Main problem we had was the breakfast potatoes, which definitely tasted of pork. My partner and I are both vegetarians and grew up not eating pork, so we immediately set the potatoes aside. When we explained this to the server, he was overly-adamant there was no meat. As if the universe herself heard us, a customer from the neighboring table chimed in and explained she was also raised not eating meat and always orders something in place of the breakfast potatoes here because they have a pork residue. We weren’t upset, just annoyed at the initial pushback. Plus, breakfast potato are our favorite part of brunch. Warning to all vegetarians hoping to order breakfast potatoes, this may not be the place for you!
Lovely little place with good ambience, nice staff, sweet location -- some of the dishes are very good, but some use canned substitutes for fresh ingredients, which is a disappointment (my "roasted red peppers and tomatoes" were directly from a can or a jar, and made the bread underneath it soggy).
Good experience— great food
Super delicious — everything we ordered. Brussel sprouts. Salmon burger. Greek salad.
Much too loud indoors for elderly like us, but pleasant outdoors. Four tapas were about the right amount for two of us. The ones we chose were tasty.
Best restaurant in the neighborhood. Perfect in every way. Five stars for all
Love this place! Neighborhood staple
Great place, great food, great service! I highly recommend this restaurant. One of my favorites in New York.
The food was amazing. The service could have been faster but it was great experience overall. The food made up for everything.
Great selection of different foods to share, all very good! It was very loud inside, so expect to shout to whomever you’re with if the restaurant is busy (we ate around 9PM on a Friday).
The food was good but the service was bad. We had to call waitress over every time to get service vice.
Love this place!!!! I've been here for work, for play, or to relax. It never lets me down.
As always, the food is just incredible, we were almost licking the plates. The drinks are also terrific. My only hesitation is the acoustics are not great so the noise level is high. Otherwise, love everything about this place!
Tasty tapas and friendly, attentive service
Excellent tapas, especially the empanadas and mushroom crepes. The patatas bravas seemed more like a baked potato than with that great crispy texture, so I don't think I'd order that particular item again. But overall, an very nice experience at a reasonable price.
Tapas were outstanding. Waitstaff could have been more attentive. Entrees (both Paellas and the Veggie Burger) were unremarkable.
Great “local” that we are glad we found! Reasonable price with different, authentic food and great service. Definitely coming back for tapas at the bar.
Ella Kitchen and Bar has been a neighborhood favorite of mine for many years. Although the food has always been consistently very good, the service has become questionable. Better training is in order if staff think it’s ok to remember half an order, deliver plates without silverware on the table, not offer condiments for toast, serve milk that is obviously spoiled, and curdling or place 4 large platters on a high top that can only accommodate two. The level of thoughtlessness is unacceptable. In addition, the last two times we have dined here, we observed there are more annoying flies in the dining room than there are outside. I now am questioning the cleanliness of the place.
Terrible food. This is an insult to Spanish food. Their "bravas" were the worse... will definitely not return
Good atmosphere - bustling but not chaotic. Our server was very nice and helpful. We ordered 4 tapas. Kofte sliders were delicious as were the Ella empanada and shrimp ajillo. Bravas were very good, but we prefer them a little crisper and with more sauce. Paired off with a generously poured glass of cava, it was a perfect summer dinner. We love this place and will definitely be back.
Service very attentive Leo the best service and the manager very friendly back soon to Ella thanks food the best tasty
Nice setting with indoor and outdoor tables and our server was attentive. That said, flies were present while eating indoors. Menu had a wide variety of tapas. Burger was good while gazpacho was ok - creamy base which was not disclosed and bland flavor. Grilled octopus was not cooked properly - tough exterior while mushy interior. Disappointing meal compared to reviews.
This place is amazing. We had the skirt steak and salad and fries. Delicious! I also liked their sangria.
Ella Kitchen and Bar is a very pleasant tapas style restaurant a short walk from the Beacon Theatre. The menu has lots of options including many vegetarian friendly choices. The small plates are excellent including the olive selection, empanadas, guacamole ‘tartare’, chorizo, and many others. Service was friendly in the busy room. Noise level is a bit elevated in the cozy seating but manageable. We’ve now dined there twice and all in all a really nice place to grab a bite on the upper west side.
Neighborhood gem. Great food and attentive service
We had a lovely time. Staff was so nice and food was delicious!!
Great food for good value that opens by 10 am. Will definitely return when needing a bottomless cava, belini, mimosa, or bloody Mary (which I rarely enjoy)
Excellent food. Sliders were delicious!!
some of the best tapas in nyc. noise level was much better sitting outside.
Always a favorite!
Very accommodating and welcoming. Wonderful combination/selections of menu items and preparations were very tasty.
Great service and good food
A great find in the Upoer West Side. The food was excellent.
We ordered three Tapas. Guacamole, sliders and meatballs. The first two were just Ok and the meatballs were cold and very bland. Drinks were small.
Overall it was very meh.
Other reviews seem to suggest service is inconsistent and our experience there was on the poor end. We came in as a group of 7 for lunch and it was just alarmingly slow for what seemed like basic orders with not so many tables dining at the same time. Table after table that was seated after our group were served their meals before us and it just felt like we didn’t matter (probably because they charged us a set gratuity). Food’s ok.
Too loud inside. Cannot have a conversation
One of my favorite places in the upper west side. Octopus and steak skewers were especially good,
Comfortable ambiance, conveniently located close to subway, nice sidewalk patio seating, many options on the menu. Perfect for brunch.
Great food, excellent service. Difficult to have a conversation: noise level high.
Great food, fine service, but WHY TOO LOUD!!!!!!!!
