            Everything was really delicious. Especially loved the steak, the chimichurri was the best I think I’ve ever tasted. What a hidden gem in Truckee. We came back for breakfast and it was phenomenal as well. Kudos to the chef and staff. This will be a new staple for us.

            Excellent meal! Loved our appetizer - wings with the habanero sauce, followed by red leaf salad. I had the branzino - cooked to perfection, and husband had the hangar steak. Tres leches for dessert. Would highly recommend! Just delicious!

            Limited menu largely focused on fresh veggies. Quality of food and presentation was very good. My flank steak was not prepared well - overcooked based on my order. My wife's entree was done perfectly. Limited wine list. The cabernet was pretty good. Very good service. Not too noisy so my wife and I could have an actual conversation during the meal. No annoying background music.

            Intimate mountain ambience and wonderful, unique food with vegan options. This is perhaps my favorite place in Truckee-Tahoe. The dinner price would keep me from coming too often, but this is a special place.

            Very nice, Friendly, good eats, well done. We've been there twice, Stella offers a small menu, that is probably very wise they can focus on making the dishes to perfection. I would like a fish selection though. First time there was a nice fish, last time no fish. I loved the food we were served; Turmeric Chicken, and Cauliflower dish Both appealing and real tasty.

            Delicious appetizers; the baba ghanoush offered a perfect balance of garlic, lemon, cilantro, and pepper, as well, the falafels were perfectly fried. They had a very fine crunchy crust and a warm fluffy texture. The taste was delicious. The entrees were average, a set back. The branzino was a bit dried out, and the cauliflowers were slightly over "wood" fired. The size of the chocolate cake was ridiculously small. For this class of restaurant and prices, should we have been charged extra for a very small platter of crudites served with the baba ghanoush! The service was pleasant, but not professional. One plate was removed before the other people finished, and the check was brought before we asked for it.

            Good food and variety for the price but we were rushed out after having been there for about an hour and 15 mins. There was no time limit on how long you could stay mentioned prior to making our reservation and we would not have come if we knew there was one. We are on vacation so wanted to have a relaxing dinner.

            Really excellent food in an intimate setting with only a few tables. The menu is limited and if you get there late some dishes will be sold out. Nevertheless the food they have is all good so you won’t be disappointed. It’s a really nice kind of hidden place in the north Tahoe region.

            A nice place to eat, great food, very cozy. Service was a bit rush, the waiter cleand up the table and brought the desert menu while one of the persons in the party was still eating.

            I have eaten at Stella several times in the past and just love it. This time there were several reasons for the review: - Wrong salad delivered. They offered to replace, but we just kept it - Meat under cooked - Fish over cooked - Told people were waiting for our table after 1 hour 15 minutes while we were finishing our $18 a glass wine. Sadly, I probably will not go there again based on this experience. It was $250 for 2 of us, which should be a mind blowing delicious meal.

            This is the best restaurant in Truckee. The food is excellent and the service outstanding. Given the quality of the dining experience it is also an excellent value.

            Very limited menu, but quality of food and wine was very good. If you get there later in the evening, as we did, they may be out of some dishes, making selection even thinner. Still, nice ambiance, service, and owner-chef made it a point to speak with diners at each table. Would definitely come back.

            We love to dine at Stella's for quality food with interesting flavors. I love that there is always at least one vegetarian option in their limited menu. It's small and popular, so make a reservation!
