                                    Early dinner for my wife and I before seeing Jersey Boys at the Hobby Center. Valet parking was easy, seated quickly, checked my suit coat. My wife chose a corner, window booth. Service was very good, restaurant was well-staffed, servers were attentive but not overbearing. My wife ordered an Absolute vodka martini, up and dirty. Bartender delivered it personally, it was the way his mother liked her martini’s so he seemed pleased to make it again for my wife. My wife had a glass of Chardonnay with dinner and I had still water. Her dinner began with lobster bisque and the entree was lobster with asparagus, crab, and risotto. She was very pleased with both. I had escargot to start and veal chop with roasted Brussels Sprout and risotto. Both were very good. For dessert, I had a double espresso and we shared a very small serving of opera cake. From our experience, Artisan appears to be a very good, well run French restaurant.

                                    I like this place, and have had good meals here before. Last night was not the best. My entrecôte, the server’s recommendation, was not a good cut of meat, and only about half of it was edible. For a $54 entree, that’s not a good value. The sauce on it was good, as were the artisans salad and the chocolate dessert. The atmosphere was pleasant, and the service attentive. A good time overall if the meat quality could be improved.

                                    My wife and I had a fantastic time. The picture of the steak tartare online brought us in. Its one of the best steak tartare we've had. The same with the foie gras (and Sauterne). Superb! The mains were scallops and entrecote du bouef (ribeye but done in a way I've never had before), both were unbelievably well prepared and delivered. Raphael (spelling??) was our server and did an excellent job guiding us on our culinary journey. We will definitely be back for the multi-course meal with wine pairings. Truly excellent experience all around.

                                    We had a lovely anniversary dinner at this elegant French restaurant. Beautiful room, good staff and very high quality food prepared deliciously. Expensive, but not excessively so. Artisan’s is a good place for a special meal or event.

                                    Arrived early and table ready for us. Server very prompt for cocktails. Had escargot as appetizer and it did not disappoint😍😍😍😍😍. Wife ordered Chilean Sea Bass with risotto and bok chow: paired with Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc; I had Steak au Poivre with fingerling potatoes and haricot vert paired with Malbec. Both marvelous dishes. Server excellent with suggestions and timing of food. A TRUE GO TO RESTAURANT 😍😍😍😍😍

                                    Celebrated my wife’s birthday and the owner came out and greeted us, and gave my 4 year old a quick tour of the restaurant. Sitting at the bar overlooking the open kitchen was very entertaining.

                                    Our waitress was amazing! The risotto ball was well sauced for my son. Under sauced for me and my niece but cooked beautifully. My son's lobster tail on his chicken entree was absolutely perfect food! Our steaks were a little underseasoned for my taste. It was a wonderful mother's day! Thank you for preparing great food for a reasonable price, in an atmosphere that was relaxing. I will definitely be back.

                                    We were ALL so happy! The way our guest put it “we love trying new places but this was so unexpected!” The Woodlands needs a place like this. There is no doubt that someone in the kitchen works directly with the staff as everybody(especially Lucy)is certainly on board with the service and the menu. Our table was absolutely impressed with the experience last night. To my surprise a nice entertaining JAZZ band started at 6:45 to make dinner even better. Hands down 5 star dining last night. Kudos!!

Our server was very nice, attentive and knowledgeable. The lobster bisque and the ribeye was certainly a highlight for me. And my wife enjoyed the escargot and bread, as well as the Chilean sea bass. We will definitely be back.

                                    Pace of the meal far too slow tonight. There was a banquet and that seemed to slow the whole dining experience. I would say the banquet caused staff to delay on our food. Exacrly after 1 hour we received our appetizer and had just one glass of bubbles left on receiving our main course!. It was a shame as it was a special occasion for us.

                                    The cocktails were well made. The wine list is lengthy and diverse enough to find a wine you will enjoy. I started with the escargot and it was wonderful. My spouse started with a lobster bisque, of which I had a taste and found it be excellent. For the main, my spouse and I split the halibut with risotto and carrots (the fish of the day) and both very much enjoyed it. Our server was attentive and kept us on schedule to depart in time for the opera.

                                    Outstanding, romantic restaurant, great place to celebrate a 25th wedding anniversary! Service was fantastic and the food was outstanding. We both had the 6 Course Tasting Menu which is a bargain at under $100, considering the portions were quite large for a classic French restaurant. I was a bit saddened by the fact there were only about 10 tables occupied on a Tuesday night. On the flip side, it was like having the restaurant all to yourself!

Our server had many great tales to share about the history of some of the dishes, which was a fun addition. Furthermore, I had mentioned that our visit was a special occasion under the reservation. I never know whether or not these requests are payed any attention, however, sure enough were seated at a lovely corner table, and felt very accommodated! This was the extra feature that truly put the experience over the top. Thank you Artisans!!!

                                    Our server was excellent and the food was delicious. Having lived in Europe, I can say the ambiance of this particular French restaurant reminds me of the coziness of those I visited in France, which I really enjoy. We look forward to to visiting again.

                                    One of my favorite places in Houston. Classical French food and other favorites cooked perfectly. Wonderful service from everyone there.

                                    I always said this was my best Houston restaurant but my experience tonight was horrible. The manager Brian added a 25% gratuity to a check for a party of 2 and when we asked our waitress she said it was a mistake. The service was not worth 25% and why didn’t he walk up to us in the restaurant? We left a tip and the manager called my phone when we left to say we left “only a 10% tip” and that he sees we’ve been a few times and didn’t tip as well as they expect so we are no longer welcome in the restaurant. We’ve been going for 3 years and never been this insulted for something we are paying for. Needless to say we would never be back. I have heard that this manager Brian is racist so I am not surprised at the treatment we got. This is easily the best way to lose a customer.

                                    We always enjoy our visits to Artisans. We especially enjoy sitting at the Chef’s table and watching the team work. The food is always amazing!

                                    This place is a real jewel! From the minute we walked in, we were treated like the most important people in the restaurant!! Everything was first class and presentation was professional and efficient. We were fortunate enough to be there on a night with singing. The singer was excellent and the volume was perfect for conversation. We will be back soon.

                                    We had requested the private room behind the kitchen, so our room was quiet. The food was, as usual, very good, although one diner pointed out the lobster bisque was not truly a bisque, but rather a delicious lobster soup, as it was neither thick nor creamy, both traits common to a bisque. (He did enjoy the dish, however.) Our party of six enjoyed a variety of appetizers and entrees, all of which were presented beautifully and tasted every bit as good as they looked. We split three desserts, all of which were, as the French say, magnifique.
