American kitchen

Comfort Food × from scratch


A San Francisco institution,  Ella's has been part of the Presidio Heights neighborhood for over 20 years


 Established in 1990 by Danny Wilsner and Robert Merryman, Ella's is a tribute to the timeless comfort of great food and warm hospitality. 

Everything but the bacon is made from scratch in the house, (and we're thinking about that too). The talented & dedicated staff takes great pride in our seasonally driven, ever changing menu. 

We want you to see Ella's as an extension of your kitchen table, where you entertain friends, and continue the next 20 years of family traditions with simple, well-made plates.
