Ariana Ratings and Reviews

Ariana feeling a little to special for themselves in their pricing, and no dress code. Its one thing to pay a lot for a meal but to be seated next to someone in trainer shorts , t-shirts, Gap crew, patagonia fashionesta's is inexcusable on the restaurants part. If your looking for nice ambience, appropriate service, sophisticated food, this is a good spot in Bend, but just be warned for dinner the clientele needs to be told how to dress, or to go home and get a jacket , with slacks.

Great restaurant! The food was fantastic and the service was outstanding! Definitely need a reservation as the seating is limited but so worth the extra time and planning to ensure your place. Very lovely evening.

My husband and I recently went to Ariana to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our evening could not have been more perfect! The service was excellent - attentive but not intrusive. The atmosphere was very romantic and intimate and the food was amazing. We shared the calamari appetizer which was full of the flavors of Southern Italy. Then we had the carmelized onion soup - absolutely brilliant. It was so good we recommended it to the couple sitting next to us. My caprese salad was fresh and the tomatoes were obviously local as they were perfectly ripe and full of flavor. I ordered the scallops and my husband had the steak. Both were perfectly cooked. I keep using the word "perfect" but it is. I highly recommend Ariana for any special occasion.

This was our second time dining at Ariana, and we were not disappointed. This is a lovely restaurant in an old home--and it has the best food. Ariana is always full, and it is a good idea to get a reservation well in advance. The wait staff is well trained, the bar is good--and the food is just outstanding. We will definitely return the next time we are in Bend.

As usual we were not disappointed, we always have the chef's tasting and it was great! I have food allergies and the only item I couldn't have was desert, but the salted caramel chocolate pudding was perfect!
Will be back!!

We were in Bend for a quick vacation and stumbled Ariana . After a few days in Bend, we found out that this is the major go-to restaurant for special occasions and special it was. We tried the tasting menu with the wine pairing. This ended up being one of the best dinners we have ever had. A must if you go to Bend!

Ariana is the best food in Bend. The owners live upstairs and cook every single meal that comes out of the kitchen. The wait staff is wonderful. It is pricey, but it is absolutely worth it. I highly recommend doing the chef's tasting menu for a special occasion. Don't skip this restaurant!

If you're looking for a nice restaurant that isn't outrageously expensive, Ariana may be a good choice. However, if you have high expectations for fine dining you may be a little disappointed. Our entire meal, including dessert, was covered in salt. My boyfriend's risotto had a nice flavor, but was undercooked. My filet mignon was also tasty, but served medium-well as opposed to the medium I ordered. The meal was mostly pleasant, but did not live up to expectations. To me, fine dining is all about the details, and Ariana missed the mark.

Our visit to Ariana exceeded our expectations, which were high. The food was interesting, delicious, and beautifully presented. Everything was prepared perfectly and with obvious care. The service was exceptional, attentive without being intrusive, and our server was extremely knowledgeable about the menu offerings. We can't wait to return.

Amazing locally-inspired entrees and they offer a great selection of local Willamette Valley wines. Service was ok, nothing to rave about. I highly recommend their salmon and filet mignon, as well as their Baked Alaska dessert. I'd love to go back and try more of their aromatic cocktails if I'm ever in Bend again.

Ariana is a must for special occasions, date night. While it can be spendy, the food and service are top notch. Definitely make reservations well ahead as it's quite small inside and they book up fast. We had reservations, but opted to sit outside on the back patio, which was quite lovely and quiet. Our server was friendly and attentive. I am dairy free and the she was able to provide options for me. We look forward to our next visit!

Ariana has earned it's spot at the top. Great food, impeccable service, and overall a wonderful experience. I would like to see the menu varied a bit more, although I can understand wanting to keep the few staples like the pork chop, filet, and scallops. My filet was really good, but overall a little bit too saucy for how rare it was cooked. That is to say it was a little mushy without much in the way of texture contrast. You cannot beat the croquettes and sauce that come with the pork chop. Looking forward to seeing duck on the fall/winter menu hopefully.
One final note, they are extremely accommodating when it comes to reservations. I had noted that I would like an earlier slot if it became available and sure enough they called me to let me know they had a time open up earlier than my existing res. All of the staff there are awesome, friendly and knowledgeable.

Ariana is our favorite restaurant in Bend for special occasions. The food, drinks, service, and presentation are consistently outstanding. The ambiance is lovely, and it is quiet enough that you can actually carry on a conversation while dining. We're looking forward to our next visit!

Cara our wait host was excellent, so vibrant, attentive and darling personality. Really made the dinner a delightful affair. The food was beautifully presented and tasted even better than that! It was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend it.

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and chose Ariana for our last dinner on Saturday evening, before we left Oregon to come back to Pennsylvania this past Sunday. We started with the salmon tartare.. fantastic! The caprese was entirely too salty, but still enjoyable. I had the perfectly cooked scallops with a rich dungeness crab risotto. My husband had the salmon, which he typically doesn't order out -- and he loved it. For dessert we had the creme brûlée, which was perfect in every way. My husband's moscow mules were quite delicious and my Riesling complimented my seafood nicely. The service was wonderful- we had a great server who was super knowledgeable and very attentive to detail. Thanks, Ariana!

As this was our first visit, we tried the five-course tasting menu. Each dish was cooked to perfection, tastefully seasoned, beautifully presented. The staff were appropriately attentive without being overbearing. Wine pairings were well-chosen and complemented each dish. Highly recommended.
