Enjoyed the crab cake sandwich, which was delicious! Service was attentive and fast. Winter, so we dined inside, however they have great outdoor patio seating. Hope to be able to enjoy this in the warmer months.

As usual, I enjoyed my dinner at Artful Gourmet, even at this challenging time when few quality restaurants still remain open. We started off with a shared fresh & crispy calamari appetizer, a definite fave. I had The Raphael entree which was very good, and VERY Hot!!
The Yukon potatoes were seasoned well, and the green beans were appeasingly crunchy. The service staff was friendly and efficient. Good job.

It was all good, though outdoors. A heater by the table would have made the experience more comfortable. Or, setting some tables on the sunny side of the building or parking lot.

So disappointing! Usually a great drink and meal as well as dessert. All I enjoyed was the dessert--- the one that was served to us as a second apology for the wrong meals and, before that, for waiting for 20 minutes for any service at all. Hope this is not the future but I am not keeping it on top of my list.

We decided to try Artful Gourmet for my husband’s birthday dinner, I hadn’t been to the restaurant in 3 years. The new restrictions due to covid -19 have really changed the dining experience!? I made a reservation for 8:15pm through Open Table and we arrived at 8:13pm. We were seated, the table and seats were sticky and had food on them. We were placed at another table and given the menus by the hostess. By 8:29pm we hadn’t been addressed by the waiter/waitress for drinks or to place and order? The menus are now printed on paper so they can be thrown away for safety - however the print is so small it’s a little hard to read. 8:43pm a young lady finally takes our order (there was more focus geared toward the outside diners) instead of the 8 patrons whom were seated inside? We finally got our salads (chicken in the Hakousai salad was dry) and Winslow Wontons at 9:15pm. The remaining entrees followed suit around 9:28pm? Salt and pepper should be offered or packets should be inside the wrapped plastic flatware. It shouldn’t take that long from entry to seating to be served an entree ever ... even with safety precautions in place? We are done of our meals and took the rest home. Not sure if we’ll be returning for another meal.

Thank you for your feedback on your recent visit. We are so sorry to hear about your dining experience and we hope you can accept our sincere apology. We will be looking into this. Thank you also for your suggestion with the salt & pepper. Your server should've asked if you needed any condiments to accompany your meal and it seems this was never done. We hope that this visit won't keep you from returning and we hope on your next visit you will see an improvement to your last visit.

We've been going here for years. I've bought my parent's here for Father's Day about 5 yrs ago. They have now made it a regular to go place. However, myself & my mom ordered the Raphael it wasn't as good as it usually is this time around. The salmon was unflavorful & creamy dijon sauce was very bland. So this was the one time we didn't enjoy our food. I am not the person to send food back but I really wanted to because it was nasty.

Neicy, we are so sorry to hear you and your mom did not have a memorable visit. We certainly apologize, and wish you would've brought this to the attention of your server as we would've replaced it at the time. We appreciate you being such a loyal customer, and we hope that this last visit won't keep you from returning. If you ever are not happy with your meal please just let us know as we never want a customer to leave hungry or disappointed. We hope to see you back soon.

Tucktaway in a local neighborhood in new town, we had high hopes due to the quaint outdoor seating and lighting and packed tables. However the service was in attentive, the food salty and unimaginative, and the neighborhood strangely filled with speeding idiot show offs disturbing the peace with revving engines and ungodly loud music. Meh.

Took my Sister there for lunch last Friday and returned for Dinner. Never did that before so you might guess that I really enjoyed the experience. And you would be quite correct. Enjoyed the Fillet and Crab cake for dinner and the Paella for Lunch. Was pleased with both experiences. Would recommend to anyone. Will be back soon.

All 4 in our party ordered the Hokusai salad. The chicken was dry, the salad was very soggy, and the crispy noodles were stale. After dining at this restaurant many times, this was the first bad meal.

We sat outside because of COVID. Although it was a hot day, the shade from the umbrella and the trees made it pleasant. The lights gave it ambience. Our waitress was very personable.
We felt very comforted by the precautions taken to ensure a sanitized , but still lovely, dining experience.
