Ran out of my first choice of entree at 7pm. I got last serving of my second choice. Could this be because many elderly people go there for dinner from the Del Mar? There certainly were many left when we got there! Service ok but took two times to get bread and it took a while because it was “in the oven”. Isn’t that something that should be done ahead of time as part of prep?
Amazing duck breast dinner. Our first visit there and we can’t wait to go again!
The food and service were spectacular. Generous portions. Would recommend to anyone!
We loved everything! The food was excellent, fresh, and featured local ingredients. The service was very good, and the restaurant is absolutely beautiful. 10/10 we will come back!
This was a Valentine Day lunch and everything was terrific. The staff was friendly and fun. And the long stem rose for my wife was an added bonus.
An early celebration of Valentines day. Very pretty dining room and service was fine, BUT the menu is limited, uninspired and the food is not delicious. The wine by the glass is very nice and dessert was tasty.
So NOT worth the cost.
We've been to Artisan a number of times, and the food never disappoints. On this visit, my husband and I both order specials -- fluke and pork. Both were delicious. My issue with Artisan has always been the service. The bus service is typically outstanding, but the table service always leaves me disappointed. The server was neither knowledgable nor attentive. We expect more from a fine dining establishment such as Artisan.
Great food and service
Went for lunch to test and was very happy with this restaurant
Wonderful ambiance in this cozy and elegant restaurant in the Delamar, and good food too. The salmon comes on a bed of wilted spinach and is delicious. Attentive staff and good wine list. A winner!
We haven't been for a while and glad we went back. Our meals were excellent. Server was very accommodating and assisted in making an excellent choice of wine to go with all meals.
One of our favorite restaurants really disappointed with the unbelievably poor service. Waiter forgot about us the entire night and had an attitude. We were shocked
If dining inside, it's a dated, formal room. The food was very disappointing. The blue point oysters were so fishy, we sent them back after eating one. The waiter had no idea why they tasted that way, not did he offer a substitute. Moreover, my companion's plate of them sat on our table while we were served the next course! We had to ask for them to be removed. The gnocchi was acceptable, but the mushrooms were very chewy and unattractively garnished. The salmon was the best of the dishes ordered. It was properly cooked and served with potatoes which were very good. But I'll never go back. Not worth the money in terms of either the decor or the food.
Always love this place. Ambience is lovely and the food is great!
If you review the times we dined, I believe you will find we were at the Artisian on the 27th or 28th, the 4th and yesterday...
Had made a reservation and requested table 10 as we like the table location..When we arrived, the Hostess said the table was reserved for five....I had dined at the table when we were two , three and four..
Half way through our meal, we noticed the same Hostess seating four people....I had reserved the table and denied the table , telling us we were four when table was reserved for five and then to see four people being seated makes me wonder if your Hostess knows she is in HOSPITALITY business... been a customer for years and this Hostess spoiled the day....terrible
Food was great. We had a large group next to us that made our experience more noisy that in the past. We'll be back.
Lunch and weekend brunch are always great! The food is always good and the ambiance is very nice. The $21 includes an appetizer , entree and beverage. For $5 more u can add a dessert or glass of wine. They just raised the price nominally but regardless it’s well worth the cost. It’s a great place to get together with friends, do business or celebrate a special occasion. The acoustics ( unlike most restaurants) are good which makes it suitable for conversation. The service is always attentive and the chef easily allows for special requests. I go here frequently. I really love this restaurant ( for dinner too!)
We had a wonderful meal complete with great service and a fabulous setting.
I think the problems we experienced would be solved by more attentive management. The tuna tartare smelled fishy -- to the point we were uncomfortable eating it and sent it back. The busboy who brought the dishes and cleared the table had terrible BO which ruined those moments when he was nearby. These are basics a good manager wouldn't put up with and we don't plan to, again, either.
This is my favorite restaurant in the area.
Lovely leisurely meal with friends. Really appreciated the opportunity to relax and enjoy the evening.
The food and service were excellent. So many interesting choices, it was hard to choose. I had halibut and my husband had a burger, but it was an amazing burger. Prices are very high.
Perfect Evening! As always Artisan makes it’s a memorable experience no matter what the occasion!!
We had a wonderful family dinner with my 91 year old mother, who could hear everyone! We got to spend time dedicated to being together in an elegant setting, with delicious food and beautiful service. Thank you Artisan.
Great spot in Southport with good food and lovely setting
The food is always amazing, service is great and the atmosphere is awesome!
Second time around, as good as the first. Highly recommend it.
I enjoyed my lunch as the kitchen was able to accommodate me. I wanted salmon, but it wasn’t on the menu , only pieces in the salad. So they took the small pieces and put a few together as if it was one piece.
I would suggest that the restaurant add other vegetables to the menu (e.g., broccoli, string beans, carrots).
Hadn’t been here in awhile. Very, very good in all respects. Our waiter was a bit busy but another member pitched in to get us some drinks. Duck and salmon entrees were excellent. Most memorable was an appetizer of game ravioli. Wow.
I often dine here. The menu and the service are excellent.
Beautiful Birthday for Ron
We were pleasantly surprised and will definitely revisit The Artisan
One of my favorites. Nice choices and a great place to have a conversation. Staff very professional and anticipate what you might want. Always enjoy it.
Excellent service and food
Superb food, the cocktails are delicious, the place is cozy and warm and beautifully designed. We will come back for sure, maybe just enjoying the lounge and its fireplace.
would not make a omelet because frittata was a special
Food was really great!
Consistently excellent. The prix fixe lunch is an outstanding value!
Great atmosphere in the tavern area. Warm and cozy by the fireplace. Great service from the hostess to the wine steward to the wait staff and bussers. Food was delicious as was the wine. We had delicious Brunello di Montalcino , tuna crudo , steak and duck. The only disappointing dish was the creme brule. It was okay, but the madelaine on the plate was delicious.
We enjoyed this dinner very much.
