    I'm still full!

    I went with 7 friends to Artisanal Friday night for a birthday. It was so good! While 4 of my friends went with the cheese fondue, I opted for the prix fixe, which was a really good value. For $35, I got creamy celery soup, delicious pumpkin & mushroon risotto, and a piece of pumplkin praline cheesecake. While the restaurant was definitely loud, the service was fantastic and we were not rushed out at all.

    Overrated

    I went to Artisenal with some friends yesterday and had such high expectations based on all that I've heard about it! Our waiter did not crack a smile, then he disappeared without telling us that we'd have a different waitress, and she was a less attentive waiter than him. No one ever came over to see how we were or if we needed anything else, etc... The food was not what I expected. The fondue for 6 was 40.00 and we all had to lean over to see if there actually was ANY Fondue in the pot. I've had double the amount for half the price at similar restaurants. Since this is the reason we chose Artisinal (Fondue) we were disappointed. The brunch main courses were very good, all sandwiches and hanger steak, very tasty, still not worth the prices... Dessert was o.k. hot chocolate was rich and creamy, very good. This restaurant did not live up to its reputation. The service was poor,,, and they tacked on an 18% service charge for a party of 4. (the menu says parties of 6 or more get a service charge). I was disappointed.

    Worth another visit

    My bf took me here for our anniversary since I love cheese. We were late for our reservation but they seated us anyway as soon as we arrived. Our waiter was knowledgable. It was quite noisy in there but that wasn't a big concern for us. I enjoyed the fondue we had and would love to try out the other blends they offer. Unfortunetely I filled up on the fondue so I didn't eat much of my entree. But the hanger steak I had was really fabulous. My dessert wasn't up to par. I ordered bisquits and truffles. The bisquits were more like mini muffins. The waiter told me they were going to be cookies. Overall it was a nice looking place w/good food. Next time I'd love to try the flights of wine w/cheese.

    Best Cheese Fondue ever!

    I had the cheese of the day fondue (gouda) and it was absolutely delicious! It came with some chives and mushrooms and it was just great. The only disappointment was the bread - it tasted a little stale. The entrees were awesome as well - I had the fish of the day (sea bass) and it was perfect. Too bad I was too full for dessert but the chocolate fondue sounded pretty good.

    Buy the cheese and then go home and cook

    The cheese was excellent and the variety/quality combo cannot be beat. The mixed plate comes with some decent dried meats as well. The main courses were lackluster at best. The chicken tasted like warmed over fast-food chicken in a moat of tasteless, though colorful, sauce. OK, I know, don't order chicken, but the menu description sounded good and the waiter thought the pork might be a little dry. The risotto was not bad, though the texture a little mushy. Service started very good, but deteriorated quickly as it got later. Having lived in Europe for several years now, it can be hard to get used to being rushed out of a restaurant. My date (European) had to pull her plate out of the waiter's hands three times. He finally gave up and got surly. OK, I know the rules in the US and the need to do three turnovers a night, etc. But, we had a late seating and no one else was going to come. Our total time in the place still was less than an hour and a half.

    Excellent Service...amazing mac & cheese

    Had dinner @ Artisanal w/ several friends last night. Shared the skate and lamb entrees (DELICIOUS!) and the macaroni and cheese is the best I've ever had! The service was EXCELLENT. The food arrived in a timely manner, the waiter was very helpful in making cheese and entree suggestions, and overall, I would definitely recommend this place. In fact, I'm contemplating returning there this weekend just for the Mac and Cheese!

    Noisy, but who needs to talk!

    An exceptional place! Great food, but a little noisy on a Fri night. I must admit, there wasn't much talking! The cheese flights are a great way to try some new things (with or without accompanying wines) our waiter took our knowledge of familiar cheeses and found the samplers that worked perfectly!. David (our waiter) was excellent, he paired our fondue with both a red and white wine based on some of our other wine preferences. Will absolutely go again, and take our most favorite people with us!
