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

Ariana is a very attractively designed small restaurant in a converted house. The service is very professional, knowledgeable, and attentive. Gourmet food is delicious with a good variety. You can bring your own wine for a $20 corkage fee. Highly recommended for fine dining in Bend, OR

Without question this is the BEST restaurant in Bend. Such a warm charming atmosphere, the entire staff are incredible. The tasting menu is perfect for me as I eat here often and it gives you a nice variety change from regular menu.Susan at the bar makes the best cocktails and will even make special drinks to accommodate your personal taste....

I recently was sent a list of the best restaurants in Bend and was quite surprised at the rankings. Living in Bend and having the opportunity to eat at them all frequently, I thought a review was in order.:) Arianna's is truly the best dining establishment in Bend. It has an intimate setting, limited tables, incredible menu and the service... More

I spend a lot of time in Bend and dine out every evening. This is, hands down, the best place to have dinner. I dined five times in the last fifteen month and the food was consistently superb. It is located in a small home and the dining room, and the kitchen, are very small. In summer there is a... More

We were given a gift certificate for this restaurant and were eager to give it a try. After several futile attempts to get a reservation, I finally booked ahead a few weeks for a Thursday night, and got in. We were expecting something very special, but found the food to be just ordinary (we had the salmon) and the prices... More

Took my wife here for her birthday. Charming little restaurant in a converted house with super knowledgeable staff. To the point, quite possibly the best meal I've had in Bend...maybe anywhere. Yes, it was that good. Yes, it's pricey...but worth it, especially for special occasions. That's if you're lucky enough to snag a reservation.
