    Could not justify the hike in the price of the unique formula and the automatic service surcharge of 21%. While the service remain impeccable and the freshness and presentation of the dishes is as perfect as ever, there was a general lack of originality and inventiveness in the choice of ingredients and flavors compared to previous experiences.

    Few (if any) of the finer restaurants we've eaten at can match Artisanal for its ambiance. Fewer still can approach their exquisite cuisine. Of course, even those facets of the experience could be dampened by poor service. Artisanal staff are very well trained and have prior experience at this level of dining. Add the three elements mentioned above, and ours was an experience to remember, just as it was when we were there for our anniversary last May. As General MacArthur said: "We (actually, he used "I") shall return". Even though it's a 240-mile round trip for us, Artisanal is worth every mile of it.

    Our very favorite restaurant in every aspect. Service, ambience, food taste and presentation, bathroom and wine/cocktail selection/quality-absolutely 5 stars in every category. From beginning to end, worth every penny. If I had to make one negative comment, it would be difficulty in getting a reservation.

    Always a great evening from the time you arrive until the time you leave the service is impeccable and the food is wonderful. It’s the gem of the high country and beyond. We are fortunate to have it in Banner Elk.

    The Artisanal continues to set the bar for exceptional dining. Each course was an experience in itself. The new format still provides plenty of opportunity to challenge your tasting exploration. Our service was, as always, professional, knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. We believe the dining at Artisanal to be a rare event that defines gourmet.
