Arabellas is a fabulous experience.
This was a very nice and elegant restaurant. It is the perfect restaurant for a date night, anniversary or a special dinner. All the workers there were super nice
We visited to celebrate two couples Anniversaries; which the server even mentioned at the begin; but we were never recognized after. One could expect a little token at a higher priced Restaurant like this.
We have been there a couple of times prior; but service was extremely slow that night.
This lived up to all the hype I've ever heard about Arabellas.
Best food to be had in Polk county!
Very tasty food in a comfortable ambience. Great service.
Our favorite for special occasions. Northern Italian flavorings.
We love this amazing restaurant and everything it has to offer. Top notch staff, amazing food and incredible service!
What a great experience! Manhattans, food, service and the music were outstanding.
Food was great as always. Service was not up to par. Left out one complete service (aperitif). Drinks were very light and had to be remade. Not what we had come expect over many years
Service and food were very good but it took our food a while to come out. One of our party had to leave before we were served. This was my first time at Arabella's for lunch so I am not sure if this was a fluke or if it is the norm.
Absolutely the best Italian food I have had since moving to Fl 15 years ago. The soup was outstanding!!!! The veal was not overly breaded or cooked and the pasta supreme. Best of all was dessert.
Arabellas is by far the finest restaurant around. So perfect for special occasions. We've been going there for a number of years and it never disappoints.
It was perfect.
One Of the best fine dining restaurants in the area but the group or special with $46 and highly overpriced.
Our favorite place in the Orlando area.
Great place to go out and have a relaxing date. The service is great, waiters are nice, people are respectful, food is quality and the piano music in the background with dinner just adds on to the experience.
We have been to this restaurant many times and have not been disappointed with our meal. We were among the earliest reservations and I felt we had a longer than normal wait time between courses, adding at least 45 minutes to our usual departure time.
Great food great atmosphere
The service is always exceptional but we did have a issue with my steak. It was very fatty and full of gristle. It was also the special of the day to which I ordered without checking the price, my bad! The steak dinner was $135, one plate. The manager was very kind and took into consideration that my steak was bad and cut the price to $67. My fault for not asking the waiter how much the special was plus it took a long time to get our dinner. We were there 2:20 minutes. Too long!
What a fantastic restaurant! Service is excellent. Food is delicious. Great wine list.
For the price, just average. Waiters didn’t communicate with each other & didn’t listen to specific requests
We come every year at Christmas time to celebrate our December anniversary. The service is very good, and you never feel rushed. The manzo, pollo, vitello, frutti di mare, and pasta entrees are excellent and the table side Caesar Salad is a must have. We also always enjoy playing "Stump the Band" with the great entertainer. We can't wait until next year!
An amazing dinner and pre dinner dinner drinks as always. I have been many time before but it was my wife’s first visit.
I had the Wagu Beef special and it was incredible.
The very finest customer service you will get dining here and I will always recommend
This was our first trip, by far not the last, to Arabella's in Winter Haven. The charm, ambience, and mood reminded me of my favorite historic restaurant in New Orleans in the French Quarter. Everything was perfect. The pianist was wonderful and played a vast repertoire of alluring tunes. He was a hit. The food selection, an amazing variety and quality of cuisine, also reminded my of that same historical restaurant. The chef and serving staff are to be highly commended. Again, absolutely perfect.
As usual food was fantastic, compliments to the chef. Charming atmosphere.
This is a must go restaurant! Amazing food, atmosphere and the staff is wonderful!
Great atmosphere. We enjoyed the live pianist and the food was suberb. We had the Chilean sea bass and tomahawk steak. It was well prepared and delicious.
Too crowded given risk of COVID. Won’t return unless seating policy changes.
We came here for the first time to celebrate a family member’s birthday. The food was delicious. We will definitely be back.
What a fantastic place for quality Italian food. I will go back often!!! 5 star 🌟
First time visiting, for our 25th anniversary. Food and appetizers were absolutely fabulous. Service was on point and always checking on us. Overall 10/10 for the entire experience.
We've eaten a number of times at Arabella's and always enjoyed our meal, but Saturday night the dining experience was outstanding. Our waiters Trent and Jeremy were ON POINT with everything, and the timing of each course was perfect. We have not been dining out a lot recently, but felt comfortable with the entire staff wearing masks, and tables fairly well socially distanced. Overall it was a lovely way to celebrate our anniversary.
Viny our server was great!
Great place for that special evening
Everything about Arabella’s was wonderful. However I ordered the veal piccata and instead of getting the spaghetti with the lemon sauce and capers I got the spaghetti with the red sauce that was a bit disappointing but I did receive the correct spaghetti later but missing a lot of the lemon sauce that I enjoy - thank you.
excellent food, service, ambiance Arabellas hits a home run with the dining establishment. I highly recommend this place. You will not be disappointed!
we always love Arabella’s so we chose it to celebrate my 70th birthday. Cocktails were exceedingly slow to the table, not complicated, just some glasses of wine and (1) bourbon. Appetizers were of the usual good all the way around, but then the badness began...we waited over an hour for our entree’s, with no “visit or explanations” by our server..totally ignored, probably because, we ordered (2) bottles of wine and were serving ourselves.This was NOT the Arabella’s we knew! When our entrees arrived, (2)guests had the special mahi mahi it was dry and luke warm. My fillet looked perfectly done, but was cold , as were my stuffed shrimp, and the broccoli could not be cut with a steak knife. By then were were “done” with Arabella’s, sent back the food, paid the check and left. I was so disappointed, I saved my calories all day for this very special occasion..instead went home and ate left over pasta.
Excellent food, service and ambiance! Highly recommended.
