The food is great and wholesome. I have had a variety of meals there and i especially like the small plates. The ambiance is always quite noisy but that is because everyone seems to be having a good time.

Took my wife here for Sunday Brunch today. Our first time and I must say the excellence of the food was everything their reputation says it is. We both had the special which was crab cakes and avocado topped with poached eggs. Lip-smackin' good. The service was warm and friendly and not at all rushed. Don't understand some of the... More

While I was only at Stella's for a drink and appetizer, it was enough to make me want to return. The spanakopita was flavorful and crunchy. My friend was delighted with her rockfish special.

We chose to sit at the communal table, as the wait for a regular table was very long. Food and wines were really delicious. The grilled octopus was amazing, the calamari sauteed with sun dried tomatoes, capers & artichokes was a revelation. Had to try both moussaka versions: traditional, oh so yummy--and the artichoke moussaka was just as delicious, but... More

Food was delicious and had large portions. Cocktails were great! And it had a really cool vibe, in between downtown and suburbs so a perfect location!

While out on a date night, my wife and I sat at a "community table". It's effectively a bar-height table where you sit with other randomly assigned people. It made for interesting conversation. The food was amazing, locally sourced, and authentically greek. There are plenty of healthy options and the wine menu was unique and very enjoyable. Although a little... More

Stella's is a small restaurant in an upscale neighborhood. On this Monday afternoon Stella's was jammed packed. There was a limited menu with several specials. Tony, our bartender/waiter was fantastic! He was very attentive and knowledgeable about each item on the menu. The food was delicious. I would definitely recommend Stella's to everyone.

Stella's has been a long time favorite of mine and my family. It is difficult to find a table last minute so make reservations early. In all the years we have been frequenting this establishment I can honestly say I have never had a bad meal. Everything is always prepared with fresh ingredients and never overdone with too much sauce... More
