Multiple visits, but this was the final one. First, if it is cold out insist you not be seated by the front window, the ladies in our group had to put their coats on. Second, do NOT accept the far left table by the window, too crowded, too noisy, too cold. If you enjoy almost shouting to each other, then... More

My date and I had no reservations (not good - you should call ahead here!) - I wanted this to be special so I arrived at 4:45 knowing that a few tables would be left for walk-ins and I was right - Thanks Ben !. So, let me set the atmosphere for you : it's vibrant, there's an old timey... More

Before we even sat down at Stella's, we were already trying to figure out an excuse to visit Richmond again so we could come back. The staff was so friendly and accommodating, even though it was Saturday night and they were slammed. We sat down after about an hours's wait (be sure to make reservations!) and it was confirmed: the... More

This is a nice, open, and bright restaurant, made to look like you are eating in someone's kitchen, in a sense. The food selection offers typical Greek fare, but you can also get grilled cheese. The roasted beets are delicious, try them even if you don't think you like beets! They do close after lunch and before dinner, so try... More

A really neat rustic Greek restaurant nestled in west end residential neighborhood. The meals were quite authentic and very tasty. We only had lunch but it seemed fairly reasonable. The lima bean salad with feta and dill was phenomenal, who knew lima beans could taste so good! The sliced lamb gyro was good however there was a bit more fat... More

Four of us ate at Stella's a week ago and couldn't have enjoyed it more. The Greek salad easily served all of us - feta cheese was so fresh and great tasting. I had the salmon with a side of tiropita which made for a wonderful meal. Others had the Stella's steak with crabmeat and the Greek sampler - all... More

We happened upon this gem of a restaurant by chance. Beautiful place, friendly staff, and awesome food! The restaurant is cozy and welcoming. We arrived at 5:30 on a Tuesday night, and there was already a wait. There aren't a lot of tables, but reserved seating at the bar and the large communal table enabled us to get seats within... More

Just the best yummy food in all of Richmond! The staff is so nice and friendly. Wish it were bigger,but only so it would be easier to get a reservation. The point - this place is so good you need to plan in advance to go so you have a reservation - but it's worth it:)

We had not been to Stella's before and are kicking ourselves for waiting so long. We didn't have reservations and ate at the long communal table. We chatted some old friends and made some new ones. Dinner ran $110 for two, with two appetizers, 2 full dinners and 4 drinks. It was way too much food, but it tasted so... More

I had a very enjoyable brunch at Stella's, today. The meal was the Loukaniko Sausage Skillet and it was delicious and a large portion. For a beverage, I had the Hagia Sophia. Delicious and not too sweet. We sat at the common table with others and enjoyed conversations with other nice customers.
