    Extraordinary harmony and quality in superbly creative dishes and desserts. While the menu isn't particularly large, every one of the 6 items we selected was exceptionally well balanced in flavor, texture, and presentation. From the warm olives and the strawberries with chevre to the scallops, the steelhead, and the pear poached in primitivo, everything was perfectly prepared and served in a setting reminiscent of an upscale Parisian restaurant. Definitely will return!!

    What a truly special place. We decided to sit at the bar (there are two, and both are stunning) because you can get the restaurant menu there and we thought the ambiance was lovely. We shared arancini, the tomato and burrata and the parapadelle bolognese - all excellent! Everything was fresh and lovingly prepared. We had the insane coconut flan with coconut cookies (still dreaming of this dish!) and the fantastic cannoli for dessert. The experience is the opposite of most hotel restaurants; the service was friendly and personal and the food was top-notch. We will be back!

    Cocktails were sooo good & refreshing. Had a delicious Prawns & Chicken dish with a Pistachio Pesto sauce that was light, it did not overpower dinner. The outdoor patio atmosphere was quaint & beautiful. It was wonderful to dine outdoors in the Star Garden at Stella's.

    We’ve been to the Sorrento many times. This was by far the worst experience. The male bartender in the Stella restaurant was extremely rude and combative. Each employee appeared to have no idea what the other was doing. We felt as if there was no management to direct staff. This resulted in very poor service.

    I chose Stella because I had an event to get to at St James Cathedral nearby, and was delighted to find the diver scallops on potato ravioli with a cream sauce and a simple arugula with balsamic salad. The coconut flan was worth another trip to Seattle.

    We really enjoyed eating outdoors on the patio. Surprisingly not very noisey even though by a busy street. Our waiter was perfectly attentive. My spouse had Halibut Rumesco over clam & bean stew, which was wonderful and the most inventive meal they'd had in years. My Pappradella Bolognese was great. Our waiter was perfectly attentive. We saw a lot of interesting cocktails coming out of the bar. We look forward to eating there again.

    The evening started off great, but instantly took a turn when we’ve arrived at Stella. From constantly getting the order wrong and not remembering what we got, to trying to pull of Manhattans as Old-fashions, to replacing Burrata with Mozzarella and trying to pull it off. What a horrible experience! definitely not worth the 18$ apps and 16$ cocktails. Pretty disappointing

    STELLA.Responded on June 9, 2022Hello! I'm sorry you're experience was so disappointing.

    My friend, my dad, and I went to Stella this past week and it was amazing! All of my expectations were met and even exceeded. Our waitress was very personable and funny. She explained the menu very well and was extremely attentive. The vibe is more of a homey intimate feel inside the restaurant. The food was seasoned to perfection. My dad is someone to always ask for salt and he made it a point to state he never even thought to request salt or pepper. Overall the food was a 10/10. I will definitely be coming back! I was not able to capture a pic of our main dishes because we ate them so fast.

    We enjoyed the lovely star garden. It reminded me of all the small outdoor cafes in Italy. Some of their cocktails were good, others were very bitter and they were pricey. The food was good in concept but felt like it was missing something. The burrata needed more balsamic and salt, the burger needed lettuce or something clean, the Bolognese needed more sauce and less meat. The desserts and espresso were lovely and the atmosphere was very peaceful.

    The "prosciutto" wrapped figs were wrapped in bacon and there were 4 of them after the waiter had told us there were 5. The Dungeness crab stuffed artichoke had no crab in sight- only bread crumbs for $24. it's a rip off. The filet mignon was over done and believe to or not we gave the leftovers to our dog. We ordered a bottle of Pinot Noir that was listed at $57. but was charged $60. on the bill- didn't bother pointing it out to the waiter and still tipped the 20% but we'll never go back.

    I had a horrible time at Stella and let's just say I left completed underwhelmed and embarrassed. I had booked this place for Mother's Day dinner as a treat for my mother in law after seeing how beautiful the star garden terrace was. We arrived exactly at 6pm on time and was seated in the front of the restaurant in a tiny, crowded, and not visual appealing room although I booked the star garden. I had asked my waitress why and they (mentioning they as I don't want to misgender) had said so bluntly that they didn't open today, meanwhile I overheard the other waitress mentioning to the other table that they thought the weather was going to be bad so they closed it but they didn't expect it to be sunny today. Anyways, the food didn't come out until an hour later, LITERALLY AN HOUR LATER AT 7PM, I was so embarrassed and my mother in law was literally starving, she barely eats dinner this late. The food was so underwhelming and not even delicious, the scallops were hard to bite into and chewy and the sauce was sour, my mother in laws steelhead trout was super bland. Didn't even eat the lamb soup. Overall everything was so disgusting but since the waitress obviously had an attitude problem, I didn't want to mention it to take it back in fear of them spitting in my food, lol. So here comes the check and I give a 18% tip (which I regret because the next part) and after I sign, we ask the waitress for a Togo box in which she brings out a paper box for soup, to which my mother in law asked nicely for a container (her English isnt very good) and the waitress gives the most disgusting attitude ever and says " YOU mean a TUBBERWARE" super dirty and bent one, which was obviously rewashed, my mother in law and I were in shock and dissatisfied. We ended up asking the other waitress for one and she brought one spotless and clean. It's so obvious our waitress didn't give a crap after they received their 18% tip and even seems dissatisfied with it as if they deserved 25%?!
