What a treat! We had a wonderful lunch and enjoyed the ambiance. Our server was fun and gracious. We even tried the Rasta-Fries and loved them. Thank you for a fun and delicious experience. The music was a little loud for our taste, but what the heck.
The menu has something for anyone. The food was phenomenal and the environment is great.
Food was good. A number of items on the menu had already sold out. We were surprised to hear that given it was not late night, yet. More people continued to walk in after we had been seated. The service was fair at best. We seemed to be forgotten about. Our drinks were empty for a while. At the same time, the staff kept going back and forth from the table right next to us with more drinks and food. If we were in the area, I would consider going back, but we are not going to rush back here.
We’re big fans of Ellas but our most recent experience was disappointing.
After selecting her main - the Dog House salad - my wife was told by our server that they were completely out of lettuce. After pondering awhile, she chose the Tuna Cracka Stacka… only to be told that this too was not available. [Why the server couldn’t have told us right up front which menu items weren’t available is perplexing.]. Finally settling on an available menu item, my wife chose the Paula Chop.
However, for some reason my daughter’s and my order were placed before my wife’s order and as a result we were served our meals first. My wife’s finally came about 15-20 minutes after we were served.
Now, the food was delicious and the the ambiance great but how this came together was not acceptable and not consistent with the experience we have had In the past.
Took my friends here on Saturday and was perfect! The food was amazing, the atmosphere felt bohemian, the staff was super friendly and outdoor art was calming. Just an overall great experience. Even the other customers added to the charm, the family next to us join us momentarily and bought us dessert! Quite the surprise for my out of town friends. Our server Sage was wonderful!
Great service, terrific food, even had some live music for a little bit. Absolutely coming back, 100%.
very enjoyable, as always............................
Fun and funky eatery with an outdoor deck and plenty of vegetarian options.
Shrimp and grits hit the spot with a spicy tomato jam. Brunch is a must!
They literally ran out of food on a Saturday night. Reservations at 7:15. Left by 9pm with no entrees served due to running out of everything. Literally.
Great, as per usual!
Awesome evening outside on the veranda
Great food , music and ambience…. Definitely will be back
Great Southern food! Loved it!
Fun place and interesting food combinations!
Sunday Soul Food is great for BBQ and live music! Do it.
Waited 15 minutes before getting greeted by a server to take our drink order . Then didn’t have ingredients to make the drink . Food was ok , nothing special . Temperature of food was warm . We ordered the waffle with fruit and chicken and waffles . Won’t return
Very nice! Special brunch menu but no traditional egg dish available!
They were short staffed and service was very slow . They were out of a lot of food also.
Nice destination restaurant. Good food, good ambiance and charming decor.
Mask policy posted at the door is not consistently enforced.
Great vibe and awesome food and drink.
The food is a southern treat! Nestled in the Seminole Heights community, it’s for sure a gem that everyone can enjoy.
I forgot what an eclectic and cool place this was. Fun bar scene for a Sunday brunch. Food was delicious and different (in a good way). I ordered the shrimp and grits with collard greens. Soooo yummy!
Great experience and great food!
Fun time in this funky place!
Excellent food, atmosphere and staff! Love going to this place. One of the reasons we moved to the neighborhood.
Just Great, been there 3 times and now need to try the entire menu
Nice setting with good food and service. We will be back.
New to Tampa, grateful Ella's is right in our neighborhood.
Loud music made it difficult to communicate with the servers (and each other). Our server offered us food, only to return to tell us they didn't have it. Our hot food was served lukewarm / room temperature. I got the impression that the staff was new and unsure of what food/drinks were available. We have previously been to Ella's with better experiences.
I have eaten dinner here but never the brunch. It exceeded my expectations and was amazing! The Bloody Ella's fabulous and the chicken and waffles, just yummy! Make sure you make reservations! So worth it!
Great as usual.
Food was very good. Sat outside under the trees and was surprised at how comfortable it was considering it being August. Will be back soon!
Places great food and ambience by can't really recommend it just cuz their bathroom doors don't lock properly
VERY PLEASANT AND FRIENDLY
A favorite of mine in the Tampa area! Always recommend!
Ella's is an eclectic place with well-prepared unique dishes, always a pleasure to go there.
