Disappointing. Service was slow and inattentive. I guess that they were short staffed but it doesn’t cover inattentiveness. Cocktails were average and were not cold. (Martinis). Food was ok but nothing exciting. Prosciutto de Parma and pecorino were the blandest I have ever had. Entrees we’re ok. Banana by Dino was the worst dessert I have ever had in a decent restaurant. It was a hockey puck with a blob of ice cream on it. The edges were so tough. It was basically a microwaved stale brownie. The server didn’t come back to the table until after the meal and I didn’t feel like making a fuss, so I just told him at the end. He said he was sorry to hear it was not good (it hardly got touched) and he didn’t not offer to replace or take of the check.
Ambiance was good, location is good, but there are many much better choices in Asbury and the Jersey Shore. We will not return. For $260 for 2 people I need to be able to say somethings was good. All of this was mehhh.
Great time, great food and excellent service! Would recommend the linguini !
Consistently good service and food
Wanted to enjoy the unseasonably warm weather and be by the water.
The first table was chilly. the second table was dark. Disappointed that they did not offer decaf espresso. Food excellent
Everything was great!! Made my wife’s birthday that much better
We were celebrating two birthdays and our server,Brittany, and the entire staff was wonderful! We had so much fun , great food, great service !!!!!! Can’t wait to come back to Stella Mains again!!!
Stella's is a reliable, go-to restaurant for us. We always take out-of-town guests here because of the view and the food is always on point. I had the pappardelle on this visit and it was outstanding. The oysters could have been shucked a little better, but they were good and cold.
We waited too long for water and bread. We had drinks first and the waiter came by twice commenting on the fact that we still didn’t have water and bread. One person didn’t order a drink and just wanted water. Then My daughter waited at least 15 mins for her drink which she finally decided to order because water still wasn’t there. Bad way to start a nice night out with my daughters who were home from college for the weekend. Barada was tasteless and bad presentation. Our waiter was good. Personable and friendly. Overall- lacking so much!
We requested an outdoor table we were sitting on a second floor deck looking out over the water the restaurant was not crowded the night we were there it was absolutely perfect the service was friendly the drinks were delicious the food was delicious only wish I lived closer I’d go back more frequently we were there for an out of state wedding
Great view of the beach from the outdoor seating. reserve outside !
Realizing there is a shortage of wait staff we waited for over 20 minutes to place a drink order.
The acoustics are not great and it’s very loud.
The food was excellent.
We were seated by host at a nice table by window but then told by an assistant manager we had to move for another group with a reservation. We had a reservation as well and requested an ocean view table for our party two days before. He made us feel as if we did something wrong but we were directed to the table by his staff.
No apology was offered by him, and he explained that our table was needed for a group of 6. We agreed to move to another table which had an ocean view for only two of the four of us, whereas our initial seating provided a good view for all four of us. By the way, we chose this restaurant because we wanted an indoor table with an ocean view.
Our waiter apologized and when we made it clear we were not happy with the brusque nature of the manager, he offered to give us a round of drinks on the house. We could tell he was doing his best for customer service recovery.
Food was good but risotto was dry and required more sauce, which was provided upon request.
Four of us had a lovely lunch outside looking at the boardwalk and the beach. Drinks were good and our entrees were very good. My only disappointment was there were only 3 scallops on my plate— another one would have been appreciated
We were outside, by our request on a breezy, beautiful night. Servers were excellent, very accommodating to our numerous requests (with elderly parents. Devon did a great job, and we enjoyed our meals. Meatball appetizer was delicious, sauce as well. Calamari was average, dinner of pappardelle was excellent. Also enjoyed the scallops caponata!
Great server !!
Very over-priced for mediocre food. Drinks were not good and chicken that came with my salad was so overdone it was rubber. Server was good though, no complaints there
The service at the bar before lunch was great. The table service was poor. Food was ok
Wonderful, as always!
Service was GREAT! Food is excellent. My only complaint is getting to the restroom is difficult especially if you have a baby carriage or someone who is handicap, as the elevator is not easily accessible!
Unfortunately I can't give zero stars. Horrible experience. Food was cold and uncooked. Manager apologized, took no responsibility and threw his staff under the bus. One of his staff members came at me trying to start a conflict / flight. What trash. Will never go back. Poor management. Poor staff. Poor food. The manager actually told me he would fire both. Let’s see
Service no check backs after food arrived to see if we needed anything. Calamari was tough and elastic not great. Linguini and clams much better.
Mediocre. Food was bordering on poor. I used to love this place. Very sad about my experience
Server was excellent!
Great outdoor seating. Food was very good and good value.
We had a lovely meal last night at Stella Marina. Our server was efficient and very friendly! We enjoyed our pasta dishes both the spaghetti and the mushroom
ravioli . The ambiance was lovely and not too noisy. Even though it was a cloudy day,
we could appreciate the ocean and the beach views. We will be back in the near future!
One of my favorite restaurants pre COVID, needs some work to get back to that level
Good was delicious. The only thing that was wrong was there was one meal that didn’t come out with the others and we hate to wait a few minutes for it to come out. Other than that, the service was great
As usual, an excellent dining experience at the shore. Great food and beverages. Engaging wait staff. Bartenders doing their best to keep up as the staffing shortages continue. Always one of my go-to places, year-round.
Great good but it was too warm inside the restaurant!
Overall everything was great, a little warm inside, but weather was hot.
We had a great time. Food was wonderful as always. The vibe of the place is really nice.
Consistent food. Great happy staff and wonderful location
Credit card machine wasn’t working.
Loved the food. Our waitress, Victoria was great. Will go back.
Our server was incredible, super cordial, friendly and very attentive. The food was very good, and the atmosphere was very warm and inviting.
Great service and quality food! Their computer was down from henri storm so we had to pay cash. But I’m sure this is a rare issue. Highly recommend it.
Food was bad, service was a shambles. Never going back. Asbury Park has too many other good restaurants. Stay away from this one.
