At 5'9 135 I am not a large portion person, but these were the smallest dishes I have seen. Nothing particularly outstanding about the cuisine. You can tell the chef is trying but it does not work. My swordfish was cold. The service however, was great. Service outshines the food.

If you are a foodie that enjoy fine dining, excellent service, a fantastic wine list and do not mind to splurge a little bit on yourself- Stella! is the place to go. My wife and I tried 3 of the 2013 Zagat top 10 NOLA restaurants (blog.zagat.com/2013/01/10-best-restaurants-in-new-orleans.html‎) and this was the best! We went for the Chef's Four Course Prix...

Pros: ...Located in a great city Cons: Overwrought courses, Unpracticed waitstaff, Price does not match product Seven course tasting with wine pairing and caviar supplement - While the basic ingredients were fresh and appealing, the chef could not control his urge to add excesses such as foams, bubbles, drizzles, and more to each dish. Unfortunately, the caviar supplement was casually... More

The staff was exception, except for the guy when we showed up 10 minutes early for or reservation. Our reservation was for 5:30, like most normal people we arrived ten minutes early, we were told, very rudely, we aren't open yet you can go to the bar next door to wait. The bartender next door was awesome btw! Got our... More

I was on the fence about eating here. I had been reading reviews and considering making reservations for our last two trips, but the timing wasn't right. Last Thursday night could not have been more perfect. We went with friends and had the best time. The restaurant was smaller and more intimate than I was expecting. It was very quiet... More

The menu is interesting, but there was nothing on it that I couldn't have done without. The service was very good until dessert, at which time it waned significantly. The meal was rich, especially the cauliflower veloute, and I couldn't finish all the courses. I asked to take home the dessert but couldn't get the wait staff to bring me... More

Stella! we found just walking down the street in the French Quarter. We called, made some inquiries about eliminating pork and shellfish from our entrées, and made a reservation. We had high expectations and we were quite pleased. We tried the four-course prix-fixe menu and we were rewarded with excellent dishes. We elected to include the wine-pairing which was most... More

This was our second visit to Stella and we will definitely come back every time we are in new orleans. My husband had the wine pairing and when I asked about the availability of other wines since the by the glass offering was small, but I did not want a pairing, I described what I typically like and was recommended...

I ate there on a Wednesday night, during a week I stayed in New Orleans when I attempted to schedule a good to great culinary experience on each night of my stay. I read an online review of Stella! early in my stay and decided to give it a try. To make things easy - if perhaps also pricey -... More
