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

We had a very light and delicious dinner consisting of baked oysters, a wonderful salad, wonderful bread and lemon, orzo soup. Wish we could have eaten more but we were just too full to partake. WE’LL BE BACK!!!

Wow is all I can say! Delicious, fresh, not fussy Mediterranean food that left us wondering how this could be possible in the city of Richmond instead of New York City which is what we are accustomed to. Please make this a MUST restaurant when...More

I will say that Stella’s has been one of my favorite Richmond restaurants for several years. The food is amazing and the service is typically good. Unfortunately tonight was and exception. We had a 5:30 reservation. At 7:30 we had finished our meal and were...More

The food was amazing and the service was wonderful. I’m still dreaming about the artichoke moussaka. The place is tiny and it fills up fast, so get a reservation in advance.

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
