First, it smelled like dirty mop water and then there were gnats and flies flying around the table the whole time we were there. Our food came out quick but I imagine that was because we were only one of 4 tables in the restaurant. Service was good but the food definitely wasn’t worth the money. We both had the steak frites which we ordered medium well. It wasn’t even cooked medium rare. The fries were soggy and the “sauce” was more of a gravy that the steak was smothered in. Food and atmosphere might be better during normal circumstances but it wasn’t hitting on much this time.

I wouldn’t know I had a reservation and 2 hours before I got a text that they closed to clean. So for our anniversary night we didn’t have reservations anymore and no where to eat all nice places were booked

I really do apologize for the limited menu. With everything happening right now we are trying to get back to normal as much as possible, however it is going to take some time. We typically don't do food on the rooftop, but we wanted to add more seating for our customers, this is something we are new to and are still learning the best way to accomplish this. We will be launching our full menu next week and I would like to welcome you back to give us another chance. Best, Stars Management

It was a great night out. The food and drinks are a little pricey, but given the location it is to be expected.

The only negative was the bouncer. My friends and I are all clearly over 25, but he took (no exaggeration) about 3-5 minutes to inspect each of our IDs. He even did this for people that were 40+. I understand being thorough, but it was excessive.

I am so glad you all enjoyed your night out. The security was through a third party and we have made this issue aware to them and hope to not have this problem again. I hope you come see us again. Best, Stars Management

The rooftop bar was very disappointing. There was no view at all except for industrial rooftops. There was no atmosphere either. The drinks were watered down. The food in the restaurant was pretty good. Our waiter was very good!

We were under the impression that food would be served on the 360 degree viewing “rooftop.” We learned that only a bar service was available on the rooftop. The food was served in a ground floor restaurant. We had sent a special request with our reservation that we be considered for the best view on the rooftop. We were never corrected or responded to prior to the dinner. I only picked this restaurant because of the anticipated view of the city. Extremely disappointed.
We did go up to the rooftop but it was quite dead and the bartender said nothing to us—not even a greeting. We left.

Excellent Brunch! Many options available for all kinds of palates, including made to order pancakes and omelettes. Comfortable booth seating was not as conducive to buffet brunch, but would be lovely for a seated meal. Brunch price does not include coffee or juice so expect to pay $30 per person. Very colorful display.

Was there for Brunch - it is Buffet style only ; not a fan. I ordered an omelette - and it was a process just to get a Ham omelette and it was odd. It was fluffy like too much milk in it. The service was great. Good just limited. I don’t like cafeteria style - the ambiance is excellent and would be great for offering parties - our waitress was great.

This is simply the best brunch in town. Only 25 bucks for a delicious buffet brunch? And a choice of pancakes or omelettes made to order? You can't beat it. Great craft cocktails, too. We enjoyed a couple of sazeracs. The smoked salmon is always one of my favorites. We miss the parfaits desserts, though. The Pluff Mud pudding was amazing!

We ate there to celebrate Valentine's day. The service was top notch and steaks were cooked exactly as requested and were delicious. The lobster fettuccine was tender and the sauce was flavorful. This was our first time here and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

What happened to the Pluff Mud pudding?!? It is different and barely subpar. The steak was overcooked, the wine had sedimentation at the bottom. The oyster appetizer was not as good as it used to be. Very sad to see Stars go downhill looking this. We won't be back.

What a disappointment. First of all - who goes to a brunch and upon being seated is not offered coffee or tea? We were given a quick run down as to where the food was located and then left to fend for ourselves. The French toast was ok. The shrimp and grits was flavorless. But the biggest joke was the “supposed” eggs Benedict. It was cold, chewy and lacked any hollandaise sauce. The fruit was acceptable at best - if you could catch the blueberries falling off of the ridiculous display. Do yourself a favor and go to Halls.
