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.

We are here twice during our recent vacation. They have a good beer selection. They are pricey, but we found that most places are in the area. My son had the kids spaghetti & meatballs which was $8.50, but included garlic mozzarella bread. The first night my husband and I had the Formaggio pizza with ham..my husband loved it m, but to me it tasted only like ricotta only and the ham was very minimal. The 2nd visit we had a pizza with ham, onions & mushrooms and it was delicious. The crust on the pizza is really good.

We also had desserts and donuts from the coffee house also located inside the pizzeria, which is all made by the lady who runs it and all was delicious!

We each had starters, salads and mains - a tremendous amount of food for two people, but dinner at home the next day was delicious again. Courtney our server was knowledgeable and friendly. Debbie at the front desk was charming. The food was delicious with many choices which looked tempting. The building is absolutely beautiful with old world charm.

Fellow Floridian behind the scoop to make for great conversation along with flavorful ice cream. This is our for-sure "go to" place to take the kiddo for some delicious eats. Set aside from the main restaurant, and convenient little room holds all the goodness anyone could enjoy. Stop in for some deliciousness!

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.

Stonewalls Restaurant

Reviewed By Rick K - St. Petersburg Florida

Stonewalls stands alone for quality and service in the Banner Elk area. This was our 2nd time dinning at Stonewalls, both times the service was excellent, and our dinners very well prepared. We went in without reservations on Valentines Day, as they did not any reservations available. The owner went out of his way (did not have to - place was busy) to accommodate us. We proceeded to have a wonderful dinner and met some people at the bar, and had a great time. Hard to find a restaurant of this quality in this area.

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.

I saw this on another site and that is why i stopped in. Had a lovely toasted bagel and probably the best coffee EVER. This is a super quaint building with a salon and spa above. Sat outside listened to the music and watched the world go by. The staff did tell us that they would be moving into town ( this was about 3 miles outside Banner Elk) but assured our that all of the charm and the good coffee would remain, but their food offerings would increase. Def worth it for the coffee.
