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.

Multi repeat customers. Always joined by our Lab in the outside dining area. Staff are always friendly. Valet parking is worth it. Never had Halibut. Very good. Coming back.

We've been regulars but this is second time the food was unimpressive. We will not return quickly. So many other choices in Atlanta. Not good to rest on laurels.

Anis never fails to please, especially with such wonderful service - attentive and informative yet not pushy and the trout is still outstanding. The noise level for this visit was too high as there were two large tables near us and the rest of the patio was packed - on a Tuesday night. Thought we could handle it at a corner table but still very loud for the four of us. We will go back though.

Almost all of the dishes can be made gluten free. Good selection of French wines by the glass. The service was kind, fun and attentive. We had a very enjoyable experience here. My husband is not gluten free but I have to eat gluten free - we both enjoyed our meal very much. It is so nice to have several gluten free choices!

Made reservation for 2 ahead of time and we were seated next to the kitchen (busy traffic in and out) which we were not comfortable with... the guy offered to find us a table somewhere else and sat us in a cramped corner. He never came back with the table he promised.
Food was okay, we both ordered the chicken and salmon which were well-cooked but somewhat bland in taste.
Our server was friendly and attentive which made the night pleasant.
Probably won’t come back.

Consistently very good with some dishes being outstanding. I call this French Country cooking - flavorful with decent portions. I had the tortellini and brisket which was tasty and filling. My friend started with the octopus salad which was outstanding and had the halibut special which was also very good. She had a dessert sampler and I had the chocolate mousse which is great for chocolate lovers! I love that I can walk to this restaurant.

Great neighborhood spot. We took a group of 7 — fun casual outdoor seating on a warm night. My seared tuna was delicious; the duck that was ordered by 3 ppl was quite salty. Wine list was robust. It’s a fairly vibrant scene, not a place for quiet convo (at least not outside). Fun and worth a try.

My boyfriend is French and thought it reminded him of home. It's hard to please him but he said everything from the menu selections to the wine to the citroen out front were very authentic. He even squeezed the bread and laughed saying "Now that is how bread should be." We will definitely be back!

My Vegan friends were disappointed in the food choices. Restaurant very loud but maybe it was because I have never sat inside before. Outside dining much more pleasurable. service good. Would probable try this again at a less popular time.
