  • Disappointing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011VIP
    Dined on 9/27/2014
    Quaint, with old-fashioned porch and outdoor dining area. Server was friendly and tried hard to accommodate us. Wine list is low-end, no depth or substance. Menu had nice selection, but meals were disappointing. For an inn rated "best of Bucks and Montco" we expected delicious food. Salads came with diner-quality bottled dressings - the balsamic vinaigrette was so bad I had to send my salad back! I specifically asked for NO POTATOES and extra vegetables WITHOUT CHEESE... yet I got potatoes and cheese on everything. The vegetables were drenched in oil! Server apologized- said "she knew" it would happen. Veal and steak were chewy and everything was over seasoned with an unpleasant taste. Such a pretty place but food stinks.

    This is a beautiful country inn. The outside is nice too eat at with great atmosphere. We recently had a party of 6 to dine in. Everyones meal was great. The Chef always takes it to a great dining experience with outstanding dishes. The wait staff is polite and does there job well. The hostess is always friendly and makes you feel welcome. I have all good to say-we keep this as a special place that we know will always be a nice nite out.

    I took my mom and dad to Arielle's for their birthday celebration and Arielle's did a wonderful job in ensuring a good time was had by all. The inn is so quaint, the staff friendly and helpful, and the food outstanding. My parents go to a lot of restaurants and are usually disappointed but they both thoroughly enjoyed their meal. My dad had the duck, which he said was one of the best he has had. My step-mom got the surf and turf and everything was cooked to perfection. I will definitely return to Arielle's. We dined inside, as it was a little cool outside, but I look forward to dining in their outside seating area in their beautiful garden next summer.

    My friends and I often go to the Sellersville Theater and were looking for a restaurant other than the crowded Washington House. I saw the reviews on Trip Advisor for Arielle's Country Inn and decided to give it a try. The restaurant is an easy few miles from the theater and well worth the drive. The food and service are excellent. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for pleasant, unrushed dining experience.

    This was our 3rd time at Arielle's and we celebrated a 90th birthday with dear friends. The hostess and waitress were so kind in recognizing the birthday and brought dessert with a candle without our even asking. We had a nice table by the window. It is quiet and you can actually have a conversation without trying to be heard over the din of other boisterous tables. Our friends raved about the escargot. Three of us had scallops which were sweet and delicious and my husband had the stripsteak which was done to perfection. Service was friendly and attentive. I only gave service a four as we sat for awhile without water and asked twice before any was brought to the table. After that, it was refilled promptly. We will be back.

    The setting is lovely, the food wonderful, service great, unfortunately uneven tables led to spilt wine which ruined some of the experience, especially as we were warned, and as such the individual who spilt it felt terrible. Rather than warning customers of the problem, fix it.

    We requested seating in the garden. It was my first visit there and one could not have asked for a better experience. The weather was beautiful, the food outstanding (I had swordfish,my friend chicken Parm), and service very timely and pleasant. The food was as fresh as the flowers growing in the garden. I was there on a Friday evening so I would suggest reservations.

    Terrific food and a very interesting menu. Wine list is short and inexpensive - not a bad thing, but don't go looking for great wine. Definitely a great spot - and in a very pretty location. We sat inside, but the outside tables looked delightful. And the dining room itself is very pretty and unusual - definitely NOT a chain restaurant! Absolutely worth the drive.

    This was our first time dining at Arielle's. We chose to be seated outside since it was a beautiful night. The atmosphere of the outdoor seating area was very relaxing, and you could hear the soothing sound of the koi pond in the background. Our waitress was very pleasant and attentive. The food was served in a very timely manner, and both of our meals were very good. My husband had the special - a 16 ounce porterhouse steak, and I had the shrimp scampi. We both had the lobster bisque as well, which was delicious! Would definitely eat here again and recommend to friends as well.

    We gave Arielle's a second chance after a disappointing first time. It has gone downhill even further . They did not have several of the items listed on the menu. Also they were out of Chardonnay and had the improper wine glass. Our wait staff was inexperiened although pleasant enough. Don't think we will be back.

    We have driven by Arielle's many times over the years and always thought how lovely it was. So glad that we finally had the chance to enjoy an evening there with 2 other couples on Saturday. Beautiful garden setting on a quiet terrace. We were delighted with each drink, appetizer, salad, meal, and dessert. Everything was perfectly prepared and presented. Our server was attentive and the owner stopped by. Can't wait to go back!

    This place is so-oo very romantic and the food is perfect every single time we go. The portions are large for fine dining, and the chef does not scimp on top ingredients. We go out for fine dining a lot so we are quite picky and this place rocks! The owner has it decorated so warm and cozy, you'd think you were at someones country home.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 4/20/2014
    It's very seldom that you find a restaurant that has it all, unless it's a 5 star place in a large city. This is a quaint country inn that could compete against some of the most known restaurants in center city and put them to shame. The place itself is charming, the waitstaff is accomendating, friendly and knowledgable. The food was delicious and the menu has just enough choices. My husband and I went to celebrate our anniversary and it couldn't have been improved upon. It was an outstanding night. What a gem to find in this out of the way neighborhood. I want to keep it our secret!

    This place gets better and better! Had a wonderful Easter dinner. Have dined in many fine dining restaurants in my life, but never had oyster shooters! The appetizer was absolutely one of the best I've ever had. Oysters soaked in vodka and served in shot glasses....big plump, takes two bites to eat, oysters! Shared an order with my sister....next time I will eat them ALL myself! The rack of lamb was excellent, too. A very generous portion....had them for dinner the next night....what a treat. Have not had a bad meal here....If you are looking for good food in a lovely setting, you must try it!

  • Easter at Arielle's Country Inn
    jakeboy
    Dined on 4/20/2014
    We've been going to Arielle's for years and our last 2 visits were disappointing. Easter dinner in 2014 was really unpleasant. I ordered clams in whiter sauce for entrée. White sauce means olive oil and garlic (maybe some wine)....this was served in a cream sauce----YUK!! The clams were dirty and gritty. Vegetables were undercooked. They also need to either add some "white noise" or remove a few tables because you practice ally sit on top of the table next to you and there is no way of escaping their conversations! We love the quaint farm house essence, but we felt crowded and couldn't have our own conversation because the table next to us (less than 12" away) were quite vocal (not loud, just active).

    Our party of four had an early Friday evening dinner. My wife and I decided on the fresh clams and pasta. The clams were excellent-the freshest we have had in a long time and no sand!! Because my wife is Italian and makes her own pasta, she felt that the pasta was over cooked. The wait staff was prompt and attentive, keeping our water glasses filled and the wine cool.

    My husband and I have been ti Arielle's which we found on Open Table. The outside looks like a farmhouse you would just pass by. Very quaint and inviting. One you enter the door, you enter a fine dining establishment with an extensive menu, excellent and attentive service and a dining experience you would expect to find in a major city. We brought my sister and brother in law who live in Staten Island and are used to sophisticated dining experiences. The food was excellent and the choices were unique and they will be back!

The food here is so fine, the service is excellent, the atmosphere is elegant and romantic. (We sat by the fireplace on a cold and rainy night our last visit). I can only say wonderful things about this beautiful restaurant. And when the weather is good, they have outside seating in such a beautiful garden setting....try it! This place is the real deal!
