Just stopped in late Sunday afternoon for a couple of drinks. Gorgeous location/view. Will have to do this again in the summer evening to get the full effect of the views. Had a signature drink - the Stilleto. It was good, but expensive. Attentive server. The elevator to the rooftop is very slow and the bathrooms are on a different... More

After siting on patio during lunch, server did not show up for long time. after we placed our order it took and hour!!! for food to arrive. I do not know any foods, especially fish that needs to be prepared that long! Food is very expensive for what you get, and not very good. Tin Fish on Calhoon has much... More

This was one of the stops on my first trip to Minneapolis visiting my daughter. Overall, the food was very good and the portions were VERY large. Across the table we had raw oysters, fried Walleye, and a very large and delicious sushi roll. We shared some desserts and the cheesecake was divine! Their selection of cocktails was also very...

My husband and I were in Minneapolis visiting our daughter and family. They have not lived here long so had not ever dined here before now. We decided on rooftop seating which was spectacular. Looking at the plates on the table next to ours, the dishes looked so good we decided to order the same, Parmesan Grilled Walleye on potatoes.... More

My husband and I went to Stellas for the first time. We both ordered the walleye. I had mine breaded and his was blackened. WE both loved the dinner. The portions were wonderful. I am not a big eater, but it was so good I finished the entire fish. I will definitely return and try something else on the menu.

We were taken to our table and left for over 10 minutes before anyone came over to us. After that it was all good, food was great, service was good, we went up onto the patio and the sun had gone down but it was really nice and past the rush.

First time we went to Stella was when we got our Groupon for Lobster Bake 2-3yrs ago. And we're in love. Where else can you get 4-course SEAFOOD meal with wine for $69? On the first year of the Lobster Bake, We probably went 2-3 times and bought one for my sister in law (unfortunately, we found out later on... More

We visited the top deck, which was reserved for our group event. IT. WAS. FABULOUS! The service was outstanding and the views of the city were incomparable. The weather actually cooperated- we had one of the most enjoyable early evenings in recent memory. If you're looking for something special for a friend or family member, a party on the top... More

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and what a great place to celebrate. We were on the rooftop on a gorgeous night. The rooftop is awesome for a date night! We had the lobster bake which was good but not great. However, the lobster bisque was fantastic! Our waiter was great. Try happy hour before you go to the rooftop... More
