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.

This was my first time eating here and was very pleased. I took a client and she loved the ambience. The food was superb and our waiter could not have been better. The only reason I didn’t give it a five was it was very loud (although candidly we were on the patio outside ) and the portions were a tad on the small side. But honestly the quality of the food was amazing. I’ll be back !

Atlanta has a lot of corporate restaurants and a few chef restaurants, this is the later and it’s wonderful. The moules and frits, and the swordfish special were both a delight. Informal and busy on the porch.

Excellent food, but the entire experience was marred by overcrowding. We went on Mother's Day, a busy time for restaurants, and Anis tried to take advantage of the day by overfilling the restaurant well beyond comfort level to make every last nickel. As a result the restaurant was noisy, service was poor and we had no room to move. It is unfortunate, because we've been there before and liked Anis, but we won't return. Their desire to squeeze every last penny out of the day ruined our entire experience.

Stopped in on a Saturday night to our favorite French restaurant in Atlanta. Both my wife and I decided to have the mussels for our main course. The mussels are outstanding and comparable to those we have had on vacation in Belgium and France. The frites were not up to the same standard unfortunately. Get the mussels but skip the frites.

This is one of the very best restaurants - and probably one of the oldest - in Atlanta! We have been going to Anis for years, and have never had a bad meal, and always excellent service! The owner is always up front greeting and checking on things throughout. Can't say enough good things, but a must if you have not been there!!

Had the Steak au poivre it was delicious. Also had the dessert sampler and a couple of them were literally just a spoonful. Would get a regular sized dessert by itself next time.

We really enjoyed our experience at this funky casual French restaurant. My wife had fish and I had the duck confit and both were prepared very well. We liked the outdoor patio area but found the indoor areas to be nice as well. Service was a little hectic and perhaps a little too informal but overall satisfactory. We would definitely return.

This is a wonderful brunch spot. Mother's Day weekend is especially trying for them I'm sure. We have done this spot twice on the Saturday before Mother's Day. Food is great. French is the word for sure. I'd like to go sometime on a less busy weekend. I'm ready any time! It's just a great place in the Buckhead scene.

The service and ambiance was excellent, such a great place to go on a date (probably not for the first date, unless you really want to impress the other person). Food was okay, really good, but i thought the price is a bit steep. I would come back for a special occasion

Celebrated an anniversary on Saturday night. We were to be seated next to a table with a sheep dog next to one of the members of that party. Wife afraid of dogs and we asked for another location. We were promptly assisted and had an otherwise great time. Still not sure why a sheep dog would be in the restaurant. I did not see a notice of dogs welcome as in other places. If it was a support animal, I did not see any obvious signs that is was a working animal.

Didn’t see the value price vs quality of the food. Duck was too salty, but accompanying veggies had little flavor. Maybe I made the wrong entree choice. Will go back, but no more duck for me.

Anis was my choice for my birthday dinner. We’ve been here many times over the years; brought out-of-town guests. But this evening was a COMPLETE disappointment. The calamari was not good. My truite meunière was dry as wood chips. The asides of roasted cauliflower & fingerling potatoes looked wilted and appeared tossed onto my plate. My son was also disappointed in his beef choice. He commented that it was “ordinary”. Not what we expected & have enjoyed in the past.

I have always enjoyed dining at Anis Cafe. In the past, the food was always very good. However, on my recent visit the food was a disappointing with the exception of the Mushroom Ravioli entree. The service was a bit slow. With that said, I would still recommend Anis Cafe assuming that this last visit was an anomaly.

2 couples, 2 steak specials & 2 fish entrees (1 was salmon, other was fish daily special)

Steaks great but both fish entrees were VERY small - maybe 3-4 oz each. One was served over served like warm, almost cold asparagus & the other fish served over lukewarm shrimp dish.

Had Manager call over who immediately sent over two more dinners & apologized.
