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.

Just love that the sandwiches are on the dinner menu! And they still have wines by the glass at reasonable prices. The food was amazing as always. Salad, croque, etc. - to the table hot and tasty. New heaters on the patio! Toasty warm. Not crowded so extra comfortable.

I brought a friend who had never been to Anis and the experience was underwhelming to say the least. I’m a regular and love the food there, but this night it was ‘meh’ at best.

I can deal with an off night but the service was the really troubling part. From the moment we arrived, the waitress (blonde but don’t recall her name) seemed annoyed and bothered by us. As if we had interrupted her. Very abrasive.

Yes we arrived at 8:15 on a Sunday night but were surprised when they began shutting down the restaurant all around us, while we were eating! I understand people may have wanted to go home but by 9:15 they were practically clearing our plates mid-bite..... they shouldn’t have accepted a reservation if they wanted to close at that hour.

Anis has traditionally been my hidden gem to bring people to, but doubt I’ll do that again given the recent experience.

It has been over a year since we have been able to visit Anis and having the chance to have dinner was well worth the wait. Everything was delicious! My 9 year old ate escargot and used some bread to wipe every last drop of sauce. Thank you for this nice evening!

We enjoyed our meal at Anis Cafe and Bistro. The small place is a little out of the way so you'd have to be looking for it to go there. Street parking is available and we had no trouble. I don't know what it would be like in busier non-Covid times. They were doing outdoor porch seating with heaters, but it was still too drafty for me so they moved us to one of the few socially distant indoor tables. It is really a darling place with artwork all over the walls, like a French "salon". The food was very good. Hats off to the chef. I'm sure it's difficult to prepare a menu these days when so few people are dining out. We had a beautiful seared tuna over a melange of bok choy, purple potatoes and mushrooms with a citrus vinaigrette. The other dish was pan-roasted salmon and Roquefort risotto with julienne endive, pear and saba vinegar. For dessert we indulged in the Gateau au Chocolat - rich and delicious without being too sweet. Well done.

We had dinner New Years Eve so there was a set menu. I ordered the duck and my boyfriend ordered the salmon. Both were delicious! Dessert was also fantastic! The soup was a combo squash/lobster bisque... I wasn’t crazy about it, I like both, just not together.
The restaurant is small and kinda loud but overall we enjoyed it and will definitely go again.

Definitely do not opt to sit outside if it is cold. We were placed in a corner where there was no heat and it was below freezing and the cold air was circling around our table. We had to wear our coats to dine. There were a few open tables near large heaters when we arrived and we were not seated there. We did have a reservation. The table was far too small for 4 adults and also was not level. We had to worry about our drinks falling over which was annoying. Service was super slow which was disappointing. We have dined here a few times and have always been pleased but this was a miss. The food tasted good so we would go back but would sit inside and hopefully get better service. Ambience is charming but not at a tiny table with freezing cold air! I would still recommend it to friends as we have traveled in France and this place is authentic.

I liked this experience. The food is creative and well prepared. The tables and chairs are neat and varied. There is no "cookie cutter" ways of doing things here. This is a unique place to visit and dine. The staff was good and seemed to care. I liked the menu and also the specials. The parking is quirky. I suggest you find your way to be back of the building where we found plenty of parking available. Tricky parking on the street in that area, but you might have to.

Neat place and you should give it a try.
