French
Tucked away in a sleepy side street in the heart of Buckhead, Anis is located in a converted house that has been renovated to look and feel like one of many little charming restaurants that you are likely to find in the Provence region in the south of France.

The menu is deeply rooted in the ingredients and aromas that give dishes from the French Mediterranean region their unique flavors.

Anis is comprised of an inside dining room and an outside patio area that is available for seating year round, and a charming little bar where you may enjoy a meal if you wish.

Widely known as one of the most romantic dining spots in the city, Anis is a great place to meet up with friends and can cater to large parties with ease.

Reservations are accepted and encouraged.

Join us for live Brazilian jazz on Thursday evenings.

Fun lunch and delicious food. I love the Anis Plateau. The only complaint I have is that the hostess was rude. She literally slapped our menus down on the table. Our server, on the other hand, was great.

The food was generally decent, but poorly presented. The beets on which the halibut (daily special) was presented were cold, though the itself halibut was warm and tasty, as was my wife's trout. Our waiter was relatively new to Anis Bistro, but had worked at other restaurants prior to Anis, was not very attentive, and gave us our bill without asking if we wanted desserts, which we did. At this price point we expected better presentation and service.

Having lived in the ATL for 36 years, you'd think we would have found Anis prior to now, but this was the first visit. We love the ambiance and outdoor dining in this unpretentious little gem. We both had halibut that was prepared perfectly, and the creme brule was also excellent, not to mention the cappuccino afterward. Our server was right on with just the right amount of attention. We can't wait to go back!

Wanted to love this place but we barely saw our server all night! It seemed like there was no shortage of staff either. The cheese plate is incredibly little food and was presented on a regular dinner plate. The steak frites was cooked very well and the drinks were good.

My Birthday and Friend's Birthday!!

The food and service were both excellent. The weather was breezy and beautiful, which gave even more excitement to the outside dining experience, especially after being cooped up for months to avoid COVID exposure.

I have been dining there for many years but it was my friend's first time. She couldn't believe there was such a quaint place in Metro. She travels the world in her travel business.

We sat outside in the Indian Summer weather. The wine list was relatively extensive. The escargot, Salade Nicoise, and Quiche were all quite good. There were several birthday parties going on, apparently it is a good place for that. Dog friendly, we didn't have ours but the folks next to us brought theirs.

This is an informal French Bistro and we chose to sit in the extensive outdoor area. The atmosphere outside was very nice but got very noisy as it filled up. The menu has many casual items such as sandwiches with fries and observed many patrons making these selections. We opted to order from the menu of the day board. I order the pork chop which was prepared perfectly but the plate was rather sparse. My wife ordered the soup with salad and enjoyed it very much. Our party of four ordered 3 desserts including profiteroles, chocolate cake and chocolate mousse which were all excellent. The service was excellent. Our server was helpful and attentive but did not interrupt. In all, I recommend this restaurant for casual eating and don't pass up the dessert.

Food was very good, but desserts and drinks, not so much. Cocktails are overpriced and not flavorful. Entrees are worth the trip. Booked for birthday, but not recognized by server.

We had a pleasant experience as usual. Food and wine service were remarkably good and extremely cordial despite the restaurant apparently being a bit short handed. Our dishes were not the best ever but generally tasty & well prepared.
