  • "It was fun but smelled fishy. Good music and crowd"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We ordered the fresh fish, oscar style and my wife's order was cold and we had to send it back."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "We loved every second of being at Stella's. The food was absolutely delicious, drinks were fabulous, and the atmosphere was so fun! We have a wonderful waitress with great personality and wonderful suggestions. We will definitely be going back!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We ate on the upper rooftop and saw the sunset on a lovely day. It was awesome."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Arrived to hostess knowing nothing of our opentable res. showed her confirmation email and they got us right in. Probably would have been the same without the res. servers brought all the food at the same time. Appetizers and main courses in one big bolus. Food was good. Drinks were good."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The Lobster pot for two is incredible! Huge portions, great service."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "we had the mussels, crab cake, peel and eats and they were all excellent. cocktails were creative and tasty. Have a good time in the outdoors"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "The seating was uncomfortable, the noise level was loud, the service was strained and the Halibut was dry and tasteless. I believe the others in the party were OK with the quality of food."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "We arrived to celebrate upcoming new job-waitress was very upbeat and described the slight bar wait due to one bartender during this busy time-but still was great service. The Sunday happy hour timing and menu and prices were wonderful and we will most definately return. Also had drinks on upstairs/outside patio and that was a great experience too-fun place to be. But if there are activities outdoors around this area its hard to get parking even in ramp across street so be aware and plan extra time and it will be great."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "We've eaten at Stella's before and had great food and service. Love eating outside on the rooftop. This time, on a Sunday evening, there were a surprising number of quite drunk young people having trouble negotiating the crowd and stairs. The food was good, although not as good as I had remembered. Our waiter could hardly be bothered to wait on us, very slow with drinks, dirty dishes left on the table, even after asking for them to be removed. I actually ended up moving them to another dirty table while we waited (20 min) for our desert to arrive. The best I can say about the evening is that it was beautiful to sit outside."

  • "Enjoyed the great view from the roof top. The food and service was great. It was a perfect night out with friends."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The food was excellent. Nice menu. Limited vegetarian options (salads). The food was fancy-restaurant quality; the ambiance was bordering on sports bar. Good combination for a gathering of friends, maybe not for a romantic evening."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Chose Stella's for my birthday celebration and they don't even give you a complimentary piece of cake which is disappointing. Chef's specials were out of this world delicious. Brought out one entrée that was incorrect and it took a while to get it back which makes all the others in the party uncomfortable eating in front of the person waiting for their food. This is not ok. Probably won't be celebrating our birthdays at Stellas for the expensive pricing you'd think they'd make you feel special on your day."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We had reservations. A special birthday night. When we arrived we were told that they don't make reservations for the patio. We were disappointed. We decided to see what they had inside the stuffy 1st floor. We were led to a table at the top of the stairs. It wasn't very special or romantic, like we had asked for. We asked for a seat by the window and were led to a table with half a window. We were still trying to make the best of it when the busboy arrived and quickly slopped water into the glasses. I think he aimed for the glasses but most went on my wife's lap. We left."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Food is super salty! Not even one of our orders tasted good--won't even pass for ok. Waiter was not so pleasant nor accommodating. Place for outdoor dining is fine but not so great.. Would NOT recommend this place at all."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "I really enjoy dining at Stella's. The food and service is always excellent and their groupon deals are amazing!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Fish was good but after adding all the extras it got expensive. Service was fair - busy on the rooftop patio - great veiw!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "The crab cakes are to die for and the parmesan crusted walleye melts in your mouth! The rooftop offers a great view of the downtown skyline. Overall, there is nothing to be dissatisfied with at Stella's except, perhaps, for the prices. Definitely not an every week excursion on my budget, but worth the splurge on occasion."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "My wife and I returned to Stella's after many years. We both went for the first time when we were engaged; she treated me there for my birthday. We remembered the food was super good. We went back for our 6th wedding anniversary, and the food is still super good. It's a little noisy, but worth it."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "I'm sure Stella's must have just had a bad night. The food was cold. My Chef's creation was not good - parmesan crusted Halibut was tough and sat on a pile of mushy mashed potatoes. There were four tiny asparagus under the potatoes. Disappointing."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "My family and I took our father (90yrs) for an early Father's Day dinner. Last year was his first experience dining at Stella's rooftop and he enjoyed it. We enjoyed our meal and the server was excellent. My daughter had to send her plate back, but the server was gracious and didn't miss a beat in continuous excellent service. If you are a non smoker the rooftop can be quite annoying with smokers."

