Definitely one of the best restaurants in Tampa! A little eclectic with a great bar and even better service. Food is always delicious
Went for brunch over the weekend. We got there fifteen minutes early and there was already a line. We managed to get a seat at the bar, had some delicious mimosas ($10 mimosa comes in a glass that looks like it could fit an entire bottle of wine), and some amazing tarragon fried chicken and a waffle. Fried pickles also to die for.
Pros: Food. Service. Drinks.
Cons: Crowd. Parking. Could not button pants for the rest of day.
I went on a Thursday and there was no entertainment but our waiter was lovely the stuffed chicken was amazing great place to relax
Ella's food is phenomenal, the staff is always very fast and friendly, and the atmosphere is quirky. Live music there is fun, too. There are very few times I've gone to Ella's and been able to have a quiet conversation whether it be due to live music or just the fact that they are PACKED and everyone's conversations creates a tone of noise, so if you're looking for quiet, it's rare and nine times out of ten, you'll have to sit on the patio to get it. Other than that, nothing bad to say.
Pros: Great food, fast/friendly service, indoor & outdoor areas, cool atmosphere
