Always the best!!!
Wonderful meal with excellent service!
Incredible birthday dinner at Stella's! We over ordered even though we split the oyster appetizer, classic Greek salad, spanikopita, whole bronzini sea bass with orzo pasta, rice pudding, and salted caramel gelato w/coffee and a cocktail. The salad was huge, tasted fresh, but did not wow us. Everything else did.
The food was paced a bit fast, and our waiter was unable to get our bottle of wine order before we had eaten our entree. A disappointment, but it made room for the dessert. Their salted caramel gelato is my favorite dessert. Ever!
The ambience is excellent, but the food is wanting. The moussaka was all bachamel sauce...could not eat it. Just overall, very average and definitely not worth the price. And their wine pours are chintzy!
please get rid of metal ceiling . Great restaurant but conversation in there is always a struggle. You can afford to do better
Family dinner. Everyone more than satisfied with their choices. My husband and I ordered 5 small plates to share and that was too much even with our son helping out. Son ordered Moussaka and it was delicious. Wine choice was excellent. Service was excellent. We will definitely return.
Another remarkable dinner at Stella’s. The branzino was cooked perfectly, crisp skin but moist and tender within. My wife had the vegetarian moussaka and gave it very high marks. While Stella’s is always busy and the noise level can be elevated, service was friendly and brisk without being intrusive. We highly recommend Stella’s, but be sure to reserve your table in advance. It is deservedly popular.
We had 2 of our dishes (the main dish, and dessert) come out warm on the outside and ice cold on the inside. One of the dishes was a lamb shank so that wasn’t good. Nothing was done about it they just wrapped it up for us to go. Only good thing was the flaming cheese.
Two top tables are WAY too close together.
Your elbows are practically touching the persons next to you.
The food and atmosphere were amazing. Highly recommend.
The food, as always was exceptional as was the service.
Graduation celebration. Did not realize how booked they are. I had a choice of 5:15 or 9:15 reservation. We went at 5:15-no regrets. Have to go back to try more of the menu. Artichoke moussaka, pistachio and lamb shank were all FABULOUS! Also chocolate hazelnut baklava with salted caramel gelato. Excellent waiter.
Food and service were outstanding. Restaurant was very noisy due to rowdy patrons. We were able to carry on a conversation. The restaurant is very high energy. But with the food and service we would still return.
Stella’s never fails to offer a delicious meal for a good price with plenty of food to take home!
Wonderful warm staff. Great food and fine drinks
setting is warm and cheerful. Oysters on the half out of sight
I found it hard to believe that all the reviews saying how great Stella's was were true but they are. They definitely are true. Go eat at Stella's!!! Try some daily specials. You will not be disappointed.
Great service as always, getting a reservation takes time and you have to wait months before you can get reserve. Celebrated my birthday and enjoyed the majority of the meal; wasn't impressed with the special, too much beet mash that was overwhelming and didn't compliment the fish main entree. Will stick to my usual pasta dishes next time, but overall, love this great restaurant!
Wonderful, yummy food. In addition to the great menu their specials are always inviting. We LOVE this neighborhood restaurant. Always packed and without reservations you will likely have a long wait, BUT WORTH IT. Service is great. Very friendly crowd. One of our FAVs.
Stella's is one of my favorites. Everything is absolutely delicious, and the staff is nice.
Good food though I see the menu prices were increased since our last visit. Still the best Greek in town. One annoyance lately is that they call me to confirm our online reservation, wish they would stop that, other restaurants are doing that too. If I can't make it I'll let them know.
Unfortunately, 4 of us did not particularly care for our 4 different meals. They were unimpressive for a reservation that required over a month wait. The salads were huge - almost to the point of ridiculous, which seems wasteful.
Our server Emily, was top-notch and we appreciated and enjoyed her service.
Food was amazing and service was excellent! Very energetic place that is well lit and cozy. A little warm the night we dined but it was a very muggy night.
One of Richmond’s finest
If you are looking for authentic Greek food, in Richmond Virginia, look no further. Neighborhood restaurant, with lots of character!
This place is a hidden gem with wonderful food, service and staff. We brought out of town guests who stated the desire to visit it again on their next trip here.
After many recommendations, my wife and I finally made reservations at Stella’s. The food was excellent and plentiful. A little noisy, but could carry on a conversation. Our server was excellent. I had the whole bronzino since I had read a review that raved about it. It was excellent. My wife had the Pasta No. 5 which she also loved. Will definitely come back.
The service and food here is always wonderful and the menu has many great option and specials. All of our food was excellent!
from the moment we walked in the service was outstanding. Everyone in our part thoroughly enjoyed their meals...Rockfish, Salmon, etc. My co-workers from out of town were very impressed with the food and made our business meal less business and more fun.
Exceeded expectations. We recently traveled in Greece and the food here was every bit as good as we had there. What more can you ask?
Management went above and beyond to ensure a positive vibe for my 20 y.o. son's birthday. They allowed me to bring in a sugar free cake! Food was great. Service was good. It does get crowded and loud.
Food was fantastic and very reasonably priced! Would definitely go back!!!
Fantastic as always. I was brave this time and tried the grilled octopus after having plate envy on previous occasions. It was delicious! Great cocktails, great atmosphere, great food. I wish I lived in the neighborhood and could just walk over whenever the mood strikes. But then I’d rarely be anywhere else!
We drove over an hour to go to Stella's. It was worth every minute of the drive and we look forward to our next date night there. We met friends after dinner and they also raved about Stella's and how we were lucky to have gotten a reservation - sometimes it takes weeks, and I can understand why. Everything was GREAT
Stella's was awesome! My family and I went for my birthday. My family are very picky eaters, so they were a little nervous at first when they saw the Greek words, but the server was very patient and helped them find delicious options. The portions were generous and we had a lot of leftovers. We loved it!
My only suggestion to improve the experience would be for the staff to inform diners of the price of any specials when noting the specials of the day that are not on the menu. That way there are no surprises when the bill arrives. We had an excellent meal and Stella's remains one of our favorite restaurants in Richmond.
Went for my parent's birthdays and it was fantastic as always. We enjoyed all of the appetizers, entrees and our personal favorite - ekmek for dessert. Great wine selection as well.
We loved Stellas. The food was amazing and creative, the service was great, and the drinks were delicious. It was a very memorable meal. The restaurant is hidden in a neighborhood which makes it very cute and easy to find parking. Highly, highly recommend!
This was my first dining experience at Stella's and I am certain it won't be my last. The menu choices all looked amazing but I went for the specials, an oyster appetizer and halibut entree, and both were delicious. The cocktail menu is very creative. I think Stella's is one of Richmond's premier restaurants.
Our table was ready for us tucked away in the corner which was lovely. Our waiter was great, gave us space, didn’t hover. Food was delicious as it always is! Now I need to come for brunch!!
Everything was fabulous --- however, we were seated right next to the bar, and had to hear every last minute detail of someone's unhappy life. The food was worth it though!!!
