Great time! The bartenders and staff made my daughter’s 21st birthday a time to remember ;) The food, spirits, atmosphere, and friendly faces will definitely draw us back on my next visit to Baltimore.

I have visited the Artful Gourmet Bistro on numerous occasions, and the food has been incredible every time. I ate here pre-pandemic, and have gotten takeout twice since, and I can't recommend this place enough. Just go. Your taste buds will thank you! I've tried...the following dishes, and I highly recommend every one: * Masaccio - These are the lamb chops. I don't typically order lamb chops, but one of my colleagues highly recommended them, so I went for it. They were fantastic, and I wasn't disappointed! The smashed potatoes were great as well. * Picasso - This is the 10-ounce filet, and it was AMAZING! It was cooked to perfection (medium rare in my case), tender, and so flavorful. Again, the smashed potatoes were great, as was the vegetable. * Last Supper - This is paella, and OH MY GOD, it is the best paella I have ever had. Typically you get a lot of rice and chicken in these dishes (at other places), but that is not the case at the Artful Gourmet. I counted over 15 mussels, and the shrimp/clams were plentiful as well. It was delicious and very filling as well. This is not my favorite dish at this restaurant. It was phenomenal. My colleagues have tried other dishes as well, and all were enjoyed greatly. The service has always been great, too. When we ate in, our waiter was very attentive and friendly. When ordering takeout, the host and others were efficient & friendly (joking with me about my attire, which featured the logo of a rival of the local team). Also, I forgot to get a receipt (which was needed for expenses), and the staff went above & beyond, leaving a note for the manager, who called me the next day and sent me the receipt via email. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. I will absolutely go back when in the area. Delicious food. Great service. Wonderful experience!More

I was given a gift certificate for here, or I may have never discovered The Artful Gourmet Bistro. It is a bit off the main road. I was with my son for a lunch break. We began with Dali Calamari with to kinds of BBQ...sauce. I would never have thought of that but the pieces were cooked nicely. A few were a bit chewy so they could have been pulled from the fryer 30 seconds sooner. The red sauce was just normal BBQ sauce and wasn't vey good with it. The aioli type was much better. The Rodrigue Cajun Quesadilla was interesting but not the best item we tried. Purist Ahi. Encrusted Ahi on a cucumber slice with a seaweed salad garnish. There were 4 large pieces. It sounded interesting and I was not disappointed. The only change I would suggest is one of the cucumber was a little thick and distracted from the whole favor profile. Also a couple of the tuna slices were a bit chewy. But I would definitely have again. The Met, buffalo chicken with onions, bleu cheese and mozzarella on flatbread. Very tasty. My son got a wrap and brought it home. I didn't taste it but he seemed very pleased. It sounds like a lot of food but we had to use the whole certificate. Obviously we had food for a couple more meals at home. Our waitstaff was superb. I can't say how much we liked her, because words wouldn't do her justice. You should be really pleased with anything you get there, and I totally recommend a visit.More

My husband and I met a friend of ours here for a Saturday night dinner. It's a bit off the beaten path, but it was clear why it's the number one restaurant in the area. We all had items off of the Restaurant Week menu....My husband liked that everything was relatively simple but great combinations, like the crab and spinach chicken. I had the roasted red pepper and Gouda soup-so delicious! I'm a tomato bisque fan anyways, and the added red pepper and cheese was a great mix. The restaurant staff was patient with our little one, and we felt welcome the entire time despite having a newborn. Food came quickly, and the staff kept up with filling our waters and cleaning empty dishes. I'd come back!More

Artful has a great menu with a wonderful variety. Their menu labels gluten free options and is flexible with altering items so they are gluten free. Their staff is well educated or will verify with the chef. For someone who has celiac this is such...a relief.More

We were in the Owings Mill area for a PBS event and were delighted to find the Artful Gourmet Bistro for an excellent dinner. A warm welcome and delightfully decorated interior with artworks was the prelude to an excellent meal. Highly recommended!

I have visited dozens of times and never had a bad meal or bad service. Nice modern artistic decor. I just wish they would update the menu once in a great while.

Great birthday dinner! Not a huge menu but they have appetizers and eclectic dinner meals and something to please anyone’s taste. Not inexpensive but a good treat for a special occasion. I had the Michaelangelo, a signature pasta dish, but with steak slices instead of...shrimp - delicious. Hope to go back for another “special” occasion soon!More

For appetizers, we had the Ahi tuna and gazpacho soup. The tuna was good but the wasabi had no kick. The soup was pretty bland and I expected much more. I had the hokusai salad. I like the sesame ginger dressing but the chicken was...very dry. Overall salad was good.More
