We had a wonderful time as always- staff is attentive, friendly, and courteous and the outdoor terrace is spaced out beautifully with heat lamps and beautiful flowers and lights. Food was excellent as always. Thank you
Unreasonable to have two-person tables all so far away from Heat lamps with no other protection from cold. Slow service in 40 degree weather tainted a beautiful setting and delicious meal.
The atmosphere was what puts this restaurant over the top! Great food and service. But the outdoor garden festive atmosphere was especially appreciated during this time of Covid.
SERVICE CONTINUES TO BE AN ISSUE AT THIS RESTAURANT. WE WAITED OVER 20 MINUTES TO ORDER OUR DRINKS! HAD TO ASK TWICE FOR A BUS BOY TO FIND OUR WAITRESS.
Terrific: most enjoyable!
Great spot for couples or a group. My second time there this week. Staff was very nice but service was a bit slow for a place of this caliber.
Always happy to dine at Artisan. Outdoor dining was the perfect setting, food delicious and well presented. Staff is always top notch.
What a disappointment . . . the service was indifferent at best, and the food was thoroughly uninspired. As long time customers of Artisan, we are so disappointed to see how their standards of quality have dropped. Given the pandemic, I hesitate to give a restaurant a bad review, but in this case it is greatly justified.
Nice ambience, food was good but the service was not.
The setting is beautiful—plenty of distance btwn tables so we felt comfortable. Would recommend it for the patio and scene only. Service was bad-long waits for everything and awkward service when they came around, even from the manager. Hostess was nice and accommodated our special request for a spot where we could have our stroller at the table and not be in the way.
Food was mediocre. The only good dish was one of our desserts. Couldn’t even eat half my entree (fish and chips) as the fish was soggy and unappealing. Expensive for mediocre food and service.
Would I go back? No. Setting alone wasn’t worth it to me for the 30 mon drive from lower fairfield county.
It took forever to get seated even though there were many many tables open. Seemed like they didn’t have our reservation
Such a beautiful setting, can’t go wrong for a date night
Artisan is in a beautiful setting! They were extremely busy and the service is the sacrifice for being popular. We had to grab anyone who walked by our table to ask for any service, including just getting some water.
We had to go find the hostess to get seated. They shouldn't take reservations if it's not going to mean anything when you show up. We waited 1/2 hour for a seat.
Artisan is a good restaurant but don't go if you don't like to wait.
The food and service were outstanding! It felt really safe and all the tables were adequately spaced. The outdoor dining area is beautifully decorated. Gorgeous lighting and cozy outdoor heaters.
Food was delicious, atmosphere was inviting and we felt like we were on vacation. We sat in the courtyard which was sunny but a bit windy. Service was excellent.
We have always liked the restaurant but we were disturbed at the pricing, which has gone up considerably; even more disturbing to find out that our cocktails had an added $2 per drink for upping the amoung of vodka used, without our knowledge or order.
The wait server and the food were very good for 3 of us, not quite so for the 4th person.
I would recommend Artisan to a friend, as shown below, but with some qualifications as to what to order and how to order drinks.
Really a fantastic atmosphere and location for couples. High end but their pris fixed smoothies out the costs.
Love it! Seafood chowder a real winner.
We have been at the Artisan many times and this was one of the worst experiences we have ever had there! There was simply no service. We waited to have our cocktail order taken over 30 minutes! Emmanuel who knows us from another establishment we frequent, finally took our order. There was an event and we thought there were no waiters in site. We had an African American busboy who could not have been nicer but our waiter was a no show. Food also was not as good as it usually is. Overall, very disappointing.
10/10! Love the outdoor patio. Food and drinks were fantastic.
Excellent lunch with my daughter celebrating her 30th birthday- they took such good care of us! My daughter’s rehearsal dinner was there- also excellent!!
Service was very attentive. There is so much detail in each dish. Everything was delicious! Perfect ambience for an anniversary celebration.
Excellent food and service. They’ve expanded outdoor dining and its lovely with lights strung amongst the trees.
Secondary wait staff was a bit inexperienced. But the overall experience was very pleasant.
Nice ambiance and the food was very good. Staff in masks and decent spacing between tables outdoors.
We had such terrible service - no one checked on us, we waiting nearly 20 minutes to pay and had to flag down several waiters. I honestly don’t even know which one was ours. Additionally I wanted to take home half of my meal, but so many bees landed on it while we were waiting for someone to wrap it up, that I just had them toss it. The food was good but the service was so bad we will not be back.
Beautiful setting and amazing food! Service was excellent as well.
Large outdoor dining courtyard makes for a comfortably spaced dining environment. Delicious meal.
Great value for lunch prices fixe. Great job setting up the outdoor dining.
I hate it when I have to search for my server. The service has been spotty the last few times, but then again, Covid !
Lovely setting for meeting friends and celebrations
My parents came in from out of town and couldn't stop raving about the whole experience! They really enjoyed dining outside with the lighting and atmosphere. The food was excellent as was the service! Would definitely go again.
Outdoor dining was nicely handled in these difficult Covid times. The staff is well-trained. Food was amazing in reasonable portions.
We had a wonderful meal! It's a beautiful restaurant, the food was incredible and we were warm! Thank you, Artisan
It was a wonderful evening. Food and drinks are outstanding. Service was very good and we had a terrific evening. Something for everyone and really cannot day enough about this great restaurant. It will not disappoint.
Sat outside beautiful day service slow but it was packed. Staff mostly very professional. Always a favorite
We went here for my buddies birthday dinner. From the moment we arrived, the service was utterly terrible. We had an 815 reservation, it took nearly an hour to even be asked for our dinner order. We couldnt find a server multiple times for drink refills, I can go on but I’ll get to the point. When it was all said and done we ended up leaving close to 11 pm. We were totally neglected for no reason and the food ended up being mediocre. The only regret I have bigger than going to Artisan, was leaving a 20% tip.
We had good time for my friend's BD lunch, and the weather was nice to have lunch outside.
Great food, beautiful atmosphere. Service a little mediocre but overall a wonderful restaurant.
