Arrived several minutes late, had 1:50 to eat and get to a concert. Explained situation to our waiter, he said we can do that. Placed our order immediately, returned to table and said our orders were being expedited. Meals arrived less than 10 minutes later, hot and delicious. I ordered the Monkfish, haven't had it in years, and never well prepared. Wife ordered Shrimp & Grits, after two bites she said this is what I want Shrimp and Grits to taste like. My Monkfish was excellent as well, really enjoyed.

We had a wonderful lunch at Stella’s! Very fresh and delicious. The flavors were on point. We also loved how they showed were everything was locally sourced from. The staff was so nice and courteous. We will definitely be back next time we’re in the area!

Another excellent lunch at Stella's Bistro. Today it was not so busy, therefore, quiet and more intimate. Service is always friendly and helpful. The lunch specials are varied, reflect seasonal availability and are tasty. A favorite and hope to return regularly.

Excellent Southern food with local ingredients. The service was amazing with our waiter, Brent, able to answer all the questions we had. The menu was fairly limited, but they only use the freshest of local ingredients, which makes the food AMAZING! We love having this gem in Simpsonville.

We dined there Saturday night and everybody's food was upscale in quality, presentation was beautiful and the food was delicious. Ambiance could be improved by better (lower) lighting. It's a little too bright in the restaurant to call it romantic. Also it's very loud but being a smaller restaurant, is to be expected. I would love to see them open up the back outside area (if possible) to allow for more alfresco dining. Add heat lamps for the fall etc.. There are some tables on the front of the restaurant outside but they face the parking lot so they're not so desirable. Try the NY strip steak, the pork chop and the Butter Pecan bread pudding is to die for!

Amazing all-around experience. Flavorful carpaccio and pork belly appetizers. Shrimp and grits are the best out of several restaurants in the area, especially with the tomato broth. NY strip executed correctly, however the spinach souffle was dense and the texture unusual. Lemon blueberry bar for dessert was great. Thanks so much for the great experience.

The food was great as always and the service was stellar. My only food compliant is that the key lime creams brûlée custard was not well set up like a normal brûlée- it was more like the consistency of yogurt. Also, we were seated at a cramped two top in a 20% seated dining room with many unseated 4 tops around us at 6p on a Tuesday night (slowest night of the week for most restaurants.)

The ambiance was very nice - a special place to have lunch. My friend got the chicken salad and was very happy. I ordered a hamburger with pimento cheese and applewood bacon. The hamburger was very overcooked - that might be my fault as I ordered it with "no pink". However, it was so SALTY, I could barely stand to eat it. I left about 1/3 of it which felt sad for a $12 hamburger. I was having a great conversation with my out of town friend, so didn't take the initiative to complain which I now regret. (I would have if I'd been with my husband!) Neither the waiter nor the manager asked me how my food was, or I would have told them. I so wish I'd ordered the special of the day - Chicken Pot Pie. I think my lesson learned is not to order hamburgers at restaurants! Too chancy!

Stella's is our favorite restaurant in the area. We have going there for almost 10 years, and have always been satisfied with our meals and the staff!
The sources of the food is shown and most are local. The food is very craftly prepared and presented. We have never felt rushed.
We highly recommend Stella's Bistro!

For an delicious and nice dinner out in southern Greenville, this is THE place to go. Excellent service plus the freshest foods available sourced locally and by season - so the menu changes accordingly. Never had a bad experience at Stella’s.

The establishment was pleasant, the servers/hostess were welcoming. My friend raves about it he salad/vegetables were perfectly done. My short rib meal tasted lovely. I ordered asparagus a la carte, it was fine. All was again, pleasant. Jere is the issue; it was a fortune!!!
I had one glass of Chardonnay, hubby had no
alcohol. My husband had a pork chop meal. We split a very surprisingly tiny dessert. $120.00 before tip??! Never again. We knew it was going to be pricey, but... It’s not as though there was a
unique view, or an historic building. We’ll be dining elsewhere in the future.

I looked forward to trying Stella's based off reviews on here but I just don't see the high ratings. Food was so salty I regret not sending it back. I was up charged $3 for substituting mac n cheese for grits even though both are standard side items priced the same. Not to mention no upcharge was mentioned by the waiter. Service was good overall but I still ran out of tea. The resturant is very small and very loud. Obviously a lot of people like this resturant but I will not be back.
