While the exterior of the Craftsman bungalow that houses Ariana Restaurant in Bend holds an old-fashioned charm, and the interior is reminiscent of your grandma’s home back in your hometown, the food served here offers a modern twist to your traditional favorites. Located at 1304 NW Galveston Boulevard and open for dinner only Tuesday through Sunday, this upscale restaurant may cost a little more than the others we have talked about, but it’s worth the cost—especially if you are celebrating a momentous occasion!

Low Lights, White Tablecloths, and a Roaring Fire on the Coldest of Nights

Ambience is everything in the restaurant business, and the ambience of Ariana’s of Bend, OR is one of quiet elegance and genteel pampering. A single red rose stands out against the crisp whites of the table coverings, creating a tableau of simplistic beauty. Murmured conversations, the clink of crystal glasses as quiet toasts are made, and quiet sighs of satisfaction are the primary sounds you will detect on your special night.

The Best Restaurants Offer the Best Wines

Featuring an extensive wine menu that rivals those in more cosmopolitan cities, Ariana Restaurant in Bend is also famous for its unique cocktails! Try a glass of Chateau Du Grand Bos Bordeaux for a smooth accompaniment to your Filet Mignon, a Rogue Hazelnut Brown Newport with your Wild Cod & Clams, or show off your experimental side by sampling a Latin Temperament, a mixture of tequila, passionfruit, habanero, agave and lime—just because you can!

And Then There’s the Food

Prepared with loving care by Chefs Ariana and Andre Fernandez, your meal is guaranteed to be an epicurean experience you won’t soon forget. A Bone Marrow appetizer served with roasted bone jus, parsley salad and grilled bread is the perfect start to the meal, especially if you follow it with Ariana—the salad, not the chef! Featuring Rooper Ranch lettuce, orange, onion, rogue blue, and a basil vinaigrette, the way the flavors mingle make this salad one of our favorites!

Moving on to the main course, the Short Rib comes with a cauliflower soubise, brown butter Brussel leaves, and fresh horseradish for a touch of heat that will warm your stomach! And since every meal should end with something sweet, the chocolate cake from Ariana Restaurant is worth saving room for! This Valrhona chocolate cake with white chocolate ganache, milk chocolate mousse, chocolate sauce, and chocolate curls is a delicious example of what’s right in our world today!
