Loved everything about Stella's. Went on a personal recommendation from a Richmond local, and Stella's did not disappoint. Made a last-minute reservation, was only able to get 9 p.m., but we were told if we came early in the evening, we might be able to get seats at the communal table. We decided to try our luck and ended up... More

We did a girls lunch for the holidays and had a great time and great food. The spanakopita was fresh, the saganaki was awesome and the Kalamazoo was perfectly fried very lightly. The sauces served with each appetizer complimented the food perfectly. I had a spartan sandwich with the Lima bean salad - the bread was Stella's homemade and was... More

I had dinner at Stella's for the first time after hearing many great things about it. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and our waiter was very helpful explaining any Greek food terms that we did not understand. The Shrimp Santorini was delicious with the feta cheese and other spices used. There are not a lot of tables, so be... More

Have been to Stella's multiple times and have never been disappointed with the food or the services. On this particular evening I brought a friend who had never dined there before. Our waitress was awesome and provided great suggestions. She made us feel at home and welcomed. The food was amazing as usual. Our bill came and we were still... More

My husband and I were driving up to New Jersey from Florida and stopped overnight in Richmond. We love Greek food and found Stella's review on Trip Advisor. The reviews were fabulous and we were not disappointed. WOW!!!! What a FABULOUS restaurant! The food was delicious; the service was great and the atmosphere is festive and warm. We had one... More

This was our first visit to Stella's and it won't be our last. The menu is pure Greek with interesting dishes (check it out online). We both had the same special (can't recall the Greek name) and it was wonderful - roasted veggies and rolled beef and rice in a lemon sauce that was bursting with flavor. Our server was... More

I live around the corner, but only have the pleasure of eating there every 6 months or so. They have yet to disappoint. Stella's calamari light and tasty, not the deep fried rubber bands of other spots. House retsina wines first rate and easy on the pocket book. Artichoke moussaka light with hint of fennel. Black kale salad more than... More

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
