A friend of mine was retiring and I assisted in making the restaurant reservations and dinner plans. I worked with Kyndra from the restaurant. She was outstanding to work with. She advised me how they could accommodate our group of about twenty people. We would be in a small private area off the main restaurant. She then worked with me... More

Both food and service were exceptional. Antipasto plate had a great cheese variety and the the meats were perfectly sliced. Entree was aged angus beef - almost fork tender and perfectly cooked. For a great upscale dinner in Winter Haven....THIS IS THE PLACE! Please patron and keep it going.

Absolutely everything is exquisite here; from the decor, to the ambiance, to the service to the excellent wine and food selections. I've never had a bad experience with this restaurant ever! It's a little pricey, but well worth every bit of it. We tend to go for special occasions such as Birthdays and Anniversaries as you feel spoiled when you... More

I had a beautiful bouquet of flowers delivered before we arrived and they had it sitting prominently on our table when we arrived. The ambiance is upscale, classy and first class for little Winter Haven, Fl. The service is... More

Not big on 5 Star reviews but Arabella Oz is the only place in Polk County that really tries to give you A5 star service not for the type of person on a budget service is great food is great nice to see a restaurant that is actually really trying to be a five star restaurant

The service and food does not get any better than this in Winter Haven and is among the best in Polk County, and if it's my vote alone, it's the absolute best!!! You cannot go wrong with you order! And the people are the nicest I have ever experienced. They treat you like family --- maybe even better some days!... More
