Dining with friends

We dined at Stella's during restaurant week and was a very fortunate to taste their special cuisines! Every course was excellent! Swordfish & halibut were wonderful. Our friends chose paella which was huge, they loved & had some to take home. One downside was noise level, loud.

We have been here several times and have always been pleased with the food and service. The Fish is amazing and the preparation is superb. The best Bloody Mary ever.

Stella's is a three level "cafe" in Calhoun Square. It has a nice rooftop level with pretty, uptown views. The two inside levels are casual and comfortable with classic seafood house ambiance, long tables and high stools. Expansive and excellent menu. Drinks are great too. Wonderful!

Stella's is a great place for seafood in the Twin Cities. The prices are good and there are a lot of tummy choices. On Sunday's after 4 they do a very good whole Maine lobster deal for $19.99 that is terrific. Try the corn bread for a starter. We also love the lobster roll and the pasta entrees. We also... More

My family and I were hungry for lunch, it was getting later in the afternoon, and we stumbled upon this place. We weren't disappointed. We all liked our food and it was served up quick. Cool, laid back atmosphere. Friendly waitress. We got our fill and then went to explore a nearby book store.

We ate on the roof and had an exceptional time. If you make reservations, ask to be seated in Noah's section. He is a great waiter with a great personality. His recommendations were appreciated. We cannot say enough about him. He was recommended to us by a family member.

We enjoyed rooftop dining with out of town family. Rain hit as we arrived - we chose to wait it out and take shelter at the bar. It was definitely worth the wait! Each of us chose a different entree to share. The food was EXCELLENT and the service superior. Be sure to ask for NOAH. He was friendly, knowledgeable,... More

What an enjoyable roof top patio! Please try the London Mule! Noah (our server) was so much fun and very helpful in our drink selections. I would recommend trying the Gorgonzola table bread. Give Stella's a chance!

Except for the many stairs (take the elevator if you don't want a workout) to the roof our time and meal was excellent. Fish and Chips and Seabass meet both our expectations. Our Server was very cool,professional, informed, and friendly. The summer evening was extraordinary. We will return.
