We went here for NYE. Food was delicious and the service was amazing! It did seem to take quite a while to get our food considering we were there fairly early in the evening and they weren’t that busy yet… but it was worth the wait!

Meh…
I hate when I believe the hype and end up disappointed! Very average dishes, nothing exciting. Overcooked (and expensive $17) Swedish meatballs.
Took an hour to get our food. We were almost late to the Orpheum, and that was the only reason we ate so near to downtown. It was cold each and every time the door opened, air shot straight through the galley-style bar area. Loud music added to the cold and chaotic vibe. One and done, I’m afraid!

Stirnella has a consistently great menu, with carnivore and vegetarian options. Don’t forget gooey butter dessert. Holy cow.

My wife ordered a kale and broccoli salad ($14) & and an add on of chicken ($14). When you’re paying nearly $30 for a salad I’d expect something of a fine dining experience best salad you’ve had in a while. It sadly wasn’t. The salad by all means was good, but then we got a slice of a chicken breast and a chicken wing on a separate plate as a $14 add on. I ordered pappardelle, which tasted great and was $18. Not bad… other than the fact that my entree was more like a side. I was done eating in 6 bites, and sadly in other places in the local area I have gotten 5x more pappardelle that tastes better and actually have to leave with a meals worth of leftovers. We also for an app had the Burrata (not sure if I spelled it right). It was bland and lack luster and although they mention many things that come with the dish… the toasted bread (5 slices) were the best part. It also cost $16 I believe. With 3 dishes& 3 drinks we ended up spending over $100 for a meal that left me still hungry. The service was meh, but I won’t say much bc I know how many restaurants are since Covid and the lack of staff. Overall the food was average, overpriced, and I wouldn’t go back. The atmosphere of the restaurant was the best thing it had going for them.

Nice restaurant but dinner service at bar severely lacking even with several open seats. Had to request water twice, had to again ask for bar drink that was ordered, waiter stood right at register and entered food order but when it came from kitchen it was incorrect because he did not type in modification.

Sat several minutes waiting for either of 2 bartenders to return to check on meal but female was busy and gentleman was visiting with 2 other employees. Finally took the plate to him so he could take it to the kitchen to have it fixed. Requested manager and surprise she was one of the people he was visiting with. He then proceeded to tell us how busy they were. Again, open seats at bar and in restaurant.

Totally understand short staffed restaurants with pandemic but this was not one of those instances. Unfortunate because this is a nice restaurant but there are certainly other places to go with more attentive and better trained staff. Incorrect item was removed from bill but would have preferred a nice evening out with both meals delivered at the same time and staff that cared.

First time customer. Very nice! While the restaurant became full while we were there the noise level was not affected. Enjoyed the ambiance and innovative food. It appears that the neighborhood is developing with newly renovated buildings, including apartments and businesses that add to a growing nightlife. Despite being busy, food was delivered quickly.

Inventive and comforting is a great combination. Inspired takes on deviled eggs, asparagus risotto, and gnocchi Bolognese made for a satisfying evening -- and the Thursday pasta deal is a splendid value. Alert, solicitous service, as well. So glad Stirnella is still around!
