Artisan Bistro is a modern and inviting dining room dressed in rich dark and light woods with elegant European design elements. Accents of black, off-white, cognac, blues and warm grays echo a classic bistro look and feel. Crafted wood wainscoting throughout the room and soft ambient lighting from above highlight the white-washed, wood floors to further enhance the bistro-like setting. New stitched-leather booth seating lines the dramatic floor to ceiling wall of windows overlooking Avery Street and two high-top u-shaped booths frame the space on either end. Additional cluster seating is intimate and close, allowing for easy conversation and lively exchange. Artisan Bistro features fresh, local seasonal dishes that present artisanal cooking in an approachable way.

                                                            The atmosphere is low key and it’s in the Ritz so the lobby and seating areas are lovely. The service was excellent, the food was delicious. We had a graduation to celebrate and our waiter brought a special complementary “congratulations dessert” to the graduate. The price was expensive: $320.00 for 4 people, plus we added a 20% tip. Overall, it was a positive experience. We wondered if the cost was keeping customers away because they only had three tables the entire evening.

                                                            Highly recommend a visit. Keep in mind, at peak dining time, it can be a bit difficult to hear others at your table. Particularly in a large group. But definitely worth the lean in.

                                                            Overall very good. Skirt steak was excellent. Very good service. Not the most comfortable room between the wood chairs and the tiny silverware, but worth another visit.

                                                            It was a lovely dinner. Pricey, but nice. Very nice and convenient location

                                                            I felt like it was over price for the size of the portions you received I hate my whole meal and I was still hungry I had to order a side of truffle fries.

                                                            Our dinner would have been very enjoyable except that we were seated in the back room with 2 other large tables. As is often the case, the large tables became very loud to the point that my husband and I could not even have a conversation. The upsetting part is that there were open tables in the other area (bar) of the restaurant where the noise level was manageable. The waiter was trying his best but was very busy with the large tables. Management might want to be a little more conscientious of the seating. The food was delicious.

                                                            Yummy Bolognese. Was a special on the menu that night and it was very good. Menu itself was rather limited and I was kind of regretting picking it until our waiter told us about the Bolognese. That save the day. I might try it again when going to the theater on the chance that they were just having an off night. The decor also left me a little cold--a bit too contemporary for my taste. Reminded me of an old style diner rather than a Ritz restaurant.

                                                            Convenient to the theaters and public parking. Menu was more limited than the website indicated, and descriptions were not clear/accurate re ingredients. I had the escarole Caesar, added grilled and marinated chicken breast (very good). Dressing was a little bland. The addition of peanuts to the salad was a surprise but tasty. They do ask about allergies, but I would not have thought to mention a peanut allergy if I had one, because who expects peanuts in a Caesar salad? The portions for the other dishes (pasta) seemed small. The service settings were incomplete (missing pieces of utensils in the napkin); the table was sticky. Overall could use a thorough sprucing up in a few areas.

                                                            We arrived at a very quiet time on a Tuesday evening. The waiter was very prompt and explained the specials and our questions on the menu very well. We were served quickly and the food was excellent. We went there before going to the theatre so I would recommend this because it is close and a comfortable place to eat and drink.

                                                            Are used to love this location pre-Covid. I don’t know what happened. Limited menu. Food isn’t the same. Definitely a few notches down. The service is still great, but the food was less than desirable

                                                            A bit noisier than we like due to a party in a closed off section of the restaurant. Service was great and the food very good making fo an enjoyable meal with friends.

                                                            Great place to eat before a performance at the ballet or a sunny stroll in the Commons nearby! I’ve been twice for brunch and have experienced stellar service and warm, quiet ambiance on both occasions. Servers Noelle, and Sandra as well as host Melissa were kind, understanding, and personable. I found them respectful and easy to start great conversations with! Food is tasty and servings are filling! All around a great experience! :)

                                                            Menu is very limited and quality was only fair. Service was very good, wish the meal was better.

                                                            This restaurant was a great place for a night out on the town! It had a wonderful atmosphere and staff were very kind and helpful. They also had a broad drink selection (including some fine wines) and were able to accommodate our dairy and gluten dietary restrictions with relative ease (which was very much appreciated). It wasn't the most excellent food I have ever tasted, but it was still delicious and together with the atmosphere made it a wonderful place for a romantic dress-up night on the town. Would definitely recommend. :)

                                                            We went there for dinner after the Pretty Woman show at Opera House. The three of us enjoyed our dinner.

                                                            Small and intimate restaurant close to the theaters and the common. Everyone was very accommodating from the doorman to the manager. The Ritz restaurant "The Artisan" is beautiful and a really nice treat for a nice night out. I just wish we could have stayed longer for dessert and coffee but we had to get to the theater.

                                                            Context: rainy Christmas Day breakfast in a hotel dining room. Nothing special - exactly what you'd order from the room service menu - an unimaginative breakfast selection of waffles, berries and yogurt, eggs and potatoes. Everything tasted delicious but would be considered overpriced anywhere else in town. There was something missing in the ambience. A bit of the Ritz Carlton has rubbed off in the cloth napkins and stylized flatware, but otherwise it felt like a midwestern Courtyard by Marriot dining room. None of the warmth or elegance found in the rest of the hotel. Our waitress was kind but slow (bless her for taking the holiday shift). We booked a table for 5 and were crammed with our coats and 3 full grown teenagers into a 4 person booth with an extra chair. When we asked about the table for six we were told it was reserved. It sat empty for the duration. Bottom line - A satisfying meal before departing to the airport, but not a particularly memorable experience.
