Let me start by saying that my husband and I were in Greece 6 months ago, and chose this restaurant in hopes of re-living the food we had there. Stella's had rave reviews, and we thought we might get close to finding food like we had on our stay in Santorini. This place is extremely popular, and if you can,... More

I'm not kidding when I say the worst part of brunch was having to narrow down a choice from all the great options. I wish they had a sampler plate of the meze so I didn't have to pick! Anyhow, we had a reservation and I agree with others it seems a little silly to have everyone crowding the front... More

In the latest installment of Stella's, it just keeps getting better. It is now a favorite of mine for lunch. The lima beans and feta are just amazing. Yes, they can even make lima beans delicious! Everything is wonderful -- the salads, yummy sandwiches and entrees. Portions are large so come hungry or take some home for lunch or dinner... More

Stella's is my favorite restaurant in Richmond. I always have a great meal when I go there. I highly recommend ordering off their specials menu, the food is always amazing. The regular menu is great too-I love the zucchini fritters! You need a reservation as the space isn't big, but it's worth it!

I went to Stella's with a group of 10 and sat in the middle high-top table. We tried lots of wonderful foods and had excellent service. I enjoyed the Greek red wine. Everything seemed to be made from scratch. Very delicious. It was a little noisy, but we enjoyed that since our group was noisy.

Absolutely wonderful! Couldn't ask for a better dinner and service. We had early reservations and i have always tried to get in with no luck. Highly recommend!

Had lunch there today and must say our server was excellent. We sat at the bar, since seating was full, but as for seating the bar my be the best. Comfort wasn't a priority here. Perhaps the 5 PM crowd is there primary customer. Wife had Dolmades and I had a Pita sandwich with sliced grilled pork tenderloin, and a... More

Did not know what to expect when we decided to have lunch at Stella's. It was great and while many restaurants claim authentic Greek food, this one actually delivers. Starters were great and big portions. Wanted to have lentil soup but was not available on that day. Had the mushroom soup instead and was good. Good portions, pleasant surroundings and... More

I have been to Stella's about ten times in a wide variety of situations. Really enjoy the food....really want to love the restaurant.....but they are really trying my good nature:( They have tons of rules about reservations and seating and cramming you into crowded space which I understand up to a point. However, for all their attempts at being fair...they... More
