A glass was dirty and drinks spilled out. One meal was different from what I ordered.

I was grateful that Stella was open during thanksgiving. We went to get dinner with two other friends. However, staff was running lean and the kitchen was slow. Our food took 45 mins to come out. It was cold and the steak was raw when it arrived at the table and a part of our order never made it to us. Everyone else around us was on the same boat. It may have been better for everyone if the establishment was just closed on the 26th. The staff would get a break as well.

This was ridiculous. We barely sat, were told we could not get another table even if the tent was 90%empty and even accounting for social distancing. It was freezing, the only thing the waitress told us was « well everything else is closed » and she laughed. I told her our house was not and we stood up and went back home. At this time when businesses are struggling I was amazed to see an employee clearly unwilling to help customers and simply laughing at us. We sure will not be back.

Greatly appreciate the Food and Beverage Director calling to let us know about the limited menu and that the tent would be rather cold.

However, the food was subpar, service was slow, over priced for what it was

Horrid experience. We were really looking forward to spending a lovely evening under the toasty star tent. Unfortunately what we were looking forward to was only a fantasy compared to what was experience. The tent was ABSOLUTELY NOT heated. The heater was working however they had all the side windows open so all you felt was a very cold breeze the ENTIRE time. People were shivering, cold, and trying to keep warm under their jackets. Servers didn’t really care, they also only had two servers for about ten tables. You’d think that would be good however the servers were gone for a majority of the time making the whole experience just last that much longer. The food was great the first 2 minutes on the table but then it quickly cools down due to the wind chill which was below freezing this particular night. I will have a much more detailed review on google when I get a chance to write it but please avoid this place until indoor seating opens up. Unless freezing into a popsicle during dinner is your thing then have at it lol

I went with 4 of my girl friends to sit under the twinkle lights and have fondue. When making the reservation you click “3 course fondue” and then there was 3 options.
Inside outside or regular. Only regular was available so I chose that.

Apparently when you click the fondue on reservations you have to click outside. So I was very disappointed to come to our reservation to be told not only did we have to sit inside but that “fondue was sold out”. Literally the only reason we came.

The host did not try to fox the problem and wouldn’t let us sit outside even if we waited.

Since we decided to sit inside instead and split a bunch of appetizers and entrees. Food was fair besides the Caesar salad (which was disgusting ), and very over priced.

I just don’t understand how when reserving you literally have to click the “fondue in the star garden” to make the reservation and still end up inside. It was very misleading and we never had a manager come by or anything.

Pretty sure they do it on purpose just so they can fill up their dining room which was a card table with a few candles on it.

Not happy with how this place operates !

The setup itself was very cute. It was Halloween day and it was very festive. The food was not that good. Shrimp & grits- grits flavorless. Avocado toast- not toasted enough. Needed salt. Too much cheese. Best dish we had was the frittata but it had wayyyy too much balsamic drizzle.

This is the perfect place to enjoy a meal outdoors. The space is enclosed with a see through tent and heated to a cozy temperature. Each table sits on its own oriental rug and tables are spaced 15-20 feet apart. There are huge plants gracing the area and delicious food! Delightful and SAFE place to dine !

Meh. We were seated at a table close to the entry door which felt like eating in a hallway. I asked about seating in other areas that appeared to have room but was told I had to sit at Stella. The Bolognese was pedestrian and a bit dry. Same for the Gnocchi. The drinks and wine by the glass were ok. My bad I guess. I was hoping for a richer experience and was disappointed.

We were so happy to get out for brunch, and Stella did not disappoint! The clear tent with plenty of space between tables and heating kept us comfy, and the food was superb! I highly recommend the brioche toast, they even made a special sauce for it to accommodate my food allergy. Terrific experience!

We went to Stella when they still had their tent up. At first we fest very excited to be there, they made sure we were comfortable and that the heater wasn’t blowing in our faces. They took a long time to get to us to order, which was fine, we didn’t mind. However, we ordered an appetizer, wine and our dinner and finished our wine and appetizer 45 minutes before they brought us our dinner. We know when it’s busy that sometimes things come out late but we had a reservation and yet people who were sat around us and after we had already gotten our appetizer and were served dinner and finished before we even received our dishes. Two tables ordered exactly what we ordered and for some reason ours came out long after these other tables were finished. We feel as if there was some discrimination going on due to our age and belief that we couldn’t afford it or something. Really just unfortunate.
