“Good service and atmosphere”
Reviewed June 27, 2014 via mobile

Dined here with friends early one Saturday evening. Food tastefully presented, good portion size and most importantly, full of flavour. Although pretty busy, service was efficient and we didn't wait long for drinks or the bill. Would go again although bottled beers are a tad expensive

“nothing special”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

Entered via ground floor entrance where there was a member of staff looking rather fed up, no warm welcome there, we made our way up the stairs and then encountered another member of staff at another counter-you would have thought we were trying to get in some exclusive club! He was equally miserable. I got the impression from this restaurant that they thought they were something special. The food was average, the waitress pleasant. Wouldn't return.

Reviewed June 24, 2014

Great location in Spinningfields. Best tuna salad and pizza ever. Love the decor. Bar area would be perfect for party hire.

“Good food and Staff”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

Visited Artisan when it first opened in Spinningfields area of Manchester, the atmosphere was good and a reasonable bar area to wait whilst you are waiting for your table.
The food and wine menu were both great and quality of food was very good.
Revisited on Saturday night for cocktails and despite only calling in for drinks, the staff were very welcoming and the atmosphere at the bar was great, certainly good for Saturday night without it being over crowded.
There was a new cocktail menu and certainly a lot of very nice choices.

Giving Artisan has been open for nearly a year, it is good to see the quality and standards have not slipped, I cannot wait to eat there again.
