Great spot. Great food. Out for dinner with a coworker. Table next to us was a family with two young kids who danced around more than they sat. They were replaced by 4 millenials out for a wild time. Either would have been fine but the tables were a little two close to ignore your neighbors. Other tables may be more private, but this may not be the place for a quiet romantic dinner.

Nice finding experience. Took about 30 min to get the bottle of wine we ordered to the table. Only complaint! Excellent oysters and beet salad. Recommend ribeye over strip.

The Cesar salad wasn't on dinner but I still got it because Our waitress asked the chefs if they had some left from happy hour. Total plus😊

We had a great evening at Ella, and the food was incredibly delicious as always. It was personally my fourth time there, and every experience has been a treat.

Beef cheeks and bone marrow were delicious. Salmon was ok, salmon sauce was great. Steak was not good, too tough and tasteless.

Always an excellent meal at Ella. We love it there and can always find something great to eat. Had the beef cheeks and polenta which was great, the burrata salad was wonderful. Scallops were ok seemed like they sat a little long, the new york steak was wonderful. The Morning Sundae was a great way to cap the evening. A note for folks, the tables are a bit small so hard to share apps.

Service was great as usual, will be back in the future.

Valentine's dinner special occasion. Excellent service, excellent food. The total package for ambiance and romance. We especially enjoyed the relaxed pace. Over a period of 2h, we enjoyed five courses and an amazing bottle of champagne. It was a little pricy but totally worth it. Thank you to the cooks and waiters. The cherry on the top of the cake was the parking valet. So convenient on chilly night in a sexy dress!
