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.

Very disappointed in our dinner last Thursday eve. My fish was served cold and dry. There was supposed to be a pomegranate sauce on top of fish but it did come plated with the sauce. The white beans were still crunchy and almost raw, served cold as well. My husbands steak was tough and chewy. The couple we treated to dinner simply pushed their food around their plate. It was embarrassing. Overall terribly disappointed and it was very expensive. On a good note, the jazz trio was really good 🤪

The food was very tasty and I would definitely go back to try another plate. The service was mediocre though. We were the first table seated inside and getting our waiter to take orders took longer than it should have. I was also very disappointed to find out that the brunch menu is only available on Sundays. When looking at the menu online, I didn’t see this indicated anywhere.

Very hippy and french country looking deco. Food was very nice and service was quick, but the table was barely 20 x 20". Everything on the table when we were served dinner was about to fall on the floor. There are bigger tables for more than 2 people, but it just too small for having dinner. It maybe ok just for coffee or wine. Sitting on the porch on a hot summer day was a mistake. Not enough fans to generate cool breeze. It was miserably too hot to have a dinner.

Waiter and bar tender were very knowledgeable on French wines. Waiter was very personable and gave very helpful recommendations on food. We like to share meals and they charge a very minor split plate charge and we didn't have to hassle with splitting the food ourselves. The covered patio dining was a great atmosphere and very comfortable. We had a great time!

Delightful alfresco dining. The moules frites are excellent as was the always delicious salmon over risotto. A desert medley of fruit and ice cream topped off a wonderful Friday night meal. A highly recommended spot for us locals.

Cozy little spot in Buckhead with attentive service. However, food was not as remarkable as my first visit - we both had salmon and creme brûlée and caramel creme...quality was something we could have found in average American restaurant, nothing remarkable.

Whenever we are traveling through Atlanta we always make a point to stop for dinner at Anis Cafe. I found a recommendation several years ago and it has been a keeper. In a quirky house in a gentrified neighborhood, don’t know know how long it will last, everything being leveled and high rise buildings in it’s place. Always some fish on the day’s special that I’ve never heard of, but always delicious.

As always, the food and service was excellent. The tuna was perfectly prepared and the trout was delicious.
The only downside was the noise level.

Do not sit on patio on warm summer nights - too hot and seating is cramped, crowded.

The food is usually good at Anis. That’s about it.

I have been many times - last visit we had average food and not great service. It was too loud and hot on the patio. The decor needs some attention.

Anis needs to update its seating/tables/ interior, update the menu, and train its servers for an enjoyable customer experience. The chef is already good, but the whole picture gets clouded by a lack of attention to detail by management.

Excellent lunch .... unfortunately there was a large party that came in at the same time and the restaurant was pretty full so the waitstaff were a little overwhelmed but very pleasant. Overall we would recommend Café Anis as we've eaten here many times before and always had delicious food and a great experience.

We discovered Anis Bistro through Open Table and drive over 2 hours one way to celebrate special occasions. We celebrated our anniversary there and the fun, casual atmosphere of this old house in Buckhead offers the options of outdoor dining under a canopy year round or indoors. The food is always creative and the service is friendly. We wish it were closer to us and we'd visit at least monthly.

I was looking forward to coming here because I have heard nice things. But the food just wasn't worth the money. The scallops were grittyand awful. We returned 2 meals, which we never ever do. The server, Chris, was fantastic though. For that money though, we could have gone to The Optimist.
