Artisanal Fromagerie Bistro & Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
Artisinal has been a favorite standby of ...
Artisinal has been a favorite standby of mind for years, and their fondue and cheeses remain excellent choices. However, it seems like in my last 2 times I visited the quality of both food and service has slipped. Specifically, on my last trip, the dover sole was somewhat mushy and the meuniere sauce was overly salty (although the pate appetizer was delicious). Our waiter couldn't have been less interested (example, "what type of tea do you have?" answer: "I know we have chamomile" as the only option) and took our order by spreading his hands as if to ask "are you ready yet?" Overall it just felt sloppier than it has in the past, as if the people working there no longer really care.

Our server was extremely unfriendly and unaccomadating. I had specified that it was a special occasion and that we had dietary restrictions when I made a reservation. For a bill that was susbstantial, the service and food was mediocre. Never returning or recommending.

I will say that the Truffle Fondue was delicious. However, the prices at this restaurant are out of control. Even at some of the top restaurants in NYC, I don't think I have encountered these prices. I don't know what they are thinking. Our appetizers were adequate but not stellar, further infuriating given the prices. Perhaps that is why the restaurant was half empty on a Saturday night.

My grandson and I were in town to take as big a bite of the apple as we could over a three day weekend. I originally chose this restaurant because it was closely located to our next activity. What an exquisite find!! Both of us were so delighted by their super delicious Mac and Cheese made with four varieties of cheeses and their bread that makes you think you've been magically transported to Paris. Noteworthy macaroons for dessert too! Excellent, friendly service and lovely atmosphere. This place is definitely going on my must do list for my next visit to NYC. Just loved the experience and craving a repeat. They are moving to a new location on Park Avenue in January per the maître d.

A visit to Artisanal never disappoints! A friend and I finally took the cheese plunge with a petite order (could easily serve 4 people as an appetizer) of the artisanal cheese fondue with a generous accompaniment of cubed bread, apples and pears plus salads...and this was an excellent late lunch/early dinner choice before theatre...if you're not counting calories! The dessert menu was so tempting (though quite expensive compared to other menu items) but conscience prevailed until my next visit.

We have been here many times and enjoyed it...this time might be our last...the prices seemed to have gone up..we were not able to find a simple bottle of wine for under $65.00..actually sent the first bottle back..something we've NEVER done!! Fondue was fine, but prices were crazy for mediocre entrees that were very small...Hamburger $35.00??? Grilled cheese sandwich for $30.00??? I had fish and chips sandwich that was one tiny piece of fried cod on a slider size bun...nothing great, expensive and very small..my daughter , whom we were celebrating being home from Boston...had chicken under a brick...which was smothered in curry and way too much spices ...she sent it back...nowhere on the description was curry mentioned
Our Waiter was extremely nice...but the whole experience was very disappointing and expensive and we have decided to cross Artisanal off of our Favorite Restaurant list in NYC...

Have been eating at Artisanal since it opened, but not in a long while. The food portions are much smaller than in the past, and the prices higher. One of our companions selected a special of the day and I was dumb-struck when the check came and the dish (dover sole) was $68 ! Seems like the waiters should share that info when presenting specials as it was more than twice and almost three times the price of menu selections. Will return, but infrequently unless I see better value.

Very disappointed by the terrible food and service. How far they have fallen. The manager could care less about our feedback and in fact displayed an utterly arrogant and uninterested demeanor. His arrogance is shameful and rude particularly for a customer who spends $95 per drink. Everyone should be treated with respect however they do not seem to care one bit about the quality and presentation of their food. The soup was abysmal. The "kale" salad was presented as if picked from the ground and thrown in plate with dirt. The fish sandwich was soaked in tartar sauce and thrown together. The waitress was flustered and got our order incorrect and took over thirty minutes to bring out a salad and no bread until requested. There are just so many classy delicious and proper places in the city. Why throw your hard earned money down the drain to be given substandard food for a restaurant of this caliber and to be treated with such disrespect by a so called manager. Shame on you artisanal.

Stumbled on this place when my daughter wanted chocolate fondue. Went back for Mother's Day due to the extensive cheese and wine list. Kids loved the Mac and Cheese and the Bread!!! Recent visit to NYC my daughter wanted to bring her grandmother there. Again, cheese, wine, mac and cheese and the fondue are wonderful. Went on a week night and not too crowded or too loud. Mother's Day was nice even though it was crowded. Service is always attentive but not rushed. They have a small bar/waiting area and you can eat outside on nice days. Loved the time we were there and they had old time french music playing.

I've been here many times and my only complaint is generally about the noise level. However, this past Saturday night the food and service were off. Our waitress wouldn't leave us alone. Every 2 minutes she was asking, "are you ready to order?" . My husband and I both ordered the whole fish. She did not tell us the price, and no, we did not ask. Mine arrived beautifully filleted after being presented to me. My husband's was brought to him and then went to be filleted. By the time it arrived, not only was my fish cold, but so was my husband's. And filleted? It looked like a bomb went off! No filets, only small broken pieces, with bones, and the skin mixed in. Deplorable and disgusting to look at! We should have sent them both back, but didn't. All for the tune of $68 per fish because it was "flown in from Europe".

