Food was very good, service was excellent.
Steak was great, salmon was pretty good but nothing amazing, they were able to handle dietary restrictions well! Generally smaller sized portions though.
Pasta was not cooked all the way and salad was a weird raspberry dressing. Not great.
Great cocktails, great service
Excellent service, wonderful menu and so many options for seating. We felt very safe and treated gently as the Stella team described and implemented their protocols.
Staff did a great job with social distancing , masks etc
Very nice brunch
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 visited Stella twice. Had a wonderful meal both times and sat outside both times. They have a beautiful patio and it is now tented for the colder weather, however it was pretty chilly. It's a romantic, cozy setting however the music doesn't fit the vibe, it was a little loud and fast.
I really liked my meal at Stella. I had received one part of my meal wrong, but the server resolved the problem quickly
Such a beautiful bar. We sat near the fireplace, it was cozy and intimate. The food was delicious! We had the octopus salad and chicken. Would recommend both!
The ambiance of the place was nice. However the food wasn’t very good, no taste and overpriced.
We had a great lunch outside. Food was excellent and service attentive. This was delightful afternoon!
Great place to eat and try and have COVID protocols in place for a very nice worry free dinner. I loved eating outside under the clear top tent. They hadn goodn air flow and heated it to make everything comfy!
great. lovely. delicious. attentive. classy. romantic
We're thrilled you enjoyed your time here. Please come again soon!
Thanks! We enjoyed your excellent service! Will visit again.
Thank you! Please come see us again soon!
A late lunch. The food was fabulous, including an octopus salad. We had two of Stellas specialty cocktails. Lovely day, lovely meal.
We're so glad you enjoyed everything, Lee. Please come back soon and see us!
Had the salmon based off the waitress's recommendation. Food was excellent. Service was also very attentive. I also feel they did a good job creating a nice outdoor venue given the current COVID restrictions.
Jared, thank you for the wonderful review. We look forward to having you back again soon sometime!
The exterior garden area was clean and lovely. Twinkle lights, greenery, pretty tables and comfy chairs, social distancing in place, and heat towers were positioned throughout. It was really lovely to walk up to with a dark sky and the city calming around us.
It took a while to be noticed at the host stand, it was not staffed, at that time. We did have to give a wave to a busy staffer. We were seated at a nice table, near a tall heater that was not in use, we later found out that the heaters where not prepared to be used at the time..no gas tanks yet. No worries, the bartender took our order for some snack and drinks and then moved us to a table close to the fire pit area, much warmer and nice of them to do for us.
We ordered the fried ravioli and mushroom arancini. They were delivered before our drinks and both tasted good. The server noticed we had not received our drinks and immediately investigate, he brought them out quickly and explained our ticket had been lost, he said these drinks were on the house. :) our second round came out very quickly. The server was friendly, honest and knowledgeable.
Now on to a few odd things..
~I’m presuming the gentleman in the suit was the host/evening manager. He got us seated, but seemed out of sorts and very distracted. The garden area did not appear busy, but who knows the chaos he was dealing with inside. So no worries.
~It took a while to get service to order and that was a smidge frustrating. The outside staffer, who I think was also a bartender, thought we had been helped by the man that seated us..no worries, service was good after his contact with us.
~Remember how I mentioned the host stand was not staffed?? Well someone ran up and snatched the iPad/Tablet on the stand then took off down the street. Another guest saw this happening and literally chased after the guy..no luck though. It was nice of him to make the effort, above and beyond honestly..
Overall, the evening was good
Thank you very much for taking the time to give us your feedback. We're glad you enjoyed the food and service, but it looks like we had a couple hiccups and we're so sorry for that. We hope to have you back in to give us another shot!
Pretty mediocre service, pretty bad food. Small portions.
Thank you for the feedback. Your comments have been communicated to the leadership team and we hope to have you back in soon for another shot at it!
Dungeness Crab Mac & Cheese... amazing. Saffron carrots.. taste like carrots. Potato Gnocchi omg yum. Burrata.. good. Would have been better with better quality tomatoes. The cocktails were amazing. The service was outstanding (YEAH, MICHAEL!), and the fruit tart was beautiful and tasty. Breakfast was also really yummy!!! 10/10 would go back.
