Stella's Bistro - Simpsonville
Wonderful service! Host had already made plans for us to sit in private dining room at my request! Food is exceptional!
Impressive bistro style restaurant; although cuisine not classical French. Full service bar also present. As far as food, the fried okra made a good starter. For entree, I had hanger steak and my wife had duck. Both were excellent. service was appropriately attentive. One complaint I would voice is that the chairs could have been more comfortable.
It was excellent! From the moment we walked in to the time we left, it was perfect.
This is was the second time I’ve been, the first time was ok, this time we went for my birthday dinner and I ordered the Quail, the root vegetables were not cooked all the way, they were hard and the quail was undercooked.
Great place, good food, will be back
It was my first time at Stella’s and I had a fantastic experience. Our server was great and every dish we tried was delicious. Already talking about setting up a date night there again soon!
Celebrated my birthday here. First time.
Food was very good. Will return.
Always a favorite for any special occasion.
We moved to Greenville from Dallas and were searching for a nice night out restaurant. While there are some very good restaurants, nothing really fit what we were looking for. Stella's does. Service was very good. Ambiance is fine, little loud but manageable. Food was great. Southern influence, but still classical. Wait staff was incredible. Water glass always filled and while constantly checking on our needs, the service was unintrusive. Price point is high for what we have seen in area, but worth every penny.
Good was fabulous!!! Have always had unbelievable dinners here for many years. Always consistent.
Wonderful Bloody Mary. Shrimp and grits were the best. My husband had tomato soup and meatloaf. Great service. Will be back!
Always great fresh tasting food
Early New Year’s Eve dinner, worked out very well for us. Thank you!
Stella's is what you expect for this price point. Delicious food and cocktails, attentive service, and true value for the money. Will be back again and again!
I'd recommend with some reservations. The last three times we've been here there has always been something that wasn't right for at least one of us. Latest visit: bacon that was seriously underdone--it looked like the kitchen passed it through a broiler for a second or two. So unappetizing to receive that on top of an open-faced "sandwich." For some reason the "grilled bread" was soggy. The burger itself was a huge slab of meat about 1" thick that seemed to be just a big slab of ground meat that was char grilled. There didn't seem to be any seasoning in or on the meat. The restaurant was not busy, so none of these issues should have occurred. One member of our party enjoyed here mushroom croquette and the fried okra as usual was very good. Another person enjoyed his grilled pork and polenta cake.
As I said, some let downs and some successes. Personally, we won't be returning to Stella's in the near future. Three visits and three times with at least one disappointed diner because of some basic issues. Like most restaurants I'm sure Stella's has trouble fully staffing, so I don't want to single out Stella's. Three or four years ago we visited regularly because there weren't issues.
Great food and great service for a birthday dinner! Thanks!
It was a full house so it was a little noisy. We have been going here for years. Food is fantastic and service was great. Waiter made us feel like he was happy for us to be there.
Awesome as always ! Never disappoints in food and service .
Food and service was excellent as always. This is our “Cheers”...everyone knows us and we know them.
Always awesome, the best restaurant in Greenville
Excellent as always!
We had a lovely evening with friends and the variety, preparation , and presentation of the food was nicer than many restaurants. On the downside, the noise level hinders polite conversation. It would be lovely if it were possible to buffer the noise.
Very nice use of regional products with an affordable price point. Nice taste and flavors and service!
We shall return
Stella’s is our favorite restaurant in the upstate hands down. We’ve worked in restaurants for years and are always impressed. Thank you for all the memories! (And ICYMI Brent rocks!!!)
The shrimp cakes are awesome and the service was excellent. Thank you.
Delicious as always! Brad was excellent server. Had the steak which was cooked just right
Stella’s never disappoints. Everything we’ve had there has been excellent from the shrimp and grits to the monkfish or steak.
Add in the excellent service and locally farmed vegetables and it’s hard to beat.
First time at Stella's. Everything was outstanding ! Local sourced and lot's of interesting combinations of flavor.
Delicious as usual! Pleasant setting, attentive staff, good food. Will return.
As always the food and the service are outstanding at Stella’s Bistro! We love it and will keep coming back!!!
Great food and service!
The staff and service was exceptional. The appetizers and entrees were delicious and generous. We'll be back!
Wanted to try Stella’s since moving here, the unique entrees were excellent.
Still brilliant place to enjoy an evening out with friends or with excellent food and service
Our server was wonderful. They were prepared for the birthday celebration and presented all beautifully.
Consistently good food and service here. One of our favorites.
Becky is a great server if you have the pleasure! Has a very nice smile 😀 and very attentive but not standing over us like some servers do ! I have never been to Stallas on a Monday, but it was quite busy ! I always love the food and that makes the drive from Laurens worth the trip
Stella’s has great food, but probably a bit overpriced for what you get. Portion sizes are small. The restaurant is cold, dark, and noisy. I would suggest sitting outside. I’d go here again, but not on my top shelf list
