Good food, good price for the food. Highly recommend the deviled eggs and the biscuit starters. The pork chop was a thick cut and well prepared. Excellent brussel sprouts.

I had my 25th Birthday Brunch at Stella San Jac and my group of 10 had an AMAZING time! Our server Tyler took excellent care of us. If we lived in the area (we visited from DC), I would most definitely return!! The crowd favorites were the doughnut holes, brussel sprouts, both the coffee cocktails, the bloody marys, the fried avo salad, the shrimp and grits, the salmon benedict, and of course the biscuits. Everything we ate, we loved.

I would recommend only if they improve their customer service. Their food and ambience are great--its their servers' service that destroys the entire experience.
We had to look & ask for our waitress to check up on us to refill our drinks etc. We even had to get our own extra condiments ourselves! We were so embarrassed from our guests who were visiting from out of state. This is NOT how Austinites Welcome guests, and not even their own locals!

I had an overall great experience, except for one thing— the water tasted like fish. I know I sound crazy but I asked my boyfriend and he agreed! The service was exceptional and the food was incredible, but the fish water resonated. My only complaint though!

Our reservation table for my birthday was beautiful. it was in a semi private room toward the back of the restaurant. Tyler L. was the best server we have ever had. I would give him 11 stars but you only gave me 5 lame ones to choose from. Tyler made me feel like I was the only table in the restaurant even though I saw him run to at least 5 others. His attention to detail along with his food and beverage knowledge was incredible. We had the #16 biscuits, short rib grilled cheese, pecan French toast and a smoked salmon Benedict. The cocktails Tyler recommended were out of this world delicious. We had a carafe of stellamosa, a Chai Milk Punch, and an Irish Coffee Ball. Thank you Tyler for an unforgettable time and Nick the manager for stopping by to make sure we were having only but the best time! we will be back soon. it'll be hard to stay away from Tyler with his kindness and funny jokes. he sets the bar for his commitment to excellence.

I came here with a group of 9 for my bachelor party and if I could give this place 10 stars I would. The staff was extremely accommodating and service was absolutely outstanding. My group ended up coming in two separate groups slightly late for the reservation but they did not make a big deal about it, they provided extra food and champagne toasts for the whole group for free because of the occasion. They even went as far as giving us access to the rooftop pool/bar after we ate and taking group pictures for us.

Other than the amazing service, our food was great and prepared quickly. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice dinner in Austin without having to pay ridiculous prices.

The atmosphere was very nice and quiet. The food and service were good. Did not care for the augratin potatoes with the steak. Seemed like a casserole offering and was not a good pairing with the entree. We'll definitely be back though. Everything else was delicious.

What a wonderful surprise. We made reservation at Stella Jac because we were attending a concert at Antones across the street and had low expectations. We were thrilled to uncover a gem. We had the most delicious deviled eggs we have ever had. So good we went for another round. We ordered the short rib and the crispy chicken. Both were cooked perfectly and incredibly tasty. We did not have desserts but will be back to try. To top off the wonderful food, the service was incredible. Brittany, our server was sweet and helpful. Autumn, the manger came by for a chat and was absolutely lovely. We are local Austinites who have seen a lot of quality restaurants and this one will now go into our rotation.
