Asked for the bill and it never came. Eventually had to go to the bar to pay.

Read all the great reviews about this place so booked a Father's day dinner. Unfortunately for us, the service of the wait staff fell short, starting off with no body acknowledging us for 5 minutes while we stood at the front door, the restaurant was 80% staff members walked right in front of us and completely ignored us. The restaurant was

The Ellis was a gem! The food was delicious; we particularly liked the wings and cucumber kale salad. Save room for dessert- we loved the beignets. Very comfortable, casual setting. Outstanding, friendly service!

Great food, great service. Was celebrating my birthday with some friends and we had a great time, they even brought out a surprise birthday dessert! Fantastic addition to the neighbourhood.

Appetizer got “lost”, arrived with dinner, so waited 45 mins before anything came. Got an apology but no offer of a write off of any kind. Food was basic but good when it did arrive. Good menu and drinks list.

Great place - a true neighbourhood gem. Relaxed atmosphere and when it got full we didn’t feel we were too close to anyone. Great space, service and eats. Grilled Octopus was a real treat. Definitely looking to return soon.

I booked a table for breakfast with friends at 9:30am and found out on the day of the booking that the restaurant didn't open until 10am. I'm not sure why earlier times were available when the restaurant wasn't open. We went elsewhere.

I personally expected a bit more, food wise. I ate a veggie burger and can say that there wasn't anything special about it. The atmosphere was nice which I appreciated.

So not quite sure what to make of The Ellis. The food was great So that’s a plus. The restaurant is somewhere between a pub and a restaurant and I think it would be better as one or the other. We were having a bite on the restaurant side while there was a lot of shouting coming from the shuffleboard table and my wife was staring at the big screen behind me. The atmosphere is more casual than what I had figured going in. Would definitely give the patio a try in the summer.
