I tried to share this with you privately but the email address you have listed on your website has a full inbox and my email bounced so I will be public. We had an unpleasant time at your Ella location tonight. We had a reservation for 7. We arrived a little early. The hostess was very nice and was able to seat us right away. That is where our experience ended. We sat there for more than 15 minutes and no one said a word to us. I felt like waiters were actually avoiding eye contact. Finally after about 18 minutes a waiter came over and asked if we were ready to order. We said yes and he said he would come back in just a few seconds to grab our order. He never came back. Before I knew it, it had been more than 30 minutes since the hostess sat us and we had not even received water. We decided to just leave and go somewhere else for a meal. No one said a word to us as we were leaving. This kind of service is unforgivable in my book. It was especially embarrassing because we had a guest who is not from Houston. It is unusual for us to receive anything but at least decent service in Houston and especially in Oak Forest. We are Oak Forest locals and we really do not want this kind of service in our neighborhood. I don't know if we will be returning but I really hope this reaches you and that you take it as constructive criticism and correct whatever the problem was tonight. Your restaurant is a beautiful and a nice concept. The service issue needs attention, most especially at the price point. Thank you for your attention.

Great vibes here, we came for Sunday Brunch. It’s great for groups of adults or families so the crowd is interesting. Food was tasty for a brunch spot. Can’t wait to come back and try the lunch and dinner menus.
