Stella's - Richmond
This place was just amazing. The food is top shelf
Delicious food, and great service! I would highly recommend!
6 of us had early dinner there in the back booth, which is perfect for that size party. we ordered 4 appetizers, which we shared family style and 4 entrees, also shared family style. 3 bottles of wine. as always, the sizes were ample and we were satiated when we left. for the main courses, we selected a fish, a meat platter, a Greek pasta dish and spanakopita. everything was delicious. the service was attentive and other servers helped with clearing table and delivering courses. as always, i was impressed with the quality and originality of the food. they never disappoint. you do need to make reservations well ahead of time. have been across the street to their store but have not brought home a meal from there.
Delicious food and great ambiance. Table and bar seating. Still feels intimate since it's not too large. Super friendly staff who give excellent recommendations.
We did Sunday brunch. Great find!!! Delicious food in fun setting!!!
Fantastic experience! The food was absolutely amazing and did not disappoint. I had the filet, cooked perfectly. My wife had the crab cakes. They were delicious. We ordered the Cretan to drink. Great drinks, food and atmosphere!
Stella’s has never let me down. I cannot express how delicious their food is! I highly recommend the Stella’s calamari which is grilled calamari. Be sure to make a reservation if you don’t want to eat at the bar or the family table!
Amazing food and service!
It was because we live love each other!
Great experience! The food, energy, and good drinks set the tone for a great dinner.
We were seated in a cute window seat area. Delicious fried cheese appetizer and their house calamari appetizer. Very large portions!! We also had a sampler and another dish that had a rich Beschamel sauce. Can’t remember the name. Went home with lots of leftovers and happy tummies!
Late lunch Birthdsy celabration. Hsd great service since this eas after lunch rush. Noise was lower thsn normal so it was good to be able to chat & catch up with friends withiiut yelling.. Wine /food hit the spot! Will do late lunch again to avoid noise level !
Great ambiance and perfect place for a date. I found it to be reasonably priced for AMAZING food. The server was extremely friendly. I will definitely be back.
This was our second time traveling to Richmond with a mind to eat at Stella's. They don't do anything particularly complex, but what they make is never a disappointment. The cocktails are perhaps the more unusual of the options, vegetarian options are plentiful, and if you were thinking about leaving hungry you shouldn't ever have to worry. The space can get a little loud at times, but it makes up for the conversation challenge by being such an inviting place.
Stella's has consistently impressed me with great service, food and ambiance. Their dishes are vibrant with seasoning (not just salt!)- but they leave salt available on the table, and would cheerfully honor the request for ketchup if desired. Some of my favorites are the lemon roasted chicken, lima bean salad, any of their classic baked dishes, and the octopus. Their specials have also been home runs as well (I wish they would automatically provide the price along with the description, that is the only change I would prefer with service.)
They used to be a neighborhood spot for me before I moved to a different part of town....but I still keep coming back. It's a place that feels both familiar and exciting, and I'm glad we have such a gem in Richmond.
Not many places have roast leg of lamb and they do!
My first experience at Stellas My lamb was tough and flavorless Everyone else was very satisfied with their food. Our waiter seemed a bit condescending. One person in the group was insulted. Even after this, I would try it again and order something traditional.
We really enjoyed the evening. It was a combined birthday gathering for 3 out of 4 in our group. The food was really authentic and made you feel it was a special occasion with the specials and the varied menu. What I remember about the evening was the truly unique and fresh taste and creativity of our meals. It was a little loud but somehow you felt secular and it was a bright evening - good energy in the place. Looking forward to coming back.

The food is always great. It is rather loud and splitting the bill is always a challenge.
Great food,a little pricey,but worth every dollar.Good service.Only negative thing,hard to get a reservation.
Stella's never disappoints at any level! I have gone here for dinners with friends and business lunches. Always a treat!
Great atmosphere, excellent food...great overall scene. Love the place.
Love this restaurant, go there at least every other month. If it wasn’t so hard to get reservations, I would probably go more.
I took a fencing friend from Houston here for dinner when she was in town on business and she was bowled over! I was thrilled that she was so enthusiastic and she was thrilled to have had the experience! Hooray for Stella’s!
Always amazing food and amazing staff!! Wish they’d change their bar seating policy where you have to be on a waitlist to sit at the bar. With the popularity of Stella’s it’s so hard to get a reservation at a decent time. You used to always be able to walk in, grab a drink & wait for a table. Now that’s gone. You have to be on a list. That defeats the purpose of having a bar where you can eat.
Stella was a great place for dinner. Awesome variety of food, atmosphere and great staff.
Once again, we had a great meal and dining experience. Our server was "Ben." He has served us before ....a real professional: knowledgeable, efficient, courteous, and welcoming!
Nice family owned place which is so popular it’s very hard to get into but they have a community table
Such wonderful food! Staff is amazing.
Food was fantastic and our waiter, Ben, was professional, funny and attentive. Will definitely go back and take friends.
Get ready to make Stella's your favorite restaurant! But plan ahead if you want to eat at this popular place! I recommend that you make reservations a few days ahead, or else you might be waiting a while for a table. Bar seating is often a faster option when the restaurant is busy, and some people prefer it. The entire vibe at Stella's is family friendly, from the hostess to the servers to the other patrons. Most important, the food is amazing -- delicious and creative!
Went with 3 friends, the 4 of us shared 5 mezes having them served in rounds. Truly a lot of fun. And great drinks!!
Stella's was recommended by a friend some time ago but it is hard to get a reservation. This time we planned a few weeks in advance and we are glad we did.
The food was great as was the service.
We are looking forward to visiting again soon (and will plan ahead).
I took my 91-year old mother and my brother (who lives in Paris) with his two daughters when they were back in Richmond for a visit and it was a smash hit for everyone! We were even seated at one end of the communal table which didn’t hold any appeal for me but it worked out just fine! Who doesn’t LOVE Stella’s?
LOVE LOVE LOVE STELLAS! 15/10 would recommend! Great service, incredible food!
Always a great dinner & enjoyable time at Stella’s. The service was just right as was our meal!
Amazing, as always
We had a lovely attentive server and delicious food! Great venue to celebrate our 30 th wedding anniversary!
Amazing food and great ambiance! Tables were close together but it was just loud enough where you couldn’t hear the conversations next to you. Can’t wait to go back!
Always a wonderful experience! Food is incredible.