This was about my 4th visit there. Maybe my last one. There are much better choices. The food got way too expensive throughout the years. Our server put us on the S-list as soon as he realized we were not going for the most expensive stuff. Service was so slow that we were not able to have dessert. Getting the check was a problem as well. The wine list is extensive and you can find wine by the glass for up to $ 70.

Artisinal never fails to please! Although it's become far pricier than I recall, it's cuisine is worth it -- though it would be nice to have cheaper wines by the glass. The Tomahawk ribeye for 2 is presented well and done to perfection.

Disappointing, 'meh' experience this time - used to be one of my favorites. Food quality has fallen and the person serving us was not very engaged or detail oriented. We had to follow up and ask # of times - and then in the end, were presented with a tipping choice of 18-25 % -- no opportunity to even put in a 15% tip (which she did not deserve). Aggravating. Would have been ok if the food had been good.

Service is so poor that we felt like we had to beg to get more drinks or put in a food order.
The cheese was delicious but taste of the other food items was nothing near what it cost. Totally overpriced. This is one of those wannabe-hip NYC spots that just isn't getting it right.

Horrible. What happened? My salad was no better than those I have on Broadway and 37th street at a deli. And then bread was actually close to frozen. When we got it. Used to be a standard good no brainer resto. No longer. The oysters were good as they had nothing to do with the kitchen.

This place used to be great but it has gone down hill. Super expensive for what you get. They took the brick chicken off the menu and the Mac and cheese barely had any cheese. Wines are really highly priced - cheaper to order by the glass. Dessert was the best part. Room is nice though. I won't return.

I am really sad to write this review. I used to live around the corner from Artisanal 5+ years ago and was there at least once a week for a number of years. It was my favorite restaurant in the city. Loved the food, the ambience, the service--everything about it was special. My husband and I hadn't been back in several years and went for a special occasion last night. Everything about the restaurant has changed, and none of it for the better. The menu and the food were disappointing. The wine was disappointing. The service was disappointing. The ambience was so, so different than it used to be. It has gone from delicious, bustling, and difficult to get a reservation to middle-of-the-road and half empty. I am truly heartbroken about the change in this restaurant. I can no longer recommend this restaurant like I once did. RIP Artisanal.

the food was bland, uninspired, and expensive. Neither my date nor I liked our food, and basically explained to the waitress that we have eaten in this restaurante about a year ago and it was much better, and that prices were more favorable mas well.

Quality of the food was good. However preparation missed the mark. It was also troubling to have the waiter strongly strongly recommending wines on their list that we knew were mostly inexpensive (at retail) plonk and uninteresting. Cheese was excellent.

Omelet ordered very soft but was very well done, and home fries so greasy they were inedible. Salad had no taste. When I complained to the manager, he did not bill us for the dish (I ate one bit of each--omelet, potatoes, salad). My husband's Caesar salad with chicken had just a few pieces of chicken and loads of croutons. No value for the money. We returned home hungry, and we're both small eaters. We've been going to Artisanal for years and don't understand what has happened to the kitchen.

My husband and I use to leave in the neighborhood and we use to love this restaurant! Unfortunately the management and the food has changed. The food was terrible and OVERPRICED!! A burger was 25$ (the bun was hard and the burger was dry); We also ordered the FLUKE CEVICHE, which was awful and the Tuna Tartar was ok but not worth the 20$. We were very disappointed and sad! This use to be one of our favorite restaurants! The service was good but that's about it.

I have been here many times and always loved the experience & food, not this time. It was empty for a Friday night and the usual buzz was gone. Our server showed us photos of 2 specials on an iPad, not appetizing. She never mentioned any changes to the menu yet when 2 of us chose our entrees we were told they were out of that item. I have always ordered the skate and was told they are going to remove it from the menu. There was no substitute. Luckily we enjoyed the fondue but none of the entrees were good and everything was overpriced. I have celebrated birthdays, New Years, Valentine's Day and other events here and wanted to go before they closed this location and moved to the new big one. I wish I had not because my memories are now tarnished. What a disappointment.

Our dinner was much better than our last, shortly after Terrance Brennan left Artisanal. Menu hasn't changed much, but the prices are considerably higher, which is unfortunate. Our Bouillabaise was very good, but the portions were small. We will be back, but not as often as before. Ambiance and service same as a decade ago.

Escargot were served luke-warm. Octopus was chewy. Lobster tail on the pasta was too tough to cut. Cod in citrus was so-so. Preparations were not classic and a lot of them didn't really work. Considering the prices, this is not acceptable.
