So we were at Artisans to celebrate St. Valentines Day and they were well prepared. We were seated in a booth as requested when the res was made. Nice white linen table cloth and napkins, candles burning bright and rose petals on the table. Brandon, our waiter, was attentive without being intrusive as we were in no hurry. Beverages, salads, entrees and desserts were all prepared to our liking and absolutely delicious. Artisans is one of our top 4 restaurants and the only one in Toms River.

Good meal, had a nice early bird special that was tasty and filling. Price was very good.. Waitress, Katie, did an excellent job of handling a group of 7 with care and pressionalism. Prompt service and meal was delivered quickly.

Let me first say that we LOVE Artisan's on any other night. We typically go for the prix fix menu and the meals are about $15.95ish - a great value for great food. NYE was a pretty similar menu but the prices were $52.95 for the same food which was not up to their usual par. The service was great but the price gouging was something we didn't care for.

We had a 6 pm res and were seated in a comfortable booth within minutes of arriving. Glad we had the res because the restaurant was quite busy. Our waiter, Brandon, came to the booth and took our drink orders which arrived within minutes and were a nice size and well prepared. My wife ordered the " peppermint kiss" and thoroughly enjoyed it. He then took our salad order, we mentioned no hurry as we would enjoy our drinks. Salads arrived within a few minutes and were quite large and delicious. We then placed our dinner order, my wife opted for the filet mignon and I had the short ribs of beef. These were prepared to our liking and the presentation was very nice. Finally we ordered our desserts and drinks, this time my wife ordered a "naughty elf" which she thoroughly enjoyed along with vanilla ice cream. I opted for the tres leche which was fresh and tasty along with a martini. All in all, an excellent New Years Eve dinner.

The table we were seated at was getting a draft from the front door. Or waiter and other staff figured out a solution that made us write happy. The food was very good (as usual), and we were very happy with it experience.

Was seated quickly and the staff was very nice. I ordered the Salmon and is was overcooked and quite dry. After the entrée I decided to order the Tiramisu. What a mistake….I took a spoonful of my Tiramisu and if I had my eyes closed I would've thought I was eating Blue Cheese. This Tiramisu was bad, old and when I asked my friend, it was clear this was moldy. Completely unacceptable! I would never dine at this restaurant again. I travel a lot for work and eat out in many, many restaurants. I have never encountered this type of oversight on food.

It was out first time and we were very happy with service , location and the food was delicious .
Our only improvement would be that our table not be as drafty , and therefore a little warmer.

Waiter didn’t acknowledge our table for over 15 minutes after arriving. Food was ok, nothing special for prices charged. Would go there again for a drink but not a meal.

We ate at the bar and our was great. Blue cheese burger for me and brats for my husband. Burger was prepared exactly the way I like it. Brat dinner very good and large enough for lunch next day. Josh was tending bar and as always he was very attentive and just a nice guy.

It was our 1st time here with family and friends. We liked the look and layout very much and was a lot bigger inside then I thought it would be. The staff was great and the food was very good. We'll return there again for more food and fun times. Mike

First time we did not have a good experience here. Waited 25 minutes for our food. Entrees did not include even a salad, and we were not asked if we wanted one. No water on the table. Food was just OK. Overall we were "under whelmed". Maybe next time.

We enjoyed our meal at Artisan's. The portions were more than ample (brought about half home), cocktails were well made, service was excellent, and the food was well prepared.

Had lunch with 7 friends at Artisans. Three of us arrived 10 minutes early but they set the table up immediately to seat us. Our waiter was patient while we awaited the late arrival of one guest. Our food was hot and quie good. Since we hadn’t seen in each other in months we spent a lot of time talking and laughing. We were there at least 2 hours and we never felt rushed. It was a great experience.

Restaurant was just average with a very limited menu. Specials were pricey for this kind of dining. Also appetizers were very small portions. At least food was somewhat tasty

We had not been to Artisan's in a while. We were really pleasantly surprised. Our server Katie was super. Very attentive, helpful and provided us with some great suggestions and insights into the menu and the in house beer selections. We had a sampler of the beer and really enjoyed the seasonal offering. Burgers were great, tasty and cooked to our preferred temperature. Overall an excellent experience and we will be back. Thanks to Katie for being a great ambassador for Artisan's.

We went to this restaurant for lunch thinking it was an Italian restaurant. It's not. Pizza, soup, salad and sandwiches were the fare but the food was delicious and plentiful. Big selection of wine and beer.

Although the people were very nice and all, the food choices were seriously limited. There was absolutely no seafood of any kind served at the brunch and the desserts were small, few and not good. The best part was the eggs made to order.
