Our first experience here was amazing. The ambience makes you feel like you are in Greece, and the service is phenomenal. Our waiter was Travis, and he made us feel so welcome. Definitely looking forward to our next trip back.

Always a good place for authentic Greek food. They even carry Plomari OUZO (very authentic for ouzo coniseuers).

Stella's has been the gold standard of the RVA culinary scene for a long time, and that's likely to remain the case for quite a bit longer. I've never had anything but the most delightful meals and service here. I dreamt about their grilled octopus last night. I could eat their lamb frites for breakfast, lunch and dinner for a month without complaint. I'd ask for the artichoke moussaka if I was on death row and needed a last meal. Etcetera, etcetera -- you get the gist.

This was my second time dining at Stella’s and it was just as good as I remembered from 6 or 7 years ago. Our party (4) had 3 appetizers (meatballs, grilled octopus, sagnaki w mushrooms). The grilled octopus was the star! Can’t wait to have that again. The late summer salad, was a special - the table split - had shaved Brussels sprouts, pecans, bacon, dried cherries and dressing it was a perfect combination that could be a main or prefect lunch. We also had the mixed meat and the rock fish specials. Other dishes ordered were the Pikelia the tasting sample and moussaka. All very good. I can’t wait to go back.

My waiter, Ben, was extremely rude and nonchalant as he clearly had to force himself to help me. After delivering my entree (that was burned), Ben did not check on me at all. However, he frequently checked in with the 2 women to my right and also helped out with a table that wasn’t his to my left. Ben’s service was so bad that I had to ask the hostess for help. I visited Stella’s based on a recommendation, and I will never return. Needless to say, I absolutely did not leave Ben a tip.

Don’t believe the hype.

Can't deny the food was 10/10... But damn the server we had that night must be super unsatisfied with his life because he acted miserable from start to finish. Listening to him read off the daily specials was almost painful, he was impatient and moody, it became comical by the end of the night because he turned on full sass. Luckily we didn't even have to ask for the check because he slapped it down on the table before we were even finished eating... Dropped it back off after paying without saying a word. Hope the 30% tip warmed his heart a little, because I get it dude, Ive been in the service industry since I was in highschool and I hate my life too.

We came to Stellas to celebrate a birthday as it’s one of our favorite restaurants. As usual, the food was delicious and presented beautifully. The service was amazing. Everyone is always so nice and accommodating. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and is decorated beautifully. A favorite appetizer are the dolmades, a favorite entree is the pasticchio and a favorite side is the yahni. I also tried Yia Yia’s Skillet for the first time and it was delicious! The cocktails are also really good and unique. For a nice restaurant you still feel like you are welcome. I love Stellas and will be back soon!
