We always have an amazing time at Artisans. The food is wonderful and the service always impeccable. I love everything on a menus but I and as it happens my European friends love the creme brûlée very classic vanilla flavor. Artisans has “trio” on the menu which is three varieties of that dessert. I did try it in a past and unfortunately end up not eating the two flavors at all…. Last night the waitress overheard my debate on what to order and went out of her way to finding out the availability of the vanilla creme brûlée for our table! It was such a special treat! Thank you! Made our day!
I only hope that cheif will put classic creme brûlée as a option on a regular menu!

We arrived at the start of dinner service and our waiter had little else to do so he hovered at our table. Rushed our orders. Food was good but we had better on prior occasion. Redfish with squid ink pasta was fine. Good wine choices

My husband and I had a double birthday and wedding anniversary to celebrate and went here for dinner. The food was amazing. I am vegetarian and enjoyed the assiette vegeterienne. Excellent wine list. Will be back!

My favorite restaurant in Houston. You’ll love what Chef Jacques Fox has created from every aspect. There’s a reason he was just nighted by the French government. You’ll never meet someone more French and more Texas than Chef Jacques! Bon Appetit!

Always have fun at Artisan's on New Years Eve & the food did not disappoint, it was absolutely delicious! However service was poor & at times we felt forgotten. Waited ages for several of our courses & had to ask a passing hostess for our food. Very poor for such a good restaurant.

When we arrived we had to insist for a table for 2 in the main restaurant & yes we had booked weeks in advance. They kept saying it was at the chefs table or in the room with the jazz band. Had no tables for 2 elsewhere. Eventually after we refused this offer several times they separated a table for 4 into 2 tables for 2. So things did not have a good start. It was a very disappointing even apart from the food.

Food was delivered in small portions - unrelated with the asking price. The Sea Bass was prepared in advance ... it was so dry and had a horrible taste (+ plus very small portion). Salad was ok but in very small quantity.
Wines, no pre tasting for the regular wines listed. The foie gras listed at 10 dollars extra was so small that i think it is a real joke. French restaurants are generous with their specialties. I consider myself a good French cook (40 years experience) and the real French restaurants are by far another spirit concerning portions and quality of cooking. You can always improve. Try it with the real French approach. Good luck.

Staff and valet mostly unmasked which was tone deaf as Omnicron cases rise. Food nice but pace a little too fast for 4 course preset.

Awful dining experience for their Christmas Eve menu - despite visiting twice before, won’t be going back. The food was entirely bland and unseasoned (soggy asparagus and tasteless fennel for example) just wholly underwhelming. Many of our dishes went back to the kitchen almost full as food was just unpleasant. Mixed our wine with someone else’s by pouring one into the other, not helped because you can’t keep your own wine bottle at your table. Four courses rushed through in less than an hour must be a world record for getting guests out the door.

Overpriced for what it is; there are plenty of other better dining options in Houston.

Dinner near the open chef’s kitchen. Service was relaxed, yet very efficient and spot on. Perfect wine pairings. Atmosphere- was good- could have been warmer/cozier. Dinner also good- but not as good a value as I had hoped. I will return- sit in salon on next trip.

Wonderful date night out to spend time with the wife and have the child at home with a sitter.

Only criticism is the food causing us stomachaches later in the night and following morning.
