Stella is a welcome addition to New Hope. The food was delicious and our server, Steve, was great. The pacing of the meal was just right. We came for a birthday dinner so we were okay with the higher prices. The drinks were quite pricey ($22 for a 9 oz pour of wine) but were less expensive at your table than at the bar outside. The location was amazing, right on the river. Will definitely come back!

Food and drink are excellent, but don’t expect to be full after eating, small expensive plates better off getting a few dishes and sharing. Great views, but loud drunk people right behind us. Will come back again for drinks and appetizers and a beautiful outdoor area.

We returned to Stella after a prepandemic excellent meal. However, our meal last evening was very disappointing. Not only was the food extremely salty, I felt we were served leftovers. Everything we ordered was not good, from the very oily gnocchi to the extremely dry cod. Although the ambiance was lovely and service fine, the quality of food did not match the prices charged. Friends who we had invited completely agreed. The one item we did enjoy was the bread tray. We should have ordered two and called it a night.

Our service was simply outstanding. My mother did not care for the eggs benedict; she said the sauce was strange. The food was good but not fantastic. However, the mimosas are large and satisfying. We had an outside table and the river view was majestic. Parking is a major problem; don't expect to park in the lot, you'll have to find a separate spot on a New Hope side street. Our bill was high for what we ordered.

Didn’t live up to the hype. Apps and dessert were fine, however the entrees seemed like they had been sitting around for a while before they were served. Salmon and scallop entrees were nothing special / average. Tomato and beet apps and the blueberry dessert were good. Table service was good. Surprised to be seated in the center of a dark basically empty upstairs room until we asked to sit by the window to have a view of the river. So many choices in New Hope, won’t rush back here.

Fun experiences but don’t understand why you have to charge so much for bread. We eat regularly in fine restaurants and have never paid for bread. Bread was good but not superior to other places with good bread

Never having been here before we weren't sure what to expect and it was amazing! The restaurant itself is beautiful overlooking the river. The ambiance was really so spectacular. The food was so delicious - we ate every bite of the cod and scallops. The wine list is really great too and cocktails quite original. I'd highly recommend Stella.

We had dinner at Stella and the food was wonderful. Everything was piping hot, perfectly cooked and well served. Our server Tanya was amazing. She knows in-depth detail about the wines and recommended a Zinfandel that was delicious. Highly recommend!
