Tasty Late Lunch

My friend and I enjoyed sampling a variety of Meze with a large salad. We shared everything and were very glad we found Stella's. Service was excellent but not intrusive. Stella's is located in a quiet residential neighborhood but is very accessible off I-95.

I dined at Stella's with a friend in celebration of her birthday on a very busy Friday evening. Our reservations made weeks ahead of time were instantly honored and we were shown to a table within minutes of arriving. What followed was excellent attentive service and scrumptious food and j

I've visited Stella's before for dinner and decided to try it for Sunday brunch. Stella's did not disappoint! I ordered the crab Benedict which came with Grecian hash potatoes and a Bellini. The portion was so large that I could not finish everything!

I was delighted with the food from Stella's Greek restaurant. We ordered take out, and the food was ready as promised and still hot when we got it home. My husband's family is Greek, so I know my Tiropita and Pastichio! The preparation of the food was marvelous, and every last bite of everything we ordered was a delight. Honestly,... More

I'm not a big fan of Greek food in general, but Stella's is the exception. The food is so well prepared that one cannot help but eat a bit too much. Service is excellent also. It can be difficult to get reservations, but it is well worth it.

Stella's has become our favorite place in Richmond. This is a place to experience, not simply go for a meal. The ambience is delightful, service is attentive and spot-on, and the food is absolutely amazing. Come with friends and plan on sharing. Superb.

We visited Stella's on a Monday nite and it was busy when we arrived although we were able to get a table. Waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu and made a few recommendations. Bar service was quick. We were a party of 4 and ordered mostly appetizers to share. The sautéed calamari was out of this world along with... More

A very popular restaurant and almost impossible to get into in the evening, we had lunch and it was very good. I had the lamb and it was enough for two! It's justifiably famous.
