    Artisinal is one of our favorite restaurants and we always look forward to our visits. The pre fixe menu was varied so there were many choices for all tastes. The service was excellent. The scones with pepper jelly and the yeast rolls were exceptional. It can be tricky getting a reservation but we highly recommend it.

    What can I say, the service was exemplary. Could not have been better. A huge staff scurrying around to anticipate your every need. The charming old barn wood interior is lovely with high vaulted ceilings, rustic but elegant. Not noisy, which is a big plus in my book. That said, it is very expensive, $105 per person plus an automatic 21% gratuity. Tremendously expansive wine list but few bottles accessible to us mere mortals (several choices at $6500 or more if you have deeper pockets than me). We knew about the pre-fix 3-course menu going in. An anniversary celebration so we were willing to splurge. I was slightly disappointed to find not a single golden beet in the golden beet & strawberry salad. It was delicious but not as advertised. For that price they should have scoured the ends of the earth to find golden beets, or at least updated the menu. My husband loved the scallops which were perfectly prepared. However, I was not impressed with the short rib. It had a nice sear on one side and a bernaise sauce to cover up what was a very fatty piece of meat that wasn’t particularly tender. I would have chosen the tenderloin, but that was another $25 up-charge. Was it worth $359 for our anniversary dinner? Maybe it would have been if we were independently wealthy or dining on OPM (other people’s money). Guess we won’t go back.

    Artisanal is truly a gastronomic experience filling all the blanks I expect from a restaurant like this. From parking upon arrival to the reception and guide to your table is flawless. Our server Amelia a true professional with amole knowledge of my wine and food selection. And of course the actual dining experience a feast for the eyes and palate. The most outstanding part is the value for the whole evening enjoyment is remarkable If in Banner Elk don’t miss it Jim Perez

    Anniversary dinner. Table was outside on the patio. Very attentive staff, excellent food and drinks. The Tequila Old Fashioned rates as one of the best craft cocktail’s I’ve had. The seared scallops and short rib were delicious, and the veggies were top quality. Portion sizes were perfect. Definitely get dressed up - high class in the high country!

    Friendly staff, nice ambiance but terrible food except for the bread and frites. Felt rushed for next reservations. Disappointed to pay as much as we did for the quality of the food. Prior experience about a year ago was much better.
