Recent 231 Ellsworth Reviews

 Over the years, we've eaten at 231 Ellsworth on numerous occasions, sometimes for special events, but just as many times, if not more, simply because it's good. Having dined there over the last couple of decades, we are especially happy with the offerings of the current chef, Tim Hilt. He and his kitchen bring fresh, seasonally updated versions of classics with inventive twists and the presentation is at once elegant and whimsical. Most importantly, though, is that the food is delicious. We never worry about whether we should order seafood on certain days of the week. Without exception, everything they serve is fresh. We found it to extraordinarily fresh and flavorful, exquisite really,--not always our experience when we've dined elsewhere. We wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend this restaurant.

 I have been to 231 Ellsworth many times, and I have to say that it is my favorite restaurant for fine dinning. Do yourself a treat and order the five course tasting menu with the wine paring. You will not find a better experience anywhere! If one of the items is not really what you want, just ask and they will gladly change it. (My wife won’t eat wild) I have not tried the Vegetarian option, but I just might next time. The wine paring are perfect too. Take a few hours to really enjoy it and treat it as an adventure. You will thank me….. Michael
