    Umimpressive

    As a cheese lover, i expected a lot more, even if it was restaurant week. it was just average, barely. i've definatly had much better salmon. the mac and cheese (we ordered off the fixed menu) was pretty good, but the rest of the food was unbalanced. example: starter was oversalted while entree had almost no taste, pershaps my taste buds stopped working after the first course. will not be returning.

    Do not go for the fondue

    Even though the atmosphere of the restaurant is very nice, the service is slow and the food below average. We had a cold cheese soup they called fondue. However, the taste was poor and the cook used water instead of wine. Not recommendable.

    Excellent food!

    The food was amazing...the absolute best cheesecake and french onion soup I've ever tasted. The tables are really close together and it was a little loud, but it didn't really take away from the great taste of the food. if you are looking for a quiet, calm, romantic dinner, this is probably not the best place, but if you want an amazing food experience with people who appreciate good cheese, check it out!

    Good food, atmosphere, poor service

    We went for a lunch - the restaurant was uncrowded (this was the holiday weekend). Food was spectacularly good, though the waiter and service staff couldn't seem to get the order right and even completed. Thankfully the serving sizes were so generous that sharing was easy and didn't leave anyone hungry (We split 3 meals amongst 4 of us since we ran out of time and couldn't wait for them to fix the 4th party member's meal). The restaurant offered us free dessert, which was a nice gesture, making me think this was a one off occurrence. I would return again, thinking this place is generally good for service, though I have no idea if this is the case. The food is good enough that it is worth a second try.

    Disappointment

    Ate here last week because of the good reviews and proximity to my hotel. I had a reservation so did not have to wait, but they sat me in a horrible table. One of my biggest pet peeves about restaurants is that they give single diners the worst tables. Anyway, I had a glass of wine and ordered the French onion soup and the steak frites. The soup was very good and the steak frites very disappointing. The meat was undercooked- I ordered medium and it came out rare. There was such a small amount off meat it didn't seem worth it to send it back. Considering there were a ton of waiters and back waiters buzzing around the service was not that good. The space is nice and as soon as you walk in you can smell the cheese which was kind of fun.

    Great food

    I happen to be a fan of this restaurant. It is in my neighborhood and I go there often. Food & service are always excellent. Creative dishes. It's a little noisy, but that's ok with me: it is a bistro.

    Cassoulet and cacophony

    We have been to Artisinal over 10 times recently, and each time I look forward to it. From the moment Michael (the Maitre d') greets you at the door, you know you will be treated to a special evening of hospitality and accommodation. I wish the restaurant industry would clone him. The food is consistently terrific. I even enjoy the noise level--it is a brasserie.. isn't it?
