A wonderful evening with great food and outstanding service
I must say that I had the best French Onion Soup ever ! It was perfect. The server was excellent with describing the menu specials. I will definitely be back.
We had a great dinner at Ellas, and they have some great alternative low calorie dishes. Overall the service was great, and the entrees were perfect, great salmon! Thanks!!
We had an attentive waitress. The service was great.
This was our first visit to Ella's and we were impressed. There was an authenticity about the French cuisine that made selecting an entree a pleasant problem. The food was well-prepared, especially a beef short-rib dish that was better than other local, highly-rated venues.
Our dining area was a side room, easily quiet enough for conversation.
Only a slight service miscue detracted from our experience -- hardly an issue.
Service was poor but food was good
Excellent food! Great service! Carrot soup was delicious!
this quiet corner of the shopping center has an appropriate MAIN LINE atmosphere. they always serve excellent drinks. the food is outstanding. I am not a vegan but my friend had a butternut Squash with lentils that would have been a wonderful alternative to my best flank steak within 50 miles. Flank steak was delicious and done perfect. like the new fritz.
Our food was cold and had to send it back twice. Wouldn't be running back to this place. The dining area and waitress where both nice. The food was meh!
Ella's Bistro is by far my favorite dining spot. The food is always wonderful, the staff attentive and the ambiance exceptional. Thank you again for a lovely evening.
Loved house smoked salmon!
it was our 2nd time there....Food was great nice quite window table service was excellent from the hostess to the servers.....will keep it as a go to place
Excellent service and food. Forget White Dog and Paramour...this is a hidden gem on the Main Line!
Love the new dishes! Very inventive chef. Squash special was so different and extremely delicious ! The Trout done to perfection! I have eaten here before but not for awhile. So glad we tried it again!! Love the decor and we had a very attentive server.
Well done all!!
Ella's has seemingly gotten their act together! Now both food and service were wonderful. Ambience is always lovely - an added bonus.
Our most difficult choice we had to make was to eat appetizers or entries. The appies are large enough portions to eat as entries.
Our group of four chose four separate entries and each turned out to be delicious! The short rib was outstanding!
Beautiful place, perfect for a ladies lunch or an elegant French dinner. But food needs work. Dinner entrees were just okay. Tarragon chicken salad at lunch was surprisingly boring. Service was a bit lackadaisical, waitress would disappear for long periods at lunch.
I would like to come back for the food, right now it is the ambience that is the sell.
Second visit to this diamond-in-the-rough. Yes, it's located in a not-so-charming shopping plaza, but the dining room inside is classy, elegant and comfortable. Mattie, our server, was very knowledgeable and thoughtful, paid just the right amount of attention to us. Food was again excellent. I hope to return many times.
A varied menu with delicious options for any palate. Each of us enjoyed our selections, especially the duck and the side order of brussel sprouts. The ambiance is lovely and relaxing.
Ella's Bistro has great ambience and décor with its equestrian-theme, the food is just delicious - everyone in my party was very pleased - and the small setting is perfect for an intimate gathering, to catch up with friends, or a special night out. Service was very good - attentive without being overbearing. The menu changes periodically with the seasons and I look forward to going back to see what new things they have cooked up.
