Freindly little Bistro

Awesome lunch. Loved the fries tossed in vinegar and sea salt. The pimento cheeseburger on a toasted english muffin was great.

Stella' s is always a winner. Service is excellent, waiters are attentive but not overbearing. Food is excellent. Well prepared and promoting local suppliers. I had the ribeye meal on New Years Eve, melt In your mouth delicious. My husband had the grouper which was also excellently prepared. Great place to celebrate any occasion.

I have eaten at Stella's many times for dinner. The food and service are both fantastic. The specials are always great, though on the pricey side. Small groups are more enjoyable because with larger ones it is impossible to hear from one end of the table to the other. One of my favorites places to dine.

Stella's is excellent in every way except for their ability to accommodate vegans and vegetarians. We called more than a week in advance and were told that it would not be any problem to serve vegans and vegetarian members of our party. However, when we arrived we were offered only a plate of mixed vegetables. when we asked for perhaps... More

We enjoy Stella's a lot and for many reasons. Yes, the food is outstanding, this time we had the Pork Ribeye and Shrimp and Grits both excellent, but more then that it's the warmth of the staff that is managed by Julia and Jeena two of the nicest women you could ever meet. Then you have the servers and they... More

Everything from the cocktails to the sides were delicious. Hubby is quite the steak Connoisseur and he thought this was the best Ribeye he ever had. The side of grits were not your ordinary grits, and best we ever had as well. The entire staff were excellent, friendly, and welcoming. We will surely be back.

as a person with a degree in restaurant management, Stella's exemplifies textbook perfection. Service was masterful without being overbearing. Attentive at the appropriate time. Well versed in the menu. The menu is farm to table done right and done deliciously. They take advantage of local vendors changing the menu to suit the season, holiday and abundance. I can't believe this... More

I've done my fair share of traveling, thus eating at some very fine dining establishments. There are some places that doesn't even begin to touch this place in service or food quality. If you live in or around the Greenville/Spartanburg area, I promise the drive is worth every mile! Make sure you call for reservations in advance, they tend to... More

First of all, my friend and I were seated in the wine room which had the most wonderful atmosphere. Then we ordered the burger with the homemade pimento cheese on it. It was absolutely the best pimento cheese in the world except for my grandmother's. The hostess and the servers were very professional and friendly. Will definitely return for lunch... More

We had not been back for almost 4 years and it was the same as I remembered. Good but I personally like the variety that "daily specials" bring to the palate and as far as I am aware there is none of that here. Very noisy on weekends (kids). The food was very good and served at the appropriate temperature... More
