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.

Food was good but when did they start allowing dogs? We had to listen to 3 little dogs, sitting in chairs at a nearby table, yapping through dinner.

The food and service were fantastic! The tables are very close together, so it was pretty loud and a bit difficult to make our way to the exit after our dinner. We'll definitely go back though as everyone in our group really enjoyed their meal.

Food was great as usual! However, the service was nothing like the many other times we have dined at Anis which is one of our favorite restaurants. There was private party on the patio, where we really wanted to sit, and there were on two waiters taking care of the inside dining room plus helping with the party as well. Three tables came and left while we watched.

However, this is one of our favorite spots where we take visiting friends, including this visit with colleagues from Germany. So, we will back and hope that the service improves on our next visit. The food was awesome as usual!

Butternut squash soup was thin and tasted like lemon, totally unlike any butternut squash soup anyone would recognize. Pribably best to ask for a description b4 ordering. Removed from bill after taxed. Was never asked if i would like anything else so a shared mussel apperizer which was good and a house salad was all I ate which was also good and luckily the bread was good too. Maybe an off night??

Everything about Anis Cafe and Bistro was wonderful, our experience was beyond what we expected! The food was amazing, we had the Scallops, Escargot, Mussels and Pork Chop. Our server, Luis, was great and treated us to a Dessert Trio. The setting was quaint and fun. I would highly recommend Anis for any occasion!

Very good French food in a casual atmosphere. Self-parking is scarce, so use the valet parking on the driveway on the right side of the restaurant (that looks like a driveway for a different business, but isn't).

This is a very eclectic restaurant. Tables are close to others. Servers were very attentive. The inside dining is quieter than the closed in patio. The bread was very good, but it would have been nice if the butter was soft. The food was very good; the salmon was delicious. However, salads and vegetables are an additional charge. The restaurant only has valet parking.

Since moving into the neighborhood, people have been raving about this gem. Went for lunch with the husband. This is a great spot for the mature crowd who want to converse & linger. The decor is "eclectic" french bistro . We shared the signature mussels which were plentiful & tasty! I had 4, nicely sized seared scallops over a sauteed rice pilaf affair. Husband had the sausage Maquez which are made of spicy lamb & served with mashed potatoes & a small salad. Everything was very good as was the service. Oh! And the bloody marys were perfect! Will definitely be putting this into heavy rotation.

I hadnt been in for a while, and quite frankly, i was a bit disappointed. Seemed to be a bit "off" ie not as charming or delicious. Still pretty good but I think it needs some refresh of menu and the space.

We chose a beautiful autumn evening to dine in their outside dining area with perfect weather. Our waiter Jeremy was extremely knowledgeable and gave us his recommendations, along with tastes of a couple of different wines before we chose one bottle of white wine. My husband and I shared the scallops, which were melt-in-your-mouth delicious! I picked for my entree the fish special "Wreckfish" on shaved apple/celery slaw, and it was very tasty. My husband picked duck leg confit that he liked very much. We shared the brioche bread pudding, since I am a bread pudding lover. It was a perfect evening, and we are very pleased we dined here and had Jeremy as our attentive wait person.
