Great food and dining experience.
Our favorite special occasion evening dining place! However, we have decided we would also like to try them for lunches as well, which we expect to be just as wonderful.
We wanted some place special to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Arabella's was the perfect choice! There was a wide variety of choices without being overwhelming. Our servers were Vinny and Lindsay, who were attentive without being obtrusive and Chris on the piano went out if his way to make our night special. Thanks to everyone for making our night memorable.
Anniversary Dinner at Arrabella’s was a pleasure. We will be back!
The service, the décor, the attention to details...impeccable! Every member of the staff was easily able to answer any questions we had. We ordered three things that were prepared tableside...we loved it, so much fun to watch. The food was absolutely fabulous. I will definitely recommend Arabella's to anyone looking for some place special! I can't wait to return!!!
First time here, great meal at a price one would expect for this type of restaurant. The food was great, attractive interior design and the "Piano Man" made it even more enjoyable
Absolutely superb! A NYC experience in little downtown Winter Haven. Outstanding service, food and atmosphere. We loved it!
Consistently excellent. Great food and superior service
Celebrated my fiancé’s birthday. Hospitable hosts, delicious dishes, beautiful presentation, wide wine list and wonderful dessert. 10/10! A ‘must’ go!
The best meal we’ve had in several years! The service was impeccable! Was an absolutely amazing dinner and evening out with friends! We will definitely be back!
Tableside service is superb and well worth watching.
This was only my second time here and I found the food delicious and the waiters so genuine and warm. This place is a true gem! I was able to relax and have the best lunch during what was a most stressful day. Thank you !
Celebrating my Dad’s birthday. Had a wonderful meal and evening with family.
Love the ambiance & staff almost as much as the food! Must admit Christopher is the main reason we keep coming back.
Service was terrible
We love Arabella’s great food, great service, nice atmosphere one of our favorite places
Always such a treat to dine at Arabella's. Superb service from Trenton, Aric, and their team. We both had veal which was amazing. Everything was perfect to the last detail, food was fantastic and the experience was delightful. The piano player even played a special song for my wife.
Great meal and the service is exceptional!!
My reservation was not available at the time i reserved 2 weeks prior
Great Italian food, prepared creatively and served by an attentive, professional staff. This is fine dining at a restaurant that knows how to make its customers feel special with a stunning menu, excellent wine list and a welcoming but not pretentious atmosphere. Plus the piano player added an element of fun and entertainment to an outstanding meal. Being new to the Winter Haven area, this was our first visit to Arabellas, but it won’t be our last.
Very nice and music wonderful but a little loud
Service was excellent, with timely attention to our needs without hovering. Chilean sea bass was tasty and prepared perfectly. The hanger steak special was very good, but was a little tough as might be expected in spite of hopes to the contrary. My wife and I were celebrating our 55th wedding anniversary and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening and the eclectic renditions by the piano player.
Enjoyed my wife’s birthday with her parents at lunch! Great service and food.
Wait staff is excellent.
Food is excellent.
Everything is excellent.
One of the few places available enjoy your dinner and not be rushed out. Thank you
Arabella’s never disappoints - it has been several years since we dined there and nothing changed, everything was superb. We can’t wait to return to experience another exceptional dining experience.
My husband and I went to celebrate our 12th anniversary. We were not disappointed. The waiter was fantastic. Their were plenty of staff on hand to refill drinks and take away plates. There was a live piano player that eagerly took requests. He even came over to play on an accordion a song for our anniversary. We never felt rushed. In fact, we had 6 pm reservations and didn't leave until almost 8 pm. Absolutely fantastic time!
We had dinner friends. The calamari was gigantic in quantity. All of the entrees and appetizers were delicious. The drinks were good. It's a good place to get together with another couple or a special occasion. One of the best dining options in our area.
Great as always
Great time and great food!
Excellent Caesar salad done table side. Sea bass was outstanding as was the veal.
It's always an excellent experience when dining at Arabellas. Best restaurant in all of Polk county.
Went for dinner and it was delicious. The atmosphere was pleasant and the piano player set the mood for a relaxing evening. Service spot on, and didn't realize how long we had been there. Will definitely go back,
Arabellas was up to its old standards, as it has been each time I have dined there. Whenever we are in the local area, this restaurant is a must for my husband and I. So often we are disappointed s old favorites slip, but not Arabellas.
The food is in more than generous quantities, but more importantly, it is high in quality. Plump and tasty escargot, crisp salads and pasta that is actually properly al dente - a frequent miss even in restaurants that supposedly specialize in pasta. We both ordered chicken dishes that were tender, juicy and full of rich flavors. Our server was outstanding and more than helpful. And of course, the piano player is one of our favorite people in the restaurant.
Resorting to very small nits to find a negative, the noise level was higher than normal (a few patrons arrived determined to have their voices heard above all others - something the restaurant cannot control). And the bread service was not much above the regular run of the mill; perhaps some ciabatta next time?
This restaurant is a great place.for fine dining and for intimate dining
They made me feel special for my bday! Food and service were AMAZING!!
Il migliore! We enjoyed a fantastic 5-course dinner with friends on a Saturday night (reservations made well in advance). The Chef Juan's cuisine is the highest quality and the ambiance in the dining room is not what you'd expect to find in Polk County. Marcos and his team provided excellent service throughout the meal. Fantastic finishing touch flambe by Chef Franco! Recommendations: Fiocci al Gorgonzola, Caprese (we split an order between two as a salad course) Veal (any of them!), Rack of Lamb.
This was a special evening and we chose to celebrate at a restaurant that we had been wanting to try for almost 4 years. This wS the right choice for our celebration and we highly recommend Arabellas to anyone looking for a fine dining experience with ambiance, excellent food and service.
Loved the live music in the restaurant. Also not many places give you the sorbet pre main fish. Nice touch.
We went for lunch the service was ok. We usually go for Dinner and the service is all ways excellent.
