Great food and service. It is very pricy but one of the better restaurants in the area. Good mood, friendly people and the food quality overall is very good. Great place for a romantic dinner or just a treat.

We came to Arabellas for our anniversary and had the most amazing experience! The service was beyond anything I've had at any other comparable restaurant. The food was also amazing with large portions. They even gave us a free dessert because it was our special day!!

Great Food & atmosphere. Would definitely go again. Nice to have something a little different than your average chain.. They take the time to personalize the service to your event. Great offerings like tablesude Caesar Salads and Bananas Foster! Piano player to enhance the ambiance. Long experience about 2 1/2 hours for dinner timed very nicely. My only complaint is that the noise level was very loud! I had a hard time hearing my boyfriend across the table.

Excellent food and service. The dress code is business casual, but they allowed some people in with their best gym shorts and printed tee shirts. If you don't mind the beach front bar look of the patrons on Saturday night, then the food and service may be worth it.

Excellent service, food and overall experience. Arabella's provides an intimate atmosphere with a classy, yet relaxed experience. It is obvious that the chef creates the dishes with passion. We are long time faithful customers and will continue to choose Arabella's as our dining preference.

This establishment has recently changed hands and we were anxious to experience the current status. The good news is that little has changed. The food was still excellent as was the service. Happy to be able to give this good review as we had reports of a decline in what has long been a favorite spot. Our only complaint is that one must accept a fairly high noise level, particularly when they're fully booked, as is often the case. Please, Arabella's, keep up the high standard. And oh, Christopher's piano was as good as ever.

Although the quality and presentation of the food was good it’s just overpriced. The service was as good as you could ask. Dining room tended to be noisier than it should be. Suggest lunch be tried before going for dinner.

We ate at Arabella's on my birthday in March. The restaurant was filled with guests yet somehow it was still very quiet and very elegant. I love that they have a piano player there who takes requests, and he came over to our table and played "Happy Birthday" to me while playing an accordion. Our drinks were perfect, the appetizer was delicious, and both of our meals were prepared to our liking. Dessert was made extra special with a lit candle and raspberry drizzle. Arabella's always makes our dining pleasurable!

Love having lunch at Arabellas. It's so pretty inside and the servers are very attentive. The food is always good and so plentiful we always take some home. This visit was for a birthday lunch and we were given a complimentary piece of cheesecake topped with a candle, which was quite unexpected but much appreciated. Will definitely be back.

I have already recommended Arrabellas to several people here at Winterset. It is truly the best dining experience we enjoy in Florida, and tops our favorite restaurant in Connecticut as well. We always enjoy/savor every bite; the service is outstanding and I absolutely LOVE the piano music and enjoy hearing our favorite requests. Thank you, Don't ever change a thing.

Was excellent. Trent did an excellent job and his recomendations were super. We would only recommend that if there are couples and they have alcohol in their system already I would recommend seating them away from others that are trying to have a nice dinner. Makes it quite difficult to enjoy the rest of the dinner with noise being right in your ears. Loved the pianist he was awesome.

Ok well the food had so much salt in it. Also there was way too little sauce and dry. Not the best. Went after reading rave reviews and disappointed also $9.50 for a small glass of wine at lunch is crazy. No don’t believe all the reviews pretty place but food is not the best.
