My husband and I have visited the restaurant on several occasions. Many years ago they offered a spoon tasting menu. This was interesting a few times, but lost its newness and fun after a couple experiences. After the pandemic we hadn’t visited for awhile ....We decided to go for a friends birthday. This was a nice menu, presented in the new fashion of pick how many course you’d like style. I thought this concept was cool, but when it comes to groups everyone at the table should have the same number of courses to ease the flow of the dining experience. Now this visit tonight my husband and I decided to give it another try. We arrived, weren’t greeted particularly well, but we were seated and presented with the menu. We choose our six courses and off we went. The first “on the house” bread and butter and goat cheese dish was similar to that which we’ve had I the past. Then we moved to the celery and beet course. This was tasty but the Romanian cheese was a bit frozen inside. Next was the duck confit. This was our favorite course. It was flavorful and balanced. Then came the potato and parsnip au gratin. This had minimal flavor. Some of the things on the plate didn’t quite seem like they belonged. Next there was the beef ravioli. This was super disappointing. It’s pretty hard to not deliver for me when it comes to pasta… no flavor. Sauce was lacking in body. Everything fell flat. The final food course was the bbq chicken… this was disappointing too. I was thankful for the sauce, but it was again one note and lacked depth. The best thing in the course was the croquet. We botrh went for the raspberry and chocolate Grenache dessert. It was ok at best. No attempt to wow us or provide something other then pipped out dollops of chocolate with some brownie pieces on top. Overall, I can hardly call the experience fine dining. I’ve been eating in this city for over 10 years now and it feels like this place is using its old reputation to serve a not so “fine dining” experience. It feels like all of their courses and food are picked to be premade in the back house and there is very little innovative execution happening. It’s really pretty sad. I’d hoped to be impressed or even slightly pleased, as I would have enjoyed having another culinary spot to enjoy and recommend.More

What a fabulous experience we had at The Artist. The decor is absolutely lovely and serene, the food is divine and the service is polished. We chose the 6 course tasting menu (you can choose anywhere from 2-6 courses). Since we did choose the six,...we covered nearly the whole menu between the two of us. Every course was a work of art. From the complimentary amuse bouche down to the last “truffle” truffle, it is amazing. Sea bass, lamb ravioli, a Romanian cheese selection, cucumber sorbet, chocolate ganache - all wonderful. Do not miss this restaurant if you are in Bucharest. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food.More

This restaurant is a must if you visit Bucharest. The interior is lovely but we sat outside for dinner in a gorgeous courtyard herb garden. The food is amazing and it is indeed art on a plate. The service was great snd the waiter was...very knowledgable about the wines. We had bread and 2 types of butter along with goats cheese profiteroles as a complementary starter before the food we had ordered. The portions for a tasting menu were very good. Overall a wonderful experience and excellent value for moneyMore

I took 4 courses off the menu and frankly each course was fantastic, from starter to desert. The service was attentive and friendly but the food was the star. Having eaten in Michelin stars all over Europe I can say with confidence that this place...is Extraordinary. If you are in Bucharest - GOMore

Great experience. The tasting menu was exceptional, we had four courses each and thoroughly enjoyed all of them. The service was wonderful, so attentive and friendly. Definitely worth paying a visit when in Bucharest.

Really delicious food and great service. You can order up to 6 courses but you chose the amount yourself. I recommend booking a table in advance.

The concept of the restaurant is unique and we felt this also in the design of the place and of course the dishes. We came as 3 couples and enjoyed a pleasent evening with plenty of new tastes. The menu is a bit tricky and...one may find it rather slim.More

Price of €50-60 per person (either sharing wine or having 3 glasses for appetiser, first and second course each) may look high, but this is a Michelin star quality which you will never get for less anywhere.
