Had a great time, great drinks, and my boyfriends meal of the smoked salmon benedict was fantastic. However my chorizo & potato taco was very mediocre. Do recommend the biscuits though!

My first time dining here. We were immediately seated. Our table was comfortable. The food was very good and happy to report the noise level was not too extreme. We could actually here each other talk. I will go back.

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.

Pork chop was over cooked. Asked for medium rare and got well done. And the Brussels sprouts were super salty. The chicken was dry and small. Pretty mediocre experience.

It was the first time we had tried Stella San Jac. The biscuits were amazing. The best thing any of us had. We had a beet salad which was good, the fried Avocado salad which was also okay. Three people shared it. The chicken was just Okay, nothing exciting. The corn grits were good. The Lobster Mac and Cheese was bland. The burger huge but good. The pork chop seemed to be everyone's favorite if we had to pick the best meal. The brussel sprouts were really good. The Cosmos were awful. Our wait person was great. Would we go again? No

The food and service was outstanding. As a vegetarian I found great options and was inspired by the amazing quinoa based entree- never had anything like it before! The bar area bled over into the dining area and it would have been nice if it had been a little quieter... The restaurant was beautiful and really comfortable.

The service was horrible. It was my wife’s birthday and it was so pathetic I almost left no tip. I can get my receipt and provide our servers name... we will consider coming again, but sadly would request to ensure we are with anyone but them...

Food was good / but order was way off... biscuits showed up after we ate, $5/cup coffee and no refills. Had to ask for water 4 times - and each time there was something left out. They did a great job of trying to blame the kitchen though...

Reality was they were a total soup sandwich. Likely would prevent us from returning.

We went here with high hopes, but the restaurant did not live up to the expectation. The service was only mediocre (webhad trouble getting water glasses filled and finally had to ask a waiter from another table to service us and it was. A king while before our order was taken). Two people from our party ordered the salmon with poached eggs, but the poached eggs were grossly undercooked. We had to send them back and we did receive replacement servings fairly quickly but only one egg on each plate was edible. We were comped one of the meals. The chicken and waffles were fair, but the waffle was not crisp. The best meal by far was the French toast (it was more like bread pudding and it was wonderful). I will not be making a trip back here when there are so many other great options in the Austin area.
