  • "This was a first time for myself and my daughter going to a tapas restaurant. The wait staff was amazing and helpful. The food was amazing. My daughter has found her new birthday restaurant"

  • "I meant to go here once with a friend of mine, but we were unable to get a table. This place books up, so I'd highly recommend making reservations in advance! I came with a party of 5, and we were seated at a table of ample size in the back. It was an energetic environment with a lot of chatter around us... exactly as I had envisioned that it would be. Fun for a group. What really makes this place a solid winner is the food. Every single dish was absolutely delicious (and I tried almost everything on the table)!! We dropped $150... so beware- the dishes add up quickly. My favorite dishes of the night were the lobster mac and cheese, the arancini, calamari (with the house sauce yum!), and the molten chocolate cake dessert. YUM!"

  • "Title pretty much sums up my experience. The food and drinks are wonderful. It is a great concept for a restaurant very unique for the city. However it is terribly loud even at a small table my friend and I seemed to be yelling to even talk to each other. Service was poor, very stuck up waitress not to mention waiting about 20 mins for her to come and take a drink order and hand us menus."

  • "We tried 6-7 tapas plates. Everything was outstanding. The host was pathetic. On arrival, he informed us our table wasn't ready. After being prompted, he said it would be ready "soon" and "go stand over there" (pointing to the end of the bar, near the middle of the dining room). Midway through the meal, our waitress needed to rearrange the dining room (at 8:00 PM on a Saturday night) and asked us to move our table 3 feet and then jammed two more tables on top of us. The bartender; however, was great. She was very attentive and nice. Noise level was extremely high; you could barely hear the conversation, but again, it was prime time Saturday night. All in all, I'd go again for the food, but would try to pick a less crowded time."

  • "We've been here several times and they never fail to impress us. Whether you sample from their cheese platter, dive into their tapas from across the world, or just stop by to taste some rare beers, delicious drinks and wonderful wine section - you will NOT be disappointed. All their servers are friendly and personable! We recently went with a group for a birthday and it was absolutely perfect!"

  • "We met friends for dinner at Stella Blu and it was a perfect choice! Delicious tapas were perfect for sharing for the table and we enjoyed trying so many dishes. The layout of the restaurant is beautiful with a long curved ceiling, copper colored walls, and a long curving bar that leads you around to a seating area perfect for quieter conversations. Love this place, and even our gluten free family members can eat hear happily!"

  • "Stella Blue was a great find! We ordered a variety of tapas and there was nothing that was not absolutely delicious. Love the way the menu is divided into categories, such as Italian, Asian, etc. The bar area was very active, and the tables near the bar would be very loud and crowded. We were glad to be seated in the back and would request a table in that location in the future."

  • "First timer at restaurant, tapas restaurant so we tried a number of small plates, Kobe burgers were absolutely outstanding, empanadas were our second favorite but have to say all was very good. Really liked the ambiance, hip and sophisticated. Go for the bar ambiance but you'll return for the food."

    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food and service are very good. We were disappointed they didn't have the 5 course valentines special like they did in 2013. Their social media presence has died off which may have given us a heads up about this. Over all this place is good and I would go back."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was great, and came out of the kitchen quickly. The server, average. We had reservations for over a month, and somehow got seated in the bar, 5 feet away from the blender and the area where the wait staff gathers to (loudly) socialize. It was difficult to have a nice romantic dinner with my husband over all that noise and such. Overall, I was kind of disappointed by the experience."

  • "We made reservations at Stella Blu for valentines day. The food was amazing, our server Dan was great, and our all around experience was awesome!"

  • "Cocktails were creative, tasted great and finished well. Food was really excellent all around. We were a group of eight and ordered rounds of tapas to share - the food came out quickly. Service was great while we were doing the food, but a little slow before we got started (taking drink orders) and afterwards (getting the check)."

