    The service, the energy and experience was fantastic! We went for brunch and probably one of the best in town! You have to try the peanut butter French toast, noting like it.

    I have been to Artmitage several times, always very pleased with both the food and service!I ordered the Ceasar Chicken Salad. I couldn't believe the size of it! Very small portion of romaine, the chicken was flavorful as was the dressing on the side. Very overpriced for the portion. The waitress has waited on me before and always friendly and gracious!However, this time, she was a tad bit lax on the service.It took her quite a long time to get us our checks after we asked for them and we had explained that we were on our lunch hour-then it took her almost 13 minutes to get the cards/change back because we were watching the clock to return to work on time.One of the foursome had to get up and ask for the cards/change.

I had called ahead to be certain that they arrived. But all in all it was a great time and I will gladly go again. Excellent service. Excellent food. I like this place.

    Apparently our OpenTable reservation hadn't been noticed, so we had to wait almost an hour at the bar for a table. We took the time to have a couple glasses of wine, and share an appetizer while we waited. The place has a nice ambiance, and luckily we had no other plans for the evening, so we had a good time while we waited. Service was friendly and responsive. The food was great. Armitage is definitely somewhere I want to go back to.

    The food, wine, and service were excellent; the space is pleasant and fun. It appears like a bar/lounge with food, but they obviously play close attention to the food choices and preparation. The wine list was good, and the red wine was properly cool. The prices are a little high, especially for the wine, which is why we went on half-price Monday night. We got a $70 bottle for $35 and all the food was half-price, too. And then the bill came and they had added 18% gratuity to the original prices, plus tax. The waiter was terrific, but I don't think they should force me to tip on twice what we paid plus tax., so I objected. They said the tip was "suggested" but the credit card receipt included it and a line for more GRATUITY. So watch out

    Great restaurant for foodies,culinologists and mixologists alike. Get there early for discounted appetizers and drinks. Great selection of Martinis and appetizers. We had the margharita pizza as an appetizer. My wife had the pineapple upside down martini while I had the regular martini with stuffed olives. Try the vegetable ravioli in a light sherry cream sauce. The best ever. I had the baked halibut which was very good. Next time I'll try the lamb. Too many great foods and not enough appetite.
