Impressive bistro style restaurant; although cuisine not classical French. Full service bar also present. As far as food, the fried okra made a good starter. For entree, I had hanger steak and my wife had duck. Both were excellent. service was appropriately attentive. One complaint I would voice is that the chairs could have been more comfortable.

This is was the second time I’ve been, the first time was ok, this time we went for my birthday dinner and I ordered the Quail, the root vegetables were not cooked all the way, they were hard and the quail was undercooked.

We moved to Greenville from Dallas and were searching for a nice night out restaurant. While there are some very good restaurants, nothing really fit what we were looking for. Stella's does. Service was very good. Ambiance is fine, little loud but manageable. Food was great. Southern influence, but still classical. Wait staff was incredible. Water glass always filled and while constantly checking on our needs, the service was unintrusive. Price point is high for what we have seen in area, but worth every penny.

I'd recommend with some reservations. The last three times we've been here there has always been something that wasn't right for at least one of us. Latest visit: bacon that was seriously underdone--it looked like the kitchen passed it through a broiler for a second or two. So unappetizing to receive that on top of an open-faced "sandwich." For some reason the "grilled bread" was soggy. The burger itself was a huge slab of meat about 1" thick that seemed to be just a big slab of ground meat that was char grilled. There didn't seem to be any seasoning in or on the meat. The restaurant was not busy, so none of these issues should have occurred. One member of our party enjoyed here mushroom croquette and the fried okra as usual was very good. Another person enjoyed his grilled pork and polenta cake.

As I said, some let downs and some successes. Personally, we won't be returning to Stella's in the near future. Three visits and three times with at least one disappointed diner because of some basic issues. Like most restaurants I'm sure Stella's has trouble fully staffing, so I don't want to single out Stella's. Three or four years ago we visited regularly because there weren't issues.

It was a full house so it was a little noisy. We have been going here for years. Food is fantastic and service was great. Waiter made us feel like he was happy for us to be there.

We had a lovely evening with friends and the variety, preparation , and presentation of the food was nicer than many restaurants. On the downside, the noise level hinders polite conversation. It would be lovely if it were possible to buffer the noise.

Stella’s never disappoints. Everything we’ve had there has been excellent from the shrimp and grits to the monkfish or steak.

Add in the excellent service and locally farmed vegetables and it’s hard to beat.

Becky is a great server if you have the pleasure! Has a very nice smile 😀 and very attentive but not standing over us like some servers do ! I have never been to Stallas on a Monday, but it was quite busy ! I always love the food and that makes the drive from Laurens worth the trip

Stella’s has great food, but probably a bit overpriced for what you get. Portion sizes are small. The restaurant is cold, dark, and noisy. I would suggest sitting outside. I’d go here again, but not on my top shelf list
