    The food was amazing. The salmon was cooked wonderfully and the purée gave it a sweet touch. The desserts were both very yummy. The cream brûlée was sweet and creamy treat, best way to end the dinner. The service was impeccable, there was never a time when I did not have my glass of water filled or had dirty dishes on the table. She had an amazing work ethic along with a phenomenal personality.

    This is still our favorite restaurant as they have always delivered an amazing experience. The food was great and staff were friendly. One thing I want to mention is that the caramel creme brulee which was always my favorite part of the night has continued to go downhill. This last time the creme was runny and the caramel grainy, this is a trend we've seen for the past several times we've been coming and I think they must have changed their recipe around a year ago, to its detriment. So the experience ended on a low note but overall still an amazing restaurant.

    This is our go to special dining occasion restaurant. The ambience, service, and importantly the food remain at the highest level. I especially like the craft cocktails, and that the food menu choices shift subtely with the seasons. A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for.

    As a previous review stated the best place is the bar area for dinner. It just has more energy! Service was excellent! Relatively expensive… they are very proud of their wine selection. Nice assortment of after dinner aperitif’s. I had the rib eye which was perfectly seasoned and cooked. My colleague had the filet which was also perfect. I would come back and try some other menu items.

    Well to start I got a call about 40 minutes before my reservation to confirm we were coming and to make sure we got the seating we preferred. I let them know I had never been so she told me the bar area is the preferred so I took it. We got there and it was very nice and clean and we were escorted to our table in the back of the restaurant with a view of the bar and the kitchen which was very nice! We were give the menus and our waitress made great suggestions and was super patient with us as my wife had a hard time making up her mind. From app to dinner to desert it was all amazing! The plus was that they took care of dessert as it was my wife’s birthday! We definitely will be back!

    Beautiful venue, delicious food, good service. We were happy to dine at Artisan, again. The service would have been great, but our server never topped up our wine glasses from the bottle we ordered. Does Artisan not do that? We had a bottle of sparkling water, and that was topped up consistently. Wine should be done, too. Overall, though, we enjoyed our dining experience.

    We were greeted by a very friendly manager upon entering from the rain. The bar area is not large, but adequate. We sat at the bar facing part of the kitchen -- fascinating to watch the chefs work. Our waitress was very friendly also and had a thorough knowledge of the menu items (even though we understood she was new at this job -- so the management's training must be very good). The food was top notch with a surprising amuse bouche to start. We will certainly return whenever we go through Elkhart.

    Anniversary dinner. Food was very, very good. All staff were very polite and friendly. They gave us free champagne and one dessert for our anniversary. Our server had a few bumps, a forgotten drink and side dish. Overall it was a very nice experience and food was delicious.

    We were in South Bend for the Notre Dame game and decided to look for something different and a bit farther from the chaos of football weekend for dinner. We found Artisan. What a gem! Beautiful space with lots of character, amazing wine list and eclectic menu. The food was awesome and the service was friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back the next time we are in town.

    The service wasn't par with the restaurant level... while the manager did a great job, the server couldn't care less ... maybe just a bad luck for a Tuesday when the restaurant was not too busy at all. Since it was my first time with the restaurant, I will certainly give it another try to check on the service again.

    My husband and I went to celebrate our anniversary and the staff could not have been more accommodating. When we got to the table, there was a Happy Anniversary card there waiting for us and they promptly brought us glasses of champagne. It was very sweet. The food was great! The potato and leek soup was incredibly rich, smooth, and flavorful. I had the salmon and my husband had the lamb and both were scrumptious. Wasn't quite sure what to make of the dessert, though, which included sweet corn ice cream and a small fried apple pastry. It was, perhaps, a little too subtle or nuanced. Could have used a bit more punch. Otherwise, very lovely and worth going to for special occasions.

    This was a celebration dinner. We were seated promptly and quickly greeted by both our server and the host of the restaurant. Excellent drinks were first, followed by delicious 'starters' and followed up by outstanding entrees. We shared a dessert and everyone left extremely pleased with the experience. Magnificent!
