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.

Had a $50 gift card and tried this for the first time. Pricey so good thing. Server was friendly and knowledgeable. Decent martini. Food was very good. In fact best pork chop I ever have eaten. Very good trout dish and mussel appetizer. The recommended dessert was impressive however. That and the price is the only reason this is not a 5 star.

My dish - tuna, that I often get was not very good. Slightly fishy and grainy. Not like it usually is. Still pink on inside, but almost over cooked on outside... not the right balance and freshness.

Anis is reliably excellent since it opened. We love to return. The only drawback is the high noise level.

Everything was perfect with a minor exception of one under seasoned side dish (gingered cauliflower). The escargot, calamari, salmon, chicken, salads, and soup du hour were all really fabulous. The chocolate mousse and creme brûlée were tasty and rich but perfectly not too sweet. Service was great even though it was a very busy and crowded Christmas Eve. I don’t know how Anis pulled it off.

20 years and counting celebrating anniversaries there (unfortunately, missed just a few in between) - Anis always delivers!!!
GREAT service as always - food is outstanding. Duck Breast was perfect, Steak as well, and Mussels will always be the best anywhere.
Thanks to Anis for sticking around and continuing to give us an iconic reminder of Buckhead's Glory Days in a contemporary Atlanta.

Beth our Server was poor. Lacked finesse and professionalism. Did not understand food allergies and treated it like a fad and not a serious medical condition which can become a medical emergency if not addressed correctly. She had a condescending tone. Was not familiar with the food and wine menus.

We LOVE this place!! It was a bit nippy this evening and there was live music like all Thursdays so we moved inside. We shared Coquille St Jacques and escargot for starters and our entrees were the fabulous pork chop, two orders of salmon and short ribs...each one really tasty. We threw caution to the wind and finished with the bread pudding and waddled out. We'll be back soon. Merci!
