Been a while since we were here, 1st time for our friends and we were all very impressed with everything. Food was fantastic as was the service. We look forward to going back again in the near future.

Jeannie Roland is a superb chef and her husband James runs a very tight restaurant. They serve extraordinary food and do not waste money on tablecloths and flowers. We had the $25 pre fixe, with two excellent courses. I am a huge fan of Mama's Chicken and the Duck Au Deux. The Foie Gras appetizer is unbelievable.

This was one of the worst dining experiences. Our reservation was at 6:00. We were seated at 6:00 and did not even get a water until 6:20 (after 2 servers asked what kind of water we wanted). After a half hour, we finally got a drink and our order placed. The server left our table in the middle of telling us the specials to serve food to another table. The server also was very rude and sarcastic when we didn't order an appetizer and told us that our medium rare NY strip & medium duck would take a half hour and what would we do with our time if we didn't order an app. Probably the same thing we did in the half hour it took for us to order. The food was completely bland (worst steak I've ever had at $36). No salt & pepper on table so you couldn't season it yourself. Our server then argued over bringing us the check. Will never return.

Every visit to Ella's is a culinary adventure. This time it was Chef Jeanie's amazing maple-brined pork chops — a moist and juicy perfection topped with applesauce and a savory spiced butter. It was a "wow!" combination. And it was served with a side of the cheddar-bacon tots that are the most imaginative, exquisite tots you'll ever eat. A big thank you to our exceptional, attentive server, Neal, and head of the house and wine expert James for another spectacular evening.

ALL ASPECTS OF THE OPERATION WERE HANDLED AT A LEVEL OF PERFECTION UNUSUAL FOR THE AREA THAT IT IS IN. THE DINING EXPERIENCE FAR SURPASSES EVERYONE ELSE IN ALL AREAS, OF MENU SELECTION, MEAL PREPERATION, WAIT STAFF, ATTENTIVNESS, AND ALL AROUND A CLASS ACT.

Really enjoyed this and will return. Headed for Perfect Caper in Punta Gorda. One observation: the bartender was terrific. However, she touched so many things that have germs as she went about her busy job. Then, with bare fingers, she squeezed fruit into drinks and dropped fruit in. That’s my delicious drink. This is the HEIGHT OF FLU SEASON. I have to say I really wished she had washed her hands before doing that. She is touching food that goes into mouths. Does this happen in kitchen, too?

Ella's is a fantastic restaurant. Everything we've ever eaten has been delicious! The Brussels sprouts are AMAZING. Don't miss them! The "all chocolate" dessert might be a tad too rich for me, but it is super tasty nonetheless. You can really taste how fresh all the seafood is!

We decided to eat out for Christmas Eve and Ella's was someplace we had wanted to try. We were seated within moments of arriving. We elected to split the duck liver mouse crostini appetizer (a special). It was really phenomenal and and the portion was plenty for a couple to split. I rarely eat steaks in restaurants, but ordered the fillet mignon special and it was delicious...perfectly medium rare and melt-in-your-mouth tender. The mushrooms it was served over and the side of mac-and-cheese were excellent. Carol's Miso salmon was excellent as well. We both arrived fairly hungry but the half appetizer and entree didn't leave much room for desert....but that didn't disappoint us. The service was very good and we both left very happy and looking forward to returning.

Ella’s is one of our favorites. Tonight’s food was exceptional. The butternut/pear soup was delicious! The mixed greens salad was perfectly dressed. The seared flounder was flaky with a perfect sauce, topped with pistachios, atop spaghetti squash and spinach. Just lovely dining during a busy week of holiday prep.

Went for my sister's birthday. Service was really good. Waitress regularly filled our water and checked if we need anything. Food was outstanding, decent portions, seemed a good value for the cost. We split several things and they were very accommodating for that as well. Great for special occasions.

We went for Thanksgiving dinner. Our waiter was great, but service from the kitchen was very slow. We waited an hour and a half for our dinners. The lamb portion was fatty and very small, and the vegetable portion of spinach and olives was barely a mouthful.
