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.

Stella's has been amazing every time that I've visited. My go to dish is the Moussaka or Shrimp Santorini but have also tried the Pastichio, Pasta No. 5 (which could easily feed 3 people), Kotopoulo, and Souvlaki (just to name a few). The food is fantastic and I truthfully have not found something that you could go wrong with! As far as appetizers go, the Saganaki (flaming cheese), Grilled Octopus, and Kreatopita are all phenomenal! Request Micheal as your waiter if possible. He's attentive, cordial, and sociable.

Stella's is AMAZING and the food is to die for. We plan our travels to Richmond around Stella's reservations. The Saganaki is wonderful, domades are HUGE and tasty, black kale OMG, pasta is sooo goood! Chocolate Bakalava is excellent. I could go on and on and on. Wait staff are top notch. It is consistently packed. Don't go here for a light bite, you will leave very very very full!

We ordered 5-6 dishes, and they all almost came right on top of each other, I was disappointed in that. It was Christmas Eve and I felt rushed. However, the server was courteous and efficient, the food was wonderful (as we had been told it would be).

We had a fantastic meal at Stella's and everything was perfect. The service, the drinks, and of course the food. I come from a Greek family and have had many of the dishes on offer at Stella's dozens of times. I was blown away by the authenticity and execution. We will definitely be returning.

Stella's is a Richmond tradition, and one of my favorite restaurants in town. Be sure to leave room for dessert, as I understand Stella make them herself. There is also a take out across the street in Stella's market.

As with every meal we have enjoyed there since the restaurant opened, the food was great and authentic to the Greek traditions begun by Stella in her original location, second location and the current one. Service is good and there is always an energy level that seems chaotic with a constant line waiting to be seated after 6 PM.
