AMAZING place to hold a wedding reception! Food was out of this world and so was the service! My guests are still talking about how fabulous it was! Great view of downtown too
Artista is a beautiful restaurant with excellent food and service. Unfortunately, the Cordua Catering company event coordinator Laura Pfister did not match the quality and service of Artista. She was responsive, but would take at least a week to respond until we had to send another email or phone call to remind her. She repeatedly made mistakes like misspelling my name, miscounting chairs, and misquoting prices. At the end of our wedding night, when we were given the final bill, they were thousands of dollars off because the deposit and last two payments were not included. Not only that she wasn't even there at the end of the night and we had to have the restaurant call her to figure out what had happened to the bill. Though she says she has years of experience, she made way too many mistakes, and I felt that I could not trust her with our wedding. I hired a 3rd party wedding coordinator to ensure everything would go smoothly instead. Artista is a beautiful place to have your wedding reception, but I recommend you request another event coordinator to handle your wedding.
We had a magical reception at the Artista Restaurant (located inside the Hobby Center). My husband and I looked at tons of venues and really weren't sold 100% on any of them. However, once we saw Artista, we knew we had found the perfect spot. The restaurant has floor to ceiling windows that overlook the city skyline, creating a spectacular view. In addition to the view, the restaurant is beautifully decorated with plush cream seats, elaborate candelabras and sconces, and luxurious drapes. With the beautiful decor, the restaurant does not require a large amount of additional decorating, which saved my husband and I a ton of money. Laura Pfister was a great catering manager to work with. She was always there to answer any questions we had and give us sound advice. In sum, the Artista was an absolute fabulous venue to hold our wedding reception.
We had a wonderful rehearsal dinner at Artista downtown. The ambiance was wonderful. The food was outstanding. And the acoustics were good with a microphone. Our guests had a great time and got to enjoy a fun cocktail hour followed by a fabulous meal. I would highly recommend it.
