Diner Reviews
  • "Stella's is a bright spot in a town with lots of great restaurants. The food is superb and service excellent. The selections are delicious and sometimes sublime. Because Stella's is so popular, one must make reservations a week or two in advance. If you are looking for quiet atmosphere, look elsewhere. But if you want Mediterranean food that is scrumptious and mouth-watering, dine at Stella's."

  • "The food is always fabulous - unique and delicious. The servers are efficient, friendly and very personable. My friend who dined with me comes through Richmond every couple of months and always requests we come to Stella's. And I always agree!!"

  • "I was finally able to get into this restaurant. You must wait a long time although , if you pop in at 8:00 during the week, you can find a table. The calamari was the best I have had. Oysters and Octopus were excellent. Steak was too charred, and the shank had a cinnamon taste to it. Moussaka was way too rich. Halibut was good but the sauce had absolutely no flavor. Presentation was nice. Don't understand why this place is always so busy other than it is small and in the neighborhood."

  • "My roommate and I had heard great things about Stella's. Our reservation was for 9 p.m., and when we arrived, the place was still busy. It's easy to see why - whether you eat mezze style or get entrees (we kind of did both), there are great options at reasonable prices. The spanokopita appetizer was tasty and a big portion - 4 good-sized pieces. The tria of dips was fantastic and we kept returning to it as we ate our entrees. She got the pork souvlaki and I got the lamb shank - both were large portions, and our leftovers reheated well the next day! Our server was also very nice and helpful, and mindful of clearing the table to make room for more plates. Highly recommend if you, like me, have been struggling to find good Greek food in RVA!"

  • "This place is my boyfriend and I's new favorite restaurant. We both agreed we will be back often. The food was incredible and the price fair when you consider the portions. We ordered several of the mez plates and an entree to share because we love eating tapas style sharing lots of different plates. We split a carafe and enjoyed tons of food and conversation, just as you should in a Greek restaurant. We can't wait to go back!"

  • "The reputation of Stella's is outstanding food and they deliver. However, it appears they overbook because of their popularity. You can be left standing waiting for a table even with a reservation. If you don't mind large crowds and noise, and are a patient person you will love the food. I also have heard from others who were asked to settle up and leave their table so they could turn it over for the next diner. NOT relaxing."

  • "Stella's is definitely a hidden gem that I recently tried with friends who, like me gave it rave reviews. Four of my friends were visiting from different countries in Europe, and were pleasantly surprised at the offerings, which were light and fresh, compared to what they consider "typical American food." They couldn't say enough about how much they enjoyed the restaurant. We were there for Sunday brunch, and we started with the hummus appetizer, which was airy and smooth and tasty. I had the Loukaniko Sausage Skillet which was incredible - the flavors were spectacular and well-paired. There were so many other things on the menu that I would have loved to try, so we'll just have to plan to come back!"

  • "We had a group of 6 celebrating a birthday. Our server gave us the appetizer specials and we ordered them all. Its hard to get in because it is so popular. I booked this a month in advance. Love it!"

  • "Service was pretty bad considering our waiter had only 4 tables. Chose the special, Lamb shoulder steak and it came to the table raw, so we had to return it. When the waiter brought it back 15 minutes later we dug in and were able to find 3 bites of edible steak. Disappointed. Last time in was very different in a good way. Everyone has a bad nite."

  • "I am never disappointed when dining at Stella's. From the excellent and friendly staff to the delicious food, Stella's consistently receives an outstanding rating! Stella's is very popular (for the reasons indicated previously), so a reservation is strongly recommended. Once seated, don't be afraid to order several different things to share with your friends/family dining with you. That's the best way to sample all of the incredible dishes. If you have questions about any of the menu items, the knowledgeable staff will be more than happy to fill you in. The kitchen staff is also pretty prompt, so don't expect a long wait time between ordering and receiving your meal. Enjoy!"

