  • "Excellent salads, perfectily seared scallops, but poorly seasoned cannelloni and carpaccio. Service good, but slow to bring wine at beginning of meal."

  • "Service and food is always 1st class. Big city dining experience in a quint small town restaurant. Can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "The dining room atmosphere is very nice.The service is extremely attentive, personable and enjoyable. The bone marrow appetizer, tasty. Scallop entrée, unbelievable. Filet Mignon, cooked to perfection, the best I've ever had. The dinner portions are just right. We ended with two phenomenal desserts and a hot coffee drink. Excellent. We were there until about 7:00pm. It was a relaxing experience and we did not feel rushed. The restaurant was starting to get very busy by then and the noise level was going up. Certainly not to an uncomfortable level. But, if you want quiet and intimacy, I would get there early. A very enjoyable new experience for us. We will be back soon."

  • "One of the best taste sensations in Bend. Can not miss on going there. There is good food, then there is great food with excellent taste which is what you will find at Ariana."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "We tried the chefs tasting menu and while the food was wonderful the overall , I could not carry on a conversation without almost screaming at my dinner partner and could not hear the waitperson describing the menu without her having to lean into the table. She was attentive and our service was well timed."

  • "We had dinner out with friends for my Birthday; i was made to feel extra special by our waiter(Ron) I believe was his name for this occasion. Everyone at our table thought their dinner was terrific, in fact the couple we were with said," this is the best fish we have had since we moved to Bend, over six years ago." Three out of four dinner guests had the fresh Halibut. We definitely will make a point to eat here again. I had a wonderful time and dinner for my Birthday! Thanks"

  • "If you need to take your wife out for a great meal in a romantic setting, you can not go wrong with Ariana. The food is superb and the variety is unique. The staff is excellent and did a good job remembering to include a candle with our desert, as well as writing Happy Birthday on the plate, per my online reservation instructions. A first class experience that I would recommend to all."

  • "You have to plan ahead to eat at Ariana. Reservations in advance. Sometimes they hit the mark and sometimes a tad disappointing. Our food was excellent this time but the service was lacking. Our server was not trained for this level of restaurant. Had to ask for routine items. Awkward delivering and placing dishes. Wasn't very subtle about checking when to clear a dish etc. Tables can be too close if neighboring guests are loud. This was the case last night.. Want to feel a little special at this type of restaurant. We have in past but not last night."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "I had previously been meaning to try this restaurant and we finally made it for a birthday dinner. Our group was not disappointed, this was by far the best dinner I had had in town and the ambiance was beautiful. I highly recommend the tasting menu, every course was outstanding and our server was wonderful. My only regret is that I wish I had tried Ariana sooner!"

  • "celebrated our 48 th wedding anniversary. Best meal in a very long time. Husband had a filet and cooked to perfection. I had the scallops, yum! Dessert plate , written in chocolate said "Happy 48 Anniversary". Nice finish to a very enjoyable evening. Music was enjoyable, not too loud. Will Return. This was a gift from daughter and husband."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Food great, service great (acknowledged celebrating a birthday and comped dessert), prices on high side, portions small, tables to close together, noise unexpetedly high."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "drinks were good but expensive, small portion of scallops but the other two dishes were large, flan was best I've ever had - good service"

