Service was excellent. The restaurant's reviews are good, however to our tastes it was just so so. I had a pork tenderloin on a cauliflower/turnip puree. The puree was good, the tenderloin very average. The suggested wine pairing when consumed with the dish had a medicinal nose and taste and when drank alone was excellent ?!! The breads were very...

We have had great food here! Classic fusion of mountain wood diningroom and hipster servers! The wine list is the best in Truckee with great selections from Napa and Sonoma Counties. Try the tasting menu-you won't be disappointed. Make reservations WAY in advance. Enjoy!

I visit Truckee several times a year and had always intended to dine at Stellas, but never remembered to call for reservations until I got into town, which was always too late. Finally got dinner reservations, and was not disappointed. All 6 of us enjoyed the $69 4 course tasting menu. In order to do this your entire party must... More

Being a local here in town, as well as working for a lodging company, I knew of Stella's great reputation. When my parents were looking for a special location for our last meal together(they had been visiting me from the East Coast for a week) I knew we needed to try and get into Stella. I WAS RIGHT. All the... More

We stayed at the Cedar House and thought we would try the house restaurant and we were so very surprised how wonderful the experience was. Excellent service, creative dishes and a very Architectural environment. We would recommend the salmon ravioli, kale salad and the Branzino fish was loved by all. Currently only beer and wine are available and they did... More

Four of us had dinner Sunday night. Service was great. Not many main choices so find out if you will like any before you go. We all found good ones and we pleased. Not many good choices in Truckee. Will return.

it was the first time I ever received a credit card bill without an itemized food bill. Sure enough the charges were those of the neighboring table.
