I love CS for its French atmosphere and wonderful food. However you now get a gratuity added to your bill for the kitchen staff. Not your choice. I don’t like that.
this is an overpriced restaurant in which the personelle consists clearly just of freelancing self proclaimed artists with no plan how to manage a venue and no knowledge on ingredients, preparation methods, and hospitality. go if you want to be an LA doodle who wants to show off your money and your non existent sophistication
This was our third or fourth time back at Cafe Stella in the past few months. It's a gem of a restaurant. Reminds me of some of my favorite places in France. I can't recommend it highly enough!
Love the place. This is my 4th time at this place and it's my first time that I have been made to wait for my party to be sat. It would have been fine if I didn't see that another person was seated and served a drink while waiting for his party to arrive. This whole waiting for the entire party to arrive before being sat takes away a bit from the experience.
Won’t be back
Very romantic with great food and cocktails. We love going there for special occasions.
The food was delicious. The valet parking was expensive-$15, but very convenient. At times, the music was so loud I could not hear my dinner guests’ conversation.
Excellent service. Great wines and food!
The food was okay but overpriced. If the food was better it would make sense how small the portions were.
Really gone down hill. Used to be great. Now, not so much. It’s too bad really. Sent my mussels back - they weren’t cooked. Bartenders are nice.
One of our favorite date night restaurants. Always delicious.
One of the first upscale restaurants in Silverlake prior to the unfortunate gentrification of the neighborhood, the restaurant is still there and still great. Always enjoy our meal, great wine list and professional, friendly service.
I love Cafe Stella. We go every year for my birthday. So it’s especially disappointing that the quality has gone down. The staff are fantastic but the food isn’t up to par. Which is a huge bummer because Cafe Stella is one of my favorite restaurants in LA. Dunno what happened but maybe it’s a one off and we’ll try it again.
Cafe Stella is one of my favorite haunts in silver lake. The restaurant makes you feel love you’ve truly been transported to another place. The staff is lovely, the food is great, and the ambience is always upbeat.
Romantic, hidden gem! The food was spectacular, as was the service. Ambience was beautiful, reminding me of a little french restaurant I used to visit when I lived in NYC. I plan to come back often, and would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys good food in a lovely atmosphere. Make reservations!
Great food as always.
And the waiter was great.
It's a little pricey, but well worth it for special nights
Always a winner, Cafe Stella is the perfect place for friends or a date. The quality of drinks and food is at the top and the servers make you feel valued. I am so happy that this restaurant continues to be a favorite and a Los Angeles stand-out.
Cafe Stella never fails to please. The food is reliably good, very satisfying every time. My teen kids love it and have developed a fine appreciation for perfectly prepared steak frites and chocolate soufflé. I like to go with family. I also like to go with friends for a cocktail. The service team is friendly and knowledgeable.
Love the patio, lighting is beautiful!!!!
Overpriced mediocre food. Service was very slow, maybe they want it to feel like the slow pace of France, but it wasn't working for us. The best part was the butter that came with the bread. Just ask for more bread and butter
Impeccable service and great food!! Love the homey feel of the restaurant and wait staff is second to none!!!
My favorite place for Escargots and cocktails. Great service and vibe.
Super expensive. Huge attitude from waiter. Spent 425.00 on dinner for 4 and the service was terribly off putting
perfect except for couple with babies screaming at next table- mood killer - people with babies turn a restaurant into a kindergarten and have no respect for other adults who dont want to eat in a kindergarten and are on a date - not the restaurants fault but a nightmare
Friendly service ... great French food (the real deal) ... chi chi hipster vibe of Sunset Junction
Lovely casual neighborhood French bistro! Always my back up!
Nice atmosphere, but overpriced, 21% tip included for a group of 5...not necessary :(
Ambience/decor - experience was very authentic.
It was a busy night, but service was very good, from beginning to end. I also enjoyed the bars, and service was great and although packed, people made room, were cool and enjoyed themselves.
I wouldn’t miss it, great food, a little pricey but excellent; decor is awesome, very period and inviting- very euro...I found anyone I interacted with to be enjoying their job and helpful and really cool.
Everyone was so sweet and we did not have to hurry !
We loved it all , food was delicious!
Always one of my favorite places to go. The setting, staff and food are all excellent.
We love Cafe Stella as a great place to relax and enjoy a nice evening meal! The patio is a very comfortable, pleasant place to sit. The service is always very friendly and personable. We love to be able to set our own slow pace for dining so we greatly appreciate wait staff that tune into that fact! The quality of the food and tasty preparations are consistently excellent. An all around great dining experience.
Wonderful, relaxing dinner with friends. The Negroni Rouge was the best twist on a Negroni I’ve ever had. The food and service were excellent. Paul, our server, recommended the perfect red wine to compliment our meals.
I love Cafe Stella for its atmosphere and terrific food. I call it French Country cooking because there are no sauces. I bring everyone there.
Overall, service was poor and the food wasn’t cooked properly. There are much better options for the price.
Amazing service from our server I only wish I could remember her name. She’s French and she looked after us amazingly well.
Food and service were excellent. However, they have raised prices and instituted a kitchen charge. Probably won't be back for a while.
Unfortunately the service was terrible. Rude and dismissive. Given the price, you would expect a bit better arrive. Food is consistent and good.
Excellent & dependable as always!
took a while for the drinks to get the waiter to take drink order and longer to get them, but once it got going, drinks kept pouring and food was great
