    We were 1 of 2 groups in the restaurant. It took 25 minutes to get our drinks and our food took forever as well. Food was subpar at best and not worth the money at all. Ridiculously overpriced.

    I had read somewhere (DMN/Dallas Magazine) that Ellie’s is a new fancy restaurant and especially good for post - theater dinners. Well, last night after The Prom show we went there at 1045 and we were the only dinners with a very low vibe. They ran out of salmon and the food was hurried as the kitchen was closing in 10 min. And only three small scallops for 42 bucks with a little left over veggies ….. May be our bad luck, but not going again.

    Very disappointing experience. We initially decided to check this place out after reviewing online reviews and to celebrate a friends birthday. Upon being seated we were ignored for 30-40 minutes before we could get acknowledged by any staff/hostess to order our drinks. Meanwhile, we watched staff members tend to other tables and guest. Additionally, they were out of food items on the menu. All in all, the customer service ruined our experience and I wouldn’t recommend it even for happy hour.

    I love Ellies and the Hall Arts Hotel, from the Valet staff, to the waiters, bar tenders, hosts, front desk staff. It's the people that make this place extra special. Eric, Raquel, Ousama, DQ, Preston and others make this place what it is, a beautiful location, with lovely and comfortable roomes, gracious hosptiality, awesome drinks and meals. The art, even the plants, it's all so curated and erstful for the guests. It's such a pleasure to be your neighbor and come to your location for meals, meetings, relaxation and more. Thank you.

    Beautiful room, so sunny and relaxing. We ordered the pre-theater menu and enjoyed every dish, from the gazpacho appetizer to the salmon with gnocchi and the fresh-made gremolata pasta, to the refreshing desserts. Generous servings, and very good service from Kevin. Great value and we will be back.

    Our server Jessie was outstanding! She was very knowledgeable and gave us excellent service with a personal touch. The food was very well prepared. I would have preferred a few simply prepared dishes, but then I am a very picky eater. The wines were already well-priced for a restaurant, but then taking half off on Wednesday evenings made for an exceptional value!

    Atmosphere was very cute/good. Live music but not over whelming. Staff was very friendly. However, service was slow (for drinks and food). Food was fine (not great). I had the pork ribeye and lobster friend rice. Pork was slightly over cooked and rice was bland. Value was lacking. Would try again for cocktails at the bar.
