This food is made with lots of love, 5 star food made in huge portions, the food is a bit expensive but worth every penny, I would have paid this much for half the food I recommend reservations, the waiters and staff were great and had a amazing attitude, over all was 5 stars!

I have only eaten here once. Four of us shared a salad and an array of mezes. Even based on this limited experience, I am confident in stating that Stella's is among the best Greek restaurants in the US (and I eat at A LOT of Greek restaurants)! Two good tests of Greek cuisine are a restaurant's tzatziki and their... More

Every part of this meal was wonderful. From the service to the Greek films on the wall to the small plates, mezze, of broiled oysters with feta/spinach and dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) to the avgolemono soup to the moussaka, pastichio with a very unique bechamel sauce. The desserts of hazelnut chocolate baklava and creme brulee were outstanding. I cannot rate... More

We have been going to Stella's throughout all of her transformations since she was upstairs on Harrison Street. And though this restaurant is not the same thing, the food here really is super great. The waitstaff are actually very friendly and helpful. We went in with no reservation on a Thursday and were seated in 10 minutes. We ordered a... More

Stella's makes a weeknight special! We didn't have reservations but went early and managed to be seated at the community table. We got fresh summer tomato salad and the amazing Greek pasta to split and still had leftovers to take home.

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!
