Stella’s is the best establishment in the Greenville area serving local food with a southern flare. My wife and I are always pleased. If there is ever a mishap in service it is always graciously apologized for and promptly remedied. The menu is short but always being tweaked to suit the local provisions. I hope to be able to patronize for many years to come.

Stella's has been a favorite for years and never disappoints. We literally said tonight, "Can you even have a bad meal here?!" Everything is delicious, perfectly timed, the best waitstaff. Hands down. Thank you for another great evening, Stella's. We'll be back soon!

I should preface that Stella's is (well, maybe was) one of our favorite restaurants and we have dined there many times and have always enjoyed it- that is up until our last two visits one in January 2019 and then this one in February 2019. We thought the first not-so-good visit (for our Anniversary) was just an off night and perhaps wasn't as good because they were crowded for Restaurant Week. On that visit our food was severely under-seasoned and was very bland (this is not typical of this restaurant) and that was in addition to the very loud crowd and busy waitstaff that unfortunately diminished both the service and the dining experience. This second visit was on a much quieter night (weekday) and we wanted to bring my parents who were visiting to our favorite restaurant. Unfortunately it did not deliver, the soup I was served tasted so off (spoiled, rancid, something) I could not eat it. The server inquired and I politely responded that it was not to my taste and she seemed to agree, which I thought was odd. Our salads and other appetizers were fine, but not as good as I have had the same dishes there before. Three of us ordered different fish specials and the servings were smaller than I have been served for Lunch at Stella's previously. The accompanying sides were just ok and truthfully for the price we were kind of disappointed. Our Server was otherwise attentive and did a very good job, so I do not wish to fault her. We may try again but we will give it a little bit to see if perhaps they have changed chefs or something. I really hate to be so critical of one of my favorite spots but they seem to be slipping a little bit.

My wife and I have been customers of Stella's since there opening 10 plus years ago. The job that Chef Jason, Wife Julia, and their loyal staff do, is some of the greatest service you can get anywhere,bar non. We have never, had anything but wonderful experiences there, and will continue to go there whether it be for just cocktails and app. or a wonderful meal. With the service they provide, I see them being there for years to come. Eddie and Kathy Ferrando Clark.

Even though it was NYE (crazy evening) the staff was great, extremely communicative and accommodating when they were running slightly behind schedule. The food was excellent as always. Even when they're very busy and completely booked, the staff always keeps their cool and treats you like family. You cannot go wrong dining here - for any occasion!

Celebrated the new year a couple of days early with my wife. We moved to Simpsonville from Chicago just over a year ago. We’ve dined at a number of restaurants locally and in the Greenville area, some good, some less good (and some not good at all :-) Stella’s was the best - wonderful food, nice ambiance, great service, and very reasonably priced including their wine selection. Farm to table from (mostly) local producers. Fabulous! Thank you to the proprietor and staff!

Been to Stella’s many times over the years, and this was honestly the first time we’ve left disappointed. Food was good as always, however our service was slow, nearly nonexistent. Took nearly 45 mins to take our entree order, then after our entrees were delivered, our server disappeared behind the bar and we did not see him for over an hour. Very frustrating...
