I LOVE THIS PLACE AND HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT! I intend to keep going until I’ve tried everything on the menu that interests me. You should do the same!

Okay, now that I got that out of the way…this is the food I ate at Ella’s for my early birthday celebration. I didn’t post all of the pictures, because I wanted to share more information here.

APPETIZERS
Crab Stuffed Butternut Squash—Sweet Oven Roasted Squash, Spicy Crab with Citrus Hollandaise

Rasta-Far-Fries—Fried Potato Wedges tossed in House Mustard with Sea Salt, Cilantro and Sriracha

ENTRÉE
Beef Tenderloin–Two 4 oz Medallions, grilled and finished with Black Truffle Sea Salt. Served with Garlic Mashed Potato Cake, Herbed Goat Cheese, Bacon wrapped Asparagus and Port Wine Reduction.

WINE
Pinot Noir, Block Nine, California

Prepare to spend about $30-40 for one person here. Entrees are as low as $13 and as high as $26 and worth every penny! I haven’t met a person yet who has regretted visiting.

Of Note:

  • You can only get a reservation for parties of 8 or more. This place is super popular, so make sure to call ahead and get on their list. I recommend going before 8 p.m.
  • Don’t sit close to the stage. It seems like a great spot, until the band gets started. You are literally in touching distance of their instruments.
  • There is parking, but once the small lot behind the restaurant fills, you have to park in certain places, depending on the time. On the side of the building, they list where you can park. Read this carefully, then choose your spot.
