Artisans is my favorite "go to" downtown restaurant. The food is delicious and beautiful. I love watching the kitchen staff work - it's choreography.

We had a nice quiet table for 2 in the front room. Great wine list. The St. Emilion Bordeaux was outstanding and priced very fairly. Very attentive and polite staff. Food was excellent. Authentic bouillabaisse. We will go back.

Ordered the 3-course business meal. The salads were nice and fresh. Loved the canoed bacon! Both the beef tenderloin and the Chilean Sea Bass w Risotto mains were wonderful -properly cooked and flavorful! The strawberry mouse cakes for dessert were just right. Light enough to not wait you down, yet rich enough to satisfy the sweet tooth! Great value at $29!!

I ordered the Caviar Plate on the menu and was told later, they didn't have any Caviar tonight.
Very disappointed, as that was all I wanted, so I had a bite or two off my husband's plate. If Caviar isn't ordered enough to keep it on hand, take it off of the menu.

We had been there once before and enjoyed our meal although it was overpriced last time as well. The prices are very high. My red fish tasted fishy, but the sides were delicious. My husband asked for the tuna appetizer to be doubled so he could have it as a main course, and the portion was still skimpy besides costing $44. The bread they serve was excellent, but that did not make up for a very average main course. Their prices were so out of bounds compared with similar restaurants, and we eat out a lot. Disappointing as it is very convenient to the theater district as well as quiet so you can talk with your dinner companions.

Celebrating our son’s birthday, we ordered the 7-course prix fix dinner. The menu was great, and the wine pairing was really nice! Chef also introduced us to the baked Alaska and ice wine - they were both marvelous!!! Well worth trying them.

Christmas eve dinner featured all the chef's top dishes including butter poached lobster, fois gras, and venison. The dessert chef created the best buche Noel I have ever had. All courses were paced just right. We enjoyed the chef counter seating with its' view of the bustling kitchen.
Definitely a favorite of ours.
