A warm, cozy atmosphere with good food. A little pricey for a small portion of pasta but the food is nicely prepared and very tasty.

Stella's is a good stop in the South Street Seaport area. We walked around the whole area scoping out the menus and settled on this one. We were both in the mood for seafood - blame it on the area. I chose the Chilean Sea...More

We were attracted to Stella's salad choices and weren't disappointed. Both of us had the Mediterranean Salad and I added a side of ratatouille. The greens were fresh and the salads weren't overdressed. Nice. The salads' supply of grilled vegetables was a bit scanty, though....More

We stumbled upon this restaurant/bar while walking in the Seaport area. Our niece's name is Stella so we had to go in. Bartender was very friendly. We enjoyed the ambiance and would definitely stop in again.

Stella, located in the South Street Seaport, is a Manhattan Bistro; a new type of Bistro that pays homage to our European ancestors. With New York City being the cultural epicenter that it is, Stella has created a unique meld of Old World European tradition with Manhattan je ne sais quoi. We invite you to come down and enjoy our fine foods, spirits and ambience. Our Bistro delivers the feel of a “modern 1920’s Paris brasserie” with a relaxed and upscale setting of black and silver motif, trimmed with red accents. Swarovski crystal chandeliers hang down from the black granite and espresso-stained mahogany bar.
