    Good was excellent, as always. The service has gone down quite a bit. We arrived 20 mins early, no rush just got there early, the lady said it would be about 15 mins. She came back 20 mins later to tell us she had given our table away and she needed to create a table for us. The wait staff wasn’t nearly as attentive as they use to be. In between appetizers and our salad we ran out of drinks. All three of us. Thankfully the food was still amazing.

    We were there last year and it was incredible!! We couldn’t wait to come back. Service was amazing. This time, we felt they forgot to put our entree food order in. Dinner took too long, and quality was just okay. Server didn’t check on us, and when I inquired about food it was like let me find out kind of situation.

    The service was first class. I think that’s the first thing one notices. The ambiance is the second as you settle in for a great time. The drinks, then the menu and then help with ordering - all excellent. The music was great and not too loud. The food prepared table- side was a wonderful experience, and the taste exquisite. I think all of us would agree we had an extraordinary experience.

    We plan to move to the area soon and decided to check out the local restaurants. We made a reservation at Arabella's for a retirement celebration. We were served by Deanna and Dom, and a few others whose names we didn't catch. We also conversed with your pianist, Chris. The service was top-notch, with everyone going above and beyond to make us feel welcome and to make sure our needs were met. Deanna in particular is a sweetheart and I'm sure has a bright future in whatever field she decides to ultimately pursue. The food from appetizer to desserts was absolutely wonderful. We have found our go-to place for special occasions and will definitely be back. We would recommend Arabella's to anyone.

    I have been to Arabellas a dozen or so times with never a problem with anything, this time I ordered Veal Marsala and it came out with pasta and sauce, not my kind of Veal Marsala. If it came 2 different ways I was not asked which way I would have liked it. I know I did not have to pay for it after returning it so that was the good part. Other than that my company all had good dinners while I watched them eat because I lost my appetite after that situation Joseph Orsini

    We had a very delightful meal. My only concern was the steak which was part of a steak and stuffed shrimp menu. I found the steak rather tough and gritty but other than that our meal was fantastic. In the past the steak has been very delicious with a wonderful flavor. Our server did an outstanding job of taking care of us for the evening, she was very knowledgeable and always made sure that we were being taken care of.

    Great service, great atmosphere, food quality is ok. Our server was very knowledgeable and very attentive to our needs. My wife and I went here for our anniversary and were overall very pleased. If I’m being honest, our appetizers were actually better than our main course. For a $200 meal for two I expected a little more in regards to food quality and flavor. But overall we were pleased with the experience and would recommend it to a friend. Solid 4 out of 5!

    Arabellas is always a guaranteed amazing experience. The only reason I gave four stars overall is because it took about three hours for our complete experience. The time between courses was excessive and we often sat for 20-30 minutes waiting for the next course. We ordered an appetizer, table side Caesar salad, and entrees. It was so late by the time we finished, we decided to forego dessert. Our wait staff was spectacular, the piano player is terrific, the food is sublime. I will continue to count Arabellas among my favorite restaurants of all time and bring visiting friends and family.
