Diner Reviews
  • "I'm glad that I've found this restaurant. I will certainly be back for many, many occasions."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Service was great, including full staff. Food is always great and dining room is comfortable."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Dependable experience, always meets my expectations whether a business lunch or dinner with my wife."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Food was good as was the service. It as been great every visit so far. We usually get some of the specialty dishes but this visit we tried some of the dinner salads. The salads were fresh and loaded with chopped veggies. I got the one with a tuna steak on top."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We enjoyed the lamb chops and chicken pan roasted with white wine, lemon and garlic. The lamb was especially good with a nice orange-balsamic reduction (was it really orange or plum?!?!) The Mezzacorona Pinot Noir was very nice; I'll look for it in my local wine store. The Raspberry Amaretto cake was scrumptious and, resembling a wedding cake, a fitting finish for our 41st wedding anniversary."

  • "Had to go somewhere close to an event. This place showed some promise so we tried it. Everyone's apps and entrees were overcooked, the artichoke dip had cheddar cheese sprinkled on top like I do with my dogs food and our waitress was definitely a few drinks ahead of everyone in the restaurant. We ordered the Veronese shrimp gorgonzola which was basically shrimp with grilled bread and we got shrimp wrapped in some kind of cured meat. The downside to that was the shrimp had not been fully pealed as it appears it should have been. I really try to pull back the reigns and give places the benefit of the doubt, but if you had the option to go to Woodberry Kitchen, Ouzo Bay or Wit and Wisdom, do it."

  • "My mom loves the Artful Gourmet, and I find it really really nice. We have a standing New Years Eve date there. The menu is always interesting and the prices are decent. The outdoor patio is just delightful. My meals have not all been great, and I am usually content with an appetizer and a salad. The Kandinsky quesadilla never disappoints and happy hour seems pretty busy."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Just a delightful place....outstanding food and service and all at a very reasonable price. Extremely well prepared and served. The staff is extremely attentive. The Artful Gourmet exudes quality. This is our second time here and I will clearly be coming back again and again."

    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We totally enjoyed the food. Interesting choices and well executed. However the service had a lot to be desired. Once we gave our order, the waitress did not stop by the table to check on us, despite the fact that I wanted to order a beer and we needed a refill on the bread that originally came with one piece for each of us. "

  • "I love this restaurant. My husband and I accidentally found this one night and have been going there since. We have made it a point to try a different dish, every time we are there, as so many of their menu items look great. We have yet to be disappointed, and we are half way through the menu. :-) Try their Pieta Appetizer, their salad's are amazing and their main courses are each fantastic. Love this gem..."
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "Having eaten here often and having made a reservation (for 2), I was disappointed when offered a very small table. After turning that down, the only table offered was in the back room. I perceive that room to be for large groups since I myself have hosted and been to group events there. Since I was with an out of town guest I agreed to eat there. I was not happy with the location but made the best of it. Everything else was fine but it was not my best experience here."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "The food was ok, not bad, but not as good as I would have expected for the price. Nearly $90 for dinner and a bottle of wine for 2. Our sever was great!"
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "We had a great time for Mother's day. Unique choice of entrees, great shrimp corn chowder soup and good sandwiches. A foodie would love this place. "

  • "The food at Artful Gourmet is always consistent. Interesting menu. The best part of our experience was the very attentive service. Drink menu was fun too!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "We had a great dining experience, with excellent service. It was our server's first day on the job (I think her name was Liz) and we were most impressed with her expertise and delightful manner. My sea bass was superb, and the strip steaks that my husband and a friend had were excellent!"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "We have been to Artful Gourmet several times before and this visit was as good as the other visits. The service was great as always and the food quality was perfect. We like the specials offered each day as well as the regular menu. My wife has diabetes and the staff makes the dishes that she can eat without messing up her glucose counts. The food quality and variety of dishes is always the best "

The service was impeccable, the food delicious and the staff all very friendly with great customer service! I LOVE this place!! I highly recommend Artful Gourmet to all for brunch, lunch and dinner, since I've experienced them all! What a gem!!!!!"

  • "Have loved this restaurant since it opened. The filet mignon, the chicken, the shrimp, the crab cakes .... all outstandingly delicious and tender. I enjoy the specialness I feel when I'm there. Great warmth and character. The owner is a gem and he's so gracious."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "I've been to the Artful Gourmet many times for lunch and a few times for dinner. I've never had a bad meal. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. Our service last Friday night was great. Our waitress was attentive without being intrusive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend AG for a casual lunch and a casual to special occaison dinner."

