Our last night in Fayetteville, AR brought us to Ella's with two friends who live in town. Ella's is in a former women's housing building converted into a historic hotel at the edge of the U of Arkansas campus. The building has antebellum touches, is beautifully appointed, and Ella's is the dining room. White table cloths, thick carpets, walls oozing... More

This restaurant is part of Carnall Hall and is staffed by servers from the school. The atmosphere is lovely and serene. A nice variety of food and adequate service. I've been there several times to an almost empty dining room for dinner.

My husband had the tenderloin and I had the lamb chops. Both were fabulous. The sous chef here knows what to do..the combinations all fit together to give you the best meal imaginable.

This restaurant, in Carnall Hall, offers good food and a really nice location in which to enjoy your lunch/dinner. There's also a nice bar just nearby.

If you are looking for an upscale place to eat this should be on your list. Food & presentation were very good. But not cheap. Four people with wine, drinks & tip just shy of $400.

Quaint lobby for first welcome of guests in the elegant Carnall Hall at the U of A, this restaurant offers a business atmosphere with quiet elegance. One can hear those at the table well while tables are spaced adequately for not overhearing those at nearby tables. This is my go-to place for interviews.

Made early reservations 6:00pm to get to play at Walton Arts Center which started at 8:00. Only 5 Tables with one large group. Service was really slow. Got out of restaurant at 7:45. One waiter for those tables. Shouldn't have been a big deal. Food was good. Maybe a little over priced for what we had. That being said probably... More

Toured U.A. campus, got hungry and lunched here with a friend and my wife. Lots of old photos on hallways, some 60-80 years old. Looked for some old acquaintances but no joy. Lunch was delicious, the place has a great local reputation and service was great; friendly waitstaff; food served hot and plates, silverware, etc of good quality.

It has been about 5 years since I ate at Ella's, and so I was expecting a similar experience--nice ambiance, good food, great service. I was sadly disappointed. The ambience was ok. The lights were pretty bright though. The service was fine. The food was not good at all. I ordered the pasta primavera that's description said was made with... More

We have gone here for brunch many many times and love it every single time. It is classy and just a great place to go after church to relax and have great food.
