In the endless repetition of fries, wings, and nachoes that passes for food in most college towns as in Oxford, Stella 12 Beech is like an oasis in the desert! The space is airy, light, and beautifully decorated. I had two glasses of a delicious white wine, a fine house salad with a lightly spicy sesame soy dressing, and a swordfish served with sauteed vegetables and absolutely delicious wasabi mashed potatoes. The fish was beautifully grilled, and everything was served in generous portions. The service involved real teamwork on the part of both table server and bar server. The meal was certainly not dirt cheap, but I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for and that was absolutely true here. A major selling point for many people is the wide selection of vegetarian dishes offered.

Significant other and I visited her 3 grand children enrolled in Miami U and took them to Stella 12 Beech for dinner. First visit to Oxford and found Stella to be a gem for fine dining. It is a short walk from the Holiday Inn downtown. The decor is comfortable and the food and service was great.

Very good food at Stella 12 Beech.

My wife and I were passing thru Oxford for one night and having never been to Oxford before, I chose Stella thru Trip Advisor. Great choice too!

Nice choices of upscale foods, prepared well and served steaming hot. We each had a different salad, which were unique and delicious...lots of little interesting things in them which came together nicely. One of our entrees was the feature of the day, swordfish; the other filet mignon. Both were excellant, served with different accompaniments that were outstanding and prepared perfectly.

Prices were fair for the quality and offerings on the menu. It's a bit pricey, but the food and overall quality of our meal made up for it.

We also enjoyed a bottle of Joel Gott cab, which is one of the reasons I chose the restaurant. I figured that if they offered Joel Gott, they had a little something going on...and they did.

Sorry to say that we were too full for dessert...but they looked very good.

Ambiance is just a bit above average. It is comfortable and has been remodeled to it's present decor from who knows what in it's past life in a college town. But, it is a nice atmosphere, that is on the upscale side with nice little touches of flowers, etc.

I recommend Stella 12 Beech for a nice quiet dinner, wine and some great food.

We just enjoyed another great pair of meals (one seafood, one vegetarian) at Stella 12 Beech in Oxford, Ohio. The ambiance in this historic building is a delight, and service is helpful and welcoming.