  • "My new fiancé and I dine her frequently. We absolutely love the atmosphere at this downtown gem. Saturdays are usually upbeat with live music and Sundays are more quiet and relaxing. The staff is very attentive to you and are always extremely nice. Excellent beer and wine selection as well; they have one of my favorite beers there, Matilda from Goose Island. The hanger steak, pulled pork sliders and seared scallops are favorite dishes of my fiancé and I and we high recommend indulging in these. Almost forgot, try the cremé brule!"

  • "This was our fifth time to dine at Stella Blu and this time was as great as the first time several years ago. The tapas are always unique, the wait staff is always intelligent, informative and fun, and the atmosphere is always comfortable for people in their 60's or their 30's. This is a place where business people, artistic people, convivial people like to linger. By the way . . . an order of Stella Fries to go is great back in your hotel room the next morning. No kidding."

  • "We love Stella Blu! We celebrated Mother's Day, my daughter's birthday and my husband's birthday here. The wait staff is great. The tapas is tasty and creative. Their cocktails are also yummy! One of our favorite places. Highly recommended."

  • "Martinis were very good. Service was very good as well. Food left much to be desired. Started with cheese plate which appeared to come from an ordinary supermarket cheese selection. First two tapas plates did not impress. The risotto balls and the scallops left alot to be desired after reading the menu. The duck crepes were good/"

  • "Tapas menu is Great! We had 7 in our party, and ordered two each of seven items. We all tried everything and all was delicious. We had more than enough food, in fact a little left over. Fun, great service, Wonderful food....a Great experience!!"

  • "I've been to Stella Blu many times, they consistently meet or exceed my expectations. Besides providing excellent food and drink, they feature live music on Friday and Saturday and have very friendly staff. They make it a point to make sure you enjoy yourself providing a great balance between giving you space and helping you enhance your experience. Their bartenders are top-notch and have many signature drinks worth ordering. Even if you aren't a big drinker, their food is worth the stop. Keep it up."

  • "Stella Blu was where my girlfriends and I decided to have a dinner together to exchange Christmas presents. The bar area is beautifully decorated and the bar wraps around to the dining room. The dining room has a completely different feel than the bar area and the two decors are not cohesive. The food is fabulous and the idea of tapas from different countries/regions is phenomenal. There are vegetarian and lighter options available for the health conscientious diner. Anne was our server and she was great. Very attentive yet not over bearing and extremely friendly. Everyone one in our party was pleased with the experience and would definitely recommend it to our friends."

  • "Great food. Very good cocktails. Loud . Better suited to a younger crowd (20's-30's) . But I would still go back. Kitchen had a hard time keeping up. Food was inconsistent temp wise. Some plates were hot. Some cool. One cold. Server brought plate out to one in our group. The rest waited 20 minutes for their food. Not servers fault. Still, food was very good from a taste and presentation standpoint."

  • "This was probably about my 10th visit I enjoy the food very much and I always tell people too make a trip and you won't be disappointed. Me like always bringing someone new with this visit my expectations fell a little short. Upon arriving through the door only one bar tender being in clear view of us walking through the door did not great us nor acknowledge us until about 5 mins after sitting at the bar while mind you only maybe 3 other tables in the place total at the time. After about 20 mins we finally placed an order and her personality was still no where to be found. I Have worked in the business for years you can't be like that especially with all the competition in the area and we picked your place and drove a long distance."

  • "Found it! We were looking for a different dining experience for a night out with another couple. Stella Blu fit the bill with its new take on tapas. We had a wonderful time trying lots of interesting foods without feeling stuffed or breaking the bank. Great waitress, also."

  • "Love the food but was not impressed with the service. Waitress kept forgetting our alcohol orders- more than once we would wait over 15 mins for a drink and have to flag her down to which she would respond "oh sorry" and run and get the drink we were waiting on. To be fair they seemed very understaffed? The host was also filling water for people and running around. The staff looked extremely stressed"
