06/30/2018 "Food never disappoints. Excellent. The attention to detail in service sets this restaurant apart from others."
06/12/2018 "Been there at least a dozen times in the past two years. As usual Ella's crew (Jeannie's staff) performed admirably. Haven't been disappointed yet (nor do we expect to be in the future). Kudos all around!"
06/05/2018 "By far the best restaurant in the area. Food is always spot on, service is great and atmosphere is quiet enough for conversation!
How can you beat that?"
05/13/2018 "Great Mother's Day dinner. The service and food were perfect and the owner/chef came to the table to check on us. Outstanding."
05/01/2018 "Amazing.... brought my friends from Poland and they loved!"
04/24/2018 "Great food, service and place! My husband and I went for the very first time to Ella's to celebrate our anniversary and the food and service was amazing. I highly recommend it!"
04/13/2018 "We celebrated my birthday at Ella's and were very pleased. It was our first visit and we will definitely be back."

Friendly and knowledgeable staff."
04/01/2018 "Ella's -- always fabulous food, nice - quiet -- can actually have a conversation -- very attentive wait staff. Always enjoy my visits to Ella's ....... thanks again for a great experience!!"
03/17/2018 "Our favorite restaurant. Fabulous food. Chelsea the bartender is awesome"
03/01/2018 "Our waitress was wonderful and great for recommending dishes. The maple cheese cake and pistachio poached pear was INSANE!"
02/23/2018 "Once again, Jeanie and James did an outstanding job. Everything we had -- the foie gras, the tuna tacos, the mussels, the brussels sprouts side dish, the lamb, the miso salmon -- were excellent. Neil, our waiter was attentive and friendly, but not overbearing."
02/16/2018 "Been a while since we were here, 1st time for our friends and we were all very impressed with everything. Food was fantastic as was the service. We look forward to going back again in the near future."
02/05/2018 "Most wonderful plates we've had in the region. Spouse asked for the chefs off menu recommendation and was more than happily pleased with the Duck a duex. Chef Jeanie explained that the crispy leg quarter took 3 days prep and the additional breast prepared traditionally was the best we've ever tasted. My Shrimp and grits were a work of art. Staff were all extremely well trained and provided 5 star service. If you want the best, go enjoy the food from Jeanie and her husband at Ella's Fine Food and Spirits"
02/03/2018 "Every visit to Ella's is a culinary adventure. This time it was Chef Jeanie's amazing maple-brined pork chops — a moist and juicy perfection topped with applesauce and a savory spiced butter. It was a "wow!" combination. And it was served with a side of the cheddar-bacon tots that are the most imaginative, exquisite tots you'll ever eat. A big thank you to our exceptional, attentive server, Neal, and head of the house and wine expert James for another spectacular evening."

01/20/2018 "All aspects of the operation were handled at a level of perfection unusual for the area that it is in. The dining experience far surpasses everyone else in all areas, of menu selection, meal preparation, wait staff, attentiveness, and all around a class act."

01/06/2018 "All around great food. Excellent specials. For dessert, try the donuts and the ice cream."
12/26/2017 "Owner Jeanie always greets her guests even when she is running the kitchen. Service is impeccable. All of the staff are professional. They are all graceful and efficient. The cuisine is absolutely the finest dining in New England let alone the entire Northeast and yes, I'm from NYC... Unique cuisine, awesome desserts, and a very beautiful establishment."
12/16/2017 "Went for my sister's birthday. Service was really good. Waitress regularly filled our water and checked if we need anything. Food was outstanding, decent portions, seemed a good value for the cost. We split several things and they were very accommodating for that as well. Great for special occasions."
12/08/2017 "Another great night at Ella's. We brought guests from out of the area who were very jealous they don't have an Ella's where they live. All four meals were fabulous from appetizers to dessert and of course the perfect Ella's service. Our go to spot for great dining."
11/23/2017 "We always dine out for Thanksgiving and this was a particularly lovely dinner. Although full, the restaurant was quiet enough that we could have a nice conversation without raising our voices. Every dish was exquisitely prepared and served. We will definitely return. "
11/15/2017 "Truly addicted to the Bistro hamburger bar assortment!"
11/04/2017 "The food was amazing! My husband and I will go back in a heartbeat! We very highly recommend this restaurant!"
10/28/2017 "We took friends here for their anniversary and it was fabulous as always. 1st time for my friends and they thought it was fabulous too."
10/13/2017 "Always enjoy Ella's. Only get there a few times a year - since we live in Minnesota - but it is always outstanding. Excellent food, service, ambiance and hospitality."
10/07/2017 "Fantastic experience and meal! So many great items on the regular menu and many additional specials to choose from as well! The ravioli with truffles was amazing! Chef herself came out to shave the Truffles!!! And the Duck was perfectly prepared - crispy and moist!
It was a wonderful evening! We would highly recommend Ella's! Can't wait to return! "
09/28/2017 "Excellent meal. My wife had the Pig & Fig and the pork chop must have been close to a pound. I had the Crabby Scallops. Both entrees were a full meal. The food at Ella's was every bit as good as at the Roland's Perfect Caper restaurant in our home town of Punta Gorda, FL "
09/24/2017 "This was our first visit to Ella's. It had been recommended and I was intrigued by it's menu. Years ago it was an italian restaurant. They have remodeled it beautifully. I was impressed how busy it was on a Sunday night. Parking was very convenient. Our waitress was efficient, sweet, and kind. The food was fabulous to look at and to taste. My Crabby scallops with black rice were delicious. The lobster mac and cheese looked yummy. Our guests loved the root beer float and ginger bread ice cream sandwich. I cannot wait to go back there!! "
09/15/2017 "Always a great dining experience at Ella's. The food is unique and the staff is very attentive. I like that there are fine-dining items and burgers on the same menu. Attention is paid to small details, and the presentation is as great as the food tastes. "
09/13/2017 " Exceptional food. Each dish was prepared perfectly, from the 14 oz N.Y. Strip to the shimp and grits to the seared scallops with lump crab meat. Highly recommended the creme brulee and the baked gingerbread with caramel ice cream, for dessert. Exceptional service gives this a (very rare) 5 star rating from me!"
09/02/2017 "My fiancé and I went for a special dinner the day we got engaged. The service, staff, food and overall experience was outstanding it was my first time there, it was my fiancé's second time there, for dinner. We will definitely be going back again"
08/31/2017 "Hands down top restaurant in Rhode Island, and in all of my travels, one of my most favorite places to eat. The owners - Jeanie and James - are hands-on, personable and have such great talents when it comes to making an incredible meal. I look forward to traveling to Rhode Island just so I can eat at Ella's!"
08/19/2017 "Ella's is fine dining at its best. This caliber of experience isn't easily found. It is unequivocally as good as it gets in the south county of Rhode Island, and some would say in the entire state. This year, there was only one restaurant that I would rank higher and that one is in London. So go and enjoy. The prices are reasonable for fine dining, and they do not assault you with loud obnoxious music and roudy drunk patrons like so many other places do."
08/06/2017 "My friends from out of town (NYC and Houston) really enjoyed the food. Our waitress was fabulous and very attentive. The food was great! I had the halibut special and it was delicious -- perfectly prepared! The owner's husband was also very helpful with the wines for our group. All around it was a fabulous gourmand evening. Thank you to Ella's and staff!"
07/29/2017 "This place is awesome. The food is just amazing. Good wine... on the pricey side but more than worth it. I'm French and the food just reminded me home. Definately one of the best restaurants I've been to in the US and even in France."
