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.
I really hope ownership doesn't change ! Really loved it there !
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.
