This is one of our favorite restaurants in the area and has been consistently great over the years. The options are creative, varied, and well prepared. The chef is great at accommodating dietary (gluten free) needs.

The chef has the ability to make flavors pop. We chose the six course sampler and are thrilled we did. Tuna Tattar, Seared Scallops, Halibut, Lamb, Beef Filet and Apple Crisp. The chef paired the flavors flawlessly with wine.

Our goal at Ariana's is to offer a range of menu choices reflecting the many different palates and we feel there is something on our menu for most people. Our menu focuses on seasonal, quality and local (as much as possible during the different seasons) ingredients.
