We went to celebrate the twins' birthday, We felt kind of rushed, since salads arrived before we ordered appetizers, and the cocktails and wine arrived all at the same time. In a way, that was a good thing, since the meals were excellent, and left little room for appetizers (and, sadly, desserts). I'm not a big fan of live entertainment... More

High end restaurant. Food was excellent, surface top notch. No rush to get you out -- relax, take your time and enjoy your meal. Great for a romantic evening.

I have been to terrific restaurants all over the world, but this stuck in my head. I took my dad out for his 83 birthday. Mom passed away 3 years ago and he really had not been out for a really good dining experience since then. I made reservations and totally surprised him. He did not know that this place... More

This was recommended to us by our book club, so we visited today with 4 friends. It was really good - great surroundings, good waiters. And the food was just superb ! We all had something different & every one of us was delighted with their choice. The desserts were to die for & we could happily work our way... More

Arabella's restaurant in Winter Haven is widely known as the best restaurant in the area. The adjoining pizzeria has a tremendous menu as well. We just had the eggplant bruschetta which was a 5 star appetizer and followed by the best pizza I ever tasted!

I love Arabellas, and apparently most people do too since they own like half the block with their other restaurants/bar. This is a Five Star restaurant with Four Star prices. The waiters are very well versed in their knowledge of wines (My boyfriend has a tendency to test people on this...), and the food is always superb. They never cease... More

A surprise for this part of Florida. Just a little expensive but certainly worth it. Very nice atmosphere, great service and very well prepared meals. In the evening there is a piano player. Very cordial, takes requests. All in all, a very nice time was had by all. Great place for special occasions.

We were in Winter Haven and had seen good reviews for Arabella's, so we stopped for lunch. Unfortunately, the review were wrong. The service was good, I will give them that, however, the place was not very busy. When the food came it was a shock. Nothing had flavor, at least not the kind of flavor you expect from an... More

The food here is excellent! However, if you don't want to take long, don't eat here. Service is not slow, just long and drawn out. Great if you like this kind of stuff. Absolutely not for kids!
