I ordered a martini twice. It took an inordinate time for the first martini to arrive. The second martini was fine but I do not think the first martini was made by a bartender. It was around a change of shift time.
Food was good, very unique and nice spot with a great view.
Went to grab a quick dinner. Space is nice and open. Nice view of the Empire State Building. Food and service was good. Pleasantly surprised to find this little gem in Macys.
Stella is a wonderful restaurant. We have been going for the past 7 years and it never disappoints.
Stella 34 seats until 7:15 p.m. but the kitchen closes at 7:30 p.m. and by 8:30 p.m. they are stacking chairs and turning up the lights. We were starving and had come 10 blocks to get there, arrived 10 minutes late and then rushed to order. Branzino was good, but I'm not convinced it was, in fact, branzino. The dish came with no sides - a teaspoon of an unidentifiable puree and 3 miniature root vegetables about the size of a quarter. Was glad we also got a pizza or I would have left hungry. Pizza and filet mignon were good but not amazing. Service was ok, not stellar. With so many places to dine in NYC there is no reason to come back here.
Pizza was not good and too expensive for the quality
It was ok, the service was not the greatest
Highlight: the Pizza making guy was fun to watch. He clearly loved his job. Go pizza guy! The wait staff was a bit short staffed (which seems par for the course these days) but they hustled to try and get everyone’s orders out.
This is a very good and convenient option for shopping at Macys, fairly authentic food and quality ingredients. A good break from the regular tourist spots. Definitely need reservations and remember your vaccination card.
Very understaffed. Overpriced mediocre food
Three of us had lunch on Black Friday. The service and food were great. Nice view, comfortable seats, and we were not rushed.
Estuvo todo muy bien, pero es verdaderamente cao para el tamaño de los platos. Aunque no olvidemos dónde estamos. En NYC en un restaurante con vistas. Aun así, el restaurante del One World tiene mejores vistas y más asequible.
The kitchen was short-staffed (as is the case with many NYC restaurants right now) so the food took a long time to arrive. However, when it did, it was quite good. Josie, our server, was so kind and friendly and took excellent care of our party of six. I've eaten here several times in the past and will definitely return again.
I had a reservation for Thanksgiving and ordered the pre-fixe. I very much enjoyed the appetizer (pumpkin soup) and the desert (pumpkin cheese cake); however, the main course (turkey dish) left a bit to be desired. I did not care for the turkey roll, the stuffing was rather dry and the Brussels sprouts were cut in half, tiny and burnt. In the past I've had the turkey dinner pre-fixe and it was delicious. The veggies were all served in separate bowls, everything was fresh and definitely not burnt. Also, I would usually be leaving with a "doggie bag" as I couldn't finish everything. I would still recommend Stella 34, but will be re-thinking the TG pre-fixe from now on.
Quick evening meal whilst shopping on first day after arriving in NYC from UK.
Good location within Macy’s, not a huge choice on the menu but food was nice and service was good.
Had a window table so good views out onto the street.
Would be happy to come back again.
I love the ambiance and convenience of Stella 34 .
Our waiter was attentive and the service was good. The meatballs and eggplant Parmesan were excellent and good value , however the salad was sparse and small and definitely way overpriced at $18!
The food here is always so amazing! The pasta with Ragu is the best we’ve ever had. The service provided by our great server Samuel was outstanding. Great time.
Horrible service and food selection is lacking. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
A lovely, peaceful setting. Delicious soup and creative salad.
We had a lovely time at Stella 34 Trattoria! Our waitress Josie was terrific and amazing as she was holding down a lot of tables. We know that staffing is an issue everywhere and appreciate the hard work of all your staff and hope that you will be able to add more employees in due time. Cheers!
Overall great experience. The chicken that was added to my wife's salad was noticeably precooked and very dry. Calamari was tasty and the brigoni was delicious, even more so after adding shrimp. Would definitely return for drinks and dessert at the bar for such a cool place.
wonderful sevice, food and convenience while shopping or touring mid-town NYC. do no miss out, in Macys and xmas is now alive there.
Just perfect! Lovely menus with seasonal fall delightful menu. Prices OK. View of Herald Square wonderful. Very attentive service. Even a visit to our table by the chef! What a wonderful gem!
Stella Is always reliably wonderful. As so it was today.
I generally love the food at Trattoria 34 but yesterday the lump of cold chicken on my Cesar salad tasted like something between balsa wood and cardboard. You have to do better
The view are amazing. The service was spot in as was the food.
Great idea of a place but for its cost, and inconvenience of having to go through Macy’s and find the restaurant on the 6th floor was surprising. The pizza is great, the entres were not worth the price, drinks were amazing.
This was our first visit back, since prior to March of 2020, and we were quite disappointed in the overall quality of the food. We ordered the Napoli salad, which was always a favorite, and aside from shrinking in size significantly, it had more kale than anything, and all in large pieces, so it completely altered the taste of the whole salad. We also had a pizza, which came out luke warm, dry, and quite flavorless. It was a definite disappointment.
I was very impressed with the service. Our waiter was attentive and paid attention to every detail regarding our orders. We didn’t feel rushed.
The lighting was perfect and the ambient temperature was comfortable. It was a beautiful experience.
Great food and wonderful service.. so convenient to have a nice restaurant with a fabulous view of the city while taking a break from shopping at Macy’s … service/staff was exceptional
Would have like something on my plate to go along with the eggplant as the other dish for my dining partner who had lasagna. High priced for one item on the plate.
However, the food was delicious.
Pre game before concert
Great place for a quiet business lunch. Beautiful view and room.
Yes true - even tho in MACY’s on Herald Square. Easy access off 35th & Broadway
One of best places Midtown to enjoy quality food, courteous service and, above all, a quiet conversation with business associates!
Good place near Penn station to have a nice lunch. Food is good, cocktails are terrific. The view is amazing. Try to get a table near a window.
Great pasta and attentive waitstaff. It is on the sixth floor of Macy’s on 34th.
Great food and extra friendly service.
Really cozy and quiet place to have a nice dinner.Food is amazing !!!
Sorry to say that it was a poor experience. Food was cold, poor service, drinks took 25 minutes to arrive and the restaurant was only maybe 1/3 full.
I did expect more from a Patina Group restaurant
Need to expand the menu to include more variety and improve quality of food for the price.
Service and food were excellent. Food was pricey considering the portions were small and not served with normal accompanying sides (i.e.: no veggies or carbs with Bass dish, no bread served with pasta meal).
