Excellent waitstaff, food, and presentation. Only thing lacking is the ambience. Dining room is very non-descript.

Great setting in a historic building. Service was perfect and friendly. We both had the tasting menu with wine. The food was creative and outstanding. The wine pairings were spot on. The chef even made a visit to our table to see how our experience was. Super place. Will definitely be going back. Outstanding !!

I’ve been to Ella’s twice now, and had excellent food both times. The beef tenderloin was great on our last visit. The cocktail I ordered was lackluster, but the beer and wine lists are good. The only drawback is that the atmosphere is SO quiet. Sometimes this may be what you want, but it can also feel dead and that may put a damper on the date vibe or special occasion vibe.

We enjoyed our brunch at Ella's. The atmosphere is always nice. The seating arrangement makes it easy to have a conversation. The dining room is usually quiet - no loud blaring music. I really appreciate that.
The food was good, but I would like to see some other options for brunch. Many of the choices are very similar. The service was a little below par, the server came very close to spilling hot water on a guest at our table, and also had a few other bumpy dish episodes. Also, it took a long time to get our food, and it was really not that busy.

Seared scallops were excellent and couscous croquette was delicious. The bite I had of the beef tenderloin will send me back to try that as well.

Quiet ambience in elegant historic setting. Food was delicious and the service was great. I really enjoyed the crab and shrimp cakes. We were celebrating my mother's 86th birthday and appreciated the convenient parking and handicap accessible entrance through the basement.

THe service here was just horrible. We were there for 1 Hour before any food showed up. But the worst part was our server!! He was rude and condescending. A real jerk. It’s a shame because the place has potential but this guy ruined our evening.

Second time to restaurant. Lunch food and value were good when I last came. We had dinner this time and while the atmosphere has a rustic elegance about it - love that -, the food was just so-so. Price was too high for the quality of food. If I go back, it will be for lunch only. btw: Service was very good - Friendly and prompt.

A great dining experience! The starters were a little bit late, other than that everything was delightful! Would recommend to anyone willing to take the chance.

We were visiting Fayetteville for a football game and chose Ella's based on reviews. Pretty disappointing experience. The service was incredibly slow and we had to repeatedly flag down servers to even get bread for the table. The food was not up to par for the price. They were very busy but for a restaurant of this caliber and price point that is no excuse. The setting in a historic hotel on the Arkansas campus is noteworthy; however the service and food were not.

Expensive but delicious! $130 for two people, appetizer, dessert, one glass of wine, and tip. But it was so so good. But only for an event like a 5 year anniversary like ours. We wouldn't go just for a normal date. Dress nice!
