    don't go on Sunday night

    I've always liked Artisanal. Took mom, sister, friend for Sunday dinner early 6:30pm. Seated perpendicular to the windows and mom was cold so I asked our server to check with the maitre'D for a table on the other side. Our server told me it's been cold everywhere in the restuarant and that it would not make a difference- had to ask her 3 times to check with MD. She comes back and says would you follow me - she didn't show me the table first and ask it I did prefer that and I didn't ask. Took us to a table right in front of the entrance to phones/bathrooms. Did not say anything as I was w/my guests. Steak was off, too much salt in the cod/paella, and the onion soup. Chicken good, their tart tatan is SO YUMMY! Sunday and Monday are the slowest days in the restuarant biz but thought Artisanal would be able to carry it off esp. b/c they have Sunday brunch. My first Sunday there, won't do it again, had to quell feelings of disappointment esp. as I had invited my family and they had never been there. Too bad.

    Loud, stinky, poor service, so-so food

    Even though it's all about the cheese, you'd think they'd figured out by now that the sense of smell is a key factor in taste - so strong was the overall stench in the room, it's hard to tell if the food was better than it seemed - because it seemed only so-so and, like so many Hollywood movies, forgettable once you're walking down the block afterwards. A little ventilation would go a long way, and while they're at it, put in some sound absorbers - it was very hard to have a proper conversation. We sat at the banquette wall and tables were so jammed in that each time anyone in the row of tables had to get up, everyone had to shift their table over a bit. Very distracting. On a positive note: each of the wines we had was delicious. Not enough so to warrant a return trip, however. Real French brasseries are nothing like this pretentious place. Easy to tell right off that it's an American's idea of a French restaurant. T'ant pis!

    Stick with the cheese

    We went to Artisanal for Sunday lunch. It was noisy and crowded. The cheese fondue was superb,as was the onion soup. Everything else was fine, but nothing special. If cheese is your thing, go for it. Stay away from the egg dishes. Perfect late night spot for a cheese flight or fondue.

    Recommended

    This is a go the place is excellent. Recommend the fois gras with a glass of Sauterne as aptz and the artisanal blend with the Rothschild red Bordeaux. Had creme brulee for desert; they put orange in there interesting choice, but quite good. With a generous tip I paid 140 for 2 people (we shared everything)

    Unbelievable experience!

    The tasting menu with wine selection is expensive, but worth every penny. The food was delicious and creative and the wine pairings were fabulously inventive. Do it - you won't regret it!

    Pretty good

    Everything we ordered was top notch. Delicious! Cant say one thing bad about it. There are better restuarants out there however.
