Always awesome, that’s why it’s hard to get a reservation. But, so worth it!! Good craft cocktails, both traditional and creative Greek dishes. Our food was hot and well prepared! Can’t say enough good about Stella’s!

Always outstanding food and service. Authentic preparation and large portions for reasonable price. Only minor complaint is that some chair seats are low relative to table (at window). Will go again.

We had rezervation for 8:15 PM get there 7:30 and get a seat in 10 minutes. We order Moukasa and Lamb, as well Santorini white wine. The lamb wasn’t tender even if well seasoned, the moukasa over seasoned, that will make you remember it all night long. Crowded up to 8:30 PM and rapid slow down after this. Service is good.

ALWAYS AMAZING! This place is a Richmond treasure. Food is delicious (and generous quantities), ambience is warm and inviting and the service is consistently excellent. The crab and avocado salad is simple and brilliant. I encouraged my guests to order dessert, and they raved about the olive oil cake and bread pudding. (a tip: the restaurant has a small grocery store across the street where you can get awesome Stella's items for take-out!)

Stella's always impresses. If I could afford it I'd eat there every week. My favorites are the Cypriot salad and the grilled octopus.

Our dinner was very good with one notable exception. The pastichio entree was dry, lifeless, and appeared defrosted from a refrigerator. I should have sent it back, but the waiter didn't appear again until dessert. The rockfish entrees were good, but $30 a pop seems like a really stiff price for a fish/vegetable mixture. I have been to Stella's many times ..........this evening was a disappointment.

I have said it before, and I will say it again..Stella's does not disappoint! On a whim I checked on open table if they had something last moment and even though it was late, I took it. Service is always top notch, specials are always superb and ambiance is amazing! My sister and I had a great time and looking forward to going back again very soon!!

It was a cold evening and the front door really makes it cold sitting at any of the front tables. The service was great and the food tasted good although my steak was woefully undercooked for medium. It was delicious as leftovers when cooked.

Following appetizers of taboule and hummus with pita and grilled octopus, we savored our entrees of grilled psari (fish), which was a whole branzino, and pastichio. The ekmek and chocolate baklave for dessert were heavenly and our waiter was excellent. Stella's does not disappoint!

We had reservations for when they opened at 5:00 pm and were immediately seated. It didn't take long for them to get crowded! Nonetheless, the staff was very engaging and attentive. Michael was our server and he was very knowledgeable about the menu! He told us that the portion sizes allowed for sharing and he wasn't kidding! We had a large, tasty Greek salad. My wife has the rockfish; she really liked it! I had the No. 5 pasta with meat sauce; there was literally enough for four! (The rest will make a substantial meal for the next couple of days). Note: If you want a quiet, intimate evening, you won't find that at Stella's. What you will get is a vibrant, family atmosphere, outstanding food, fantastic service and an overall wonderful experience! Absolutely worth it!

We have enjoyed the food several times, but sadly we will likely not return due to the volume. Another restaurant that needlessly had music so loud it requires the guests to talk over it which takes the decibel level beyond painful.

Our first time there. The food was just okay. We enjoyed the appetizers and dessert. Made the reservation for our anniversary and told them it was for a special occasion - our anniversary, but they didn’t recognize it was our anniversary or anything. I was disappointed because I did t tell my husband I told them and hoped they would do something special but apparently they don’t do anything special for occasions so not sure why I was asked when I made the reservations. Anyway we were disappointed. Go elsewhere for special occasion!

Very Good as always, food is excellent. it's almost too popular due to the tight space and they could use a larger dining room. Removing one table from the window aisle would help a lot.

6 of us had early dinner there in the back booth, which is perfect for that size party. we ordered 4 appetizers, which we shared family style and 4 entrees, also shared family style. 3 bottles of wine. as always, the sizes were ample and we were satiated when we left. for the main courses, we selected a fish, a meat platter, a Greek pasta dish and spanakopita. everything was delicious. the service was attentive and other servers helped with clearing table and delivering courses. as always, i was impressed with the quality and originality of the food. they never disappoint. you do need to make reservations well ahead of time. have been across the street to their store but have not brought home a meal from there.
