    We went for the Restaurant Week Menu. And we almost ordered all the courses on the menu (except for the desserts). I like the chicken breast and ribeye steak. Overall we think the food is average, but the service and ambiance is good.

    It's a nice French restaurant, with traditional fare. It's not quite 5 stars from me, the food was good and it is a nice restuarant but is it the best French restuarant in Houston, did it wow/ impress, not yet.

    We decided to come here for Houston Restaurant Weeks (HRW), and I made a reservation through open table. We were seated and provided the menu clipboard - no HRW menu included. We scanned the regular menu, made cocktail orders, and asked the waitress about the HRW menu. Her first question was “Did you state in your reservation that you were going to do HRW?” We said no because we were not aware that was a necessity, and I didn’t see anywhere that it specifically said to do so when making the reservation. She responded saying to let her go talk to the host, came back with HRW menus, but also said, “Next time you make a reservation, remember to put in the notes that you are coming for HRW.” Okay, but why? To me that seems like the restaurant doesn’t actually want to participate or promote being a part of HRW if they don’t automatically provide the menu with their other menus, they mentioned nothing about it when going over the other menus, and we felt a bit ridiculed about how it was handled when we did ask about it. Aside from that, service and food - service was fine, everyone was nice and checked on us enough without being too bothersome. The food really wasn’t as good as we expected. First courses were fine (mushroom salad and corn chowder); second courses weren’t that great (we’ve had much better sea bass at other places, the trout was fine, but the saffron salmon patty that came with the trout didn’t taste fresh to us); third courses were fine too (crème brûlée and pistachio cheesecake). The bar does make a good old fashioned. Overall, and obviously based on our personal taste and preferences, but for the cost of the food (and the small ordeal about the HRW menu), we weren’t impressed with the outcome.

    Two adults with three teenage boys, early evening HRW dinner. We were seated and presented the regular menu even though I had clearly mentioned the HRW menu in the reservation. We then heard about the T-shirts on two of the boys. Big no-no, but OK this time...lol. bread service: rather poor; a warm, napkin-wrapped white boule to be unwrapped and torn so that the crumb gets crushed. weird. appetizers: no one tried the corn, one had the mushroom and pronounced it quite good, two had the seafood gratin. It was delicious, as it should be (note the $14 upcharge) but served with no croutons or any sort of toasted bread. The boule was far too soft to accompany this dish. Really, Jacques, you know better! On to the porc rillettes. Absolutely TERRIBLE. Firstly, not really rillettes at al, rather two sliced of a sort of gelatin? mold and secondly, not soft or spreadable. Really Jacques, you know better. The mains: Two had the tenderloin ($18 upcharge). Top notch beef, expertly prepared. One had the duck leg, again very good. Two of us, including me had the lamb shank. It was honestly the best I've ever had in my long life. Just astounding - melting texture, wonderful seasoning and browning and Oh, the sauce...I could go on but just try this dish - It is a revelation! Oh yeah, polenta was perfect but the sprouts were essentially raw and inedible. Who cares? The desserts: Crème Brulee was the best of the bunch. Pistachio cheese cake - meh. The profiteroles were a joke, the three microscopic (about 1.5" diameter) leathery shells sitting on a huge plate - I wish I had taken a picture. Excellent bottle of HRW Bordeaux red @ $60. $533 all in for five. Clearly an uneven experience, but all in all we enjoyed our dinner.

    A friend of mine and I began HRW on 8/1 with an outstanding dinner at Artisans. We also enjoyed the HRW wine special, a 2019 Chateau Lalande, which was recommend by the sommelier, Rafael, which was a very good, full-bodied Left Bank Bordeaux, priced at cost, which was an incredible value. Our server, Henri, helped us with our order, because everything on the HRW menu sounded good. I started with the pork rillette, which was served in a similar style as pate campagne with cornichons, Dijon, and an onion jam. For the entree, I enjoyed the pan-seared almond-flour crusted trout. Both were delicious. My friend raved about her corn chowder and braised lamb shank (which was huge!). The profiteroles were good but not great, but the creme brulee was perfect! Wonderful service and fantastic, authentic French food!

    The 6 course menu was pretty disappointing, also expected better timing on serving, the lady that was singing it was almost imposible to listen to. At 10:00 pm, I know is closing time but at least you should wait for customers to leave before starting emptying trash cans in front of them. Not returning.

    Wonderful evening out! Hubby and I celebrated our 48th anniversary with the six course tasting menu and our very favorite lobster bisque (best we’ve had anywhere with our world travel). Every course was well done and well presented. The wine pairings were excellent as well. This is a gem hidden in plain sight!

    Overall it was an outstanding experience. I wish you could give half stars, because it was so close to hitting every mark. We did the tasting menu, and while every dish was excellent, not everyone was a “wow that’s the best thing ever” most were incredible, some were very good. Service was excellent, ambiance was great and the noise was good. I enjoyed that one was able to look into the kitchen from every seat in the house, which was efficient and quiet as well. Overall, this is a great splurge for a meal, it’s a little pricey, but for a place that does a tasting menu (there are not a lot in Houston) it was well worth it. Great job!

    We visited on Bastille Day and enjoyed their prix fixe menu for what I recall as 7 courses and wine. Great service and great food - the standouts were the Beef bourguignon and ahi tuna dishes, both of which blew us away. Great service and everyone on staff was attentive and wanted to make sure we had a great experience (as they did with all the diners). I look forward to our next experience here already!

    Food was flavorful but service was a little lacking so dishes were lukewarm when they came out. Two of us got the tasting and there was a solid 20 minutes between the first and second courses, and second and third courses. The third person at our table got their entree between the tasting’s first and second course so they finished by the end of the of the second course so that left a. It to be desired. It wasn’t a particularly busy night, the place was about half full. We’ve been before with better service so honestly we were expecting more, especially since we noted it was a birthday.

    This was our first time at Artisans but it will not be our last! We loved everything about our three-course lunch. The salads were delicious and fresh. The tenderloin was one of the best steaks we have had. The chocolate mousse and the bread pudding were AMAZING! Even more, the ambiance of the place is lovely and definitely reminds you of Paris. We had the delightful experience of chatting with both Gregory, the manager, and Chef Jacque! They were both wonderful and definitely made us feel special!
