We visited recently for a family outing. The food and service were excellent and the view of the city from the rooftop was beautiful. They do not take reservations for the rooftop, but we went on a Sunday morning and did not have to wait long.

I brought a group of colleagues to Stella's on July 19th based on recommendations of others, now I have been there in the past, but this time takes the cake.

Love the roof top seating in the summer time. Great ambience. Food is good. Drinks are good. It can be a bit expensive. There are some cheaper things on the menu though. Try the Champagne mussels appetizer. Very good!!

I always wanted to eat here, & when we finally did we where so impressed with the food and the service. A little spendy for our pocket book and that is why we didn't go there sooner. I'd like to say we would go there more often but we would go broke, $$$. If you can afford it, do it,... More

I dined with 5 others after work last week. We enjoyed the1/2 price happy hour drinks and appetizers. Then on to the main dishes where no one was disappointed. From surf to turf everyone was a member of the clean plate club.

The dishes we had halibut and tuna were all very good but way over priced. The service was attentive and friendly
