Artisanal Restaurant

Reviewed By Juan M - Key Biscayne

Very few times I use the term Memorable Experience to describe a restaurant. This is it.
I just return from Artisanal and was delighted with the ambiance, the menu, the food, the wine list and last but certainly not least the service.
Our server, Natalie was truly superb. She made our total experience truly memorable. She should be commended.
I strongly recommend this restaurant.

My wife and I visited Over Yonder on an anniversary trip to the mountains and left seeing the potential of the restaurant but feeling very unimpressed. We arrived after dark and while it was raining but the scenery and the outside of the house itself were still very impressive! When we opened the door the girl behind the hostess stand finished what she was doing on the computer before acknowledging us and while it was only a few seconds it definitely wasn't the most welcoming way to start the evening. After we were seated it took several minutes before our waitress came over, which was fine because there was already ice water and menus on the table, but I was beginning to worry about the rest of the night. We also had to ask to have the fireplace turned on and while I understand not leaving them on all night unless its extremely cold outside it would have been nice if the waitress asked us if we wanted it on since it was winter and our table was right in front of it. For dinner my wife had the meatloaf and I had the chicken fried chicken. Both were good and the sides were delicious, except the mashed potatoes which were bland and lukewarm. Overall we were happy with the food but it wasn't worth the price even considering the location and atmosphere. Unfortunately the night ended on a bad note as our waitress did not return for 15 min after leaving us with the desert menu. A party with 46 people had arrived in a private room and while this certainly explains what happened it does not excuse it. My wife and I weren't in a hurry so we didn't get up to track down another waitress or anything like that, but even when our waitress returned she offered no apology. We really wanted to like Over Yonder because the setting is spectacular but we probably won't be back.

Puerto Nuevo Restaurant

Reviewed By mapdsp

I asked our resort manager for restaurant recommendations. This was one of them. My GPS would not find the restaurant, and when I called the guy who answered the phone spoke poor English and could not tell me.

All that aside, the food was abundant and tasty. Service was excellent. The table side guacamole was outstanding. The young lady who mixed it, told us about the ingredients and we could have had her leave out some. We did not, and it was magnificent.

Our food, Fried Chimichangas, Bostic Steak, and a special burrito were perfect. They have a salsa bar, so you can go fill little containers with any of 6 or 8 possibilities.

I eat in a lot of Mexican restaurants, and this one is superior to them all. If we come back here, it will be my first stop.

Reviewed By ebrandon - Old Hickory, Tennessee

My family wanted some barbecue and the Pedalin' Pig was recommended. I had the smoked Turkey sandwich with homemade chips and coleslaw. The portions were huge! The smoked Turkey may have been the best I have ever eaten. There were several different sauce choices. The rest of my family thoroughly enjoyed their meals as well. If you are in the Boone/Banner Elk area, you must go!

The place we were staying recommended this restaurant. Upon entering, we noticed a lot of Boston memorabilia. Our waiter promptly arrived at our table. Since my wife is from the Boston area, she asked what the connection was. Other than some of the employees being from the Boston area, Bobby Orr had frequented the place. Our waited made some recommendations from the menu. I had a calzone. It was huge and excellent. I took leftovers back to enjoy for lunch the next day. I definitely recommend this place.

Came here in leaf season. Was able to get a reservation a few hours in advance. I have been coming here for 20 years and I always get a delicious well prepared meal. Tonight we got jambalaya and crawfish . Both were absolutely fabulous! The wine selection is also great. The meals are pricey but it is consistently great. No surprises for an elegant meal!
