We went for an anniversary dinner, the food and service was excellent. Probably the first time I’ve ever wanted to try every item on the menu!
My wife and I have been going to this restaurant for years and we were unaware of the ownership change when we visited this month. We were kindly greeted by the new owner ( as of Jan. 2017) who explained that he had hired a completely new staff and had made changes to the menu. Our waitress was very helpful... 更多
As a person who has been going to this restaurant since 2005, I feel that I have a decent perspective on this establishment. It's been a place I have taken dates, business colleagues, and special friends. I have felt a sense of pride regarding Craftsman because I always appreciated how they were okay with keeping the menu largely the same... 更多
We rolled down here after having a few drinks at the Longfellow Grill and enjoyed another round, Surly Furious for me($6), Vodka($6.50) drink for my friend while we contemplated dinner. There are a lot of options nearby and the menu wasn't really speaking to me, but alas, we were there and our waitress Natalie was being a good champion of... 更多
When the server begins by saying that they are out of 2 of the 3 specials for the evening and you are the first people in the restaurant, be concerned. The items ordered all fell into the 'acceptable but forgettable' range, not what you go out for dinner and expect.
Running a high-end restaurant is ridiculously hard, and I hate to knock a locally-owned place. But Craftsman charges fabulous prices while delivering a less-than-fabulous experience. The menu is very small, and we waited a very long time for service. I was informed that the salmon was "from Scotland" meaning farmed. It was the only fish on the menu. That mean... 更多
This restaurant is on East Lake and has been around long enough to be very solid. The décor is, of course, Craftsman style and very comfortable. This is a good place to relax and have a nice visit. The drink, beer and wine list is not huge. But all items are well thought out. There is a good selection of... 更多
Craftsman is a favorite destination - the food is delicious, the service staff well-informed, and the drinks are creative and tasty. What more could you want?
Lots of Craftsman-style wood, dim fixtures, wood flooring and seating...all puts guests into "the era." A bit more fabric, a few pillows and soft comfort would make the great dining area more hospitable...some brighter art lighting and more of the handicraft visuality would make the room warm and inviting in ALL SEASONS. We visited on a dark wet day in... 更多
Had dinner with a friend here. The restaurant is very attractive in a minimalist way, but it's rather noisy due to an abundance of hard surfaces. Service was excellent. I had a nice glass of wine, a root vegetable salad, and a polenta entree. The polenta dish was very good, but the root vegetable salad suffered from an over-abundance of... 更多
