    Chef never disappoints. We came here for the second time because we have dreamed about this restaurant ever since our first visit 6 years ago. We have a 3 day stay and have booked two nights in a row. It was just as good as our first visit if not better. Make this a priority to visit if you are in the area. You will not be disappointed!

    This restaurant is absolutely fantastic! From the moment you walk in the door, you are greeted with the table that is already preset, including your menus. It has a wonderful ambience and impeccable service. The food has a beautiful presentation and the flavors are just amazing. This is one of my all-time favorite restaurants in Central Florida.

    From the first bite of our appetizers to the last bite of our entrees, we all enjoyed every morsel. The pianist was excellent, the food outstanding, and our team of waiters were attentive but not intrusive. It was a perfect evening.

    I don't think anyplace tops the service level of Arabella's. Food was excellent but their service stands out. I love the piano music and the ability to suggest songs Need to have their google site adjusted. Says they reopen at 4 pm and they do not until 5 pm-created an issue for us

    Dinner at Arabella's means approx. a 2 hour drive both coming and going, and for that reason I don't get there very often - once every year or two. In the past, I always considered it more than worth the effort, but now I'm a bit less certain. The Service remains excellent; the piano player is extremely good and adds a great deal of enjoyment. The food remains very good - but somehow it did not seem quite the standard of excellence that I remember. Don't get me wrong; I have little patience with restaurants that never change anything. But change for the sake of change can be scary. While the menu appears structured pretty much the same, the preparations are not. Lumache (snails) that my husband and friends ordered, are now in a creamy tomato sauce that I think was the same as on the involtini that I had ordered. And quite frankly, I expected a mild, soft and creamy filling, but I had also expected more flavor, and preferably a appetizer portion vice the main course sized plate I had received - I hate wasting food. That same creamy pink sauce was on some of the pasta dishes, and I swear if you add a bit of fish stock (fish, not lobster) you get the lobster bisque (or soup - too thin for a bisque) that was served to our table. Noise levels have risen - first thing we noticed walking onto the restaurant. At least the four of us at the table could hold a conversation and hear the music - a highlight - but just glad I had not intended this as a "romantic" dinner. Again - food was quite good, not great; thankfully the service and music are still up to the old standards. I would still recommend Arabella's with some reservations - but not for anyone driving out of their way.

    We were there celebrating out 60th Anniversary with another couple. The food was Excellent except for one dish... The Oysters on a Half Shell...! I have never seen Oysters that small. I've eaten Oysters all over the United States and Canada and never experienced such Small Oysters... You need to get your Oysters from Lousiana... My wife had the French Onion Soup as an appetizers and said it was great! Our waiter was Michael and he and his co-waiter took excellent care of our table! Michael even brought us an extra desert with Happy Anniversary written on the plates... Fantastic...! Our friends are going to bring some friends from the north country down to your restaurant from the Davenport area. Both of us totally enjoyed our evening at your restaurant...! Sorry for the one ding but those Oysters were just too, too Small... I get regular size Oysters in New Orleans for $9.00 a dozen.. Denny

    Wait staff, pianist and ambiance were wonderful. The prices are too high for just the food you receive, but the added ambiance is nice for a special night out. They have some dishes which are prepared tableside and there is ample time between courses to chat.

    We dined at Arabellas for the first time last night and were really impressed. The dining room was well appointed and laid out, our table was apart from others, to allow for private conversation. The service was attentive and the food was excellent, and reasonably priced, as was the wine. We thoroughly enjoyed the piano player, the music really enhanced the ambience. We will definitely be back when we visit Florida.

    We had a great anniversary dinner at Arabella’s. We got there early and luckily got seated. I love their house salad and followed with the lobster ravioli. My husband had the veal marsala. Everything was delicious, the piano player takes requests and provides a great vibe. 5 star experience!

    Food and service was excellent, as always! Appetizers to dessert - all great! Waiter was great too! Disappointed to see that the long standing piano player, who we loved, and who took requests, and could play just about anything, was replaced by someone who was hitting the piano keys way too loud for a restaurant, played selections more appropriate for a bar atmosphere, and cannot sing, so should not try. Changed the experience for us.
