Once again, we had a wonderful dinner at Artisan's. Excellent food (vollaile et son homard and the vegetarian plate). Excellent wine (Domaine de Cristia, Chateauneuf du Pape). Excellent service (thanks, Brian). And excellent ambiance. Thanks again to Jacques and his crew.
Went there with my wife for our anniversary. Had a great time. Amazing food and staff.
This was a birthday dinner for my boyfriend and it was spectacular!! The service was phenomenal and so was the food! I would highly recommend this fine establishment!
Excellent French food of highest quality ingredients and preparation. Limited but diverse business lunch 3 course menu offered. Attentive service and management.
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.
Fantastic service and food. The setting was beautiful and I would love to go back.
Always a treat to dine at Artisans.
Great food, several outstanding selections, and a nice, solid wine list.
Locally owned and operated. The food is always exceptional and the staff is very friendly.
We loved our experience at the Artisan! The food was so tasteful and the service was excellent!
We enjoyed our meals and the music a lot. This was our first visit, but we'll definitely not our last!
Always great to be at Artisan I have being coming here for the last 5 years never disappoint
Always fantastic. 3 course lunch specials are varied and full of flavor.
Love this place! The food is always fresh and beautifully presented!
Perfect! Dessert was amazing!
Always a fun experience. The staff works hard to please, they are attentive and knowledgeable. The food is always excellent
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].
Enjoyed the three course lunch special. The cauliflower soup was exceptional.
The same great food, wine list and service.
Glad to be back
Everything was amazing! We tried the tasting menus and both our choices were so yummy! The restaurant decor was perfect and our waiter was excellent! We will definitely be going back!
Awesome visit as always! And the live music in Friday’s was a welcome surprise!
Vibes, food, and wine, everything was so perfect.
I went for a Friday lunch with my couple and we had a very nice, tasty and romantic experience.
Inadequate social distancing at chef’s bar
As always the wine pairing is excellent. The staff is observing the social distancing protocols.
Had 8 course menu with wine pairings, everything was excellent
Outstanding job of keeping tables separated and making us comfortable that our health was important. Service and good was excellent. We had a fun evening. Was great to go out!
Great Friday evening dinner with diverse menu, attentive service and wonderful courses. Fish dishes were great. Felt at ease with good attention to CDS guidelines.
Delicious and beautifully presented cuisine! Quiet due to distancing mandate. Service was attentive but not intrusive. We will definitely return!
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!
Food and service were both outstanding. Did the course tasting menu and it was every selection was superb.
Ordered a great bottle of wine to accompany my families dinner choices. Caviar, Foie Gras, Chilean Sea Bass and the seven course tasting menu were ordered. Service and food was fantastic and will be going again.
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 great service and food after so long not being able to enjoy Artisans. They implemented all the distancing and protection requirements while still delivering a great experience!
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.
Chef’s menu was awesome!
Very creative courses to go with the selection of Chateau Palmer, Bordeaux
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.
