We had dinner at this restaurant and were very disappointed with the overall experience. It seemed to attract an older clientele and the interior was very dated. The food was good, we both had a fish dish which was nicely presented and very tasty, the portions were quite small so make sure you order an appetiser! It was reasonably busy for a midweek night but it started to empty early, as mentioned earlier it was mainly seniors who were eating there. There was a pianist playing which was a nice touch but I didn't like the way he kept going round the tables talking to the guests, not my thing at all.

We went to celebrate the twins' birthday, We felt kind of rushed, since salads arrived before we ordered appetizers, and the cocktails and wine arrived all at the same time. In a way, that was a good thing, since the meals were excellent, and left little room for appetizers (and, sadly, desserts). I'm not a big fan of live entertainment at dinner, but the pianist (primarily, but other instruments were in his arsenal) wasn't intrusive, and had a wide repertoire that pleased the ladies. All in all, an enjoyable meal. Very pricey, but worth it now and then for special occasions.

Arabellas has been a favorite of ours for a few years now. The decor is very upscale and the food is delicious. I have only been here for lunches and I have never been disappointed. The chef is from Italy and his influence is apparent in his menu choices. The service is impeccable and the waitstaff is usually all male. The prices for lunch are very reasonable, considering the quality of the plate. I have looked at the evening menu, and the prices are a bit higher, as would be expected. This restaurant has become one of our favorites in the area. High recommended!
