Stella's - Richmond
The food is phenomenal! The quality, the portion size and options are outstanding. The service was great, our waiter so attentive.
Awesome meal and service!
Best grilled octopus ever had!!! Meatballs delicious and all around perfect experience.
We love Stella's! The service is always good, and the food is exceptional! We never need a menu anymore as we always order the specials of the day and have never been disappointed. Always delicious!
Stellas doesn't really need another stellar review. It's always busy and reservations must be made. We enjoyed my wife's birthday celebration with wine and mezes and dessert. Our server, Connor, tuned in to our needs and paced the experience perfectly. Lamb Frites and Shrimp Ouzo were new to us and deliciously prepared.
everything was wonderful as always! we had a 645pm reservation and were not sat until 7pm. that was our only hiccup.
As delicious as I remembered it to be. We had the watermelon, heirloom tomato, feta and basil salad of the day, but then stuck with "regular" menu items for our entrees and were so happy we did. YUMMY!
We had a wonderful dinner at Stella’s! The food was outstanding and the service was first rate. It wasn’t easy to get a reservation for a Saturday night, but if you plan ahead, it can be done. The place was packed and I know why! I think it’s small size enables them to pay close attention to their customers (but not overwhelm them) and to the food. I highly recommend Stella’s if you’re looking for an authentic Greek meal with fantastic service!
Even though I explained that I must eat gluten free, the chef refused to substitute any thing else for a wheat side on the fish special. This is not a life style choice, it is a medical condition. Since most of the entrees are pasta, there are very few gluten free choices. I have been ordering the fish special at least monthly for over a year but it had never before presented a problem as the preparation included vegetables and/or rice. Stellas is very busy and we have been making frequent reservations (for 2 or with friends) weeks ahead. I am not comfortable planning any future evenings there. So sad...
Excellent meal! My mother had the chicken with potatoes and she loved it! I enjoyed the sea bass which was very fresh and good! I will definitely return!
All of our selections were outstanding! Stellas always impresses anyone that I bring there from Europe!
Stella’s was delicious as always. Love this place and their food. Highly recommend.
Ambiance was nice...setting attractive...bustling crowd...ordered a bunch of shared plates - lamb fries, spanokopita, calamari, meatballs, Saganaki and scallop special. Everything was delish. Only complaint...the portions were so large I took a lot of food home. Can't wait to go again; so much more food to try.
Loved the moussaka, fried calamari and salted caramel gelato with some kind of candy bar and honey drizzled over it. Amazing! Lovely restaurant.
Wonderful food! Our waiter, Connor, was fantastic!
Great food and great service! Can’t wait to go back again.
As a long time patron, from day one I have said, when it comes to authenticity Stella’s is as close as I can get to my little ole Greek mother’s table!”
We went for a birthday dinner with a group of 7. The food was terrific- lots of choices. We shared appetizers and they were all wonderful. The portions were very generous and the service was terrific- friendly and energetic and responsive. Can't wait to go back.
Lives up to the hype! Great food, service and ambience.
This was first time for my husband and I - a delayed celebration of our anniversary. The interior is decorated beautifully, the service was great, the food too delicious.
But we were sandwiched(?) between two two-tops and could hear conversations right and left and they could hear us. It was more difficult for us to hear each other across our table. I would say it was loud. Not the place to whisper secrets...
The prices were above our usual, even for a special night.
But I would return for the food, I'm vegetarian and the artichoke moussaka was the best ever!
We made 5pm reservations but decided to seat at the gathering table since there's more elbow room to eat. Food was very good as usual, I got the sampler plate which had gone up in price and seemed to be a little less loaded than usual but still filling. Overall a good place to eat but come early to avoid loud chatter.
Stellas hit the perfect combination of creative menu, professional service and relaxed, contemporary ambience with a nod toward Greek art/culture. This was our first time visiting the restaurant as out of towners, bringing friends with us and delighting all. That this restaurant is hard to get into, even on an early weeknight, signals its well-deserved popularity.
We had heard great things about this place, and we were not disappointed. The flaming cheese appetizer was excellent, the salads were fresh and colorful, and the entree of chicken and shrimp were expertly cooked.
Everything was incredible. Our server was awesome. Can’t say enough good things about it. Definitely looking to book another reservation very soon. If you order the saganaki, just be sure to eat it right away or it gets hard to remove from the plate
Excellent all around!!
Our favorite restaurant in Richmond -- reliably good, veg-friendly, and great ambiance.
The service was great. And food was out of this world. I will go back next time I visit.
Awesome! Best place in town without a doubt. 100% go there.
When I first visited Stella’s in December, it was wonderful, which is why I wanted to come back. This experience...not so much. Our reservation was at 6:45 and we didn’t get seated until almost 7. The email I got stated how punctual we should be, but I guess it didn’t matter once you check in with the hostess. We even arrived about 10 minutes early. The food was great, but our waiter was not very attentive. He consistently checked on parties on either side of us, but not us directly and part of our order was delivered way sooner than the rest and got cold. I believe the manager helped out with an apology and credit to our bill, which was very nice, and reheated the dish for us. All in all, I really like the place and would go back.....totally understand that everyone has a bad night
We have loved Stella’s in the past, but we were a bit disappointed this time around. We waited a long time, as did others around us, just to get our appetizer. Our food then came out about 6 minutes after the app—a huge pet peeve! Wouldn’t have minded waiting for the food had we gotten the app sooner. My moussaka tasted great, but it was luke warm at best. Tasted better reheated at home the next day!
This was my first visit to this restaurant and it will not be my last. I have eaten all over the world and I must say I could not believe I was in Richmond, VA. - this city has surged with a lot of great places to eat. My salad, soup, and main course were all distinguished in quality, taste, and presentation. Combined with great service and wonderful neighborhood feel, do not miss this place for a special dinning treat!
Everything from cocktails to bread to pasta was awesome.
Crowded. Busy. Noisy. Great food. Good portions. Great service.
Always top notch!
Stella’s is one of the 5 restaurants I would recommend to anyone in Richmond. The service is outstanding, and everything on the menu is cooked perfectly.
Conner was our waiter and made our evening so enjoyable. He knew the menu inside and out, which helped us greatly with my husbands allergy. great atmosphere and will be returning soon!
Great waiter and food. Met friends and talked all night.
The food and service were both excellent. But we and our guests were very disappointed in the excessively high noise level around our table.
Like attending an ongoing "Greek Festival".....best restaurant in Richmond on a continuing basis....
Great experience! Went for my mother’s 72nd birthday dinner. Three generations including a toddler. Staff was friendly and accommodating and food was delicious
