This is the 2nd time I've eaten here in the past year and the first time was great. However, the 2nd visit was dismal. The vegan options were no longer on the menu and when asked about just vegetables, we learned that even those are blanched in butter and couldn't accommodate us. Thankfully, they had just had an event that had a couple vegan guests so they had some left over pasta they could serve us. The pasta was served with pesto which was good, but salting the water to cook the pasta would make it less bland. The bread and drinks were good, but they were out of the wine my wife wanted from the menu we were given. They made a grilled cheese for my daughter but she didn't love it. Sadly, unless they are more accommodating to common diets, we won't be back.

The food was excellent. I had shrimp and grits and I ate every bite. In fact it was so delicious that I chose to go back with friends from out of town the very next day for lunch. I was going to order my second choice, grilled tomato soup,from the day before which was Friday. To my surprise the menu on Saturday was brunch so I had to rethink my choices. I settled on a burger. It was good and the fries were great. My friends both ordered omelets and the were very pleased. The bloody Mary’s were very good as well. Ella’s is still on my short list for lunch in the near future.

Nicole was our server as she often is and she is a real pro. She does a great job and is very pleasant. The food was predictably well presented and tasted wonderful. One of our favorite spots for Sunday brunch after attending church.

Much better than previous dining experience at Ella’s. Everyone’s (group of 8) food was delicious (which had been the downfall when previously dining here) Wonderful service. Great evening with great company!!

I made my reservation through Open Table. It was for 9:30am but I would have preferred a later time like 10:30am. When we got there the place was pretty empty and remained so during our visit. I believe next time I would not make the reservation through Open Table since it seems the times are pretty arbitrary. The staff was very helpful and pleasant to deal with. The food was great. The dining room, since the previous time I dined there, was updated nicely. I will definitely bring more friends here.

One of the best meals I’ve had in Fayetteville. The catfish was deeply and richly spiced and the rice and greens were perfectly cooked.

The food and service were excellent. The fried chicken and waffles with sausage gravy was uniquely seasoned and a real treat. I miss the more traditional decor that corresponded with the age of this beautiful inn.

7 out of 8 meals were really great and one was so-so. New chef since March of 2019 has turned things around. Decor has been renovated, service was great. We will definitely return for future meals.

My wife had the red snapper and carmelized brussel spouts and said they were excellent. I had the small filet, ordered medium. It was overcooked, but the rub had good flavor. Sides were good. We also had bananas Foster bread pudding for dessert and it made the meal. Outstanding dessert. We'll give it a try again.

The place needs some sort of sound breaks or rugs. I am never bothered by noise, but seemed like everyone was screaming. My girlfriend was laughing about it. We literally were yelling too, because we couldn’t hear each other.

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.

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.

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.
