    The cocktails and wine list were great. The salads and entrees were delicious. The only maybe was the dessert. We had the apple crisp. It was a little dry, heavy on the cinnamon and could have been sweeter. This is of course my taste preference and I’m sure others would disagree. Other than that I was very impressed and will be excited to return.

    Always our go to place for special occasions over the years. The food is always well prepared and the service exceptional. The only complaint we have is the menu still looks the same, year after year. I feel like we keep ordering the same thing. Also, they’ve modified the bone marrow appetizer recipe; which wasn’t necessary. It was perfect before and now the flavor and texture are pretty average. They really need a menu refresh, maybe bring in someone from the outside to offer suggestions.

    I had lamb that was perfectly cooked followed by a panna cotta that was amazing. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

    Always nice time. Skimpy almost non existent on polenta with the lamb. Seriously a main entree should come with something especially it it’s listed as such on the menu

    I had a beautiful time, per usual. Michael was great at assisting our fabulous evening. And, Shane was great as always. I love his customer service and the way he runs the restaurant. I will continue to come back to Ella’s.
