I’m from out of state, visiting my children. I wanted to treat them to dinner. Somewhere they probably would not go to on their own. We had a wonderful evening. The service and the food were excellent. There was even talk of them returning with their spouses.
We had the six and seven course menu option with the wine pairing. Excellent!!!
Valentine's Day fixed menu was excellent, and the service on a freezing cold rainy night was still top-notch. Attention should be given to the table footings...both our table and the one next to us "rocked" to the extent that water easily sloshed from the (very nice) water glasses. We had to ask one of the staff to put a shim under the base.
Amazing night. This was our first time and we will be coming back.
One of the best restaurants in Houston. This is to French food what MF is to sushi. Just go!
We had the Valentine's Day 6/7 course meals with wine pairings and both were excellent. The service was terrific and our server took the time to go over each course, the wine characteristics, and even a little history. It was a great experience!
decent food. some of the tasting menu courses take way too long in between. I also ordered a cappuccino at the end and they never brought it to me. Pretty fun to sit at the counter to watch the kitchen.
Had the 6 course tasting menu, they were willing to replace items due to allergies. Everything tasted fantastic!
Amazing food! Definitely book a reservation at the chefs table !
Our first time to experience French. We went on Jazz band night which was a great three man band. Our waiter was so friendly and helpful through the whole night. We tried the Chefs 6 course meal with wine pairing. We got to try such amazing courses and everyone of them had its own wine that paired superbly. It was so much fun and I highly recommend the experience.
Spent an early Valentine’s Day here for dinner and it was absolutely beyond delicious. Everything from the bread to the salads were amazing, but the lamb loin and ribeye were ridiculously good. And dessert!!! Can’t wait to return soon!
Great stuff, give me 10% coupon again, please. The staff did a great job
Excellent food & wine with outstanding service. Atmosphere was perfect for a date, crossdressed girlfriend was comfortable & she was treated with respect. Will go back again next time in Houston!!!
My boyfriend and I went to Artisans to celebrate a early valentines' dinner as he is working on the actual day. We wanted to try French cuisine, but this is not for us. The ambience is nice and service was great, though a little too dimmed lit for a good picture. Overall, great experience except this is not our palate.
Artisan's is simply the BEST! The ingredients, creativity, attention to detail, and service puts it in a class by itself. Well done!
It was incredible
If they’re special to you, take them to this restaurant. You won’t regret it
Great food. My husband had the 6 course menu. All delicious. I had tuna and halibut special also excellent. We shared the exceptional chocolate mousse dessert. This is just great cooking with care.
Amazing service, amazing food
This place is amazing! Phenomenal food and service. Just that simple
Great time, awesome food and wonderful service
The food and service were fantastic! The Chilean Sea Bass was delicious as were the pan seared scallops and ravioli. We also loved the peppered tuna and escargot. A fun night out!
Excellent birthday dinner! We all had the six course dinner and were more than pleased with all selections. My daughter had the wine pairing and thoroughly enjoyed! This was our first visit but we will return!
Romantic birthday with great food, ambiance and elegant live music on a Friday night.
Every time I go the food, service and ambience is superb!
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 service and food are always excellent, easy parking in the garage and the owner is always around greeting his guests.
We had an incredible time celebrating our anniversary. Thank you for everything.
Great restaurant and service. Food was a bit under-seasoned
It was wonderful. Not only was the food incredible but we were served by the manager and his service was PHENOMENAL!!!!
Quiet and romantic atmosphere, perfect for our anniversary. Service was great, Grace was our host. The table behind us was fussy but we had a blast. Thank you Grace.
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.
Romantic quite cozy loved it food was delicious service was excellent
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.
Service subpar, food was meh. $80pp Xmas Eve 5 course dinner. Below average French cuisine. Very disappointed. $757 bill. Could have patronized many fabulous Restaurants in Houston tonight. Very disappointed.
Always a great choice for a quiet date or meeting friends. Creative chef.
Great food and great service! Artisans never disappoints.
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.
Terrible food. Not French.
Food not cooked properly, meat tasted spoiled. Could not be eaten.
Servers tried their best. Will not go back and would not recommend it.
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.
