Diner Reviews
  • "This has to be my favorite place to dine in Richmond, VA. It is a small, neighborhood restaurant that serves wonderful Greek food and offers an excellent array of wines. Customer service could not be better. The food is served looking like a page from Bon Appetite!"

  • "You won't find better prepared Greek style dining but the noise level in the restsurant is so high its virtually impossible to enjoy it. How to spoil an evening!!"

  • "This is the perfect place to go on a date night or for lunch! Never disappoints. This is my go to place for good food and great service! The community table gives you the chance to get to know other people while eating great food. Over all a great place to eat!"

  • "My boyfriend and I were celebrating being reunited after weeks of travel apart and Stella's was perfect! The atmosphere is warm and romantic, and yet homey and casual. The service was excellent; we never needed to ask for anything. Our server knew what we wanted before we did. It was nice to be able to focus on each other and not the logistics of dinner. This was one of my few experiences in Richmond that reminded me of the level of service and food quality of Charleston, SC. Thank you Stella's!"

  • "I constantly crave this amazing food and drive over an hour to eat here. It's as good as my in-laws cooking and as good as what I've had in Greece."

  • "Excellent food, excellent service. We were just a table of two and the seating was extremely tight, we could hear the exact conversations of the tables on either side of us."

  • "Was yummy. Pork under cooked and they had to take it back. They said sorry but of course it dragged out our dinner and then our food was not at the same time. They did nothing for us to make the bad better. Food was good!"

  • "My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner. It was our first time in the new location - a perfect place and meal for his birthday. We really enjoyed the menu (sometimes difficult because I'm vegan) and found the service and the wine delightful. We will definitely go back for another special date night or birthday meal."

  • "Strella's is a great place to eat. Staff was very accomodating and and helpful, going above and beyon. Seating was great and the food excellent. We had family from out of town and everyone was very impressed and pleased with the menu selections and the food they ordered. We will be back!"

  • "Food was great always! Service was really slow and it was hard to find room in the table for every thing surrounded by our dirty dishes and glasses. However it was completely enjoyable since we had great company and were in no rush. Just a fyi."

  • "Always outstanding but VERY noisy! Food superb as was service. Very affordable too. But the level of noise is tough for anyone over 40!"

  • "We have been to Stella's several times for lunch and enjoyed it. This was our first dinner at the restaurant, and it exceeded our expectations in terms of food and ambience. Service is consistently excellent. It is noisy but very delicious and fun."

  • "Stella's has a great reputation and a huge following of dedicated customers. I had not visited the new location since the re opening in 2011. The appetizers (teropita and the 3 dip sampler) were GOOD. Not great. Our entrees (#5 pasta with meat sauce and pastichio) were good and even better the next day as leftovers. Our server did a good job but was nothing special. Stella's is loud and very crowded as it is a neighborhood favorite. If you don't have a reservation, you will wait 30-45 minutes. If you would rather have a quieter more intimate environment with comparable (or better) food, I would go to Greek Islands on Broad. If you like a vibrant busy restaurant with good food, Stella's is great."

  • "The restaurant had great food. We shared several meze dishes and it was enough for a meal. The restaurant was very full and quite loud though. Will definitely go back."

  • "Stella's is small & most tables are set up for 2. The service is top notch, the menu is unique & hard to pick one item. We ordered $10 Greek salad which was spot on, w/ the salad dressing balance was perfect,good for 3 or 4 people! We ordered the shrimp appitizer in a tomato sauce, the sauce was yummy w/the shrimp. We sharred the meatball appitizer, but would not order again, a little dry. All the items we shared were v good, along w/ a greek red table wine! The bread is GOOD!! For dessert,ice cream was so good,the chocloate mouse pie, yummy. The building/ceiling tiles make it very loud to talk if you had a group, so 2-5 folks is best for Stella's noise issue. Good BAR scence, many singles & friends of all ages, Great will go again!"

  • "Stella's has both traditional Greek dishes and some new cuisine. The moussaka was incredible - perhaps the best I've ever tasted. The service was great - knowledgable, attentive and friendly."

  • "Great food and gorgeous, thoughtful design. The helopitas are delicious yet unavailable in other Richmond Greek restaurants."

  • "Can't believe this was our first time. We've already been back again and know we will go back often. The food is phenomenal, the service is impeccable. Best filet I have EVER had. And killer baklava. Everything was outstanding! What a gem!"

