Good food but portion size on the scallops was skimpy. Two scallops for $18? hmm. But they did taste great. Service was absolutely exceptional! Noise was a bit much on the rooftop patio and it was a little chilly without the outdoor heaters, but still a very nice atmosphere overall. Would definitely go again!

It was a wonder evening.

The roof top was quiet and the guest spread out.

Our server was too notch, offer very good suggestion and she made sure everything was served when we were ready.

The oyster and mussels were fresh and very tasty. The Jambalaya was spicy and full of flavor.

The food and drinks were all satisfactory, and the rooftop view (during sunset no less!) was very enjoyable. I definitely felt the sticker shock of $90+ for a couple drinks, one appetizer, and one entrée. Don't personally feel it was worth it... If you're looking for a place to splurge a little, I would recommend elsewhere.

Outdoors, rooftop, open to breezes, but shade from an intense sun. Perfect for a pandemic. Server was great, asked all the right questions. Prices reasonable, portions were ample.

It was a beautiful to enjoy an early afternoon of appetizers and cocktails on the rooftop! I think our server said she was new, and was okay....she was learning. The food was excellent, but it was a little pricey for what we had.

We went to Stella's because we wanted good seafood - celebrating 28th wedding anniversary. We started with the spinach and crab dip - YUM. Husband ordered the seafood platter. He said the scallops were the best he ever had (so hat's off to the chef). I order Ahi Tuna and I didn't like it. Waitress was quick to ask if I wanted something else, so I ordered the shrimp instead. She rushed the order so that we could both eat at the same time. Waitress was EXCEPTIONAL, (I think her name was Julie). Our glasses were never empty and she came by to check on us several times. When the bill was presented, they didn't charge us for either of my meals. The Ahi Tuna, I am sure, was really good, but it just wasn't for me so we intended to buy my dinner. I found that to be extremely over the top considering the issue was me, not their product. We will be back. Thanks for making our anniversary dinner outstanding

Since it was a beautiful afternoon, we really enjoyed sitting in the rooftop dining space. The umbrellas provided pretty good shade....but my daughter was a little too much in the sun. Everything we ordered was really good: oysters, sushi, walleye tacos. We will really look forward to going back:)

We had a very energetic server (Dulche) who helped us out. The entrees food was pretty good.

We ordered the Chef's Special/Chef's Choice (1 dozen fresh oysters). They were great tasting but some of the smallest oysters we've ever eaten. So, given the price, that was pretty disappointing. Not Dulche's fault , to be sure.

The lobster bisque soup was so delicious (and gluten free - yay). My massive Cobb salad was great. My husband's entrée Salmon Oscar was delicious.

The only downside to eating at Stella's rooftop patio is that they use it as a smoking area without telling non-smokers. They do not have a separated area for smokers which is reasonable but permit them to sit anywhere. Nothing so ruins the taste of a good meal that having smokes around you from the neighbouring table. All they need to do is set up a smoking area and then ask people if they want to be seated in the smoking area or not. If they fail to do that I wouldn't recommend it.

Upon arrival we were sat at a dirty table. Once we received a new table. My server Laurie touched my straw versus handing me my straw with a napkin. When I asked her to give me another straw with a napkin. She became rude telling me she washed her hands all day and talking to other staff one in particular about the situation . I've been to Stella a number of times I've never received service this way. I didn't order a full meal to this service. Tell the services it's a pandemic and customers don't know or assume hand washing. Whether or not hand washing or pandemic I DON'T WANT ANYONE TOUCHING MY STRAW THAT I PUT MY LIPS AROUND. THANKS

Stella’s is absolutely amazing. The food, the service, the staff and clientele are all great. First time visiting this weekend and we could not be more pleased with our experience. Portion sizes of both the meals as well as the desserts are superb. You will not be disappointed if you go to Stellas’s. Highly recommended !!!!

We avoided the hot, late-afternoon sun and dined indoors on the main level. It was peaceful and comfortable. Our waitress, Ty, was absolutely wonderful!! We had 2 young children with us (4 and 6) and she was just perfect with them. She never wrote our order down, but remembered every bit of detail for the 4 of us, including drinks and special requests. She was prompt, funny, warm, and right on the money!! We will be back and looking for her!!

If you go expecting to pay 5-star prices for an Olive Garden quality meal, you won’t be disappointed.

Food is bland. Extremely mediocre. You can get better seafood elsewhere for half the price.

Rooftop patio is awesome and but not for that, and its location in a neighborhood full of affluent youngsters who don’t know what good food is, it’d have closed years ago. Will we be back? Sure, because it’s walking distance from our house and the rooftop bar is nice. But every time it’s disappointing. It has the potential to be outstanding but chefs and owners don’t seem to care.
