Everything was great. We showed up a few minutes later than our reservation time - but we were seated and waited on very quickly. Everything was great!

My wife and I spent a wonderful evening. Our waiter Tony provided us with excellent service. We enjoyed some oysters and crab from the raw bar. Both of us enjoyed a bowl of cioppino as our main. We will be back.

The second floor where we were seated, for our anniversary was cold with no vibe or atmosphere like the first floor

The quality and amount of food for their Valentine's Day couple was overpriced. Sushi was ok, asparagus and mashed potatoes were cold, 2 crab legs was over cooked and soggy. the 6oz lobster tails were ok. for $119.00, split a tray of sushi, split 2 small lovster tails 6oz, split 2 shrimp, split 2 crab legs, 3 small asparagus spears, and split a scoop of mashed potatoes, split a Brownie desert which was probably the best part of the meal.

Our server Erica was not very friendly. She didn't introduce herself and she did not have a name tag on. I would not recommend her again. Not very attentive to our need.

Was there for Valentine's day. At the recommendation of the server we ordered the fried calamari which was supposed to contain fried peppers, olives and calamari. Unfortunately there were no olives at all and more peppers than squid. My wife had the seafood platter and i had the cioppino. Her first plate cane out cold. The waitress took it back and it came out barely lukewarm. Meanwhile i had to eat mine so it didn't get cold when we were waiting. Dissapointing. Perhaps the most surprising and annoying part was the almost 5% surcharge to supposedly offset restaurant expenses.....absolutely ridiculous. When you are charging almost $60 for 1.5 pounds of crab, dont expect me to subsidize your expenses for a mediocre dining experience. It cost nothing to serve your meals hot. Won't be back.

Food was good portions and created value for the overall expense. Wait staff above average and attentive. We had a 6pm reservation, arrived early by 15 minutes and were seated 20 minutes after the reservation. It was a busy Valentine’s Day, but I could not see a reason to be seated so long after our reservation time considering we arrived early. Definitive a casual dress spot, no need for anything but jeans. More of a bar atmosphere.

We went on Valentine's day in the hopes of enjoying their happy hour menu. When I received the confirmation call the day prior I asked if they were having happy hour due to Valentine's day and was told yes without further explanation. When we got to the restaurant we asked to be seated in the bar and were placed right next to the door, where we were subjected to a cold draft any time anyone came or went. When we asked to see the happy hour menu we were informed that due to the holiday happy hour only went until 4 that day. We were NOT informed of this when we confirmed the reservation nor when we asked to sit in the bar. The food was fairly good but given that we had hoped to spend less than 100 dollars and ended up spending over two hundred for a drafty seat by the entrance, I would recommend finding better value at another restaurant.

Not sure if this was a server issue or the restaurants policy but they were unwilling to put forth any effort to satisfy my families food allergies. They have a prepared gluten free menu which is great but we also have dairy and egg allergies. My daughter likes oysters but not raw. When we asked if they could put them under the broiler for a couple of minutes they said no. Every other side dish they have other than broccoli and brussel sprouts contain dairy, no potato product , hash browns or other could be done without dairy. Typically when we run into this with other restaurants the server discusses other options with the chef and are able to do something. In this case there was no inquiry by the server. Very dissappointed.

We took advantage of their Groupon for their lobster bake, and we had a wonderful time. We were seated promptly and our server was energetic and explained the process to us. Food was brought out in courses by our server or her runners, so if it was hot, it was delivered that way. Everything was very tasty (wish the lobster bisque had a touch of sherry in it, but if that's my only complaint, we're doing good!) Lobster bake was huge, a little spicey and everything was cooked perfectly. The pear and raspberry salad was amazing! They have a good cocktail menu and I for one, thoroughly enjoyed the pomegranate mojito.

Only "down" side of the evening is their valet was swamped and VERY slow, so I ended up parking myself in the ramp across the street.

Let our server know my lobster tail was overcooked and he said he would letthe kitchen know. No follow up or offer to replace it was done. Love going to Stella's, but disappointed in how things were handled.

A very good version of a crab cake on the starter list. Cocktails were outstanding, especially the bartenders surprise Noah made for my husband, based on the types of liquors he likes.

My favorite here is the Jambalaya. The corn bread served with it is great for mopping up the delicious sauce.

Hubby's Scottish Salmon was excellent and he shared his garlic and chive mashed potatoes with me. So Good!

Our waiter was Noah. We were in early for lunch and he also did the bar tending. Can't wait for our next visit.

Overall it was fun, but we were placed in a table by the kitchen and the team bumped into my son multiple times without apologizing. Waiter didn’t check in very often and missed his chance to get some drinks on the bill.
My wife and son enjoyed the four course lobster special.
My daughter and I had swordfish, it was bland and overcooked.
The brussel sprouts and crab legs were the best items we had.

This was for my wife’s 40th birthday and the 200 bill for four was hefty but expected. I just wanted a little more service when you drop a couple benjamins.

Tuna in the Poke bowl had texture and taste that was not desirable. Everything else ordered (Seafood Platter, Fish Tacos and Grilled Swordfish) was OUTSTANDING!
