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!!

My wife and I went for New Years Eve and had a wonderful time. We live over an hour away and everything with the restaurant was perfect. Food was great, lamb and scallops, and the appetizers hit the spot. We will definitely be back.

The food was superb! From the ciabatta rolls with housemade European cultured butter and Hawaiian sea salt, through the Faroe Island salmon with sweet potato puree and a to-die-for caramel sauce, to the creme brulee with crunchy macaron kisses and caramel pearls, everything was cooked perfectly, with delicious, inventive tastes. Just as impressive was the service, which elevated the meal into an experience. We had a lovely evening and will definitely return.

Another wonderful experience! The staff is always so friendly and welcoming. I had a wonderful Smoked Manhattan that reminded me of drinking a cozy campfire. The Sweet Potato soup was creamy and delicious. It seemed that the chefs had a special entree tonight which was a heavenly Chicken Pot Pie. This could easily become part of the standard menu in my opinion. A wonderful light flaky crust with juicy chicken and soft succulent veggies and a light creamy broth. We finished the night with the Pumpkin Tart that was so light and fluffy which was contrasted perfectly by the crunchy tarts crust and finished with the sweet Dulce de Leche that was hidden at the bottom. Wonderful night!

Superb service and the food along with the presentation was perfect. Our experience was beyond expectations and made the evening a memorable experience. The only minor negative was the Friday night crowd by the bar area did get a little noisy at times. It wasn't to the point of being annoying, just noticable while carrying on a conversation. We will definitely be coming back.

One of my family's favorite restaurants. The staff and management is simply put, outstanding. The food is consistent and their wine list is extensive and reasonably priced. Wines such as the Tiedemann Adler's Blend, Glenwood Cellars Cabernet and others are outstanding selections. The manager is well educated on wines and can be very helpful in making a selection. Cheers

We could not have asked for better. The food was incredible and the service was impeccable. Everything we had for dinner was better than expected and the foie gras literally melted in your mouth. A huge thank you to Brad for recommending we try the crème brûlée, as we've never had one so good. Also, thank you so much to Mandy who's service only made our night more enjoyable. We will most definitely be back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and experience at Artisan and would make it a 'go to' restaurant if we lived nearby. Unfortunately we don't, but it is on our list when we are near Elkhart.

Why did we enjoy it so much? First, the food was excellent. We were told that the menu changes about every 4 to 6 weeks depending on what foods are available. The meals were prepared to perfection, starting with the breads and ending with the dessert. The wine and cocktail list were superb... and the owner was extremely helpful in selecting a wine to go with our meal.

The ambiance was relaxed but classy... and the music was an interesting mix of what I think of as modern rock. I knew some of the artists but others I didn't... but their sound was nice.

The most surprising, and exceptional part of the evening, was the service. It was impeccable and the best we've ever experienced at this price point. As soon as we entered the restaurant, the hostess wanted to know if we were there for a special occasion so that the staff could help make it special. That was followed up by our waitress who was fabulous. She was not only knowledgeable about everything on the menu, but best of all, always attentive to our needs. If we were conversing, she would stop just outside the curve of our booth and wait until we finished talking about and then acknowledged her before stepping forward and asking us whatever question she had.

Likewise, one of the owners came over when he found out it was our first time at the restaurant and welcomed us and wanted to make sure that we knew that the staff was ready to do whatever they could to make this a wonderful experience.

Finally, as we departed the restaurant, the owner came outside and asked if we had a good experience. We both appreciated that very much. Overall, the best way to describe the evening is to say that it was all about US! They really made us feel special. If you have a chance GO!

I'm no connoisseur but I'd have to say the food was as expected and quite good. Even if the food was bad I'd still give them high marks for their attempt and friendliness. My only super critical suggestion Involves a dill pickle, How come nobody seems to know about or offers Old fashioned sweet pickles? ;-} Looking forward to try some of the occasional tasting parties they say they lineup.

First time at Artisan and I can say that I got completely surprised with everything there. From the reception to the bill. It was a special occasion for me and the staff did not measure efforts in order to make it beyond perfection. I will definitely come back in the near future and recommend Artisan to everyone who wants an outstanding dinner experience.

This amazing restaurant has great food, lovely decor and a friendly staff. The real star here though is the almost magical presentation of the food. They delighted us from the moment we sat down with sparkly menus, fun drinks, funny banter about the menu choices and great energy when presenting the food. It was just a fun, deliciously great evening and we can't wait to return! I would say expensive and worth every penny.
