Charming restaurant

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

Locals brought us to the wonderful restaurant with an open kitchen where the magic happens. It was an amazing experience... The duck Confit, Penne Bolognese, Braised Boneless Short Rib and the Lamb Stew were made to perfection. We are New Yorkers and this place ranks way up there with the very best!!!... Local vegetables and meats made the meal..... Thank... More

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
