This was our fifth time visiting this restaurant. We used a Groupon as did our friends. We were treated very well by our server Noah. The food was plentiful and delicious, the atmosphere is special, I will go there again.

Recommended by one of the locals who works at a different restaurant in town. Great recommendation with great food and service. The brownie batter desert was amazing and is a must. Prices were very reasonable for what you get. Will be a place we go to again when we go to Minneapolis.

The food and service is great! Lobster Bisque and Clam Chowder is excellent!
We had a reservation for 6 and we were seated quickly. The dinner selections are always great,too!
As there were 3 company Christmas parties going on, we were unable to get valet parking, but normally it isn’t a problem.

The food was amazing! I had the scallops and they were cooked to perfection! They lacked in customer service. We went for my daughters 16th Birthday- when the waiter brought out her dessert he didn’t even know who it was for. He just stood there looking at the table. After I said it was my daughter Birthday he just dropped the dessert and left. No happy birthday! It took away from a special night! The sad part was while we were eating they sang happy Birthday to another table:(

We had cold air blowing on us. We froze. Our dinner view was a huge photo of a shirtless guy pinching his love handles....it literally took my appetite away. Food was subpar at best. We will go to one of the many other steak/seafood places and get a much better experience.

Been to Stella's quite a few times. Usually, the food is quite good. This time however, we found the food to be poor at best. The food was overly salty and the medium rare filet was rare at best. The service was attentive and great, but that did not make up for the disappointing food. Not sure if we'll be back.

Food was very good, had the friend Walleye, portion seemed smaller than a previous visit, still very good. Friend had the scallops, they were fantastic as I was able to sample. Waiter forgot a drink, made up for it by not charging for it. Very good service, will be back again!

We got to the restaurant and learned that Stella's had canceled our reservation earlier that day. Fortunately, they were still able to put together a table for us so things worked out well in the end.
The food at Stella's is always great but the Ciopinno is exceptional.

Food was good but poor service. The table had been "cleaned" and set but chunks of other people's food were left on the table and seat. Oysters poorly shucked with shells broken and multiple bits of shell in the oysters. A request for more horseradish went unanswered until we asked a second time. Waters went empty for long periods.

Prices are too high for the quality.

I would not recommend this restaurant.

I went to Stella's cuz Lucia's closed and I read that Stella's was owned by some of the same people. They didn't disappoint! I had the salmon oscar. The fish was quite fresh, it came with a small salad, a medium-sized crab cake (more than enough), and mashed potatoes. Everything was served on a hot dinner plate which I really appreciate. The service was good, the wine was good, and the food was quite good. It's a little noisy in there on a Saturday night, but I will definitely be back again.

Great to be there during Restaurant Week, but that contributed to the feeling of the host not being particularly friendly (she seemed rushed), our being rushed, and similarly with our clam chowder coming out practically cold. However, the rest of the meal was awesome, and our server warmed up as the evening went on. I'd like to come back when it's not restaurant week to see if the meal can feel more relaxed and I can enjoy it more. There are great choices on the menu!

te a wonderful meal! So why a 1 star - left my credit card behind and they couldn't find it. Still no reason for a 1 star as that's my fault. Here's why - in trying to identify who to ask about my credit card I found an incorrect charge on my bill of about $20. Of course it couldn't be refunded to my lost credit card and when I tried to get the manager to figure out an alternative, he said he wasn't going to bother as he was doing me a favor by considering a refund in the first place. The 1 star is for the manager. (The waitress was a young, very pleasant young lady called Megan and I did leave her a $50 tip - last one that restaurant will get from me.)
