It is because of excellent reviews like this that Artisan is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Restaurant

We were excited to learn all about Artisan and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with one of the owners, Brad Canniff.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Artisan stand apart from its competitors. With its smaller space and open kitchen, Artisan provides a unique and intimate dining experience to all of its guests. Their space allows for an intimate and fine dining experience while still making guests feel comfortable and relaxed. Having an open kitchen means nothing is hidden from guests and guests are at a chef’s table, which makes for a fine-dining experience. Their standards are high, and they use as much local produce and game meat as possible. They also make everything in-house, including stocks, broth, and trimming meats.

Artisan’s excellence is highlighted by their many accreditations and acknowledgments, which include The Four Diamond Award from AAA, accreditation from Wine Spectator, and being featured as a bucket list restaurant by MSN.

Building Success And Giving Back

Artisan has earned a phenomenal reputation, so we were excited to hear about some of the ways they have gotten their name out and grown their business. Brad told us that they do utilize some online resources, like ad campaigns and social media, but that word of mouth and reviews from happy customers have been their greatest source of new business. Artisan has also gained some recognition in the community, where they do as much as they can to give back and support local. They feature local artists in their gallery and partner with the local Salvation Army, local schools, CAPS, and many other foundations. Brad said:

“Take care of your community, and your community will take care of you.”

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Artisan has managed to. We asked if Brad could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what he had to say:

“Provide consistent service and products. Inconsistency increases the risk of bad reviews from people… Inconsistency and a lack of genuine service are some of the biggest problems in the service industry. You need to remember the humanity of serving, and focus on the people, not just the money.”

Congratulations to Artisan for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Brad for taking the time to speak with us!
