Stars is one of my favorite places to dine and have drinks. The restaurant is not overly expensive. I enjoy dressing up and having dinner with my husband. We then head up to the roof and enjoy a soft breeze, drinks and a beautiful view....More

I dined with friends while attending a conference. I was disappointed that we weren't able to eat on the rooftop, but the ambiance inside was nice. The food and service were excellent. Sullivan is a great waitress and so friendly!
