A word from Stella 34 Trattoria
With sixth-floor views of the Empire State building and three wood-burning ovens, Stella 34 Trattoria is a modern trattoria and the dining star of Macy’s flagship store.

Executive Chef Jarett Appell offers Neapolitan pizza from wood-burning ovens with fior di latte mozzarella, Caputo flour imported from Naples, San Marzano tomatoes from the foothills of Mt. Vesuvius and water meticulously sourced from local wells to match the pH and mineral balance of the natural spring water in Naples. The menu showcases al forno entrées, house-made pasta, “piccoli piatti” – signature antipasti designed for sharing - and an all-Italian wine list of more than 100 bottles.

Open 7 days a week for lunch, lounge & dinner. Direct access from the street is available via dedicated express elevators at Macy’s Broadway & 35th Street entrance.

  • "Very underrated; located in Macy's 6th floor (?!). $20 for pasta was a little much, but the view of herald square was incredible. Beautiful interior."

  • "It's restaurant week so one expects the limited menu, but shouldn't that make it easier on the staff? The cod was tasty and perfectly cooked but didn't sit well next to a very vinegar-y greens. Pizzas are first rate with delicious crust."

    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "This is truly a trattoria. The perfect place for a drink and a bite. You do not need to be shopping at MACYS to enjoy this destination. There is an express elevator at Herald Square and 35th Street. It whisks you directly to the 6th floor. We started with a prosciutto and cheese board. It was delicious. Then, we shared a pizza. The combinations are a bit whimsical. We wondered what the chef was thinking. Also, loved the mimosa with elderberry(?). I hesitated to order it because some of the ingredients were unfamiliar. The server, a newbie from Ohio, was so gracious. She said, "try it if you don't like it I will bring you something else". That spirit is exuded throughout the staff. I do recommend reservations. party or 4+ ask for a view."

  • "The best thing about Stella's is that you totally forget that you're in a department store. They did such a fine job of making it a restaurant, and the dedicated elevator is part of that. The "duck salad" was more duck than salad, but really tasty. Very rich - if you're looking for something light, don't order it. Poorly described on the menu, but quite delicious. The veal tonato was a disappointment. Quality of the veal was very good, but served with very little tuna sauce. We asked for more and got it, but it was very bland in flavor. Prices are very high for what you're getting, but what the heck. It's a fun place."

  • "this was the second visit here for me and it was as good as the first. Service , food and ambience were all very good. this is located on the 6th floor of Macy's - if you get a window table I think it makes the experience even better. I highly recommend Stellas for busines or casual lunch - I have not visited for dinner"
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "wow, department store dining brought to a whole new level. Not only innovative food but a great view to boot. Can't wait to return to try some of the other great sounding appy's and entrees. Professional, knowledgeable servers and a neat room."

  • "Have been here 12 times since last summer...!! Who would think a restaurant housed in Macy's would be this hip and with great food to match... Totally great..."

  • "Read reviews and wanted to try Stella's for a light dinner as we were staying in a nearby hotel. We were seated right away and enjoyed a nice table with a view of Herald Square. The eggplant was perfect and the margarita pizza was also quite nice. Very good service and certainly a good choice in this neighborhood for dining."

  • "We were celebrating our 32nd wedding anniversary. The veal meatballs were soft and luscious. Our dinner of linguine with mushrooms, asparagus , and peas was delicious. Our dinner of escarole pasta w guancale, red onion and bread crumbs was excellent if you like a little spice. This was a very unique dish. The service was excellent!"
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Lovely space in a store, which really needed to provide it's masses with a dining choice; however, the drinks arrived long after ordering and after delivery of the first course. The pizza was a little stiff and felt like it had sat under a heat lamp while my daughter's pasta was cooked.. The portions are a little skimpy and prioces not so! Value, therefore, lacking. I am also wondering why no larger vessels of wine are offered? or why every drink is approx. $13 +... not so in many other similar venues...."

