Great food, service and atmosphere. Chef Jacob does such a wonderful job! This is by far, the best place around the area.

“Excellent Food, intimate atmosphere”
Reviewed 18 April 2012

Great food, excellent service. A little pricey but overall nice. Not kid friendly if your kid likes "kid" food, but if your kid is willing to eat adult flavours, then they will like it too.

“Just as good as everyone says it is!”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

Unbelievably good. I agree with 1 Michelin star would be appropriate if I compared Stella to my dining experiences in France. Prices ver y reasonable for the food and the quality.

“Wow- great dinner”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

Went to Truckee for some great skiing at Northstar- finally some decent snow this year. Had dinner at Stella's and were very glad we did. We shared a 4-course fixed price for $55- what a bargain and added the wine pairing for $35. The restaurant was very nice about allowing us to share and even included 2 of the special treats.

The cauliflower soup, butter lettuce and 48-hour ribs were very good. The stand-out was a bacon-wrapped carrot that came with the ribs.

I would love to stay at the hotel next time up.

“When I send someone to Stella I feel as if I am giving them a gift!”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

I have the opportunity to refer guests to local restaurants. It never fails that when one of my guests return from their meal at Stella they are more than pleased with the service, the food, and the wine list. A repeated comment is that the prices are well in line with the wonderful meal that they have eaten.
Thank you for for providing this wonderful dining experience in the Tahoe area!