  • "I've never really been served authentic Greek food before, so was not sure what to expect. At the suggestion of the server, I chose an entree that was a sampler of their foods... Don't ask what it was called- it had a lot of t's and z's in the name :) We enjoyed the excellent food and service. Con- I requested a 'quiet table' in my OpenTable reservation, and booked an early 5 pm seating. Seating is tight, side-by-side. We were the first couple seated. Within 10 minutes, the hostess proceeded to seat a boisterous couple next to us, when she had an apparent choice of 15 other tables in the room. Lesson- don't go expecting 'quiet, romantic, or private.' Expect that if you need the salt, you can ask someone at the table 18" away. :("

  • "A quick google search on Stella's and you'll find nothing but 4 and 5 star reviews - because they earned it! The food and ambience are fantastic. Every dish I've had has been nothing short of amazing. Whether I've been here for a quiet dinner with 1 person or a group of 6, I've enjoyed it each and every time."

  • "I took my son to Stella's to celebrate, and we had an amazing dinner. The food is always authentically Greek and fabulous. The wait staff is attentive without being intrusive, and the atmosphere and decor are casually upscale. The crowd is always friendly - everyone is happy to be there. Stella's always delivers!"

  • "Calamari app with Shrimp Santoriini entree split between two lovers. Two glasses of House Chardonnay. Baklava for dessert. No one seems to be able to serve squid that is not rubbery, so Stella's is at the benchmark here. Our waiter was outstanding in all categories. The ambiance is clean, tidy, neat, but not old world or ethnic. The seating is a bit close, but if you come for tasty Greek food you've chosen well."

  • "You know when you take that first bite of something and you think to yourself "Wow, that's delicious!"? Well, it really says something about a meal when you are more than halfway finished with your meal you still feel that way about every bite. Kudos to the chef!"

  • "Excellent food and service. It was almost like being in Athens again. Make a reservation because it is always busy, for good reason!"
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "Stella's is one of my top 3 favorite restaurants in Richmond, and yet again they delivered wonderful ambiance, excellent service and amazingly delicious food. Only hang up is you pretty much need reservations if you are hitting at the prime dinner hours, but noticed around 8pm a few tables cleared out and stayed open for a little while at least."

  • "The Greek selection at Stella's is AMAZING. Everything we had was delicious. Great wine selection. Make sure to make a reservation several days in advanced though because tables fill up there very quickly. Got stuck w/ a really early dinner reservation."

  • "Stella's never disappoints! The food is always excellent, as is the service. I've been there when it was totally packed with people lined up to dine, and I could still hold a conversation with those at my table. It just has to be Richmond's best restaurant!"

  • "Everytime I visit Stella's, I almost book a plane ticket to Santorini. Talk about creating the best of the Med food! All delish, all authentic. The Greek wine is also absolutely to die for, and the appetizers (mezas, I believe) are my favorite part of the whole place. Don't skip loukoumates for dessert either. The best Greek dessert that isn't baklava. "
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "Wonderfully creative menu! We tried the Mushroom-crab soup, spanakopita (not greasy!), tomato fritters, salmon with spanakorizo, and the rockfish special. Both fish were cooked perfectly...moist, we'll seasoned. Spanakorizo (rice, spinach, feta) was delicious with the salmon. My fav was the tomato fritter. Least fav, the spanakopita - nothing negative, just what I expected. If you like champagne (prosecco), the Saint Sophia cocktail is a winner! I almost forgot the homemade gelato...to die for!"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "The best Greek food we've ever had. Would eat here every night if I could! Eclectic atmosphere, great and knowledgeable service, superb food and just an all round great spot. Don't miss the shrimp and feta casserole...outstanding! Obviously really popular as it was full even on a Monday night. If you think you don't care for Greek food, try Stella's...you'll definitely change your mind. "

  • "My husband and I like to take friends to popular eating places. We had been to Stella's about 20 years ago for work-related activities, and decided to try it again Friday night. The food was wonderful and we were pleasantly surprised at how large the serving sizes were. We were able to choose several appetizers and there was plenty to share. We did the same with dessert. The atmosphere was a little loud for visiting but we enjoyed our time immensely just the same."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Food was absolutely delicious. We had the filet topped with crabmeat, the Stella's calamari, and the oyster special of the day. Everything was delicious, but I preferred the seafood over the steak. The wine list was limited to a small selection of greek wines. The cocktail list was great. I loved the interior of the restaurant; however, it is kind of loud which is the only reason I didn't mark it as romantic. I do like that it was located in a neighborhood where I could find parking nearby. I will definitely go back. This is also one of those places you have to have a reservation. "

  • "We went on a Wednesday to celebrate my wife's birthday. We've eaten there before and wanted to return. The staff is very attentive, the food is like dining with grandma again, the oysters were sooo tender, the Greek red wine was excellent and the entrees were super. As my wife said, "We have to dine there more often!!!""
