Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "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."

  • "the only thing I did not like was the fact that I made my reservation three weeks in advance for 8pm, and when we got there we were to we were going to have to wait 30 to 45 mins. we were told we could have a drink in the bar, f which we did and wound up just eating in the bar, and the wait staff in the bar were great."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We have been there 3 times since being told about this place. The service is exceptional and the waiter and waitress were very friendly. I love the idea of ordering hot food and it comes out piping hot. My husband and I love the atmosphere. We have already decided that we are going to make it a date to visit Artful Gourmet at least once a month."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Have eaten here a number of times and always find the food very good and satisfying. The wait staff were very attentive and helpful. They even brought me a delicious birthday cake just because the wait staff saw I had a gift at my table! Thanks!"
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "There was a quite understandable sitting delay despite having a reservation-it was Valentines evening. The food was great, the lighting was appropriate for a quiet romantic dinner with a special someone. The noise level left a lot to be desired. We had the misfortune of being sitted right next to a 6 person booth occupied by 6 idiots who were so loud you would think they were at a bazaar somewhere. Patrons sitting in the vicinity of that booth were exchanging glances and staring at this booth in the hope that these people took a hint and quieted down or that the management would address this -we exchanged knowing glances with our waiter. We skipped appetizers, dessert, wine, and merely ordered dinner and quickly got out of there...."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This restaurant was very disappointing. Even though we had a reservation for 8:45, we did not get seated until 9:30... and there were empty tables. They were giving preference to parties of more than two people, (and this was Valentine's Day) so it was like we didn't have a reservation. Once we sat down and complained about the wait, the waitor said, 'Well it;s valentine;s day'. Once we ordered our food it took another 45 minutes to deliver the food. The tables were so close together that there was no privacy."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I decided to give the Artful Gourmet a try for dinner as a new choice for my wife and I, other than waiting a bit too be seated we were both very happy. The food and service were good. Our waiter, Paul, was attentive and knowledgeable. We will be back."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We had a 9:15 reservation and were not seated until 10:00. I spoke to about 4 other groups and it seems as though everyone had a reservation for the same time."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My wife and I went to Artful Gourmet for our Valentines Day dinner. As always the food and the service was outstanding."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was okay although nothing really special. The main problem was finding the place. We went there twice. The first time we did not realize there was a third building with the restaurant. The restaurant was very crowded and although we eventually, in an hour got seats, we should have gotten immediate seats since we came exactly on time."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We had a valentines day reservation. For being such a busy night they had amazing service and food. We would visit Artful again."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Everything was great except for the hour long wait while others with the same reservation time walked right in and where given a table. The problem is that it depends when you made the reservation because they just go right down the list. The system needs a way to bump you to the top of that list when you walk in the door so that if two people have the same reservation time the one who gets there first is seated first. It was frustrating getting there at 6:45 for 7:15 reservations and not being seated until 7:45 while others walked in at 7:30 with 7:15 reservations and we're seated right away."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Lunch was delivered very timely. The menu had something for everyone."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "If you're in Owings Mills and don't want Chinese food or a chain restaurant, and want to keep the entree price in the $20 to $30 range, this is the place to go. Always a selection of good food in a Mediterranean vein, with interesting options -- when I go out I like to eat food I wouldn't be able to make at home. We've been here many times and on our most recent visit on Saturday the 9th, we had a nice evening entertaining an out-of-town guest. The only thing that detracted was that no one came by to refill our water glasses the entire time, until we were paying for the check. That's something the restaurant needs to address with its wait staff."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Artful Gourmet delivers extremely falvorful and delicious food in a cozy setting in Owings Mills. For an area bereft of many good restaurants, Artful Gourmet doesn't relax in the preparation of mediterranean influenced dishes. The Paella was fresh and the small chicken plate, the DaVinci, was savory and filling. The chopped salad left much to be desired, however, and the environs are a bit tight. One server was overly loud in addressing her tables and became a source of irritation for many patrons."

  • "Always great. This is our "go to" restaurant. Everyone we take there loves it!"

  • "This is a wonderful place to dine. Love, love, love the atmosphere! The door is delicious and the staff are great!! The desert menu could stand some improvement but we didn't have room for desert anyway so it didn't matter. Two thumbs up!"

  • "As usual, the food was great and the service was excellent. Paul is the best server at Artful Gourmet and did a great job again! Thank you for a great meal!"

  • "the paella was out of this world - good service from wait staff - ask for a certain table type hostess was not happy to move us to a diiferent table when we did not like her first choice."

  • "As usual, our experience at Artful Gourmet Bistro was very good. We totally enjoy the food as did the friends we were with. This is the second time in a row we have met the same couple there for an evening out. What can we say. We love it there. A bit of a wait for our table but not too terrible. The food was worth the wait. ."
