Came from out of town to treat my children who live in Greenville. What a wonderful surprise and treat Stella's was
The food was varied with a wonderful menu.
All five meals were a treat. On my list for next year

Great food and Service
As always, Stella's does not disappoint. Our meal was delicious and the service outstanding. The entire staff is friendly and I love the atmosphere of the restaurant. They use local sources to create their food and drinks. I highly recommend Stella's.

Great food & service
If you can find nicer, more friendly and accommodating servers, let me know. There's something on the menu for everyone: meat eaters and non-meat eaters alike.

Always a wonderful experience.
Always a wonderful experience. The food is always on point and creative!

Great local food. Attention
Great local food. Attention to detail, a little on the large portion size. Brought our own wine for 10$ cork fee. Service is knowledgable maybe a little too much info and description about each dish but VERY professional & friendly. Great find, and will go back.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
I go here at least once a week. The food gets better and better. The service is excellent, especially Austin. Everything about Stella's is top notch, coming from someone who has been to the top-rated restaurants in NYC with their extravagant college roommate, which I don't find near as good! Thank you for bringing one of the best to the upstate and including gluten-free selections for us celiacs.

First time diner
I cannot say enough about how much my friend and I enjoyed our first visit to Stella's. The bartender made wonderful cocktails, our server was very attentive, friendly and helpful. Lastly, the food was wonderful. We enjoyed everything from appetizers to desserts and couldn't have been more pleased with the quality (and the quantity) of our food. This will be a hot spot for us from now on.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food. Great service
The menu is quite different. Lots of stuff on it that ive never heard of. Lots of local ingredients. I had swordfish and my wife had shrimp n grits. Both meals were very tasty. Mixed drinks we had were wonderful. Service was superb!
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I would put the meal I had at Stella's up against any restaurant in the greater Greenville area. Awesome southern cuisine prepared with class. Looking forward to going back soon.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great as usual
Food and service outstanding as usual. Will be back.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Owner and staff went of their way to welcome us and discuss the menu. Had delightful cheese plate. . Crabcakes.. swordfish. .. happy happy experience.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Divine dishes, superb service!
We would recommend Stella's to any of our family and friends. The menu was absolutely divine. Our server was very knowledgable, very cordial, and his timing was impeccable. We can't wait to go back!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Trout was excellent
We had an excellent lunch last Friday. The service was very good and the Trout was outstanding. We will definitely be returning to Stella's!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I brought relatives here who were visiting from Atlanta and Houston and who are total food snobs. Everyone was impressed by the freshness of the ingredients and the incredibly well balanced food. In addition, our service was superb. I am allergic to soy, dairy, and wheat, and they were attentive to my needs without seeming irritated for one minute by how high maintenance I am. The owner personally checked on our table multiple times. Overall, great night in Simpsonville.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
As usual, our dining experience was excellent. You never know what the special is going to be, but you will never be disappointed.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Out of the way
What a find. From the outside, it doesn't look like much. Inside is a menu fit for Charleston or downtown Greenville . Excellent and diverse menu utilizing local ingredients. A bit noisy, service competent, food worth the drive.

My strip steak was on th tough side. Okra starter was new and excellent.

Great service and even better food
Had a great experience and our server was friendly and attentive. Just wish we could have tried more items on the menu as everything looked amazing. Will definitely be returning

A Gem in Simpsonville
Recently my husband and I along with another couple had the pleasure of dining at Stellas Southern Bistro. We have eaten here many times before and we have never been disappointed. I had one of the special entrees served that evening. Yellowfin Tuna. It was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. I usually order the Shrimp and Grits which I love. Stellas has the absolute best I have ever eaten. All four of us throughly enjoyed our dinner.
They have an excellent and reasonably priced wine list. Tuesday night 1/2 priced bottles of wine.
Both Jason and Julia, the owners are a delight and they have a very upbeat, knowledgeable, and friendly staff.
Treat yourself and be sure not to miss this exceptional dining experience.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good but overprice.
I went on Saturday night with my hubby and a couple friend of us. I ordered the duck sampler $28 was ok... The breast was little bit tough.. My hubby and my girlfriend ordered the barrel fish ($28) and they love it! They have a $5 drinks for they 5th anniversary and when we got the check was charged for those drinks like $12... The waiter was fun and energetic. Overall was fun.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I celebrated our 29th anniversary at Stella's, and were greeted at our reserved table by two glasses of champagne. The wonderful meal was served in courses, ascending in quantity to the entree and then descending artistically to the dessert sampler. The chef is a true culinary artist. Stellas is a world-class restaurant located amazingly in Simpsonville, SC.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Stella's never disappoints. Their shrimp and grits are a classic, and others in my party loved their crab cakes with fried green tomatoes.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another Amazing Dinner
It is difficult to get continuous great food service and pleasure from many restaurants...but not Stella's!
Another great evening. The duck special - prepared 4 ways got great reviews. The pork chop is a go-to favorite.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ridiculously good! Great food, great service, and romantic setting. You must try their shrimp and grits! Make sure to wash it down with a grapefruit mojito!!!!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic service and food!
Stella's has a wonderful variety of dishes to choose from. I ordered trout and it was the best fish I have ever had! Every dish we ordered was beautifully presented and offered a perfect mix of flavors.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Stella's is The Bomb!
Awesome menu and service; fantastic preparation and presentation. Half price bottles of vino on Monday! Business dinner - I'll fabricate a reason for another trip just so I can return to Stella's:-)
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Stella's never fails to disappoint. The service is good, the food is delicious and served while hot. I think their Shrimp & Grits are the best in the Greenville area. I had a Butternut Squash soup which was very good. The restaurant can get a bit noisy when it is full. Their dessert menu is limited, but I'm usually too full to get dessert. I highly recommend Stella's.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a delicious dinner. Our table of 3 really liked all our items. My trout was great and another diner's shrimp and grits had a little kick to it that made it unique. We also liked the creative cocktails.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Heads Up Greenville
I just wish every restaurant in G'vlle would take a look at this place. If your service and food could only match what is delivered here !!! Try this place and I promise you will not be disappointed.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great as always
Never had a bad meal here...service and food is always top notch!
10/17/2013 5:00:00 PM
Excellent service and great food
We enjoyed another great meal at Stella's. Austin was our waiter and he made the evening wonderful with great service and his in-depth knowledge of each dish. The trout was excellent and the special salad of the evening with cured Duck Bacon was really good. Quite a surprise of flavor.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great service
My wife and I went for our anniversary as this was the restaurant that held our rehearsal dinner. The service was outstanding. Our waiter knew everything about the food and had wonderful opinions to offer without being intrusive. And the food...the food was amazing. I can't recommend Stella's enough, though the cost is a bit high so maybe we'll try to keep to once a week or so.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant is a family favorite. The complete dining experience is beyond compare. The chef never fails to amaze with his delicious creations using local foods. It is southern cooking with a flare. The ambience of the restaurant is perfect for a special occasion or a large group. The staff is always very knowledgeable of the dishes and describes them perfectly. They can assist you with pairing the perfect wine with your selection of food. Every diner receives personal attention from their server and you are made to feel as you are the only diner in the restaurant. The chef and his wife are always available to speak with you and often Julia checks to make sure that your dining experience is pleasurable. An excellent dining experience.

