Great seafood. Professional service. Delightful in the summer to sit out on the sidewalk in Front street and enjoy their appetizers, raw bar and some crisp white wine. The wine list could use more affordable options. There was a pushy hostess who isn't around much anymore; she was often pushing the meat dishes for some reason, but we have preferred the seafood.
The chowder, fries and fish dishes are favorites.
Amazing Food – I went to Stella Maris for the first time this week. The restaurant was recommended to me by some friends. I had an amazing experience. I am usually not a wine drinker but the waiters suggestion made it hard to refuse and i am glad i didn't it was a great white wine very light and fruity (can't remember the name). For dinner i had the scallops which were sooooo delicious and huge. My fiancee had the Boneless ribs they were so tender. I highly recommend this restaurant. The atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly. I will definitely be back.
Rude and Arrogant. – The food was horrendous and the service was horrible. They over charge for such horrible food and service. I would rather have gone to burger king, they are friendlier there. The place felt cold and the manager seemed too proud as if we were being looked down upon. The place was empty but it takes a long time for the waiters to even come our way. The review before when they say the owner comes to greet is false. They seem to proud for their own good. In all, I had a horrible time there. I will never step foot in there again. Worst place in NYC.
Eh Food. – I just moved here and it's not my first time with Irish food. The food was ok...but no where near as good as my usual. the waiter was very slow (and it wasn't that crowded). I explained to him that the person I was with was allergic to onions and he forgot on one of the dishes to tell us that there were onions. When we got the dish...we told the waiter about the problem and he said it was his fault, the kitchen screwed it up...but then didn't do anything about it. Not very accommodating...didn't try and make things right.
Great steak and seafood selection – My new fave spot in the Financial District. Had the steak which was fab and for lunch a few weeks after tried the burger which I was told is organic (loved it!) and oysters. The salads and soups were good as well.
Looks like a decent selection of wines as well although I am not a big fan ... loved the beer, they had some nice ones on tap.
Friendly vibe, great seafood! – Stella Maris is the perfect sized restaurant that provides warmth and intimacy. Charming, the owners seem to take care and time in chatting with the customers. Have been here on numerous occasions and the food has never disappointed. The bar provides a great atmosphere for mingling but sizeable enough for impromptu dining. With so many eating establishments to choose from, it's refreshing to find one that is unpretentious and lacking the "dramas" of other places of equal size. I am definitely a fan and urge others to check this place out as well. You won't be disappointed!
Dissapointing – I really don't see what the big deal is. Unless there is another one out there. This one by the Seaport is not all that. I've had better Scottish food at a pub joint. I ordered the chicken and it was flavorless and bland cost almost $20. The oysters we're grainy. Overall, not a great experience!
It was ok but there are others in on the street i liked better – It was ok. I didn't like the music and emptyness when we were there. I hated the burger bun. Beer tap is a good selection. I would go there for after hour drinks but not food though.
bad food, bad music, bad vibe – bad choice, the last review must have written by the owner itself. went there with freinds after seeing the review, hopeless....
Previous review is false---try this place! – This last review is ridiculous, obviously written by someone with a very personal issue with this place. I have been to Stella Maris several times for happy hour with co-workers and have always been greeted by hostess, then manager, then the owners themselves--who couldn't be nicer people. Arrogant?? You won't find that here. The raw bar is wonderful, the wine and suggestions are always great. As far as dinner, I've only had the steak which was outstanding. This is a really great spot for after-work drinks/apps, a good crowd & lively music, like the relaxed but classic decor as well. Again, staff has always been wonderful to our crew.
