It was our first and last visit to this restaurant. We were given the wrong appetizer and my steak was overdone. The staff didn't really have any pride in the establishment. They were just "at work". And the prices were too steep for what you actually got.

My wife and I enjoyed Valentines Day dinner at Artichoke. We have been many times and are never disappointed. Despite it being a very busy day for the restaurant, the service was outstanding, as was the food (I had beef tenderloin, and my wife had a ravioli dish).

The Crab Cakes, Steak and Lamb were very good. The desert of Creame Brûlée was excellent! BUT the most OUTSTANDING feature was our fantastic waitress who has a delightful personality, warm, gracious, accommodating and a true professional. I believe my receipt identifies her as Chloe. She truly made our dining experience exceptional...

Went here for a lunch date on Valentine’s Day. Food quality was very good. Service started out well, but waitress forgot to bring our drinks in a timely fashion. Quaint interior with interesting artwork and design.

Artichoke Cafe is one of our "go to" places. The menu is excellent, service is great, ambiance is good. The wine list is well built. Bottle prices are not "ouch" unless you select from the reserve list, and the selection of wine by the glass is exceptional.

I had been twice before, what a gem ! I am from out of town, out of state.

Met some new friends for dinner, from ABQ, my treat, and I bragged on the place.

This time the place was OK, but not as great as I remembered ...everything was “ok, but nothing was memorable “

Food is solid but nothing to write home about. Not really worth the cost imho. Ambiance was okay. But the service was good.

Very good as usual. The food was tasty. The pork chop was done to perfection. Nice and quiet. Perfect place to have a conversation. The music was there to listen to but not so loud as to be intrusive. My only complaint is the lack of Domestic wines by the glass. California has wonderful wines as does Washington and New York. May be my problem in that I never developed a taste for European wines. Still, an excellent meal with attentive, not intrusive, service. We certainly will return
