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.

Overall the experience was very good as usual but it was also really loud as usual. Perhaps some form of acoustic dampening would be in order (they are a few techniques) because often for many of us the company and conversation is as crucial to the experience as food, service, ambience, etc.

I was extremely disappointed when we were seated as my husband and I had a direct view to the kitchen. I could understand if we were a late arrival but we were one of the first guests to arrive in the dining room and had made reservations. Unfortunately the seating really ruined the meal. I felt as though we were treated like second class citizens. We had dined there previously in the garden area during the summer and enjoyed the ambiance then. We are frequent visitors to Montpellier and had heard the owner was originally from there.

We went there for my husband’s 65th birthday with great friends.

He especially loves Anis’ mussels and their filet au poivre.

Great service, quality and menu.

We’ll be back again and again!

Cozy and quaint. Attentive but not intrusive service. Delicious food with good crunchy bread provided. Lots of entree options, but not overwhelming. Even the hot tea I ordered at lunch on a cold day was excellent!

We were very disappointed. We were there on a Sunday evening, and maybe that contributed to the problems. We ordered the special: halibut with Israeli pasta salad. The fish smelled fishy, like it was old. Halibut is such a mild white fish, but the smell was off putting. And the fish was very overcooked and dry. I couldn’t eat it. Plus, there was only 2 tbsp of the salad served w the fish. Someone else in our group asked the waiter for more, and he said the kitchen was out of the salad. It was clear that we had been served the dregs — the last of a special that had been offered for several days already. I won’t be going back.

This is just the a wonderful setting and the patio is so adorable - feel like you are in Paris! The service isn't what it used to be - the servers are just interested in turning the table and getting the food out which is disappointing. Food is good - not great but what a fun place to eat with a special friends. Management needs to get the service stepped up a bit - cut the rudeness - weren't not in Paris!

My relationship with Anis is just about at an end. The last 3-4 times I've dined there I've been waited on by slovenly waitstaff that is sometimes borderline rude. While I love the atmosphere (before it gets too noisy later in the evening...), nowadays it's little more than a simple high-priced bistro where diners are welcome to share dinner with their dogs. (isn't this against the rules?).
I'm afraid $100+tip is just too much to pay for this kind of experience.
