We were visiting Elkhart, Indiana and was pleasantly surprised to find such a quality restaurant in the downtown area. The ambiance and service was amazing as well as the food. My wife also had a delicious Old Fashion done their way. The General Manager took us in a tour of this historic building and it was fabulous. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
A fantastic time, as always. Brad and our server Joe, as well as the rest of the staff make a night out at Artisan a great way to escape the ordinary. Literally one of the best restaurants I've enjoyed, and I've been to some amazing places. Thanks, and kudos!
Had a wonderful 5th anniversary celebration at Artisan. Cocktail menu was world-class. Whitefish Salad on potato pancake was ingenious. Service was friendly, attentive and personally welcoming. Main dishes of scallops and rack of lamb were executed perfectly.
Really the only thing lacking at artisan is the ambiance. They’ve done the best with the space there is, but it’s a narrow space with no real windows. If they were to move to be on the st Joe river it’d be a world class experience all around. But that’s a minor nitpick.
I highly recommend for your next special occasion. And we’ll be back.
We were greeted by the hostess say Happy Anniversary. Which we were celebrating our anniversary. The manager came over to offer a complimentary bubbly drink. Also gave us an anniversary card. They went out of their way to make sure we had an amazing anniversary dinner on top of that was complimentary dessert which we declined. Thank you so much. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
Brad and Melissa were great! We celebrated my birthday and received a nice card from the staff. Little things like that make the experience review worthy. Well done!
My wife and I went out to Artisan for our anniversary and had a wonderful experience. Our table felt private. The lighting was sufficient with a warm ambiance. The noise level was moderate to low. The host presented us with a hand written anniversary card and complementary desert. Service was on point. Hanger steak, rack of lamb, and desert were all excellent. Not cheap. Great value.
The service was outstanding. The food phenomenal. The owner was present and very gracious.
We had broken up our trip home from the UP of Michigan with a stop in Elkhart. This was a trip where great food was a major goal of every stop. Pre-trip planning had identified the Artisan as a potential source of a wonderful eating experience. We were not disappointed. The meal at the Artisan was simply outstanding. From the welcome when we were seated until we finished the incredible desert was pure pleasure. Between the Artisan and the Wellfield Botanical Gardens we now have a reason to visit Elkhart often. We will return.
GM Brad was outstanding and very attentive! Chris was training and did a fabulous job, he will be a great asset to Artisan. It was a great night celebrating my wife’s new job.
The food was exquisite, the ambiance delightful, the service excellent.
Was just great again! my wife's birthday for just the two of us and it was spectacular. Fois Gras--Cocktails--and we were barely able to complete our meals we were so full--her gnocchi was fantastic for sure blended with the tenderloin and I had the chicken confit which was the best ever--desserts for her birthday ended the meal great. as usual, the service was spectacular and made it a great night. Thanks guys
We absolutely loved our dining experience for our 5th anniversary! It was a memorable night, from the service, to the food, to the extra little surprises. We will definitely be back!
We truly enjoyed our first visit. Everything was better than anticipated. We will return.
My second time there and enjoyed both visits and will be back. You sure know how to pamper a lady!!
The best food I have ever had from start to finish. I highly recommend the filet mignon which had a great red wine sauce (and I normally hate wine), yellow potatoes and roasted carrots. We shared the desserts which were awesome. The Creme Brûlée plus the deconstructed S’more. The non-alcoholic beer was on point. I will definitely be back for the wonderful food. But the service was top notch. The team should be very proud of the entire staff. More restaurants should be like this.
This was one of the best meals I’ve had. From the moment we walked in, Brad - the manager - made you feel as if you were coming to dine at his home. From the service provided by Joe and Brad, to our excellent food and the ambiance, this was the perfect way to celebrate our anniversary.
The food and drinks were amazing. We started with the beets and the shrimp cocktail for appetizers (complimented by a smoky Manhattan and a glass of wine). We then moved on to the filet and steak gnudi for our entrees. The filet was cooked and seasoned to perfection - quite possibly the best steak I’ve ever eaten. For dessert, we had the salted caramel creme brûlée and pistachio/orange ice cream (I don’t recall the exact name). The creme brûlée was decadent and the pistachio dessert was refreshing. I highly recommend and will return.
Our fifth anniversary dinner was made very special by the team at Artisan. We can’t thank them enough for their hospitality and amazing food. We can’t wait to share our new find with our close friends. Please also note: You’d be making a mistake if you left without enjoying the Caramel Creme Brûlée.
Phenomenal dining experience at Artisan! Carissa was friendly, attentive and made fantastic recommendations. I had the sweet corn soup as an appetizer and it was delicious. The Venison served medium rare was so tender and delicate. For dessert I had the tres leches, it was the best dessert I had in quite some time.
