    Stella is the best meal for your dollar in Absecon island. We have never had a bad meal here and tonight did not disappoint. We shared the burrata, the eggplant parmigiana, and the salmon. Each dish rivaled the best we’d ever had of that particular item. The service was attentive but we did not feel rushed. And we love that it’s BYO. The only thing they could improve upon is their limited outdoor seating. We were very close to two other tables. A great evening! I can’t recommend it enough

    We went there for Mother’s Day dinner. I had the short rib and my wife had the seafood special. Great food and service. Portions were adequate. It was our first visit and it will not be our last. Parking can be challenging. The one unisex restroom is located in the absolute rear of the building which requires you to walk through the kitchen area and allows a firsthand glimpse of their food preparation. Highly recommend Stella’s!!!!

    We’d never heard of Stella but stumbled across it looking for a reservation using Open Table. Reviews looked good so we gave it a shot and were NOT disappointed. For apps We had stuffed dates, should have doubled up for four people. Also the bread plate. I got the charred Romaine salad my wife got the Labne salad. Both were good, Labne was better. I ordered the Lemon Sole with crab and spinach in a Berre Blanc sauce which was perfect. I forget what our friends ordered but I tasted everything and it was all delicious. Highly recommend the banana bread pudding for dessert. Great experience can’t wait to go back.

    We love Stella Restaurant. The minute you walk through the front door you hear the low sounding cool music and see famous stars from the past projected on the wall,. The staff is polite and very attentive, the food is delicious, especially the roast chicken. We also like that this restaurant is BYOB. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Dinner was excellent once again. We have dined there several times. The food is prepared fresh and worth the wait. I enjoyed the charred romaine as an appetizer and the orchetti (sp) little ears of pasta with sausage-a personal favorite. Stella is a BYOB and they have recently started accepting credit cards-- with an additional 3% service charge.

    Stella is among the best food in Ventnor; comparable to many restaurants in NYC. The food is consistently good as is the service. Have gone many times this winter (and ordered take-out too) to show support for a restaurant that stays open year-round and thrives in the summer.

    So my wife and I were at your establishment about one month ago and loved it. We were talking with two other couples and they were very interested in going to the restaurant. Immediately made the reservation. Now we are a party of six. Nothing to say but absolutely delicious. The flavors are off the chart in all dishes. I tried there dates as an appetizer and was something I have never tasted before delicious. All the entrees were made to perfection. This has to be my new found restaurant to go to. Thank you all for making the evening so special to be with friends. See you soon.

My friend and I brought home our leftovers to have as a meal the next night. I already booked another reservation for June for my husband and I.
