We have friends who swear hands down that this is the best restaurant in RVA. They gave us a gift certificate as a thank you. We went with great expectations. We left disappointed. First, we had reservations, we were seated in a two top next to the bar corner. I was pummeled numerous times by folks going to the bar... More

This is a restaurant where you need to prepare to be amazed! Authentic Greek cuisine! We enjoyed a very authentic and personable dinner here. We began with a very delicious saganaki paired with authentic Grecian wine as our appetizer. My wife enjoyed the delicious pistakio and I enjoyed to delicious moussaka. Very very good entrees! For dessert, get the salted... More

My boyfriend and I visited my friend in Richmond over labor day weekend, and this was the first place she took us. We went for dinner shortly after landing in Richmond. I was a little skeptical of a Greek restaurant in Richmond, as I have been to Greece and Richmond a few times, and I wasn't really sure how the... More

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
