Set in a charming cottage, near Ansley in midtown and only 5 min walk from Beltline access points, atmosphere is a chic bistro that offers more than just a pretty face.
The mood is romantic and mellow cool with soft lighting.
The theme of relaxed, inviting elegance extends to the bar and the patio.
The menu offers great classics such as Escargots in garlic butter, Duck confit, as well as Mussels marinieres or Scallops with mushroom raviolis.
From best French restaurant to best 100 overall restaurant, atmosphere has an impressive collection of awards and "Best of" nominations since its opening in 2002.
No wonder it is rated excellent by Zagat revue and #1 French restaurant in the city.
Atmosphere, finally a bistro that is not just trendy!

The place was pretty empty but they put the three of us in a little round table in an inside wall to wall corner right next to the entrance to the kitchen. The whole lunch I was watching the wall which was only 3 feet away or all the servers in and out of the kitchen. The place has a little old musky smell to it which is not too pleasant.
The mussels and hanger steak were very good! Salmon was very thin and over cooked. Ordered medium rare, served bone dry well done. Most unfortunately that was my guest’s order. Very Embarrassing. It was our first time there and I even told the host how much we were looking forward to the meal. No acknowledgment and not even a welcome. We may come back for the food but probably no guests.

The restaurant is quaint and lovely and the lighting was just about perfect.
It must have been an tough night for the wait staff. The service was extremely slow and when we got our coquilles Saint Jacques it was cold.

The trout almandine and the salmon special were quite tasty.
Usually when we eat at Atmosphere, we sit out in the bar area. This time we were seated in the room directly behind the bar. It is a small room and with three tables filled, it is loud. From now on we’ll ask to sit in the front room.

The whole experience was “par excellence”!! Our waiter was engaging, polite, and very knowledgeable in his suggestions for us when we had queries. A hidden gem for a genuine French epicurean delight. Quite pleased from beginning to end, never feeling rushed so we could savor our meal. This restaurant should not be missed!! On my list of “The Best” in Atlanta.

We dined at Atmosphere for a friends' birthday. The decor, the ambiance, and service were excellent. I was pleasantly suprised by the semi private room for the party of eight. It made the evening so special. The manager agreed to plate a special cake that we brought for the guest of honor. The food was delicious and quickly served. The dimmed lighting was a little dark, but they raised the lighting when requested. A wonderful, memorable evening. It was our first time at the restaurant, but we will definitely return. I recommend highly.
