Diner Reviews
  • "Two of us ordered eggplant rollatini with vodka sauce, Greek summer salad and lobster crab cake. My wife ordered gazpacho, the Greek salad and truffle chicken. Our other friend ordered ceviche, spinach and berry salad and the catch of the day, which was rockfish. The two of us who had the eggplant thought that it, and especially the vodka sauce, was fantastic. We were disappointed with the lobster crab cakes because they were dry and without much flavor. My wife was disappointed with the chicken because it had a spicy red sauce on it, although the menu description didn’t imply this. If it wasn’t for the outstanding eggplant, I would have been disappointed with this restaurant, but would go back just to have the eggplant."

  • "Three of us were looking for a place somewhere between Westminster and Towson. Fortunately for us, we chose Artful Gourmet. Being my first time, I wasn't sure what to expect, especially during busy Restaurant Week; but we were pleasantly surprised and favorably impressed. We started with a drink at the bar. The bar tender was very educated about the wines and other beverage choices. We had a lovely three-course dinner after that. I had halibut (excellent), my husband had lamb chops (outstanding), and my friend couldn't say enough good things about the chicken. The others courses, soups and salads, were wonderful too, and made with exceptionally fresh ingredients. If you haven't been to Artful Gourmet, you don't know what you're missing. Go!"

  • "This is, as always, an overpriced dining experience. It is just the only "decent" restaurant in my area. I didn't want to go far and I wanted something other than fast, greasy food so Artful foots the bill. Speaking of the bill, $25 (including tip) for a caesar salad, diet coke and 1 split dessert....WOW!"

  • "I was looking for a new place to take my dad for his birthday. I found Artful Gourmet, and I couldn't be happier. Our waitress, Jessica, was excellent! She communicated well, explained the dishes, took care of my dad, and accommodated our special requests without hesitation. We had the eggplant appetizer (absolutely delicious), the yellow curry dish, and one of the chicken dishes. All were very tasty and seemed freshly prepared. I really had no complaints, except maybe the chicken in the curry dish was a hair dry. Even the bread was tasty. We'll definitely be back to try more of the menu."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "This was my second visit to Artful Gourmet Bistro and I wasn't disappointed. The food selection is varied with pastas, seafood, salads, and meats. We were pleased with each of our choices. The pasta was delicious, not overcooked. We will definitely eat here again."

  • "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."

  • "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..."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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 "

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."
