Diner Reviews
  • "We have had many excellent dining experiences at Stella's Restaurant. The food is always delicious, the ambiance comfortable, and the service friendly and efficient."

  • "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!"

  • "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!"

  • "We go to Stella's every couple of months and they never disappoint. The food is superb and the portions are very generous. "

  • "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. "

  • "Delicious...no room for improvement in my halibut special or my husbands crab cakes!"

  • "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!!!""

  • "We had reservations for 10 people for lunch on 4/23... At the last minute, our party increased to 11 and the 11th person was late. The staff was very accommodating and flexible and we had a fabulous meal and a good time."
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "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!!"
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "Well worth having to book weeks in advance for a Saturday evening table. Staff and owner superb - matched by the food. Prices very reasonable for such good preparations and wide ranging choices.. We'll go again."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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."
