Dined for lunch. It is a very good place for a business meal. Very good wine selection. The lunch menu has a limited selection of entrees. Had the fish and chips which was very good quality and had potential but was not crispy. I suspect the oil was not hot enough or that my order sat to long in the kitchen. Likely a one off experience given my previous positive experiences.

I was extremely disappointed with the new menu. Not a lot of choices and food was sub par.

Service was bland and unfriendly also.

Used to be one of my favorites..not anymore!

Apparently our server was called to duty elsewhere in the restaurant. Never informed us and never brought the drink my wife had ordered. We asked another server, still no cocktail. Then asked the manager, same result. Having a clear view of the bar I could see the bartender and no drinks were being made. Finally my wife walked up to the bar and ordered and retrieved her Mimosa.
Not what I’ve come to expect from Artisan.

Beautiful dining room. Excellent, well presented food. Nice selection of interesting cocktails. Prompt, warm friendly service by everyone from the hostess to our waiter to the sommelier. Great place for a special occasion. Not inexpensive, but very reasonable and well worth the price of admission.

Great birthday lunch for my wife. Deal on the lunch special was great. I put on the reservation that it was her birthday and they brought out a delicious dessert with a candle even though we didn't order dessert. Excellent service. Food was delicious.

I love Artisan. It is one of my favorite restaurants in CT. Went during restaurant week and it was outstanding. Everything great, but one of our dining companions asked for a glass of cabernet and the waiter brought the most expensive glass of wine on the menu at over $20. He didn't even suggest any of the other cabernet options, which is not right. Otherwise, great experience.

Usually my favorite restaurant but it started off poorly when they gave us a bad table in the bar area, even though the dining room had plenty of empty tables. When I asked to move to the dining room, it was made to sound like a big deal. Our appetizers came before our drinks and we always felt rushed. Then the people at the bar filled up so they were very close to our table. Food was still very good but the service let it down and got the feeling that every other diner was more important than us. Unhappy especially since we’ve been going there since they opened, and this was our worst experience there. Don’t feel like going back any time soon.

We ate at Artisan during the Fairfield Restaurant Week. I ordered off that week's special menu while my guest ordered off the main menu. We both ordered an appetizer and main meal; I also ordered a cocktail and a dessert. All was delicious!

We had no less than 5 different servers, and they tried to clear our plates before we were done constantly. A million people came to our table but never when we needed them. They took my husbands plate while I was still eating. I had the chicken breast and could not cut through it with a butter knife. We felt rushed to leave even though we had an 8:15 pm reservation.

Came for my anniversary and was given a perfect table for it but unfortunately it went downhill from there. Ordered drinks and a nice bottle of wine which we had opened to let it breathe. It would still be breathing if we didn’t begin to pour it ourselves as our waiter never poured it for us once, even when he stopped by and our glasses were empty. As for food, my wife’s halibut came out severely undercooked. She sent it back and it came back, after a very long time, cooked right but without any of the accompaniments it originally came with. Then we had to flag down another waiter to try and order dessert. Too bad, this place was a favorite in years’ past but seems like they might have been understaffed for a Saturday night.

It was a lovely place to eat outdoors and the food was absolutely delicious. Service was good & the staff were super friendly which made it such nice experience. We were surprised by a happy anniversary dessert which we hadn’t mentioned so it was a very unexpected surprise. Definitely worth a visit if you haven’t tried it yet !!

What a gem of a find this place was. We've been living in CT for 11 years and only just discovered Artisan. Where have we been? Very likely the single best meal we've had in Connecticut since moving out of NYC. We went here for our anniversary and can't recommend it highly enough.

My favorite spot on the banquet faces the whole room which looked so beautiful with the new table lighting and tablecloths. Very romantic and charming. The service was great and the waiter went the extra mile to get me raspberry sauce for my ricotta donuts.
Food was excellent though onion soup didn’t seem to be made with Gruyere cheese.

My husband I sat outside and enjoyed a wonderful meal. The oysters were lovely. Ambiance lovely outside. My fish and chips was great. My husband enjoyed his steak. The donuts were out of this world.

The outside space is nicely done. We love it. We will be back soon.

Total disaster-
We were seated and waited over 20 minutes for anyone to bring us the drink we had ordered. Moved to the bar for the hope of better service, and we could not get anyone to even get us a drink.
We ended up leaving without having dinner.

Service was bad. Waiter was nice but not attentive. Took forever to get our drinks and food. Also had multiple weird bus boys that kept approaching the table. By the time we received our first round of drinks the ice had melted half way. Food is lackluster at best especially for the prices. Menu needs an update. Great name and great decor especially with outside seating.
