Ariana's keeps getting better - and why

Chief Martin has *a model that works* for the customers, and for him and his team: fresh ingredients, dishes cooked to order, without overwhelming sauces of seasonings - plus a welcoming atmosphere and good service.

Bottom line, the food is delicious, prepared from scratch, and presented with care. The pork dumplings and filet mignon were flavorful and cooked exactly as requested. Portions are just right. The atmosphere is so-so, reminiscent more of a cafe than high-end restaurant, and since the kitchen is open to the dining area, the kitchen noise level is a tad high.... More

Weave enjoyed this dining spot for the past five years and have never been disappointed ! That is a big statement considering the multiple visits. Martin and his staff are all on board to exceed your expectations. They are a small chef owned hands on every plate operation ! Martin's skills are second to none in running a year round... More

Chef Martin is a master of his craft. The menu always has a new treat to savor! Many of the ingredients are locally sourced, supporting our local farm community as well. The staff is always cheerful and pleasant. One of our favorite restaurants!

From the outside it looks a bit like you are entering the chicken coop next to the farmhouse but be brave and go inside. This modestly decorated restaurant is as good as many restaurants with big reputations and expensive menus. Not inexpensive here, but extremely reasonable given the astonishing sophistication and complexity of flavors in food that is not prissy... More

We were in Woodstock, VT for the weekend and had heard about Ariana's from a friend. After driving 5 1/2 hours from home, we weren't sure if we wanted to drive another 50 mins for dinner, but decided to go. Good decision! This restaurant is a real treat. We are at the bar, overlooking the kitchen which was really interesting... More

We went here recently on a Thursday and we were the only ones there. I guess the season slows down after the summer. However, the menu was very full of choices including lots of specials of the day. It was hard to pick out what to eat as so many things sounded delicious. I can see why others come back... More
