    The food and service was good. I feel like it’s kinda overpriced for what you get, especially since you aren’t able to get free valet parking.

    Outstanding! Stumbled upon Ella's on Google and so glad we did. The brunch was amazing. Hands down the best (whole hog) breakfast sausage I've ever had and the cheddar grits were also the best I've ever had. Kale salad two plates full it was so good. Everything was superb and the waiter, manager and host were all Southern gentleman.

    Ate breakfast here on New Year’s Day. Had a reservation and they only offered a buffet with no option to order from the menu. This restaurant is basically your standard hotel restaurant, it’s attached to the Hyatt Centric and the food quality and service standard reflects this. It’s overpriced, don’t waste your time and money when there are so many good dining options available downtown.

    Service was terrible! It was a slow Saturday afternoon and my food never got rang in, and my friend got her food before mine and our drinks. I did get my meal Compt which I felt was fair, but overall I probably won’t be going back.

    Brought my girls for brunch with her friend! Very lovely spot and lots of windows which makes the room bright! Food was delicious and the girls enjoyed their pancakes! My other daughter got the Tennessee Protein bowl and enjoyed it! I had gotten the Nash Brisket Hash. Brisket was tender, potatoes were meaty and I enjoyed the sunny side up eggs! I like wilted spinach but I don’t think it melded well with the dish and the spinach was downed underneath the gravy. Overall it was delicious and the drinks are tasty (Cumberland coffee, mimosa and hit chocolate) and we will likely be back!

    Beautiful place, with lots of potential. Went here for a Sunday brunch. The service was sub-par. It took 20 minutes for a server to greet us, and it took another 20 minutes to get our drinks. One of the two entrees was forgotten so there was a 25 minute lag between my boyfriend getting his food and eating and me finally receiving mine. The food was alright but overshadowed by the multiple service issues. The waitress did comp my entree.

    Service was practically non existent and took forever. They had several open tables, yet it took 20 minutes to get someone to come to the table, 30 minutes to get drinks and 45 minutes after that to get two entrées: a salad and one small piece of baked chicken...and shrimp on salad was surprisingly undercooked! The manager seemed to be working very hard with little help from the staff. Ridiculous that we were charged by the hour for parking when it took 3 hours to get a very simple dinner. Manager did comp one of our drinks since he realized just how bad the experience was.

    This restaurant is fairly new and has some issues to work out. That being said it was a very busy night in Nashville and they were busy and trying very hard to please. Steak and salmon came to the table undercooked, but the chicken and pork chop were both cooked to perfection and were very good. Outdoor seating was very nice and it is close to downtown without being in the super busy, crazy part.

    For the price point, the atmosphere/ambiance is very underwhelming. More of a cafe’ than a nice restaurant. Very limited dinner menu but what we did have was very good. Extremely understaffed. Only one poor guy was waiting on the entire restaurant on a busy Saturday night. He did the best he could and we tipped him well. Unless you’re staying at the hotel, find somewhere else to dine. ‘Plenty of choices downtown.

    When charging $60 for a steak - you shouldn't have to send it back twice because it is undercooked. The pork chop came out really dry. The chicken was bland. Service was slow. Drinks took 15-20 minutes to arrive. Clearly this place is out of its league.

    I was a little skeptical about going to a hotel restaurant, but it was hard finding many options…so I tried Ella’s on 2nd. What a great choice…the food was exceptional and the service was even better. I enjoyed the salmon entree —-cooked to perfection. Highly recommend!
