“Great race week-end stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Truly enjoyed this American-Greek restaurant. In town from Montreal for a NASCAR race and had a great Saturday night dinner at Stella's. This restaurant had been recommended by friends who had eaten a couple of weeks before. Innovative menu, great friendly service, complete with a unique atmosphere.

“Fabulous innovative, fresh dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

Unable to get reservations in this popular West End neighborhood restaurant, we showed up at 5:45 and were able to sit (3 of us) at the community table right away on Friday night. Everything from kale salads to complex Greek-influenced entrees (so innovative in the combination of ingredients I can't seem to recall any specifics!). Knowledgeable wait staff, some of the best food I've had. Can't wait to return.

“Saturday night in Richmond”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

A group of 5 dined here on a Saturday night and only had about a 10-15min wait which is good for a busy restaurant with no reservation. Our server Jeffery was excellent! He knew all of the specials, had great recommendations, and made our dining experience even more enjoyable. I loved the decor of the restaurant too. They had candles lit with fresh gerber daisies at each table and an old black and white movie screening on the back wall of the restaurant. It is a great place to grab dinner and drinks with friends to catch up or sit at the community table and make new friends. I will be returning when back in Richmond! Also, try Stella's calamari!

“Great Greek in Richmond”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

We love Greek food and the opportunities in Richmond are limited. This was our first visit to Stella's in many years and we were surprised and delighted by their new location in a quiet residential area with easy parking, at least at lunchtime on a Monday.

The lunch menu offers a number of selections from their more extensive dinner menu, with a few more typical lunchtime items. We decided to share octopus, saganaki and taramasalata accompanied by retsina (the waiter tempted us to upgrade our "one glass each" to a carafe, which was too much). All three items were the best of each we had tasted in a long time. All were freshly prepared and appealing to the eye and palate. The octopus was tender. We would have preferred a more "resinated" flavor to the retsina which was a bit bland for our taste. Service was friendly and welcoming. We will happily return soon for dinner.

“Great food, loud room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

On a Wednesday ight, this place was so busy, there was a list to eat at the bar. We ended up getting a table and enjoyed some meze. The spanikopita was some of the best I've ever had. The lamb frites were good, but the keftedes were great. My white wine flight was wonderful. I've never had Greek wines before, but these were a delightful discovery.

I can see why people find it overrated. The food was good, but it kind of felt snooty. In Richmond.
