I am not sure what the other reviewer is talking about or when they went but Artisan is fantastic. I am a local and it is about time a great, trandy restaurant comes along to cater to those who miss the city lifestyle. The food is fabulous. Favorite appetizer is the fondue, crab cakes a close second (though I hear the seared tuna is also fab!). The menu changes seasonally and I can tell you I have had most everything on the list. Super! As for the wait staff, they are so friendly, helpful, and have ALWAYS done great by me. They recognize me by sight and always come over to say hello. And the owner, Michael, is always accomodating!!! He makes a point to stop by every table to see how things are. He makes you feel like a valued guest and not just a person eating there. I am guessing the other reviewer is someone who constantly complains but I have no idea.
Pros: Food, ambience, staff
Cons: slightly above average prices (but for Paso not a big city)
