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).
Brought my daughter there and she really enjoyed it.
Restroom smell like time square subway station ! Overall food was ok
Seeing a show
I recommend Stella 34 for a family gathering. Easy going but attentive staff, tasty and attractive food, good portions , and great location and views.
The restaurant is open and very clean. The wait staff was attentive.
However the calamari rings were very tiny and the breading was not even on most of them. They lacked flavor as well. They put a lot of the whole bodies. So definitely request mostly rings unless you prefer the heads. They provided one tiny sauce. So we had to ask for more.
The main coarse of eggplant parmigiana was burnt on the edges. The chicken on the salad was moist but lacked flavor.
The food was very good, service was great. Stellas was able to accommodate us with additional distancing upon request (the tables were a little too close for comfort) I didn't care for the Peach Bellini, will order a different beverage next time. Overall we were satisfied.
Surprisingly good restaurant in Macy's. Patina Group knows how to manage even a large restaurant, even though this one was maybe half full at lunch. I'd definitely go again.
Need more food choices
And definitely NY cheesecake on menu
I have always enjoyed meals at Stella 34. I hadn't been back since the Pandemic. Met a friend who I hadn't seen in person for almost 2 years. I made a very bad food choice. I ordered the Caesar salad (large) with Shrimp. I should have realized that I could smell the shrimp from diners two tables away! Anyway...it was a terrible choice. It was the worst Caesar salad I ever had. I did not like the lettuce choice (part frisee which wasn't listed in the menu) just a so so dressing and shrimp (4 huge ones) that did have a bit of an odor. My friend's meal (a chicken and salad dish) was great. Service was super. I made a mistake by eating it, should have complained and returned it. But, truthfully I will be back and just order something else!
Love coming to Stellas … it’s my last minute go to for a get together. Thank you for existing!!! Love the seasonal pizzas they’re my favorite but everything is delicious ♥️
Food was good but a little pricey.
It was convenient and the food was okay. The selection precovid was special , now it seems rather bland and not interesting. My ragu pasta was good. However, I would never order it again there. My friend had the Brazini, again it was good but she would not order it again. And I do not know what I would order if I went there again.
So chances are I will not be going back.
Great food and extra friendly service
This is my go to in the 34th Street/Harold Square area for business and nice lunches with friends or family. Stella 34 is on the sixth floor of Macy's - you'll need to take the elevator adjacent to the West 35th Street & Broadway entrance of the store. Beautiful dining area with large windows along the Broadway side of the building. Service and food are always great. I ordered the Eggplant Parmigiana and espresso Affogato to end the meal.
I’ve dined at Stella 34 Trattoria since it first opened in 2013! Stella is a charming restaurant with quality food. My favorite go-tos are the chicken pagnotella sandwich, mushroom pasta (bigoli), and mushroom pizza. However, considering the number of years that Stella’s been open, I would suggest having more options on the menu (especially for the pasta section), as the choices are limited. Otherwise, Stella’s a true casual elegant spot to grab a quick bite or divulge yourself in something fancy while shopping at Macy’s! :)
A great meal before a show or anytime. Food is reasonably priced and always delicious! Good cocktail selection and excellent views. We've eaten here many times and it never disappoints.
Food was delicious! I requested a birthday candle when I made the reservation and they did not forget! Perfect meal.
Unfortunately, the food was not good. I believe they changed chefs. The meatballs were hard and rubbery (likely to much breading - certainly very little meat), and the sauce doe the branzino was very salty.
We loved the food - very sorry it was not good
The service was quite good. We wanted an airy meeting place for lunch where we could talk. They checked our vaccination status and we felt safe. And the food was lovely, fresh and tasty. We had a view of the Empire State Building and it felt special.
Stella 34 Trattoria is my go-to place for ambiance, great service, outstanding food and consistency. Can't wait to return!
This restaurant is serving excellent food with excellent service. I have patronized this best kept secret at Macy's for years. On my last few visits is has been very empty. If you haven't ever been - I strongly encourage you to try it!
Stella offers an excellent menu in a glamorous setting with beautiful big windows overlooking the Square.
In all ways this was a satisfactory midlevel department store dining experience. The RE offerings were limited but delicious and staff were pleasant.
It was good. The service was very great. The pear tart was exceptional.
The food and service is very good.
If you are in the Herald Square area this is a good convenient pick.
Food is excellent.
Overall I enjoyed the the dinner with my friends. I will recommend this restaurant to everyone.
We have been here before. The food and service are great, but a few things are missing.
The no longer serve bread and butter. With a $130 plus 2 course lunch, you surely can fit in a few breadsticks.
I know the restaurant is only a tenant in Macy's, but the bathrooms are for their exclusive use, with no direct access to the store. Our noon seating was just as they opened, yet no seat covers or soap in the bathrooms.
While am sure it's not their staff doing the overnight cleaning, checking the bathrooms before opening should be on the restaurant's pre opening checklist and make them had issues like this corrected by contacting the store's management.
We enjoyed the food on several other occasions and the restaurant doesn’t disappoint. The wait staff is attentive and can suggest items on the menu. Environment is great with good views of the area.
The restaurant was mostly empty, but our main dish was brought to our relatively small table before we finished our appetizers.
The food was good but the service was bad. Even if you spill water, you can't wipe it.
We had to wait a long period of time for our food. People who came in after us got their food faster. Waiter barely checked on us. He walked by our table often enough to ask but didn’t.
He never apologized for the long wait.
When I searched for a restaurant in the 34th Street area and found STELLA 34 TRATTORIA, I was trying to imagine where it would be on that street. There is no indication that it is actually in MACY's. I had to ask a security guard if there was a restaurant in MACY's, he directed me to take the elevator to the 6th floor. It's a very nice place with a decent view of the tall buildings out side the windows. The food was very good and the waiter was great! I took friends who were visiting from out of town and they loved it. They liked the idea of a nice restaurant inside of MACY's. If you're searching for a variety of eateries while visiting NYC, this is a great place especially for lunch after shopping at MACY's.
GREAT PLACE, inside Macy's, but without the noise of the street!
Always wonderful and reliable food and service. Nice space.
I so enjoyed your lunch Prix fix. My guest and I both had the branzino, tomato, and mozzarella salad, and calamari. Everything was delicious, the wait staff and hostess were kind and helpful! The hostess even plugged in my iPhone when I went empty! I'm coming back!
