    The one problem with this restaurant is the noise level, after being there 4x it's almost impossible to hear the person across the table . Other than that everything is wonderful!

    We had never been to the Artisan Bistro but had a gift card to use. We enjoyed our meal very much! Everything was delicious and had lovely flavours. We went to dinner early, to beat the crowd, and enjoyed a quiet dining experience. We would highly recommend this restaurant😀💥.

    Made a reservation to ensure a table for us. Staff immediately asked if I'd like still or sparkling water while waiting for my friend. We had fresh mint tea and an excellent salad. They were attentive but not over bearing nor absent.

    This place is one of my favorites. We were here recently for a Mother's Day Brunch. The menu was a little limited as usual and a little slanted toward meat. The food was good. The service was outstanding as usual.

    Have been a few times and always enjoyed the food. Only problem this time was when my friends arrived they were told there was no reservation ( got a table though) when I arrived I checked and they found the reservation. I had booked on Open Table so not sure where the problem was. We had a good time, so no problem.

    The restaurant wasn’t busy as it was a holiday weekend, so the service was very attentive and our meals were up in a flash. They always have a nice selection of entrees with thoughtful presentation. We could have had dinner on their small outdoor patio but indoors is more comfortable. We’ll be back!

    We enjoyed our evening at Artisan Bistro and overall rated it highly (5). Our server was charming and personable and the food was tasty! Our slightly lower rating on service was related to a longer than expected wait for our food. Some dishes seemed pricey - e.g. fish and chips - but we found everything zoo be of high quality.

    We were very happy with the service however we felt there was no value in the food. The prawn entree salad had very small overcooked prawns and was less hearty for a dinner salad priced at $19 and the steak & frites had a small portion of sliced steak with fries for $38! It is a cute bistro however the lights were fully up and they could dim the lights for dinner service to make for a more suitable evening ambience.

    Went for the prix fixe menu during Dine Around, and we were very impressed. Standouts were the wild mushroom soup, the beet salad and the salmon. Everything very fresh and beautifully prepared. Service was fantastic, very efficient and friendly. Will definitely go back to sample a la carte items.
