Valentines Dinner

This was my second time at Ariana, arguably Bend finest restaurant, for their Valentines set menu dinner. The quality of the main course was top notch, but perhaps, as bit small on the portion size for the price paid. The desert was a big disappointment and the main reason for only 3 stars.

We've been trying to get a reservation here for eight years (yes...eight years!) finally I had a little advance notice before making the trip from Portland and secured a reservation. I have to admit I approached the restaurant with trepidation. I feared after all these years of longing I'd be disappointed. Located in the funky close in west side of... More

Finally got to try this well regarded spot and now we understand why.... Everything about the entire dining experience that surrounded the great food was well planned and delivered. Staff was attentive and competent but not intrusive. The room is warm and cozy but not crowded...even when all the tables were full. Between us we had scallops, filet mignon, and... More

One of the best restaurants in Bend. Amazing food, cozy atmosphere, great service. Pricy, but, for special occasions well worth it.

We went here to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary. Reservations were required, and we were glad to have them. By that afternoon it was too busy even to pull our reservation in by 30 minutes! This is a small intimate restaurant with a high staff/customer ratio. Despite having preselected our menu, we switched at the last minute to a splurge... More

OMG! Where to start ...maybe at the beginning. The appetizers are plentiful, but my favorites are the carpaccio and the sicillian style calamari. The roasted beet salad is my favorite, and for dinner(s) I've had the New York steak with frites, the scallops served over risotto, and the short rib. All are fabulous. You can't make a bad choice here.... More

To begin, Ariana herself made my martini! The restaurant is located in a charming, comfortable house. The service was exemplary! It's always a plus when a server greets a guest my name, and it happened here. Regarding the server, he was a seasoned, professional who offered helpful insights into the menu, and he served the meal with seamless and unobtrusive... More

This was our first time at Ariana and we loved it. Outstanding food, service and ambiance in a charming cottage. The menu was great as well; everyone had difficulty making final decisions but we all loved what we ordered. We were a group of three foodie couples and between us, we had five different entrees, two different appetizers, three different... More

We visited on the recommendation of two friends and Ariana lived up to its reviews. We had excellent and varied salads for our first course, including beets, house salad, and the burrata, which came with grilled peaches, arugula, balsamic and the cheese. This was the clear first course winner. The mains included the scallops, which were reported outstanding, two pasta... More
