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.

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...

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.

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.

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

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!
