Wonderful first visit! Greeter was so friendly, as well as our lovely server, Karla. We did the tasting menu & we were never rushed and the portions were amazing! I had to take some home, which I rarely ever do. We will definitely be going back.

Good was fantastic, wine list is extensive & offers value buys, ambiance was great. Wait staff was extremely slow in taking order & delivering check, though it's possible the restaurant was shorthanded during Houston's current 'mask order'. I'll go back.

From the moment you enter, you are in a French Chateau. There is warmth, joy and smells aplenty. When you are seated there is a friendliness that makes you feel welcome. The food is crazy good. I had the Chilean sea bass which is prepared with Panko and my partner had the Steak au poivre. Both dishes were amazing. I was going to pass on dessert but my partner order the creme brulee and it came in 3 flavors. Fortunately they don't care for cherry which I do ... so voila I enjoyed the cherry. I had tea which is properly brewed with tea leaves. Everything was perfect. The owner came over to chat and that was a nice touch. Wine list looked extensive, but we did not imbibe. This place is truly amazing. It's pricey, but worth it. I wish they had a 3 course meal or pre-theatre price fixed meal so I could go more often. A "do not miss for Houston". [I'd love to add in the proper accents but I don't know how to do that on Mac].

Artisans Restaurant is our "go-to" restaurant for a special night out. The food and service are always amazing. You simply must have the Fois Gras when you go, it is a real treat. This restaurant is wonderful with just two people, or an entire group of any size. If you go with just the two of you, you might ask for the counter, which is basically like being at the chef's table. You will be able to watch the chefs in the kitchen with a birds eye view. Or, be seated at one of the tables and they are all great. Chef Jacque is usually there on Friday and Saturdays and he is wonderful to visit with. I highly recommend this restaurant!

First, thank you, Jacques, for opening up again so soon. It was simply wonderful to come back to enjoy the great food and wine at Artisans. The "Volaille et son Homard" is the best plate according to my wife. And the new vegetarian dish is so delicious. Thanks to Pedro for the excellent service. Overall, just excellent.

We had a delightful evening at Artisans. The food is delicious and creatively prepared and presented. The staff is friendly and efficient. It was truly wonderful to get out for dinner at one of our favorite restaurants and see and hear other very happy people enjoying an evening out. It has been far too long a wait, but Artisans is always worth waiting for.

It was jazz night and we sat at the chef's counter. We had Russell and the team cooking in front of us and the trio cooking behind. Doesn't get much better than that. Our server took time to review the updated menu. My wife had the redfish and I had the market catch - sea bream (a fish you hardly ever see in the US but one of my favorites). Both were prepared to perfection. Food was great, the ambiance was special too. Can't say it is a bargain but a great place for a date or special occasion.

Went to lunch here with a client and our meals were first class; we both had seafood - fish and lobster. The business-person's special. Service was great, as usual and attentive. Even the owner stopped by to say hello. We were at the Chef's Table watching it all happen (a great perch).

Thanks Artisans for making our business lunch a success. This virus thing will pass; hang in there.

Friday night was Jazz night at Artisans. Along with the generally romantic setting and wonderful food it makes for a great date night. My wife had redfish that was spectacular and I had the cobia - a fish you don't find everywhere. It was seared crispy on the outside and moist on the inside with a fantastic mustard sauce. The house made desserts, full bar and excellent wine list completes the picture. Great place for a special occasion or date.

Great food (redfish and scallops) and attentive service. The seating for two near the front of the restaurant is not my favorite as its difficult to get in and out of the seating. This was made more difficult this night when they placed a couple in the next table despite the fact the restaurant was not crowded. Bottom line great restaurant.

Artisans continues to impress with their incredible cuisine, attention to detail, and expert service. We eat here often, and it always is a wonderful, pleasurable experience. I highly recommend this place for business lunches, as well as intimate dinners. Jack and his crew are worthy of the praise they have received. Bravo!