Thanks for the awesome review! We hope to have you back in again soon!
Excellent menu and service. The patio is very pleasant and hopefully COVID-free!
Modern Italian menu with craft cocktails and an amazing wine list. Highly recommend the filet with cognac mushroom sauce. Service was outstanding- server was highly knowledgable about the menu and gave great suggestions. Location was unique and seemed to carry a lot of history. Best dinner we've had in a while! Can't wait to come back.
I would certainly take any guest to Stella. I would like to see some ice cream on the menu.
The chicken was slightly undercooked and the carrot risotto was served at room temp. I asked about the temp and it was remade or heated and served again promptly and was delicious the 2nd time around.
The service was perfect.
Any meal would feel special in this setting! We absolutely love the ambience—old school but updated. Very cool. The menu is fantastic. So many gluten free options for my niece were also items my very much not gluten free husband was eyeing. I’ve never seen a menu that had so many terrific-sounding options. And no one was disappointed. The food and service were both excellent!
I'm very glad that Stella exists! It's the only good breakfast place on First Hill
We loved the food and service. The NW cuisine married to an Italian persuasion was fun and delicious! Staff members were courteous, friendly and very helpful. We had chosen Stella's outdoor plaza (rather than the more intimate indoor dining) for our evening and found it very pleasant and comfortable. Naturally, the outdoor fireplace and heat lamps added to the ambience.
Great food and amazing service. The staff went above and beyond to make our anniversary that much more special.
Wonderful! What a great place. vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv
Food was excellent, as usual. Service is good and very personable. Sitting on the patio in the evening is a magical experience. Tables are distanced so that you do not hear each other's conversation. It seems as if you and your companion are dining alone in an enchanted capsule.
Outdoors in the patio. Waitstaff warm, informed, and kind. Food, a squash salad and chicken Caesar wrap, were wonderful.
It was a great place to eat, other than the random homeless man outside screaming nr b***h, it was very pleasant. Got the great Seattle experience. Thank you.
Mimi, thank you so much for visiting us and leaving us your review. Unfortunate expletives aside, we're so glad you enjoyed your meal and hope to see you back in with us soon!
Excellent brunch on the front plaza of the Sorrento, perfect combination of great weather, cute patio, good cocktails with fresh and interesting takes on brunch favorites. Loved the shrimp and grits I got, good sauce and big prawn size shrimp.
Boy I sure enjoyed this brunch! I would certainly recommend it
Thank you so much for the great review. We hope to see you in again soon!
Amazing food and the service was impeccable. The tables are comfortably separated so you don't feel too close to each other during covid restrictions.
Jen, we are so glad you enjoyed the food and service. Providing a stellar experience - safely distanced - is our goal. Come see us again soon!
Food good. Great old 20's dark wood inside, nice outside dining area. Noise from being close to major street when outside. Lunch menu much more diversified. The only non fish item on dinner menu was Rosrmary Chicken and bolognese sauce in one of the pastas. They need to offer beef entrees for dinner. Michael the waiter did a great job. They have great breakfasts as well.
Hi Charlie! Thanks for the great review and the thoughtful feedback! Although our menu does lean toward seafood with our coastal Italian concept, it appears you must have missed our Filleto ai Funghi - a 7oz filet mignon with garlic and herb brown butter fingerling potatoes, roasted wild mushrooms, topped with a cognac cream sauce. It's dynamite. You'll just need to come back sometime soon to try it.....
Everything was great. Kay and the waiter, and Rory, the valet were great. The only thing I noticed that wasn't great was that the table was dirty.
Thanks for the great review and the helpful feedback, Penelope! We're always looking to be better, and this helps.
I had been looking forward to the opening for about 13 weeks. I took my doctor, he works on easy walking distance, for dinner and conversation. It literally could not have been better. Al Fresco and spacious dining, excellent food and service, nothing intruded into dinner, not even a horse-drawn carriage that should have been pulling a small carriage up to the front door of the hotel. A fine addition on the edge of downtown, especially when we have lost so many landmark restaurants. Good for the Sorrento!
We are so thrilled you had such a great time. Thank you for spending your evening with us and please come see us again soon!
Fantastic cocktails and very fresh delicious Italian food.
Thanks for the great review, Mathew! Please come back soon and see us again!
