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!

The food and service was good but because of inflation and the pandemic value was not there with the selection and cutting out the third course dessert it wasn’t a restaurant week value!

If you want space between your table and the table next to you Stella 34 is the place for you. It is a surprise restaurant because nobody would expect such nice space and decore from a restaurant within Macy’s. I’ve been going for years and I am glad that they managed to survive the pandemic, despite midtown being virtually shut down. In my last visit I only had two appetizers — eggplant parmigiana and sautéed Brussels sprouts. Both delicious. And the Rosato wine from Sicily was delicious (though not cheap)

The food was delicious and the presentation very lovely. The wait staff was attentive but not intrusive. The restaurant was on the 6th floor inside the Macy’s at Herald Square. There was an express dedicated elevator to the restaurant so access was easy. My only negative comment is that the restaurant should have stated that they were inside the store. It was confusing when we were trying to locate the restaurant from the street.

Relaxing atmosphere, solid service, quality food, spacious seating, low noise level, open window view, conveniently located close to Penn Station. A great place to meet up friends from New Jersey.

My office is around the corner from here and this is my go-to place for lunches with clients and friends. The food is excellent and the room is big, light, and airy. Great views toward the Empire State building. There's no place like it that I know of in midtown.

Outstanding food, as always.
Service was a little slow at first, since they were short handed, but wait staff made it up with efficient, effective, and friendly effort.

Sunday-holiday weekend-quiet. Good service-not rushed. Veal meatballs were good but not hot enough. Ragu was exceptional.
This restaurant was always a bit overpriced but the food is very good usually

Was a little annoyed that we weren’t told when we sat down that they would be closing at 8pm. Luckily, we had arrived for our 7:15 reservation 15 mins early, so it wasn’t too disruptive, but, as I say, annoying.

The food wasn't that great. The service was fine, but the steak was well done when we asked for medium. They redid it and it was medium rare. We just decided to eat it because we didnt want to wait any longer for the food. Will not come again.

Been many times but this time I was not at all impressed with the food quality and service. Waiter never really checked on us and I ordered coffee and dessert but my coffee came when we were already done with dessert. May not go back again.

Good food, interesting views, pleasant ambiance, terrific service. Not a date night spot, not a foody spot, but a pleasant place for a tasty meal or a snack. Certainly the nicest restaurant any New York department store has had in decades.

Fabulous food with bright airy space, attentive service and stunning Empire State Building views. The crusty sourdough bread, with virgin olive oil and sea salt was a treat, as was the lunch filet mignon. A lovely escape from the crowd of Macy’s. A worthy destination.
