A very special restaurant with an accommodating staff. They will adapt the menu to suit your dietary needs. Tucked away in the back of a shopping center, it's hard to find but worth seeking out. Lovely outdoor garden for lunch when the weather permits. Tiny charming building and decor.

Stellar food and AMAZING service! I had the pleasure of dining here on my birthday and it was such a fantastic experience. The food is good, but the service sets this place apart. They printed my name on that night's menu, the owner personally came over to wish me a happy birthday and make sure I was enjoying my meal, and overall just made me feel special. At the end of the night, they gave me a souvenir copy of the menu with my name on it, and best of all, they gave me a handwritten birthday card and thanked me for coming in. It's the little touches that go a long way, and the Artisan Bistro will absolutely see me again!

The food is fantastic. This is where we go for romantic dinners when our kids aren't home.

We drove 20 miles to Lafayette just to try brunch at the Artisan Bistro. Our server, Justin, was a perfect gentleman. He made our dining experience memorable. Food-perfectly prepared. My compliments to John, the chef and owner. We will return and highly recommend this charming restaurant.

My review is about the service. I had two kids with me to celebrate my parents birthday. My children made noise, typical, then out of nowhere the manager said "sorry to say this but there has been 3 outbursts, if this continues we will have to pack your food and have you go." It would've been nice if he nicely asked us ahead of time if we can tame our kids down or accommodate us a table outside no warning. So I canceled and paid my salad.

Nice neighborhood bistro. When we went they had not been opened long and their bread was not up to expectations, but we enjoyed the rest of the meal.

Good food, but very basic, which would be ok if it wasn't so hoity-toity and expensive. The service is good, probably too much accommodating. It is ok for a nice lunch if you don't care to pay a little premium for good quality food.
