Stella's - Richmond
Had a fabulous as usual dinner for four people. We had reservations, but had to wait a bit which was fine because we had awesome cocktails (manhattans). We had the oysters corfu,saganaki, rockfish, chicken, green beans with tomatoes, and hummus platter - and left feeling full and completely satisfied. The server was awesome and she was very knowledgeable about the specials and food, and suggested the sampling based on our dietary restrictions. One of my fav local spot in Richmond!
Food and service is amazing... Very cozy restaurant but very comfortable environment... Will absolutely be back
Always consistently superb cuisine!!!
We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. We went to Greece on our honeymoon and we come to Stella’s on our anniversary every year to enjoy and remember the great food we had in Greece!
Everything was wonderful: the ambience of the restaurant was upbeat yet cozy with candles glowing all around the room; the food appeared in good time thanks to an attentive and personable waiter. As to the food, it was delicious! The specialty appetizer, flaming cheese with figs, had a wow factor and the figs added a pleasant sweetness to the cheese. Spanakopita was large, flavorful and supplemented with a generous amount of tzatziki sauce. We ordered entrees and had so much food that each of us took home enough for another meal.
Nice restaurant, good food, great wine. Server a tad snotty
Had dinner on a Saturday night. As we had reservations we were seatrd promptly by the very busy bar. Our appetizers of Greek salad and spanakopita were delicious. Our main entrees of short rib, grilled octopus and fried zucchini were flavorless. Surprising considering other diner reviews.
One of the best meals I've ever had! The filet with crabmeat was unbelievably delicious. Go!
We enjoyed this neighborhood gem - however a couple of dishes were not up to par. The others were excellent. I would steer away from the flaming cheese - it was basically some slices of provolone melted on a tray with some flaming liquor. Also, the pasta No.5 with marinara was just ordinary. However, the Pastichiato was exceptional!! Must order! Also, the spanakopita and the tiropita were excellent starters.
Drinks were great - atmosphere fun. We'd definitely go again.
We chose to celebrate birthdays for two of our group at Stella's recently and had a wonderful time. The four of us shared 7 mezes and it was MORE than enough food. We also enjoyed ouzo, retsina, and other cocktails making the evening very festive. The only complaint is the noise level is high, making it challenging to enjoy all the conversations at the table.
The food was wonderful and the service was impeccable. Stellas is one of my favorite restaurants in Richmond and I enjoyed myself as much as I always do. I can’t wait for my next visit.
Love this restaurant! It will not disappoint, on any level; food, service, atmosphere. Highly recommend it! I think I will start making a reservation for at least once a month. Everyone in our group totally loved it.
My food came out 5-10 minutes after everyone else in the party and it wasn’t that good. My husband said the same we would go elsewhere
Must make a reservation. Sharing several "small plates" will allow you to try a bunch of excellent dishes.
Our server was awesome and the meal was delicious as usual!
Friends visiting from Connecticut requested Stella’s. 💕💕💕
Our table was ready exactly to our reservation time. Server was knowledgable and very pleasant. When we need a really special place to go..Stella's will be it.
Had dinner at Stella’s on a recent pleasure trip to Richmond. We were lucky to be able to get one of the last remaining reservations for the evening and we were not disappointed! Great ambiance and delicious food!!
Stella’s was enjoyable over all I rate the experience 4 stars . One star is deducted due to food quality and noise level. My husband and I ordered the sausage baked oyster appetizer and shared a berry fruit salad. Which were both specials for the evening . Both dishes were delicious. We also ordered the pikelia and Stella’s filet as entrees. The pastries on the pikelia were over cooked how we the filet was delicious.
Food was wonderful and punctual. Initial greet took awhile but that’s the only complaint I could have.
Great place. Food and Service was excellent. Glad we spent our 34th wedding anniversary here.
Amy, our server, was incredible. Worked the wine list, described everything and was patient in our place of going slow.
Great atmosphere. Best grilled Octopus I've ever had. Highly recommended.
Stella's is a small, local restaurant with a unique and varied menu. There are many choices of appetizers, tapas, and main courses, plus several specials. We have been there several times and the food has always been excellent. I'm not really knowledgeable of Greek food but it seems authentic. The grilled octopus is great. On this visit I had a grouper special that was delicious. The restaurant can be loud on busy nights but everyone is enjoying themselves and the food.
Our meal was delicious as always. The service was
wonderful. Thanks, again, Stella’s!
Service was very good. Food was average. My wife's crab cake was burnt on bottom. Too many patrons packed into a small space caused noise level to be high.
Stella's typically doesn't disappoint so I was a little surprised by this visit. My husband and I had a reservation and we were seated right away, arriving a few minutes early. Our waiter stopped by to tell us he would be right with us, but we waited for quite some time as he attended to his other tables. When we were able to order we decided to start with the mushroom saganaki (always a great choice) and an oyster appetizer that was a special that evening. My husband tried the first oyster and there was a piece of shell approximately the size of my thumbnail in it. We didn't try the others after that. Our waiter took them back and offered to have a fresh order sent out. The second order also had shell and sand in them. They were inedible. Stella's did comp them but they obviously don't have someone experienced in cleaning oysters. After that it was a mixture...my entree of halibut and scallops was AMAZING but my husband's filet was a little burned on the outside. I am not sure what was going on with Stella's that night, but having spent $148 plus tip we were let down by the experience.
The food is always amazing at Stella’s! Dinner was superb, service was attentive and the atmosphere lively! Great time enjoyed by all!
The Greek wine was wonderful... loved the unique food options !!:) can’t wait to go back
Great neighborhood vibe. Delicious cocktails, apps and entrees. Attentive and gracious waitstaff.
My boyfriend and I had never been to Richmond but were gifted a stay at a local Inn and a gift card to Stella's. We made a reservation at Stella's not really knowing what to expect but we were absolutely blown away by the delicious food and STELLAr (see what I did there?) service. My boyfriend is not typically a fan of Greek food (So weird. He has other redeeming qualities thank goodness) so the fact Stella's was able to win him over was a miracle. He loved everything he tasted and with a newfound appreciation for Greek cuisine. A wonderful experience all around!
Great service and food! It’s pricy so definitely for a special occasion!
We go here annually.. Best Greek food....Enjoy it every time....Great little restaurant...many thanks,. bg
Everyone seems to love this place so we wanted to see what it was all about. Now we love it too. Even if you are not a fan of Greek food, I’m sure you will like Stellas
Stella’s is always my go to for when out of town coworkers come to visit, as well as dates, evening drinks, etc.
Fantastic service and food was incredible! Best bread and olive oil. They took Greek food to a whole new level of love for me!! Prices were good for the large and tasty portion sizes. I’ll be back!
It was a delicious meal with fantastic service. Can’t wait to return.
The food was great. Make sure to get a reservation, the atmosphere is nice but the seating is limited. The staff was wonderful.
Calamari was excellent!! Our party lived the dip served with it. Fish outstanding, service top notch. Our 2nd time there but not our last!!!!
