Diner Reviews
  • "Although the food is quite good, I (gluten-intolerant person) can't give even 4 stars for a nice restaurant where the only gluten-free edibles are salads and maybe icky mussels. However, the ambience is nice, music isn't too loud, and the waiters and phenomenal. My gluten eating family says what they ate was great."

  • "We had Easter brunch at Stella's and liked it. The music was a bit loud and wasn't very good as far as dinner music. More night club like. Food was good, although the Lamb was scarce. More potatoes than anything, but what was there was very good. We'll be back for lunch during a weekday to see what the fare is then."

  • "Food exceptional, service attentive but not intrusive. A very special place to dine. Great value for one's money. Will be back when we visit OKC"

  • "To say that Stella batted 1000 the night that we dined there, in celebration of my wife's birthday, would be an awkward metaphor, so I'll just say that they hit it out of the park. This place now ranks right up there, in my opinion, with a select group of restaurants that are worth the money for for the dining experience. We started with the "Artisan Cheeses" Appetizer. I had the Calamari and Mussels with Linguini. My wife ordered the Crab Pasta. The food, service and ambiance combined to make it feel like taking a trip to the coast of Italy. After the meal, we savored the Midtown atmosphere, making the evening a truly memorable experience that should not be missed. We will definitely be going back for another special occasion. "

  • "Stella's is a well-attended, "happening place" where everyone seems to know everyone else. When you first walk into the entry, you'll see these comfortable cushioned settees with small tables strategically located for customers' convenience. The restaurant is small and personable with a sophisticated metropolitan flair, without the toady. The food was exceptional, we had their mouthwatering appetizer, a bruschetta sampler, and the pizza "special of the day". For those who love wine, you're sure to find your favorite without being overwhelmed with a long list of reading. We'll be coming back!"

  • "My family and I have dined several times at this restaurant, and have found all aspects (service, food quality, ambience) to be consistently very good. It's an excellent location for special occasions, or for brunch; although I haven't dined there for dinner, I'm confident the same applies. "

  • "When we got there, they were friendly and timely. The food was to die for. Try the gelato. It's legitimately better than any ice cream I've ever had (and I've tried 90% of the ice cream places in OKC.)"

  • "I have been there twice in the past week, and both experiences were great. We had family from out of town on Sunday, and she was quite impressed, which is saying a lot because she has lived all over the world."

  • "This was my first experience and the food was excellent, loved the modern flair. The pasta and sausage were great, loved that it was not swimming in sauce"

  • "I have wanted to try Stella's for some time & every time I am scheduled to go with a friend something happens & we have to cancel. We had the linguini special & it was good but nothing special. The bread was good but the olive oil dipping sauce was just OK. This was a little disappointing because we spent more for lunch than usual & it wasn't as good as we thought it would be from its reputation. Maybe I will try this again, but again the taste did not support the cost. Probably just what we ordered. Service & ambience was very good & the noise level was good enough for a business luncheon. Signed - lunchoutwithfriends"

  • "Everyone enjoyed thier meal. The pizzas and sandwiches were great however the side salad was a little small for the cost."

  • "My wife and I had our anniversary dinner and we were both disappointed. The Appetizer and dessert was very good, but the main dishes were bland. I had the lump crab pasta and my wife had the braised pork risotto. Mine was not hot and bland but very, very lemony, both of us only ate less than half each. Not worth the money, for what you pay I would expect much better."

  • "Service was great, server took her time with us, wine list is good, with interesting selections, but the food was sub par. So many thingswere off (bland, way way over-salted, texturally odd, or just plain boring), I can't even begin..."

  • "What a fun evening we had savoring the likes of Mussel Brussels, don't miss this one! Flatbread pizza always satisfies. Hands down top three Bloody Bar in town for brunch, too. Appropriately attentive staff, never far away."

  • "Had a delicious brunch and a nice Bloody Mary bar!!!"

  • "We went to celebrate with friends. There is always something new on the menu that appeals to a wide variety of tastes. The cocktails are fantastic (some of the best in the area) and wine list also very good. A great place to bring out of towners. Still it's become one of our regular go-to-venues."

