We dined at Stella's on New Years' Eve. It was our first time to go there. The restaurant was very nice. There's a bar in there that is it's own section and it looked packed. The restaurant was also very busy, but we had a reservation and were seated right away. The service was excellent and they were quick to change a drink order when the Dr. Pepper tasted a little off. My water glass was consistently full which was nice. The food was very good - my husband commented that the steamed vegetables tasted great and I really enjoyed my grilled chicken with bow tie pasta in a cream sauce. We shared their homemade turtle cheesecake and it was delicious! Overall, a great night and a great place for a nice dinner date!

The food came out cold to much staff for the area, way to pricey for what was offered, my dates chicken was fatty instant potatoes, none home made sauces, very bland not what you would expect from a highly rated food establishment. NEVER AGAIN.

Great dinner at Stella's last week following TTU graduation. The place was packed, no drop off in service or quality....just staff working that much harder to deliver. Well done.

Had a great pizza at Stella's. Cool place for intimate meals as well as groups that want to sit at the bar area and watch the local sporting events on the t.v.'s Laid back atmosphere with great service!

We have been to Stella's on more than one occasion and have had good experiences, but they were definitely not on their game today. There appeared to be adequate staff, and I understand they were busy, but by 2:30 in the afternoon should have worked any kinks out of the service. We had a reservation, but were told they were "running behind" which is not a surprise for one of the few places open on a holiday, but several people waiting had called ahead and yet somehow not made it onto the printout. We got very little eye contact from our waiter, no salt/pepper, no water refills, sticky champagne flute, and had my chair run into about every 5 minutes through out our meal. After waiting a good half hour, our food arrived (turkey, dressing, green beans, cranberry something). The potatoes were cold, green beans had been steamed but had absolutely no seasoning and tasted like they had been dumped out of a bag of frozen ones. My daughter's Cesar salad was wilted with cold chunks of breaded eggplant. The saving grace of the meal was the lobster bisque, which was very good. We decided to skip dessert and not chance it, There are way too many restaurants in town for a place charging the prices they do to do business in such a manner. So disappointed.
