Restaurant is beautiful. Service was good. Don't order the beet salad. Three small pieces of beets on a large plate. Seriously ridiculous.
Absolutely an outstanding restaurant in every way! The food never disappoints and such amazing choices! We love it!!
Not a better dining experience anywhere. Incredible food and atmosphere! Must book a long time in advance! It’s a big favorite
Fantastic experience all the way around! Excellent staff, gorgeous venue, great food, interesting wine list. We hadn’t been here before but will definitely return. I’d highly recommend this restaurant to any of my friends and family! Chef Bill and wife, Anita have created a jewel!
Their wine cellar room is spectacular and couldn’t be a more perfect place for any special event!
This is by far our most favorite special occasion restaurant. It doesn't matter what you order it will be amazing. The best you can get!!!
Superb in every aspect, as always.
Artisanal is a beautiful restaurant inside and out. The indoor space is elegant with a nice bar and the outdoor porch overlooks a forest and stream. We love sitting outside when the weather is nice and they also have heaters for early spring or late fall. They have wonderful craft cocktails and an extensive wine list with a wide price range. The staff are very knowledgable and can help you to choose a wine in your price range. The chef is very creative and chooses interesting sides. We enjoyed the acorn squash bisque first. I had flounder with jerusalem artichokes and small potatoes. It was delicious. My husband enjoyed the duck. Our friends both had the halibut, which was equally delicious. The desserts were wonderful. Chocolate mousse bomb and a pear tart with cheese. I have never been disappointed in the food, ambiance or service. Worth the drive from Blowing Rock!
My husband and I come to Banner Elk week 40 every year. We eat at Artisinal at least twice while we are here that week. The service, hospitality, professionalism and food quality and presentation are second to none! The duck is my favorite dish on the menu - the chef prepared it to perfection this week. The baby bib salad is delicious and a good value. The beet salad is very good - just very little of it. This trip, we were finally able to enjoy the outside dining experience this week - it was absolutely perfect! It was warm outside but with a gentle cool breeze while hearing the creek flowing beside the covered dining balcony. Anita is wonderful there - she took very good care of us finding us a perfect seat outside! THANK YOU for this wonderful, beautiful restaurant!!!
Definitely one of the best restaurants in USA. atmosphere is wonderful. Food is on par with Gary Denko’s in San Fran. We live in West Jefferson. So, about an hour trek. Well worth it. 10/10.
Everything at Artisanal was excellent. We have had some great meals and some great dining experiences, but Artisanal bested them all. Unique and enjoyable from start to finish.
