The service were great. Our waitress were very nice and patient. The food tasted good. I just wish for them to have more food options. I feel the me u is a little bit limited. Other than that, everything else was great.

The Madison Square Garden/Herald Square area is a surprising wasteland with respect pre-show options so Stella 34 is an excellent resource: consistently good food, and varied menu to accommodate quick snacks or full-course dining. It doesn't qualify as a true eating "destination" only because of its department store location but once in the restaurant, there isn't much to remind you that you're smack in the middle of Macy's. In any other spot, this restaurant would have hordes of devoted food-loving fans. It may already. We're just grateful it's there.

the food was okay. I am a foodie and like food that has flavor, but this wasn't quite there.
So the food was okay.

One thing that is unacceptable was, my friend ordered a beer and found a fly in it after taking a couple of sips. That's crazy and even though they were apologetic to this, they should have had given us a discount or at least free meal which obviously didn't happen.
I would not be going here again

The space is fantastic! All white with very clean lines and nice sized tables. Tons of windows give the space amazing light and it overlooks Herald Square. The food was amazing! We had calamari, shrimp artichoke risotto and beef ragout with pasta. All delicious! There were so many shrimp in the risotto. Most places usually skimp on the seafood but not here! The service could have been better. Our server clearly would’ve rather been anywhere else doing anything else. She promptly forgot our wine and blamed it on the bartender although I had a clear view of the bar and she never went to get it. This resulted in us drinking wine for dessert as we’d already finished our meals by the time the wine appeared. Otherwise it was a delightful experience! I’ve already recommended to friends and will go again when I’m back in town.

What a pleasant surprise this restaurant is. Tucked in a corner on the 6th floor of Macys, is this little gem. Surprisingly good food with a calm and trendy atmosphere. Service was slow so if you have to catch a train or a show at the Garden, leave enough time to enjoy your food

Everything here is amazing and delicious. There is nothing on the menu that I do not like. I highly recommend everyone to visit this place. Please be aware it is on the pricey side but it is delicious! Everyone must try Stella! Great date spot! All the service is very nice and friendly. They also make sure if anyone has any allergies or any strict diet.

Last minute (1:35pm) was able to make a 1:45 reservation for 3. Staff was very friendly, great view of Empire State Building. We ordered 4 apps, a flatbread and one pasta dish and it was perfect. Apps we got calamari, meatballs, risotto balls, and charcuterie. Definitely a hidden gem within Macys and a perfect escape for a nice lunch if you work in the midtown/Herald sq area!

Friends gathered for dinner prior to the Westminster Kennel Club dog show. Knowing that good-quality restaurants are hard to find near Madison Square Garden, I recommended dinner at Stella 34. My friends, who were in NYC from Maryland, loved it. We were given an excellent table with a wonderful view of the Empire State Building. The menu was so appealing that it was difficult to choose. One friend and I had the branzino, which was delicious. Another guest had a seafood combination of octopus, shrimp and crab in a broth and enjoyed it. The fourth guest had a highly original pasta dish that was flavored with foie gras. The best part of the occasion was the service. Our server, Maddie, was courteous and professional and gave us outstanding advice about both the menu and the wine list. For the wine I chose a Montepulcianio, but Maddie guided us to a much more pleasant wine in the same price range (I wish I could remember the name of it). She brought a taste of both wines for me to try, and I definitely agreed that her suggestion was the right one. All of my friends were amazed by the very reasonable $45 per person bill (granted, we didn't have appetizers or dessert), and we were happy to leave a generous tip for Maddie.

We love this restaurant for the ambiance and view and proximity to the Garden and Penn Station. It is wonderful to be able to hear oneself think, and to hear what others are saying at the table.
The food is good but can be a little pricey, and the portions are not that large. The menu is limited, so though it was my son's birthday, and we wanted to take him here, he wound up with a pizza, which he said was nothing special, nor was the calzone his wife ordered.
They were thrilled with the desserts and the other two mains and salad with shrimp were good.

This restaurant is located inside Macy's Dept. Store. It is a restful retreat after shopping or browsing. Food selection is plentiful and well-prepared. Prices are a little high, but quite manageable. Service was very good.

The view was terrific Empire State Building right outside the window. Trying to find somewhere around Penn Station that isn't a Bar Crowd isn't easy but this is a place I would definitely suggest for anyone looking to stay around that area. Food was very good - service was spotty - but the ambiance was pleasant. Hidden (almost) gem inside Macy's on the 6th floor

Decent, but not anything I'll remember that fondly. It was a step above average for NYC. The room is great, as is the design. It's nice to eat in the old Macy's building, though taking the elevators, even the designated one, in Macy's may not be your ideal pre-dining experience. (That's not their fault.)

We decided to try this restaurant before heading to a Knicks game. The prices were very reasonable and there is a nice view from the 6th floor of Macy's. There are designated elevators to take you to the restaurant; however, they do not always work on the way down. The food is meh...average at best. Service was efficient. I would not make a special trip here unless I were shopping in Macy's.
