It is a small dining room with very personalized service. The wine has many affordable choices. While the menu is not long, it is imaginative and covers all categories of food. I particularly enjoyed the local venison. Highly recommended.

Dined in during my stay with service from the Artisan Restaurant. I enjoyed the braised beef cheeks with mash, caramelised onion, tomato relish and cress. The accompaniments were delicious however I thought the beef itself lacked a little flavour. Very tender but a little bland....More

Description
Artisan is about good food. That's food with a story and service, not a science. It's honest. It's food you'll remember next year. It's a dinner you'll tell your mum about. Or better yet. Bring her to. The occasion might pass but you want the memory to last. With menus by our Executive Chef MacLean Fraser, Artisan Dining House is open 7 days and located on level 1 of the Bolton Hotel, Wellington's only independent 5 star boutique hotel.
