    This is one of our top picks in OKC, and getting Jared as a waiter makes it even better! Ask for him when you get there and if you're lucky you will get to him before his other favorite customers. We recommend the brucshetta appetizer, heirloom tomato salad, verde short rib or sausage pizza (prime rib pizza when its back on the menu in fall), sausage pasta, their amazing fresh bread, and the candy bar dessert! LOVE IT!

    Have dined here many times and always pleased until most recent visit. Mussels overcooked-not fresh. They were inedible. Pasta dish with lobster cream sauce was missing said sauce- pasta covered with scant bit of out of the can tasting tomato sauce. Other entree had Italian sausage that was gray in appearance and had parts that were clearly undercooked. It was curious to note restaurant was not at all crowded at what typically is a very busy time for this restaurant. Not a good sign . Oh Stella, what has happened?

    The food was good, but overpriced for what you get. Presentation was awesome, but does not make up for the value of what you get. The expensive lump crab cake was shredded crab, not lump crab. The drink selection was very good as was the atmosphere. The waiter hovered and continuously interrupted conversations.

    Great Experience - custom bloody mary bar to start was awesome. The brunch prices are very reasonable for the quality and quantity of food provided. The crab cake is 99% crab with no filler & delicious. We also had the lemon pancakes and Italian French toast with the best whipped cream ever. We will definitely be back - probably for desert as we didn't have room on this trip.

    We celebrated our anniversary with 2 other couples. None of us had been to Stella before but it came highly recommended. It did not disappoint. It was delicious and cozy and fun. Their summer cocktail list was exceptional and we were all pleased with our dinner selections. We ordered a pizza as an appetizer, and it was gone in a matter of minutes. We would definitely go back!

    The food and service were excellent! Lamb ribs were spectacular! Crab pasta was delicious! We would have paid more for a meal of that quality. Our only issue would be our table was too close to our neighbor and they kept playing with the a/c. To top that, the a/c control was over our table.

    Food was uniformly excellent . The appetizer pizza and mussels and Brussels were enjoyed by all. All 6 diners raved about the meals ordered, which ranged from tenderloin to pasta to crab cakes. The desserts were varied and excellent. Portions were generously sized. We were celebrating a birthday, And I was thanked by the honoree and all guests for my restaurant choice.

    Had been wanting to try this restaurant for a while, finally got the chance. Food was excellent! Love the pan seared grouper and the Brussels sprouts were to die for! Service was great. Nicole was our server and she was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, friendly and professional. Ambiance was lovely, the noise level was just right. It wasn't too quiet, yet you couldn't hear everyone else's conversations. The decor is beautiful. Can't wait to come back.

    Not your local red sauce italian restaurant, which is why we like it. We started with the grilled vegetables with pesto, and followed that with the two current seafood pastas on the menu. Everything is always fresh with wonderful flavors. The wine list is well priced and always has some new interesting choices.
