Stella could be stellar ..if the pricing was a bit lower . The location for MSG is great, the ambience and service were very good, the food is delicious but the portions are much too small for the cost.

We arrived a little early and could not be seated, after speaking with the manager he found a table. I was upset at first because there were empty tables. Service was slow.

Table service was not good this last visit. I’ve been there many times and this time the waitress was slightly unpleasant, brusk and tuned out. Otherwise I’ve had great service here. This is a great option near MSG and Penn Station and hopefully this was an isolated incident. Great bar too

Service was very good. Food was also very good with exception of Risotto that was too salty and had too much lemon flavor.

It is a great go to restaurant after a matinee where you can relax have a good glass of wine and a meal that is not too heavy but delicious. This time we had artichoke appetizer and meatball appetizer and shared a pizza. If hungry get own pie, if not share. Great view of empire state building!
Staff great and great location! Perfect to catch trains at Penn Station!

This was our first trip to Stella 34 for a late evening meal. My wife had the carciofini and I had the diavola pizza. Both were done perfectly and were exactly what we needed. Drinks are a little pricey, but overall we were quite satisfied with our meal.

Cacio e Pepe was absolutely delicious, would go back and order about ten more orders of just those, margarita pizza was also good but pretty much par for the course on the pizza end, not worth the money in my opinion so I’d stick to the pastas!

We found Stella 34 at the last minute while in midtown. We were surprised that it was in Macy's. The food was very good, tasty and fresh, but my only complaint was how expensive it is for what you get. The service was ok. I think the waiters had a long walk back and forth from the kitchen, so sometimes it was hard to find the waiter. Overall it was a very nice experience. Not sure we'll go back because of the expense.

Stella is consistent for great food, wine list and view. The meal starts off great with service and than it goes downhill. One person will take your order, another bring water, another one brings the food . Than at a certain point the original waiter shows up. You order dessert and than you wait, and wait , andwait. . Sometimes you wait 15 minutes or longer. Than trying to get the check to pot for the bill takes longer than necessary.
Stella overall is great...I would still reccomend it...but warn people ...make sure you have time when you go there.

Our dinner last night was fantastic and we lucked out with getting a table by the window with the perfect view of the Empire State Building! Was too excited about our appetizers and main meal that I forgot to take a picture but I got some of our desserts.

Surprisingly good! We ended up here after an event at Madison Square Garden. Hidden on the 6th floor of Macy’s, Stella 34 is a bright open space with pretty views over 6th Avenue and surprisingly good Italian fare. The lasagne is outstanding! Better than many Italian restaurants in NYC. While not top notch, the service was friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this place, particularly given the limited attractive options in the area.

This is my go-to restaurant for lunch when I'm coming into the city at Penn Station. I love the chittarra (spicy pasta) and the affogato (espresso poured over vanilla ice cream).

Great food! I ordered linguine pasta with mushrooms and spinach, it was delicious. My family ordered pizza they all loved it very much. Excellent service even though it was a busy lunch in December.
Atmosphere was very nice. We will definitely return!

We were never asked about our special occasion that we were celebrating, 4th appetizer came out 10 minutes after the other 3. The waitress was unfriendly and not informative about
food choices or drinks. I have been here many times before and this was a big disappointment.
