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.

One of few white linen restaurants with perfectly portioned entrees and, in our opinion, the best overall dining in Bend. Located in a restored cottage. Will definitely return!

Arianna is a wonderful restaurant with excellent, innovative food and fine wine. The restaurant is a bit loud and usually crowded. In the summer sitting outside is lovely.

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 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.

We celebrated my brother's birthday here. There was a lot of hype around Ariana being the top restaurant in Bend. It definitely met our expectations. Food was solid, wine list was outstanding and service was impeccable. The only negative is that it was really noisy. It would probably be fine for an intimate table of 2 to hold a conversation, but there were 6 of us at a round table so we felt like we had to yell to talk across the table. We will definitely be back again however, we had a lovely evening.
Ariana is a dining experience for special occasions, this time for us, our annual return to Bend. The food has a constant level of excellence, the wine should have a few more moderate choices on the list. Having returned from the Netherlands, we find the prices high in relation to comparative wines in Europe. That is not necessarily Ariana's fault, but it is reflected in their wine list pricing, as a result of the overpriced American wines in general. Finally, it might be a consideration to add sound dampening material to the dining room, as the loud conversations of other tables are just affecting the otherwise wonderful dining experience.

The tasting menu was amazing! It's pricey but worth every penny!
Can't be better~
I received a gift card for Christmas from my boss and was saving it for a special occasion. My boyfriend as mother was in town for his graduation, and with my mother and father, I booked a 5 person table and had the most wonderful dining experience. The service, the food, ambiance, everything was just perfect.

I had the tasting menu enjoying the ambiance and quiet out on the beautiful back patio next to the herb garden. It was an amazing dinner. As far as I can tell, this patio it is Bend's best kept secret. I heard great reviews about the food before going and was not disappointed there. I like that the tasting menu changes weekly, it feels like the chefs have fun with it and truly use what is in season. Thank you for a nice evening.
I had rainbow trout and my husband had salmon. We often trade in the middle and this time both of us were hesitant about trading. The caper sauce on the trout and the soy ginger on the salmon were both superb especially on fish that was prepared to perfection.
This is real fine dining.
Arguably Bend's principal answer to fine dining. It may be the best in all Oregon—it certainly is in Central Oregon! It has been for the past nearly twenty years consistently the finest table in Central Oregon. Tends to be a bit loud, but that is the patrons' propensity to shout across a table—even a table of four.... ——
Attentive, intuitive waiter, allowed the desired slow pace of our evening to appreciate and savor each beverage and course. Outstanding culinary experience.
Great food...great service.....NOISY NOISY NOISY
always great food at Arianas...always great service......but always one of the noisiest restaurants in town.....solution....book a 5 p.m .....ask to sit out on the front porch (if available, they are always asked for first).....sit out on the back outside seating area (no ambience, but at least it is remotely neutral on the noise).....but it is absolutely the best food in Bend! just get ready to yell!!!!!
The other night we decided at the last minute to have dinner at Ariana! What a wonderful evening. Beginning with the server, she was knowledgeable, welcoming, and dedicated to providing us with a great dining experience. Then came the meal and wine! I put the kitchen to the test in that I am on an elimination diet prescribed by my physician which prohibits dairy, gluten, legumes, as well as a number of high starch vegetables and high sugar fruits. Not only was I able to find offerings that fit my restrictions, I did not feel limited or deprived. Everything was fabulous! They even provided me with gluten free bread that was sumptuous. Prior to this, any gluten free breads I had eaten tasted like cardboard. My husband tried the gluten free bread and said he felt it was superior to their yummy traditional bread. If you are looking for pleasant surrounding, great service and fabulous food, look no further. But make a reservation!
Still the best restaurant in Bend.
The food and service is still the best in Bend and one of our favorite restaurants in the world.
Bend's Finest Restaurant
Ariana is our favorite restaurant anywhere and it never fails to impress. The food, ambience and service are always exceptional. Our dinner the very busy Saturday night of Memorial Day weekend was no different. Every appetizer, every dinner and every dessert for our party of five was a delight. Our favorite server, Kara Nickerson, again managed our dinner to perfection. Ariana herself unassumingly worked behind the bar and delivered dishes to tables. There is no other restaurant in Bend that comes close to Ariana.
Ariana is an outstanding experience, from the food to the impeccable service. Perfect for my birthday dinner, but we will come back for a more casual drop-in at the bar, which is first come, first serve seating.

Great place to spend for a special occasion. The prix fixe menu with the paired wines was foodie worthy. Very attentive servers. Nice ambiance in a restored home, very cozy. We would definitely come back again for more!

Everything at Ariana was FABULOUS. Best restaurant in Bend.!
Great food and service! The calamari appetizer was very tasty and I tried mushroom soup for the first time ever & it was truly memorable. My wife had the salmon which was outstanding & I had the short ribs which were very tasty. Only very slight downside was the noise level but that just could have been the crowd that night as it was a special sporting event weekend. A truly great birthday dinner celebration for my wife with excellent food!

The food was fantastic and the service was impeccable but it was so loud we couldn't even hear each other. We were a table of two in between many large tables that were talking robustly. It felt claustrophobic. I think sitting outside would have been nice but it was to cold.
