Perfect date night spot! Tapas are amazing, we had the arancini, crab wonton nachos, pulled pork tamales, and cheesesteak egg rolls. Drinks were also good, a little on the pricier side for the cocktails. The ambiance is great, loved admiring the metalworks in the downstairs room. The service was attentive. Would definitely return!

Perfect place for a date night. Food and cocktails were great, and the price was right. There’s a parking lot right in front of the bistro, only $3 per hour, which is very convenient because it’s very hard to find an available parking spot in Manayunk.

We absolutely love Artesano as our weekend coffee spot. Their coffee is fantastic (they use Reanimator). It is the most beautiful location, filled with gorgeous plants, and beautiful artwork. This was our first time going to the “bistro” for happy hour and appetizers. I got a cocktail the “pear Paloma” it was ok - but cost $14. Which is just a tad excessive. My husband had a local IPA, which was great and our Server was excellent and knowledgeable. We are the short rib flatbread, and the crab nachos. The flatbread was small, but delicious, and the nacho were something different. My only negative was the over priced cocktail. We will absolutely be back - this is such a great place for both coffee, and happy hour! Can’t wait to try more of the food menu at the bistro.

Really nice if you’re looking for small plates. The food was quite good. The service was friendly and attentive. We sat outside which is going to be very popular as it gets warmer. The inside looks nice, but I can’t really speak to the noise levels. We’ll definitely be back.

Wonderful drinks, very beautiful garden. Noise level was minimal even though the location is near such a busy street. Outside dining felt very private. I even saw a couple dogs in the garden, which is great for pet owners who want to stop in after a walk!

This is a hidden gem of Philadelphia, almost too good to boast about because I want to keep it my own. Highly recommend for a date, drinks with friends, or a switch-up from a typical outing. The food was delicious, as were the drinks, and the ambiance is truly unique.

This lovely cafe is a unique spot right here in Manayunk. The food and service are excellent—but the best part is the ambience! A friendly staff, beautiful iron works sculptures, and great music playing gives this neighborhood spot an exotic feel. We plan to go back again and again!

First time at Artesano Bistro, and it did not disappoint. The setting is lovely....plants, funky decor, and a "live" wall contribute to the eclectic ambience. Service was excellent, and the food (small plates) and cocktails were delectable. Would highly recommend Artesano as a date night stop.

I’m going to make this a regular Friday thing, the food is delicious, it’s Tapas style- the short rib flatbread is amazing. And the current cherry-bourbon drink is amazing. Great social distancing, keep this place open I love it!

The outdoor space is so lovely with enough heaters that even with it being about 45 degrees, you are still very comfortable. The patio is also very nicely spaced out so you are comfortable not being too close to other dining couples.

While I'm still not comfortable eating inside, the tables inside are also spaced out very nicely that I was thinking about it before realizing that it is warm enough outside anyway.

The food is tapas style, and so delicious! You will want to come back to try out the whole menu. They have a fantastic bartender as well, as my drink was a nice size and very delicious.

I highly recommend making a reservation as this place is getting to be popular, and once more people realize that it is a comfortable temperature on their outside patio it will be hard to get a table in this gorgeous setting.
