My husband and I make it a point to go to Arabella's for all special occasions. The most recent was for my birthday and they didn't disappoint.
Excellent food, service and ambiance. Best restaurant in Polk County!
Never had bad meal love the place
Piano player plays your selections
Cain’t say enough about the restaurant 👍
Best restaurant in the Winter Haven area. Salad made tableside, food selections excellent.
Best upscale restaurant in the Winter Haven area. Service is impeccable!
If you want a very peaceful dinner where you can enjoy your dinner and conversation this is the place in Winter Haven.
Always great food and service.
As always....Excellent. Best restaurant in the area. Blessed to have them in Winter Haven. The ONLY thing negative is that the noise level can sometimes be disruptive.
My wife and I had an awesome dinner at Arabella's on Thursday 30 August. The food was prepared expertly. It was her birthday and the chef made the desert very special. The pianist played or favorite songs and then serenaded my wife and sang the birthday song. Our waiter Logan made sure we had a very memorable evening!
Fantastic all around!
Great atmosphere and my wife and I love this place
Best overall dining experience in quite a while. Relaxed, comfortable dining with excellent food.
I was at Arabellas the month before, for a business luncheon and left something behind. The management was kind enough to hold it for me, all this time, til I could get back to retrieve it. A great place to meet for business. Really nice personnel. I look forward to returning.
Arabellas is just great! Food is always EXCELLENT! Service impeccable! Don't pass up opportunity to eat here!
What a great lunch!! The food was excellent and the service
as well. How wonderful to have a place to go and know you
and your guest will not be disappointed.
Great food, service in a very pleasant setting. All in all a great experience!
Excellent service, food was very good, but one of my scallops was undercooked and 70% raw inside. Noise level was very high from the crowd, and we almost had to yell at each other to be able to talk. Vey busy that night!
We had an enjoyable evening celebrating our anniversary. We arrived early to take advantage of the bar for a cocktail before our reservation. We also appreciated being able to enjoy our food selections without feeling rushed In between courses.
It was an awesome experience from beginning to end. My companion was discreetly asked to remove his hat. So beware and it wasn’t a ball cap, but he wasn’t offended it was done so nicely.
Excellent servers, food , and atmosphere. Only poor mark is a small noisy neighbors at a tale talking loudly.
Great service and atmosphere. Loved having live piano music as well. Enjoyed everything about the meal except the salad course, where the dressing tasted commercial and the lettuce was iceberg (not baby greens as the menu said), the grated carrots looked old, unripe tomatoes (it's August Florida for goodness sake!) and shavings of parmesan cheese which really didn't work for me. Overall a nice find and we'll be back. Maybe skip the salad course next time.
Arabellas is a beautiful restaurant with ample on street parking. While the food was good, not outstanding, the service was over the top. The staff was extaordinary and extremely attentive which made my business meeting outstanding. Yes, I would recommend Arabellas.
Although they mixed up the hubby’s order, the meal food was awesome. Elegant and romantic and fulfilling.
This was our first visit and it was recommended my son claiming it the best restaurant in Polk County. We will return!
Great experience. Compares to Carbone's in Hartford CT without the attatude! Will go back many times.
food & service were terrific... and the musician was wonerful
Waiter Vinny was great. Unfortunately back room had a large, loud party which interfered with our romantic birthday celebration.
This was our first time at Arabella’s but it won’t be our last! We enjoyed the atmosphere and background music. The menu was varied and we ordered appetizers to dessert. Everything tasted fresh and was absolutely delicious. Service was excellent and very attentive. It’s a bit pricey but worth every cent!
Very pleasant suroundings, very good food and service.
The service was outstanding. The live music was very good. It was a very pleasant experience. While the food was very good, I think it is over priced.
Food and service very good. Table location not so good.
We celebrate our engagement here and later my birthday our last visit we celebrated my husbands daughters visit from Kentucky.
As always, a great dining experience.
Brian the owner prepared our table side Caesar Salad which was delicious and then even suggested another restaurant in St. Pete that also does table side . He surprised us with my husbands favorite tiramisu which was beyond delicious. Justin took excellent care of us and managed all the waite staff as they cared for us unobtrusively. .My chicken marsala and husbands veal piccata was very good and the sorbet to cleanse the pallet is a lovely extra. It was an anniversary celebration and Christopher the piano made our evening with the Anniversary waltz. All in all a lovely evening .
Always attentive service. Expensive for the area but not for the food and service. Well prepared food, rarely off point- though the lobster bisque was a little too salty. Fish special with risotto was excellent. Would have liked a better by the glass wine selection- pretty generic. One complaint: the pianist is mediocre at best and he comes by TOO OFTEN to your table hoping you make a request.
Food was delicious as always and love the ambiance with the piano player. Not too loud to talk and enjoy your meal. Absolutely a great place!!
Very special place for our 44th anniversary...everything was top notch..reminded us of our favorite italian restaurants in NYC...
Amazing as always. Ambience is fabulous. Love the pianist and professionalism of the wait staff. Love table side dessert prep.
Arabellas is fantastic, my favorite place, the service is great & my steak was super good & cooked just they way I asked for. A good place to take a first date, she was impressed.
All staff were very pleasant and punctual on delivering our food, it was very European, and enjoyable.
