We have the lobster and crab sushi roll and their homemade clam chowder. Both were out of this world delicious! Tad, our server was very friendly and informative on the locations and hours of operations of the other places we wanted to visit while in Uptown Minneapolis. Will visit this establishment again on our next visit.

The parmesan crusted Alaskan halibut is out of this world served on top of garlic smashed potatoes and asparagus. Very delicious. The ahi was also excellent. Server was friendly and knowledgable and service was attentive. Only complaint is sitting on the second floor the airvents blow cold air directly on you. It was a very chilly evening and I can't believe how cold the air cycled from their system. Didn't need a/c, needed heat! The food was outstanding and so was the service.

I have heard so many great reports about Stella's from friends, I was dying to try it. My daughter-in-law and I saw this lovely, sunny afternoon to do a little shopping and try the Happy Hour at Stella's. We were happy we were able to find seating on the rooftop patio. We found a nice table under a shady umbrella. Our server Noah arrived and ordered our margarita's promptly. He was very pleasant. Our other server was Megan who also was lively and friendly.

The only dissapointment was when we found out that Happy Hour was only served downstairs. We decided we just wanted to enjoy the sun and the rooftop, so we opted to stay at our table.

We ordered off the appetizer menu and decided to split the BLUE MUSSELS IN CHAMPANGE SAUCE WITH TOASTED BAUGETT BREAD FOR DIPPING. We also ordered the OYSTERS MEXICAN STYLE WITH SALSA. We did top off the appetizers with the KEY LIME PIE. We split all three items and it was very satisfying.

My daughter-in-law and I both agreed we plan on coming back soon for dinner. We loved the rooftop dinning , ambiance and thought the food was excellent and fresh.

The service was excellent and done quickly with a great friendly attitude.

I just want to add one more observance; when I read the reviews prior to going to Stella's it seemed that several reviewer mentioned the noise. Maybe we were there early in the afternoon and it was a quiter group of diners. We were able to carry on a conversation without any problem.

avoid a seat next to the stairs. as people walk down, their shoe dirt will drop into your food. Mgmt will try to get away with it.

It was good that we had made a reservation several weeks ago because the weather finally decided to act like spring and EVERYBODY headed to Stella's. It was very, very busy, but our reserved table was ready right on time. Our server, Tony, was great! He was very attentive and knowledgable of the menu items. The food was incredible. The sea scallops were done to perfection and had a delicious avocado/lobster garnish. Others at the table had halibut, salmon, and swordfish. Rave reviews from all. An added bonus were the mojitos; very tasty.
