What's not to enjoy at this hidden gem food great for a foodie, the chef's food tastes and presentation well as good as any San Francisco restaurant. Don't miss this place we will be going back and pray that the chef is still there because he could go big in time. The staff service is like watching a professional team all on the same page. The are helpful but also funny at the same time. All for one and one for all a place hidden away in Tahoe Truckie City if in the area don't drive by.

Consistently awesome food. After building up what to expect I was afraid it was going to be a let down to my friend. Boy was I wrong ! Once again Stella was fabulous. It's just the best !!!

Unbelievable meal with wine pairing. From the first pour of champagne with hors d'oeuvres to indescribable desserts and late harvest Sauvignon Blanc, this was perhaps the most delicious meal I have ever experienced. Exceptional service, interesting, innovative fare (cantaloupe caviar was over-the-top!) and perfect wine pairings. We aren't the easiest people to feed-- vegan, gluten-free, face it, we're a challenge-- yet Chef Burton continues to knock it out of the park, for us AND those who prefer meat.

Food is creative and tasty. Staff is very friendly too. The open kitchen design invites guests to watch their meals be prepared with creative care.

It's easy to think that Stella would be ideal for special occasions. But to deny yourself the experience more than once a year would be short sighted! I have eaten there several times and each time every single mouthful has been to-die-for. Here's an idea, go there for all your friends and family's birthdays, anniversaries, half-birthdays....
