Love Love Artisanal, it's like this lovely and casual bistro I always wanted to find and finally did - with a strong emphasis on cheese, albeit on the loud side. You can't go wrong with their cheese selection - the cheese fondue is always fun and delicious, as is their cheese puffs, and you should definitely round out the 'cheesy' evening (well, depends on how you look at it) with the cheese plate for dessert. They also have a nice wine selection I recall, although I don't usually go that route.
Love the rich onion soup, and if you get a main, I suggest the chicken under a brick. My favorite fondue is the Stilton.
The food is good, but I have always found the service there terrible. Sit near the bar and be prepared to have to flag down one of the many, many waiters.
Wines by the glass are good, though and I liked the fois gras pate.