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed a well prepared, tasty and well served supper in a quiet yet busy restaurant."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "We always enjoy our meals at Artful Gourmet. The atmosphere is very relaxing and pleasant and the staff are always very attentive. Food is always enjoyable too. They are also very accommodating to our three-year old who enjoys exploring every nook and cranny before her meal."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "We celebrated a family birthday, and each of us enjoyed our experience at Artful Gourmet. Our waitress was great, the food was very good (absolutely loved the calamari!) and beautifully presented. Beer drinkers appreciated the craft selection and wine options were excellent. We will definitely return."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Artful Gourmet Bistro is one of my all time favorite restaurants, it is consistently great in all categories. I never hesitate to take a guest there as it never disappoints. Service is excellent as well."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "It is always just okay to dine here. Artful is the only decent restaurant close to home, food is okay, nothing special! $50 for 2 salads and 1 dessert, NO DRINKS!!"
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "We have always found Artful a great neighborhood spot. Both our entrees, the Pieta and Michealango, were outstanding. The staff is both attentive and knows us as regulars. We are happy to have a great restaurant that serves consistently flavorful food."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Went St. Patrick's day weekend. Specials were ok. Corn beef and Cabbage was fair. Rockfish had an odd sauce and the green rice tasted odd. Other meals were ok. But the waiter ignored us. First we didn't get bread, and had to eventually ask the busboy. Then when he finally asked if we wanted dessert, he had to go get the dessert menu. It took so long for him to return to ask our selections, we changed our minds and decided not to get dessert. He save us the calories and costs of 2 desserts. He didn't seem overly busy, just seemed to be roaming the restaurant. Regulars seem to get more attention from the wait staff."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "I’ve eaten at The Artful Gourmet a number of times and the food and service are consistently good and well above average for area restaurants. The menu is creative, using famous artist’s names for the names of their dishes, and the service is always top-notch. The food has never disappointed. The ambience is slightly lacking and a little boring, although the somewhat cavernous layout of the restaurant is interesting and the multiple rooms accommodate large parties well. This is one of my go-to places in the Owings mills area and I look forward to returning."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "I have been many times and always get a good dinner or lunch. They have a casual and dinner menu,so you can dine at any price. I like to go after a movie in that area since there are only chain restaurants in the Owings Mills area. It is always nice in the summer to eat outside."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "The menu doesn't change much, so you can always count on ordering your favorite (assuming it's pasta). This visit we tried two of the specials, wahoo and seafood risotto, and we loved both of them. Delicious."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Specials are worth the try! Patrick in the bar is the BEST! Service was outstanding and the owner makes you feel at home. I will be back."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The atmosphere was nice and service prompt. We were basically forgotten for most of the meal, which I didn't mind. The steak was very under seasoned and had no flavor and the crab cake did have large pieces of lump meat, but too much filler with no flavor. It has been said that the lunch menu is much better."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "This is the place to go if you want a nice piece of fish! We went here for New Years and had Tuna steak with lump crab on top, it was prepared perfectly! We just went back again Feburary 22 and we both had the special which was a Seabass, I have to say it was the best I had ever had! GREAT PLACE!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "This place is fantastic. I've been twice now and each time, the food was fantastic. Our server was a little slow but it was a Saturday night so she was very busy. Definitely make reservations because it does fill up. HIGHLY recommended!!"

  • "Iron Bridge is our local spot so we're a little spoiled. I went to the Artful Gourmet with my wife for dinner. Wine was good. The room was nice. Service was super slow and inattentive. Decent crab cake, nothing special. Nice salad. Over cooked oysters. Steamed vegetables with just a little salt. Cost as much as Iron Bridge! Really? Won't go back, not a good value."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Our group of four were first time dinners. We thoroughly our dinners and drinks. The menu was heavy on the seafood but we all found entrees that we enjoyed. Service was very good, we did however miss dessert which was our fault. The server asked if we would like any coffee , tea or dessert. We all said coffee and thought desert menus were on the way. Oops. This just mean that the next time we are there, and we will be coming back, we will be sure to get dessert, which i bet are as good at the meal was. Thanks again and we look forward to returning."
