Diner Reviews
  • "The tasting menu was excellent with decent wine pairing. Service was outstanding (we had a reservation) and very friendly. Very courteous, succinct, knowledgeable, and friendly. My few small complaints were that the wine offerings were fairly pedestrian and the markup was overly zealous. Cocktail menu was great and reasonable. The tasting menu was all carniverous, which is only a complaint in summer when it is easy to open with some greens/vegetables. Don't get me wrong, all the dishes were outstanding (especially the mushroom soup with scallop) but diversity challenges the pallet. Overall it is a pretty amazing restaurant with great people working there."

  • "One of the best dining experiences I've ever had. Stellar service. Wonderful food. Just a great combination of interesting food and each item delivered on its promise."

  • "This remains our favorite restaurant in Bend. Every dish is beyond outstanding. The prices are reasonable for the value delivered and the service is superb. A must visit restaurant!"

  • "We are never disappointed at Ariana, but this was our most memorable experience! A generous gift certificate from friends prompted us to be even more creative with our menu choices. We relied heavily on our server, Ron, who we learned was a former NYC sommelier. He was outstanding and gave us several suggestions for each course with wine pairings. The peach bruschetta was excellent and flavorful, as was the seasonal corn bisque. Indian-spiced quail was perfectly prepared, and the scallop and Dungeness crab risotto was superb. The wine selections were right on. An almond cake to die for rounded out the meal. Ariana provides great value for this level of cuisine. We'll be back again soon!"

  • "This is our third visit to Ariana. We come to the Bend area once a year and it always seems to follow on our wedding anniversary. We look forward to eating here because the dining experience is typically memory-worthy. The chef prepared a fresh corn bisque with truffle oil that was out of this world good. My mouth waters just thinking about it. My husband chose the Filet Mignon....cooked to perfection. I chose one of their specials which included jumbo prawns, fingerling potatoes and sausage. It was quite tasty but wasn't the best thing I've ever eaten there. I was disappointed that the waiter didn't ask if we were celebrating anything; even though I mentioned it we were celebrating our anniversary when I made the reservation."

  • " Very good food with a creative menu. Only negative would be that it's a VERY small restaurant and as a party of 5 we were crowded at the table. If you get their delicious home made ice cream for dessert- get at least 3 scoops because they are " melon ball sized"!"

  • "We have dined at Ariana a number of times mostly on special occasions. The service and food are fantastic. As in most of the reviews it is noisy when full of diners, which is mostly every night. In spite of the noise, we would still recommend this restaurant to anyone."

  • "We celebrated our 30th anniversary here and couldn't have had a more delicious dinner! Everything was perfect...our table on the pretty back patio, the wine recommendation, the great service and the best food we've had in Bend! We'll be back soon"

  • "We heard about this restaurant from a Bend local that said it would be a good spot for an anniversary. The restaurant was a converted house w a small patio in the front, about a dozen or so tables inside, and a small bar area. Our server, Cara, was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. The scallops and canelloni we're both amazing as was the molten chocolate cake. We couldn't have asked for a better dining experience for our anniversary."

  • "We love Araianas! My wife Quinn and I frequeny this establisment a few times a year and always have what we believe to be the best dinning experiance in Bend. Exceptional service and fit for a "last" meal."

  • "Out of town guests, took them for fine food and that is what we got! Very good on all accounts, on the expensive side by the time you add your soup/salad/dessert/ beverage. Not for big appetites."

  • "My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Ariana. We could not have asked for a more special experience! The waiter was knowledgeable and attentive, the cocktails and wine were top-notch. The food, however, is the real winner. The flavor combinations, locally sourced ingredients, and portion sizes were just perfect. A truly amazing meal. The only difficulty was the noise level when we first arrived (for an 8:45 pm reservation). The sweet cottage is quite small, so when the dinner service is full, the room is very loud. We could hardly hear the other person, or the waiter explaining the chef's specials."

  • "My wife & I along with our 4 children celebrated a big birthday. The service was impeccable, and we have eaten at Some of the finest restaurants around the world. The food was great. Bend is known for its craft brewery scene, Ariana takes It to the next level. Highly recommended."

  • "This is the first salmon tartare I have tasted and it was exquisite. For a main course I had fresh halibut set upon a tomato rice dish. Sea beans were served atop the entree. I had never heard of -- let alone tastes -- sea beans. They were delightful. A thoroughly enjoyable meal. It was one of the best meals I had in our seven-day trip to Oregon."

  • "We went again for a birthday celebration and were not disappointed. The Chef's Tasting Menu is a great treat and the wine pairing can be added at a reasonable price. We've never had poor service, though we particularly like the server we had in February. That meal was certainly 5 stars! I have recommended this restaurant to friends and their reviews are also always high."

