Food was fantastic and very reasonably priced! Would definitely go back!!!
Fantastic as always. I was brave this time and tried the grilled octopus after having plate envy on previous occasions. It was delicious! Great cocktails, great atmosphere, great food. I wish I lived in the neighborhood and could just walk over whenever the mood strikes. But then I’d rarely be anywhere else!
We drove over an hour to go to Stella's. It was worth every minute of the drive and we look forward to our next date night there. We met friends after dinner and they also raved about Stella's and how we were lucky to have gotten a reservation - sometimes it takes weeks, and I can understand why. Everything was GREAT
Stella's was awesome! My family and I went for my birthday. My family are very picky eaters, so they were a little nervous at first when they saw the Greek words, but the server was very patient and helped them find delicious options. The portions were generous and we had a lot of leftovers. We loved it!
My only suggestion to improve the experience would be for the staff to inform diners of the price of any specials when noting the specials of the day that are not on the menu. That way there are no surprises when the bill arrives. We had an excellent meal and Stella's remains one of our favorite restaurants in Richmond.
Went for my parent's birthdays and it was fantastic as always. We enjoyed all of the appetizers, entrees and our personal favorite - ekmek for dessert. Great wine selection as well.
We loved Stellas. The food was amazing and creative, the service was great, and the drinks were delicious. It was a very memorable meal. The restaurant is hidden in a neighborhood which makes it very cute and easy to find parking. Highly, highly recommend!
This was my first dining experience at Stella's and I am certain it won't be my last. The menu choices all looked amazing but I went for the specials, an oyster appetizer and halibut entree, and both were delicious. The cocktail menu is very creative. I think Stella's is one of Richmond's premier restaurants.
Our table was ready for us tucked away in the corner which was lovely. Our waiter was great, gave us space, didn’t hover. Food was delicious as it always is! Now I need to come for brunch!!
Everything was fabulous --- however, we were seated right next to the bar, and had to hear every last minute detail of someone's unhappy life. The food was worth it though!!!
Wonderful dining experience- great menu options and specials
Stella's remains one of the very best restaurants in Richmond, Virginia. It is excellent for families who have some members who are meat eaters and some who are vegetarian or vegan.
We had a great dinner for my wife's birthday. The mussels appetizer with sausage, onions in a red sauce was the best. The crab cakes were delicious and filled with crab meat. Our server, Ben was excellent. He was very much on top of everything. We will definitely come back soon.
The one thing we can really say about Stella's is that it is really authentic Greek but with very special items on the menu. This was our second time there and everything we have tried was exceptional, from the house wine to the must have grilled octopus and the Greek coffee. Seating is quaint and the wait staff is really knowledgeable about all the menu items and specials of the day. Nice that you can order smaller plates and share, so yo can try many different items. Prices are very reasonable. The place is always busy so make reservations. We don't know how we have missed Stella's up until recently. AAA+++
Waiter was “ok”. He did not add to the experience but didn’t take from it. If I could request waiters, he would not be on my request list.
Tables are very close.
On the other hand the entree, one of the nightly special, was out of this world! For the food Stella’s deserves five stars!
Loved it! Our second visit to Stella's, from out of town. It's in a neighborhood, not off a main street, but easy to find. We're working our way thru the menu upon each visit, starting with the meze! Last time, lamb, dolmades, spanakopita, saganaki. This time, grilled octopus (large tentacles, tender & moist), tiropita, large keftedes, kalamari. Tzaziki, skordalia... very nice bread. The wines are all Greek, a fairly extensive list, bottles and by the glass--and they have an excellent red and white that are vacuum-sealed, also by the glass. Our server was cordial, efficient and very knowledgeable about the wines. The table next to us had one of the evening's specials, rockfish topped with HUGE lumps of crabmeat over roasted veg. Looked wonderful (and they confirmed). Fabulous overall, can't wait till our next visit!
Our evening turned out a real treat thanks to Stella's. We loved it all, the restaurant with its lively atmosphere, the food and the humming of good mood from other table. We will be back!
We were called the night before to confirm our reservation, which was for our wedding anniversary. We arrived to find the restaurant closed due to 1 inch of snow that had fallen during the day. A phone call or e-mail blast would have been appreciated! We ended up eating at Mama 'Zu's which was open and had a good crowd.
We live in the neighborhood but go infrequently due to difficulty getting in. The food is always exceptionally good. The salad, grilled octopus, shrimp and spanakopita were all great. Service was efficient and friendly. The place is a little loud.
The food was amazing! The place is small and busy but it is worth it. Make sure you make a reservation.
We wanted a little place to celebrate our 49th wedding anniversary and our son suggested Stellas, Since we are new to the area.. The food and service was outstanding! I just wish the noise level could have been toned down a bit, it was a little hard to hear even though we were 12 inches away from one another. But we will return!
Food and service were good but noise level way too high. Difficult to carry on conversation.
Stella's was outstanding as always. Highest recommendation!
The rockfish specaial was one of the best meals ever. Extraordinary!!
Stella’s is always crowded on a Friday night, this night was no exception. The dining experience was enjoyable as always. The waiter was attentive and on point, getting our order in as a large party was being sat. Otherwise our food would have been delayed.
I was a "first-timer". We had a party of four. Made our reservation weeks in advance in order to get in, but it was well worth the wait. They were very busy but were able to deliver great service and food! Making another reservation now!
AMAZING! Simply AMAZING
Rockfish special was really great!!!
A terrific evening beginning with cocktails, followed by wonderful food. The oysters as an appetizer were just great, followed by steak and lamb. The dessert called EMKE was light as air and very flavorful. First time visit, but won't be the last!!!
Best restaurant we've eaten at in Richmond. Will be making reservations here when people come in from out of town!
Third time great waiter Jack! Excellent food delicious
Stella’s was fantastic. We enjoyed the ambiance, the food was delicious and the portions were huge. Our favorite was dessert- the Ekmek. Will definitely return!
Had a 5:30 reservation and called to see if I could move it up to 6:00. Was informed that I could but there was another reservation at 7:30. Asked if it was reasonable to think I could be served and finished by 7:30 and the answer was yes however some folks like to extend the experience by lingering. Food- my wife ordered Moussaka and it had been overcooked to the point of being crunchy! I know we should have sent it back but did not do so. It was disappointing!
The first time we went to Stella's we sat at the bar and had the best food and service I have ever experienced in a restaurant. We were so excited we got reservations and were disappointed in the food and the service. Now back for the third time and had the same results as the second. Maybe we need to take a chance and sit at the bar! Seems the service and the food would be better. Linger, indeed!
Is our 14 years anniversary. Did nothing special for us and didn’t even ask about it. Overall just okay.
My hubby and I were in town for the VMFA's Terracotta Warrior Exhibit; we quickly scanned OpenTable for a place to get dinner and the menu wowed us. Y'all - it all tastes even better than it sounds! I can't remember the name of the mezza, but it's got meal and bechamel sauce wrapped in philo. Do it! Also, get the crab and mushroom soup. I wish we had skipped the tzatziki because it came as a side on two of the dishes we ordered. Oh well, still delicious!!!
Stella's never lets me down! As always everything was fantastic--Service, Food, Ambiance. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! I had a friend in from out of town and everything was perfect, THANK YOU!
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!
Great, authentic food. Would highly suggest the appetizer platter. The dining room was a bit loud and try to be seated in a booth away from the draft door but definitely would return again!
Stellas is the best Richmond restaurant and you won’t find better Greek food!
Incredible food, big portions, great wine pairings! One of the best restaurants in Richmond, hands down.
