We had dinner at Artisanal on 10/26, the last night they were open before closing for the winter, and we are so very glad we made it and didn't have to wait until spring! This is a top notch experience in every way: decor, attentiveness of wait staff, variety of menu, extensiveness of wine list, hospitality of hosts, attention to detail. Our server could not have been better. Everything about the food, from presentation to portion size to taste, was just perfect. Our group had four different entrees, and shared bites of all, and there wasn't a lesser choice in the bunch: "butter steak", veal, lamb, and grouper. The appetizers were especially appealing and beautifully presented. Yes, it's expensive, but really worth the price. Valet parking is a nice touch. Even the decoration in the ladies room carried through the haut rustic theme (in a good way, fear not!)
I have read here on Trip Advisor that some people had a problem with the reservation system but we didn't experience any. Be sure to reserve well in advance, especially in high season, as they book quickly. I believe there is outdoor dining available in the summer but on a cold October evening I can't imagine anyone opting for it. I hope the owners enjoy their time off and come back in the spring, ready to entice us with new menus and flavors to try! Go there for a special experience, you won't regret it.