  • "The food was excellent and the atmosphere was cozy. Prices were a bit spendy. Good for a special occasion."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our Valentine's chef's special dinner. 5 course meal of so many wonderful and tasty treasures. Well worth every penny!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I went with my boyfriend over Valentine's Day and it was wonderful. Our waitress was charming and attentive, the food was impeccable (I highly recommend the duck), and the restaurant had a wonderful, candlelit yet modern atmosphere."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "This restaurant felt like a real 'High-class' establishment, and as a lower/middle class person I can say the atmosphere with the small list of choices really feels beyond my knowledge. It was pretty loud, but I felt out of place in such a nice restaurant."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We came in the night after Valentine's (a month and a half previous, I'd tried to get a reservation for the 14th. No dice). Turns out day after was an even better decision. Not too crazy, just right pace and noise level, though this place leans quiet anyway. Had the Valentine's tasting menu. Insane. Easily the best dinner I've had in Bend, ever, and the best meal in recent memory. It was all good, but the soup might've been my favorite. Celery bisque with a white truffle oil or cream, with a perfectly seared scallop topped with just the perfect bit of caviar and scallions. Amazing. Service was also impeccable, which was nice to see. Drinks were on point. All around fantastic."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I'll start by saying this was a very good meal. Best steak I've had in a couple years. However, considering how much we paid, I would say that it was overpriced. Compared to the other meals I've spent over $200 on for my wife and I, this probably ranks at the bottom. My filet mignon was great, but the other courses including the dessert were average. My wife's entre was also good, but not great. If I was to spend this much again on a meal, I would not go here. I have enjoyed much cheaper meals more than this one. Maybe we need to give their regular menu a shot though, as we went on Valentines Day which had a set menu. If this meal was about half of what we paid, it would have been more appropriate."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Excellent food, service and ambience. Possiu one of the best meals I have ever had. The chef clearly has an art for combining flavors. The beet salad is amazing. The scallops with dungeness risotto was something to savor. We will be coming back."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We drove all the way from Montana having made our reservation a month ahead of time. We had been thinking about this meal for almost two years (since we had first eaten there) and were NOT disappointed this second time! Can't wait to get back to Bend again for more fabulous dining!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Arianna hit on all eight cylinders! Our server was great and the food was exceptional. The wine we chose fit the meal perfectly and the pace of the meal could not have been better. Thank you for a very special night!!!!"

  • "Ariana is a beautiful place to be and to eat....they always exceed our expectations!!"
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "From the moment you enter the restaurant; you are made to feel welcome. The fire lures you to a cozy table. Great cocktail menu with both nostalgic and new adult refreshments to choose from. The entrees are so appealing that one is torn between what to order. The passion of the owners and staff is obvious. They believe in what they ard doing and how to do it will class and charm. This is now my favorite restaurant in Bend"
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "We ate at Ariana's for a special occasion a couple of years ago and had one of the best meals we had ever had. We were almost afraid to go back because we weren't sure it could live up to our first experience there. We weren't disappointed, everything - the appetizer, salad, main dish, dessert, wine, ambience, service - was outstanding. I would definitely call it the best restaurant we've ever been to!"
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "The whole experience was excellent. Elegant and romantic surroundings, incredible food. The scallop and crab rizotto was even better than I remember. Our server was very attentive. Also the lava cake with salted caramel ice cream is a perfect match with the 25 year old port."
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "Dined here last week for my husband's birthday. Stephanie was a great waitress, the filet and pork shank were amazing. The beet salad and house sale were great. The shrimp and grits were tasty. OMG the butterscotch pudding. Already planning our next trip back there."

  • "We do almost all of our special occasion dinners at Ariana and always enjoy it. Can get a bit noisy when full."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "We have been trying to get back to Ariana for several months, but our lack of planning meant that last minute reservation were not available. Finally we got in last Friday night and it was worth the wait. We had great Service throughout our dinner and the food was terrific as always. The noise level was slightly higher than I remember, but it was Friday night and people were enjoying themselves. We feel that Ariana is one of the most consistently good resturaunts in Bend. We will be back."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Bend is a foody town with a number of very good restaurants. Ariana stands out as the very best by a good margin. We have dined at Ariana a number of times and have never been disappointed. Last Saturday night, each of our dishes was outstanding -- the spicey calamari was delicious as was my carrot soup, done to perfection. Our main courses likewise were wonderful -- scallops over a dungenus crab risotto was spectacular as was my duck breast. Service -- outstanding. For a special occasion or anytime you want a marvelous meal in Bend, Ariana is the place to go. Given how popular Ariana is with locals, reservations are a must."

  • "We went to Ariana to use a wedding present/ gift certificate. It was our first time there and we were very impressed. Great food, friendly staff, and nice atmosphere. For us, definitely a place we will return to for special occasions ( a bit out of our typical price range). The dessert , the italian pudding with salted caramel sauce is a must get! And i'm usually a chocolate fan."

  • "We went for our anniversary . The food was delicious, service great. It's a tight fit, as the room is small."

  • "I ordered several different items for a dinner. The server asked in what order I would like them, and they came to the table in that order and moments from the grill or oven. Presentation of each was a delight. Restaurant filled as the evening went on, and became a bit noisy, but food was worth it!"

  • "We had a "doble" birthday dinner with five of us attending. Food, service, and ambiance was great as always. We always enjoy this restaurant for special occasions and when out of town guests visit us."
