My husband and I are in town for a wedding and decided after reading the reviews to have lunch here. We started with the fried calamari which was tender, abundant and flavorful. I had the salmon and calamari risotto and my husband had a pasta and meat dish. Both excellent! We had a tasty lemon tart for dessert. I would... More

Have been eating here for years. The chef creates very nice specials and they have great flavor. The other night we had the duck with quail and home made pasta. Just beautiful. Created to perfection. Spices and flavors blended very well. I wish the chef had kept the escargots on the menu. My kids absolutely loved it and so did... More

We hadn't been to the Wild Artichoke in so long, we couldn't remember why we'd never come back. Basically, there's nothing really wrong with it. The people are very nice. The prices are reasonable and the dishes are creative. But, with just a couple of exceptions, the food was just average. My wife ordered a pasta and I ordered the... More

7 of us had lunch here today. The server was vary pleasant. The menu was limited but interesting. But there were a number of specials. Two of us had a cup of chili which was very good. A number had the wild Artichoke salad and a special salad similar in nature. Both were unremarkable. Caesar salad OK. All in all... More

We've eaten at the Wild Artichoke a number of times over the past few years. The food is typically great and the atmosphere is quiet. It's a small store front type of restaurant but their chefs always put a lot of care into their creations. We love the salads. I'd pass on the artichoke leaves but the service if very... More

This is a small (42 capacity) restaurant in an unassuming strip mall. The menu is fairly extensive for such a small place. It has little atmosphere--the emphasis here is the food and the service. The escargots in mushroom caps was earthy and perfectly cooked. The artichoke soup was good but under spiced. Our party of four had three specials and... More

We researched a place for lunch while visiting The Nixon Library. Reviews took us to Wild Artichoke. We were very pleased with the service and the food. The chef comes to your table to be sure everything is to our liking. Crisp, tasty salads, Very good pasta and the sausage, veal and beef red sauce was fresh and delightful. We... More

We've eaten there several times and the food, service is outstanding. The owner/Chef James came out on all occasions to make sure we were enjoying our feast. You won't be disappointed while you dine here. And don't miss the desserts, made from scratch and all have been wonderful. It's very small, so make a reservation.

Love the food. The Jumbalya is very good. So is the meatloaf. Salads and escargot very good also. We love to go back again and agian. Great for special occasions. Inside very small reservations a must because of size of restaurant. Not for young children...Definately an adult restaurant.
