Ariana Ratings and Reviews
Ariana is an amazing restaurant. We visit Bend every year for the film festival and a mini family reunion and always include a dinner at Ariana. The service is outstanding and the food is absolutely the best. Servers are polite and professional. This is not a low price restaurant but it is worth every penney!
Fairly tight quarters but very nice restaurant. The food was amazing and the waitstaff was very good, though our waitress probably wouldn't win the Miss Congeniality award. We suspected perhaps it was because we weren't the biggest spenders in the world, but maybe it was just not a good night for her. Still, we enjoyed ourselves very much and the chef even sent out a small bonus dish for us.
Definitely a favorite in Bend! We save Ariana for special occasions. Last year for our anniversary it was outstanding. We had the older gentleman with glasses as our waiter. It was fine dining at its best! This year the first guy who looked for our reservation when we arrived, blurted out..."You're early". (It was about 8 minutes early.) The gal who took over, was very professional and seated us right away. Our waiter was efficient but not much of a personality. Definitely needs to warm up and smile. The noise level when we first arrived was off the charts loud and we had trouble hearing each other at the table. It got better by the time we left. It was also extremely warm in the room. It wasn't the amazing experience that we had the first time. But we'd absolutely go back again and again. I don't think you can get better food in Bend!
By far our favorite restaurant in Bend, OR! We had a delicious dinner and our wait person, Ben, was extremely helpful and cordial. A fun time was had by all. I ordered the Braised Short Rib with Sweet Potato Purée. It was so delicious. Just perfectly flavored and seasoned food. Love this restaurant all the way around!
The food was truly memorable (Chef's tasting), beautifully presented, wonderfully served. Just the right amounts, perfectly paced. I completely enjoyed the meal.
A quite loud large group seated adjacent to us was the only flaw in the evening, since their choice of dinner discussion topics wasn't very pleasant (really, no one needs to hear about your health issues...) and was difficult to ignore.
I travel a lot and dine all over the world at wonderful restaurants and there are no better than Ariana It is truly the Jewel of Bend. I've never had a less than perfect dish...always with surprises. They are also seriously gluten free, which is important to my best friend. Whether you just drop by for a glass of wine and an entrée or you treat yourself to the always amazing tasting menu....you will not be disappointed. The staff is always knowledgeable about all the dishes and their preparation and earnestly friendly. The cottage ambiance is cozy and welcoming. No the least bit pretentious. You will not be disappointed by any meal at Ariana.
Everything was fabulous!! Food was delicious with creative entrees and appetizers. Cocktails were perfect with an extensive wine list. Service was impeccable!! We went for our Anniversary and everyone there made it extra special. We will definitely recommend it to all our friends and family. We'll be back soon m!
Our server was fantastic. My wife has very difficult dietary needs and our server went to great efforts to accomodate her needs. My scallops and fresh crab risotta was to die for. We certainly enjoyed our experience and I have recommended to many friends since we were there.
We had heard so many good things about Ariana but were not impressed with our experience. The waiter was less than friendly until the time dropped off the bill. The menu was very weak in regards to variety. The salad was small and tasteless. The waiter didn't seem to want to help make changes to the entree for my wife and seemed put off.
Such amazing food! Each dish was so well balance with flavors. I have never eaten a more perfect scallop. Soup was divine and was the calamari appetizer. Loved this restaurant and will definitely be back. They were also very accommodating with my gluten allergy.
One of the best meals I've ever eaten. Gluten-free options galore. Helpful , patient and informative staff. Desserts were outstanding. Everything about this restaurant is very classy. The noise level was a bit loud at first but then things settled down. One of the best restaurant experiences in Bend.
Really one of the nicest restaurants in Bend. From the linen tablecloths, excellent and seasonal menu, great wine list and high level of service. There are some really nice restaurants in Bend but, in our opinion, Arianna's is the best
A bit noisy because it's small, it used to be a home. Nice patio area, but that closes in the winter so seating might be a bit limited then.
Server we enjoyed, Ron, really provides a high level of expertise explains the menu and wine list. A real gem.
Any time I pass through Bend (4-5 x per year) I always make sure I have reservations at Ariana. This past weekend we spent two nights in Bend and visited Ariana both evenings. The food is fantastic, the wait staff very friendly and the menu has many great choices as well as the tasting menu which is usually our default. My wife and I find the Ariana to be one our favorite restaurants as the food is consistently good and the overall value cannot be beat.
Went to Arina for my birthday celebration. My husband and I have eaten here in the past so we brought 4 others friends this time. They loved EVERYTHING we ordered from 1st course to dessert. The words used were amazing, exquisite......we all wish there's an Ariana in Portland!
