So glad to revisit this great French bistro in Silverlake

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... read 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

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

When I think of French food hearty does not typically come to mind, dainty, rich, flavorful...but rarely "hearty". I had the BLT and added avocado and I must say it was absolutely delicious! The perfect selection after a disco dancing night! BUT don't leave after eating...head across the way to the ever so quaint bar area for craft cocktails. I... More

A little unusual, a little hip, great cocktails, exceptional service and delicious food... The only reason I need say a word more is that I must use up my 100 characters! A top recommendation from me. Love it.

If you're interested in watching hipsters, which I know I am, then Cafe Stella is a great place to do it. It's got a great little bar, a nice outdoor patio, an indoor patio and a cool indoor bistro area. It's very representative of Silverlake, without the obnoxiousness of some of the spots down the road. We popped in for... More

Did not have the privilege of dining a la francais at the bistro BUT did experience the attached BAR STELLA on a Saturday night. Ambiance abounds due to soft yellow candle lit bar surface and entertainment abounds due to the 3/4 white-coated professional ( and i do mean pros) bar tends. Luxurious specialty cocktails shaken or stirred a deux with... More

What a fabulous French bistro in the heart of Silverlake! This is the real deal....mussels, escargot, steak frittes, on and on....I loved navigating my way through the whole place to be brought to the teeny, intimate space in the back of the place, with booths and bar full of local characters. This seems to be a very "insider" place for... More
