Diner Reviews
  • "We celebrated our anniversary at Stella's on Saturday for a lunch visit. It was not overly busy. Noah was our server and he was very pleasant. The drinks were awesome and the food was really good too. Wife had the lobster roll and I had the stuffed salmon. We will definitely come back for a visit. We have heard great reviews about the patio."

    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "We went to Stella's with the lunch groupon. What a great deal - top notch seafood at a reasonable price. The stuffed salmon is out of this world as are the scallops. Fresh - never frozen - makes a huge difference when it comes to eating seafood. It costs a little more, but is worth it. Tasty margaritas too! We go around 11 on the weekends - not too busy yet and guaranteed great service."

  • "we always go on sunday for the lobster. it was good as always and a great deal. it was very busy this sunday and loud but if you are not interested in a serious conversation it is fine."

  • "Fresh oysters! Yum! Sashimi plate good (maybe not excellent, but beautifully presented and very good.) The jalapeño corn bread, served in a cast iron skillet, was delicious. Great, friendly service. (4 stars instead of 5, as could have been more prompt, especially at end, but overall very good.)"

  • "Everything was okay at best. The jumbolia was $25 a more reasonable price would be closer to $15."

  • "If you love seafood this the place to go. The Friday oyster specials, lobster roll and the roof top dining and bar is great!! We live in the north metro and go out of our way to frequent this restaurant."

  • "I have been to Stella's several times and while the food is good, I cannot say it is outstanding. The service is consistently a bit slow. I love the rooftop restaurant, but Stella's is not my first choice."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "This was our third visit to Stella's for a "late lunch" with a 50% off voucher (this time from TravelZoo). The food is consistently delicious. We've had the good fortune of being served by Amy on all three occasions and she is a gem; knowledgeable about the menu, efficient, and always very pleasant."

  • "We had wonderful service Our server guided us to the appropriate choices and what to avoid The food was a bit on the spicy side but very tasty The only draw back was that it was far too noisy with music blaring and many large boisterous parties"

  • "Being Lent, the wife needed fish for Friday night. After some looking around on Yelp and others came across Stellas, good reviews and the menu looked fantastic. Also, the HH specials helped seal the deal. Valet parking out front as limited parking options was a great help and seating was right away. Ordered a mix of cooked and raw seafood for appetizers, it seems that the shrimp buckets, sushi and other raw seafood comes from a different kitchen - which was backed up due to the oyster special (which is a Friday HH special). Otherwise great food. Jambalaya was fantastic and so was the wife's lobster pasta. Our friends enjoyed the parmesan crusted halibut and Italian pasta. Desserts left a little to be desired as not made on site, dry"

    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Our waitress was very nice but she wasn't around much and it was hard to add onto our orders after our initial order. She also recommended a dish to me then brought me the wrong dish but I waited too long so I decided to eat it - do NOT order the spinach dip. Everything was mediocre for the most part - the sushi was good/decent and the oysters and wings at happy hour were fantastic."

  • "We frequent Stella's because it's great food and comfortable not pretentious like other seafood restaurant here in Mpls. First time there on a Tuesday night and everything was perfect Not as noisy as weekends food perfectly done for both of us and the service outstanding . Ask for Noah's section as he is one of the best servers anywhere. A true professional! Go often as you won't be disappointed and don't miss Ahi Tuna medium rare!"
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "My second visit, everything we tried so far was good - a happy find so far from either coast. Had peel and eat shrimp, it was fresh, always easy to tell from that. Have to try a simple piece of fish next time to complete the picture. But so far, yes good place to eat as long as do not mind the noisy, fast paced diner like environment...."

  • "We made our reservation online through Open Table, and when we arrived were told they were about 10 minutes behind on seating reservation. No big deal, we found a spot at the bar right away and started with a beer. The hostess came to seat us 10 minutes after our reservation time (so no problems there, it was a very busy Saturday night). Our server was great, brought our drinks right away, explained the menu, checked in at appropriate times and made sure everything was good at our table. We had the Crab Cakes appetizer, it was excellent and for our meals had the Scallops prepared how we requested and the Salmon from the Chef prepared menu. Both were fantastic, cooked to perfection! Get the Valet parking, totally worth it!!"

  • "My husband and I went to Stella's for the Lobster Bake special that they had ran through Living Social. We have been to Stella's numerous times but this had to have been the absolute best trip. Not only was the lobster bake wonderful and delicious but our service was truly something that Stella's should be proud of. We had a server, Cicero, who I believe was training in with Caleb. Both of these gentlemen were fabulous and went above and beyond to make our experience great. Truly the best service we have had at a restaurant in a long, long time."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We had a great night but it was costly. I ordered the scallop special which was $34. It came with only 3 scallops and a small mixed green salad with poached pears/walnuts/dressing. I have to admit both the salad and the scallops were absolutely delicious but I was still hungry afterwards even though I ordered a side of broccoli too to share with my husband. Our server Noah was great. Friendly and knowledgeable about the menu."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Lobster Bake for Two was excellent. Lot of food for two people. Service was very attentive and friendly. Try it you will like it."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "The foods was excellent, cooked perfectly with service to match. My 2 complaints are: (1) we were a table of 2 and for whatever reason they placed us in the middle of 3 large & loud parties...this made it less enjoyable. (2) we ordered a sushi roll and one bite in, the soup and bread came...directly followed by the salad. We informed the waitress that we wanted the meal to slow down which she accommodated without issue."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Although the fish my group had at this restaurant was tasty, the presentation for the price was lacking. Furthermore, our waitress took about 15-20 minutes to greet us after we sat down and was inattentive during our visit. My salad was served with the wrong dressing and a person in my group received lukewarm food (filet and mashed potatoes). They put the steak on the grill for a few extra minutes and got new mashed potatoes, which were still cold the second time around. Although the manager offered us dessert to make up for the mistake, we were still disappointed on the whole. I have received better service and food at less expensive restaurants."

  • "Had the scallops, Oscar style, and they were fabulous! Service was great as well. Was there with a couple of girlfriends so we took our time figuring out what to order and the server was patient and knew when to stop back. Would highly recommend!"

  • "Took my son and his girlfriend to Stella's for the Lobster Dinner for two and the Crab Special on Thursday. I was a little disappointed in the lobster- I could not eat the claws, the meat was tough and mealy. The rest of the meal was very good. The crab legs were excellent. All in All, we had a very good time and the waiter was the best!"

  • "We stopped in to use a Groupon that I had purchased. I have been to Stella's before and the food is good... but I wouldn't say it is the best I have ever had. I also don't think that it is a very good value... everything is overpriced!! Service wasn't horrible, but definetly subpar. Not in a hurry to get back to Stella's."

  • "The service,staff and food was very good, but it was difficult to try and talk over the loud music. If it were a little quieter I would have enjoyed myself more. It was hard to carry on a conversation."
