Food wasn't bad; salad was excellent, but the meat dishes a bit underspiced (though well-
cooked). A bit too pricey for what you get
We had a great time eating at Stellina but it was warm in there! It was a warm day for Pt Reyes Station and I understand they don't have AC there b/c they're so close to the coast but a ceiling fan woud be nice for those days that are warm. We really didn't want to linger too long after lunch, That being said, we all liked our meals, and will definitely go back. Our waitress, who's name I didn't get but she's Polish, was delightful. Really cheery w/a great smile! Thanks!
When you're in Pt Reyes and overwhelmed by the beauty around you and the lovely ride to get there, Osteria Stellina has just the sort of menu you'd want - fresh ingredient driven menu with something for everyone. It doesn't try to impress you with fancy surroundings - plain surroundings and simply prepared fresh food. It's wonderful.
The food wasn't prepared well at all. I ordered the swordfish entree, since they were out of almost everything else on the menu. My niece ordered the flank steak, and my bestie ordered a pizza.
The steak was prepared medium rare even though we asked for medium temperature. Good thing my niece didn't care, but the steak was not cooked to the temperature we desired.
The pizza was soggy in the middle, it could have been the truffle oil, but it didn't seem cooked all the way.
My swordfish, was grilled on the outside, rare on the inside. Rare enough that I couldn't get my fork through the middle. The greens were so over salted, I couldn't eat them even though I was starving. The server tried to argue with me stating that its a tougher fish and is pink in the middle rather look and see if the fish was indeed rare. The sword fish was rare and chilled in the middle, not pink. She should have taken a bite if she was brave enough.
I've been to this restaurant before and didn't have this experience. The service was subpar for the prices we paid.
The host was great, very welcoming and accommodating. The server was not really concerned for us or if we enjoyed the food.
We have a vacation home across the bay, but we probably won't be back to that restaurant.
We had a wonderful lunch here. The staff was friendly and the ambiance was just right for Pt Reyes Station. We ordered pizza and a pasta. Both were wonderful. We had young kids with us (ages 2 and 6) -- the staff was very friendly with them, and there was a kid-friendly menu. Great place!
We went on Saturday evening of a 3 day weekend. They were a little overwhelmed, so I give them a bit of a pass for that. They really did do their best to keep up.
I had the braised lamb, Lynette had the chicken. They were both served on a bed of Pollenta and a side of greens. It was the exact same dish with a different protien! I believe this was done to accommodate the very busy evening. The cherry cobbler was the highlight.
The food was tasty, but could have been much more personalized.
They advertise that they are a Michelin star recommended restraunt. I have no idea what that means, but this was not Michelin star quality.
They are a locally sourced food, which I think is great, but I don't really need to know that you used Strauss farms cream to make your mashed potatoes.
I would go again on a quieter weekend to afford them an opportunity for a better experience
Stopped here on day trip to Pt. Reyes based on recommendation from friend. Food was excellent, especially chicken salad and mushroom pizza. A bit pricey for lunch.
Loved our dinner. We have been here many times and will keep coming back. Everything was delicious and very fresh. Service was very friendly, efficient, and not rushed.
Amazing food, amazing service. We've returned countless times. Worth the drive
Wonderful meal. We had to wait a bit even though we had a reservation, but it was for the best because they gave us a really great seat.
The meal was tasty and elegant and they accommodated our group of 8 beautifully. We had oysters, 8 entrees, two bottles of wine, desserts, and some other drinks for around $580, so very worthwhile
