    Food was good, setting is lovely, but very noisy -needs more soft furnishing to dampen. Second time at restaurant, first time was very noisy but food was great. This time we had to wait 30 mins for table (party of 8), despite having reservation and there is no bar area to have cocktail. Service okay but slow.

    We went to Artistry on the Green for our anniversary and loved it. The staff seated us at an intimate table and made sure we had everything we needed. The food was delicious and inventive, and our waitress' recommendations were great. At the end of the meal, they put a candle in the dessert to wish us a happy anniversary and gave us a card with the entire staff's signatures. We will definitely be going back, special occasion or not.

    The setting feels very historical - but the chairs are hard & your bum slips forward in them. Food very nice. The brioche french toast lovely but leave off the sauce - much too sweet. We enjoyed it a lot & will go back with friends.

    The dining room was nicely modulated for sound; despite the large room and the wood floors, the ownership has done a great job of not making the sound (and the sound system) too loud. I know this is a strange compliment to lead off with, but with restaurant noise-levels reaching higher and higher its refreshing. The food was excellent; seasonal and local. Our service was excellent as well, with a server who demonstrated knowledge and comfort with the menu as well as the wine list.

My husband is hardly pleased but he wants us to go back every Sunday for Brunch( Lol..). Overall, we had a great experience, very friendly staff, and very good food. I look forward to going back.

    We showed up on Sunday night after a movie in Burlington. It was a rainy night. In addition to my girlfriend and me, there were only two tables filled. Our server was incredibly attentive and knowledgeable and he presented each dish with aplomb. The food was delicious, as was dessert. My plan is to go back for a delicious breakfast or brunch. The dining room is quite lovely.

    We dined at Artistry on the Green with our parents to celebrate their wedding anniversaries. What a joy to now have a Lexington option for special occasions. The dining room is designed to soften noise and we could hear each other. The service was excellent and unobtrusive. The staff are well versed in the history of the location, the restaurant name and our questions about the menu. Our experience exceeded expectations for atmosphere and fine dining. Kudos to Trisha and her family for their vision and their perseverance.

    Went for lunch and ordered from the Dine Out Boston menu. Chowder app was tasty, fresh; chick pea fritters were average. Croque Monsieur was also tasty but average. The salad and potato frites were both good - the frites especially were delicious. The mozzarella was dry with not that much flavor. Perhaps the "fresh, handmade" cheese was allowed to dry too much. The service was particularly slow. It took some time for the apps to arrive (20 mins) and the entrees several minutes after that. Sandwiches should not take an hour, even if the restaurant was jammed, which it was not. Deserts again came out several minutes after the sandwiches and were OK. The lunch was one and 3/4 hours. This would be difficult for a working lunch hour.

    It is a real pleasure to eat in Artistry which is in a magnificent new inn in one of the most historic towns in our country. The owners have created the most beautiful, pristine atmosphere where you can happily meet friends for lunch and eat well prepared, special dishes at a very reasonable price. I've not eaten there for dinner but have been told that although prices are considerably higher, the menu does not disappoint. No matter what, this restaurant is unique and memorable.

    Very impressive food!!!..can immediately taste the freshness, homemade bread, vegetables prepared to perfection.. My husband had bluefish light,moist..sauce ingredients fresh and light. I highly recommend the panna cotta.. I lived in Europe for years and this is the first panna cotta I have had in USA that equals my experience in Italy and Switzerland. The Yankee Pot Roast was absolutely yummy..meat tender, vegetables farm fresh and tasty! The service was kind and attentive. This is a real jewel! I had also come here for breakfast and lunch..the food has been equally superb.

    Was looking forward to a new restaurant in Lexington. Unfortunately, this one doesn't do it. First, the table was covered by a wet tablecloth - this was explained as necessary - a spray bottle was used to get out the wrinkles. Could not rest my arms on the table without feeling the cold and damp. The gazpacho soup was good, a little mild, but the corn garnish was nice. I love pot roast, but this slab - it was a slab - was not adequately infused with flavor, had a lot of fat and was tough. The root vegetables were sparse. A lovely nectarine dessert, but did not make up for the entree. The restaurant week offered only several dollars savings over ordering the individual servings ala carte. Sorry, but ....

    Enjoyed the dining room layout and staff very friendly and competent. Two of us ordered from the Dine Out Boston menu and tried some new menu additions. Vegetable risotto needed more overall flavor, pot roast delicious (with somewhat bland potato puree), good cocktails. Would try again for brunch or a regular menu dinner.

Far more sophisticated than I anticipated. The service was welcoming and professional. We ordered the clam chowder, quiche and the lobster cobb salad. Everything was delicious and nicely presented. I look forward to returning for dinner. Overall, a very pleasant place to dine!

    Artistry on the Green is an unpretentious restaurant in an updated New England Inn. Who knew such a restaurant even existed in the Lexington Inn. Excellent food, attentive service. The menu lists all the local places Artistry sources their food. The decor is simple and pleasing. Personally, it's a bit on the expensive side for it to be our weekly night out, but perfect for a bi-monthly or monthly treat, and especially for social outings, and special occasions. We discovered it when a friend brought us to Artistry on a weekend, and we thought it was so nice that we brought friends on a weeknight just to see if there was any difference between weekend and weekday....no difference, still great food and service.

    This is clearly a new establishment set in an older house near Lexington center. The renovation reflects a sense of style that compliments the architecture and the neighborhood. Before we even entered the restaurant we were greeted with a smile; warmth and attentiveness characterized all our dealings with the staff. They took and served our orders graciously and promptly. Our salads were fresh and not over-dressed. My fish tasted fresh and light, with a flavorful and artistic accompaniment of vegetables. The prices were competitive, given the quality and creativity of the menu. My only quibble would be with the ambient noise level as the dining room started to fill: it was hard to conduct a conversation with two soft-spoken seniors.

    Artistry on the Green is a great, convenient new alternative for dining in Lexington. Every item we ordered was clearly made with very fresh ingredients and prepared with extreme care and in an appealing manner. The quality and taste of each item, from the warm, fresh bread, to the appetizers, entrees and desert were excellent. We highly recommend the pot roast and scallops as well as the potato au gratin side dish and the nectarine crisp for desert. We'll definitely be returning soon and frequently.

    Some of the food was delicious, some nearly inedible. Started off with slow service, took forever to get our drinks. Starters (Caesar salads and charcuterie plate) were good (nothing special). On the plus side, the duck and the scallop mains were very good. Well cooked and delicious. However, the chicken was so dry as to be nearly inedible. Not sure we will be back. My husband insisted we go out for ice cream following the dinner to get the bad taste of his meal out of his mouth. (He had the chicken).

    Second time for dinner. Food is outstanding in quality, taste and presentation. The service seems to be a little scattered at times. On both occasions we were seated with menus and left waiting for 15-20 minutes before a drink order was placed. Would prefer to be offered a cocktail while we glance over the menu. Couldn't seem to get much info from our waiter in terms of menu recommendations. He was very pleasant and attentive when he was at the table but seemed to be MIA at times. I think an issue is the summer help has just started and the kids are still training. I would HIGHLy recommend this restaurant. The GM is there overseeing it all and appears to be quite involved in making it all run smoothly.
