We arrived and the host sat us at our bar table. No one came over for 15 minutes. We weren’t upset because we were there to celebrate my boyfriends bday and he had a friend in town from LA so we were catching up but we did want to get some drinks going so I walked up to the bar and politely asked the female bartender if we had a server. She rudely replied,” well Ofcourse you do. She’ll be over” and turned and walked away!!

Now, I understand “be right over” does not mean you blink and your server is at the table but another 10-15 minutes went by until she actually stopped by and seemed very annoyed with us. In the meantime we had a server named Donitello swing by with some waters after he noticed we’d been there awhile with no greeting. We had told him we were interested in ordering some apps and drinks when our server was ready. I’m not sure if something conspired but he had stopped by another few minutes after that when STILL no one else had. At that time he took our order. The server that was assigned to us initially finally stopped over and after her rudeness we told her we would rather just stay with Donitello. She rolled her eyes and stormed off!!

I am in the same industry, now in management and I would NEVER treat customers this way. If I ever heard my staff was projecting this kind of behavior I would be appalled.. Everyone but the host and Donitello acted as if we were a huge inconvenience. I get the whole “we’re short staffed” thing but waiting over 25 minutes before our assigned server greeted us and the rudeness from the bartender and server is just unacceptable, uncalled for and very disheartening. It’s staff like that that will drive good clientele away! There is no excuse.

On a positive note: Donitello was awesome! He was fun and attentive and really made up for the lack of service and poor attitudes we encountered. Stella’s- this guy is a good one! He truly “saved the day” and bc of him we all had a great night out. He even bought us dessert 👏

We made reservations for a party of 10 redo the Covid the party was reduced to four we were seated promptly in the back of the restaurant away from the door as freezing below temperatures made it very uncomfortable to sit in the front of the restaurant the menu was great had excellent selections of fresh seafood the prices were higher than expected portions were plentiful the service was OK the waiter seemed very rushed they never told us when it was last call for the kitchen to close so even though we were there for a birthday party we weren’t able to order dessert which was disappointing we really wanted to try the Keylime pie and the cheesecake I had the blackened chicken pasta Alfredo the portions were great but the sausage they chopped up into little pieces which I didn’t really expect I thought it would came out in like a piece of sausage but it was tasty several people in my party ordered steaks which were either undercooked or overcooked all the fish that was ordered was excellent the sushi was great but again overpriced I may try to visit again during restaurant week or for happy hour specials because with the 3% service tax they add and the pricey menu may want to try this place for only special occasions

Overall great experience. Food great! I ordered a tuna poke bowl a few times from here but unfortunately it is not prepared the same way every time I come. Sometimes I get more tuna, it’s cut into smaller pieces however this time felt like everything was slapped together. Service is always rushed or they seem overworked but we come for the food and not the service.

This is a copy of a message sent to the Manager and over a month has passed and I have not heard a reply!
To whom it may concern,
On November 7th at 4:00, we dined at your restaurant. We arrived for our open table reservation at 3:45 and were told that our reservation could not be found. The greeter said that they could still seat us. After being seated we mentioned that we wished to order the five-course meal that we had received an email about on November 1st. We were told that they did not believe that offer had started yet, but that they would honor the email. We ordered three of the 5 course meals and included the wine pairing on two of the orders. All 3 wines were delivered upon receiving the first course.
The first course of diver sea scallops arrived at 4:45 and was as described. We were informed that it took so long because no one had prepared the order and the kitchen staff did not know how it was to be prepared.
The second course was served at 5:30 and I am not sure it was prepared as intended. We were served a full-size sandwich. I felt it was too much bread for what was a five-course meal.
We started getting concerned about how long it was taking each course to be prepared, our server had left and we were assigned a different person. We explained that we could not wait and that after next course, we would need the last 2 courses prepared to go. We also requested our bill for the meals as soon as possible. We had a concert at the State Theatre that was starting in about an hour.
Our third course of Lobster Ravioli arrived around 6:00 and we received the last 2 courses for the three meals in a bag.
We were not able to check what we received until the next day. The fourth course was supposed to be Surf and Turf with steak and shrimp. We received a steak in all three orders but no jumbo shrimp, no gnocchi, no wild mushrooms, no goat cheese fondu and no pickled shallot!
Dec update! Manager helped explain some of issues and helped correct situation!

Our meals were fantastic! One had a ribeye dinner. I had the blackened swordfish and another had the lobster mac and cheese. All delicious! There are a couple of reasons I gave 4 stars instead of 5. 1 the restaurant was not full by any means and yet we were seated in the back corner of the lower floor, so we were not able to enjoy the ambiance of the restaurant. 2 the crab cake was only ok and for the price it should have been much better. Finally, we added a lobster tail to the steak dinner, which cost $20, but it was the smallest lobster tail, with the least amount of meat that I've ever seen. We will never make that mistake again. Our server, Justin, was fantastic and made the dinner very enjoyable. Overall, I hope to eat here again!

Have been to Stella’s many times in the past. Made this visit to get their berry and Brie salad before it was taken off the menu for fall/winter. Unfortunately, my timing was bad and this terrific summery salad had already been 86’d. Instead, I got one of my old favorites - Parmesan crusted walleye with asparagus and mashed potatoes - and it was heaven on a fork. In addition, had a couple of margaritas made by Sean, who is a mixology genius. They’re a little pricey, but Sean’s margaritas are worth every penny! Our server seemed mildly distracted; but, to be fair, she was alone in covering multiple tables with a lot of demanding diners. Otherwise, this was an outstanding Sunday lunch.
