Up to Richmond for a movie and decided to try Stella's as we had seen the great reviews and love Greek food. We lucked out and got a space right in front of the restaurant! That's a plus as it is street parking only and I can't parallel park unless I am lucky to get a space large enough for... More

We had six for a business dinner and the food and service was excellent! Great vibe, reminded me of some of my favorite neighborhood places in Portland, Oregon. From the apps to the main course, the food was delicious. I now have a new favorite Greek restaurant, can't wait to go back on my next visit to Richmond.

Got lucky and was able to get a reservation for a large group (five mothers plus related family members) on Mothers' Day. Just got around to the review! This restaurant is booked solid most of the time for a reason--it is just that good. Excellent food, attentive professional servers and a relaxed environment. Also a great value to boot. We... More

I was surprised with the quality of food! It was amazing! And also portions are huge! Inwas not able to finish my food. Homemade biscuits are worth or try! You won't be disappointed! Strongly recommend!

This is neat little out of the way spot for authentic Greek cuisine. The food is good and the portions are HUGE!! The hostess and waitstaff were helpful and kind. Love the history of this restaurant and the family behind the establishment. A kid's menu would be nice, but they will make kid friendly portions upon request.

Whenever we visit Richmond we always stop at Stella's for dinner. We start with the Saganaki and I always get the Lamb Frites for my meal even though it is listed as an appetizer. Portions are very generous and service is always excellent!

Have eaten here many times, always excellent. We usually sit at the large communal table in the center of the dining room, which is a nice way to meet some new people. The grilled octopus is one of my favorites.

Make a reservation as this restaurant doesn't seat many people. The food was crazy good. I've had tzaziki sauce before but nothing like their sauce will EVER compare. The sauce served with the Spanakopita and that was the best I have ever had. I tried the Pastichio because it was the most talked about on TripAdvisor. It was like a... More

Visited at 5:00 as that was only reservation available before 9:00... This place is really popular. The appetizer/ salad potions are huge. Should have just split one salad. The lamb fries were ok but could have used more seasoning. Plan to turn the leftovers into lamb stew as they came with abundant au jus sauce. Entrees were average, not significantly... More

The Greek salad is beautiful! Also had the spanakopita and it was the best I have ever had! Had a great pasta dish the last time I was there. Prices are reasonable especially with the portion size. Great for family sharing.
