Diner Reviews
  • "I had the walleye and it was absolutely delicious."
    Dined on 8/28/2014
  • "I hosted a surprise birthday dinner for my fiance and it was great! The vibe/atmosphere was perfect, not too quiet and not too loud. The food?? Goodness gracious, AMAZING!!! The scallops, coconut shrimp w/homemade cocktail sauce and spicy pineapple marmalade, skillet hashbrowns (A MUST for leftover breakfast!!!), jalapeno cornbread, crunchy shrimp roll, jambalaya, asparagus, seafood pasta, and chicken wings (these were perfectly crunchy, but definitely need some seasoning!) were all PERFECT!!! The prices were a bit high, especially in relation to the portion sizes, but the food was good nonetheless. Unfortunately I never did catch our server's name, but she was GREAT! She made sure to always check on us. I definitely recommend Stella's!"
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "Disappointed Stella's did not send me a message that they did not reserve outdoor tables after I specifically asked for that when I made the reservation. Pretty expensive for a whole family when you have to wait at the bar for your table."
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "We had 17 people and this was too big. Server was pleasant but obviously stretched a bit thin. Food was very good."
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "Had reservation and on arrival was asked if we wanted in or outside seating. We opted for out and proceeded to the roof only to find out that our reservation meant nothing out there. Hoatess led us to believe we would be seated right away and now it's a long wait. After a lot of back and forth with the manager we sat inside and had a great dinner with great service, although there was an issue with no substitutions that was another wrinkle in the experience. Scallops were fabulous."
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "This meal leaves nothing to be desired. Every course is superb."
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "Lobster boil was fabulous and the wait staff was exceptional, right down to packaging the leftovers! Highly recommend waiting for the roof top seating, weather permitting of course!"
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "Went in for the lobster bake, and the food was absolutely fantastic. The service was friendly and efficient. Menu is creative, can't wait to go back and try the rest of the menu."
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "My family goes to Stella's a few times a year. We usually go for a special occasion or when family is in town. I've never been disappointed with Stella's great food and service! This time I had a Groupon for the lobster bake; I took my boyfriend who was visiting from the navy. We got drinks and calamari on the rooftop before, and decided to have our meal up there. The wine was okay, not great. The lobster bisque soup, however; was very good! The salad was average and the lobster was cooked perfectly. It came with shrimp and muscles, which were also very good. We enjoyed our evening. Love Stella's!"
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "I ordered the Lobster and it was great. The garlic mashed potatoes were tasty as well. My husband had the parmesan crusted halibat and thought it was very good. We waited 20 minutes for our dessert to come as they only had one person staffed on a Sat. Night. Otherwise, it was a fun sitting outside on there patio which overlooked the city on a nice evening!"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "I made the reservation through your site & then followed up with a phone call to request a table on the roof top, which the staff member confirmed. Upon arrival, 20 minutes early, was informed by the hostess that they don't reserve rooftop tables. But, we could go up and put our name in. Which we did and were told we were 17th in line. We left, vowing never to return."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Walleye was very good, but only got 10 french fries and a tea spoon of tarter sauce in a paper cup. Scallops were rubbery, and mashed potatos were dry...needed butter"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Stellas outdoor patio is one of the best spots in the summer. Food is fantastic. Service is always above average."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Two of the three fish plates were very good, the third was overdone. Potatoes were to dry, asparagus was very good. Waiter was excellent, even heard us talk about my mom's birthday and brought us cake as a complete suprise."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "The roof top is great for the summer. We had a great time sitting up top and the strawberry basil martini I had was fantastic. The scallops with the avocado rice dish was just okay. The scallops didn't have a great flavor. I love scallops, but my taste buds weren't liking them. The avocado rice dish on the side was good, however."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "We enjoy stopping at Stella's for Happy Hour and a bite to eat!"
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "Took a friend from out if town here to show off the young and trendy Mpls scene. We ate on the rooftop patio, which was great in terms of weather and a view of the city. A bit of a wait for a Tuesday, but worth it. Food was amazing! Great service and great people-watching. I will definitely go back."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "Music was VERY noisey causing people to raise their voices to have conversation. We were sat at a table that was in line of busboy cart moving dishes to and from the kitchen. One of the individuals at our table has to adjust his chair twice to let busboy by."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • " My drink (the Uptown) was tasteless/watery. Waiter offered to get me something else but said the bartender was rather new. Instead we 'doctored' it up until it was 'OK;. One entree was the Coconut Shrimp and was quite sub-par; similar to what you might expect at a much lesser establishment. The fish tacos were cold; potatoes and asparagus were cold on the fish entree plates. Bottom line: It was a high ticket price for a disappointing dinner."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "I made a reservations and specified in the comment that I wanted to be rooftop, but when I arrived I was told you cannot make reservations for the rooftop so we had to wait about 45 minutes for a table for 4 because there was 15 people ahead of us. It was pretty annoying, and majority of the hostesses are rude and "busy" on their phones. But the waitresses are always great."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Had the lobster pot/bake. Soup and salad before hand were both outstanding. Lobster was overdone. Shrimp in lobster pot also over cooked, reminded me of the shriveled up frozen ones u buy in store."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "We had a nice server, but the food was mediocre and dry, for the price go somewhere else and get better tasting food or eat bar food and spend far less."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "This was our second visit and all 4 of us ate different choices and all enjoyed their meals"
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "This is our favorite spot for oysters when the weather cooperates to be able to dine on the rooftop. Too bad the new higher structures are obscuring the downtown skyline but it still is impressive. Early lunch is a great time so you don't have to wait for seating outside."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "As always, best champagne mussles ever! Sunday night might have been the worst service there yet (I come at least once a month). We were seated on the patio and the hostess up on top was so out of it and was texting on her phone the whole time (we were seated right next to the host station). Our server was so dissapointing. I asked for a refill on water and got it 30+minutes later, she came to our table only to take our orders, and bring the bill. It took a long time to get our food and get our bill. I will continue to come back because the food is so good, but the service was not up to par."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Ate on rooftop for my daughter's 20th birthday. Best halibut I have eaten outside of Alaska. Service was perfect."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "The noise level at this place was through the roof! It was great food, and service, but the noise level took away from the fun we had. We had to scream to each other to speak."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Asked for roof top seating in reservation. When we got there they told us they don't take reservations up there. Wish someone would have read the resv and called us to let us know. We may have went somewhere else where we could sit outside because it was a nice night. Instead we were seated by the kitchen. Not what we expected. But food was good and out waitress was very nice."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "My husband and I celebrated our 11th Anniversary here. This was our first time at Stella's Fish Cafe. Service was great and the food was amazing. It was a great night to eat on the roof top. We will definitely be coming back do sometime!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "I was putting on a bridal shower for a co-worker and 12 women showed up, from the start stella's staff greeted us at the door and already had seating prepared for us outside. Everything from the beverages to the food came in a timely manor and everyone enjoyed themselves including the bride to be."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Stella's was a great spot for a Birthday dinner. We loved our server, Nick. He made our experience incredible!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "I was a beautiful summer night. A breeze was blowing. Everyone was in a good mood. How could you not be with food like this?!? It was wonderful including our valet, Luke. The only problem was a longer wait for a table on the rooftop deck. Other than that, it was perfect."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "We actually never made it to the restaurant. Even with having reservation they told us that they can't let us to sit at the patio because it is so popular and we have to stand in line for at least an hour. Redicuilous with reservation !!!! I had even put a note on my reservation request asking for a good view seat. They could and actually should have got back to me then and let me know that we can't reserve a seat. A restaurant that everybody is going there just for the patio and not for the mediocre food in summer and is also part of open table for reservation Is not ok to cheat on reservation on a Saturday night. So don't reserve a spit on open table for this restaurant . It is absolutely useless !"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We had the lobster, halibut, bisque, calamari, crab cake and sea bass, which were all great. However, the Brussels sprouts weren't cleaned/prepped properly and the beets in the salad were totally unseasoned. They tasted boiled and bland. Either roast them with simple seasonings or they need something else. Best calamari!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "There was a long wait for outdoor seating (no surprise), but it was a beautiful night, so we opted to wait. Our server (Ben) was great and very attentive considering how busy they were. I had the swordfish chef special, and it was delicious. My husband had the sea bass special, and his fish was slightly undercooked (he said it was a bit gelatinous). We've been here previously, and never had that problem, so it possibly could have been due to how busy they were. We didn't complain, as he had gotten enough food between the ends of the fish and what I couldn't eat of mine."

