    The atmosphere is nice. Sitting on the patio you get a nice water view. The presentation of the food was good, but the taste was just OK. I get the feeling this restaurant is more about the view than the food.

    I loved my dinner here! Most of the produce is locally sourced, and it looks like they pay attention to sourcing responsibly raised meat and seafood. The service was really on point--it reminded me like something out of "The Bear." My only complaint is that the chairs in the dining room that have kind of a webbed/wicker backing are a bit uncomfortable and a bit low for the table, but that would definitely not stop me from returning!

    The food and view from the patio table was perfection. Dempsey was our waitress who was very attentive and attentive. We celebrated our anniversary there and we treated to a chef’s extra tasting and a special dessert. Overall, best meal we’ve ever had.

    We had a wonderful table with two amazing views of the bay. The initial drink order was a bit slow on delivery, but overall we felt service was good. Had the farm board for an appetizer, perfect size for 2 and split the salmon which was outstanding. Topped dinner off with dessert....the spice cake, very happy with that choice!

    We had an incredible experience at Artisan! If you're able to sit outside, I would highly recommend it! You get a stunning view of the water. The service was 10/10 - from our server to the general manager to the host, everyone was SO warm and inviting! The wine selection and cocktails were delicious, apps were outstanding and the main course was so yummy! We can to celebrate my husband's birthday and we are so glad we can to Artisan! They made my husband and I feel SO special. We will definitely be coming back when we are in TC. :)

    Artisan represented the pre-eminent dining experience on our recent getaway to Traverse City. The service, ambiance, and most of all, the food, were par excellence. From cocktails to appetizers to special requests, Artisan more than met our expectations for a memorable fine dining excursion. Additionally, we got some unbelievable views of the Grand Traverse Bay to cap off an outstanding dining experience. We cannot wait to return, and cannot recommend the establishment enough!

    The food, as always, was spectacular! Unfortunately we were seated in the bar area near the sofas and there we a couple of children yelling and playing on iPads. Highly recommend requesting seating near the windows.
