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 food was very good as is typical. The bread for the table is a favorite. The service was slightly inattentive.

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.

We always enjoy our visits to Amosphere! Wonderful brunch today. The mussles and salmon salad were fabulous! We love everything they have on the menu. That's why we go so often.

We were quite pleased with Atmosphere. Our server was wonderful and very knowledgeable of the menu and wine selections. Valet parking was a nice touch. The culinary crew were "spot on" and every one of us enjoyed our appetizers and meal choices. We will most definitely return!

Second visit to Atmosphere and the experience was wonderful. I didn't get the name of our French server, but he was charming and helpful and very friendly. I appreciate this type of service that isn't overly intrusive but he provided very good advice on the menu items. The food is beautifully prepared and plated. The half price bottles of some wines was a welcome surprise. This is the type of dining experience I have had dozens of times throughout France and the ambiance of the small house made the dinner exceptional. I will gladly return whenever I can.

I will start by saying that the food at Atmosphere is very good. I had a beet salad and red fish special. Both were delicious. They sat us in the back room of the restaurant in a corner and it was so dark I really couldn’t see anything on the menu without the phone on my flashlight. I like dim lighting but this was downright dark and depressing. The thing that really got me was we asked our waiter for our food wine recommendation (red,dry) and he said I have just the one for you. Mistakenly we didn’t ask price and we got two glasses of $22/glass wine for me and my husband. Way more than I would ever spend on a glass and I feel like he should have told us! It really made me mad. Then he seemed irritated when we went to the $10/glass wine. We just went out for a Saturday night dinner and ended up spending over $200 for dinner.

I have eaten here many times and always enjoy the wine and food, but this was my first visit to
the wine tasting. The entire presentation was excellent, informative and lots of fun.

Not impressed. There was no greeting when we entered ,even though I designated that it was our anniversary. Then, the brunch menu has limited options for vegetarians. Again, I noted that I was vegetarian on my reservation notes. Through several discussions (some not so helpful or compromising), I was told rather briskly that the chef can do “one” dish for me. Like my request was being an imposition to this restaurant. No doubt that I have gotten better service and friendliness elsewhere. So sad.

Thank you for your review. At Atmopshere we strive to provide excellent service to all of our guests and make accommodations whenever possible. Over the years we have served hundreds of vegetarians with dishes directly from our menu and if still nothing is pleasing to the guest we will make something special for them. This is what Chef Adam did for you that day. Next time, please take advantage of our “Special Request” policy. With a week’s notice we will prepare any dish for at least two.
