We read the reviews and booked a reservation to have dinner here at Stella’s. It is a very tight dining space and almost impossible to have a conversation during their busy time. We had read the food was exceptional, some of best some had said....More

We’ve tried dining on Stella’s on a womb before and the wait has always been too long, so we made reservations this time. The food was amazing, my halibut special was some of the best I’ve ever tasted. The calamari and spanakopita were both delicious,...More

There are not enough superlatives to describe my recent visit to Stella's. To start with, make sure to get a reservation--the earlier the better, as they book weeks and even months in advance. I called 5 days before my trip to Richmond and was lucky...More

The title says it all. Unfortunately it takes weeks to get a seat. While the food is excellent, the wait takes the wind out of your sail. There is a new Greek restaurant at the former site of Crazy Greek on Staples Mill which rivals...More

Stella’s is a favorite of ours, with consistently delicious Greek fare and a lovely, inviting ambience. That said, beware of the vacuum created by the restaurant’s efforts to seal the door for climate control purposes. I have sensitive inner ears and noticed as soon as...More

Well done food, need better service and wine. Location is well and nothing impressive about decoration or history.

We were driving down I-95 and found this place on TAdvisor and, man, I'm glad we did. One of the best lunches we've had in a good while. The vegetarian options were plentiful and everything was very flavorful. The service was better than average. If...More

Cool place. I ate at the bar as usual, and had a fantastic shrimp pasta dish with mounds of shrimp and pasta. They have great beer selection and those great high ceilings. They are finished ceilings though, not the industrial vibe, but a finished elegantish...More

A very good restaurant. Relatively noisy. Good service. Unfortunately, I ordered the moussaka that I did not think was very good. Sort of a gooey mess. Fortunately, the people I was with did get great dishes so I ate part of theirs. I would recommend...More

We ate at the old location when we lived in Richmond. We now live in Charleston, S.C. and a Stella's opened there. They both are terrific. The portions are large and excellent. I had a meat medley and all of the items were prepared well....More

Yes, they have a full bar - at least the one in Charleston does. My niece and I ate at the bar that night.

That's not the kind of place Stella's is. Stella's isn't a quick serve gyro spot it's modern rustic Greek restaurant that lets it's ingredients shine. They do have a lamb gyro at lunchtime but I have never had it. If you're... More
