Stella’s never disappoints. Our dinners were tasty - the salads fresh and the desserts imaginative. Even though it was a busy Saturday night our wait for a table was short. The restaurant was full. There aren’t many that are reliably excellent on a Saturday night.

This was our second visit to Ella's. We just wished we had known about it sooner! The cuisine was creative without being overbearing. Each dish was a new and delightful pairing of fresh ingredients, new spices and artistic presentation. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Great place for elegant dining.

Fantastic experience and meal! So many great items on the regular menu and many additional specials to choose from as well! The ravioli with truffles was amazing! Chef herself came out to shave the Truffles!!! And the Duck was perfectly prepared - crispy and moist!
It was a wonderful evening! We would highly recommend Ella's! Can't wait to return!

Excellent meal. My wife had the Pig& Fig and the pork chop must have been close to a pound. I had the Crabby Scallops. Both entrees were a full meal.
The food at Ella's was every bit as good as at the Roland's Perfect Caper restaurant in our home town of Punta Gorda, FL

As always Ella's didn't disappoint. The quality of the food, service and ambiance was top notch. We go to Ella's when we're in the mood for superb food and service and it consistently meets expectations. This time I had the Pig and Fig and my wife had the Crabby Scallops. Both are terrific choices for the main course. The mussels and calamari for appetizers are yummy as well. All of the desserts are great choices and you can't go wrong with any of them.

The service was spotty. The Parisian salad was so-so, the steak (frites) was over-cooked but OK. Very good French fries, and very ginger-y featured dessert. I was only given 1.5 small pieces of bread, with very little butter, and I had to ask for that.

This was our first visit to Ella's. It had been recommended and I was intrigued by it's menu. Years ago it was an italian restaurant. They have remodeled it beautifully. I was impressed how busy it was on a Sunday night. Parking was very convenient.
Our waitress was efficient, sweet, and kind. The food was fabulous to look at and to taste.
My Crabby scallops with black rice were delicious. The lobster mac and cheese looked yummy. Our guests loved the root beer float and ginger bread ice cream sandwich.
I cannot wait to go back there!!

One of the best meals I have ever had. Amazing mussels with duck fat fries, heirloom caprese with housemade mozzarella, and chicken bolognese that was better than any I have had. Our server was knowledgeable, decisive and helpful. The value was amazing.

My wife and I ate here for her 50th birthday celebration, this past September 23. My dinner was excellent, the duck 2 ways, but hers was rather disappointing. Our appetisers were perfectly fine after mine was corrected. I had ordered the 1/2 green salad which was supposed to come with an oil and vinegar dressing, but it had a creamy dressing on it. They quickly replaced it. She had the special of tomatoes, mozzarella, and balsamic reduction and reported that it was delicious.
My duck was exquisite, especially the confit leg part, but Sarah had ordered a 1/2 portion of the Lobster Mac n Cheese, and it was not good. Normally, she would not order just mac n cheese at a restaurant of this caliber, but when she saw that it had lobster, she just had to have it. She had also been advised that it was rich and filling, but this was over the top. I don't eat dairy, so I cannot attest to it, but she showed me that it was sitting in an oily puddle of cheese fat, and the tiny pieces of lobster were very hard to find. She was worried that she wouldn't be able to eat the whole thing, only managing to eat half before giving up. It turns out that the kitchen had made a mistake and sent her a whole order, but only charged us for a half.
Serving staff were attentive, but infrequent. I think they should probably hire a few more people.
The cocktail and wine and drinks list was extensive, well-priced, and delicious.
We definitely want to go back, but my wife will order something else.

Ella's ambiance, food quality and selection, and service are fantastic. Prices are on the high side for the Westerly, RI area but worth it for a special occasion. The only downside to our recent evening was the amount of time it took for our drink order to be taken and filled. Otherwise, everything was perfect.

As an frequent diner here, we brought two family members for the first time here for a Birthday celebration. The two new members raved about the place and the food. We enjoyed the crafted cocktails, enjoyed good California wines, wonderful seasonal tomato salad, and great food. The honored guest had a sirloin special and was very pleased with the tenderness, seasoning, and accompanying side dish. Our two first time guest tried two different specials of the day and they raved about the flavor and quality of the food. We all enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and wonderful service.

I was beyond excited to try Ella's. Great reviews and featured on Phantom Gourmet! We arrived at 7:30 on time for our reservation. We literally stood at the host stand for 10 mins until we were acknowledged. Not a good start. We were then told our table wasn't ready. We went to the bar to wait. There were 3 of us and only 2 seats so we stood at the bar. The owner told us we couldn't stand that we were in the way. She asked people to move at the bar so we could sit. Now its 8:15 and no one ever comes to say anything to us. 45 mins is a long time to wait when you have a reservation. Also we waited a solid 15 minutes to even get a drink at the bar. Female bartender was buried....awful!! Now we get seated about 8:20 ... 50 mins late. No sorry... nothing offered.. nothing said. Now we sit and we have an older woman as our server. It takes her betw 10-12 mins to even come to our table once we are seated. Awful! My boyfriend tells her straight out this has been a terrible experience thus far and she kind of shakes her head in agreement. Food is good but not great and with deplorable service and customer service why return? We finally got our meal at 9:30, two hours after we arrived. I am so disappointed! We won't be back!

Ella's was a delight! The service was excellent and the food scrumptious! I had a tuna sashimi appetizer with freshly grated (at the table) wasabi. Others had the pate and lobster mac and cheese, all delicious. The mini-donut dessert with chocolate sauce--yummy!
