Food is delicious but pricey.
Food is delicious but pricey. It's nice to sit outside on a warm day and the bar is fun on a night out.

We've been there several times. 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.

Great Mother's Day Dinner
We 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!! ;-)

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.

Good food and service
We 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.

Artful Gourmet Bisto is consistentl
Artful 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.

Great atmosphere & great food
We 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.

My mother and i enjoying our meal here. The service was wonderful and the meal delicious. We will definitely return.

I 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.

Always Good Food
Enjoyed my meal at Artful Gourmet Bistro June 13th. I eat here frequently and have never been disappointed. The blackened Cobia was cooked perfectly and my girlfriend had the crab cake which was very good as well.
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We just had salads and wine, which were very good as usual. The service was excellent. Its a great go-to place that isn't over the top fancy and isn't plain-jane.

I have been going to this
I have been going to this restaurant since it opened. It is a very nice space, good food, convenient, and has a great menu. However, the owner decided to replace the hearty and healthy bread at the beginning of the meal with a boring white bread substitute, and the requests to bring the great bread back fall on deaf ears. It makes sense to offer a tastier bread or the original since so many customers have asked for it. It has not stopped me from returning to the restaurant often. It is just a suggestion that in the service industry and in the era of a new restaurant popping up weekly, it is vital to listen to your loyal customers.

We had the most amazing waiter.
We had the most amazing waiter. We had had Eric before and liked him very much and just want to say that he is efficient, pleasant and very accomadating. Did everything he could to see that everything was just the way we wanted it. What a gem!! Unfortunately, he is leaving at the end of the month but just wanted to give him the kudos he deserves. We are sorry to see him go and wish him all the best of luck in his new endeavor.

Nothing note worthy. The drinks were terrible except their breeze and the food was subpar. I wouldn't avoid going again if I were invited but I wouldn't rcmd it. It wasnt the worst experience but I was expecting a "best of baltimore" ... I didnt get that.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is consistently of high quality and vey tasty. Highly recommend.

Creative food, good service
We visited on restaurant week. I liked that you did not have to get a desert. You could get an extra appetizer or soup instead. The gazpacho soup was flavorful. They warned me that it had a lot of garlic but it actually I would have added more garlic. The seafood cocktail was generous with large lumps of seafood. I had the catch of the day. I don't remember the fish, but is was well prepared with fresh tomatoes and lots of Greek olives. My husband got a pasta with chicken and shrimp. The pasta still had a nice al dente bite to it.
We sat outside which was pleasant. The only problem was that two tables near us had some people who were talking in very loud voices and greeting people that they knew. We moved and the noise was OK.

Well valued neighborhood gem!
Pick your fovorite foods, pizza, pasta, mexican, salads and embellish it with great drinks, great service and happiness at the Artful Gormet. Portions and value are excellent. 3 dining styles inccluding ttables and booths in a nicely styled bistro, community bar scene and outdoor tables and chairs. Arrange groups in the pleaseent room off the bar. They also have a small prepared foods area for take out. My wife and I had small plates of sushi tuna, raviolis, chicken wraps and caesar salad with 2 drinks apiece for under $100. Filling and delicious.

One of my favorite all time restaurants, the food is consistently good, lovely atmosphere. Love it!

Great Little Find In Owings Mills
Menu is very diverse. The Paella was delicious. Will definitely come back to try the Michaelangelo!!!
9/13/2013 5:00:00 PM
My wife and I went here for an early dinner on our way back home from Pennsylvania. They were, according to the waitress, surprisingly slow for it being a Saturday and 6 o'clock in the evening.
We received complimentary, slightly toasted bread rolls which were great.
They had several interesting alcoholic mixes, though we didn't try any.
My wife thoroughly enjoyed her dinner called the 'Davinci' which was 2 chicken breast mashed potatoes and some various vegetables in a dark reddish sauce.
I was unimpressed by the Louisiana Barbeque. The horseradish mash was great, as was the broccoli. My issue was with the beef which fell short with flavor and was unfortunately dry.
Service was great, I probably was just unlucky with my dish.

A reliable favorite!
Consistently pleasant dining. A go to in the neighborhood for a lunch or dinner out.

Great first visit
We tried Artful Gourmet on whim and were delighted. The food was delicious with ample portions. We started with the seafood soup, which was hearty with just the right Chesapeake flair. My wife had the Mona Lisa salmon, which left her wanting more. The side of green beans was fresh with the right amount of snap left in the bean. I had the Sarakana chicken and shrimp. The coconut curry sauce was light with just the right touch of spice, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Food was very good. Would definitely eat here again!

This is a lovely little bistro
This is a lovely little bistro tucked away off the beaten path. The art theme is quaint. The food is the art, so there is no artwork in the picture frames. Cute. Hubby had the Moroccan chicken (sorry, I forget the "artful" name) and I had the last supper (paella). We both enjoyed our entrees, had enough to take home leftovers, and would definitely come back. Our server was just attentive enough and was able to answer questions about the menu. We recommend the Artful Gourmet.

Had a really great meal here a few nights ago. The location was a little off the beaten path, but sometimes it is better to be away from the main stream bustle. Highly recommend the mussel appetizer. Very generous portion (given that it was considered an appetizer).

As usual, Artful Gourmet Bistro delivered elegant, but quaint dining. The waitress was over -attentive, which interrupted our conversations at the table a few times, but that beats being ignored. Most of the food was excellent, but my steak could have been seasoned a tad bit better.

The restaurant is consistently good. The service is great but the food sometimes comes too fast. So it is not like dining but more like eating.

My last experience was not up to par...but this experience redeemed my usual positive dining experience. We had the 3-course offering, which was delicious! Great waitress too!
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
In an unimpressive location a very nice Italian restaurant with very good food, a nice variety of specials and excellent service. Will go here again when in the area. A daily special, slightly different eggplant Parmesan was delicious. All food came out at the right temperature, water glasses regularly refilled and a "take home" package readily provided.

Neighborhood Find w/Downtown Feel
Table was ready when we arrived at our reservation time (always a plus!). Good selections of specials for the day, extensive menu. Food was good and served with a wonderful presentation. Server was friendly and attentive, but allowed us privacy as well.
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always here when in the area
We visit the Owings Mill area about once a year. One of our dinner choices is Artful Gourmet Bistro where we know we'll enjoy a fine meal. This time both the crabcake entree and the Gorgonzola strip steak were excellent.
