I went for a quick lunch with my Dad to celebrate my birthday. I loved the atmosphere and the aesthetic of the restaurant. We sat at the chef's table (highly recommend) and we both had the business lunch which included salad, entrée, and dessert. At first it took awhile to get a waiter to take our order, however I really... More

First visit, first impressions: incredibly expensive, quality is uneven, service is almost great. Details: Appetizers are $15-25 each. Entrees $30-50. Soup and Salads $10-20. Mixed drinks $15. Ouch! Seldom have we paid more, and when we have it has been an exceptional experience. Not so much here. Some of these dishes are truly great, some were served lukewarm, some (escargot,... More

We also attended during Restaurant Weeks and sat at the Chef's Table. The food was excellent and it was fascinating watching an extremely efficient kitchen that ran like a clock. The food was awesome. The bread was served hot and fresh from the oven. I really had to control myself to not eat all of it. My wife and I... More

He was fantastic. Food: fois gras & lamb tartar appetizer was excellent Lamb entree was a 4 of 5 bit the caramelized ribeye was superb. The only down side was the soufflé which... More

The ambiance was perfect for a romantic dinner. My boyfriend and I went for Houston Restaurant Weeks and we genuinely enjoyed our time there. We sat at the Chef's table facing the kitchen so we were entertained by all the action, and we even had enough elbow room to comfortably enjoy our dinner. Our favorite dishes were the escargot for...

We visited Artisans again for their Houston Restaurant Weeks menu. We had not visited in a while and were happy to see that it was just as good as previous visits. The amuse bouche was a spoon of flavorful heirloom tomatoes. Our escargot was tender—not tough or chewy—and bathed in garlicky butter goodness. I tried the Lobster thermador—not something I... More

Artisan's is a great place with superb food and service. Sitting at the Chef's table which seats about 25 is the best seat in the house. You can observe all the Chef's and workers in the kitchen preparing the food. You have to try the Chef's 5 course dinner. He chooses his best dishes and you can even do a... More

First, this was one of the few restaurants in the area that you can eat, talk, and hear without feeling like you are yelling at the other members in your party. Second, the food was fantastic - the Lamb, fillets (two different kinds). There were three in our party and we all had a different dish which was cooked to... More

Supposedly one of the best restaurants in Houston. Good ambiance but very expensive for the food we had; nothing that you cannot find in any other luxury restaurant.

We chose the gastronomique five courses. Courses are delicious and big somewhat when you know that you have five to enjoy total.... White wines were good also. Red wines were too warm - classic mistake to think that a Pinot noir need to be served at room temperature. The site is nice and well located. I may go back with... More
