This was my favorite dining experience. We loved it!!!!
My husband and I had been talking about trying Stella's for months. We went last Friday and were thoroughly disappointed. The atmosphere was "ok", but the noise level of this restaurant was unpleasant. Sitting side by side, we had to lean in to hear one another speak. After placing our order, we waited nearly an hour for our food (at 9pm, we assumed the rush was over). Our glasses went dry and the food was nothing special in our opinion.
Stella's is a predictably excellent dining experience. The only distraction is that it can get a bit noisy, however, I would not let that keep me from going to dinner there.
The staff is knowledgeable of both the food and wine and the bar staff is very friendly and most attentive.
We always look forward to the next time.
Amazing!!!! Every time, every order, every waiter!!! Absolutely amazing!!!
Everything was awesome! The food was divine! I had the Wreckfish and a side or brussel sprouts which were heavenly! Service was great everything was wonderful!
Wow, our first visit ever to Stella's. My wife and I will certainly return and try it for dinner!
Our server, Zach, was spot on with his suggestions for both food an drinks. He made our first visit memorable and wanting to return
We made the reservation for Restaurant week. I was brought the wrong entre'. They had a plate with pork to place in front of me. The plate I ordered was to have been trout with Forbidden rice, however, it was plain white rice. I asked why the dish was not as described and was told that they "ran out" of the forbidden rice. It seems that you would have the ingredients to prepare your only 2 entres' offered for Restaurant week specials. I was never offered a second glass of wine. My husband ordered coffee with desert but was almost finished when I flagged down the waiter and asked again for it. Much apologies were offered that night because much was wrong. The lady that I asked about the rice said they would adjust our bill only to return and say the manager would not allow it. I never asked that the bill be adjusted, but don't offer something again that you cannot provide. We were given some kind of coupon to use in the future but don't think we will be returning.
Awesome special occasion dinner. Our dinner was great. The shrimp bisque was great. Our ribeye special was terrific and cooked perfectly with lots of flavor. Have not been to Stella's in a while but will make sure it is not long before our next visit. Our server was also excellent and very knowledgeable. Thanks for a great date night.
This is a place to visit. Dinner was just wonderful. The short ribs were perfectly cook and the tile fish on sweet potato risotto was so good. Mike our waiter made the night so fun. Will be returning.
You need a reservation. My wife and I had one, but the table we were given was wedged between other tables so tight that each of us was closer to strangers than to each other. Normal conversation was impossible. The menu seems to be on that you would have to become familiar with. I ordered "Angus boneless beef ribs", which where flavorful, but very stringy. I am a big beef eater, but I didn't finish those. We were literally given one slice of bread to share while we waited for our order. That seemed odd. My wife ordered a salad that was more ordinary than you would expect from pizza hut.
I wish I could think of some nicer things to say.
Stella's has been my Go-To destination for celebrations and just for casual drop-ins for years now. I know many of the staff by name, and more importantly, even though I don't come by that often, they know ME by name or sight. The service is impeccable and the food is DEEEVINE!
It just so happens that the best restaurant in Greenville ... is actually in Simpsonville. So there!
Great food, great service, knowledgeable staff, great wine selection
Stella's is one of the best restaurants in the Greenville area. Wonderful food. It was a little loud for our last visit. The only thing that would make Stella's better is if they were open for Sunday Brunch!!!
Having just moved from Ohio we were so happy to come across Stella's, our new favorite local spot!
We had dinner last Saturday and we ordered the Restaurant week's menu. There were 2 options for appetizer and for the entree and one desert. We ordered all the dishes between the two and everything was excellent!
Five years ago when I first went to Stella's it was great. It has become less "palatable" in the last two years. My food was cold when it came to the table and not much better when it returned. The menu has suffered and the gluten free craze has lessened the taste of the food.
We love Stella's. It is our favorite Greenville restaurant for food, friendly staff and owners, and service. We eat here often and have always had a great experience.
Have eaten here many times. It is always consistent in the quality of the food and their food selection . They have a great staff of employees.
