Relaxing place to eat, drink, and people-watch

We ate lunch here a couple of times. It's typical French-cafe fare: salads and sandwiches. Both of my meals were very good, and my dining partners liked their meals too. The Nicoise Salad is very good and quite filling.

Always enjoy the classic bistro fare at Cafe Stella as well as the unique and charming atmosphere of the dining room next to the bar. Daily items are usually good additions to the regular menu. Went on short notice last night and managed to get a reservation. Excellent frisee salad with perfectly poached egg, flavorfull cavatelli with mushroom ragout, classic... More

Went with friends --like the ambience and love the bar--have never thought the food was exceptional until this last meal--the steak frites was insane. Best I have ever had I think. Really...loved it. Sommelier also hooked us up with a nice bordeaux for $85 that had some bottle age and was ready to drink. The deserts were also very good.... More

The steak au poivre was excellent. The sauce soaked pomme frites were perfectly salty. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the halibut and the wine suggestion was dead on. Can't say enough about this restaurant.

This was my first trip to LA. I had been craving a steak all week, and Cafe Stella really hit the spot. Steak and fries, what's not to like? Sometimes when I go to places like this, I have to have a burrito after my meal to fill me up. Not so here. Nice cut of steak filled me up... More

Cafe Stella is one of my favorite spots to slowly sip coffee or tea in the late mornings or evening. It's a place you go with a girlfriend to catch up on life or with your partner but I've seen celebrities there on business dates too. Everything on the select menu is worth trying. I have liked the blue cheese... More

Went with friends and have not been here in years. There is now a great bar up front with state of the art mixologists working (bartenders) and the restaurant is still very good with a great atmosphere. We started with escargots and beef tartare and for dinner had steak frites and sole meuniere. Very traditional and good french bistro fare.... More

For tourists and Angelinos, this is a fabulous place and I can't say enough about it. Great location as it captures the spirit of Silverlake today. Three different areas within the restaurant (inside front for quiet, front space for groovy lounge and music and in between for outdoor dining). Cafe Stella captures the assets of LA living as in the... More

It was wonderful to be seated in an attractive, only moderately noisy restaurant with nice service, and served an overall delicious meal with generous, but not huge portions. (So many restaurants these days are noisy and throw the food down on your table -- there is often no 'service' any more -- but not Cafe Stella.) We dined at Cafe... More
