My husband and I had a double birthday and wedding anniversary to celebrate and went here for dinner. The food was amazing. I am vegetarian and enjoyed the assiette vegeterienne. Excellent wine list. Will be back!

My favorite restaurant in Houston. You’ll love what Chef Jacques Fox has created from every aspect. There’s a reason he was just nighted by the French government. You’ll never meet someone more French and more Texas than Chef Jacques! Bon Appetit!

Always have fun at Artisan's on New Years Eve & the food did not disappoint, it was absolutely delicious! However service was poor & at times we felt forgotten. Waited ages for several of our courses & had to ask a passing hostess for our food. Very poor for such a good restaurant.

When we arrived we had to insist for a table for 2 in the main restaurant & yes we had booked weeks in advance. They kept saying it was at the chefs table or in the room with the jazz band. Had no tables for 2 elsewhere. Eventually after we refused this offer several times they separated a table for 4 into 2 tables for 2. So things did not have a good start. It was a very disappointing even apart from the food.

Food was delivered in small portions - unrelated with the asking price. The Sea Bass was prepared in advance ... it was so dry and had a horrible taste (+ plus very small portion). Salad was ok but in very small quantity.
Wines, no pre tasting for the regular wines listed. The foie gras listed at 10 dollars extra was so small that i think it is a real joke. French restaurants are generous with their specialties. I consider myself a good French cook (40 years experience) and the real French restaurants are by far another spirit concerning portions and quality of cooking. You can always improve. Try it with the real French approach. Good luck.

Staff and valet mostly unmasked which was tone deaf as Omnicron cases rise. Food nice but pace a little too fast for 4 course preset.

Awful dining experience for their Christmas Eve menu - despite visiting twice before, won’t be going back. The food was entirely bland and unseasoned (soggy asparagus and tasteless fennel for example) just wholly underwhelming. Many of our dishes went back to the kitchen almost full as food was just unpleasant. Mixed our wine with someone else’s by pouring one into the other, not helped because you can’t keep your own wine bottle at your table. Four courses rushed through in less than an hour must be a world record for getting guests out the door.

Overpriced for what it is; there are plenty of other better dining options in Houston.

Dinner near the open chef’s kitchen. Service was relaxed, yet very efficient and spot on. Perfect wine pairings. Atmosphere- was good- could have been warmer/cozier. Dinner also good- but not as good a value as I had hoped. I will return- sit in salon on next trip.

Wonderful date night out to spend time with the wife and have the child at home with a sitter.

Only criticism is the food causing us stomachaches later in the night and following morning.

My husband surprised me with a date night here and what a surprise! A classy gem in midtown with old-school Euro charm and razzle-dazzle flair -- Tasting Table! Wow factor! We had personal visits from the owner/chef and his lovely director, Suzanne. The bar service outstanding - before we could even think of the next drink, the young lady was there to take our order or make a suggestion. I recommend the scallops, beet salad, simple salad with housemade vinaigrette or one of the best bouillabaisses I've ever had.

The food was impeccable. I was a bit disappointed with the seating. We were seated too close to the table next to us and it was fairly loud. Definitely not a fan of the Christmas music either. I will definitely go back but maybe not on a weekend night in December.