I travel for business all over the U.S. and Canada weekly and this was by far the best dining experience I had in many years. The server and the owner made me feel at home.
I will definitely go back!
Thank you Artisan for this fabulous experience.
Food was perfect!
My husband and I dined at Artisan for our wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed! Every single person went out of their way to ensure we had a fantastic dining experience. Everyone was so personable and easy to talk to. The food was phenomenal! From bread bowl, to two amazing entrees, to a creme brule you will never forget, we enjoyed every bit of this luxurious treatment on our anniversary and would recommend to anyone wanting a fine dining experience. Thank you!
This restaurant is amazing. The menu and wine list has something for everyone. The chef is incredible as well as the staff and ambiance of this restaurant is somewhere you can relax and actually dine! They want you to take your time, relax and enjoy every moment. I strongly suggest you experience this wonderful restaurant and all they have to offer. You will leave feeling you have an extended family.
Absolutely lovely place for a romantic dinner! My husband and I visited Artisan to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it was perfect. The staff was so friendly and welcoming, the atmosphere was intimate with dim lighting and candles, and the food was spectacular. This was our first time, and we will definitely be going back. Highly recommended!
THE best fine dining experience in Elkhart for sure. Brad, the manager, is so on top of everything that goes on in this place. His team is second to none. The menu isn't pretentious and neither are the people. We're always made to feel like family. Some of the best fish dishes I've had anywhere. I recommend Artisan to anyone looking for a casual experience or a nice night out. They can make both happen.
Unusual and delicious preparations constantly. Halibut in a light broth with spring veggies. Oysters and a shrimp cocktail. Fresh butter with Himalayenne salt. Perfect.
We live in Austin, TX, but come to Elkhart for RV maintenance. We've eaten here four or five times over the last four years and each dinner has been creative and exceptional. Wait staff knows the food and are very efficient. The chef is creative in both preparation and presentation. We've never had a bad meal here regardless of whether we order seafood, meat, dessert or drinks. Exceptional restaurant.
Amazing Staff, Amazing Food, Great Atmosphere - Highly recommend!!
Great service by our waitress Melissa and the smoked manhattans created by Brad were amazing! Fantastic overall experience. We will be back again.
Wonderful food, great service!
Both waiter and manager were very attentive and offered plenty of information about the restaurant and their menu items. We will certainly be back.
Excellent food & service (as usual)!
Very attentive service. Wonderful food. Manager and server made wonderful recommendations and explained thoroughly. Will definitely be back.
They made our anniversary extra special
A truly phenomenal dining experience. Staff was incredibly hospitable and knowledgeable. Atmosphere was wonderful. The steak tartare, venison, and caramel creme brûlée were standouts. Will definitely be back.
I had high expectations for this restaurant, and the food preparation and service was absolutely amazing. The cocktail menu had excellent options and the ones I tried were great. They served fresh bread, and we each got an appetizer (pork belly & whitefish salad) and an entree (steak gnudi and scallops). My husband got a dessert and I got an espresso martini to finish. Although we felt like we ordered a decent amount of food, the portion sizes were smaller than expected. The food was amazing, but the only reason we would choose LaSalle Grille over this restaurant is that we left feeling a little hungry after finishing everything we ordered.
I just love the staff there. They are welcoming and friendly. They all help each other with everything. It is great to see that kind of teamwork!
I was looking for a nice place to take my wife for our 35th anniversary. I found the Artisan on a list of must do places to dine. We didn't know it was Jazz Fest weekend until just before we arrived so they were very busy. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. My wife had the Pork chop, I had the Hanger steak and our daughter the Artic Char. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and plan to return soon.
We had a group of 7 on Jazz Festival night -probably Artisan’s busiest weekend of the year! We were warmly welcomed, our favorite drinks remembered, table service by Erin exemplary, and the food and wine outstanding. The manager, Brad was incredibly busy but took the time to smoke a Manhattan for us which everyone enjoyed. We were never rushed. The evening was Perfect!!
One of the best restaurants around. Always great food, drinks, and service. We’ve been here 4 or 5 times and it never disappoints.
My wife have been to Artisan many times and it has always been pleasant experience with great fresh food and great service. Recently, we went to Artisan to celebrate our anniversary. We were presented with a complimentary champagne toast to get the evening off to a great start! It just got better from there. The wine list is amazing with selections from all over the world. Brad helped us pick a great bottle to enjoy with our meal. The food was cooked and presented with perfection as it always is.
It is such a pleasure that Elkhart has this truly fine dining restaraunt!
We were welcomed on arrival by the owner. Our waiter and other personnel were very friendly, thoughtful, and efficient. The menu, on iPad, was very appealing—so many great items that it was difficult to choose. Everything we ordered, including two very well-crafted cocktails, was beautifully presented and timely. It was a delightful evening with warm and attentive service. We’ll be back.
