Very good meal in a very nice setting. Service was attentive and knowledgeable. Noise level was quite and we liked the seating and background music. I will certainly return.
Food and service were outstanding
Awesome food and service.
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.
Book Club & Birthday Celebration
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).
Artisans is always top notch when it comes to food, service and value. We are repeat customers and have yet to be disappointed. If you want great French cuisine with excellent service, Artisans is it!!!
I was not overly impressed with the meal. The food was just ok. I won't be returning.
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.
I go often for the business lunch, it was delicious as always!
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.
Always fantastic! Been eating here for years and it never disappoints. Three course lunch is my go-to on weekdays.
A great restaurant for special occasions or everyday if you like. The entire crew was very attentive without being annoying. Great Birthday for my wife.
Staffed was knowledgeable on menu. Gave great recommendations.
Rafael was great and the food, music and ambiance were perfect. We will be coming back again.
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.
Enjoyed the three course business lunch menu. Excellent dishes on the menu to select from and the wine nicely complimented our meal. Great service and atmosphere.
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.
Masterfully cooked French fare, incredible flavors. Each dish a winner! Intelligent, engaging, and helpful waiters. Beautiful and warm ambiance.
Live jazz music on Friday nights takes the experience over the top!
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.
Refined, delicious food. Mouth-watering off-menu specials. Euro ambiance. You can watch the food being prepared in the open kitchen from the Chef’s table. Private rooms available.
A bit packaged looking place. Menu offered a good variety. Abundant portions. Overall a nice experience.
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.
excellent! the chefs table was amazing 👏.
Thank you, it was a nice dinner. Altough the price is high, you can try it for a special day…
Romantic & fancy restaurant, beautiful food with a smooth and intimate jazz band. Highly recommend the tasting menu, service was good
Service was incredible… food and apps were delicious!!
We celebrated my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary. We all agreed that the meal was one of the best we have ever had. Service was outstanding. We will definitely be dining here again.
Excellent food and staff
Amazing food, service and warm atmosphere. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Fantastic service and food. Highly recommend if you are looking for a special place.
The Sea Bass was to die for! Cheese plate and food grad fell a bit short but overall a very pleasant experience and we will visit again!
The food was delicious. My only complaint was the restaurant was a bit warm that day. But the service was fantastic. I will definitely be back to try the multiple course tasting menu!
Had the six and seven course tasting menus plus wine pairings. Amazing.
Phenomenal food! Wonder waiter Raphael. Can’t wait to return.
Fantastic experience. Great food with atmosphere. We sat at the chef’s table (aka bar) and it was so cool to watch them prepare the gourmet food.
Fabulous food and fabulous environment. Highly recommend for business meeting or romantic date with significant other.
