter told us they were.
First time having lunch here. The restaurant had a great vibe. Menu selections looked tasty and made it difficult for us to decide. Finally settled on splitting a few dishes - lobster mac & cheese, french dip, and fried chicken. Each dish was delicious! Put server was friendly and accommodating. Thank you for a great dining experience!
My wife and I were there for our anniversary sitting between 2 other couples celebrating their anniversaries. Our server, Bryan, while remaining busy all evening, still made us feel like we were the only people that mattered in the entire restaurant. He was extraordinary. He made a few recommendations that were all happily accepted and every one was ultimately appreciated. When I requested that my steak be prepared a certain way, he explained that my request could not be fulfilled and he explained why. When I ordered the steak anyway, he came by immediately upon its arrival from the kitchen to determine if it was acceptable. Either he is ready for an Oscar, or he legitimately cared that I enjoyed my meal.
The food was amazing. The service was better
My first time dining here. Everything was exceptional. Food with unique and artful presentation and everything fresh. The service by Brian was exceptional too. I do not live in Sacramento or this would be my favorite restaurant. I will return next time in your city.
Very nice dining experience. Excellent food and very professional service.
We had a great time at Ella. The food and the staff were great and the place has a great vibe. Excellent wine list too.
The best dining experience yet in Sacramento after 20 years
Farm to table quality ingredients. Delicious food and nice ambiance.
The food was great and we enjoyed the atmosphere. The wait wasn’t bad either, we just got a drink at the bar while waiting for the table.
Menu was very limited, in terms of entrees. I think there were 5 or 6 only. Food has become too complex and lost its likability. Cannot figure out why restaurant didn’t have a simple chocolate based dessert either. I had a better recollection of the food from the prior times I’ve dined; honestly I think they are trying too hard to be creative and have regressed on their flavor.
I agree that is one of the top 10 restaurants in Sacramento. The place looks very trendy. Great food and presentation. Excellent service. Only thing needs improvement was the plate which was not hot enough. The restaurant was busy so I guess the food was not served right away.
Food was outstanding as usual. Wonderful cocktails and great atmosphere. Wine list could have a better variety, very Cabernet focused.
Ella's has outstanding food and great service.
You do pay for this food and service, so I wouldn't call it a "great value", but it is an awesome special occasion option in Sacramento.
Always enjoyable to go to Ella's food is unique and very tasty! You guys are the bomb!
It was a client dinner. The location, place, food and service were fantastic!
Service was outstanding! Our server had a thorough overview of the menu and in-depth knowledge on everything from liquor types/production to menu choices. This is a special restaurant that takes pride in everything from the linens to the hand-made soda in your cocktails. Would highly recommend.
Overall very good place to eat. Food was excellent. However the waiter was distracted and missed bringing out our first course.
We were thrilled to find Ella on our first trip to Sacramento. Great food, great service
Ella is a favorite for it’s ambiance and service, if not for it’s uninspired food. While the classic steak tartare and popover remains excellent, the rest of the menu is fairly constant and mundane for the price. I wish for a more creative chef and more diverse seasonal menu. Until then, it will remain a restaurant for good experience, not great.
Always awesome cocktails and service. Classy
Great business meal
We had reservations next to a group of girls. They were really loud. I didn’t like that much. I couldn’t converse with my spouse. Didn’t like that I had to sit right next to a huge curtain. Which was right up my shoulder And back. Other than that the service and the food was excellent!!!
Excellent as always. Our waiter really took care of us. Awesome experience.
Every dish was a standout in taste and presentation. Quiet ambience added to the enjoyment. Great service, too!
One of the best meals ever. Food was spectacular. Service was a bit slow.
As usual, my dining experience was exception in every way. I look forward to my next visit.
Sean was awesome. Food was awesome. Great dinner as always at Ella.
We came to Ella for our anniversary dinner and it exceeded our expectations. We brought our friends back the next night for an after dinner drink and Brian was excellent at the bar. We thank you!
