Artful Gourmet Bistro
Wonderful -took friends fromWonderful -took friends from out of state. They enjoyed it also.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable restaurantFood is always consistently good as is service. Never had a bad experience here.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways goodI often go to the Artful Bistro with my girlfriends. I especially like sitting outside in the warmer weather. The only complaint I have was that the hostess told me there was a happy hour going on in the bar. After placing our drink order, the bartender told me that the wines we ordered were not part of the Happy Hour list and that the price was the price.
We were shocked that 1) the hostess didn't know that and 2) the bartender didn't tell us.
Other than that, the food is predicable, the wine ok, but the location and a quick dinner out with girlfriends is usually good.
We will return there again soon.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat diningMy mother and i enjoying our meal here. The service was wonderful and the meal delicious. We will definitely return.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphere & great foodWe love this place and eat here often. The food is of very high quality and good value for money. The atmosphere is very relaxing and perfect for anyone who prefers a quieter environment than provided at some of the larger chains.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMArtful Gourmet Bisto is consistentlArtful Gourmet Bisto is consistently good. The service is always excellent. I was there with three other people. Two people got the halibut dish and one got the veal chop. They all LOVED their dishes and practically licked the plate. I got the crab cake and was disappointed in it. That is why I did not give an Outstanding for food.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and serviceWe were in Owings Mills for the NCAA Women's Lacrosse championship and had to eat early. The staff were very accommodating when we told them we were in a hurry and when we asked if one dish could be prepared without garlic. Both my husband and I had great dinners. We'd definitely eat here again if we are back in the Baltimore area.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Artful!We have been to the Artful Gourmet Bistro several times now. It is always a pleasure. The food is flavorful, well presented and plentiful. It is a great place to dine and actually converse while doing so. This is getting to be our go-to restaurant when we want a night out, though reservations are a must on the weekends.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day DinnerWe went with my boyfriend's parents for Mother's Day. She is an artist and loved the art on the walls and the artsy names of the food. The food was excellent. The service was good, but our waiter forgot a few requested items multiple times. Otherwise an amazing decision. And I was praised many times for finding it and making the reservation! Bonus points!! ;-)5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great and enoughThe food was great and enough to take home for the next day.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful LunchWe had a group of 8 and everything was great.

Food is always consistently fresh and artfully prepared. Interesting daily specials; most recently had the Moroccan Sea Bass -- excellent! Fish was very fresh; great combination of sauteed onions, peppers and herbs in a tomato-based sauce. My wife had the the Pieta = eggplant rollatini -- nicely done; eggplant was cooked just right; not over cooked or mushy; full flavor and still firm -- delicate tomato sauce.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is delicious but pricey.Food is delicious but pricey.

Restaurant was full, but our waitress made sure we were taken care of.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMI've eaten in the bar areaI've eaten in the bar area and had carry out, but this was my first time eating in the dining room. I liked that we were able to make reservations and online through Open Table. The restaurant was full when we came in, but the noise level was very tolerable, we didn't have to yell to hear each other. The wine list had a lot of choices and it was hard to pick just one dessert from the list. It was our waiter's second night, but I think he did a good job for someone new. The food was delicious and inventive. I recommend the crab wontons and Baroque salad.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorite restaurants.One of my favorite restaurants.

We will continue to go back time and timr again3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMNoise was moderate becauseNoise was moderate because we were seated in the room beside the bar, so whenever anyone opened the door to go through, the noise from the bar was very loud.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMgood living in the neighborhoodArtful Gourmet Bistro is a great neighborhood restaurant. It does its best work when it remains true to its roots of good, casual food done well. Occasionally it tries to create higher end dishes with higher end costs not suited to the location or the food. This night we had a bottle of wine that was well priced and of nice quality. ARtful Gourmet excels at its soups and the chicken enchilada soup was no exception. Flatbreads are also wonderful at the Bistro. We had the crab flatbread and the crust was crisp and the topping well decorated with crab and cheese. Salads are also excellent with good flavorful protein toppings. For a delicious light meal, try the stuffed lettuce leaves as an entree rather than an appetizer.2/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
