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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