  • "We were a group of 10 At The Beginning OuR Server Was Fairly Attentive, But After OuR Food Came Out She Disappeared. Although We Saw Her Busing And Setting OtherTables, She Walking Though The Dining Room Without Even Looking OUr Way. We Had To Track Her Down For To go Containers, To Order Coffee And DessertS. She Didn't Check For Additional Drink Orders Throughout The Meal. When The Check Was Presented a Gratuity Was Added For The Large Party. That Didn't Surprise Me, What Was A Surprise Was That It Was 20% WhenTheServiceWarranted 15% At The Most. I Am From LA And Even In Most Fine Dining RestaurantS, Which This WaS Not, They Do Not Presume To Add 20%."

  • "I'm a pretty laid back customer & have never sent a food item back. I got really close this time but lost my appetite & just wanted to get out of there.We ordered an appetizer of calamari which was ok, but a small portion. To start, when my husband's food came out, it was the wrong dish so he had to sit there & wait until his food was ready. I was excited for my lobster, what I thought should be one of the best things on the menu, but was incredibly disappointed. I started opening the tail shell & this disgusting green goop comes poring out, seemed undercooked, & smelled super fishy. I guess they leave the "insides" but I've never had it prepared this way. So gross, couldn't finish or eat anything else. Bathrooms were a complete disaster."

  • "This was our first time at Stella's. The staff was more than accommodating. There was seating on the roof, so we went up there. It started to rain, so our waiter pulled a table under the bar area for us to sit. I said to my boyfriend later that I felt like someone had called ahead to tell them we were coming and to be extra nice to us and he was thinking the same thing. Granted we were there for lunch and not the dinner rush, but we received excellent service and the food was good too."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "This was my second time at Stella's and I was disappointed that our reservations did not hold a spot on the patio therefore it should be noted somewhere obvious when making reservations online. Otherwise, the food was so good. I don't think you can go wrong with anything at Stella's. The mixed drinks were also just perfect... Not too strong or watered down."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Our party of four had an excellent lunch on the rooftop. Seafood, as usual was fresh and very tasty. Suggestion-get there early for good seating as the rooftop is very popular and fills up quickly. My tablemate loved her fish and chips, salad with walleye is also excellent. Fish tacos were good, but she noted nothing spectacular. We will return!"
