Although we had a reservation, we waited about 10 minutes for a table. Another party also had a reservation and had already been waiting when the host was about to seat a party which had just walked through the door! Luckily, they spoke up or the table meant for them would have been given away. Had heard this place was busy and that a reservation was a must. Front of the house appeared very unorganized. Food was acceptable but not particularly special although the coffe was good. In addition, we noticed that the owner/host checked in with other patrons and thanked them for coming in and asked them to stop in again. We don't feel we received the same level of courtesy and wondered if it was because we presented a Groupon certificate. Surely, seasoned restauranteurs and business people would not discriminate if they need/want repeat business.

Didn't seem quite prepared for the rush they had during the week between Christmas and New Year's, when some other restaurants in the area were closed. Otherwise, great as usual!

It has been many years since eating at Ella's. The wait staff was great, the food was all right, but the wait for the food was unacceptable. We arrived at 12:40 and didn't get served our main course until 1:30. The soup and fruit plate arrived and it was another 35 to 40 minute wait for one salad and one sandwich. We did mention the wait to the manager and our waiter and they were quite apologetic. There must have been something going awry in the kitchen. Other tables sat down after us and were served before us. We overheard another patron complaining about the same problem; long wait and others arriving after being served first. In their defense, it was quite crowded and in a good faith gesture they did comp our fruit plate. At this time, I don't see us returning any time soon, but time will tell.

it was really difficult getting through on the phone to make reservations. Please add online reservation capability on your website or through opentable.com

I felt there food wasn't 't that good. Soup was too salty and Mac & cheese was nothing special for $14.00.
