Salad was delicious but special sirloin tips were overdone when we asked for medium rare. Also pricey.

Thanks for the feedback, John and your patience with our servers. Covid really threw the restaurant industry off and we are slowly coming back.

The food was okay but not great. Price was high for the quality. The interior needs an upgrade. Outside is better. Service was so so. We waited awhile to get seated with reservations and it took some time to get to place our order. I will say it was very busy for outdoor seating so that I'm sure contributed to the slow service.

I always introduce friends to this place ever since I discovered it. I come here for the mussels which are always tasty! Almost everything I’ve tried on the menu is good. Wish they would do away with the red carpet 😅 the outdoor seating area is cute however. Great for first dates!

The service was slow. I was dining with a party of four and the food took over an hour. The restaurant was very smoky. We had a ask for bread several times before we got some. Everyone around us was finish dinner and before our food came. Food wasn’t bad. However, the manger was rude and very unapologetic.

Artful Bistro is a great neighborhood restaurant. They have severely limited the menu since the pandemic. The food is good and generally well done. My friend had the mussels and found them to be fresh if not creatively seasoned. I had a tuna wrap and found it to be dry but with good ingredients. This restaurant is worthy of a moderate price point and if you are careful in ordering you can hit the mark. If you are not careful, your check will be well above your experience.

There was some confusion re sitting outside & we sat at bar which was very noisy. We were able to sit outside & then the good experience started. Our wait person was excellent. We had drinks, wine a good good ranging from salad with tuna to the blackened whole snapper.

They were very short staffed that night but were able to meet our needs.

We love Artful and go there for milestones. My one grievance is the service time. The servers are delightful and knowledgeable but I can’t understand why the service slows to a crawl. Short staffed? Perhaps. Any other night I probably wouldn’t have minded but when the sun went in the temperature dropped. The food is outstanding and a good value for the price
