Our server Amy was absolutely amazing! She offered great drink and dinner recommendations- I started off with a Prosecco and my date a mojito- both were very good! We had the coconut shrimp for an appetizer- and then for entrees I had the beef bites and my date had the blackened chicken and sausage Alfredo. All of the food was AMAZING. So delicious and good portion sizes for the price. We love Stellas and will be back again soon!

Great atmosphere out on the rooftop, unfortunately two of us got the linguine and clams and they were VERY salty and hard to eat due to this.

We love the roof top patio, especially on a gorgeous fall day! The food was absolutely delicious, we really enjoy the variety of selections! Service was great, prompt, efficient and friendly! We greatly appreciate the attention to safety measures taken during the pandemic and we felt comfortable during our visit!

I took my son out for a special lunch when he didn’t have school last Friday. We got the $60 crab that came with broccoli and mashed potatoes. It was all cold. When our server finally asked after we had been eating it for about a half hour how the food was and I told him it was cold he did nothing. Definitely disappointed especially for how much it cost.

My wife and I went for her birthday.
The service was great. Our waitress was attentive, but not hovering.

We had the mussels, crab legs, and paella. All 3 were excellent.

We’ll definitely be going again

We took my parents there for restaurant week and it was a great experience and felt very safe with COVID-19 precautions in place. The hardest thing is my mother has mobility issues and the restrooms are upstairs.

I went with a friend for restaurant week. The food was good, but as soon as you walked in the place, the stench of raunchy fish was very overwhelming. Our server was mediocre at best. Overall, it was worth it for the price, due to the huge discount we got, but I wouldn’t pay their normal prices.

Celebrating three birthdays during restaurant week. The $20 lunch special was super. The beet salad was bomb! The walleye was awesome. Justin, our waiter, surprised us with a special birthday dessert! Love Stella’s! The food and service never disappoints.

OUr first time at Stellas. Fabulous waitress! The beet salad was the best ever! I had it with the veggie sushi. First time for sushi. Discovered I don't care for seaweed-not the cooks fault. I ate it sans seaweed and it and the presentation was lovely. Husband had excellent chowder and backened swordfish. Both of us had the $20 lunch special. We will go back if we are Uptown in Mpls again.

We enjoyed our time here! The food was great especially the appetizers and sides! I would recommend trying as many small things as you can! The ambience was great and energetic with the bar downstairs and dining upstairs. The servers were extremely nice, and they took excellent precautions for COVID and public safety. Overall good experience! It is quite pricy though if you’re on a budget.

Food and drinks were good, but overpriced. I was surprised the rooftop wasn't crowded at all, despite it being a warm evening on a Friday. It's really disappointing that you can't get the happy hour deal unless you're inside, which just encourages more people to eat indoors during Covid. Why can't they lift this restriction?

Wow, first time diners and what a great experience. Table for 2 on the rooftop, beautiful views. Started with the s.o.s platter (1/4) from the raw bar, killer. All the seafood, sushi and sashimi were fresh and out standing. Clam chowder was the perfect betweener. My wife had the grilled seafood platter and I had the lobster roll, again fresh and outstanding. Wine list was limited, especially whites, but we made it work.

Food and service were excellent. Made a reservation for lunch inside. When we arrived we were told they were only seating outside. It was windy, too cool and we were not dressed for it. Wish we had been notified of this change before our arrival.

This is the third time in a row within the past two months that the service has been HORRIBLE!!!!! they need to train their servers better- as a server of 4 years I’m astonished that it is consistently such horrible service from management and the staff.

My first visit to STELLA'S was a very good experience.

I'm sceptical of eating seafood in the middle of the cocuntry and I'm no expert but I believe them when they say the seafood is fresh.

The crab cakes were nearly all crab - just enough other inredients to hold the item together. The Parmesan crusted walleye was moist and tender, yet had that crusty texture one wants on the outside. The greens accompanying both were fresh and well dressed. Service was attentive but not intrusive and related the details of the day succinctly without any gush!
