As good as it gets

Truly exceptional experience every time we've attended. The staff couldn't be more welcoming, the food is absolutely wonderful, and Chef Martin makes a point of talking to each and every guest. Without a shadow of a doubt, my favourite place to eat.

Had a wonderful meal here with family whist visiting Vermont on a visit from the UK. Service was second to none. Quality of food was excellent and staff very attentive. Would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to all, especially those looking for a quiet meal in intimate surroundings. Felt as if I was eating in a favourite relative's dining room.Family friendly.... More

We had a wonderful meal to celebrate a birthday. Really a great place for a special meal with locally sourced food. Casual but elegant and intimate atmosphere in what I believe was an old farm building. Everything from the appetizers to the dessert to the atmosphere to the service was perfect. We had the sweetbreads and the mussels for our... More

We sat at the bar looking into the kitchen!!!! What a treat... The Chef talked and visited with us throughout dinner and watching the kitchen staff and the chef make our meals was great. Of course, every dish was delicious... Martin, the chef recommended some dishes. Appetizers were delicious, (all the food from the day menu, which he changes every... More

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 kitchen in operation, and it is very efficient, and clean! Well... 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.
