Met up with some friends at Artichokes the other night after receiving a gift card for Christmas. I used to go here all the time when it was in Malden. I think my family and I used to go at least once a week because we were obsessed with the food. When I first sat down, I was sad to... More

Artichokes doesn't sound like a great Italian place, however, it is. The food is absolutely great and we go there about once a month to enjoy it. The prices are a bit high, however, once you sit down and enjoy their fabulous food, you realize it is definitely worth it. Enjoy!

There were four in our party. We arrived at opening because we wanted an early evening because the next day was going to start early and go long. It seemed to have thrown them a little, because the chef and staff hadn't finished their meeting yet. But we were welcomed and treated to a lovely table by the window. We... More

I love the mozzarella and tomatoe salad always enough for two to share. Food is always so fresh tasting. Lobster tail desert is to die for.

Waitstaff need better people skills - doing them a favor eating here and spending your hard earned money. Food is tasty but in my opinion overpriced. After a few visits decided the atmosphere and the lack of politeness wasn't worth giving this restaurant another try.

Let me preface this with the fact that I am not a baby lover. i like MY child. I arrived at 5:30 on a Saturday with my Mom and my daughter who is 18 months. She has been raised going to restaurants so she knows how to act appropriately. I was received with a horrified look...Oh, you have a BABY!?... More

I asked for shaved parmesan and a small bowl of grated was brought to the table. I again asked dor shaved and a small block... More

Went for dinner. Staff was rude. took left overs home, not sure why. It wasn't very good. It didn't really matter because it was another tables food. Very pricey also.
