    Disappointing Lunch

    This was my first time at Artisanal and I am a regular at Les Halles so I was interested to check out the neighborhood competition. It started off good with the Swiss Cheese fondue which was tasty but it actually didnt taste at all like swiss cheese (there was definitely some sort of strong alcohol in it!). After the cheese it all went down hill. I ordered the Lamb sandwich with goats cheese - the sandwich was soggy and there was hardly any goats cheese on it - the accompanying chips were stale and the limp salad wasnt exactly appetizing. My other colleague ordered the steak which was tasty but you cant exactly go wrong with a steak at $38.00! And our guest had another soggy sandwich which she barely touched. For dessert we ordered Creme Brulee which was served cold - personally I like mine warm so was disappointed yet again. It was freezing and really noisy in the restaurant and I ordered two coffees which were also cold! For a total of $160.00 incl Tip for three people for lunch with no wine it was very expensive considering the quality of the food. I wont be revisiting this French Fare restaurant again!

    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!
