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 restaurant is a treasure to have in the neighbourhood. Food and service are excellent, it's just a bit noisy sometimes.

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.

When a restaurant flows in ambiance, food and service, it becomes my next go to place. For breakfast or lunch this is my next go to place.

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!

The food was good, the service was excellent, the only disappointing thing was that some of our party who had confirmed their intention to attend did not show up. Overall, a great lunch and we do plan on coming back.

The service was excellent. Our food was delicious and came in a timely manner. My only observation was it was a little crowded and it was awkward getting through aisles. Will definitely be going again.

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.

Best place to meet for coffee ad lunch in the area. Excellent food. Good service. A go to place for meeting friends. Lots of parking. Can get a bit noisy if sitting in the middle but near windows and in booth area excellent.

Only issue on our last visit was the noise level, like a lot of restaurants there is nothing on the walls to absorb the chatter. We will go again but likely not on a Friday night

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.

Food is very good for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Staff are very friendly. Booths are nice. Central tables can get a little crowded but at the least the tables are not all jammed in like some other restaurants.
