It is probably our favorite restaurant within 50 miles. The service and quality of food are always fantastic. Everyone that works there are professional and make it a great dinning experience.

The dining experience was one of the best in our lives. The flavors and texture paring in our food dishes was spectacular and visually it was like eating art. The staff was amazing. The experience was one my wife and I will remember!

We really enjoyed ourselves. The service was good. The food was really great with the exception we felt Amy’s lobster may have been just a bit underdone. Not much but just enough that the texture bothered her. The dessert that had the salted Carmel ice cream in it was awesome!!

Loved the atmosphere. Excellent service and food. The steak tar tar was wonderful along with the scotch whiskey. Had I stopped there it would have been a satisfying experience but with the main course and dessert the whole dinner was quite memorable.

It was our first time coming and I had to move our reservation up due to the weather. The hostess and manager kindly greeted us by name!! It was my boyfriend’s 21st birthday and they provided dessert and a glass of wine on the house. They were so helpful and accommodating!! We will definitely be back.

Date night with my wife. Outstanding. Quiet to talk, very warm and cozy, food and service excellent. Great wine list and food/presentation. Only thing I would change is that we would have tried this restaurant sooner. Liked it so much we bought a gift certificate for some good friends. Did I say outstanding?

My wife and I love Artisan's great drinks and better filets. As one would expect the service is always great and this time was no different as our server was prompt, upbeat and rolled with my dad jokes. I didn't catch his official title but Brad went above and beyond making my wife and I feel comfortable in addition to educating me on three different types of Scotch and their associated regions of origin. The atmosphere is always upscale but not too pretentious with modern jazzy and bluesy electronic music at an appropriate level for such an establishment. 👍

My husband and I dined here for the first time for my 26th birthday. This was the best dining experience we’ve ever had... the food, service, ambience, cleanliness, creativeness, etc. was all absolutely amazing and over the top! I had several dietary restrictions and they were so accommodating and didn’t make me feel like a bother and Brad the manager (super nice) made me the best Moscow Mule, my fav! Everything from the hostess, to the bathroom, to the food (quality, presentation, temp, etc.) was absolute perfection. Brad showed us around to other rooms in the restaurant and even walked us to the door! Our server was SO nice and didn’t come to our table too much like some servers! LOVE this place and can’t wait to come back and sit in the bar/lounge next time and bring friends! Also, if you’re looking for quantity of food then this is not the place for you. This is QUALITY and creative cuisine, not overflowing plate fulls. If you want a full plate then go to a buffet or something. This isn’t the restaurant for you. I personally love quality over quantity and so does my husband so we loved it:)

We loved everything about the evening. Great atmosphere very personable staff. The food was fantastic. The Steak Gnudi was one of the best dishes I've ever had. The steak tips were succulent and juicy, the gnudi was creamy and melted in your mouth, and those mushrooms bursted with flavor. My wife and I love coming here and they seem to outdo themselves every time!

Nice meal. My guest wanted her filet medium well (sorry) but it came out medium rare. Only ate half. Had a show to go to so didn’t mention it - sure they would have fixed it. Would have have liked a bit more blueberries with my duck. Dessert was excellent.

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and it was amazing! The food was so good and our waiter Lee was so friendly. Service was quick and the food was worth every penny. I would also like to say the soap in the bathroom smells absolutely divine. It is a very lovely ambiance and my boyfriend was very pleased.

Our dining experience could not have been more enjoyable anywhere else! It was our first visit but definitely won't be our last! The service was exceptional! The food presentation inspired! Our every need addressed even before we asked. The menu was enticing and should satisfy any palette. We had the filet and it did not disappoint! So delicious and one of the best we've ever had. It paired perfectly with the excellent bottle of wine we ordered from their extensive wine selection! We even lingered for some of their delectable pumpkin cheesecake and crème brulee! A very memorable and delightful 44th Anniversary dinner!

Our experiences at Artisan have always been good, however, I feel that the food is too artistic. I had a steak with way too much flavor in the sauce. I couldn't taste the meat because of the underlying sauce. I like my steaks plain with some catsup, next time that is what I will order, just a piece of meat cooked to medium rare, and a bottle of catsup, perhaps some mushrooms if they aren't over spiced.

Our wait staff is Melissa. She has a fantastic smile and engaging personality. She often stood at a distance waiting for us to pause conversation before approaching the table. We asked for a couple of special serving options and she was gracious to comply. Her suggestions proved perfect for us.

Brad is the manager. He helped us select the perfect wine for our meal. His knowledge and engaging personality helped to make the selection of wine an entertainingly warm moment in the evening.

If you are a rye drinker, I recommend the “Bradhatten.” Made by Melissa and named after Brad.

We decided to start with one of the many fancy cocktails. The custom Manhattan - or Bradhattan - was possibly the best drink I've ever tasted, and the Moscow mule was a winner, too. We shared the potato croquettes, which were so yummy -- crunchy and tasty on the outside, rich and creamy on the inside. The pumpkin soup was so good -- rich, savory, and not sweet. The seasonal prep for the pork chop was super tasty and the the steak was butter-knife tender. We had both the lemon cake and the creme brulee, because, why not?! The lemon cake was a bit dense, but all the flavors were wonderful, and the creme brulee was super rich and creamy with a fun piece of sugar candy as garnish. Erin was great! So much to enjoy. Love it every time.

Prices are in line with fine restaurants, but not over priced. Food is excellent and the menu changes 3 or 4 times a year. The wine list is also excellent and the serving of the wine is better than many in the area. The correct glasses are used and when appropriate the wine is decanted.
Bravo!
