    The food was good, different flavors used yet still simple enough and tasty. Was disappointed that happy hour was advertised but there was no special food or drink pricing available, did not quite understand this. Service was a little slow, but it was a Wednesday, late afternoon (4pm) so maybe that is the reason. The draft beer selection was limited to just three, but several can/bottle options available.
    Hotel SorrentoResponded on May 16, 2024
    Hello, Thank you for visiting and taking the time to leave this review! I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed; we don't offer a "Happy Hour", but rather "Aperitivo Hour" that focuses on aperitivo style cocktails in the traditional style I apologize that that wasn't made clear. Unfortunately, OpenTable limits us as to what we can name certain hours so we do our best to inform our guests ourselves. Additionally, we're limited to the space allowed in a 115 year old bar, so we try to enhance our beer program with the bottles and can you mentioned instead of kegs. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the dishes, though, and I hope you'll join us again for our more traditional style Italian inspired menu! Thank you for your patronage and feedback. Sincerely, Lex Maloy Food & Beverage Director

    I wanted to eat at Stella for a long time, don’t live near downtown. The atmosphere outside was very nice and I loved being there until my meal came. My husband and I ordered similarly priced items. He ordered the burger and I chose the vegetarian portobello. His order was huge! Mine, overly small. They didn’t even use a whole portobello for my meal. It tasted fine, nothing special. So disappointing! I did also get the soup and dessert which were good.
    Hotel SorrentoResponded on May 16, 2024
    Hello, Thank you for joining us in the Garden, I'm so pleased to hear you enjoyed the atmosphere! Regarding portion sizes, we're continuing to fine tune our latest seasonal menu, so your feedback is appreciated. I hope you'll return to the garden as summer continues for our weekend brunch; the French Toast is a crowd favorite, and has been a staple through the seasons. (We even have live piano on Sundays to enhance that atmosphere!) Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. Sincerely, Lex Maloy Food & Beverage Director

    The ambiance was great, as usual. The food was good. The only downside was the casual dress of the staff. The last time we were there, the staff were dressed a little more formally. We were in tuxedos before heading to the symphony.

    Best dinner out in a long time. The Muscovy duck and all things on the plate were delicious as was the pork chop. Drinks good and sitting in the bar area next to the cozy fireplace makes for a special dinner out. Service very friendly with a lot of positive energy. Look forward to our next visit.

    The restaurant couldn't find our OpenTable reservation, but they were able to seat us in the Fireside Room and not in the main dining room. The tables were a bit high, but we were next to the fireplace and the atmosphere was nice. We shared the Caesar Salad - it was fine, but I expect more garlic and anchovy flavor and not a thick mayonnaise-like dressing. So, I was a little disappointed. The bread and olives we had with our cocktails were good. We also shared the bucatini pasta and that was good - not spectacular and not served really very hot. The service was friendly.

    We love staying in the Hotel Sorrento, enjoying drinks by the fire and dinner at Stella. I once had the best Bolognese pasta. This time we had the incredible spinach artichoke dip with the potato bread (could've stopped there). The duck was not as melt in your mouth as I would've hoped, but it had a wonderful pomegranite sauce and potatoes au gratin. Everyone is super nice. It feels old world and relaxing.

    We had very attentive staff. The olives and bread along with a glass of wine for him and a martini for me were excellent. Then we got redrew salads thinking they were more a side but they were very large portions. I had Caesar and he had arugula. Nicely prepared. We were so full we couldn’t get dessert.

    For those of us who fondly remember the old Hunt Club, Stella is definitely disappointing. The ambience is not cozy and warm but rather hard and cold. However, the food was very good for the price. My only complaint was that my duck was a little tough. The service was certainly what one has come to expect - Young, informal, not very experienced, but pleasant enough. They are not used to diners bringing in their own wine and fumbled a bit when a cork split. But, again, Stella is not the Hunt Club of the past. Overall, we enjoyed our evening and the meal.

    Came here for a business dinner due to it's convenienc to work. However, the restaurant was so cold the table next to us kept their puffer jackets on. The staff showed annoyance at us when they came to our table and did not know who had what dish. The steak was some of the worst I have had. I would not return.
