Excellent cuisine, fabulous service

Off the beaten track, but so pleasurable to get there. Scenic riverfront highway, country setting on a farm. Chef Martin, knows his kitchen. Elegant food, fine dining, and local sources. Excellent wine list. Small restaurant, so reserve. Seating at the counter is a treat, as you can view the... read more

My first time at this unusual restaurant. The original restaurant is in the old carriage shed with only seven tables and a counter with six or so seats facing the open kitchen. From the outside, it doesn't look like much, but it has an eclectic ambiance inside. We ate in the very recently opened farmhouse with its own rustic ambiance.... More

Ariana's offers fresh creatively prepared dishes, including vegan and gluten free, in a cozy rural setting. Reservations are recommended. Wine and beer are the alcoholic offerings. A warm and welcoming staff makes for an enjoyable dining experience.

The service, food, and atmosphere cant be beat. Prices are fair, portions were good. Sheppards pie was great as was the shrimp scampi and short ribs. We brought our own birthday cake and they were kind enough to put candles on the cake and serve.

This is the best restaurant in the Upper Valley! The food and service have been consistently superb the two, plus years we have dined there. The mushroom crepes, Chef Martin's clam chowder and the vegan shrimp curry are among our favorites, as well as the many specials we have enjoyed. Always a warm greeting and excellent service from the servers... More

The dining room was nice and the staff was friendly. The food portions are very small and pricey for what you get. Pretty tasty, but not impressed.

I had a wonderful steak with gorgonzola and, although they provided a steak knife, I never used it - my fork was sufficient. My wife had fish which was equally excellent. I see where they are expanding into the adjacent farmhouse so that they will have more capacity.

It has been almost a year since we have been back. Reason for not coming back service! The food is great. The food is always tasty well made, and at time worth the aggravating wait staff. Ariana's is a first class restaurant with dinner help. Do I need to say more? Please Please train the staff. All I'm looking for... More

We were disappointed. The food is pretty good but overpriced and way too precious. This is one of those laces where the presentation is more important than the food itself. The lobster ravioli had almost no lobster in it and the portions were very small for the high price tag. The dining room is nice, but there are much better... More

Ariana's continues to be our favorite restaurant for special occasions! Went there for our anniversary and reserved seats at the Chef's table! Watch Chef Martin and his staff work was amazing! I've never seen a calmer cooler chef in his kitchen even with every table filled! The food is awesome as is the staff! Chef Martin personally visits every table... More
