Overall experience was wonderful, my wife and I were pleasantly greeted and promptly seated for our 5:15 reservation. Once a year we visit Stella’s for dinner, and we look forward to it all year. We’ve never been disappointed and have enjoyed each dining experience completely, we’ve sat at the bar on a busy evening, at the country style table and table for 2 and it simply doesn’t matter to us, we’ve love it just the same. Michael was our server and his calm a professional demeanor was pleasant and relaxing, he offered the evening specials and was so easy going but engaging and it was complimentary to one of the best dinner experience of the year for us. We know to expect delicious and beautifully plated dishes, but this year’s dinner March 16th was simply Magic! From start to finish, every taste and sip was a memory in itself and of course we’re looking forward to next year’s dinner already. Thanks Stella’s and Michael for a very special night.

I love Stella’s food, though the cauliflower/feta-cheese purée with the rockfish was a bit of a fail...too much on the plate creaming up the vegetables and fish to the loss of their flavor. However the shiitake crab soup made dinner! I find myself wishing to have a cozy intimate table, but that is not the ambience of Stella’s.

Past two visits we have had excellent service! Glad to have friendly, knowledgeable, professional, competent service.

The food, service, and atmosphere at Stella's are always great. Sitting near the door in winter is a little chilly, but this doesn't really detract from a great meal.

This was our second visit to Stella's. Everything was exceptional. We had the baked oyster appetizer, the seared rockfish entree and creme brûlée for dessert. Our table was ready at our appointed time, our sever was attentive but not over bearing and the food was to die for. I know understand why it is difficult to get reservations at Stella's. It is most definitely worth the effort to get a reservation well in advance to be able to dine at this great restaurant.

Stella's never disappoints! The food is always delicious. The only slight negative is that the noise level can become very loud as the evening progresses. I highly recommend a reservation if you can get one. And if you haven't tried it, their market across the street is equally amazing.

I used to live in Richmond but moved away. This is the place I come to every time I’m back. The food and atmosphere feel make me feel at home - elevated comfortable is how I’d describe it. The moussaka is my personal favorite item on the menu, but I haven’t had anything I have not liked.

Stella’s always delivers a welcoming high level of service and attention to detail. A 35th Wedding anniversary dinner should be extra special and that’s what ours became. Great service and incredible bread and pasta. Just right, memorable and lasting.

Stella”s was packed for Valentines Day week and it was just chaotic. Total lack of any good space to wait for your table. That being said, once we finally got a seat, everything was spectacular and so worth the wait. Excellent, as always.

Everything was fabulous.... the food. Service, drinks, ambience!
My only disappointment was I ordered the soup special which was
Terrific (mushroom soup with lump crabmeat) I loved it so much that I ordered an extra soup to go. When I got home I noticed that they had forgotten to put the crabmeat in the soup.😟
I ate it the next day and it was very good , butI missed the delicious crabmeat.

Gave been looking forward to eating at Stella’s and we weren’t disappointed. The pork souvlaki was delicious and my husband’s sampler plate excellent. He said it was too much food for him but he ended up eating almost all of it. Can’t wait to return.

Stella's is a Richmond classic. We are lucky for their longevity and contributions to the restaurant and food scene. There is a very good reason reservations are almost impossible to get. The food, staff and setting are amazing. It is worth coming in very late, if that is all you can get.
