The menu has a good variety and is consistently good. I have enjoyed their brunch for years. The staff also makes dining there a pleasure.

“Great choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

The restaurant was highly recommended. The total experience exceeded our expectations. Our waiter, Min was very personable and attentive to our needs. He was very knowledge of the menu and his recommendations were on the money. The rib steak was tender. The steak salad was perfect. the chicken tender was lightly battered. The sweet potatoes fries, like everything else was seasoned to perfection.

“one small suggestion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

This is one of the "great American restaurants'--good food, great interior anf FANTASTIC SERVERS. The servers are selected, trained and tested ..and they always seem to enjoy their work. BUT, one small thing---they serve no bread products--WITHOUT SUGAR--especially at breakfast--rye toast--muffins with no sugar--something/anything! please?

“Great neighborhood venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Ever want to find that comfortable neighborhood place where you always feel welcome always find good food and never regret having chosen the spot? This is THE place for Fairfax City. Bar or restaurant areas are equally inviting. Not quite white tablecloth level service or gourmet dining but that's not a real neighborhood kind of place. Arties is the real deal.

“Great food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Our small dental office just celebrated a birthday lunch at Artie's. The staff was very prompt in seating us and Our orders were taken immediately. The staff knew that we had a small window of time to enjoy and celebrate and they were very accommodating. I ordered the salmon salad and the flavors we're amazing. we all made room for dessert and shared the luscious banana pudding and the apple pie ala mode with seven spoons. We will go back to Artie's again. Great food, service and atmosphere.
