Didn’t have many of the items on the menu and wasn’t informed until we sat down for dinner reservation that they were out of all pizzas, bread appetizers, two pasta dishes, meatballs and eggplant. Our server was attentive and apologetic when it came to the lack of menu. Stella should be more forth coming to patrons and what is to offer on their current menu. The appetizers were very spaced out, over 20 minutes between three of them. Our entrees were fair at best and the Branzino was over cooked. Wasn’t the experience my family has known it to be and hope it turns around.

Stella is our tradition when visiting Santaland. Having not been to Stella in two years there were some changes but it’s still a special place to have a meal. Menu options for everyone. The staff are friendly and there are fewer of them so don’t be in a rush. We didn’t mind we enjoyed lingering at all the view of the city is wonderful.

Food was average at best and portions were small. I ordered the shrimp risotto and the shrimp was way over cooked like rubber. My girlfriend and her daughter were basically done by the time my new food came out and no offer for something comped. It was also extremely hot in there. We wouldn’t go back.

Nice restaurants near Madison Square Garden are few but I definitely recommend Stella 34 Trattoria. It’s inside Macys and stretches the entire width of the sixth floor on the Broadway side. They have a good menu with a full bar, quiet atmosphere and nice view. We spilt the charcuterie plate, eggplant parm and garlic bread. The food was surprisingly very good and the location of course is perfect being a few minutes walk from MSG. The prices are reasonable and it’s in a very pleasant, quiet setting. The restaurant is on open table if you need to make a reservation at a nice restaurant steps from the Garden.

Our server was very attentive, despite the busy dining room.
The fish was perfect and we loved the balanced taste of the burratta, pumpkin, petti squash appetizer.

Our waiter was nice but the food wasn’t great. We chose this restaurant for its proximity to Madison Square Garden. Lasagna wasn’t available, 2 other menu items weren’t available after 4:00 pm . Pizza was blah, rotisserie chicken was dry and the Caesar was ok. Wouldn’t choose this place for a return trip.

Nice really quiet place having in mind the address.
Couldn’t get the table I wanted for my party but they gave me the next decent thing.
Apparently old customers spot which is good.
When making a reservation tell them which exact table # you want so you get it. Who would have known?

I love this neighborhood restaurant. You might find it interesting that such a fabulous restaurant is in Macy's. Well.. it is! The food is consistently wonderful, pastas are fabulous.. interesting wine list.. and fabulous service. Our server, Steven, could not have been more gracious and helpful... one of the best! And to top it off..a fabulous view of the Empire State Building!
Thank you to the chef and Steven for a great evening.

Excellent brick oven pizza, tap beer was nice and cold, nice cheerful atmosphere. Only minor pet peeve order salad starter to be shared and they don’t split it or give extra large fork or spoon to help you split it. But overall really liked it and would go again.

The bigoli was bland and tasteless, with a minimum pieces of mushrooms and a very small drop (not even a dallop) of stracciatella. The risotto was delivered to the table room temperature.

I have been to Stella34 many times and the food is great. The service is another story. They give you these small water glasses that don’t hold much. If you have been shopping for a while in Macy’s you are going to be thirsty. Getting a water refill is difficult. I know it’s true because I kept looking around and most water glasses were empty. I ordered a Bellini as my main drink which I ended up pounding down like fruit juice. It took 31 minutes for the server to ask me my food order. That wouldn’t have been an issue except I was dining alone. You would have thought me sitting there with an empty water glass and an empty Bellini glass would have given the server a hint. I had to ask for a water refill every time my glass was empty. Even when he brought the check for the people next to me, he didn’t think to bring the water pitcher for all the empty glasses around me. My food came out quickly once I ordered. The food is amazing. After 2 hours and a lot of sitting I asked for my check. 10 more minutes passed so I finally flagged someone down that looked important. She apologized and took care of me right away including a small discount. I do recommend this restaurant just be prepared to bring your own bottled water and slow service.
