Artisan Ratings and Reviews
Atmosphere is wonderfully cozy! Perfect mood lighting for a romantic evening with your loved one. Food is always excellent! We had the Lamb Chops special tonight, which was cooked to a perfect medium-rare. Very tender and absolutely delicious! Makes you want the whole lamb! The side of creamy polenta is amazing - think of mashed potatoes that are more dense and melt in your mouth. This combo mixed with the side of chopped brussel sprouts was fantastic!
As always everything was great at Artisan. Food was delicious and our waiter was awesome! Our only complaint is we got there for a 2:30 reservation. The host sat us and said “The kitchen closes at 2:30 but I told the Chef to wait because you were coming.” My husband and I both were dumb founded as to why he said this. Why take a 2:30 reservation if the kitchen closes at 2:30? This comment by the man who sat us was not necessary. It took our experience from 5 stars to 4.
Artisan is one of my favorite restaurants in the Westport/Fairfield area. I often meet clients or friends here for lunch as there is a terrific price fixed menu, elegant table settings (white table cloths), great service & you never feel pressured to leave the table. Also a great dinner spot with valet parking ~ so much easier than looking for a spot in downtown Westport. Love this restaurant and will be back in the future!
Although food and service was great, my request for a birthday oriented dessert to share was ignored/overlooked by the staff. I'm wondering if this is a restaurant or Open Table shortcoming. Why do you add special requests to the Open Table Reservation when they are not acknowledged? Overall, love Open Table concept, but falling short on the special request arena.
Artisan is our local "go to" spot for a casual lunch in the tavern or a special occasion. The rooms are beautiful, the service always courteous. The menu is seasonal and local, the food is perfectly executed. There's something for everyone--gorgeous salads with the most pristine greens, comfort food like fish and chips or omelettes, and probably the best burger you'll ever eat on a homemade English muffin. The fries are freshly made, thin and crispy. I'm addicted to the chicken liver mousse, serviced alongside a frisee salad with dried cherries and garlic toast. The $19 lunch prix fixe is a really good deal--first and main courses plus coffee or tea. $4 more for a glass of wine or dessert. I adore this place and we're lucky it's in our neighborhood.
Ten of us went to celebrate the birthday of one. The restaurant exudes gracious, sophisticated dining in a relaxed and artistic atmosphere. Their prix fixe lunch menu is truly a wonderful value.
We had brought our own birthday cupcakes which our server, Grayson, presented ceremoniously to the table with candles lit on individual plates which he had beautifully garnished.
Everyone left exhilarated from the experience and looking forward to returning. A memorable dining experience.
My wife and I went for our anniversary and had a very positive experience. Atmosphere in the main restaurant is very nice. Food was solid as was the service and we felt that the price was appropriate for the value we got. Also, the bartender overheard that it was our anniversary, must have told the Manager and he brought us each a glass of Champagne in the house. Very nice touch! 👍
Outstanding food, service, and setting. The tuna crudo was bursting with flavors and pleasant surprises in every bite. The squash ravioli melted in your mouth, rich in flavor without being heavy. Delightful rose by the glass (and some killer french fries) topped off a delicious meal.
I had taken my girlfriend here for her birthday and was blown away with how beautiful and cozy this restaurant is. The Waiter and staff were wonderful and very polite. We had clams as an appetizer and they were on par with some of the best I’ve had. (New England has some great clams) and out entree’s were beautifully prepared as well as well cooked. Would 100% come here again.
Good food, good ambiance, but unhappy with the service experience. The bartender was rude. Didn’t greet us. Then told an inappropriate joke. Our dinner waiter was fine, but our dessert order was lost. Water glasses were not refilled. At a high end restaurant, top notch service is expected.
Enjoyed the restaurant week dinner; beef carpaccio as a starter and skirt steak with fries as
the main course were great, the steak perfectly charred and tender, with bearnaise sauce. Dessert of profiteroles was very tasty. Sat inside, lots of tables busy outside on a warm evening. Service was friendly and efficient. Highly recommend.
Artisan is a really nice restaurant and have been here several times for different occasions. The food has always been really good, but this time around we were really disappointed in the service. When the "manager" comes over to take your drink/dinner order you know there is a problem and we felt it. Disappointing given the "price point" of this restaurant.
