"Stella 34 is located within Macy's but in its own separate area. There are lovely views of Herald Square and the ambiance is well lit and sophisticated. Conversation is very possible as the noise level is moderate and tables are fairly well spaced.The menu is somewhat limited: some small plates, pastas and a few fish and chicken dishes. We had a mushroom pasta and split the branzino. Everything was very well prepared. They specialize in gelato and it was delicious. The white wines by the glass were only fair but moderately priced. Service was pleasant but somewhat erratic. There was a delay between our seating and the arrival of the waitress. You are certainly not rushed.
I would recommend Stella for a very good meal in a dining wasteland."See more
"This was one of the best dining experiences I have had in NYC in many years. The staff was friendly but not overbearing. We were given just enough time to relax, enjoy our wine and appetizers before ordering our main course. The short ribs with sweet potato hash and baby spinach was the most delicious combination. This was followed by fabulous desserts, including homemade donuts with ice cream. Everything was made to perfection!"See more
