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.

When a restaurant throws away your 1/2 eaten dinner that you wanted boxed up , they should make it right. Don’t come to our table and say “Well what do you want me to do about it?”. Many great dinners and evenings spent at Anis were lost last night.

I have eaten here many times over the years. But the last two times the food was disappointing. The bread was dry, the puff pastry crust on the quiche doesn't work, overall not there best work. The server looked put out when we asked what the specials were, he was slow to come around, forgot items. Overall a disappointment.

Every dish they prepare is delicious, we’ve been there many times and have always been overwhelmed with the complexity of flavors and richness of the food. The most recent visit was on a Sunday night and the service seemed a little rushed and abrupt. They weren’t busy and the food was prepared quickly, it just seemed as though the servers weren’t as polite and friendly as usual. I’ll keep going though, the delicious food is worth any service error they could make.

This was certainly not a first time, but it never disappoints. We find Sunday lunch to be the perfect time to visit with friends, have a great bloody Mary, and enjoy the ambience of this wonderful spot.

The only suggestion we would make is that you consider moving your menus to something you can scan and open with your phone.

I went for brunch with my mom. It was pretty busy when we got there and took us a few minutes to get seated with a reservation. It took awhile for our food to come out but when it did, it was worth the wait. My mom really enjoyed the food and wine selection so dining here was a success. Our experience would’ve been better with a more attentive service.
