I am always excited to eat here. The owners make sure you have the best food and service. It is a small place and while it is a restaurant it has a homey feel too.

This is my go-to meal stop every time I visit Columbia. It's a small little restaurant beside the Riverbanks Botanical Garden entrance. I've had at least half the meals on the menu and every one is incredible. For appetizers I have to recommend the hummus, aushak, sambosa, spanakopita, and especially the lentil soup! The side salad that comes with the... More

The food tasted very good. The service was pretty slow. I got the beef cabab. It was $13 for five little pieces of beef and a whole lot of rice. If you like paying $13 for $3 worth of meat and 75 cents worth of rice, this is your restaurant. Don't get me wrong, it did taste good. But I... More

If you are a fan of Mediterranean cuisine, you will enjoy Ariana's. The food is Turkish/ Greek and very tasty. The ingredients were fresh, and the salad was excellent. Don't turn away from this place because of it's location... you will be pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere inside, and the meal and service provided. The chef and owner came out... More

Do not let the restaurant's location fool you. It's on a smaller size with nice but simple table setting. The food is carefully prepared to order and every bite is so worth the trip. Will definitely return and would highly recommend this one to friends and relatives.

Pretty good Greek food. A very small place in a small strip mall. The place is clean and sort of pretty. We went for lunch and had a veggie spinach dish, my friend had lamb kabobs. The portions were not huge like most Greek places and just enough for lunch. We might return for dinner one night, however not rushing... More

This restaurant has become our favorite local restaurant. The food is Greek with a Mediterranean flair. The owner is the chef, and the service can get slow when the restaurant is crowded. We go early. Very good. A little different.

Ariana's clearly was not expecting a large lunch crowd. We stopped at 1720 to go to Delucca's -- they were published as open, but were close; therefore, we went next door to Ariana's Greek Restaurant. I guess everyone else had the same idea. We had to wait for a seat and then had to wait 20 minutes to get a... More
