Very good Greek food

Smallish place in a mostly residential area. You definitely need reservations. Place was packed when we arrived at 530 on a Sat. Lots of the usual Greek staples, some of them with a twist - like the artichoke moussaka. For the 4 of us, we shared 5 appetizers plus a side dish. A bit too much food... read more

Food was good and service was good. But if you don't make a reservation ALL your party had to be present before you can be seated, with a very small area to wait in. Again if you don't have a reservation you done get a private table. You will have to sit at a high table with strangers.

Stella's is the only Greek food you need to eat in Richmond. Hands down my absolute favorite Richmond restaurant, and there are plenty of great ones to frequent. I've never had anything I didn't like here; my mainstays include the sautéed calamari, spanakopita, flaming cheese, basically anything and everything. It's also got a wonderful ambiance and the interior has been... More

My husband and I made the trek out into the snow to celebrate my birthday at Stella's and were very pleased with our experience. The decor in the restaurant is very inviting and has a lovely Greek flair. We started with a red wine sampler and enjoyed each wine. They were from the Aegean area and all had some unique... More

Very small place - must make reservations for dinner or you won't get in. No off-street parking, and in a residential area. Clean and restrained decor. Very little room to move around, and, in winter, no place to put your coat, but considering that there is a gust of cold air every time the door open, you might want to... More

I had heard a lot about this restaurant, but my wife and I's dinner didn't quite live up to the hype. We started with a wonderful fried calamari plate and I had some great Greek red wine. It turned average and greasy after that. Great service though.

I loved it. My second time experiencing Greek food this is so much better than my first experience. First of all it's in a very cool little residential neighborhood. It has a 1949 vibe to it I felt. It's not a large place but adequate. Service was very good and helpful. Has a nice bar, clean restrooms, comfortable seating and... More
