Is parking easily available?

Plenty of parking

Are you taking reservations for Easter Sunday?

I think they are.

Are the prices fair?

I would say the price is fair for fresh everything, great service, knowledgeable staff, and a relaxing ambiance. Would I take my 10 year old? Probably not for a meal, because I dont think she would appreciate it. (Her palate is more of a chicken nuggets or cheeseburger, lol). Do I unceremoniously hint where I would like to go to celebrate my events in life? Yes, shamelessly so. Birthday? Arabella's would be nice. Promotion? Arabella's would be nice. Need a night out with friends? Arabella's would be nice.

How do I register for the birthday dinner coupon?

Go online to their website. Fill out the form, print and take it when you go. You will be asked for your driver's license. Enjoy your birthday!

Do you have gift certificates

Yes

Is there a dress code?

No tank tops,flip flops

Fast service, excellent food. The deserts are good as well. Side note: As out of towners I met up with a few friends for lunch at Arabellas, I brought a friend a expensive bottle of tequila as a gift, she forgot it in the restaurant and 2 months later they still had it for her 👍🏼.

I’m very disappointed. We went in Arabellas with our 1 year old baby around 3-4 pm. I just wanted to show to my husband their service and menu. But in short time ( 4-5 minutes) one man in costume approached to our table and asked us to move in other place because our baby for him was a little bit loud. He promised, we will receive the same service. We ordered just desert (table side) and coffee. Nobody told us that the baby isn’t allowed in this restaurant. Finally we didn’t receive the same service like others, we received 2 plates with ice cream , no service. Then we asked to call this man in costume, but he was very busy and he just ignored us. Be careful guys, babies isn’t allowed in this restaurant. Sincerely, my baby doesn’t have time to be loud , because they came in very short time after we seated.

I've seen restaurants like this in movies. My husband surprised me for my birthday and brought me here. It was a experience I'll never forget. The steak melted in your mouth. The piano player was amazing and they even wrote happy birthday on my plate

Wife and I love Arabellas. It's upscale, nice atmosphere, piano player, who's great, and just provides a great dinning experience. We have found the food to be consistent and fresh and delicious. Good wine selection, great desserts. Great place to celebrate special occasions. I have recommended Arabellas to friends and family.

Had a birthday dinner for my wife tonight and the steak was great. She had the fish and it was by far the best she has had in a long time. But the lobster bisque to me was the star of the show. Loved it. Our waiter justin was on top of everything and we waited on nothing. Loved the pain of man as well.

This is an upscale restaurant with excellent ambiance, service, and food. The decor dressed up the brick walls and the piano player helped set the mood with a wide variety of music from mellow to upbeat. Our server, Vinnie, was friendly and attentive.The fresh food was well prepared, nicely presented, and very tasty. We were too full to order dessert but at the end of our meal, the waiter and pianist came to our table with apple cake and ice cream singing Happy Birthday to my husband! The pianist played the accordion and several diners sang along. We each had a spoonful of the dessert. But it was so delicious that we forced ourselves to eat it. This was a very nice surprise and the perfect end to a wonderful dining experience.

The crab cake sliders were excellent. The fries are crispy outside and creamy inside. The beef barley soup was good, meaty but cut to thick for a soup. Professional staff, clean, comfy atmosphere and quiet for lunch.

We just had 3 of the take out dinners being offered during the virus crisis. Fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp, Shrimp Scampi and a New York strip steak and all 3 were outstanding. If you want to be assured of great food that is from the best restaurant in Winter Haven at a great price be sure to give them a try. You won't be sorry!

This is a solid classic Italian cuisine choice. Service is excellent. There was a tartness or something to the bolognese that didn't sit well with me, but they quickly replaced it with a dish of lasagna that was superb. At lunch it was relatively quiet and were had no wait for a table. My friend had been at dinner before and said it was full and only slightly louder. Maybe the white table cloths help soften the sound, or maybe just inspire respectful volume from patrons. Either way the atmosphere was very comfortable. There is street parking as well as a garage a block away. Prices were quite reasonable for high quality Italian.

