    We've been here numerous times, so not sure if it was just a bad night, or if this is the post pandemic reality here. The hostess looked like we were bothering her when we arrived and the food was underwhelming. The Wagyu sliders were the best part of the meal. The pear salad had an inedible pear that had been poached in way too much clove! The bananas foster was a huge disappointment! Just lots of vanilla ice cream with some sliced bananas on top and a little caramel at the bottom of the bowl. The bananas tasted like they had been cooked in a rum butter sauce, but there was no extra sauce in the bowl, just lots of ice cream. Maybe it was the ratio of ice cream to bananas and sauce that was just wrong. Again, not sure if this was just a bad night, hopefully, it was!

    I did want a pumpkin martini and I was surprised a martini bar couldn’t make one since it’s a nice fall drink so my second choice was a Pomegranate martini and it was delicious! The tenderloin tips were fantastic and the garlic Parmesan fries also . I was very disappointed in the fall arancini balls . They were very plain but advertised as having sage, roasted squash and goat cheese in them . No taste of any in the dish :( Just plain risotto:( I definitely wouldn’t get those again . Service was good and dishes were presented very nicely .

    The food quality went way down. Main dishes were not as advertised…. Apps were okay, drinks were pricey but ok. Would not go back to eat. A real same- we had our wedding reception there 6 yrs ago. It is terrific. Servers were fine. If you want a bar to drink at and have money to spend, this is a good option.

    The high prices and extremely small portions result in very poor value for your money. Likewise, the cocktails skew towards the eclectic and many are pretty gross, either too sour or sweet. Should one not agree with you, the servers will instead mock you for this rather than helping resolve the issue. Likewise, the quality of food, especially if something was overcooked will be met with an apology but no attempt to resolve. For example, we ordered several wagyu beef sliders, medium-rare, but they arrived well done while the server and manager on duty did not agree, choosing instead to apologize that it was not to our liking. I do not recommend this place.

    Too freakin noisy. Not the place to go if you just want to have great food, great service and conversation. No evidence of any sound dampening devices. Its like a giant echo chamber and several very spirited customers kept the rest of us from hearing our friends.

    Drink’s were okay. The reason for this poor review is that my husband was served his entree while I was eating my salad. By the time I received my entree he was ready for dessert. Ridiculously poor service. The food was just okay. Nothing great here. Won’t return again.

    I would definitely come back with a date. Unfortunately, I was stood up. But my server took care of me and she understood the situation; which made my stay shorter. She was very helpful. Hopefully next time I attend, I will make my date feel like she is the luckiest girl in the world. Nothing me nor Stella Blu could control..but it’s a great spot

    We hadn’t been to Stella Blu in a long time and it was so refreshing to dine at a restaurant that had perfectly balanced cocktails and unique, fresh and tasty small plates. It is rare to find this combination In a restaurant! Our server, Bob, was attentive and so very knowledgeable about the cocktails and dishes. We will definitely not wait so long to return!

    Glad Stella Blu periodically changes their menu. Great items last night. My favorite is still their steamed chicken dumpling. Love the intimacy of the restaurant. We stated the tuna and gave immediate feedback to the owner regarding need a lot more taste of wasabi. Hubby enjoyed the egg roll which we both agreed could also use a kick. Restaurant was busy, so service was a bit slower. Or could be that servers had tables inside and outside. We were inside, which still was noisy. Outside had a singer wo seemed to be trying to belt it out? Kind of like a bit of peace and quiet. We come regularly, specifically to have tapas. Tasting more than 1 dish is the way to go. And Stella Blu is reliable.

    We hadn't been to Stella Blu since pre-Covid, and boy are we glad we went! Drinks were sensational! Great mix of ingredients and so refreshing and tasty! The food, for us, was "meh". It was ok. We had a super waitress who was very attentive and made great suggestions on our drinks! I would recommend and I would go back.

    Gave the restaurant another try after our first experience was a disappointment. Our recent visit did not change our opinion on the service or quality! Service was very slow with only a few customers. Ordered the farm vegetable crudités for an appetizer and the vegetables looked and tasted old and dried out. Mac and cheese with bacon was warm with little cheese and way too much cracker crust. Our server did not check with us to see if we needed anything, or if our order was to our liking.

    Went here for our wedding anniversary; we were in the Hudson area and I found this place online. The menu caught my eye, and it did not disappoint. The ambience is great, service and staff were wonderful- very friendly and attentive. The food was amazing, and prices are very good considering the quality of food. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice night out and some great food.

    Our dinner was delicious, every item we ordered. Small plates Brussel sprouts and calamari were both good size to share and outstanding. The salmon dinner was perfectly cooked and also excellent. As others have mentioned, it is a loud venue, more bar like volume, so if you want a place where it's easier to talk, this might not be it. We went knowing that from the reviews, and we were ok with it. The food was definitely worth it!

    Loved it and would recommend to all. Would ask that small plate portions be reconsidered so as to lend themselves to sharing, i.e., three scallops for 2 people. Also need to improve the wine selection. What they have is fair and could improve easily and still maintain the moderate price point.
