Stella's is undoubtedly the best Greek food I've eaten - ok close 2nd next to a fish place on Ditmars in Queens. It is more than Greek - you just have to plan - get a reservation and go. Sick? Eat the lemon - chicken - rice soup. Starving? Eat the lamb burger. Health kick? Eat the monstrous salads. Crave... More

Wow , my friend and I dined at Stella's the other night, their was a 15-20 minute wait for a table so we decided to dine seated at the bar .The bartenders at Stella's are to be commended on their fast and friendly service. I ordered the Hummus as an appetizer which was incredible and the Pan seared salmon as... More

This is the best Greek restaurant around. The food is authentic - makes me feel like I am in an outdoor cafe in Greece rather than here in Virginia. I have never had anything that was not delicious. Try the lamb burgers with the lima bean side. The lunch portion of salmon is what is served for dinner elsewhere -... More

Stella is the best Cook in Richmond! The Greek food is authentic but her "regular" food is just as amazing. The location is tucked away in a quaint little pocket of the Near West End. I gave it a "5" because I couldn't rate it any higher.

Went for a sunday brunch with a large group. The food is excellent and the service was comparable to a high end restaurant. Including appetizers and drinks for 7 people, I only spent about $120. I would certainly go back!

Small, intimate restaurant with lovely decor. Sampled various entrees (off the plates of my family) and everything was in incredible. The only " disappointment " was that my pasta was swimming in olive oil. I drained off approx. 1/4 cup off the pasta before I could eat it. The wine suggestions were spot on. The service was exceptional. This could... More

I've followed Stella's through three different locations in Richmond. Stella's newest location is tastefully decorated and always crowded. Reservations several days in advance are a must and even then it's tough. They will try to seat walk-ins at the bar or their communal table, but don't count on it. My wife and I and friends made dinner reservations days in... More

I have to start with Mimosas... They were beyond incredible! We had a group of 10 for brunch, the staff at Stella's had everything set up for us ahead of time. The menu had some amazing options! Most of the table ordered the Spartan Grilled Cheese I have to say I have never seen one this huge! Others ordered Grilled... More

Truly enjoyed this American-Greek restaurant. In town from Montreal for a NASCAR race and had a great Saturday night dinner at Stella's. This restaurant had been recommended by friends who had eaten a couple of weeks before. Innovative menu, great friendly service, complete with a unique atmosphere.