  • "I really enjoyed the grilled octopus! Good rockfish special, but at $27, a little pricey. Neat wine list, and the waitress was great at interpreting Greek wines. The tables are a bit too close together, making it tough to have a romantic meal, due to the high volume of conversation. You can easily see what the tables next to you are having. Overall a good experience, would go back. The baked spaghetti great, and the Greek salad great, enough for 3-4 people each, so share a dish."

  • "The best decorated and most creative and delicious Greek cuisine. Downside: too popular on Saturday evening to be quiet, romantic and timely."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Greek home cooking at it's best; portion sizes provide enough for lunch the next day and it is all delicious. We don't go as often as we would like because a table is hard to come by; it's a popular spot and if you don't get a reservation there is a long wait. The only down side is the tables are a little too close together for my taste and it gets noisy. The appetizers and specials are so good! Wait staff was friendly and very knowledgeable."

  • "We drive a good distance into the city to eat at Stella's. It is one of our favorites. However...I really hate it when the hostess tells me there is a meter running on my table and another reservation is expecting to take over my table at a specific time. How am I to answer when they ask, "there is a ___ time reservation on your table. Is that alright with you?" It really takes the whole dining experience to another level. "Shovel and run""
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Me neither. So if you're going out make it count. Stella's is ideal for after work get together, special dinner, or just date night with really great food. We basically split a six course meal, my daughter and I, and had lots left over. Huge portions, fresh ingredients, expertly prepared and beautifully served. The entire experience was great."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "Stella's has the best Greek food in Richmond. To take nothing away from the excellent food, it is difficult to make a reservation through Open Table because Stella's keeps most of the tables for itself for those who walk in or call direct for reservations."

  • "This was our first time at Stella's for dinner, and it certainly did not disappoint. We ordered several appetizers, shared a salad (huge!) and enjoyed different entrees. Their tabouli and hummus is life-changing, the lamb was excellent, as was the moussaka (our other entree was a delicious halbut special). Will definitely be returning!"

  • "This special dinner met my high expectations formed by several previous visits. This was my husband's first visit and he is generally a bit critical. However, he loved everything Stella's, and is looking forward to trying other items on the menu next time we dine here. My favorite menu entree is the lamb shank, which is so flavorful and literally falls off the bone. Everything was delisious and service was exceptional. Stella's is favorite place for a special meal."

  • "My wife and I went to Stella's for Valentines Day and had a wonderful time. The food was fantastic, as usual, and the server was friendly, helpful and very attentive. We love going there, especially on chilly evenings because of the cozy and intimate feeling that they provide. We have been to many of the places in Richmond and Stella's is still one of our favorites for a romantic spot to get some amazing food."

  • "Great food and service, very impressed. Once happy with our seating, right next to the door, it was cold and very loud people that kept knocking our table, close quarters and we didn't like that, once the routy group left, we were able to enjoy our food. Will definitely go back and seat at another location."

  • "I have been to Stella's many times (dinner and lunch). Everything is VERY reasonably priced and the portions are generous. In my opinion, Stella's has the best Greek food in town. If you love Greek food, do yourself a favor and give it a try. The staff is very friendly and provides very good service. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "First visit will NOT be our last! Dinner was divine - from app of calamari to shared dessert of baklava with salted caramel gelato. I would give every item a 10. Pastas and seafood all were equally superb; although, Pasta No. 5 could use a fancier name. Our server was excellent as well, offering good recommendations and conversation. Only issue - it was a bit cold at our table due to folks not keeping curtain closed near entry door. It did not detract from our delicious meal, however, and I would not complain if I had to sit outside nerxt time."

  • "Stella's was awesome...everything was great. The food was fantastic, the service was impeccable. They were extremely busy, but there was no backlash from it. This is a great neighborhood restaurant, we will be going back again. I cannot stress how great it was, it is loud in there."

  • "Restaurant is too crowded and extremely loud. No room for the waiting customers. They take reservations, but your whole party has to be there to be seated and you have to be there at least 10 minutes prior to your reservation or you have lost your table. So many great restaurants in Richmond, try them first."
