A bit more foodie than what we usually like, but the food was very nicely prepared. They have a monthly menu, so do yourself a favor and review it before you make reservations (so you know there is something that you'd like to eat). Very fresh and tastefully done.

When we first looked at the menu we thought that the menu was too strange. Our waiter explained the dishes and we ordered different ones to share. Omg! Delicious. Just the right mix of savory and heat, or mellow seasonings with richer dishes. 5 women from New York in truckee and we were all so impressed with the food and... More

I had a great dinner here, but the pairing for that evening left me with more bubbles than I would have liked, as far as creativity and well done plates, I don't think you'll get anything better or more intentional in Truckee within this range.

Menu is quite interesting. Wine list very well done and priced ok. Very high end dining for the Sierra Nevada! Service impeccable! Ambiance perfect! Prices reasonable for what you receive. We will definitely return!

I have enjoyed my dinners at Stella's and like that the choices are different, creative--fresh ingredients and fresh presentations. However, I took my older parents there, and they didn't like it as well as I did because they said there wasn't anything on the menu they recognized. The choices are more limited and not your usual presentation. No child's menu... More

Enjoyed an excellent four course menu with great Napa Valley wine. The amuse bouche offerings in between courses were superb!

Very good food, make a reservation! (No reservation=no dinner). The set meal is very good. The wine pairing costs nearly as much as the food, and while excellent, be prepared for the price.

We stayed at the Cedar House Sport Hotel with friends traveling from Sweden. Fortunately we had booked dinner for Valentine's Day when we booked our rooms a couple of months ahead. They served a prix fixe dinner with choices for each course, and we elected the wine pairing, too. It was expensive, but worth every penny! Our waiter and all... More
