Our recent dinner at Arielle's was our second time to dine there to celebrate birthdays. Dinner, service and ambiance were excellent just as it had been at our first dinner. It's a special country inn not to be missed.

I wish that I could write a better review but we didn't get to dine there yet. I don't know if there is a problem with Ariell's or Open Table but I had made a reservation online through open table and it was even confirmed. We traveled to the restaurant only to find that they were closing for the evening.
There is definitely miscommunication somewhere.

This is our go-to spot for special dinners. Classic country French cooking with very fresh ingredients and delicious preparations. Servers are friendly and knowledgeable. Setting is cozy and lovely. Outdoor dining available in warm weather. Save room for dessert; the poached pear with homemade hot fudge is worth every calorie!

Beautiful inn and well decorated for Christmas. Perfect Bucks County Stone farmhouse decor. Food is decent, but could be better. Every plate comes with the same potatoes and vegetables for the day. A bit too cafeteria style for my liking. Each protein should come with its own well crafted sides rather than the one size fits all approach. Service was attentive and friendly. Price point is comparable to any other high end restaurants in Bucks County (e.g. $30-35 for filet mignon), which makes it a bit over priced in comparison to the value of other restaurants where the food is more thoughtfully prepared. That said, we will probably go back anyway for the ambience and close distance to our house.

This was our first visit. Heard about Arielle's from my son who patron's often. Approaching the restaurant you automatically gain a warm feeling. Inside the stone, wood, fireplaces and friendly staff are very welcoming. We met friends there. Each dish was absolutely delicious! I learned the leaf placed on you plate is from the owners orange tree. She grows lemons, limes, oranges and many items used on her dishes year round. Prices are good for the service, portion size and surely the taste! We highly recommend Arielle's! I know we will be back!

I wish I was raving about this place like everyone else that seems to eat here. Unfortunately I will never return to “Arielle’s”. I am a younger person and I definitely noticed the crowd at this establishment. My fiancé and I watched the serving team including who I would assume to be the owner double or even triple teaming each table. We had one waitress while she was nice doesn’t make up for the fact we were the only table receiving different service. Abby was polite and relatively prompt. My fiancé and I waited around 20 minutes for a bowl of French onion soup, while the tables around us were served almost immediately. We then waited for our entrees for another 20 minutes, the owner walked around each table asking how their meal was and ignored our table. I ordered the venison special which was cooked properly and tasted fresh. My fiancé ordered the salmon which she also enjoyed. I’m sorry but even the best food can not make up for the terrible service. I will not return to Arielle’s and I don’t really think they would care. Just because I am younger does not mean I do not tip or my money isn’t just as green as everyone else.

I have been to Arielles over the years and enjoyed it and liked that it could be a nice restaurant for a "special" dinner or a nice place to visit with people you don't have an opportunity to see often. In the past it seemed very warm and welcoming, unfortunately that was not the case last Sunday evening. Our reservation was early, 6:30 pm, and there were very few people there. We were seated along the wall (I had asked not to be seated in the middle of the room) at a table that was on such an uneven spot in the floor you felt as if you had to hold onto your glass to keep it from tipping over. There were other very nice tables by the windows, we were told that were not available.... (No one else ever arrived).
Our order was taken quickly and the lady seemed very knowledgeable about the specials. The lobster bisque arrived and at best was "warmish" in temperature.
The young girl serving removed my friend's dish as soon as she finished, but I was still eating...she returned a few moments later with our meals and since there was no room for my meal on the table she attempted to remove my soup bowl while I was holding the spoon and obviously still eating. She stood there waiting for me, I finally just told her to take it. The meals were "warm" although we were warned about the "hot plates". She returned as soon as my friend finished and cleared the drink glasses, never offering another drink or coffee, she took the bread and there I set at an empty table finishing my meal, in a room that had become very chilly because the heat (gas fireplace) had been turned off as soon as the other guest dining in that rm left. She did return to ask if I'd finished and at that point I realized I had indeed finished!
My friend decided she would like to order desert, again no coffee offered.
I realize Sunday evening they wanted to close early, but while they were pleasant, I don't think it was necessary to be treated like you might be at some chezy diner.
Disappointing!

We travelled here from Allentown for a birthday celebration - group of 4. Very cozy. Lovely service. Mostly quiet except for a loud table near us (not excessive). I would have given a "quiet" rating if not for that. Food was different and wonderful, but not too extravagant. Good value for the price. We each had a different entrée and they were all good. Worth the drive along country roads.

Very welcoming and homey atmosphere. The service was wonderful and the food was outstanding! I loved the salmon dumpling special appetizer. My mom said her escargot was delicious. I had the filet and it was cooked perfectly. The veggies and sides were very tasty. My mom and brother had the turkey special since it was Thanksgiving. The only thing they mentioned was that there wasn’t enough turkey on the platter and they felt it was a bit overpriced at 26.00. They said it tasted very good...

Enjoyed the lobster bisque, but not my meal, which was veal & Chicken cannelloni. Everyone else enjoyed there meals. Service was ok, but nothing special. One of us Never got a fork after requesting when food came - ended up giving her my dessert fork so she could eat. Very nice place, but was chilly inside during dinner, and damp. We did enjoy ourselves. Price was a little high, but not outrageous.
