The atmosphere was elegant but not stuffy. Waiters were all very personable and gave good tips for the drink and food menus.

Both of us ordered mussels and Caesar salad. Mussels were fine but the bread brought to the table appeared to be 2 days old and was harder than toast. Waitress said she knew bread was not good before even serving it. So Why Serve It? We asked for another bread for our mussel sauce and she found 3 slices of edible bread. Later she brought the Caesar salad but no matter how much dressing we added there was no garlic or anchovy taste. In fact there was no taste except mayonnaise. The salad was ONLY romaine lettuce and cheese shavings, no croutons either. We told the waitress that it was tasteless and we didn’t want to eat it. The manager came over to hear our issues, and asked if he could bring us something else. We declined as we had had enough displeasure for the evening. He asked if we would like it removed from the bill. We said YES. We overheard the table of eight next to us inquiring about the bread also, and the waitress also told them there was a problem. Don’t know if I will be returning anytime soon , if at all.

I love this place. I would give my usual 5 stars, but on this visit my meal didn't really measure up to it's usual deliciousness. Everything I've ever eaten here has always been perfectly cooked, seasoned, and served; therefore it would be irresponsible of me to not recommend. My friend and I both had the Maryland Crab cake dinner entrée. The cake and the spinach was a bit salty, but not so much as inedible. The Manager was very gracious and willing to replace with something else, but we declined the offer. Mostly, because I was hungry and didn't want to wait. I love this place so much that one less than perfect dining experience will not keep me away. Plus the drinks have never failed to be anything but perfect.

I always visit Artful Gourmet for St Patricks day for their Corn Beef and Cabbage. This year it was not good, the corned beef was not tender, the cabbage was under cooked.. I was so dissatisfied, our server was great, suggested the Rockfish dish which was not in the St Patrick Day spirit but was cooked really good. I would still recommend this place and I will continue to visit this restaurant. Hoping next year St Patrick day menu will have more items listed and that the corned beef and cabbage is great.

Thank you

When I arrived with my friend we had a reservation. We asked for a booth and was denied having been told there were other reservations. For the next hour we were there only one couple came in. The place was empty. I watched as young server directed them to a table. Lady pointed at booth and that's where they sat. When we left they were the only people in the place. Not what I would consider very accommodating or friendly.

We went out for Valentine's Day. It was our first time there and we found that the restaurant had a nice ambiance and the staff were very accomodating. We had a reservation and when we arrived we were seated relatively quickly. Out server was very personable and attentive, but not to attentive so we could enjoy each others company without feeling like someone is interrupting every five minutes. The food was delicious, I had lamb chops and he had a shrimp and chicken curry dish...very delicious. Overall, would recommend the restaurant for any event.

Food was okay. Wife and I went for Valentine's day and we both ordered cook to temp meat, both medium well, and both were I would say medium rare. They were busy and the food came out fast. Usually I would like that but not when I order a steak or a rack of lamb.
Also we had a reservation for 7:45. We didn't get seated until 8:20. What's the purpose of having a reservation? I digress. Ambiance was very nice, lots a very nice paintings. Our server Liz was very nice and helpful. I'd give this place another chance because I understand they may have been busy. 3 out 5 stars.

Friends who hadn't seen each other in years and we stayed for hours.
The wait staff were beyond nice, friendly, and supportive.
I will come back again and more often now.

Food has always been fun and inventive. Now I know this is a good place.
And I believe in frequenting a place where good people work and care!

Enjoyed an early evening dinner with friends. My only complaint and it is important was that we were not notified that the New Year's Eve menu was a "special" menu with inflated prices. That was a big turnoff upon being handed the menus after being seated. The manager apologized saying she aimed to correct the situation next NYE. She did not charge us for our desserts which was a nice gesture.

I can't recall how we heard about this restaurant, but it was worth the trip. We found everything to be just great, food selection, bar selection, preparation, presentation. It was only at the very end when I really needed more water but the waitperson was done with us once she gave us the check. I would go again when we are looking for something in the suburbs, not downtown.

We had a delicious casual meal with excellent service. We were pleasantly surprised when our server brought us a generous piece of yummy cake with whipped creme on the side for desert
and said "Happy Holiday".... enjoy!
We certainly did not expect that... it was a perfect way to end our meal.

Artful Gourmet is reliable for a casual get together. We've eaten here before and the food is good, with a decent selection of menu items. On the plus side for the turkey burger was the avocado and tomato and the chipotle mayo. On the downside was that the turkey burger was pretty dry. The other three folks at the table were pleased with their food. We had a very nice server who was quite attentive without being intrusive.

The host, David, greeted us with a wide smile and seated us with a very friendly and gracious manner. The food was very well presented and was very tasty. Unfortunately the vegetable, broccoli, was served cold as was the mashed potatoes to one guest. Our server, Leann, was very nice , informative, and attentive.
