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.

Everything was amazing. First time dining there, felt very cozy, and loved the European ambiance. Loved the fish, the scallops and the octopus. Had such a lovely evening and all the food was delicious!

Authentic French cuisine and reasonably priced wine list.
Everyone could find something good from the menu. Especially recommend the octopus with avocado for the starter and the duck as the main course.

Met friends for dinner. Food was lovely & delicious as always. Ambience was excellent. Great live music, and full restaurant! Waiter was extremely rude on multiple occasions. When we asked very politely if our appetizers were out (1 hr & 15 mins after we ordered them) mentioning we were getting pretty hungry, the waiter snapped back that he’d been there longer than us and hadn’t eaten all night. There were a few more instances like this. Very rude and not an attentive waiter.

I was very leased when my business date suggested Anis, as I had not been there in years. It is a great, local, neighborhood gem of a french spot, and we were all very pleased. The valet is a HUGE plus in this neighborhood, and all staffers were pleasant and professional. We were all very pleased with the food selections, and the quality was satisfactory. The soup of the day and mussels were standouts.

Hidden gem tucked in between Buckhead and Garden Hills. Lively, but still cozy enough to have a conversation. Food, service and value were all excellent. Good seafood choices as well.

This place is not “gourmet greatness”, it’s comfortable, consistent and delicious. Food is always perfectly prepared and wonderful. Service is friendly, knowledgeable and timely. Ambience is wonderfully quaint and old-world. I’ve been here a bunch of times and truly love coming here.

Wonderful Easter brunch! Although we did have a reservation it was a busy day and we still had to wait 30 minutes. The hostess was great and she did manage to update us and check in until the table was ready. We had a lovely meal- food and atmosphere was exceptional. Perfect!

Easter brunch was a huge disappointment. We booked through Open Table so didn’t know until we got there that they were having a buffet and the menu wasn’t available. The food was ok but it’s not what we wanted. We paid a lot of money for not what we wanted to eat!

They have converted an old house into a great little French restaurant.

We had a bottle wine with our cheese plate and the tomato salad. Dinner was trout and salmon and we finished with a shared desert . The food and service were great and we enjoyed being on the porch overlooking Buckhead.

The food is always good. This time we were rushed for the first 2/3's of the meal. The waiters were constantly removing our plates when all 3 of us were not done. This was so different from our last visit there.

We tried this restaurant because of the Atlanta Dining Passbook. Ignoring the fact that we were seated in a table shoved in the corner of the patio against their back window, when there were plenty of other table open, our dinner started off promising, with my husband’s salmon carpaccio appetizer being a very pleasant surprise. I’m not big on seafood and even I enjoyed it. However, the meal was downhill from there. My husband ordered the boeuf au poivre, medium, but instead was given a filet that could only be described as *very* rare. We could have dealt with that if our server had come back to check on us in a timely manner, and taken the steak back to be cooked a little more, but she didn’t come back again for almost 30 minutes, by which point the steak (and the rest of my husband’s food) was cold, and his appetite gone. My meal was also extremely disappointing. I’m newly vegetarian, and I realize that French food isn’t the most vegetarian-friendly cuisine, so I don’t fault the restaurant for not having enough options for me to choose from. But the veggie plate I did offer was a medley of dry and flavorless vegetables, to the point where it was difficult to eat.
