About Anis Cafe and Bistro

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.

Always, always a great dining experience at Anis. Rock solid, phenomenal food, excellent wine list. Terrific meal with wonderful bottle of wine for two of us, came in at $105 before tip. We shared the mussels, scallops, smoked salmon and mergez sausage appetizers -- more than enough food for us both.

My wife and I decided to go there on Valentine's day. Such a cute and quaint place. We loved the friendliness of owner, staff, and valet. The food was good, but I have to admit the fixed Valentine menu was sub par. The appetizer was not very good. HOWEVER, the main course (steak and salmon courses) were out of this world.

Anis Cafe' is one of our favorites. We live in Roswell so a bit out of the way but worth the trip for special occasions. The servers are always friendly, efficient. French cuisine! What else can I say.

Anis is one-of-a-kind -- a restaurant with soul, French personality and quirkiness that defy its Buckhead location. The food is consistently high quality -- great drinks, too!

I've been here multiple times and was always impressed by the food and the service, however, this night, everyone's meal was good, but I don't think anyone would say it was memorable or outstanding. We could say the same for the service. Nice, polite, but not very attentive.

Both of us had the quiche of the day with spinach.
It was outstanding. Also Tomato soup was very good.

Noise is always an issue because I have a hearing problem.
Had to be moved from upper level of dining because of a loud
ladies' luncheon. Not your fault, just loud women.

You never have failed to please me.

It was all wonderful with the exception of the chairs—-they really need to be replaced. I sank down in the cushion all the way to the wood inside the seat, and it was not comfortable.

Holy brunch the menu was great. They need to update their online brunch menu because we almost didnt go. Good thing we tried it because the menu was rather expansive. Crepes, omelettes, sandwiches, other specialties. Enjoyed the cocktails as well. Will be back fro brunch.

Anis must be missing their French chef? This restaurant is normally superb, but the soup needed a few more hours on the stove (and was tasteless). The server kept calling us "guys" and her manner was way too informal for a restaurant of this level. I want to go back because I like the atmosphere. We'll see.

we loved it all, except that mom did not appreciate that the wait staff was dressed very casually. I think it may have taken something away from the special occasion and did not match the overall feel of the restaurant.

Fresh delicious food, wonderfully prepared. Service was good, although our server seemed a bit rushed at a time when the restaurant was not full. The menu for brunch is varied, offering lunch fare as well as breakfast items, and the French bread is superb.
