Great vibe. Wonderful place for special occasions. Upscale but friendly restaurant. Portions are good size and food is authentic and delicious. Make reservations and check menu in advance for different days/times. Their spinach and/or feta pastries are the best ever. I would recommend trying them...More

I have been to Stella's many times and over the years, my good feeling towards this place has gone down hill. The service has declined (less friendly, less accommodating), the food has become average, and the prices have skyrocketed. My feeling is that Stella's has...More

The food was amazing, everything very fresh and reasonably priced. Service was professional but friendly. The atmosphere is modern and updated which surprised me in a good way. They have a very busy grocery across the street that has most of the items available for...More

Been here many times for dinner. Never disappointed. First time for brunch. Spanikopita & tzatziki perfect. Had crab Benedict. Unremarkable. Lamb skillet tasty but majority of plate Greek/hash brown potatoes. Looking around the place, I saw much of the same ratio. Being of Greek descent,...More

The late lunch 1:30 crowd was a bit loud. Local hangout favorite west of downtown by 195 & I 64 Broad St. Willow Lawn & Museum district area. Definitely not a place to go for quiet meal. Greek food was very good as always. Salad,...More

We tried lots (maybe too much stuff), and it was all great. For apps, the eggplant fritters were perfect, and the fried calamari was light and crispy. Pasta #5 was a fresh and delicious entree - nuanced flavor and perfect texture. Portions are huge... so...More

My wife and I ate here for the first time tonight. The service was outstanding. The ambiance was comfortable, although given the old tin ceiling I expect it is very noisy when full. We started with a seasonal spring salad with interesting ingredients that was...More

Our first time here and we were quite pleased. The grilled octopus was likely the best we ever had. Their special flat bread with smoked feta was different and also quite nice. They did fall down a bit on the mousaka. Kind of a comination...More

Yes, they have a full bar - at least the one in Charleston does. My niece and I ate at the bar that night.
Do you still not do separate checks ?- We have a group who lunch once a month (usually 6-7) and like getting separate checks - some drink wine, others don't. Just an inconvenience for us if we have to separate the charges with one check. Hear great reviews about your restaurant and would love to try it with our friends. Thanks in advance for getting back to me. Glenna Chenault

Every year I go to the Virginia State Fair just to get a Gyro from Demetri's. I love their Gyros. Every year I search the local Greek restaurants for a similar experience and always walk away disappointed. Are the Gyros at Stella's worth the visit?

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
