Had dinner here and thought the surroundings were unique and matched the french countryside bistro. Excellent choice of appetizers and soups and salads but disappointed at the variety of entrees, especially that they had run out of haddock as well as an onion soup which was on the daily menu at 7:20pm . Enjoyed a Orange Fennell salad and several... More

A lovely time. Pastry memorable. Salads , fish and chicken appreciated by all. Excellent choices in beers, ciders, and good wine list. Service hit just the right note - knowledgeable, discrete yet friendly. We will be back.

Today is my 5th visit to this wonderful restaurant; and every time I eat here I'm reminded of why I return. This is not a chef that skimps on ingredients or flavor. You can tell that time was taken in the preparation of your meal. This is not a fast-food or franchise eating experience by any means. I will definitely... More

On the edge of downtown and away from some of the bustle, Artisanale is subtle and attractive in a way that is relaxing yet fulfilling. We stopped in for a late lunch and were not disappointed. The place was nearly full but we found room. The lunch menu is surprisingly extensive but we kept to the quick options - a... More

Tasty charcuterie platters shared whetted our appetites for delicious creamy broccoli soup served hot. Choice of salad (most generous portion) or pate followed by Peking duck francais and vegetables, finishing with crime caramel. Prix fixe of 65 before drinks. Unbeatable service. Superb cozy homey ambience. We closed the place.

Thoroughly enjoyed our date night dinner. This was our first time at this restaurant since we are new to the area. We will definitely go back. Loved the atmosphere. A restaurant with this kind of charming character is hard to find. It was romantic and quiet the evening we were there, which was Wednesday for the prix-fixe $35. Service was... More

I visit Artisanale a few times a year for lunch. The portions are nice because they are not too big. The food is generally pretty good, however the last time I went I did not enjoy the fish cake as much as I have in the past. I will continue to visit.

Prompted to visit this restaurant for lunch after reading a good review in the Record. The restaurant is bright and airy. We were sat quickly at a table and offered water. There was another table occupied by two older ladies. We sat for sometime before the server returned and was asked to order. Apparently having wine to peruse the menu... More

Food is very over priced especially the eggplant dish which at $27 was a minuscule portion, Service was poor, things we requested weren't provided. Owner seemed to be very hospitable to certain patrons but totally ignored others, After dessert plates cleared we waited 20 mins and had to flag staff to obtain our bill. We will never return or recommend
