    Delicious food and not as bad service as I expected.

    Went there for lunch during the restaurant week and was prepared to get bad service as I had read the previous reviews. Must say that was pleasantly surprised. The food was really delicious and well prepared and the service we got wasn`t any worse than in any other restaurant in NY. Ok, the front desk girl wasn`t very friendly, but our overall experience was very pleasant. Would go again.

    poor service

    The food is good and Artisanal would be a great place if it weren't for the poor service. Frankly it is surprising. My guess is they get away with it--given that most of the other patrons appeared to be from out of town.

    Poor service - not worth it

    The worst service we have ever had. If this place is trying to channel Paris, it has it all wrong. Parisian restaurateurs, while often formal and serious, would never roll their eyes the way our sorry excuse for a waitress did. We sat for over an HOUR without bread, and had to ask for it three times before she did us the favor of bringing it, while letting us know the whole time what an inconvenience it was. The food is on par with that served in other French bistros in the city, but the abysmal service will keep us away.

    My favorite Paris-style bistro in NYC

    I happen to love cheese, especially creamy, oozy room-temperature pungent French cheeses. With that in mind I went to Artisanal to have dinner centered around cheese. I was not disappointed. My steamed mussels appetizer had an outstanding broth of white wine, garlic and parsley. Flavors were there. Despite an extensive array of main course choices (from steaks to fish to seafood) I stayed with my aim and chose cheese for a main course. I had a large platter of the following 4 cheeses: Epoisses, Pierre Robert, Brillat Savarin and Sainte-Maure. I had them served with razor-thin, lightly salted crackers (so as not to overpower the cheeses’ flavor) and a Bordeaux Grand Cru red wine. Finally for desserts, although all are delicious, I hesitated a lot between those two I consider their best: the cheesecake and the tart tatin. I went with the tart tatin and it was the best of its kind I ever had with its ultra-thin, barely visible cheddar crust tucked below thick slices of apples perfectly caramelized, not drowned in butter, sweetened just right, very delicate and melting in my mouth. It was a dessert off the charts. That dinner did really hit the spot. Last note on the service: I will readily admit that our waitress did not smile enough. That said, she was a real pro and answered very knowledgeably all questions we had on the menu and gave good recommendations and suggestions. Overall whether you opt for an all-bistro menu or a cheese-entered one I definitely and highly recommend this place.

    Never lets me down

    I ate at Artisanal last night for dinner and had a wonderful meal. It was so good I had to write this review to inform people that are complaining about the restaurant that they need to try it again. Maybe the wrong time to go is on Valentines Day when things anywhere get out of hand. This restaurant has a solid record of very good consistent food and service. My husband and I have been eating there since it opened. Brunch,lunch dinner they manage to do it correctly. Last night I had the seasonal Lotte (monkfish) and it was amazing. I highly recommend it

    Food is excellent

    I went here for valentine's day this year and absolutely loved the food. We had a Valentine's Day pri fixe menu which was $65 a person. This included an appetizer, entree, and dessert. I had the french onion soup, chicken under a brick, and my boyfriend and I shared the chocolate fondue. I have not one complaint about the food - and the chicken was one of the best chicken dishes I have had. It was cramped - we were 6 inches from the table next to us, so it wasn't the best ambiance for a romantic dinner. The server was pretty slow, however she has a lot of tables. Our fondue was problematic - the breeze of everyone walking by kept blowing out the flame, so I cannot say it was to die for. However, I would go back just based on the food alone. Be prepared though - we were there for 3 hours in total

    Worst Service in Town

    The wait staff is a stunning mixture of incompetence. We sat at our table for 20 minutes for our drink order. When our cheese plate finally came out, we had no bread. We asked another waiter about our order because our waiter was nowhere to be found, another rude waiter simply replied - I'm not your waiter. When our waiter finally resurfaced, we overheard both waiters mocking us right in front of us. At this point, we had to confront the manager who comped part of our meal. If you want to be treated poorly, ignored and suffer through your meal, then my all means - go here. However, if you want a semblance of service, you're better off going with a fast food joint.
