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!

Lovely Saturday evening with friends from Italy. Food got rave revues from all. We were seated at reserved time. Smaller room allowed for intimacy and conversation. Our server Chana was an engaging professional young woman who explained every question asked. She presented birthday guest a candled Creve brûlée that was unexpected and appreciated. This is a restaurant the truly desires title “neighborhood gem”.

This small Ansly cottage from the outside surprises once you enter. Everything was amazing. Great service. Great food. Great wine list.

I went here for V-day, it was a fixed menu and not that great. Ended up spending $220 dollars. I was stuck in a room with no windows and the sound just bounced around the room. There was no privacy for my conversation. I will never go back, it was supposed to be romantic instead it was an uncomfortable, hot, okay food, experience. Our waiter was nice though.

Would never come in for valentines. Worse greeting, seating, service. Waitress arguing to each other not wanting to take our table bc it was 930pm. Literally sat there for 10 min until being greeted. When greeted, wasn’t friendly at all. Will not recommend this place to anyone

I’m someone that never leaves reviews but had such a poor experience that felt I should - my husband and I went to atmosphere for a date night and I was super excited to try this romantic restaurant. From start to finish, the food was subpar. The goat cheese salad was just lettuce with a giant clumpy ball of brie wrapped with cold undercooked bacon. The mockfish seafood medley was lackluster in taste and my husbands steak was so salty he couldn’t even eat it. Lastly, our creme brûlée came out and it was ice’s bad when the best part of the meal is the wine. And all of this for $225! We will sadly not be going back to what seemed like such a nice neighborhood gem. Very disappointed.

We were on our Valentine date, and it was a very romantic place. Valet was quick and easy. We had a nice table near the front window. The menu was a special three course meal, and we adored the butternut squash soup and our desserts of creme brûlée and sherbet in vodka, but our seafood entree was very bland. The monkfish was flavorless, even though the shrimp, mussels, and clams were cooked perfectly.
I had been here for lunch a few times, and this was my first disappointment ever, so I will return!!!
Our wine from New Zealand was superb.

The food was not that great and the steak with pepper sauce was an embarassment. The service poor and the set menu for such a special occasion was not a great idea. OVERALL, We Were DISAPPOINTED. NOT SUCH A FRENCH RESTAURANT
