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.
Concert @ MSG
Dining at Stella is always consistent in both quality and service. Never disappointed. The waitstaff is so exceptional...timing, professionalism and personable. The menu..just perfection.
The food was too salty
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
I cannot believe it is a fine restaurant in a department store. Well done.
The food is fabulous! The service is excellent. Thank you.
Nice atmosphere. Great service. Mediocre food.
Service was very good. Food was also very good with exception of Risotto that was too salty and had too much lemon flavor.
Great service and food
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!
The food is consistently good and the service consistently attentive. Stella is a gem within the hustle, bustle, and excitement of Macy's.
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!
Was my second time there. The food “ravioli “ was unbelievable delicious “. I highly recommend this place
The food was very good, the gelatos tasted good. Overall great place with nice ambience.
Always a great experience! Loved our waiter, Chicago, great personality and service!
A best keep secret inside Macy’s! Perfect for meeting friends after work in a central location. Looking forward to going again.
The menu needs more variety
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.
Maybe unexpected in a shopping environment but it was a very nice restaurant with good service and very tasty food. We enjoyed it.
Food was solid, service was ok, not great. Overall, the view, food and atmosphere was very nice.
It was great
Better than expected.
Wonderful pizza with a location convenient to Penn Station.
Great food and view !
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.
The food was delicious, but the service was poor.
We were celebrating Christmas and toasting to the new year
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.
Food always good, poor service and slow
Always a pleasurable food expérience.
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 spot near Penn Station to grab a great dinner and glass of wine while looking at the Empire State Building. Great service, too!
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!
I have been coming here for a while but this last time everything sucked. They have all new staff that seems liked they picked up off the street.
Great setting... mediocre food... overpriced for the quality of the food
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.
