    The restaurant is beautiful. It is also lively and at the same time serene. Very different than other restaurants in the Tahoe area. The food is inventive and delicious—and the presentation is wonderful. Great, small and excellent wine list. It was a wonderful evening!

    Great little gem of a restaurant in Truckee! Food was so tasty. Love the gluten, vegetarian and dairy free options. Also, the Indian influence dishes were a nice surprise.

    We were disappointed that the menu didn't match the one we had looked up online. There were only 4 entrees to choose from, and two were vegetarian. Although our fish was delicious, it was small enough to be considered an appetizer! The polenta underneath was about 2" x 2" - I think that in particular could've been larger. The menu is pricey, and the portions don't match the price. On a good note, the desserts are delicious.

    What a hidden gem we were looking for a new place to have dinner, and thought we would try Stellas the food was superb the wait staff was kind it and attentive. Overall I would say it is one of the nicest meals I’ve had in quite a while. Everything was cooked to perfection. I will definitely be back.

    All around great. The one critique is offer is that the outdoor patio, while contemporary and beautiful, has a lot of traffic noise. A water fountain might have helped drown it out.

    Adding our group to the waiting list was a fail. We arrived at the restaurant after receiving a confirmation text only to be told “we can’t serve you tonight” without any regret or apology. Very disappointing. We went into town and found several better and more welcoming options.

    The food at Stella's was excellent, although the main meal choices were minimal. We ordered appetizers and wine, both were very good. Service was adequate, but we had requested an outside table for our Anniversary dinner and they sat us inside. We would definitely come to Stella's again.

    It was me and my wife’s 10th anniversary and they were amazing. Not only was the food incredible (we had the branzino and the tinga tacos) but the service was great. They surprised us with champagne for our anniversary and didn’t charge us for it. The dessert was to die for (we had the flourless torte and the mango/Chile sorbet), and food was quick to come our for everything. Hands down the best meal in our 10 years of marriage. Harts off to the whole crew there.

    My previous experience at Stella was lovely. This time the restaurant staff was careless about a food allergy I notified them of as soon as I ordered and they served me a dish that contained the item to which I am allergic. I felt ill immediately, notified the staff but they initially denied any wrongdoing. Eventually they discovered their error and accepted responsibility but I became violently sick.

    Fantastic upscale restaurant we will definitely be going to over and over again. We had the hummus and eggplant appetizers which were excellent. All of their dishes have a unique combination of ingredients. The peaches in the peach salad weren’t quite ripe so they were hard and not as tasty as they could have been. The mushroom vegetarian tacos were wonderful. Decent wine selection and healthy pours, not the 3 oz glass a lot of restaurants are doing these days! The staff were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
