My daughter and I arrived at the restaurant to discover it had closed down. No one notified us so we spent the next hour trying to find a brunch spot that we didn't have to wait a few hours to get into. Very disappointing that they didn't think enough of their customers to make a few phone calls to notify us of the closing but I guess that may explain why they are out of business!

Sad to say that Artisan House is closed. It was one of my favorite restaurants.

Restaurant closed without any notice whatsoever. What's the point in making a reservation at a restaurant when and it doesn't open.

The ambiance is cool and they have patio seating options which is great for LA weather. Good brunch options - I got the chicken & waffles which was better than most chicken & waffles I order. I recommend getting a bloody mary. They also have bottomless mimosas for $15.

In spite of having booked an 8:30PM reservation through opentable, the restaurant actually stopped seating people at 8:00 PM. It seems Artisan House is permanently off my list of restaurants, although I enjoyed it the only other time I had been there.

The place was Cosy. What I liked most though is their care with the presentation of their food. I adored the pancakes they were scrumptious. However, I do have to note that they do need to go down with the size of the nuts used in their pancake dish, because each nut is quite big & ruins the composure of the dish in my opinion. Other than that point, I liked everything else . & I will end this by saying that their staff was friendly & genuine.

Honestly, this dining experience fell way short of my expectations. My girlfriend ordered the ahi tuna stack with the crispy rice buns. The ahi and everything inside was awesome, the rice patties not so much. They were extremely hard to bite into and even more difficult to chew. It was decent, as my girlfriend said "it was nothing I would go back for or crave". My sandwich was another story. I got the chicken sandwich. I love chicken sandwiches and this one sounded amazing until it arrived. The more I got into I kept noticing something that I could not chew, maybe it was the fried jalapenos, I wasn't sure. As I progressed through it I noticed what I could not chew in every bite was the piece of chicken. This piece of chicken must of been hours old and microwaved. It was the worst chicken sandwich I have ever had, hands down. Shame on me for not discovering the chicken was bad earlier. On top of that, our service was sub-par. Not worth the money and will not be back.

The food was tasteless honestly. Too pricey for tasteless food! And the lobster mac and cheese was just bolognese pasta with a ton of parmesan on top...

As I said on Yelp, I was lied to 3 times by them. They change when they closing constantly. (This is a recollection of my last incident (Previous incidents were very similar). I called ahead around 630pm. Victor said the kitchen, under new management and new ownership, was open until 9pm. I arrived 820, my date was arriving at 840. Just a quick bite and then a drink. Easy right? I sat at the bar and was told by the bartender that the kitchen was closed. (keep in mind this is 3rd time in weeks they have done this to me. But good food, so I raised my tolerance) My date is on her way and Victor, the gentlemen I spoke with at 630pm, walks behind me. I tell the bartender, Victor told me 9pm. Victor raises his hands, "That's me!" The bartender laughs and then laughs at me. Victor is oddly proud of his deception and the bartender encouraged it. It was so bizarre and extremely disrespectful. I used to come here often, tipping extremely generously but these 2 guys were so childish and frankly, just adult bullies. Anyways, its a good restaurant but go early because they get wicked DIVA when they are getting close to close. Victor and the bartender with the slick hair are quite rude, avoid them at all costs.

Service was good - attentive and professional - but, unfortunately, the menu was limited and very uninteresting.

Hit Artisan House for Staples pre-concert dinner. Food was delicious and there were many dishes I am ready to try on my next visit. Located right next door to the famous Coles French Dip!

Nice, cozy, quiet, great food, and the service was exceptional! If you're going to make an impression and have a great time on a first date this is the place!

When we got here at 7:45pm, the restaurant was not packed by any means. The waitress was really nice however she was not the most attentive (especially considering we were one of five tables, with a few servers around).

The food was delish, maybe we just did our research and picked the most popular... Pork Buns, Lobster Mac and Cheese and Italian chop salad. And to top of the night Nutella Beignets. I also had the Jack Daniels Mule, and that went down waaaay to easy. Based off food/drinks alone, this place has it's stuff together. Oh one thing with the lobster mac and cheese, they do not mix the lobster in the mac and cheese. They do make you work for it, meaning they give you two tails (and no utensils, or atleast they did not give us any) and have you scape your lobster out yourself... so not the most awesome.

Also as the night got later, the place did not get too crazy packed so imagine my surprise when the hostess seats a couple right next to us. Now I know i sound elitist right now but I don't mean it like that... there was enough seating to put this couple not so close to us considering the table they put them at was barely enough room for our server to get by. SO to say we became a part of their convo is absolutely the truth... and I'm sorry I don't want to hear tips on staying hydrated when "rolling", when I'm at a romantic dinner with my husband...

What a surprise! This was by far the biggest surprise of downtown la in my book. Happy hour is excellent, top dishes were the sopas and the carne Asada fries.

I definitely recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a great happy hour.

The restaurant is close to us and convenient for any meal at any time in a nice atmosphere
and pleasant service. Am planning an October birthday party for about 18 people.

Food was good but the service was poor. The waitress forgot what we ordered and everything was quite slow...

The food was quite tasty, but the service was truly exceptional. My friend and I both have dietary restrictions and our server was more than happy to accommodate us. When it turned out the kitchen wasn't able to modify my companion's meal as he requested, she did so herself. Really above-and-beyond. The location is also quite spacious and nicely decorated.
