The atmosphere here is always amazing. My issue lays with the hostess almost always being rude, and our waiter knew we were in a hurry for the check but we waiter 20 minutes after we asked for it to get it. My chicken was so dry I couldn't eat it. Overall I recommend for a date night but I wouldn't say the food or service is what makes this place special, it's the fancy vibe. Also our table was seated almost touching the ordering computer and waitstaff were always so close to us- felt a little invasive.

Better idea than reality. Two of us ordered the short rib grilled cheese which was heavy and greasy with a bucketload of fries next to it. Neither of us ate very much of it and the server asked if we wanted to-go boxes which we both declined. Another in our party got the chicken fried steak which was also a heavy, unappetizing disappointment. When you are bringing 3 full plates back to the kitchen you think either the server of the kitchen staff would want to know why. Expensive and underwhelming food; we will not return.

Oh my goodness!!!! THIS RESTAURANT!!! WOW!!!! Such a great night out! The beet chips and dips were a good start. The pork chop with Brussels sprouts was melt in your mouth. The quinoa and zucchini was such a treat. We cleaned our plates and ordered dessert. The dulche de leche cheesecake is probably one of the finest cheesecakes I've ever had. The piece de la resistance was the strawberry shortcake. Oh my stars!!! There are almost no words to describe this fantastic spin on an favorite using goat cheese. Seriously, I could die tonight and be ok. We will return to Stella San Jac whenever we come to Austin. Thank you for one of my most favorite meals ever!

This was a very nice place and we thought one of the few newer restaurants that had healthy, unique food at reasonable prices and decent portion sizes. The selection was SUPER varied. Nice! Something for every taste. The BISCUITS are AMAZING. Ask for extra honey if you like that!

We dined there for their set menu on Thanksgiving while visiting Austin. The food and service were excellent. We didn't feel like we were pushed thru the meal at all. Everyone enjoyed the meal and i got all of the kudos for finding such a gem. thanks for making me look good, SSJ!

The biscuits we’re phenomenal! The service was great, but I wish she would have told me there was a $3 upcharge when I asked for another vegetable as I didn’t like the one that came with my meal after tasting it. The charge is not the issue, the fact that she didn’t tell me there would be one is.

We had a group of 6 people in town at the Hilton for a conference. Just a short walk away from the hotel is the restaurant. Really enjoyed the unusual appetizers, eggs and biscuits, along with our dinners and wine. Stayed to talk for a long time after dinner and never felt any pressure to leave. We all had a good time!

Excellent appetizers ( deviled eggs), entrees ( chicken with char grilled grits) and short ribs. Unique and interesting, delicious cocktails. It was one of the best meals that I’ve had and we all walked away with the same impression. Service was outstanding as well. We would definitely do it again.

We came here for lunch and were impressed with the layout and design of the restaurant, as well as the service, food menu and the taste of the food. We were able to taste their Brunch menu because as a restaurant they like to start serving it since Friday. To start we ordered three fresh pressed juices: the Rejuvenate, the Inspire and the Refresh with a side of their #16 Biscuits. They are a house favorite and it's evident why, these biscuits are fluffy, fresh and delicious. As a main dish we had their Smoked Salmon Benedicts, the Stella Burger, the Short Rib Grilled Cheese and the Baby Chiogga Beet Salad with a side of grilled chicken. For dessert we tried their Strawberry glazed donuts and they were the perfect way to end the meal. We will be coming back, for sure.

Delicious food! Great service, it just took quite a bit of time for our food to come out. But everything on the menu is great. We had the deviled eggs, avocado toast, French toast, shrimp & grits, and biscuits & gravy. Plus a couple smoothies. Definitely a bright and lovely atmosphere.

We met friends on a Sunday around 12:15 PM for brunch. Overall, the experience was good but it took FOREVER to get our drinks, to get our food and to get our bill. We'll definitely give them another chance but if it's the same experience we'll definitely pass beyond that. As far as the food, half our party really liked their food while the other half said it was just "okay". They do have some interesting choices so we'll try different choices next time.
