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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
