This restaurant is in a beautiful location. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was absolutely delicious. My wife and I both commented that it was one of the best breakfasts we have had. Everything tasted fresh and was prepared well. We look forward to eating at Ella's Table again.

The Sunday brunch we had was below average. I would not choose Ella's for Sunday brunch again.

Average tasting food, small selection, and overpriced. The dining room had a bland vibe with an open floor concept. We went for date night and it might be a better lunch place. The service was great, however. I also had a mixed drink that was made very well and I’m particular. Overall though, I’d say an average dinner venue.

Had breakfast there. Service was excellent. My only complaint was that the potatoes that came with my eggs were way too salty and a little over fried.

Ella’s menu is small, but unique and tasty with a local Southern flair. We enjoyed the hush puppy and Fried green tomato appetizer and the red snapper special was excellent. We suggest more tables for a livelier atmosphere and a larger menu would be nice. Delicious but a bit on the pricey side. Excellent service. Good for special occasions due to the Carnal Hall ambience and proximity to UA campus.

Very pretty restaurant! Took family for our daughters college graduation. Son enjoyed his steak, daughter enjoyed the chicken, rest of us all had the fish, it was decent but could use more spices. Only thing I would change is they wanted to charge a 15$ fee to cut the cake we brought in, so I cut it myself. Pretty ridiculous when we’re spending close to 400$ on dinner.

We went to Ella’s table for lunch on a Friday. It had been recommended to me by a friend so I was excited to try it. The location is very convenient and parking was easy. The inside is nice, clean, and well lit. Unfortunately, the food and service were sub par. The menu is limited so there aren’t many options. Me and another person at my table decided on the burger but requested them to be cooked differently. They mixed them up when brought to our table. Disregarding the error, the burgers were unremarkable. The same can be said for the catfish and the shrimp and grits. We will not be returning.

The food was good, the service was outstanding. The room was large and could be noisy if full, but the evening we were there was not crowded. The general ambiance is good, but a bit too bright. All in, I will very likely return.

We asked for the chef's tasting menu and had a 5 course meal with wine pairings. Nothing was bad other than we ran out of appetite before dessert arrived.

Service was awful. Took an hour to get our food. Served what looked like sausage gravy from a microwave bag that for some reason had green peppers in it. I sent it back & they only removed 1/2 of the cost from the bill. Was a horrible experience & we will not be going back.

First you should know that Ella's Table is located inside The Inn At Carnal Hall on the U of A campus so you don't look for a freestanding establishment in case you're not familiar.

My husband and I had gone about three years ago and thought it was okay. Fast forward and since then they've renovated the interior. The updates are great with just the right touches of wood and some really great new lighting fixtures. They didn't overdo it so it doesn't look like the newest thing you'd see in the trends of the restaurant world.

When we went in, it wasn't too crowded. The company was fantastic and Ella's gave us just the perfect place to have almost four hours of "girl's chat."

Two of us had Roasted Chicken Breast and they had no problem exchanging my potato gnocchi for Brussels Sprouts. The chicken was prepared just right. I think everyone was happy with their food. The Smoked Ham Hock Raviolis looked divine (and they also had no problem subbing out the Collard Greens for Brussels Sprouts on that one either).

Two areas for improvement: I did think it smelled a little funny at the Inn, not sure what it was, but it threw me off a bit. You also have to go outside of the restaurant and downstairs to use the restroom. First world problems, I suppose.

Overall a great experience, great food and would definitely recommended!

My mother and I went in to enjoy a Sunday brunch and were genuinely delighted with the atmosphere and customer service. Although our eggs were a little undercooked and potatoes were cold. They were out of the salmon tartine which was our first choice. There was bad weather so many the kitchen was a little scrambly. I was disappointed in my food but I want to come back to try other meals.

Food was delicious! Service was great! Pricing as expected. But the new design I found cold and less than intimate. I prefered the old design where you could sit in comfort eat and drink and felt like no one could enter your space. Its okay now but feels very separate from the antiquity of the old school cool that Ellas is about to me.

Excellent food, wine and service. The ambiance of the entire building is wonderful. Wish there was a fireplace, as it appears cold minimalism won out over charm. The rest of the structure reeks of old school warmth and charm. Nevertheless, this is an excellent value and great choice for dining in Fayetteville.

Great New Years Eve dinner. We were even seated earlier than our reservation. Very friendly attentive waiter, but not pushy.

Lounge/bar was very nice for pre-dinner cocktails.