Best in the Upstate
Returned to Stella for an anniversary dinner and was not nor ever have been disappointed. Great atmosphere, wonderful service and without a doubt some the best food the upstate has to offer. We will be back again and again!!
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
as always, I really enjoyed my lunch at Stellas. We all had a good time there.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Mike our waiter was fantastic.
Mike our waiter was fantastic. His description of each dish make it hard to pick just one. He was very attentive and personable and knew when not to interrupt. The gentlemen providing water and picking up plates was great as well. And the food...wow!. The swordfish was the best we have ever had. Oh, the desserts...another wow!!!!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM

Food was exceptional, as was the service. Highly recommended.

A very pleasant surprise!
We were going to the Younts performance Center for a production and wanted to go somewhere that was not a chain restaurant and found Stella's. We were pleased with the staff, the waiter was great in that he gave just the right amount of interaction and anticipated our needs. He gave updates to let us know the status of the food so there were no worries. The food was fantastic and my husband and I agreed that we would definately go back again the first chance we got. We would truly recommend it!!
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service was excellent. I can't complaint!
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Another great night at Stella's
Our server, Austin, was excellent. We had a tenuous situation come up, and his intuition and social dexterity was very impressive. As we have always experienced, the food was creative, tasty and perfectly prepared. On Austin's suggestion, we also enjoyed a fabulous bottle of wine.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good Lunch Spot
Not many options in Simpsonville, but this place never disappoints.
Great service, varied menu and price make this a must stop if you are close by.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
We are so happy that we have such a good restaurant that isn't far from our home.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went to Stella's for an anniversary dinner - didn't have the overall "WOW" factor that is common at restaurants in large cities/abroad. You can't expect too much from the Upstate, but that said the food was definitely very good. It didn't quite cross the threshold of "great" but hey, not bad at all! Definitely a good place for a fancy but not terribly adventurous dinner.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
They forgot about our food order for a while but the food was good.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was the second time I had dined at Stella's Southern Bistro - first time was a few years ago for a friend's rehearsal dinner party and second was for my anniversary. The ambiance is very nice and our waitress was very friendly and service very timely. The price was reasonable for the food and atmosphere. Food presentation was very nice and the Chocolate sampler dessert was amazing! My only complaint was that the crab cake I ordered tasted funny - must've been a bad batch or probably need a new recipe. Overall, I definitely recommend Stella's and it's a great way to support local restaurants.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Having eaten at Stella's several times, I have always had great experiences with the food and service. The only drawback to the restaurant is the noise level. I wish they would install some sound panels. I have tried a number of selections, and each is prepared with wonderful seasonings and a wonderful combination of ingredients which make it truly southern gourmet. Service was wonderful and the detailed descriptions by the waiter had my mouth watering even before I ordered. Although they do not have many choices of deserts, make sure you leave room to share one. They have a nice wine list and a full bar.
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our first trip to Stella's Southern Bistro, but it will not be the last. Everything was fantastic, from the appetizer through the coffee and dessert...and the service was even better. I cannot say enough good things about Stella's. Locally owned and sourced from area farms. Give it a try, you'll be glad you did.
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food but a bit loud
This place has great food! I really enjoy how they embrace using local products. Our waiter, Duke, was excellent. However, at times the noise level reached such heights that it was difficult to hear Duke while he was talking to us. Also our table arrangement put us in a semi-circle with the other couple that was with us. The noise level again would reach a height where we were yelling at each other to carry on our own conversation.
Great food, great service, reasonable prices, but if you are looking for a quiet, romantic place to eat you may want to consider somewhere else.
12/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
I could eat here every day. I want to go back as soon as possible. The menu was unbelievable and I wanted to try everything on the menu. The night I was there I had duck 5 ways: sausage, breast, confit, fritter and jambalaya. So good. Also, I had a salad that had sweet potato pound cake croutons on it. So good. I definitely recommend this place.
