I love this restaurant. Our first time there in February was fir my birthday, nice and quiet which make the atmosphere relaxing. This particular visit, a drunk party of 8 made enough noise to fill a football stadium; they belonged in a bar NOT a high class restaurant. Really almost ruined our nice dinner and the staff apologized many times because of them but this restaurant still deserves 5 stars! [If you want to be drunken loud mouths go somewhere else so I can enjoy my $100 dinner in peace and quiet!]

Our first experience was worth mentioning. The Maitre d' showed us the entire space, from the kitchen to the lofted private banquette room. Joe, our server, was most helpful in the drink department. Drinks paired, food served, the meal was AMAZING! Go have fun!!!

The room was much too noise, luckily I was in a booth by the front door and it softened the noise level but it was a little too much noise for me.

A wonderful restaurant with excellent food, prepared and served perfectly. The food is interesting and different without being unapproachable.
Our server, Melissa, is always attentive and professional and pays attention to our needs. It is also nice to have the other wait staff and manager Brad stop by to check on us and say hello.
The decor is upscale and the ambience warm. Nothing nicer in Elkhart.

Every time we’ve gone things are excellent. This was our second time in 4 weeks and it was for a birthday. When making the reservation it was mentioned and I also requested Emily as our server again (she’s excellent and we really enjoy the service she provides). Food was excellent, service was exceptional, and Brad was tremendous as always. We will continue coming back and the rotating menu is a great way to try new things each time. Also, always order the creme brûlée, always.

The Artesan is a truly a four star + restaurant. The manager, Bow Tie Brad is amazing and makes the best manhattans! He greets all the customers somewhere throughout the meal. Our wait person, Clarrisa was truly attentive and met our dining needs. She was competent, well versed in the food on the menu and was able to meet our needs.

Dining at the Artesan is an experience of amazing food, suberb service and a perfected ambience.

While the Artisan meals are not inexpensive, the value is excellent. Food is prepared perfectly. The boar is so tender. Wonderful service. Enormous wine selection. Deserts can be shared. The Creme Brulee is our first choice.

We had a very nice experience on our first visit to Artisan. The food was all well prepared. The wild boar and pierogis were done perfectly. My daughter enjoyed the filet which was prepared to a perfect medium rare. My husband really enjoyed the duck. The service was excellent. We will definitely consider returning the next time we are in the area.

This is our second visit to Artisan and we drive down from Kalamazoo, Michigan. You might think driving an hour each way for dinner is hard to justify, but Artisan makes it easy. The managing partner, Brad, does an amazing job and this results in excellent service and a fantastic customer experience. Big thanks to Emily and Melissa for your amazing service during our meals.

The food has been a perfect 10 so far. We’ve had soups, salads, filets, boar, risotto, and deserts. All of them have been creative and delicious. The executive chef here is super talented and it’s fun that they mix up the menu every 30-40 days.

Highly recommended. We’ll be back soon. 😀

If you are in Elkhart and looking for a fine dining experience. This is your chance. And choosing other wise will not only do yourself injustice. But honestly the world around you will sigh in sadness. You walk in and are met with an atmosphere that is calming and pleasant. Then you instantly receive the most personable service you could imagine. They literally make you feel like the only people in there. The crab cakes (my favorite appetizer but the salmon dip is unbelievable if it happens to be available)are the foundation dreams are made of. And when you move to the entree you wonder how it’s possible for this experience to get better. And then boom. You have just moved up a level. By then bow tie Brad (one of the finest restraint tiers you will ever meet) has already double check several times to make sure your experience is much more than just simple dining. The entire staff is perfection. If you are looking for a phenomenal date night, take your better half here. And I can’t reiterate this enough. I can drive to FortWayne or Southbend/Mishawaka in roughly the same amount of time so I have many options. I’ll chose Artisan every time. So stop reading this review immediately and reserve a booth or table. You should of done it half way through this anyhow. Oh and I forgot to mention the deserts. But I’ll leave some spontaneity for you to enjoy on your own, I’ve said enough.

They put pork or pork derivatives on many/ most.

Tastes great but the menu does not offer a main course for vegetarians. Out side of salad’s

They use a lot of foreign nouns to hide the pork fat/ oil’s and bacon.

So read it all.

Other then the investigation work required to get my partner a meal it was good. Shot of baileys for $10 for coffee is a little steep even for a high end joint.
