Welcome to Ariana’s!
We are currently serving dinner Thursday Thru Sunday (closed on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday). We are offering the same menu for both in-house and take-out dining. Please see our current offerings below.
Take-out dining is available all nights we are open (please note time changes below).
For Take-out, please call 603-353-4405 the ‘day of’ between 2pm to 4pm to place your order. When you call, leave your name and phone number after the message. We will return calls in the order they were received to get your order and schedule your pickup time. Recently, we have seen an increase in both In-house and Take-out dining and, as a result, may need to limit the number of Take-out orders on a given evening. The time change for ordering is to allow our guests to make other dinner arrangements if necessary.
In House Dining
You must make a reservation for In-house dining, regardless of where you wish to sit. We begin seating at 5 pm.
We have removed half of our tables from the Front and Back Rooms to provide proper social distancing. The Front Room has four tables, the Back has five and the Bar is now limited to six seats. We also offer outside dining on our patio with an open tent for cover. Here we have five tables, socially distanced: two tables for up to 4 each, one table for up to 5 and two high-top tables seating 2 each. The patio is extremely popular so please plan ahead.
Guidelines from the State of New Hampshire for In-house Dining
We ask everyone to understand that we must uphold the NH Covid Guidelines to keep everyone safe; especially at this busy time with many people visiting the Upper Valley.
*You must make advance reservations for any seat in the restaurant or at the bar and arrive promptly at your scheduled time. If you arrive early or late, you may be asked to wait outside while we seat others.
* We cannot have people gathering at the front door, or while waiting for a table, so our reservation times are scheduled ten minutes apart. (This means we only have one 6.30 reservation, one 7:00 reservation, etc.) To accommodate this, we ask that you be flexible when booking your reservation and be sure to arrive on time.
* We cannot allow any parties larger than 6. No exceptions. We also cannot split a larger group between multiple tables. Sorry, six people is the maximum and, on the patio, five people the maximum.
* You must wear a mask any time you are not seated at your table. This means on arrival, when visiting the rest room or another table, and on departure.
Our staff is wearing masks, we are sanitizing frequently, and we want to keep everyone safe. Please understand and work with us to keep us all safe and get thru this.
Thank you very much for your support, understanding and patience.
Be well Chef Martin

Message from Chef Martin
Welcome to our restaurant. Our focus is on quality and variety in both our food and wine. I love wine and believe that wine is meant to be enjoyed with food. I look for quality and value in my wines. Offering a nice variety of wines from around the world, I like to ask my guests to try something new or ask us for a recommendation. Please enjoy our selection below. We are also working on a Cellar List which will feature some ‘big boys’. Be well and thank you so much for your support.
**Take-out Alcoholic Beverages by bottle only per order of Governor