  • "What a great experience. If you are every in Bend, this place is a must. Service, food and ambiance our all great. We had the Chef's special which was a five course meal with a different spin of 4 items off the menu with the owner changing up the dishes and a wonderful dessert to top it all off. We loved it, you will too."

  • "First time dining here. Very much a special occasion dining spot. Staff was very attentive and the food was unique. Made us feel special for our anniversary."

  • "Great dining experience. Food was not only good but original. (Don't like being served something that could be done at home). Flavours were there. Even the carpaccio, pretty common for this type of restaurant, was prepared with interesting sauces/garnishes that made it sooo good. One small complaint; it was very noisy so not your quiet romantic place. Would go back."

  • "My wife and I went to Ariana's for our wedding anniversary meal. We were looking for something special and we found it here. The service was excellent, our server Destiny was excellent, attentive and courteous. The food was awesome in each course. This is definitely "fine dining", a very European style, no rush, no pile it high sell it cheap ethic here. Great for a special occasion"

  • "My wife and I have a restaurant in Bend that we love and at which we celebrate special occasions. After this visit, Ariana's now fits that description. The service and food were excellent. If there was one negative (and it's not a biggie), the Dessert menu was not as great as everything else. But it was fine and the one dessert we chose still very good."

  • "Just about everything on the menu was or could be prepared gluten free, including all the desserts, so for this Celiac this was a dream! The staff are super aware of allergy sensitivities, especially gluten intolerant and made this dining experience a genuine pleasure. The food and service were outstanding, although it was a pretty noisy when the place was full."

  • "First impressions. Greet at door friendly. Offered seating on Patio or inside. We took a look at outside rear patio, I was surprised they would even suggest for dinner. Verrrry casual. Works for 10 barrel but not here for dinner. Inside option was a table for 2 between kitchen and patio. High traffic area. There were 2 other couples at 5:30 eating and several tables for 2 open. We had reservations and finally got moved to another table after " conference " with staff. When we left after an fantastic dinner and service, tables for 2 were still open. Only flaw of evening. Felt like we were asking for the moon."

  • "Four for dinner 7:30. Husband asked for filet well done it came out med. Rare. Sent back and came back sliced up and still very pink inside. I had pork piccata with fingerling potatoes and an egg. Piccata great potatoes and egg cold. Salads good, bone marrow appetizer good. Wine list okay. Service was snooty. I think they must be big fish in little pond and they are getting careless. Almost feel like by 8:45 when all this transpired maybe the platers were tired and chef and owner had gone home. Nobody paying attention to what was coming out of the kitchen."

  • "Ariana enhanced our 42nd anniversary with delicious food, a delightful setting, a darling waitperson, and it was a special evening all around. Kudos to the Chef for a perfect filet mignon==and great scallops. My husband wished there were a couple more, only 3 was a little slight. He loved the calamari (ugh :) and we both had an Ariana salad and it was fresh and cooling. We didn't order dessert with our coffee, but the dear waitress brought us one to go since we were celebrating and still in love. That was special! All in all, as I said, made for a great evening! We'll return and bring guests, to be sure. I highly recommend Ariana! Thank you for putting love into your wonderful place."

  • "My sister in-law recommended Ariana, and she was right. I decided to fly up and surprise my wife, who is spending the summer in Bend at her sister's home, for our 21st anniversary. Boy, was she ever surprised. I took her to Ariana and we had a most memorable evening. Absolutely everything was beautifully prepared and presented. We are both outstanding cooks and Ariana did not disappoint. This is a very special restaurant! Highly recommended."

  • "A special occasion dinner for us, we dined at Ariana on the recommendation of a local couple who knew what they were talking about. An incredible dinner for each of us - start to finish. Amazing food, service an atmosphere. Hard to find that combo with extraordinary everything and without bein pretentious. Can't wait to return to Bend so we can eat here again!"

  • "Ariana is an exceptional dining experience. The service is warm and personal from the moment you enter. In the middle of our anniversary dinner for 2 we had friends show up and the staff amiably moved us to a larger table so they could join us. Both my wife and ordered the specials for the evening and were delighted with the excellent quality and presentation of both. Our server, Ron, took extra care and relocated our meal and wine to the new table. It is no surprise this restaurant was selected to present at the James Beard institute in NY."

  • "I have wandered around a good hunk of the globe and had the good fortune to have eaten on some of the places touted as the world's best. I can honestly say Ariana could be dropped into any great city on the globe and it would still stand out. The attention to detail, the quality of the food and the joyous vibe combine to make a truly exceptional dining experience. I'm quite aware of how fortunate we are to have Ariana in our home stomping grounds. "
