Having eaten several times at Stella, my friend and I were looking forward to another good dinner. We were very disappointed. The meal was mediocre and pedestrian. I had shrimp and scallops. They came on a bed of hard spaghetti with a strange cream sauce. The dish was sort of warm, but not hot. My friend's chicken on risotto was overly salted and not very good. We were both unhappy with the meals and the prices seemed a lot higher - $14 for a hamburger seems too high. The service was fine - kitchen a little slow (we were only the second diners that evening). Looks like we will be looking for a new dining spot next year.

We (wife, teen daughter and I) liked this place. Super friendly service, attractive space and excellent food right in the middle of town. Even though the place was somewhat slammed by unexpected large groups post-Spring Break they hustled and got the job done WITH a good attitude. The waitress actually came over and made sure we slipped our little order for 3 in before this huge table of 12+. I would definitely return here.

Stella's is a fine dining restaurant in the uptown section of Oxford. The food - filet mignon, shrimp and scallop pasta, pork tenderloin and mahi mahi - all pleased the customers. The presentation of the food was attractive. The service was good, but our dinner took a while to be served from the kitchen, and we were dining leisurely. We enjoyed our desserts - creme brulee, flan, cheesecake, tiramisu & chocolate were good also. The setting of the restaurant is contemporary and inviting.

Stella's is an upscale restaurant in the uptown section of Oxford. The restaurant itself is well decorated and has a nice ambiance; a nice restaurant with a more sophisticated feel than the other college eateries. The menu selection was good and offered choices that made it difficult to choose. The food, however was disappointing. The Cesear salad was overdressed and the croutons stale. Our table ordered a medium rare ribeye that was delivered quite rare, mussels that were good but the broth in which they were served was flavorless, and pasta which was nothing special. Bar and table service were both good.

We ate here recently and had a tasty meal. The bbq pork was nice albeit a bit dry, and the salad was more than adequate. Our only complaint was that service was slow since we waited a long time in between our starters and our main course, and the drinks before and after dinner took a while as well. But the ambiance was nice and it was an overall good experience.
