Arguably the very best fine dining experience in Bend, Oregon, and not only because there are very few, Ariana is truly a diamond in the rough of breweries that climb up and down Galveston Street on Bend's trendy Westside. Tucked inside a craftsman bungalow with front and back patios, Ariana offers a French-inspired seasonal menu from Chef Adrés and Ariana, along with an extensive wine list and signature cocktails.
Bend is incredibly lucky to be home to Juri Sbandati's true labor of love, Trattoria Sbandati. Juri grew up in Italy and brings us the best of traditional Italian cuisine. From handmade pastas to classic meat dishes and a variety of Italians wine that compliment the menu just right. The intimate setting is perfect for date night and smaller parties. If it's a taste of Italy you're after, look no further.
Executive Chef Joe Kim's imagination inspires the nightly specials at 5 Fusion, making each dining experience memorable, and no two dining experiences quite the same.

The menu consists of a well-rounded specialty sushi list, along with sharable appetizers and delicious entrees. The restaurant's modern, airy setting is perfect for larger parties and a great place to begin a night in downtown Bend.
