Taste of Greece in Richmond

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.

Stella's is the most amazing place for me. It was open in Richmond and closed at one point around 2004-2005 and reopened a few years ago in a different location, much to the happiness of all Richmonders. It takes forever to get a table here for a reason, the food and atmosphere are amazing, as is the service. I'm Greek,... More

Reservations are tough to get so we booked about two months out for a Saturday night dinner (our first visit to Stella's). Given all the positive reviews and the "hype" we looked forward to our first visit with great anticipation and expectations. First impressions: nice and light décor and humming ambience. Greeted promptly by an efficient (all business) wait person... More

Love the atmosphere of this place. I came here a few weeks ago for a business lunch and the service was 5 stars, as was the food. I highly recommend the lamb frites, meatballs and the spanakopita. Great Richmond find!

Unless you planned way ahead, arrive at opening time to get a seat at the bar or at the communal table. They fill up quickly. Ambiance is great, food terrific, service friendly and hospitable. Richmond closes early, so you can also get seats after the first seating crowd is finished. We think eating at the bar is the most fun.

We are so grateful for the accuracy of the TripAdvisor reviews about Stella's! This was our first stop in Richmond in many years, & could not have worked out better. The hostess & servers were charming and very professional. We had recently spent 2 weeks in Greece, so we had our taste buds set for the correct flavors. The food... More

There are a number of good Greek restaurants in Richmond and Stellas is by far the best. I have a golfing friend who invited us. We sat at the large table in the middle of he restaurant which will accommodate 20 people. Other guests came and went. We had six in our party and passed around lots of appetizers. They... More

Make your reservations early, because they seem to fill up every night. Fantastic Greek and Mediterranean cuisine.
