While visiting friends in Truckee, we joined them for what have become sell-out "pop-up" dinners at Stella. The night we were there, "Casablanca" was the theme. The service and everything on the Mediterranean menu was 5-star! The evening started was appetizer bites served along with non-alcoholic drinks (people can bring their own wine for an additional corkage fee.) The restaurant... More

This is the restaurant attached to the Ceder House Sports Hotel and I wrote a review on how outstanding the Stella's Pop Up dinner was this last weekend.

These people know how to cook! And all in a custom built beautiful facility! The pressed beams and faux metal rafter supports are like fine art thanks to Jeff & Patty's minds!

Stellas is no longer available for regular dining...only private groups which is really too bad as the food is wonderful as is the atmosphere

No, I didn't go to Truckee to go to Stella. But next time I will! I was shocked that this serious and superb restaurant is where it is. There is no better restaurant within 100 miles. All the food is fresh from the farm, using local ingredients cooked just enough. All the bread is baked there, right before serving. I... More

I was extremely excited to try out Stella from everything I read on-line. This sounded like just the type of place my husband and I would love to go to. However...when I finally got in touch with someone ( which was extremely difficult to do - it's almost like they don't want YOU to get in touch with them...THEY'LL get... More

We enjoyed eating there when they were a"Open Restaurant". Now they've gone "Underground" and you must reserve a special spot on Days when special dinners are being prepared. Bring your own wine but check the calendar first...They book up fast (I'm Told.)...

Stella's was my favorite restaurant in Truckee, but visitors please beware... a few months ago Stella's shifted to Stella Culinary, focused on specific events only. Although they still offer some traditional dinner seatings (though, they no longer serve alcohol), they are few and a bit hard to predict/plan for prior to the posted schedule. If you are a local or... More
