Ariana Ratings and Reviews

This is our second visit to Ariana. It was as good as we remembered. The food and drink selection was varied and interesting. The serving staff was pleasant and outgoing.
The food was great, we tried the tasting menu and all enjoyed it. There was plenty, but not too much.
We came to the restaurant to celebrate a birthday. The dinner was timed so that we had food when it was appropriate, but had plenty of time to visit.

Ariana is, in my opinion, the best and most consistent restaurant in Bend. It is in a charming little craftsmen style house on a street with local shops and craft beer spots.
It's not cheap, but it's definitely not unreasonable given that every menu item is very high quality and prepared and presented perfectly.
Try it for a date night, work dinner, or if you're just in the mood for good service and a great meal.

This the best restaurant in Bend. Food is fabulous, service is spectacular and don't forget to order the white cranberry cosmo. Truly the best concoction that I have ever had. Ariana's is great every time we go and we have been going for special occasions for years.
This restaurant came highly recommended ...
This restaurant came highly recommended so my expectations were high. Unfortunately, Ariana fell short. The 2 appetizers (bone marrow and the rock shrimp and grits) were very tasty as well as the mushroom bisque; however, the main courses did not deliver. The scallops over risotto dish was less than optimal. The scallops were chewy and the risotto was over cooked-Way too much salt as well. The short rib entree was tough and very dry and the polenta was runny. I have been exposed to great restaurants in my past and was hoping that Ariana would deliver. I would consider myself a foodie and was disappointed in this restaurant. The service was painfully and awkwardly slow as well. I was there with my husband to celebrate a special occasion and sadly neither one of us will go back.

Our waiter was ok. I noticed another waiter who explained the menu items, wish our waiter has been more forthcoming with that info. When they called to confirm our reservation I confirmed that there was a birthday in our party. I was asked the name of the birthday boy. So u expected his birthday would be acknowledged. It wasn't until I mentioned the birthday again. His name wasn't written on the plate, but happy birthday was.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed Ariana's last Thursday evening. Both of our salads were refreshing, and we were both very satisfied with our entrees (vegetarian entrée & scallops with crab risotto entrée). While the portions aren't overly large, my entrée in particular was very rich (and delicious!). Since it was my birthday, I very much appreciated the complimentary dessert - Baked Alaska with lavender ice cream. We would definitely return to celebrate another special occasion!

Outstanding dinner at Ariana- we are Portland foodies and this is our new favorite place in Bend! Every course was stellar- and the sauce over the filet and fingerling potatoes...OMG! Highly recommend but definitely make reservations ahead of time :)

Fantastic food! Best in Bend.
The smoky almond cake is a totally killer dessert and replaces the budino at the top of the dessert list. My pork chop was done perfectly. Normally, the wait staff is interested, cheerful and attentive. That wasn't the case this particular night, which was surprising. My only other problem with Ariana is that it has become some popular that it can be difficult to get a reservation for a particular night at a particular time without planning way in advance.
Ariana was one of my top dining occasion ...
Ariana was one of my top dining occasions of all time, anywhere in the world! Every item ordered by our three diners--from cocktails to dessert--was creatively designed and perfectly executed with the freshest ingredients. No detail was overlooked. We loved the opportunity to enjoy a relaxed evening in a stylish, comfortable setting and receive professional yet friendly service. There is no pretension here, and none of that "trying too hard" approach to the food. Kudos to the owner chefs for their passionate delivery of a knock-your-socks-off experience!

As always, the food and service were outstanding. Ariana's is a "special occasion" restaurant for us because it IS fairly expensive...but we keep trying to invent more "special occasions" in order to have an excuse to go back! Our favorite fine dining in all of Oregon.

We just moved to Bend, as a going away gift one of my clients looked up best restaurants in Bend, and gave me a gift certificate to Ariana. My husband I went to Ariana to celebrate the closing of our previous home. What a wonderful place, food was fabulous, drinks were great,
wine as fantastic. I can't say enough great things about Ariana.We will definitely return.

The food was fabulous, we ordered different dishes so we could sample one each others. Everything was prepared perfectly and delicious, especially the scallops. Was very noisy, perhaps because we had a group of five next to us so difficult to carry on a conversation. Was rainy and cool out otherwise outside dining would be a much better/quieter setting. Definitely will return maybe to do the chef's tasting.
This is probably the best food we've had ...
This is probably the best food we've had in Bend. Very well put together dishes. Sauces are not overpowering. The service is top notch and inconspicuous. The ambiance is terrific. If you like fine dining without feeling like your going out with people looking for fine dining, go to Ariana's.

Ariana was recommended to us by a family member after he heard that we were considering another restaurant for our anniversary dinner. Extremely happy that he referred is to Ariana because the food and experience was first class all the way around. I will always remember our dinner there.
