    Our server was very good. Appetizers were great! We had the pizzette and the whipped ricotta. For entrees we had 2 salmons and 2 chicken milanese. Beautiful presentation on everything. Food was really good. Dessert menu was not impressive. Didn't order any. Ordered wine and they came back and told us they had to go upstairs to get some and it would be a while. It was but, the wine was good as well. Parking was a little crazy but, it is downtown...

    Ella’s is truly a hidden gem that we will visit again. The food and service were both spectacular. My wife and I split our meal between two appetizers and one entree. We had the Roasted Local Beets and the Torn Burrata & Country Prosciutto. The burrata & prosciutto dish was the best appetizer we have ever experienced. Our shared entree was the Branzino. We added the Crispy Potatoes. Both were great. Service was quick and our server, Sabrina was wonderful. We look forward to our next visit. Bravo Ella’s!

    Started with drinks and appetizers at the bar. Appetizers were all delicious, meatballs, whipped ricotta and the pizette. Dinner was equally good. Steak that my friend ordered was prepared perfectly, my salmon was great as were the other entrees my group ordered. Our server was very attentive. A hidden gem in the Hyatt hotel.

    We have begun frequenting Ella’s before shows downtown (and we got to a lot of shows!). The service in the dining area is always excellent. The bar service is iffy. I got there yesterday at 5:50pm and asked to order a drink off the HH menu. HH is 3-6pm (or at least that’s what their website says). The bartender told me HH was over. All I wanted was a glass of wine. She left me with the menu & came back 5 min later (there was only one other person at the bar) and asked if anyone had taken my order. As I had no drink in front of me & she had been there the entire time, obviously no one had served me. The other bartender completely ignored me. My friend arrived shortly after and although the bar was a bit busier and I understand the bartenders are making drinks for tables as well, she had to flag one down to order a drink & then wait to get their attention again to pay. We’ve been there so many times and are just stumped at why the bar staff seem unhelpful but the dining rooms service is excellent. The food is great though & we will continue to go. Hopefully management reads this as service is key. And we all know Nashville is NOT known for it’s service in general

    Great breakfast food-interesting choices. We visited twice and ordered the same items each day-the protein bowl. It was excellent the first day, but the kale and sweet potatoes were a bit under cooked the second day. Great coffee and friendly staff.

    Great Find in Nashville for breakfast. Just a cozy restaurant found within the hotel that serves incredible food. Sunday morning trying to find a great place to eat without a wait is hard so we were excited when we found Ella's on Open Table that took reservations. Menu was simple which makes the food fabulous as the chefs can fine tune everything. All had something different at the recommendation of our server and then shared. Lemon Blueberry pancakes were delicious and no syrup was needed, Orange French Toast was light and fluffy with just the right amount of orange flavor and silkly filling, brisket and kale breakfast bowl was probably the best as the brisket just melted in your mouth and the gravy made the kale delicious. We will all be repeat customers.

    Ella's was a nice surprise and somewhere we will visit more often. Everything we ordered was delicious and cooked perfectly. The shrimp appetizer is must and the black truffle gnocchi is incredible. The insanely large Italian cream cake is so good my husband described it as "alarming." Our server, Savannah, was a delight and added some glitter to the entire experience. Make sure to check out the bathrooms. The wallpaper is amazing.

    What an adorable dining spot! Aaron took great care of us at breakfast. I got the brisket hash and my husband Matt got the smoked salmon bruschetta - which means I also tried it, of course! :) Let’s just say my meal was really good, however I am still dreaming of going back to get what he got as my entree next time. Y’all - it was off the charts good!

    Wow! Very impressed by this gem! We hadn't heard of it prior to seeing it on Open Table and decided to try it. Every dish was fantastic; meatball appetizer, ribeye for two, crunchy potatoes, and the coconut cake was OUT OF THIS WORLD!! The prices are very reasonable for the quality and amount of food you get. The value of this experience was better than most other places with much higher prices. We will be going back to Ellas on 2nd!!

    Ella’s was a great spot for a really good casual dinner. Our sweet server Savannah was great at answering questions and with menu suggestions. The restaurant had just gotten in a shipment of fresh local strawberries and utilized this with a great goat cheese and strawberry bruschetta!!! The gnocchi was fantastic as was the braised short ribs. The wine selection was good and the dessert was fabulous. Definitely will eat here again.

    We had a wonderful experience at Ella’s on 2nd after game night at Bridgestone with friends. The food was great, our server Savannah was so attentive and friendly. I definitely recommend the Braised Short Rib and without a doubt the Italian cake for dessert. The Manager Adrian checked on us several times to ensure we were enjoying our meal and service. Was an overall lovely experience and we will definitely go back.

    Our brunch was okay. The food seemed overpriced due to not the lack of flavor and not being hot once delivered to the table. I personally had the brisket hash which was more like beef stew with an egg on top. Drinks were good (I had a peach Bellini) but also overpriced. Blame it on the location I suppose. Service was fine as well although our waitress seemed a little out of it forgetting things several times and having to be reminded to refill coffee etc. While it was Saturday brunch, the place wasn’t completely full so could’ve been an off day. Overall the experience was okay and could’ve gotten a similar meal at a chain restaurant
