Finally made it to craftbar this past Saturday-place was quiet, comfortable though(it was early). Had a fantastic meal, frisee salad and the special, a penne bolognese-both were so flavorful, also loved the beer selection. Service was great, friendly and low key.
Artisanal on the other hand, has soem serious service problems. Went there for brunch Sunday, the waiter was barely awake. The food was good, esp. the gnocchi, but had to get up and ask the host for our drinks, who still didn't do anything, finally another waiter brought most of them, but still my partner waited over 20 minutes for a bloody mary-this IS brunch, right?
Won't go back to Artisanal, but will definitely hit craftbar again.
