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

I have eaten at Artisan's several times since the second month it was open. The food is very good and the consistency is terrific. It has a very nice fairly modern French menu, an interesting and affordable wine list and the service is attentive but low key. Ask to sit at the chef's counter - a very large semi circular... More

Artisans is a beautiful space with an open kitchen. Chef Jacques has an amazing menu with something for everyone, from the best sea bass I have ever eaten to perfectly done steak au poivre. Not to be missed are the beautiful desserts as a finale to a perfect meal. Wine menu complements the entrees, and you will be able to... More

Took four coworkers here for lunch and everyone enjoyed their food. I particularly like the salad with the lemony dressing and carmelized bacon. My friends who had the soup really like it. I can recommend the lobster and risotto. Sea bass and steak are equally good. The desserts are always a treat. There is a free parking garage in the... More

Went here with my wife and another couple. All of the food was delicious, in particular the sea bass and the steak au poivre. I have always liked Le Mistral, which is more traditional in style, but Artisans has a more modern feel, whilst still retaining the best aspects of classical French influence. The open kitchen demonstrates a level of... More

We probably had one of the best meals we have ever had at Artisans. We decided on the tasting menu but choose our own wine pairing as we had a wine expert who had lived in the south of France at our table. Every dish was sublime... cooked to perfection, beautifully presented and exceptioanlly well flavored. The waiter was very... More

Totally lived up to expectations and positive review. Seated @ the chef's table gave us a great view of the kitchen as our meal was prepared.
