Overall very disappointing. Food had zero heart, service was TERRIBLE. Sadly this place has gone the way of line cooks tossing food on a plate that is made it large batches—or so it tasted like. One of our salads was drenched in dressing the other had brown lettuce and almost no dressing. Fish was underwhelming and the short rib was marginal at best; it was served with some sort of overcooked greens (kale or collard?) and undercooked ravioli (trust me I know what al dente should feel like) that tasted like a lemon and plastic goat cheese had a baby.

On the plus side the host/ manager who greeted us was very friendly, and the lobster bisque was decent.

First time visit to this restaurant - - for an anniversary. On a Monday night.....things were pretty slow all the way around; perfect for an anniversary dinner. Service was excellent, the food was exceptional. Enjoyed one of the tasting menus and found each serving to be both creative and delicious. IMHO - - a "gem" of a place - - with a specialty in French cuisine.

This restaurant was a 10+. Among our group of 7 we ordered lamb, veal chop and steak/lobster dinners- all excellent. Bread was piping hot, cocktails and wine were served promptly and a great choice of desserts. Give Artesians a try you won’t be disappointed

Love this place! Have been there several times. Food is amazing! Love the layout of the restaurant as well. Has a chef's counter you can sit at and watch them cook and prep the food.
they have booths, low tables, high top tables, comfy couch-like seating. Something for everyone!

Artisans never disappoints, whether for lunch or dinner. This was my second time coming for dinner. (I've been tons of times for lunch.) The menu is pretty scary at first glance (looks very French). But it was good when I overlooked the words I didn't understand. I had a surf and turf dish and lobster bisque. Magnifique. My date had the fish; he enjoyed it. Grace was awesomesauce. I always recommend.

While we have been here several times and loved it, we had some difficulty this time. The sauce on the lamb was very pungent, the one who ordered it ended up scraping it off and eating around the sauce. Another in our party did not like the wild boar. The waitress as wonderful about it, handled it with class.

We did the 6 course tasting with the wine pairing. Every course was absolutely wonderful, with the foi gras and the scallop dishes standing out the most. The wine pairing was absolutely excellent with only one of the wines being good and the rest fantastic. This may been a higher dining experience but the setting is a little more casual. Only gripe was the table behind us was absolutely obnoxious.

When we arrived, we were told there was only seating at the bar or high tables - after protesting, we were seated at a bench table. The seating on the bench side was very soft , uncomfortable and full of pillows. The food was not quality for the price and my husband was dismissed by the waitress when he asked why the wild boar was so tough.
