The food was fine, the service was good with one key exception. one of the two bar tenders wore his mask covering only his chin.The Restaurant indicated the staff wore masks in consideration of this corvid 19 problem. The tables were were respectful of the 6 ft social distance but the bar was not. and to exacerbate the problem, one of the bar tenders was not covering his face properly. When this was pointed out to a manager, he said he would "talk to him". How that mitigates the damage already done is a question.

By not respecting the health concerns of the customers, specifically this one staff member, our experience was ruined and it is doubtful that we will return.

Haven't been in years, but booked a lunch rez while my in-laws were in town. They have such a solid menu and execute each dish really well. Menu doesn't seem to rotate much, but in this case it's a good thing. I was excited to have one of my old favorites. Great service and drinks, too.

Excellent rooftop seating with enough space between tables. We were about 10 min late for our reservation and called to inform, still seated right when we arrived. We had a high top (there were only 2 in our party) Cannot stress how wonderful the waitress was, and we both loved our food & cocktails. Stella's is always a good choice for Uptown

First restaurant experience with masks and social distancing. The outdoor rooftop setting was lovely and felt completely safe. It helped that the weather was so nice. We had shelter from sun and a nice breeze. Then the food was excellent as well. Sushi and tuna tacos. Attentive service. We’ll be back. (This was lunch, by the way.)

We ate on the rooftop patio, our first meal "out" since the pandemic limited restaurants. The server was friendly and attentive, the food was wonderful and the outdoor ambience was delightful! The chef's special that evening was a king salmon fillet with morels, highly recommended by the server. I ordered it because I love morels, and their season is so short that they're extra special. The dish came with no morels, so when I asked the server about it, she quickly brought us a HUGE plate of buttery morels to share, to make up for the oversight! Delicious dinner all around.

Food was delicious, but seemed like the servers were still figuring things out after re-opening. He messed up our order twice but claimed it was his fault for entering the wrong things. When we ordered something he assumed what it was vs. actually listening. We ordered the Chef's specials and he didn't even know they were listed on the menu.

Drinks were good, ambiance was a little crazy there were drunk people running in and out of the entrance, I'm not sure what was going on. This was at 7pm not their normal late night insanity.

Host was rude I walked up and gave my name and reservation time, and asked for a table by the window if available. He didn't say anything to us just grabbed menus, walked over and seemed to throw them on the table, and walked away without ever saying a word. Not sure what his problem was.

Only disappointed thing I noticed was a manager was wearing his mask around his mask talking to tables. You could tel these were people that were regulars. But still follow the rules. Be a good role model for your employees

We ate on the rooftop which was pleasant. The inside seemed dark. Mixed drinks were weak. Good wine selection. Many menu choices. Everyone enjoyed their meal but it was pricy.

Took my son to Stella's as we are the only two who eat fish in our family. We had a Groupon for the Lobster Bake for 2 with a bottle of wine and wow! was it a great value! The food was delicious, Opened with a lovely cup of lobster bisque, followed by a tasty pear salad.

The Lobster Bake itself was huge! Lots of lobster, mussels, shrimp, sausage, and greens, all in a delicious broth. Served with a grilled baguette and drawn butter. We ate until replete and still took home a big bowl of seafood gumbo. Skip the flan and go for the brownie for dessert. All served with a crisp white wine.

Our server was pleasant and knew how to serve (we left her a hefty tip!). The restaurant followed COVID protocols well so we felt safe dining there. A lovely time and we will be back!

Food was not hot, they screwed up our appetizer then brought it out with our entree. Very average food that is way overpriced. I don’t mind paying for good food, so make it good.