We love going to Arabellas! We can always count on great food and service! The staff, piano man & chef always remember us! Kim loves the Steak Dianne so each birthday she chooses to have her birthday dinner here! The lava cake is to die for! We ordered the creme brulee this time which is Kim's favorite! The portions are always enough for take home. The filet is so tender we don't even need a knife to cut it! This is definitely the best restaurant in the area!

Absolutely delicious! Wait staff were very friendly and attentive. We liked the piano player UNTIL he pulled out his accordion to serenade my sister with his rendition of Happy Birthday. Please stop that tradition. It was very loud and not fitting in a restaurant of this high caliber. I could see other diners who were annoyed as well.

Excellent food, decent service. The pasta was very flavorful. Particularly the butternut squash was excellent. The scallops were well done and the veggies aldente. The desserts were extremely well executed. To top it up there was live music from a pianist who was quite good. Infact he did three songs on request, godfather, breakfast at Tiffany’s and finally a Star Wars , complete with a Darth Vader mask! What an expected surprise. Really enjoyed the evening.

Wow! Honestly, I personally believe that this place is probably the best restaurant in Polk County. If you live in Lakeland it's definitely worth the drive. I had the Chateaubriand and it was one of the best steaks I've had in my life, and I've eaten a lot of steaks. I also highly recommend the cherries jubilee for dessert it's made tableside and has amazing flavors!

Had a most tasty dinner. Celebrating our anniversary. The service is impeccable. The only negative is, we ordered cocktails and it was a while before they were served. Other than that, awesome!!

I just love this restaurant! We do not get there as much as we used to but I make sure each year to celebrate my birthday here! The steak Dianne is amazing!!! The filet can be cut with a fork, it's so tender!! Everyone is always so nice and make it worth the little extra you pay to dine here!! The atmosphere is relaxing. Unfortunately, this area does not have a lot of decent restaurants and for some reason the planning & zoning board keeps overwhelming the area with fast food restaurants, nail salons, tire stores & dollar stores!!! So if you would like to step away from the garbage and enjoy a relaxing night out with good food & company, definitely make reservations to dine here!!!!

$$$$, slightly over cooked chicken (chicken marsalla) and the sauce was off. I liked the blend of pasta with the chicken. It was noisy between the piano, the accordian, singing and conversations competing to be heard. This meal did not meet the value of the money spent.

Awesome environment to eat in. Quite enjoyable. We went on my friend's birthday, so there was a guy who came in with an accordion. He played happy birthday for her. It was sweet. If you do come here though, don't forget your money. This ain't no McDonald's; this is top tier pricing.I shall be coming back to try some other food though. It was an enjoyable evening.

Prompt and very attentive service, but also allowed us to set the pace.Meals were great. We had caprese salad for an appetizer, and for dinner I had the twin filet mignon medallions and my wife had veal marsala. We enjoyed tiramisu for desert.. This is truly a wonderful place. It's a bit on the expensive side, but worth it.

I came here with a friend and had a great time. Our waitress was great and we had good service. The restaurant was mostly clean but the booths felt old and a little dirty. Also, I asked for extra pepperoni on the pizza and in my mind that meant not seeing a lot of cheese and when the pizza came out it seemed like it was regular on the amount of pepperoni on it. The pizza was greasy but delicious and that doesn’t bother me but for some people it might.

The house salad was better than what I make (and I make a pretty good one)! I went for lunch. Not as extensive or as expensive as the dinner menu. Highly recommend.

First time at this upscale restaurant with friends. Superb service, amazing dishes. Wish I could post a picture of our Eggplant Parmesan, however it was "devoured" quickly. However, here's the dessert we could not turn down .... Cannolli, Flan & Tiramisu! Excellent!!

This is the best lasagna I’ve ever had and this promotion that’s going on is definitely worth it I would come back home if I could actually afford to eat here i also got to try their chicken Alfredo and it was ok compared to the lasagna. Not to say it was bad or anything. I just really like their lasagna
