    I've always loved Ella's and was thrilled to see that they had put together a special menu just for our group. I was even happier when i talked to an owner who told me their veggie burger was on their regular menu? Let's do this again soon!

    Food was very tasty and creative. Staff was friendly and attentive. Restaurant decor is artsy and the overall atmosphere is buzzing. Taking off a point for lack of parking and the food wasn't delivered to a sweet woman at our table who waited patiently while the rest of us ate.

    Timothy, I just emailed you with a request to also add my husband to my RSVP. I couldn't figure out how to do this. Thanks! I'm so excited about this group and the way you have arranged to try different places each time!

    September 20, 2013

    • Timothy B.

      Hey, you are all set... One more is added. :)

      September 20, 2013

      Thank you, Timothy!

    I was so looking forward to this event. Then I saw that it's the second Saturday of the month, and clashes with the regular vegan buffet at Trangs. I've been supporting the Trangs event since it began almost ten years ago. It's the only totally vegan buffet that takes place every month without fail. It would be so great if you could switch this dinner at Ella's to any other Saturday :(

    September 20, 2013

    • Timothy B.

      Hey Maria, Thang is a great time... I will try to lkeep that in mind when planning future events. Because we are working with the Resturants availability, this is not always possible. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

    I don't see a way to add a guest to my RSVP. Can I add one please?
