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.

I went with my boyfriend on a date and we wanted to splurge a bit and this is the place to do it, the food was great, the ambience was amazing, the service was amazing. They were patient, we were the last ones to leave and didn’t feel rushed, this is an amazing place to dine at, will definitely come back for another

We love this place! You can never go wrong. Dinner with the kids or out to impress first date. I recommend Artisans for what ever you are looking for. And the sea bass! Or the bisque!

Beautifully and artistically prepared food, but the sea bass and the ribeye steak both had a slightly sweet crust, which I did not like. Great service, lovely restaurant.

They welcomed us at the front and wished us a happy anniversary, when we sat down the waiter also wished us a happy anniversary... nice attention to detail that I was not expecting from reserving online thru Open Table. The food was awesome a little pricey however I was expecting that for this type of restaurant and had no problems paying it since the service and quality of food was great. Would defiantly go back again

Today was the day to meet Atisians; a classic French restaurant in Midtown. I tried the 7-course tasting menu with wine pairing. Was it worth it? Yes, absolutely. Wait it the best tasting menu ever? No, it was not. The lobster bisque and the foie gras were the highlights of the night. The red fish and the lamb were very good but not exceptional. Overall, the whole menu gave me some unexpected feelings of pleasure and savoir-faire. The service is simply pristine. The physical space combines sophistication and coziness, especially with the mid-light environment combined with the charming jazz singer accompanied with a tuned piano player. More than the food, Artisans give us a whole experience, making it one of the best restaurants I’ve ever visited in Houston. I’ll come back for sure. #midtownhouston #houstonchef #houstonfoodies #downtownhouston #htown #houstonrestaurants

Perfect date night spot. Had live jazz music on a Friday night. Would recommend the 6 or 7 course menu to try new things. Everything was delicious.

Very delightful food for Christmas Eve. We loved each course, good sauces, not too rich. Entertaining being seated around the kitchen so we can see the chefs prepare each course. We had a great experience.

Love the atmosphere. Had the tasting course menu and felt like it was more of an assembly line than someone taking care to give me the best food. Server forgot to serve my wine with one course. And I’ve determined that overall I’m not a fan of French entree food - the desserts are awesome though.

Great tasting French food! The six and seven course dinner was awesome! A little bit noisy next to the bar when there was a group that was waiting and stayed there for a while, but afterwards noise level went down.

As good a meal as I've had in years. This is high end dining in a welcoming and comfortable environment. Every detail was thoughtfully attended to. Not cheap but definitely an experience worth the money.

The food, service and hospitality was impeccable. Chef Fox is wonderful to visit with and his recommendations were amazing! This is a GREAT restaurant with amazing beef & seafood dishes and a very nice wine list that is very reasonably priced. We'll definitely be back.

The table next to us was way too loud and was getting lots of special attention. It was very distracting for what should have been a romantic date. The salads had no flavor. The vegetables in the dishes were the best part-aside from the spinach. It was the saltiest thing I have ever eaten and I love salty stuff.

This is my second visit to Artisans as we enjoyed the service, food and atmosphere so much the last visit I wanted to return. The second visit did not disappoint! The food and service is one of the best in Houston and we will regularly frequent this restaurant when we are in town. If you appreciate quality fine french dining, this is one of the best I have enjoyed.

I have dined here before and had a nice time. However, this last time, despite all 4 people at the table continuously ordering drinks, we had multiple people come by asking if we were done with the wine list. The last time, Grace, our waitress, just took the wine list off the table and walked away with it, without asking us if we wanted to order another glass (and 2 of us had just finished our glasses and were about to order another), which put a damper on the evening. Supposedly there are only 5 wine lists available at the restaurant, which is clearly not enough. Additionally, our first course was late, and our second course was served before we even finished our first course. The service that night left a lot to be desired.
