Winter Haven is truly blessed to have a magnificent establishment that cares so much for its patrons. From dinner, to the live musician, and the extravagant show that diners enjoy with the food, there's really nothing left undone. Special just begins to describe this place. If you're not too worried about the price, or are willing to try a very... More

Really wowed her! Everything was so perfect! The waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu and was able to make the evening great. Everyone helped me ask her to marry me! Even the guests at the next table were amazed.

Set menu with five entries, all were selected by at least one of our eight guests and all raved about them but one of the filets ordered medium rare came medium and they should have sent it back. Sword fish , lamb, lobster, duck and filet mignon were offered. Appetizers and deserts were also great.

So far the only five star restaurant in Polk County (that I have found). It is my go to place to take out of town (and out of country) guests. I have been there with Australians, Ecuadorians, and people from other parts of the U.S. They never let me down. The atmosphere is great, service great, and food consistently great.... More

There's are multiple reasons that Arabella's in Winter Haven, FL has been voted as one of the top to most romantic restaurants in Florida. Start with the comfortable, laid back elegance. Add a great wine selection for Italian fare along with the wine steward, Franco. The singing piano player can play almos anything you request, and the waitstaff are attentive... More

Very nice and classy atmosphere. The food is well prepared - fresh- authentic Italian. You order by course and it can add up quickly. Plan to be there a while if they are busy.

This restaurant has all of my requirements for fine dining... great atmosphere, well-trained waiters, and excellent cuisine! We go at least once a month. They have a very good wine list and usually on weekends there is a pianist. Sometimes we meet up in the next door Ave. Bar and have cocktails and appetizers there then go into dining room.... More
