We just went for to Artisan for the first time tonight, for our ten year anniversary. This could not have been a better experience. Everyone was so sweet and kind, they truly went above and beyond to make sure our night was memorable. The food was beyond excellent and worth every dollar. I would definitely recommend going here, whether it be for a special occasion or just because.

Valentines Day dinner. Tables close to door definitely feel the cold air, but not sure what could be done different.
Was around 40 min between soup and entree served. 20 min would have been reasonable.
We will definitely be back to try other menu items. The food was excellent.

It was an impressionable experience! The service makes you feel as if you're the only table there and the food is essentially edible art. Can't wait for our next visit!

a little to much salt in the food and small portions. I had TWO small carrots as my vegetable and my husband had TWO broccoli florets.

This is the first time we have been at Artisian and it was a very nice experience. The manager took a personal interest, the wait staff was attentive and the food was excellent. My filet was perfect... I did need the steak knife! My wife's scallops were very good and the accoutrements were outstanding. The celeriac soup and my wife's artisian salad with pear vinaigrette were excellent. The wine recommendations were terrific as well. As first timers we were offered a free dessert which was literally over the top. The timing of service was nicely paced and we did not feel rushed as well. All in all our evening was interesting fun and delicious.

I visited with my wife on her birthday. This was our first visit. The food was amazing, delicious, and artfully presented. One of the owners, Brad, met us with kind introductions at the door. Our server, Lee, was friendly, courteous, and very informative. He checked on us at exactly the right frequency....good balance of privacy and attentiveness. We were extremely impressed at such a find right here in li'l ol Elkhart! We enjoyed the elk, grits and shrimp, and the Wagyu beef burger. Pretty pricey, but there's nothing else in Elkhart in this league - an amazing find. We will definitely be back.

Not surprised that the Artisan and Café Navarre are our two go to restaurants. The Artisan has excellent menu choices, always extremely pleasant staff, the on site manager/host is the best in the business. The food was prepared perfectly and the atmosphere was great. Thanks for another perfect evening.

My wife and I dine at Artisan frequently and they always treat us amazing. They make you feel like you are the only person in the room. They go over the top to meet your needs. If you have a special occasion this is the place to celebrate it. You won't be disappointed. The food is amazing and you won't find a better place to entertain clients, have a romantic meal, or just relax after a long day /week.

Our first visit to Artisan was delightful- from the backlit menus to the dancing pomegranate seeds in my cocktail to the creative food preparation and presentation. The wait staff was attentive without being obtrusive. We have told many people about this gem of a restaurant. We will definitely be back! Thank you, Artisan, for a lovely birthday dinner.

My birthday was made so special. The food was delicious and memorable. My only criticism is that the hostess assumed that my guest was “my husband who was parking the car.” I’ve been divorced for 23 yrs and my “husband” has been married & divorced 3 times! Women can dine alone or with other women.

Love this place! The food is absolutely amazing and definitely will not disappoint. You will find the staff very attentive, helpful & personable. Brad the manager will absolutely take care of you, he has a very personable touch and does an incredible job at making you feel at home. The menu keeps changing with seasonal features and some rare finds, tonight I had Wild Boar which was way better than I would have expected, I hope to try the Elk chops next time. Cheers to fine local dining!

First visit for us, staff was attentive, food quality was excellent, entree’s appeared to take a bit too long coming from kitchen but the food was worth the wait. Cocktails well prepared and desserts were tremendous. We have eaten in Chicago many times at similar type restaurants and we preferred the Artisan experience. One observation , we arrived for an early dinner and Resturant was fairly empty but it did bother us in a fairly empty resturant they sat the next guests at a small table right on top of us, I wonder why fine restaurants seem to put their most inexperienced staff as the host. Overall great experience!!
