Unfortunately the hostess did not inform our server that our table was his! I had to get up and track her down when we had not been waited on in 15 minutes. Not a good start to the evening. Our server then did a good job in taking care of our table. The food was very good, specials were a bit pricey. We did expect a few more Mediterranean dishes since it was noted for Italian/Mediterranean food. A nice place for a special occasion.

We have been here several other times.in the past we ordered off of early bird.this time too late we brought other family members after bragging about it. very disappointed couldn’t believe salad not included with our Italian entree waitress never brought us bread till we finally asked after sitting there for a long time The servings were nothing to brag about. Overall very disappointing and somewhat embarrassing

Always a wonderful experience at Artisan's.
The dinner specials never disappoint, and anything braised is to die for!
Great craft beer list, wonderful staff, and killer food (ask for the hop pickles!)
We've had anniversaries, family dinners, parties, etc. with Artisan's and are always happy with our choice.

Great food. Wife says best Italian food she has ever had. Nice light delicious sauces and meats. Great service by Danielle our server. Wonderful beer selection too if you want beer instead of wine.

The hostess was very welcoming and friendly and so was the whole staff. The bartender made a very good sangria which I really enjoyed. The server was also very nice and it was my daughter's birthday so it was a very special day she brought out a candle in the ice cream that my daughter ordered. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be going there again.

As soon as we entered the Artisan Restaurant and Brewery we knew we were in for a wonderful experience. This restaurant was both warm and inviting. It was reminiscent of an Italian winery where I spent many hours while a student in Italy. Kathy, our server was AMAZING. Her outgoing personality combined with her excellent customer service added to this already wonderful experience. Besides the food, there was a
good selection of craft beer and an extensive wine list. Also offered was their Sunday Night Pasta Special. The menu is varied and delicious. There is also a party room that would be perfect for an intimate party! Give it a try; I promise that you won't be disappointed!

We've been to Artisans last 3 Julys while visiting the Jersey shore. First 2 years we were happy, but this past year, a little disappointed. Inside is very nice, but entrees are expensive, and that's fine. But when I'm paying $23 , I don't expect the spaghetti to sit under a heat lamp to the point where it tastes like chef boyardee. Those of us who ordered pasta had similar complaints, but my son ordered a personal pizza which came out last, and appeared to be straight from the oven. He was happy. Don't think we'll be making it 4 years in a row after this experience.

We arrived early to our reservation and table was already reserved. The waitress Elisa was very friendly, and attentive to us. No issues at all with anything except my salad entree. I had the Arugula Salad which I'd had the last time and it tasted extremely salty. I'm not sure if it was the Grana Padano cheese or too much salt added to the dressing.