As Always the food and service was excellent! We just love this place. We had reservations at 7pm and arrived 15 minutes early but were promptly seated. I had the rabbit and quail dish. It was excellent. I remember as a child going to my grandmother's restaurant on Christmas Day to eat Quail. I cannot say how many wonderful memories this brought back. The Restaurant was quite full by the time we left but the noise level never became too high. We ordered the Pimento Cheese Appetizer then we order 1 to take home after our meal. The bottle of Shug Chardonnay was very good with both our entrees ! WE WILL BE BACK Happy New Year
As always the food and service was incredible. Some people thing Stella's is pricy, but for the great service and outstanding food we find it priced just right. If you want to relax and enjoy some of the best in the Upstate, then Stella's is for you.
Stella's Southern Bistro is run smoothly both in the front of house and the kitchen. The menu continues to promise the very best of local ingredients "whipped together" by the ever-imaginative chef.
Stella's staff always treats my very elderly father with care and respect. Special accommodations for his reduced vision and hearing make our dining experience a particularly fine family occasion. The food always delights us, and we especially like that the lunch menu reflects the same excellent creativity as the dinner menu. Stella's ranks at the top of our preferred restaurants list!
We can't think of anything to say that we haven't already said before. The food is great! The staff are most welcoming and the service is everything we'd expect.
We are frequent flyers. If date night is an option, it's usually Stella's. Great service and great food. Never any regret. Highly recommend.
The food and service was great. Our waiter was very pleasant and informative. It wasn't toooo bad and certainly not enough to keep me from coming back BUT, it was pretty loud.
Service was outstanding, despite being pretty much full. Interesting and diverse selection of options.
This will have been our 3rd time at Stella's. We tried it initially on a whim and fell in love with the place. Most recently we took my inlaws to try it out. Though less romantic with them crashing our date night, equally as enjoyable for an adult family setting.
The food highlights for me (as always) are the fried green tomatoes, the fried okra, and the duck in ANY form.
If you never have, you MUST try this place. Worth the trip, every time!
Variety of menu items
We love Stellas go as often as we can. Great food wonderful staff would highly recommend.
It never disappoints
We have been here before and when our travels got us within striking distance we jumped at the opportunity. As usual everything was excellent.
Always a delicious meal and great service at Stella's! The fried okra is a must have appetizer.
PROS - FRIENDLY, EFFICIENT STAFF. NICE ATMOSPHERE.
CONS- LIMITED MENU , ENTREES COME WITH SET SIDE ITEMS - NO CHOICE.
Stella's is a very nice upscale restaurant right in Simpsonville. The Southern cuisine is excellent, well-prepared with vibrant flavors. The service is friendly and knowledgeable and the atmosphere is cozy - not overwhelming or too loud. Stella's is a great alternative to fine dining in downtown Greenville.
Took a corporate team to lunch just to unwind a bit and discuss some business topics in a more informal setting. The venue was perfect, food was great, and it was fairly quiet so we had no problem discussing some work topics over dessert. We've visited this restaurant three times for work lunches and we've always been impressed!
Couldn't have asked for a better night. Great food, awesome service.
Amazing food and service!!!
We love going to Stella's and seeing the samd staff faces. They are friendly and provide excellent service. The food is fabulous. Each entree we have tried surpasses our expectations. We love thier wines and have chosen a favorite that they shared with us the best place to buy for home.
We always take our out of town guests to Stellas to show off a great restaurant in the neighborhood.
We love Stella's Southern Bistro. It's always a wonderful treat. The service and the creative dishes are terrific. It's the perfect place to celebrate any event. We have been there many times in the past. With luck, we will be there many times in the future.
We go to Stella anytime we are on the SE side of Greenville. always very good and great service.
We had another delicious dinner at Stella's. Our server, Michelle, was very nice and attentive. I opted for their shrimp and grits and my husband had their bone-in pork chop. Both meals were very good. I highly recommend Stella's for both lunch and dinner.
