Being a theologian and member of a sorority, I naturally know Greek, so I challenged a few of the staff members on some of the Greek terms on the menu. They were astute in the language. I arrived at Happy Hour and it is the rage. Do not miss this Happy Hour! The dishes are $5, the carafe of wine... More

Exceptional service and recommendations, started with the Kreatopita, an appetizer with beef and bechamel in phylo dough, had a fantastic gyro with the best lamb ever, super tender and tasty with excellent tzaziki. Don't miss the Lima bean and feta salad, very good blend of flavors and the texture was perfect. My friend had the souvlaki chicken pita, the chicken... More

We went based on recommendations from several different sites and absolutely loved everything about it; the food, atmosphere and the staff. Hummus was the best we've EVER had, and grouper special was divine. Chocolate mousse cake outstanding. The restaurant environment is ideal for couples/dates. So glad we made it here!

Excellent moussaka, duck confit flat bread and baked oysters. Service was attentive and helpful. Good and interesting wines and cocktails. Was full of people at 6p so be sure to get a reservation! Free parking on the street (neighborhood) was easy.

We walked in one evening with no reservations and hoping to get lucky. Our hostess did some calculations and to our delight we had a table for four. After drinks and wine arrived we ordered Stella's Kalamari and the Artichoke. Don't miss it. The the Lamb Shanl, Rockfish and Vegan Skillet. Zing, Pow. Like a palate party going on. Lucky... More

Quaint location on quite street in the heart of the city. Decor rustic chic. Staff so friendly, I thought they were putting me on--they were not, just nice. But the food...authentic, innovative, and just good to eat. Comfort classics. The portions were not shy either. oh, right--the cretan was one of the better cocktails i have had in a bit.... More

We stopped by at 9:30 in a Friday, after a very long work day. The fun, sparkling, flavorful places we get to visit when traveling for work! Stella's in Richmond. It's the gem of an eatery owned and loved on by a 74 year old Greek gal. Her husband has several restaurants but Stella, who bakes for and owns this... More

I took my daughter to Stella's on a Monday night for an 8 pm reservation. It was packed! We weren't seated on time but people were lingering and the hostess kept us abreast of timing. No complaints there. Once we were seated, Tony (our server) graciously welcomed us and walked us through the menu since it was our first time.... More

The food was very good if not exceptional, but the whole experience lovely and I will happily go back often! Noteworthy: the selection of Retsina's and Stella's to go across the street.
