“Great Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

This is our second visit here, 1st was for dinner, which I reviewed. This was for lunch on Memorial Day weekend. Service, food, etc were excellent, great lunch choices and prices for lunch are great. However since was Holiday weekend parking was a BIG problem, my husband had to walk 20 minutes from where he parked car, the other people in our party just kept riding around til they found a spot right out front (that is what I suggest you do, someone is always leaving)That aside, Tony was great and VERY nice to us!! The tomato basil soup with shrimp is out of this world. Also the Stella Burger , crab cake on pannini, etc was great!! Highly recommend. Can't wait to go again.

“Wonderful evening!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

Went to Tony Stella's for my mother's day dinner. Truly a fabulous evening. The absinthe mix drinks were unique, delicious and fun. I had a Lavender drink of some kind, and a champagne based drink called "death by morning". Loved them! Among food at our table was a wonderful tomato basil soup, fabulous bread with a garlic dip, stuffed sole, and filet mignon. Desert was bananas foster made at our table by Mr. Stella. He's a showman and a salesman and a gentleman truly interested in his guests having a great experience. I found him delightful. We returned the next evening as well for a lighter dinner of just appetizers and drinks in the bar and everything was just as good the second time around. Also should mention that the service was great, and the entertainment (Melissa VanFleet) can't be beat. She's got a wonderful voice, a great "requests" repertoire, and she completes the ambiance perfectly. Simple a lovely evening (or two).

“Mr. Stella's quite a character...”

Stopped in for lunch. The absinthe drink menu was extensive. Menu and service were OK. Definitely would be a spot for happy hour or after dinner drinks.
