Been in area 3years and this is by far the best restaurant in area. Great service, ambiance and good food. Will definitely come back. Nice touch with the piano player
Hidden gem in Winter Haven serving high end dishes that won't disappoint. The creme brule is outstanding and we've never had a meal that wasn't perfect. It's a bit noisy which detracts from the wonderful piano player, but it's definitely a great place to eat. The staff are also very attentive and knowledgeable.
Love to lunch here. It's so pretty and the food is always wonderful. The staff is very friendly and efficient. A friend and I drive from out of town to shop the downtown area and have lunch at our favorite restaurant, Arabella's, several times a year. It never disappoints.
Professional staff, excellent piano player, great food and drinks. Have been going here for about 12 years and haven't ever had a bad visit
Excellent dining experience! My wife and I have been to Arabellas several times for lunch, but our past visit was for a rare date night dinner. The food as always was exceptional and the service is beyond any other fine dinning restaurant I have been to. The piano player took request and was a huge contributor to an amazing experience.
After 1.5 hours' travel from Orlando, Arabellas did not justify its #1 rating. I informed the management ahead of time that we were celebrating my companion's birthday, yet they seated us next to a boisterous group of 10, who were loud, rude and drunk. While dining on mediocre dishes, I was nearly immolated twice by a waiter who was cooking flambe' dishes much closer to our table than to the one he was serving. Had I been wearing a beard, it would have been singed. That waiter considered it an imposition when I asked him to please move away. Our own waiter was gracious and accommodating, and the musician who was entertaining did acknowledge my companion's birthday. The presentation of the various dishes was attractive, but it was impossible to enjoy the experience.
This is a very special place. The table side Caesar salad is excellent. The piano player adds a special touch to the experience. My wife always gets the table side prepared Steak Diane. I choose between several of the chicken dishes which are all good.
Another great meal at this little neighborhood gem in downtown Winter Haven. If you are looking for Italian fine dining in Polk County, this is the best you’ll find. Great service by friendly waitstaff and good food from a competent kitchen. The live piano entertainment is an added bonus.
Arabellas is a fabulous find and if you are ever near Winter Haven make sure to get a reservation to this amazing restaurant. The rib eye steaks are massive and cooked to perfection! I had the spinach and ricotta ravioli's and they were absolutely fabulous. Just an all around fantastic spot that transforms you to Italy!!!!!
Arabellas is always a great evening of food with great service. It is worth the drive from Orlando. Very good and highly recommend
A local restaurant that I found while at a craft fair. Everything from the food and atmosphere to the service is excellent and well worth a visit.
Delicious! They made my son’s birthday very special!
Superb service. Wonderful atmosphere. Delicious food.
As always it was wonderful! The food is great and the service is polite
and professional. When I go out to eat I go to Arabellas!!
Best restaurant in the region. Period.
Very nice and the service from our team was excellent
The food was excellent and the service was outstanding.
We had a great time celebrating my wife's birthday. We had flowers delivered from Lasiter's per restaurant's recommendation; and they were beautiful. The food and service was terrific. The music was great as well. We had a great evening and she had a great birthday. We'd highly recommend this place.
Great to know there's a nice restaurant in the area besides Streamsong. Food was fantastic and the piano player made it extra special. The creme brule was the best we've ever had.
Well it was our first time at this establishment. The BIGGEST turn off for me was the NOISE! But the other issue was being charged more than what was on the menu.
Even with both these issues we will be back!
Dinner is always excellent. The staff is very well trained, knowledgeable and friendly. They have a great wine selection and do not go crazy on the mark up like many good restaurants do.
The food and service are always superb !!
Would recommend, and have, to friends and family.
This was approx. our 5th visit - 2nd time to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We live an hour away, and find it absolutely worth the drive. Wonderful service and delicious food - definitely a special place.
Arabella’s was as it always has been SPECTACULAR. My husband and I come here often sometimes alone and many times with friends. We have always been pleased with the food, and we especially like Saturday nights with the piano player. A great restaurant for a special occasion or just for a night out.
Excellent restaurant with top-notch service, food, ambiance, and piano player.
Always a pleasure dining at Arabella's! Great food and fantastic service which was perfect for a post Valentine dinner!
Enjoyed the place a lot, will be back for sure..........................................lll
This was our first visit to Arabella's and it won't be our last. From start to finish, it was excellent. The noise level in the dining room was quite low, adding to the overall experience.
A great place for any occasion. Awesome food and service!!!
The staff was really nice. The food was enjoyable. I would like OpenTable to get the message that the reserving system was flawed. The restaurant didn’t see our reservation until the time of our reservation. When we first arrived, they could not see that we had a reservation.
The food is prepared to perfection. Superb service, always. A little gem tucked away. Wine could be a little better.
Amazing food and customer service. My husband and I enjoy coming here for special occasions. We always enjoy the entire experience, especially the fresh Caesar salad and steak prepared table side. My favorite is the Steak Lady Diane because the beef is so tender, it melts in your mouth. I also enjoy the molten chocolate cake for dessert. There is live piano music and the musician takes requests. The staff are very attentive. My husband got five forks last time we were there 😁
Delicious experience from beginning to end. The waitstaff was very professional and discreet. The piano playing in the background added to the ambiance of the evening. Our dinners were all done to perfection. We highly recommend Arabellas especially if wanting a special dining experience. We will definitely return.
An all around Wonderful experience. Staff was informed and professional. Food was delicious and ambiance pulled it all together.
With friends perfect lunch.
I look forward for any chance to have lunch at Arabellas. The grilled salmon is delicious and my favorite.
This is by far a 5-Star experience! I have never been let down at Arabella’s. The service, the food, and the table side preparation of items such as the Chateaubriand, Caesar salad, or the Cherries Jubilee. Simply amazing.
It was a very nice meal. We were meeting some good friends from out of town and Arrabella’s was the first place we thought of. Always excellent food. The Tiramisu is the best-hands down.
Great date night spot! Piano entertainment and food was excellent
