    Great food. Awful service and it was a fairly empty restaurant. Our drinks came only with the food, allegedly because they had to get the wine, but it was the wrong wine. It went downhill from there. Waitress avoided us while fawning over a nearby table. They need new help.

    Food was good. I had the strip steak, wife had the salmon. Nothing to write home about, but was definitely better than average. Cocktails were probably the highlight. Their margaritas and old fashioned were definitely up there with some of the best we’ve had. Service was impeccable. Highly recommend the visit.

    Service was exceptional with Savanah. She can brighten anyone's day. Food was very good and tasty and portions were good. Only improvements are to ensure you clean the light fixtures over the kitchen area. They were really dirty. Other small things were to heat the tomato sauce to the same temp as the meats and throw in a little bread to scoop up the sauce.

    The menu on line was different … all 3 things I wanted were not available.. baked clams, truffle gnocchi, filet mignon… different menu … eggplant app was terrible… I’m an excellent cook and can run circles around what I was served…. Too thin, too bready and hardly any cheese… my drink was divine and that’s it… waiter was good too

    Called ahead and spoke to Adrian a manager. He was very accommodating and answered my questions. Our server was nice although his energy level and enthusiasm seemed to be lacking. He was knowledgeable about the menu which I really appreciated. He was not as attentive when at the table. Could have been more proactive about refilling bottled water. Still good service over all. We ordered 4 items. Cauliflower appetizer was delicious. Strawberry salad was amazing although they forgot to add the walnuts to salad as mentioned on the menu. We asked for some and they brought as a side. I ordered the short rib and they were fantastic. My dining partner ordered the New Zealand venison. Was cooked to perfection but the potato puree was over salted. Over all experience was wonderful. Wasn’t very crowded and lights could have been a little dimmer. Servers did congregate in the kitchen and there were a 2-3 times during out experience where we needed something and had a question and it took longer that expected to get servers attention. Would have appreciated a higher level of awareness from the service team regarding having eyes on the dining room. I would return and it was a lovely meal.

    Searched “Italian” on opentable- suggest Ucheck menü- it is NOT ITALIAN Had 5:00 reserves- got there at 4:30 people sitting at bar. Employees shuffling chairs, tables, putting serving ware on tables… left us at door for 8min or so till woman comes up and tells us “we open at 5:00”… no suggestion of sitar bar or would we like to sitar table with water. Once seated there was no water service or other. As seems to continue at most restaurants around town- food served “warm” and didn’t stay warm but 5 min or so …. Might try again but not for awhile…

    This is probably the worst experience I’ve ever had in a restaurant. The service was poor and the food was awful. Totally hyped for no reason. Waste of money.

    Savannah our server was sweet and made excellent suggestions. Our main courses tasted wonderful. Got the whipped ricotta appetizer, when we were told they had gluten free bread, and I was served burnt breakfast toast as my GF option.

    We did not know that this restaurant is in a hotel which takes away from the ambiance. The tables and chairs were not attractive so we ate at the bar. We expected more quality Food was good

    My only recommendation is a drink should have been tired in to the price. Other than that everything was great!!

    They were not prepared for having crab claws. No shell crackers and they ran out of them by 6:30.

    The meal at Ella’s was beautiful. Chef Alex spoke to us while we were at the buffet and asked for “honest feedback”, and I’m not sure seeing us on line for the Christmas buffet for seconds, thirds, fourths, and fifths communicates how wonderful each dish was. The prime rib was cooked exceptionally well, with a nice sharp horseradish dressing. The crab claws were all immense, and no effort was involved to open them up. Our waiter, Savannah was so personable and attentive. It was an amazing dining experience. The staff was so warm and welcoming and it was a wonderful way to spend Christmas

    For the price the value was terrible, the Prime Rib was cold, crab claws were still frozen when served, our waiter was nonexistent. The management team was ill prepared. For the day. We’ll never return.

    The Prime Rib and Ham were ice cold. The food in the chaffing dishes were warm, but not hot by any means. The desserts were good and the seafood station was nice. The services was very good and the server was extremely nice. The value was not there at $75.00 per person. I would not recommend this buffet.

    Christmas Day Buffet was amazing. Chef Alex and his team knocked it out of the park (and he remembered us from being there for the Easter Buffet. Our server Matt was personable and very attentive.

    We did brunch on our 2022 visit and it was fabulous! Amazing selection, pretty room, great service. Loved it so much that we booked our Christmas stay at the Hyatt Centric Hotel which is connected to the restaurant. Perfect downtown location and love that a first rate restaurant is available. Really Nice low key, elegant bar with comfy seating area as well as bar seating. Don’t come to Nashville without going to Ella’s. We won’t!
