    Arielle's never disappoints. This was our fourth visit, which pretty much speaks for itself. The food is top-notch, the service is attentive (although quite slow this visit, which generally is not an issue, anyway), and the ambience is delightfully old world.

    It must have been an off day for the chef. My daughter and I order the Linguine in White Clam Sauce. The pasta was only warm and rubbery for both of us, and the portions were small. Usually the food is great here. We will give them another try in the near future... hoping this was just a bad day.

    We searched on-line for restaurants near Sellersville where we might dine prior to a show at the Sellersville Theater. We were very pleased to find Arielle's. It was a charming Inn. The menu was further complemented by numerous specials. Everything was delicious with top notch service. We will definitely return and also recommend to others.

    Took my sweetheart here for Valentine's day. This is our third trip here in the last year and I felt compelled to give these folks a little recognition. The food is really good. The menu is a little eclectic, but hits all the major beats that anyone could want. The atmosphere is outstanding and ranks very well with much higher priced places. Can't wait for warmer weather so that we can dine outdoors again. We have enjoyed all of our trips here immensely and always look forward to going back. Can't say that about many places. Great job guys! Keep it up!

    Had a wonderful experience @ Arielle's. Great and attentive staff . Food presentation and quality was exceptional, timing was un-rushed and comfortable, My wife and i shared Clams Casino and were probably some of the best we have ever had. My wife had the Scallops and I had the Ahi tuna which was perfectly done rare. Favors were outstanding. A memorable evening. Looking forward to returning to this local gem.

    This charming historic stone inn was the perfect place for an intimate dinner on a snowy night ... especially with a table near the fire! The food was extremely tasty, served in a timely manner and piping hot. My husband's steak had been perfectly cooked; my veal scallopini was excellent; sides of haricot vert and creamy potatoes ... perfect accompaniments. We have put this spot on our list of places to take all our out of town guests, and plan to go there many more times in the future!

    Every one in our party of six was very pleased. Four were first time visitors and they are already looking forward to their next visit. The food was very good and our waitress was exceptionally accommodating and attentive. For those looking for something different and a step up before a show at the Sellersville Theater, this place fills the bill. A 6:00 reservation got us out in plenty of time for an 8:00 show.

    Arielle's was decorated lovely for the holidays. We had a quiet table by a window. We ordered the scallops wrapped in bacon and neither of us could pass up the wiener schnitzel entree special which was 'outstanding'! The portions were just right and I was able to finish my meal without taking home a doggy bag. The only negative was it was a bit cold by the window. I was glad I kept my coat with me but my husbands legs and feet were not so fortunate. We were not rushed from our table but did leave sooner than we wanted due to the cold. I would highly rate this restaurant.

    Everytime we've been here it has been perfect, and we are Very fussy when it comes to fine dining. The last time was before this Christmas [2013] and it was decorated with so much care and personal touch. Service was outstanding! There was not one thing wrong, from beginning to end. They even had a decorated Christmas tree on the porch! This place is cozy, cozy and very clean. I felt it was priced reasonable for the delicious food and the portions were large. You will not be disappointed with this lovely place. The owners really care.

    Once upon a time Arielle's Country Inn was a hidden gem in upper Bucks County. Since that time Arielle's has become increasingly popular, to the point where the kitchen can no longer maintain a high level of quality. 23Nov13 was our third disappointing visit in the past eighteen months. My meal was fair. My wife's schnitzel, on the other hand had to be rejected. The pork was over cooked to the point of being dried out. The egg was burnt black on the underside and served with the yolk broken. The broccoli, which we had requested to be triple steamed, was hard as a rock. Our server was the only bright spot in an otherwise lackluster evening.

    Really charming place, nice people but the food doesn't live up to expectation. It would be better if it was plainer - good quality food doesn't need to be drowned in sauces, overly spiced and shouldn't be overcooked. I've been there twice in the last several months, don't know if it is worth trying again.

    I liked everything, to be sure, but it wasn't quite what I was hoping for. The salads were absolutely delicious, but the main dishes were a little... not quite boring, but, not as varied as I'd expected. I had steak and my partner had duck. The both were very well prepared and the duck was definitely very good, which is sometimes hard to do, but neither were that "beyond amazing" quality that I've found some places. Also, both dishes were served with the same accompaniment, which surprised me (potatoes and yellow beans). I'd definitely go again.

    The presentation of every dish was perfect. The French onion soup was so good that I wanted to just pick up the cup and slurp it down. I had steak and my date had fish .Both were just the right portions and well seasoned. Even the sorbet was well presented and a good sized portion. Our server was always right on time and seemed genuinely happy that we were pleased with our food.

    My husband and I have been to Arielle's several times now, every time highlighted by a delicious meal and warm, elegant service. My husband had the angus steak and I had the pan seared sea scallops. Very generous portions of top quality cuisine. When I mentioned to our hostess and server that I am very petite and thin and always cold, she immediately sat us right next to the fire. Meticulous attention to detail and caring for diners' joy and comfort. We will be back.

    I was dining by myself, was put in a room by myself & ignored! I even had to ultimately go into the kitchen to get utensils. It was horrible, and then I had my server ask for the Hostess to see me. After I mentioned how disappointed I was to be abandoned by myself, she then lied and said that she had other clients to sit in the room w/me, but, someone else sat them. REALLY! She was the only one seating. I am a professional female in my 50's and did not deserve to be treated as such. If your dining by yourself - DO NOT EAT HERE!!! I will never return here - ever!
