Can't beat the rooftop patio!

Anyplace with a view like this restaurant has is worth the visit. I'm a vegetarian so there's not a lot I can eat here but I do like the salad with beets chased with a beer overlooking Uptown.

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.

Been to Stella's on several occasions and can't say enough about the good food. Love the atmosphere but especially enjoy the rooftop patio when the weather permits. Recently there with several friends and family members. Amy was our server. Her smile and efficient manner made the experience even more enjoyable.

Stella's was one of the first restaurants I visited in the Minneapolis area. Truthfully, it was one of my reasons to keep coming back! I'm from California and the East Coast, so I would consider myself to be pretty adept at determining good and quality seafood with rich flavor, and not what I tend to see a lot in other... More

First of all, I will say that I have a lot of sentimental value with this place as it is where my husband and I had our first date. That being said though, we have extremely high expectations for it and love to bring people here when they come to town to visit us. Whether you sit inside or out... More

Are dinner here with my wife and my cousin and his wife last night and thoroughly enjoyed this place. We started with 2 sushi rolls which were very tasty. I highly recommend the lobster roll as it was full of lobster and was the best I've had. The restaurant is located in a trendy vibrant neighborhood and offers plenty of... More