  • "Crazy awesome midtown find in of all places, Macy's. I worked in the area from 2000-2010, left for a job in the 60s on the east side and just came back to Herald Sq area in January of 2014 so was missing for four years. Macy's itself has gotten a total facelift and looks awesome, and now this amazing restaurant. I was skeptical - extremely skeptical but my dining mates promised I would love it. From the minute I walked in I felt like i was transported to Europe - it's beautiful. Original flooring which is a nice detail but enough about scenery the food. We all shared a salad, pasta entree and pizza. Everything was amazing - seriously. They make their own bread - super delish. I highly reco to this spot, it's a gem. Go here now."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "This restaurant is located on the 6th floor of Macy's with beautiful views. It is consistently wonderful. Everyone we have taken here has loved it. THey have a huge bar, lots of tables, and cook in the wood oven. It is bright and airy with large windows that look out to New York. The sea bass is incredible. My husband loves the charcuterie. You can build you own board and it comes with garlicky olives, crisoy salty crackers and pickles. The sale with proscuitto (Napoli salad) is one of my favorites. My niece loved her pizza. You have to experience it to believe it."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "To get to Stella's, you have to go to Macy's and get on an elevator to the 6th floor. To say it's unexpected is an understatement. If you turn right off the elevator, you can buy sheets. Left, you can have a great dining experience. Nice views in a fun atmosphere. Great, friendly -- and fast -- service. Food was very good. Apps especially. And I had a class of excellent (and cheaply priced) chianti. Noise level is high -- definitely high-energy -- but not so high that you can't have a conversation. Great place, and we'll definitely be back."

  • "I work in the area, and me and my work colleagues and clients really like Stella 34 for lunch. We are regulars, which says a lot, because we're picky. GSW"

  • "This is a wonderful break from the usual crowded bistro's in Herald Square. Open Table reservation was confirmed the same morning and acknowledged at entry. Menu is diverse enough for a good lunch selection, and service is attentive and fast."

  • "The service was excellent. I loved the view. The food was tasty, but the portions were pitiful. As we were leaving we heard the same from others. I thought it was way too pricey for what you get."

  • "The place is lovely -- so wide open and bright and modern. Even the restroom was excellent -- and unusual. We enjoyed the food and drink and the server was attentive to our every need. It was altogether a very enjoyable evening."

  • "I have never been to Stella 34 before but I was very pleased with the food and atmosphere. The location is right in the heart of midtown and it very convenient to find. The atmosphere was nicely lit and the tables were spaced out unlike many NYC restaurants that has everyone on top of one another. The service was at a good pace and our waiter was friendly and helpful. The food portions were of an average size and full of flavor. Delicious Prosecco, tasty veal meatballs, and yummy pizza at a reasonable price for NYC. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to a friend and I will definitely be back to dine again!"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Cool place. It's a nice respite from the touristic morass that is midtown. Nice views, pretty ambiance. It's true, the acoustics aren't ideal for a business lunch but serviceable. I was surprised by how good my pasta was. I am pretty picky. It had pieces of lobster, pancetta atop an arugula pasta which was well cooked. My client didn't seem to love her Neapolitan pizza but it looked quite good to me. This place is recommended for a nicer than average business lunch at a reasonable price. Two people can get out of there for 50 dollars or so. The one negative is that the service got less and less, and it was a struggle to flag our waitress down for the check. I would recommend they look into that. Business lunches must be quick!"

  • "This was my second visit to Stella 34. Both visits we had a party of 8 or 9 and the staff was very accommodating. Some guests may think service is a little slow, but if you are looking for a dinner in a non - rushed atmosphere, then this the spot. They kept our water glasses full and cleared our plates in a timely manner but are not trying to turn the table quickly. In both occasions the staff handled our party well and had a good sense of humor."

  • "First of all life long New Yawker. And I love being one and have always loved Macy's. Even now when TOO MANY people but the redone version is pretty nice. Moving on to the restaurant. GREAT FIND! Who knew that this could happen at Macy's. Private elevator. Behind bedding apparently. Lovely looking place. I sat at the bar and chatted with Brij, the bartender the entire time. Delightful experience. Good wine. Food was pretty darn good too and portions are quite good. I definitely plan on going back. You would not know where you are but of course you are in the most recognizable Store in the world! A definite go to"

  • "The last place I expected to find a great restaurant was in a department store. What a pleasant surprise to find great reviews of Stella 34 Trattoria on the sixth floor of Macy's. And the restaurant lived up to its reviews. My son had risotto and I had the margarita pizza. Both were delicious, as was the salad we shared. We couldn't resist the gelato for dessert and it was fabulous. Our Italian waiter was great, very attentive and made excellent suggestions to make our dinner a great experience. We wouldn't hesitate to return."
    Dined on 6/16/2014

  • "Very limited selection of food. No salad included with main course of only 2 manicotti. Main selection was not hot when delivered, and was only mediocre for taste/quality. Price of alcoholic beverages very expensive. Given that there is a captive audience below (the store was very very busy, but the restaurant was not), more should be done to entice these folks to your restaurant, which enjoys a great location."
