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.

I've had dinner at Stella's multiple times, and the food has always been superb. I would give 5 stars, but the service and busy-ness has sometimes detracted a little bit from the experience (but not too much, evidenced by the fact that I keep coming back). I'll quickly get the negatives out of the way. You can make dinner reservations... More

Stella's always has a good crowd and can be tough to get in but its worth the wait! We've tried most things on the menu-Salmon is excellent as is the Lamb Shank. Its worth the visit-our entrée came out before we finished our appetizer but that's a first-otherwise it was a 5 star meal!