  • "Great special of a lobster and sirloin. Fish taco appetizer was EXCELLANT!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Happy to see more soups, salads, and more kinds of fish/seafood."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Stella's. The food is very good, though a little pricy. The weather cooperated on the day of our visit and we were able to sit up on their roof deck. It is a WONDERFUL place to eat. Our server was very friendly, though a little slow. We had a group of 5, everyone had something different, and everyone enjoyed their meal. The cajun beef with bernaise and the calamari were wonderful appetizers. Lobster bisque is tasty with generous pieces of lobster. My blackened shrimp tacos were moist and tender. We were there on Fathers Day so there were a LOT of kids. But yeah, we'll go back."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Went for lunch and had oysters, blackened swordfish and the lobster roll. All were outstanding. We'll keep coming back."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "There are at least three great things about Stella's - the oysters, the rooftop seating and the service. We enjoyed all three on Father's Day. The Sunday night Lobster special is also excellent although we didn't have it this time. The sushi rolls are good but not as good as other restaurants that focus on sushi. My only real complaint is that the indoor seating isn't great. There are about 5 booths that are cozy but the free-standing tables seem randomly placed and the high-tops have stool/chairs that are too low."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Came to Stella's to celebrate my birthday with my wife and daughter. It was my first time at Stella's and it was very memerable. Love the susi it was the best I've ever had. Would definitely recomend Stella's for any occasion."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Four people ordered lobster. Mine was not edible.....unchewable. Three in my party said theirs was all right. My lobster was replaced with scallops which were under cooked. It took a very long time to get a coffee refill. I cannot think of one reason why I would go back."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "My wife and two daughters joined me for diner at Stellas This was our first time dining with them. The reservation was perfect and we were seated immediately. The waiter was attentive and informed. He coached us through ordering, and when he noticed an indecision between asparagus and mashed potatoes on one order, brought a complementary mashed potato for the table to try. Great Food, Super Service, ONEderful time with Family!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We were promised and called to confirm a rooftop reservation but when we arrived we were told we would have to be put on a list to wait for our table even though we were promised rooftop seating. They would not even honor our reservation to be placed in front of walk-in tables on the rooftop. If I would have known this we would have gone somewhere else. The staff knows of this problem and has not fixed it and will not even take responsibility for the confusion. Incredibly disappointing and frustrating."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "My husband and i got to sit on the roof top. the service was good, food was excellent! I even took my service dog and the waiter was very respectful of him."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "We had a wonderful dinner! Brought 2/3 of our group who had never been to Stella's and now they are hooked!"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Put name/phone number in with outdoor hostess and was told it should be a short wait as only one reservation in front of us. Didn't receive notification after 20 minutes so checked with hostess who had no record of our checking in. Waited about 10 more minutes (so about 30 minutes in total) and finally got table. Food came and mashed potatoes were cold. One order was for salmon and it was undercooked and cold. Spent $240 for dinner for four, which included one drink each. Way overpriced for what we received. Not planning to return."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Service slow, didnt explain specials, didnt explain happy hour, appetizers cold & waited 30 mins for them, Lobster undercooked, Oysters were warm, calamari less then palm size serving."

  • "Great food, great service Stella never disappoints! "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "We've dined here many times, in the Winter indoors in the comfortable dining room, and in the summer on the roof top which has great ambiance. The food was tasty, as usual. The service was a bit abrupt......as in eat, drink and leave please....so we can fill the table again."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "The food and our server were both wonderful. We made reservations and did not have to wait long for our table. On the way to our table we inquired about the patio since we had listed that as a special request on the reservation. It is very busy on the patio in the summer but thought we would ask how long the wait was anyways, the man who sat us was very rude answering our question. He stated that oh sure we can wait for the patio if we want to wait two hours in a very smirky tone.... we didn't really appreciate the comment since we were just asking. "

  • "Have been to Stella's several times and the food was even better than usual this last time. Took the in-laws and they were very pleased and seem to be planning a return visit soon. Great appetizer variety. One of our favorite parts is that the entrees are appropriately sized so you can enjoy your appetizer AND still have room for your meal."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "initial reception by hostess(es) was less than enthusiastic, and kind of blow-off-ish as was the bartending staff (we were a bit early and wanted to have a drink before being seated, but the bartender(s) seemed oblivious to us). Our server was great - about the only redeeming part of our dining experience. Food: neither my wife's halibut, nor my ahi tuna were anything to write home about. Fair to good, but certainly not great. Nothing about Stella's would overwhelm us to return, unless it was to possibly meet with friends for a quick drink, but likely not stay for dinner."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Loved, loved, loved our entire experience at Stella's! Our server was fun, helpful, and very prompt. We had two appetizers (beef bites and spinach/crab dip), swordfish, salmon, and lobster for lunch. The food was nothing less than amazing. It was a great day to be out on the rooftop too! "
