    Tight Seating, Truly Great Food

    I enjoyed my trip to Artisanal a lot. Granted, it was quite crowded (on a Monday of all nights!) but the food was wonderful and the service extremely good. I have a degree in hospitality management and I can honestly tell you that almost everything was done right. They had great food, the waiter was friendly and there (most of the times) when he was needed. The service recovery for a very delayed dessert was done well and the fries are heavenly! (I realize people don't generally go to a place like this for fries but that's part of amazed me about the unbelievable fries.) I would easily recommend this to a friend for dinner. Just to point out that most of the reviews are for lunch; I went for dinner and the service, food, and atmosphere were all great. We got out of there for $300 (or thereabouts) with 2-3 course dinner and wine by the glass for 4.

    Best cheese selection in the city!

    I ordered the prix-fixe dinner (arugula salad, duck confit, and chocolate cake). All three were above average. The real highlight was the flight of cheese that we got. The cheese menu consisted over easily over 500 different types of cheese, all sorted by region, type, and flavor. The waiter was very knowledgable and helpful.

    Great brunch

    What an excellent brunch. the omlette and beignets were outstanding! a little pricey, but absolutely delicious. they did slightly rush out food between courses.

    Delicious brunch...

    Stopped here at 12:30pm on Saturday and was seated immediately. The waiter was a sweetheart; very attentive and polite. Had the brunch (orange crepes, pumpkin risotto, and pomegranate infusion...all delicious!) It was noisy, but the whole atmospere reminded me of the bistos in Paris. A very nice experience...will definitely be back.

    Good atmos, disappointing food

    Made to wait 1/2 hour for our table. Wine, beer both good. Beef was more fat than beef, vegetables were overcooked and it had a cheese sauce which seemed out of place: spoiled the pleasant red wine sauce. Cheesecake was very nice though. Waiter brought the cheque before we had finished the desert, bit rude! Overall, probably a better place to go for lunch/brunch.

    Delicious brunch

    I went with a friend late on a Sunday afternoon and had such a great meal. We started with an assiette du fromage of cheeses reccomended to us by the waiter. They were all wonderful. Then we had the $25 prix fixe brunch menu starting with mimosas. I followed with the soupe du jour (potato leek). While I loved the consistancy (not too creamy, not too watery) it had a strong bacon flavor of which I was not fond. If you like bacon, I imagine you would have loved it. My friend had a chocolate crepe that was worth the trip in itself. By the time our scrambled eggs came we were stuffed but kept on chuggin'. All in all, the service was a great balance b/w hands off and attentive. Great experience if your looking for an expensive, leisurely sunday brunch!

    It is what Is

    Lunch at Artisanal: Fun, hectic, loud and just what a bistro should be. If you are looking for a quiet, romantic dinner dont come here..If you are looking for a smartly decorated, boisterous and faux Parisien atmosphere come to Artisanal..Contrary to many posts here, I found the greeting staff and service very accomodating and pleasant. Although crowded ,we we were seated promptly and our order taken and served nicely. I had the tuna carpaccio appetizer which was fresh and niced sized in its portion. Sauce was a bit astringent but Iiked it. My fiancee had the Mesclun salad which was a bit underdressed. The waiter brought more mustard-vinaigreette dressing which was good. We ordered the Gougeres, small bite sized cheese puffs which are delicious. We then shared the Artisanal Fondue with crudites`, beef tips and bread sides. This was excellent. For mains we both had a hamburger with melted cheddar which was also excellent. Juicy, high quality meat. Frites were delicious; crisp, not oily. Bread was good. Desert was the profiiterole with pistachio ice cream with chocolate sauce which was good. Coffee aklso was good. All in All my impression of Atrtisanal was good. All of the other dishes I saw the other patrons eating looked appetizing and appeared to be nicely presented. Admiitedly, reading other posts, I had a bit of trepidation but we had a nice time and enjoyed the food very much.
