Artistry On the Green Ratings and Reviews
Lovely restaurant. A little gem that needs a bit of polishing. Very pretty room, luxurious linens, nice menu selections, delicious bread and butter, very pleasant service. However, we were served drinks before dinner in the living room of the Inn (we were in-house guests) with no cocktail napkins....had to ask server for them. While this seems like it's not a big deal, at this price point and a Relais and Chateaux property, one would expect a certain caliber of service. There were no candles in the dining room at dinner...not a single votive or taper or candelabra anywhere and no lanterns on the porch. This small detail would add some ambiance and make it feel more charming and special and inviting. The food was good but not great and overall felt expensive for a mediocre salad and decent roast chicken breast. We are from NYC and very used to $$$$ dinners but this seemed out of whack. Wine list is eh. Hostess was not up front both times we entered the restaurant so we had to wait to be greeted and sort of poke around to see if we were waiting in the correct place. The omelette at breakfast had way too many onions that were neither raw, nor caramelized......they were slightly cooked, almost steamed - yuk, and not enough gruyere - I sent it back. Overall, it was pricey for the money and would not consider it a destination restaurant. We enjoyed our meals because we were staying there, but next time would go out in town. Having said that, the Inn is wonderful and the service extremely accommodating, and a great place to stay if in the area. The hotel is a 9/10 and the restaurant a 7/10.
Delicious and very accommodating for kids! Although there is no changing table in the bathroom, there are Hugh chairs and etch-a-sketches for kids to play with. Food was excellent although I wish for brunch there was one more lunch food option as it is all mainly breakfast food.
We love Artistry on the Green and have eaten there many times including Thanksgiving and Easter. The food is amazing and the presentation is always so beautiful. The service is acceptional and the staff is always so attentive.
The atmosphere is quiet and condusive to great conversation. My only criticism is that at a recent birthday dinner I had to ask our server to refill my water glass. Sounds minor but at this price point the staff should not have to be asked to refill water glasses. Nevertheless, Artistry remains one of our favorites.
RESTAURANT MA-REVIEW: "ARTISTRY-ON-THE-GREEN" (in the Inn at Hastings Park in Lexington)
A perfectly beautiful restaurant in a perfectly beautiful inn. That's an accurate description of this wonderful restaurant in the newly-designated Relais et Chateaux property in historic Lexington, Mass, just a half hour from Boston. If you're not familiar with the Relais et Chateaux designation, it's a world renowned travel award given to the finest restaurants and hotels in the world. It's highly coveted and as prestigious as it gets in the travel industry. Artistry on the Green in the Inn at Hastings Park joins only four other places in the entire state of Massachusetts that have won this award. The Inn consists of a Main House, and two other smaller buildings around a private parking lot. All three are beautifully designed and decorated in the traditional New England style...gray and white with a wraparound porch on the Main House. The restaurant in the Main House, Artistry on the Green, carries out the New England Style of decor in grays and whites with wooden chairs, and a working fireplace. It's a perfectly appointed room in every way. The menu consists of traditional New England dishes. Service, presentation, and the food itself are all excellent. I'm really not doing this restaurant justice...it's much better than it sounds. If you're in the area, drive out and check it out for yourself. You won't be disappointed.
Wonderful little place attached to an Inn. Not very crowded, limited light menu, but exactly what we were looking for. Food was yummy. Only drawback, waiter only offered coffee refills to one person (who had to ask) continuously through the meal, no one else. That was weird.
Disappointed. Made a reservation for Saturday lunch. Arrived only to be told dining room was closed for special event. Seated in very nice auxiliary room with one other larger group - who then proceeded to play the piano - poorly but loudly. Menus arrived at which point we found out only breakfast was being served. Will not be back.
We were there for a weekday lunch. The meal
My friend chose (quiche with salad) was served cold, as was the pre-meal bread we got. I had the Lobster Cobb Salad which was not a good value as the amount of lobster on the salad was tiny. The orher ingredients in the salad were quite fresh. Our waiter was unfriendly. In fact, he didn't smile once during our visit. I'm not in any hurry to go back to Artistry.
If ever in the Lexington area you should try this restaurant. It is a neighborhood gem. Food is excellent, service is excellent and the Ambiance is extremely tasteful. The quiche of the day and the Fish and Chips were excellent dishes. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
A group of us went for Restaurant Week. The menu for that venue was very limiting. I usually order fish but the offering was clam chowder and fried fish and chips. I was a little disappointed in the special Restaurant week menu. I ordered lobster salad and it was tasty. It was a small portion of lobster, but the overall salad was excellent. THe sorbet was excellant and very refreshing. This was my first visit to Artistry on the Green. The noise level in the room is energetic. The room is lovely and the wait staff was very pleasant. I would like to try dinner for a special occasion.
It is very hard, one would think, to ruin fresh scrambled eggs and bacon at a Relais & Chateau establishment, but my eggs were cold and bland, and the bacon was barely warm. The restaurant was not busy this particular weekday morning, but that is no excuse for an upscale inn. The kitchen had more time to make our meals great and they were poor.
Overall we had a pleasant experience. The food was delicious, and the service gracious , however the portion of quiche was unbelievably small ! I feel coffee or tea should be included in the price of an entree. At $3 a cup of coffee this makes brunch quite pricy for a group.
We enjoyed our meal very much but were surprised when the check arrived that there was a charge for sparkling water. When we sat down the waiter had two plain bottles in his hands, one bottle of sparkling and one bottle of still water. He asked which we preferred never mentioning that there would be a charge for the sparkling water in the plain bottle. A heads up would have been preferable over a hidden charge in our check.
Incorrect address -- very difficult to locate; we drove past it about four times. This restaurant is inside 'The Inn' hotel and although we called two times prior, Ann Marie never expressed that to us. When we got there, our prior calls were never acknowledged. The waiter did not volunteer giving his name until I asked and lastly, it took 1 1/2 hours to be served our meal when there were only three other guests with 5 wait staff in the restaurant that seated approximately fifty!
We ate brunch and ate very well for a reasonable price. My friend ordered the eggs Benedict and said the hollandaise sauce was the best she has ever taisted. I had the duck confit frittata, immediately transporting me to the time I first fell in love with duck. If you want this experience try Artistry on the Green.
The setting of Artistry on the Green is warm and inviting and its dining room beautifully appointed. The service was also outstanding: helpful and fast but not rushed. The main attraction is, of course, the food which was creative and delicious. This was my third time eating at Artistry and I can say, without reservation, that it has become my favorite restaurant for special occasions
We reserved a window table for two, and were shown to a middle-of-dining room table for four... where we sat... and sat... and sat... and sat. I cannot comment on the establishment's service, because none was evident. Eventually, we left. Don't waste your time visiting this establishment. It's not, however, a waste of money, because their nonexistent service ensures the impossibility of actually ordering anything for which one would be expected to pay.
Artistry on the Green is an excellent restaurant. The food is fresh, locally sourced, prepared to perfection and well presented. The dining room is miticulously decorated, spaciously placed tables, sound absorbing ceiling panels and window treatments, beautiful fireplace, and nicely selected colonial decor. The staff are friendly and professional. We have also sat in the living room for lunch..another lovely space, with sofas!
The atmosphere and service were both good. I ordered the veal, and I found it to be a little on the chewy side. My husband ordered the duck, which he said was very delicious. The shaved green salad was also quite delicious. Our waiter was friendly and attentive.
