Exquisite interior decor. Farm to table, delicious cuisine, with seasonally shifting menu. Extensive wine list.

I enjoyed a wonderful evening meal at Ellerbe's. The beet/citrus salad started the meal off right with nice flavor and a bit of pop from the citrus. My entrée was the duck confit which was served in a savory white bean/Brussels Sprouts presentation. The duck, as the waiter predicted, fell off the bone and had a great, rich flavor. A scoop of pecan ice cream rounded out the meal. All in all, a very nice dining experience.

The food was amazing and the service, superb. My husband and I enjoyed a quiet date night where we were actually able to hear each other talk and did not feel like the staff was rushing us. We will definitely be back.

Food is excellent - very much on Gourmet side. Great steak and fish! The steak has a definite smoke flavor...fish dishes very good. The bread pudding is over the top. Elegant dining with great service! Ask for Scott as waiter - great service! Brittny also over the top!

My wife and I joined two other couples for dinner at Ellerbe's on a recent Saturday night. Overall, our experience was very good, if not stellar. The ambience was excellent, with good lighting and a fresh and appealing space. Our server was knowledgeable and efficient, but did seem to enjoy hearing himself talk - at length - about the menu. The Cowtown Market salad was fresh and visually appealing, but not a great value at $14. The Texas red wine we enjoyed was actually quite good and a relative bargain at $34. Everyone seemed to enjoy their entrée and the bread pudding was above average. All in all, it was a good night out and I would return to Ellerbe's - it just didn't blow me away.

My favorite spot for great food and good conversation with friends.
Service is always excellent and the atmosphere relaxed.
I love that it is not noisy and I can actually enjoy a conversation with my guest.

Richly unique (in a very positive way) dining experience. The environment and reuse of a old gas station sets the tone the minute you arrive. Courteous and attentive staff take over from there. There is just enough on the menu that speaks to most. Preparation and quality of ingredients are more than on point. On the whole this was an excellent night out. A bit spendy, however somewhat justified considering use of ‘local food sourcng’ and options. The ‘take away/at table’ wine selection is a cool concept. Be sure not too over look it as we did unfortunately. Resulting in paying $28 more for the same bottle on the menu listing for some reason. Wine selection is vast and quite interesting.

We've been to Ellerbe's 5-6 times over the years. The food is always very good, the wine list is excellent, the service is outstanding, and it's just a fun place to go. I really can't think of anything that wasn't just outstanding. The ambiance of a converted gas station may be lacking for those concerned with such trivia, but I certainly don't think this is an issue. We'll go again, hopefully sooner than later!

Dinner was good but not excellent, which I would expect for the price. My entrée was $30 and I only ate half of it. When the waiter took it away I assumed he would box up my leftovers, nope. He threw it away!! We weee Disappointed considering our overall bill was $150 for 2

Great service (thanks, Brittany). Wine list that satisfied the wine-os I was with. Food is unusual and creative without being weird. My lamb maybe could have been cooked a little longer. Overall a great experience.

As usual, the food did not disappoint. The blue crab salad was yummy. The pork shank with the tamal and black beans was very good. We did have a little mixup with the water (what's wrong with tap water?); the waitress should have been more clear with the choices - she gave us a choice of still or sparkling, never mentioning we could have just regular water (instead of almost $7 water!). We also had a mixup on our bill (really? two people drank two bottles of bubbly!?). So, disappointed with service (why couldn't they have seated us in Michael's section?); our waitress was not very attentive, either. Front of house staff needs to be more attentive, as well; here's a hint: Look at people when they walk in!

Brought visiting friend here we had not been back in a couple of years. Food and service still wonderful. We had gumbo and seasonal soup then salads which were great. We had the pheasant, the scallops and the beef special which was sirloin which was very tender and moist.
The cookie sampler, the carrot cake and chocolate dessert were all delicious.

Excellent food. Poor experience with front hostess. Didn’t even look up to acknowledge us. We’re at a work lunch with booked reservations and literally had to interrupt her in order to get acknowledged in order to get to our table. The place was nearly empty at that time for an 1130 am lunch crowd. Filled up shortly afterwards. And our waiter was stellar! First impressions are lasting impressions unfortunately and she lost it for me.

The waiter was very nice and kind. However, he was constantly at or table and we felt rushed to finish our food and were asked questions every 5 minutes. It was not relaxing as the environment seemed to imply. Would recommend giving guests some space t enjoy their time and conversation. Waiter provided good service just constantly was at the table to do something or ask something. Was not an enjoyable time with the many interruptions.
