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.
The absolute best corn chowder I’ve ever had!!!
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
Loved it! Great fancy date night. They were so accommodating, even with the COVID restrictions.
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
Hi Prince, I'm so sorry you had such an unfortunate experience. I'd love to have the opportunity to chat with you about it more in depth. Please feel free to reach out to the hotel anytime tomorrow and ask for the Food and Beverage Director so that we may rectify the situation.
I love the tented patio. Food and service were good.
Worst customer service I have ever experienced and still in shock by how we were treated.
Hello Yelena, I'm so sorry to learn you had a bad experience. I would love to understand more of what happened and perhaps have you back in for the high quality experience we're known for. Please feel free to reach out directly to the hotel and ask to be directed to the Food and Beverage Director so we can resolve this matter.
Very beautiful restaurant. The food was great and the service was even better definitely going back
Thank you Fatima! We're so glad you enjoyed it. We look forward to having you back in.
Food was delicious and service was great. I will return once they reopen
Thank you! We're thrilled you enjoyed it. We'll be back in no time! Come see us in the spring!
I wish they were staying open with their tent seating, it was great
We're so glad you enjoyed it. Please come back and visit us in the spring!
So sad to see that things will be closing down here until the spring. The tent is truly beautiful to dine in!!
Thank you! We'll miss you too! We'll see you this spring!
Was a great experience. Food was great and so was the service.
Thank you for the great review!
Atmosphere was wonderful - during COVID-19, it's hard to go out, but Stella made it work! Food was great, simple, Italian inspired dishes, great wine, fabulous cocktails. Service was spot-on, no waiting for our next course - it was timed beautifully!
Thanks for the awesome review. We're so glad you enjoyed everything. We hope to see you back in when we open in the spring!
Not good, we wanted an outdoor table because of Covid19 but there were not enough heaters and it was extremely cold.
Service was kind of slow. The food was terrible.
Our waitress was very pushy on the recommendations, all top priced items, when we told her we’ve dined here, multiple times before and had favorite dishes she kept suggesting new items and didn’t listen to the fact we already had made our choices.
I loved this full dining experience. The outdoor tented room allowed 20 feet of separation between tables. We had wonderful attention never needing anything. A superb bottle of wine for a reasonable price and best of all it created beautiful memories.
Thank you, Jean! We hope to see you back in when we reopen in the spring!
During COVID, it's hard to judge a place because of restrictions and spacing. But, on our Sunday night dinner, it was cold, brightly lit, and the food was okay -- nothing too special. Nice staff!
The food at my visit was terrible. The potatoes were very, very salty and I was stiffed a sausage or two. Also, the servers were very distracted and seemed hard to find. I hope this doesn't happen again!
Hi Robert, We're so sorry you had such an unfortunate experience. Looks like we were struggling a bit there. We acknowledge that and hope to have you back in to make up for it. Feel free to reach out to me directly and I'll arrange your reservation for you.
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 !
Hi Melanie, I want to apologize for the reservation mix-up and for your unfortunate experience. Your feedback has been received and we hope you come back and give us another shot. Feel free to reach out to me directly, and I'd love to arrange your reservation personally.
Great food & service! Loved the lights in the tent!
Thank you! We hope to see you again soon!
Loved the ambiance of the whole restaurant. They were out of quite a few things though. Hopefully the next time we go back they will have their full menu. Also for a a drink I recommend the la strada. It was nice and tasty and goes down really smooth!
Thank you! Please come see us again soon!
I loved my breakfast. The only issue is that the server seemed to come and go, and might have been a bit distracted.
Thanks for your review and feedback. We're always looking to improve. We hope to have you back in soon!
Loved the tent. Hotel Sorrento is one of our favorite neighborhood spots when we want to feel like grown ups! Crowd at the next table was raucous but it was Halloween at the Sorrento. Service was so good and very appreciated.
We will be back for s'mores!
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.
Thank you for your feedback. Your comments have been communicated to our culinary team. It look like we missed the mark on this occasion. We hope to have you back in to give us another shot!
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 !
Thanks for the awesome review! We hope to see you in again soon!
Very good experience .The server were very nice and the food was great! Beautiful setting.
Will recommend to friends and family.
Thank you Leah! We're so glad you enjoyed everything. We look forward to having you in again!
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.
Hi Tim! I'm so sorry you didn't have the experience you were hoping to have. We hope to have you back in to give us another shot!
The patio at Stella is the perfect solution to safe outings now and will be go to spot in future! I Iove eating outside and now Seattle has more options. Stella offers good food in fantastic location. I will be back!
Thanks for the great review! We look forward to having you in again!
Great food, service and safety!
Thank you! Come see us again soon!
Food was very good, service was excellent.
Thank you! Come back and see us soon!
The outdoor dining arrangements were really creative and welcoming.
Thank you! Please come back and see us again soon!
Steak was great, salmon was pretty good but nothing amazing, they were able to handle dietary restrictions well! Generally smaller sized portions though.
Thanks for the helpful feedback! We hope to have you in again soon!
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 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.
