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.

We always enjoy dinner at Anis, but usually only come on special occasions. It's a little pricey and entree portions are small. The food is always very good and the ambiance on the outdoor patio is very pleasant and relaxed. The staff is attentive and welcoming.

Anis is a recognized "go-to" spot for French dining. There are several specialties that are loved, including the "moules". Baggettes are excellent. And I love the outdoor garden for dining. The main courses are usually very good as well.

Very good classic French food. Duck confit was as it should be, great mussles, very good calamari. We also had the trout meuniere and the Mahi special. All was very good but the service didn't match the food. It was just the bare minimum for service.

Excellent French restaurant. They struck the perfect note with French cuisine combined with a relaxed attitude. For vegetarian diners, although most of the dishes were fish or meat the menu noted that vegetarian dishes were available on request. Our waiter patiently listened to our dietary restrictions and recommended dishes that we could enjoy.

We will definitely be back.

As always... Anis Cafe delivers an excellent meal. The service is always the best with a super friendly and well trained staff. I usually get the appetizer size Mussels as my main course. They are always fresh and delicious. This time I ordered Plat de Charcuterie as my main course.... delicious!! My husband always orders the Salmon and it is excellent!! Their Creme Brûlée is always a winner to complete a good meal. Anis cafe continues to be one of our favorite places to eat here in Atlanta.

I have been to Anis several times as we enjoy the venue and music on Thursdays but was very disappointed with my meal during the last visit. Ordered special which was not very good. Their food quality seems to be inconsistent every visit and not sure we will go back.

Anis never disappoints. The trout is my mainstay and the house salad which is light and delicious. Our friends had the vegan pasta and the salmon and both enjoyed their dinners. The restaurant is loud so I requested a back corner table and that helped so much. There was a small band playing on the other side of the restaurant but thankfully not loudly. Tried a dessert this time, the creme brulee and it was excellent.

We go to Anis for all of our special occasions. The food is always fantastic! I recently had their catch of the day Grilled Halibut with shrimp watermelon salad with a lemon vinaigrette. It was just right and very refreshing. Our only qualm is that they don't serve their pear/apple tart on their dessert menu.

We were disappointed. Food was OK but mediocre and overpriced. Portions were small. Restaurant assets are worn out - chairs with no cushion left, beat up tables, etc. Service was slow and not very energetic. Paying $30+ for an entrée and having the server say to save your silverware between courses is not acceptable. Dessert (chocolate mousse) and wine (moderately priced selection we made against the server's recommendation) were the bright spots.

My mom’s favorite French bistro in Atlanta. Took her for Mother’s Day dinner and I had never been. Adorable table for two on the patio, beautiful neighborhood and the design was uniquely decorated. The service was prompt, courses came out in in a timely fashion. Never felt rushed or cramped in our table. It was a perfect evening.
