    Unfortunately my dinner was barely warm and it had taken a good while to receive it so I didn’t send it back. We needed to get home and didn’t want to start over. Appetizer Calamari rings were very tiny but tasty. Servers knowledgeable and friendly. I ordered cheesecake for dessert and it was an extremely small piece for $10.00.

    7/1/22 Steak was ordered medium- but not very tender. Shrimp stuffed with crabmeat- more sauce than crab. Veal shank was not very tasty. Caesar salad excellent as always and so we’re the tini’s. We will not go back as the price of each entree was right at $50. So not worth it for the quality of each entree. And we used to love going before new owners.

    Celebrate my birthday every year at Arabella’s. Service always on point and we enjoy the piano player and his music. The lamb was perfectly cooked and tender. I ordered the veal osso bucco special. I was very disappointed. The veal did not braise long enough so it was chewy and tough. It has to cook slowly for a long time. Disappointed that it was served without any sauce. Just made it drier. I did tell the server that the veal was undercooked. Hopefully, he advised the chef. We’ll still be back. Great dinner spot.

    The Caesar Salad prepared tableside is a MUST! Jeffrey does a wonderful job putting everything together and even gives the history of how the salad came to be! Next, we had the snails, which were delicious. Then my companion had the lobster ravioli and I had the evening's special, Osso Buco. Both were simply outstanding! We finished the evening with one of my favorites, Bananas Foster, again prepared tableside by Jeffrey! The house wines by the glass were superb, if you are like us, where one only drinks red and one only drinks white!

    We ate lunch here on a Monday. The Pollo alla Greco was flavorful but the chicken was tough and hard to cut with the standard knife presented. The penne with meat sauce was large and very good. Unfortunately the service was slow, especially if someone is on a lunch break. The server seemed quite busy so it probably was not his fault. He was professional and friendly. If you are there for lunch or have an appointment after dining, it may take well over an hour until your check arrives.

    Food was outstanding and service was fantastic. Just make sure you get pricing on specials before you order them.. we ordered a special entree just was not aware it was a $58 entree but it was very good. And the Caesar salad is to die for,it was the best I have had in a long time.

    We can always count on Arabella's for an amazing an unforgettable experience. We began with the special appetizer sweet and tangy Fiocci al Gorgonzola accompanied by fresh baked bread which is perfect for dipping the luscious gorgonzola cream that lined the dish at the end. Two guests opted for the decadent Lobster Bisque as an upgrade and in place of their salad course (strategy to save room for dessert!) and were very pleased! Entrees were Roast Duck with dark cherries prepared medium, came out very tender with the fat rendered perfectly, Lobster Ravioli which was quickly devoured by its recipient, Pollo Al Fiorentina received high marks, and finally Linguine Carbonara thick, rich, and fantastic! Cherries Jubilee finished up with the meal, perfectly prepared by the manager! From the personal touches, to the talented musician, and the always amazing dining room staff, Arabella's never disappoints. Chef Juan consistently delivers a product that is unmatched and the level of service of the staff (Logan and Trent) is unparalleled. We've never had a bad experience at Arabella's and look forward to our next visit.

    We love Arabella’s. Food and service always excellent. Piano player created ambiance. Appetizers were delicious as were our entrees. Only issue I had was bones left in the red fish special I had. I would have thought the Chef would check before sauté . Found myself picking bones out of my mouth. Not pleasant. Cherries jubilee were wonderful finish.

    Delicious way to celebrate, have dinner with friends or just the two of you ! Vinny, our waiter, was outstanding & helped make our birthday night special. You couldn't ask for better choices -- pastas, seafood, chicken, steak, & my favorite -- veal. Preparations to meet the most picky of diners. We will definitely plan to return & eat our way around the menu.

    The luncheon entree selections are excellently prepared, and fairly priced given the service and atmosphere. I can't say the same for the desserts, especially the cheese cake. A very small sliver for $9 when most entrees are $10.50 to $13 is not worth it.