  • "The entire evening with our friends was awesome. It was a first time venture for our friends and they were so impressed they said it would be a "Do Over" for them."

  • "We went to Stella on a busy Saturday night, when all of downtown OKC was crowded, but we were seated right at the time of our reservation and served in friendly, timely fashion. The food was delicious - I highly recommend the pappardelle with lump crab and asparagus - and our waiter was charming and attentive. The only off-note was our table. I realize it was a busy night, but we were seated right outside the kitchen door in a corner of what seemed to be an overflow room. The table placement could have been better, but it's a minor quibble in an otherwise very nice experience."

  • "First timer. Looked up website looking for vegeterian possibilities, decided to try it. Went expecting wonderful, got amazing and more. From begining to end we were charmed by our waiter Patrick. Unmatched service, food cooked perfectly for all dishes. You cannot get better food anywhere that i know of. Not just fresh flowers on the tables but gorgeous tulips and the largest freesia I have ever seen, which makes an enormous statement for commitment to pleasurable detail. I give Stella 25 thumbs up and will recommend to all I know, dont wait to try it!"

  • "Food is delicious and the over all atmosphere of the restaurant is fun with a modern vibe. I would highly recommend Stella to anyone wanting a great night out!"

  • "Our waitress was helpful and patient as our group decided on wine and entrees. She was very knowledgeable of the menu and was a great resource in regards to the food choices and wine pairings. Can't wait to return next time I am in town."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Although I have only lunched and brunched here I would recommend for dinner too. I must admit upon my visit this week I discovered they aren't carrying my fav white wine. However staff found me a new fav. Dont leave Stella without having dessert. They have all been delicious but none hold a candle to the deconstructed candy bar. Always great service and care."

  • "This was our first trip to Stella, but I'd heard great thing about it from my colleagues. Thankfully - it lived up to all expectations! All of the food was delicious, and the service was great. We will definitely be back."

  • "Service was excellent, bit I thought food was overpriced for small portion and wasn't very flavorful. Seems more like a status symbol restaurant, spent $102 for 2 people."

  • "Lori and the team at Stella do an amazing job of bringing unique, fresh ingredients to the table with their ever changing seasonal menus. Every time I am at Stella's I try some thing different and have yet to be disappointed. They are also very accommodating if you have food allergies."

  • "Service was slow, but pleasant. The seasonal vegetable app was not very hot upon arrival. I thought the salmon entree was overpriced given what was on plate. Pork risotto was great. There are other spots in town that give a better bang for the buck."

  • "Have wanted to dine here for quite a while. Finally made it last week. The food was marginal and the service was practically non-existent We were with another couple all of us ordered something different. The best thing we ate were the grilled veggies that were an appetizer. It took much time and effort to get additional bread. We won't go back."

  • "Bruschetta and artisan bread were amazing. Caesar salad was also good. Entrees were not special. Pasta with crab cake had an extremely small amount of crab and a bit over the top with lemon. Chicken scallopini was ok. Service was vg and staff was very friendly."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We were late for our reservation, however the wait staff was patient and understanding and even sat us in the only booth in the restaurant. The service was great along with the appetizer, entree and dessert. We will be back again! Thank you!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I'm not sure where to begin. We ordered dinner with salads, and the salads came after the entree was brought out. The dinner salad was outrageously priced for a few leafy greens. The restaurant operates like a brand new restaurant, but they have been opened for quite some time. Very disappointed with the food portion as well. If you have money to throw away...go for it. Save it for Zio's or Olive Garden. The ambience is mediocre and looks like a poor restaurant. They really need to work on the decor that's for sure. Plastic chairs...not my style."

  • "We went to dinner on Valentines' day - often not the best time for a relaxing dining experience. When I booked one month out the only time slot left was 6 PM. I feared that the waiter might hover and make us feel rushed, but that was NOT the case in the least. We were treated like we were part of the neighborhood as if we were Friday night regulars. The meal was excellent, flavor rich and pleasingly presented."
