    When I go to the Artisan I always find it delightful. One of the reasons I keep on coming back. The general manager Ryne Wright who was accommodating and superb who makes the atmosphere delightful. Emily service was outstanding and she got my order right before I can even get out of my mouth. The atmosphere is so calm and one of the reasons I keep on coming back and plus the good food. What of my favorite restaurants in the area!! I recommend a restaurant if anybody wants to go for celebration or a relaxing time.

    front booth by the front door was sticky. We've been coming to Artisan for a few years now, never had a sticky table. Grossed us out. Everything else was up to par with what we are use to when dining here. Table cloths were a nice touch, and I'm pretty sure they use to have them? I know when we go to the office Christmas party you have table cloths. Would it deter us from visiting again, no, we love this place!

    My husband and I celebrated our 15th anniversary Artisan staff this evening (second year in a row! We’re making it a habit! 😘). The overall experience was so lovely! I had the tortellini (amazing!) and my husband had the corvina (also incredible). Service was excellent (Allie was our waitress) and of course the wine/drinks were superb. One minor note, we had the soft shell crab appetizer and it was very oily tasting.. Still a 100/100 experience ❤️

    This was our first time back to Artisan since December. The food was good. The filet was cooked perfectly. The halibut had good flavor, but seemed a bit too firm. I did notice the lack of table linens which surprised me. Also, no offer of freshly ground pepper with our salads. Overall, still a good experience.

    Above and beyond our expectations! My husband and I went here for our anniversary dinner and had a phenomenal time. They had a hand written letter on the table wishing us a happy anniversary (very sweet personal touch), complimentary glasses of champagne, and a dessert of our choosing to share! The atmosphere, cocktails, our server Mindy, were all amazing! Highly recommending to all our friends.

    Attention to detail and communication with guests is excellent. The restaurant was fully staffed which is rare these days. A couple of more moderately priced menu items would be appreciated. This would bring Artisan into our regular restaurant rotation rather than a special occasion experience only. Perhaps that is the business model they are seeking. The only negative of the night was out of their control. The table next to us were constant complainers which got old after awhile. However, it was amazing to watch how skillfully the staff, particularly the floor Manager handled them. A+

    Every food item was a notch above what would be expected from a very good restaurant. Eaisly one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at, and I'm 75 and spent 35 years in the wine wholesale business in the south Florida area. The head chef knows how to create a dish that is multidimensional and full across the pallet.

    The concierge staff was extremely attentive and personable. Our waitress was on the spot and knowledgeable of the menu. The food was great and if you’re into cocktails I would recommend the Smokey Bitter. Great experience for Mother’s Day. It’s a little pricey so if you’re looking for a lower budget you might be intimidated. For the four of us (my wife, two kids, and myself) it was about $350. But we went all out. Loved the atmosphere and the attentiveness of the staff. Pretty top notch altogether. We will be back. Oh, and the wagyu steak rare/medium rare is great. The raw oysters were spot on and I would recommend the creme brûlée desert with the two fingers of scotch. We left happy and our bellies were full.

    The food is exquisitely delicious, as always, and the wine selection beyond generous. Service is outstanding. However, the meal price has advanced substantially making our meal a poor value. Nonetheless, the Artisan would be a great choice for a very special occasion.
