Best foie gras I have ever had in USA, same for scallops appetizer. Real French food, French portions, French bread. That is my restaurant in Houston.
Always one of the premier places in Houston to eat Jacques Fox has never disappointed and I have been coming for years
First French restaurant in Houston. But Being French I really recommend this place, everything tasted so good
Started off good. 12:30 reservations. Had the pre fixe Business Lunch. 1st course went fine. There was a large private party in front room. Seemed all servers were devoted to them . Main course came out lukewarm. Asked for salt/ pepper.....salt dish was empty. Our waiter went around entire restaurant looking for salt. We had also ordered a second glass of wine. No wine. No salt. Ate food that was well past warm. Finally got salt & wine after asking several staff. Large group was leaving & suddenly several staff were filling water glasses, etc. Birthday request on open table was fulfilled with candle & Happy BDay plate ( dessert was 3rd course ). Used to be first class. Too bad, no longer.
Another great meal at Artisans. Best fish entrees in town and lobster bisque is best I have ever had.
We’re looking for late seating on Saturday and we’re delighted by the availability the excellent attentive server and choice and quality of food. We spent wonderful night enjoyed the food presentation and ability of the chef to accommodate our requests. Will come back as often as it’s legally permitted.
This was our second visit, and we had another excellent meal. We chose to sit at the area where we could view the cooks working, and we both chose one of the chefs selection fixed price meals (my wife got the wine pairings to go with hers).
The food is amazing, and thoughtfully prepared. Everything's fresh, balanced, and the ingredients are all of high quality.
We especially enjoyed the foie gras and our respective entrees (lamb but the amuse bouche, seafood selections, and desserts were delicious as well. The pastry chefs obviously take pride in their craft, and it was fun watching them work from our seats.
The waitstaff is professional and well trained/prepared to explain the menu and give suggestions. Nothing is left to chance here.
I'll continue to recommend this restaurant and it will remain one of our top choices for special nights out.
Artisans felt like an overpriced tourist trap. We had the 6 course tasting menu. The food seemed to be bulk prepared and was about the quality I’d expect at a banquet type function. Nothing was bad but some items were cold and it was mediocre. The wine list was way overpriced - charging $65+ for what I know to be $10 a bottles of wine. We won’t be back.
Best restaurant in Houston! Food is divine. Service is impeccable. Overall best all around.
We were at Artisans for Valentines. The food was amazing and the flavors complimented one another beautifully. The staff was attentive and helped us pair a delightful wine with our dinner.
We will definitely return!
We had a valentines day rez which meant prix fixe and all that goes with it. Overall, the service was ok, but the food was not really all that great. Fish was served warm vs hot and the prix fixe probably was not what we would have ordered. Not really a fan of French food so maybe not our best idea
Took my spouse to the Valentines dinner, which has a fixed seven course menu at a set price. The only choice was beef Wellington or sea bass for the entree so, between the two of us, we ordered both and shared. The entrees were both excellent. The foie gras appetizer course was memorable as it included a small amount of foie gras flavored ice cream; I generally don’t order foie gras as I have all too often been disappointed but this presentation was stellar. The rest of the courses were all highly enjoyable. The wine and cocktail list is ample but Artisans has a special on several different bottles so we elected for a bottle of sparkling rose. The wait staff was friendly and professional. If I were to have a complaint, it would be that there should have been about 4-5 minutes more between courses as a 7 course dinner should be leisurely presented and enjoyed over at least 2 hours.
Enjoyed the food. Service was somewhat close and inattentive.
Valentine’s Dinner the day before Valentine’s Day. Wonderful service. Outstanding food. Always perfect. One of the best restaurants period!
Gregory was amazing,and the food outstanding,thee course lunch and great deal
Dinner and the wait staff were pleasant, but the staff knew nothing about wine, which detracted from the experience.
Always great food ! Artisans is our favorite place for business lunch or dinner before the opera. Chef Fox always welcomes us.
Amazing French Cuisine. Don’t waste money at a steak house when you’ll get a better beef here for much less. Chef Jacques is the man!
We each had the Six course menu with wine pairings. The food was amazing and the wines really did a nice job of enhancing each course. Pricey but recommended for special occasions.
Very good experience. Gregory is amazing and very caring about the customer experience.
Simply the best in Houston.
Love the quiet rooms or where you can watch the chefs.
Had a wonderful date night. Enjoyed the food and the atmosphere.
Love the environment, the service is good but nothing special. The snails were amazing, done in a unique way not in shells but in a dish with lots of yummy butter sauce to sop up. The veal chop was overcooked and tough. Good wine selection.
The restaurant was extremely dark. It was difficult to read the menu. When we arrived there was still a little daylight and we were sitting at the window. The outside light aided some to read the menu.
Once the food arrived the daylight was gone and despite the fact that the manager had brought three more votives, we were not able to see the food.
People at other tables were using the light on their phones to be able to read the menu.
This is unacceptable.
The food was good but overpriced.
Loved our experience at Artisans!
Food was fantastic. Service was OK. Asked when making reservation if it was a special occasion. It was. They never acknowledge it. Disappointed
Very nice restaurant. Food and service were great. The price is high, but you get what you pay for.
I like this place a lot. Quiet and comfortable. The food is a little pricey for me and I wasn't super impressed by it, but I'd go back for another try.
My first course was over cooked and dry, 2nd course was too salty. I quickly notified the chef and every dish afterwards was perfectly executed. Maybe they were training someone new? Artisans is consistently good and though there was a glitch tonight, they remedied it and we had a delicious meal. Bravo!
If you are 2 people looking for a good table, Artsians doesn’t have one. There is no space for a couple to sit. I felt like I was on top of the next table. The service could have been better, our services was nice but no too attentive. He was more attentive to the white couples.
Amazing! Our waiter was perfect. Pairings were perfect, definitely recommend the tasting.... but come very hungry!
Valet parking only, took 15 minutes to drop off car and 30 minutes to retrieve. Wait staff was slow and inattentive. Fish was not fresh.
