“All round greatness!”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

It's a hidden gem in Coventry! I came with the family after hearing wonderful reviews and they weren't wrong! The food here is beautiful, especially the steaks with the bloody mary butter (although you can ask for the meal without the butter), and found the bottles of house wine to be a decent price. We were offered free bottled water which was very helpful. I couldn't have asked for better service- the ladies were attentive and made sure we had drinks whilst we were waiting for our food. After the meal we ventured downstairs for one last drink... we ended up having a couple! The atmosphere is lovely and the staff downstairs are just as kind as those upstairs. The acoustic music playing was brilliant, a lovely night at the artisan indeed! I'll be booking for another meal very soon!

“Amazing night”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

Came here for a work do as someone had recommended the venue to the organiser. All round great experience. We ate in the restaurant upstairs, the steak was as good as I've eaten in a long while... Certainly the best I've had in Coventry. After dinner we went downstairs to the bar which had a live acoustic singer and what was going to be one drink turned into much more! The atmosphere was great and will definitely be returning! A hidden gem

“Fantastic food, fantastic price.”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

Booked in the restaurant for food, heard a few friends say they enjoy it there so decided to see what the fuss was. Must say the steak I had was truly exceptional. I've ate in a fair few expensive places in my time and this up there with some of the best. Good service, great food and a welcoming restaurant.

“Excellent food...excellent value”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

Don't normally write reviews but felt compelled to write one, as this is now a restaurant I visit time and time again. The artisan has become our 'local' on a Sunday afternoon due to the fabulous value 3 course menu - the food is absolutely gorgeous - a particular favourite is the chocolate/mocha pot desert - to die for!!
Have eaten off the normal menu a handful of times now and each time the food is fantastic - in particular the steaks with bloody mary butter...and the chips!
The staff upstairs are all lovely and can't do enough for you.
Would recommend to anyone. Ideal for a nice meal for two or perfect for families as we take out Son here and he loves it.
