Good Covid protocols made for relaxing experience. We were seated promptly, service was efficient and friendly. We ordered from the brunch menu, so unfortunately not able to comment on the fine dining choices available at lunchtime, but the food we had was very nice. Drinks and coffee were very good.

Our dinner for a party of four was lovely. The food was outstanding, as was the service. Who could ask for anything more? Looking forward to our next dining experience at Artisan.

The food is always good here, especially the fish and pasta. Would like to have more variety in white wines by the bottle; they are ~90% Chardonnay.

The V-day menu was poor, we both had the lobster. Cold in the middle and it was really missing flavor. It was advertised butter poached, it did not taste like it. It was overall very disappointing and the service was very scattered and unattentive. I would not return.

We were very disappointed in our recent visit to Artisan. The service was good, but the food was a major disappointment. Two of us ordered the Seafood Chowder for an appetizer and agreed it was cold and had no flavor. Too much focus on presentation and not enough on execution, in my opinion. The Jumbo Scallop entree smelled very fishy and tasted bad, so I didn't eat them for fear of getting sick. Lastly, I ordered two glasses of wine and the pour was inconsistent, one resembled a tasting. We want to support our local establishments, so we will give it another try.

Great menu options. Considering the COVID issue, we were the only ones in the restaurant; however, we've been there numerous times prior to the pandemic and it's always been energetic but not like a loud bar scene.

Support your local restaurants! Artisan is a wonderful farm-table boutique hotel restaurant. Located inside the Delamar of Southport. Great wine list and the food is always 5 star in preparation, presentation and flavor. Wonderful, comfortable decor with a nice bar area. Highly recommend anything with prepared with fresh truffles. Homemade pasta's, farm raised lamb and local oysters always available. Personal favorites are gnocchi with truffles and the rack of lamb. For dessert, the ricotta donuts are sinfully delicious. My wife and I have been here dozens of times and never have been disappointed.

The cioppino was a disappointment. Wrong broth. The two slabs of fried fish did not belong and where were the mussels, clams or other fish in shell?

Soup was OK but almost cold.

The pecan pie was outstanding as was the espresso

Service was excellent as was ambiance.

Artisan has gone downhill - the service has become very poor and the menu choices are stale and have odd flavors. Then there were things specifically bad: off tasting aioli, shell in the crab-cakes, and soggy fries. Yuck!

This was my second trip to Artisan and while my first experience was "better", this was fair at best. The service was nothing special. I even had to get up and ask the hostess if we had a waiter covering our table. The food was okay but nothing special. I don't know if "Covid times" had anything to do with it but I'm not sure I would go back.

Outdoor spacing. Had to ask several times for heaters to be turned on. Waiter was very good. Food was delicious. Hostess forgot birthday deserts 3 times, I complained to Mgr and after 25 minutes they brought out deserts with no charge. Need to fix overall communication, but a good night

Leisurely service is one thing, but forgetful and inattentive is another! Why did 4 people come to our table to ask the same questions? And overcooking my burger is not acceptable. Sorry, they just charge too much to be so sloppy! I do love hanging out chatting when I feel things are taken care of. But chasing down someone to order drinks isn’t cool either.

Food was lovely I must say!! My fiancée and I tried the Black Sea bass and hanger steak and where a bit surprised of the flavor profile in both dishes really good , I had wine my fiancée had champagne price was reasonable that part of the experience was good. Now! service isn’t all that you could tell by observing that the servers are inexperienced an it kinda take away from the ambiance and the food which in my opinion really good tasting dishes.
