My husband and I were lucky enough to get one of their 8 tables for dinner one night while staying at the Lyme Inn (wonderful!). The chef personally spoke with us and came up with an awesome dinner for my husband who has a severe food allergy. Everything was absolutely delicious and well presented. The servers were friendly and well-informed.... More

Our friends brought us here and were excited to share their new discovery with us...it did not disappoint! Maybe a dozen tables, if that, with an open concept to be able to see into the prep/kitchen area. I had the harvest salad, the braised ribs which melted on the plate...didn't need to use a knife...and the cheesecake with an apricot... More

Wonderful food in a pleasant rural setting. This was truly one of the best restaurant experiences we've had. Highly recommended.

Could you move to my hometown? This is an A++ restaurant. Fresh, local ingredients are a staple of the meal. We were "blown-away" by the quality of the food and creativity of the preparations. Never did we think that Oxford, NH would have a gem of this quality. All you camp parents, book your reservations while visiting the kiddos at... More

Ariana's Restaurant offers gourmet food in a bucolic country setting. Don't let the outside fool you. The restaurant is small and the kitchen is open for viewing. Don't try to get in without a reservation. Everything is freshly prepared using locally grown ingredients. The staff is always willing to accommodate food problems. It's definitely worth the drive - a few... More

Not our first time here, but excellent as always. The lamb risotto was a special tonight and it was very tasty. My wife had the blackened scallops and they were the most tender we've ever tasted. Pear upside-down gingerbread with sea salt caramel gelato for dessert, drizzled with honey. Just perfect. Everything is seasoned perfectly, never salty or over-bearing. The... More

While I note that some find this restaurant in an implement barn a problem, we thought it charming. Preserving the architectural elements of the original building and adapting it to dining space (however limited) was a positive aspect of the place. We also appreciated the attempt to use wholesome, seasonal and sustainable foods. So, quality of ingredients was generally good,... More

I had the great pleasure to dine at Ariana's two weeks ago, and I can't stop talking about the meal! My sister and I decided to share a few small dishes; we had the warm spinach salad, which gave me a new appreciation for feta cheese. This feta was smooth and mild, not the normally overly-salty variety. Next, we shared... More

Ariana's has good food and absolutely excellent service! I would have given the restaurant five stars except for the following: the parking lot smells like a feed lot, the place is the size of a matchbox, the floor plan is possibly the worst I've ever seen being made from an old barn and thus having the capacity for about five...

I have eaten at Ariana's a few times. Every meal was delicious, with attention to quality ingredients as well as taste. Always a warm welcome. Here is my big peeve: All the times I had eaten there before was in the warmer months when it was light out. When I was there in January of this year, the lighting was... More
