Stella’s was fantastic. We enjoyed the ambiance, the food was delicious and the portions were huge. Our favorite was dessert- the Ekmek. Will definitely return!
Had a 5:30 reservation and called to see if I could move it up to 6:00. Was informed that I could but there was another reservation at 7:30. Asked if it was reasonable to think I could be served and finished by 7:30 and the answer was yes however some folks like to extend the experience by lingering. Food- my wife ordered Moussaka and it had been overcooked to the point of being crunchy! I know we should have sent it back but did not do so. It was disappointing!
The first time we went to Stella's we sat at the bar and had the best food and service I have ever experienced in a restaurant. We were so excited we got reservations and were disappointed in the food and the service. Now back for the third time and had the same results as the second. Maybe we need to take a chance and sit at the bar! Seems the service and the food would be better. Linger, indeed!
Is our 14 years anniversary. Did nothing special for us and didn’t even ask about it. Overall just okay.
My hubby and I were in town for the VMFA's Terracotta Warrior Exhibit; we quickly scanned OpenTable for a place to get dinner and the menu wowed us. Y'all - it all tastes even better than it sounds! I can't remember the name of the mezza, but it's got meal and bechamel sauce wrapped in philo. Do it! Also, get the crab and mushroom soup. I wish we had skipped the tzatziki because it came as a side on two of the dishes we ordered. Oh well, still delicious!!!
Stella's never lets me down! As always everything was fantastic--Service, Food, Ambiance. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! I had a friend in from out of town and everything was perfect, THANK YOU!
We went for my adult son’s birthday. Food was very good. Started with the spanakopita and loved the prosecco drink w/ Apertol and St. Germaine. The Rockfish over risotto was a special and was delicious. It was a very pleasurable dining experience and we plan to return!
Stellas is the best Richmond restaurant and you won’t find better Greek food!
Incredible food, big portions, great wine pairings! One of the best restaurants in Richmond, hands down.
Amazing as always! Great cocktails, specials and desserts.
After making a reservation weeks in advance and getting 2 calls to confirm our reservation, we arrive on time only to wait 20 minutes while parties with later reservations and walk ins are seated before us. We’ve been going to Stella’s for quite some time and have always enjoyed the atmosphere and food. We also know that a reservation is needed, so that was made well in advance. I asked if we could sit at a larger table, that a party of 2 was leaving, because we have been waiting and also so we could enjoy ourselves by not being at a cramped table for two. I was told that all the tables had reservations tonight but she would see what she could do. She was able to sit us at the table for 4, but the table that was intended for us never had anyone seated at it until an hour later and it didn’t appear that anyone else had to wait more than 5 minutes from when they came in for their reservation. After being seated, it took additional time to get service - enough time to pick out our wine, appetizers, entree and sides. Sometime at the restaurant, I got an email from Open Table stating the restaurant informed them that we did not make our reservation and I was sent a reminder of their no-show policy and to follow up!
On this occasion, our food took almost 45 minutes to arrive once we placed our order. It seemed entirely too long and nobody acknowledged how long it took to get our food. Good food but overrated. Also, the tables are entirely too close together. My wife's butt was in somebody's cheese plate everytime she got up, and she isn't a big girl.
Just one of the best in Richmond that's all. Fair prices, great food. Make a reservation today.
Seating is a little tight but food was wonderful and service was 👌
Stella's is an all around great place! From casual drinks at the bar, to Sunday brunch, to a decadent dinner, it is good for it all.
Fantastic service and food. And very understanding when we were late and missing 2 people from our reservation because of illness. Richmond gem!
Had an early meal before going to a play. Waiter was helpful with choosing a wine as well as an entree. My husband ordered the lamb which was so tender and flavorful. I ordered the moussaka and split it with my friend. It was savory with a rich sauce. Portions are large so don't be afraid to share a meal. Stella's is always a favorite in the Richmond area.
We get to Stella’s as often as possible when we come to Richmond. The grilled octopus, Stella’s calamari, mushroom and crab bisque and Cypriot salad never disappoint. Dining early means a less noisy restaurant.
Waitress was never at the table and disinterested . Tables were very crowded together and the food was overpriced. Terrible experience, ruined occasion.
My husband and I have been wanting to go to Stella's for quite some time, but they do stay booked up. We were excited to get reservations at 5:30 on a Saturday night for his Birthday. When we arrived the place was full, vibrant and alive! We had a very professional waiter who knew what he was doing. The food did not disappoint. The grilled octopus and sampler platter were delicious. Another great experience at Stella's!
great greek food and homestyle cooking. Excellent service.
There’s a reason why I always recommend Stella’s to people new (and old!) to richmond. The service is great, the ambience is magical, and the food never EVER disappoints! Thank you for always being so wonderful.
Great local place with wonderful menu and service.
Very busy and took a while to get a table even though we reserved one ahead of time. Otherwise food and service was excellent!
Stella's is a Ricmond staple. It has wonderful Greek food, flaky spanokoita, flavorful mousaka, and devine baklava. With an interesting wine list and a cozy ambience, what more could you ask of a neighborhood classic?
My friend was in town and we came to Stella’s for dinner on a Friday. I had to make reservations because I’ve heard Stella’s books up fast. We had such a lovely dinner. They had oysters on special and they were the best I’ve ever had. Our waiter was super helpful and friendly. They had a great vibe there and I can’t wait to go again!
I had always heard about the legendary Stella's, and the food was out of this world. I woke up the next morning wanting to go back immediately! The atmosphere was trendy yet intimate, and I'm already counting down when we get to go back.
Fabulous food as always!
Stella's is always the best - best food, best service... our favorite place.
Fabulous hands down. Can’t go wrong at Stellas. Would recommend to anyone visiting.
What a great place! We'd heard a lot of good things about Stella's and our meal exceeded our expectations. The Greek comfort food was delicious and the ambience was lively and comfortable. I can't wait to go back the next time we are in Richmond!
