Our favorite restaurant for special occasions. We sat in the wine room again this time which we always love. Escargot, tenderloin and bouillabaisse were all fantastic.

We love everything about Artisans! The ambiance, music, comfy seating across from the bar, all very romantic. The 7-course tasting menu was sublime and Julie was perfect-her service was impeccable, on time and unobtrusive. Our new favorite restaurant!

Artisans is an excellent choice for any occasion! Everything on the menu is perfection, and the ambience and staff are simply the best. We had the 6-course tasting menu, and it was worth every penny.

Cannot praise this restaurant enough, every time I’ve been there all the food has been fantastic. Atmosphere is quite lovely, and the service is great. In my opinion the best French restaurant in Houston.

Artisans continues to be one of our favorite places in Houston. The food is wonderful - anything on the menu is delicious and there is a very nice vegetarian option too. The wine list is excellent and extensive, which one would expect from Jacques. And the service was fantastic - thanks, Caitlin (sorry if the spelling is incorrect).

We recently relocated to Houston from the DC Metro area and chose this restaurant based on reviews. We were very impressed with quality of food and cocktails. Ordered a steak which has a subtle sweetness in the glaze...each bite was treat. Also ordered the sea bass and it was a perfectly cooked...not too soft or firm. This is a place I will recommend to people who visit and plan to go back. Only feedback is given pandemic is still not under control we were a little surprised to see no staff wearing masks so keep in mind if that will make you uncomfortable.

Celebrating a birthday… food was amazing as always.

The attention to detail by the kitchen is impressive leaving no chance for failure.

Started with the melt in your mouth Foie Gras. C'est magnifique.

Pistachio crusted Sea-bass, creamy risotto and baby bok choy was crazy delicious. Wife got the lobster, creamy risotto and asparagus which she said was delicately cooked & outstanding.

One of the best meals I have eaten in the past 2 years. Thank you Sir Jacque & staff for a fabulous experience.

Food is reliably great. Service is a relaxed pace, but it fits the French restaurant feeling. After 18 months of waiting to return for an in person meal at Artisans, it was even better than I remember. The take out options were great during 2020, but the atmosphere and attention to detail at the restaurant set Artisans apart from many other great restaurants in Houston. It makes it feel special any night you dine there.

The food was spectacular. The only thing that made the experience a little less than perfect was the service. While the service was OK it could've been a little better. For example the manager on duty seemed like he was constantly checking up on the tables around us but never once asked us how we were doing or how the food was. The server seemed to be waiting on the entire restaurant so he literally was running around so busy. He did a fine job though with how busy he was. When we left the hostess and another co worker were too busy talking to each other to greet us on the way out. While not deal breakers I guess I would expect a little better service from a fine dining restaurant. However the food was spectacular! Would definitely go back for the food.

The six course meal was amazing! Beautifully presented, perfect temperature, and just right. Add a bottle of wine and you’re set! Expect to pay quite another for this dining experience, but it delivered. Not for my every day dining, but perfect for a celebration.

Food and Hospitality were very good. My wife and I enjoyed ourselves. It was a little overpriced though. They did take the extra steps to make our anniversary special so that went a long way.
