Garden outdoor dining is very pleasant and well organized. Reception and service were very good. Pasta Primavera was amazing. Fluke special look in the chioppino. Sorbet selection great. Can’t wait to go back.

Wonderful lunch for a friends birthday. Socially distancing and masks endorced. Lovely restaurant and delicious food. Beautiful and chic bar and dining inside, and outside is spectacular gardens and seating. Great place for a date, special occasion or business meal. The general manager is a lovely man, pays attention to detail can’t say enough positive about Artisan. My husband and I love to dine there. Will be back next week again!

Though we had made reservations on the patio, we had to dine inside due to the rainstorm and it was still very nice. Tables were nicely space out and the food was delicious as always.

We celebrated our anniversary at Artisan and it was spectacular. Olivier provided excellent service. We started with oysters on the half shell and the superfood salad (fabulous). We both ordered the catch of the day, which is served atop cioppino. The night we were there the fish was halibut. It was delicious. Looking forward to going back.

We came to Artisan for my boyfriends birthday and it was such an amazing date night. All of the wait staff were extremely helpful and kind. We were checked on several times, plates were removed quickly after finishing each course. We ordered a bottle of wine, tuna Appetizer, I got the sea scallops and my boyfriend got the lobster fra diavolo which were all delicious. They even wrote happy birthday on our desert plate and desert was on the house. We were treated very well and had an amazing night out.

LOVED IT! VERY SPECIAL PLACE! FOOD WAS AMAZING, AND SERVICE WAS IMPECCABLE. HONESTLY , I DID NOT KNOW IT WAS PART OF THE HOTEL, AND WE MAY NOT HAVE GONE AS A RESULT, AS WE ARE NOT REALLY FANS OF HOTEL RESTAURANTS. I AM GLAD I DIDNT KNOW, OR WE WOULD HAVE MISSED OUT!
HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

This is a nice place to go for outdoor dining. Not like some places that have you eating on asphalt. I think the masks on the waiters and waitresses will not go away so soon. It's kinda nice that they wear them. The ambiance, service and food were great. Didn't know how much we missed dining out. I had prime hanger steak. delicious.... My wife had linguini with lobster. Loved it. It was a great evening weather wise.

I love the ambiance at the Artisian; wether it is a date night or catching up with old friends.. Their outside dining takes you miles away from its actual Blueback location,
I have been in similar settings but not in this country!
The food is creative, artfully plated and delicious!
I can't wait to go back.

Fine dining in an upscale atmosphere, albeit limited to outdoors and with social distancing. Food was certainly good, although the menu was not exceptionally ambitious.

Loved being outside! The hanger steak was perfectly paired with French fries! I have never experienced a side dish that paired so well to the main dish! Bacon wrapped dates were an amazing and unique appetizer! We ended with the chocolate molten lava cake. Definitely would come back again... and again.. and again!

Great food here- definitely get the crab chowder! Had a great scallop dush last night, as well. The social distancing set up is really great here, without people walking by you on sidewalks at all while you eat.

Please bring back the Vegetable Tian and the Tomatillo gazpacho. The newly added NE crab chowder was good but is not the same as the wonderful gazpacho. The cavatelli was disappointing.

The setting was lovely and we were greeted pleasantly. Outdoor setting was pleasing and well spaced. Very nice waitperson. The three things with the food that were a bit disappointing are: the rolls were stale and appeared to be reheated in a microwave ( bread was tough); the wine we ordered from the list was not the wine we were served. It was a different vintage with no explanation, which it should been; and salmon which we ordered as medium came out well done and too salty.

We had a lovely dinner but when I made the reservation it asked if it was a special occasion. I put down Anniversary. No mention was made to us by Artisan that we were celebrating a special event. Why ask if it was not noted by restaurant.
