Diner Reviews
  • "I've been to this restaurant several times, and my single complaint is that the noise level is too high for normal conversation, at least at several of the tables I've been seated. Food & service are excellent, however, I won't go back if I want to spend an evening with guests due to the difficulty in carrying on a conversation at normal levels."

  • "We had not been there before and were quite pleased with the whole staff. We were treated in a very professional and congenial way. The menu choices were unusual and very appetizing. The wine list was exceptional as well as the bar list. We were given a special recognition of our celebration."

  • "This was an outstanding dining experience for us. We had held off eating here for years because we had heard that while it was good, it was also very noisy. Finally we had to try it. Got there at opening time to get ahead of the crowd and noise and it worked. The noise level was comfortable for the first hour and a half. They also have some outdoor tables which should be less noisy. But the food makes it all worth it. And the waiter was the best server I can remember having. Friendly, informative and very helpful with food and wine selection. For a memorable night out, you cannot do better than Arianna."

  • "I read about Ariana on the internet, and everything I read was right on. The food was amazing, the restaurant is darling (in an old house)--and our table was ready right when it was supposed to be. This restaurant does not overbook--so important. It is absolutely necessary to have a reservation--and this restaurant is worth it. We had a wonderful evening."

  • "The food was outstanding. The best I have had in Bend. The presentation was simple , but beautiful. There were four of us and every one was really happy with his/her choice and all thought it was a memorable dining out experience. When eating out we all wanted something we don't cook at home and this food was over the top in every way. The service was also exceptional and our server,Bosten, was very friendly and helpful without being intrusive or pushy as some servers can be when trying too hard. It was interesting watching the servers all doing their work in the small area of the restaurant. They all seemed to just flow around each other and it worked perfectly .They seemed happy in their work and that is a good sign."

  • "We were in Bend for my birthday weekend. Ariana's was recommended to us by friends who dined there recently We enjoyed the Chefs Sampler w the wine pairings and were very pleased. Each course was delicious and their presentation equally outstanding. Our waiter was very attentive and everyone in the restaurant looked like they were having a wonderful dining experience. We will be back on our next trip to Bend."

  • "Ariana - the cook's wife's name, though she also cooks - is exceptional in all respects. Fabulous food and very professional, competent service staff. A relatively small menu, but the four that our group had were all gems, especially the short ribs and the scallops. The bone marrow appetizer was unique and delicious. As well as the Sicilian sauteed calamari. Wow! We'll be back."

  • "Consistently the best food, ambience and service in Bend. It is our go to place for all dining occasions, whether romantic, fun or simple week night dinner. The noise level does get high during peak dining hours making conversations difficult. But that is true all over town. Ariana, Andres, Susan and Glenn have put Bend on the map with their culinary talent. If you are a local and haven't been there, you've missed the best in town. If you are visiting and want a special night out, this is where you want to go."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "I enjoy cooking, so when I go out to eat I want imaginative food that is more complex than what I make at home. Ariana's chef is talented, imaginative, and makes great use of the available local fresh ingredients. We now know to make our reservation as soon as we book our trip to Bend - can't wait until we get there or they are full! And with good reason."

  • "Overall, Ariana's is the BEST restaurant in Central Or. bar none and as you can see, we gave it an outstanding rating on everything. We always enjoy dining here and I usually order their scallops over risotto which I had the other night. Yesterday, I wasn't feeling so well as something didn't settle with my dinner. My husband had the halibut and was fine. I am only mentioning this so that the restaurant might check to see if anyone else had a problem with the scallops as it is one of their most popular dishes. We will definitely dine there again but probably not have scallops again. As I stated before, it was a lovely evening, a delicious meal and it was our 60th wedding anniversary so we wanted to do something special."

  • "This popular local restaurant was packed on a Wednesday night because the food is excellent and service impeccable. If the noise level had not been so high we might have called it the perfect evening. Next time I will ask for outdoor seating. Highly recommend this top notch restaurant."

  • "We were a party of four seated outside in the garden for dinner. We were promptly seated, given menus and the specials for the evening. Our drinks arrived in minutes and we continued to have an outstanding dinner experience. The food was delightful to look at and wonderful to eat. The portions were just right! Every one of us was fully content with our orders and the compliments flowed regarding the specific menu items we had ordered. Needless to say, our plates were clean...from our appetizers to the dessert. Highly recommend Ariana's to everyone who wants a first class culinary experience. My favorite restaurant in Bend!!"

  • "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."

  • "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"!"
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "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"
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "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."

  • "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"
