Always our Pré-show go to for an excellent dinner. Food never fails to impress.
Really glad you had a positive experience. Thanks for reviewing. See you next time!
Great place to eat anytime you visit NYC. I always come back either alone or with Family
Ein Großteil der Karte war nicht zu bestellen.
Kaum zu glauben das in einer Stadt die niemals schläft etwas ausgehen kann
Didn’t have many of the items on the menu and wasn’t informed until we sat down for dinner reservation that they were out of all pizzas, bread appetizers, two pasta dishes, meatballs and eggplant. Our server was attentive and apologetic when it came to the lack of menu. Stella should be more forth coming to patrons and what is to offer on their current menu. The appetizers were very spaced out, over 20 minutes between three of them. Our entrees were fair at best and the Branzino was over cooked. Wasn’t the experience my family has known it to be and hope it turns around.
The eggplant was good
Amazing as always. I just wish you could get back your signature Delizzia al Limone or expand the dessert offerrings
Terrible service. Slow and not very nice. For was great after we send an app of crumbs back.
Girls day in the City! Great start to our outing. Something for everyone one on the menu, a couple small changes honored without issue. fantastic view too. Will definitely be back!
Was good quick nice views. Food average.
Stella is our tradition when visiting Santaland. Having not been to Stella in two years there were some changes but it’s still a special place to have a meal. Menu options for everyone. The staff are friendly and there are fewer of them so don’t be in a rush. We didn’t mind we enjoyed lingering at all the view of the city is wonderful.
Food was average at best and portions were small. I ordered the shrimp risotto and the shrimp was way over cooked like rubber. My girlfriend and her daughter were basically done by the time my new food came out and no offer for something comped. It was also extremely hot in there. We wouldn’t go back.
Great restaurant close to LIRR to bring the family. Easy shareable menu and amazing views at a reasonable price. Enjoy :)
Nice restaurants near Madison Square Garden are few but I definitely recommend Stella 34 Trattoria. It’s inside Macys and stretches the entire width of the sixth floor on the Broadway side. They have a good menu with a full bar, quiet atmosphere and nice view. We spilt the charcuterie plate, eggplant parm and garlic bread. The food was surprisingly very good and the location of course is perfect being a few minutes walk from MSG. The prices are reasonable and it’s in a very pleasant, quiet setting. The restaurant is on open table if you need to make a reservation at a nice restaurant steps from the Garden.
Our server was very attentive, despite the busy dining room.
The fish was perfect and we loved the balanced taste of the burratta, pumpkin, petti squash appetizer.
Food was great
The dinner size Napoli salad is not very big. It could use more salad greens to bulk it up.
Great setting with nice view of Empire State Building! Food was very good. Service a bit slow but we weren’t in a rush!! Definitely would go back!
Service was fantastic yesterday. Food to table a bit slow, but understandable in today's environment.
Loved this hidden gem. If I never read they reviews I would have never found this place. The food was amazing. The service was perfect and overall I had a really good dining experience I would recommend and definitely dine again.
Nice, casual quiet place to take a break from shopping. Simple menu with a variety of choices.
Server was kind and efficient.
Amazing food with even better views! Best kept secret at the top on Macy’s in NYC!
Staff was super friendly and we got a great table with a view which was lovely!! Enjoyed every moment there.
Very pleasant environment.
Our waiter was nice but the food wasn’t great. We chose this restaurant for its proximity to Madison Square Garden. Lasagna wasn’t available, 2 other menu items weren’t available after 4:00 pm . Pizza was blah, rotisserie chicken was dry and the Caesar was ok. Wouldn’t choose this place for a return trip.
Food was superb! Perfect for a Christmas luncheon an afternoon shopping at Macys! Making it an annual tradition!
It was pleasant and good. The only thing I did not
Like when ordering ice cream is they game tiny plastic spoons!
Seeing old friends
Great setting and food, service is outstanding and an old school must after some shopping.
Nice really quiet place having in mind the address.
Couldn’t get the table I wanted for my party but they gave me the next decent thing.
Apparently old customers spot which is good.
When making a reservation tell them which exact table # you want so you get it. Who would have known?
I love this neighborhood restaurant. You might find it interesting that such a fabulous restaurant is in Macy's. Well.. it is! The food is consistently wonderful, pastas are fabulous.. interesting wine list.. and fabulous service. Our server, Steven, could not have been more gracious and helpful... one of the best! And to top it off..a fabulous view of the Empire State Building!
Thank you to the chef and Steven for a great evening.
Excellent brick oven pizza, tap beer was nice and cold, nice cheerful atmosphere. Only minor pet peeve order salad starter to be shared and they don’t split it or give extra large fork or spoon to help you split it. But overall really liked it and would go again.
The bigoli was bland and tasteless, with a minimum pieces of mushrooms and a very small drop (not even a dallop) of stracciatella. The risotto was delivered to the table room temperature.
Great spot for a meal before an event at Madison Square Garden. Good food and great service.
Food and service was great. Had a seat by the window with a beautiful view of the Empire State Building.
Chaotic and understaffed. Was expecting a much better experience. Drinks took too long and the food was lacking. Overpriced overall
Good place to dine.
I have been to Stella34 many times and the food is great. The service is another story. They give you these small water glasses that don’t hold much. If you have been shopping for a while in Macy’s you are going to be thirsty. Getting a water refill is difficult. I know it’s true because I kept looking around and most water glasses were empty. I ordered a Bellini as my main drink which I ended up pounding down like fruit juice. It took 31 minutes for the server to ask me my food order. That wouldn’t have been an issue except I was dining alone. You would have thought me sitting there with an empty water glass and an empty Bellini glass would have given the server a hint. I had to ask for a water refill every time my glass was empty. Even when he brought the check for the people next to me, he didn’t think to bring the water pitcher for all the empty glasses around me. My food came out quickly once I ordered. The food is amazing. After 2 hours and a lot of sitting I asked for my check. 10 more minutes passed so I finally flagged someone down that looked important. She apologized and took care of me right away including a small discount. I do recommend this restaurant just be prepared to bring your own bottled water and slow service.
Very good food - a gem within Macy’s
