We are a group of 4 business guys that love to have our meetings here at Artisans when we can. The food is great and the lunch menu is very reasonable priced. The management and staff are incredibly nice and make you feel welcome and show that they really appreciate your business.

The Artisan is a 3 star restaurant at 5 star prices and couldve had much better customer service. We had to order our meals 3 times and the wrong food was brought to our table. We ordered 1 glass of white wine twice and they brought out a red and brought out the wrong dessert twice. Under no circumstances should a 20% tip have been included with our bill. The food was as ordinary as a 3 star restaurant. I've had much better steak at Saltgrass for 40% of the price. The Artisan should be embarrassed by the portions they serve at the prices the charge and their staff should be properly trained. For a Tuesday night, our food should have been delivered much faster and not taken an hour and dessert shouldnt have taken an additional hour. They did however check on our table every minute for payment like we were going to run out on the ticket which is quite offensive considering we were the only Hispanics in the restaurant. The other parties were NOT treated in such a manner.

The restaurant is very clean. The ambiance is beautiful and romantic. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. I only wish they enforced a strict dress code due to the restaurant being one of fine dining. Other than that my dining experience was great and and the quality was worth the price.

We went for our first year anniversary, the restaurant was almost empty. Our waitress was very good, however the manager didn’t have any sense of hospitality. He came by our table to ask if everything was good, we let him know that we didn’t like the duck dish that we ordered. It was dry and didn’t taste like duck. He asked if we want anything else, we declined because we were full. Other plates were good, nothing exceptional like other french upscale restaurants in Houston. We were surprised to see that we were charged for the plate which we complained about..Overall the restaurant looks upscale and the ambiance was good but the food doesn’t measure up. There are much better alternatives in Houston for upscale french dining.

Perfect ambiance and service. Gorgeous restaurant and superb service by our waiter Jon and staff. Nice to have the manager drop by and ask how we were doing. Very nice hostess helped me set up the table early on before my date and I arrived.

We chose the 6- and 7-course meals with the wine pairings -- a lot of work on the part of the waiter and kitchen to get right, but was perfectly executed down to the smallest details. The waiter described to a T every course when it arrived and the glass of wine that accompanied each. All the silverware was meticulously replaced for every course and all used plates and wine glasses removed promptly. Every course arrived in perfect time, albeit we had to slow the progression down a bit at one point -- we hadn't finished our wine before the next one would arrive.

The food for the most part was very good. Some courses exceptional (lobster bisque, the scallops, the seared foie gras, the desserts) while others were a letdown (the lamb loin was too lean with no flavor even with the sauce, the steak was subpar and the snapper was drowned in a brown sauce that neither of us thought paired well with fish. The waiter did inform us beforehand that the lamb was grass fed and would be lean but we figured it would taste good nonetheless. It did not.) Despite a few missteps on three of the 13 courses the food was delicious. Having about 7 of 13 courses be amazing is certainly nothing to complain about, however about 1/4 - 1/3 of the dishes we've had there in the past have been just so-so. Tonight was decidedly better thankfully, but this is why I give 4 not 5 stars. The impeccable service helped.

We had a wonderful time in one of the finest restaurants in Houston. Kudos to the chef & crew who made last night an evening not to forget.

Note: the 6- or 7-course prix-fixe options require that there be a lot of interaction between you & the servers, so an intimate meal is better had by ordering fewer courses a la carte from the main menu.

The service staff was awesome. There was a nice quite environment. Could have used some more lighting to see the menu. The food however could have used more flavor. I was very disappointed in how much we paid for what we were served. The main item on each plate was very bland. The items that actually had taste were sides/garnish; and there was not enough of the sides/garnish to help the plate.

I’ve never had bad experience or meal here. This was maybe our 15th time dining here. We adore the ambiance. The food is exceptional. The service is outstanding. This time we ordered one of every appetizer and dessert. But I stuck to my usual for my entree, the pistachio crusted Chilean sea bass. It’s amazing! Do try this restaurant.
