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.

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.

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!

My girlfriend and I celebrated her birthday here. I'd been a couple times, she had not. Everything about the dinner was great. All of the specials sounded amazing. We tried a bit of everything: flatbread, lemon/rice/egg soup, moussaka, rockfish special, craft cocktail, and gelato. We will definitely be back, if just for apps and drinks.

I love this place! The food is delicious and the service is excellent. The ambiance is elegant, but not boring. I always like to walk across the street to their little grocery store and pick up desert for later. My husband LOVES the rice pudding.

I thought the food was great, but I've got to ding them a little. My Lamb shank was cold in the center. I wasn't a problem long, my food was warmed up and I could enjoy the rest of my meal. Best noodles I've ever had and service was great.

Dinner at Stellas is always a delicious and special experience and we drive an hour to get there. We’ve always had great service and friendly staff. For some reason this time our server did not want to be there and did not want to wait on us and it was made clear. That said, we would return to Stella’s whenever we have the opportunity.

Lovely restaurant with great ambiance and service but the food doesn't measure up. Halloumi appetizer was very good but the much touted grilled octopus tasted like plain dry grilled chicken breast. Cocktails were definitely on the too sweet side. Stella's calamari was pretty good but could have had more flavor. Saganaki cheese was nothing to write home about. But the worst was the house baklava which lacked all the usual delights of traditional flaky baklava. This restaurant doesn't live up to the hype.
