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!

Food & service were impeccable. Love the European style service they provide. Bar tender was also our waitress. She helped make a great meal into a fantastic experience & even created a "keto" drink to accommodate our keto diet. It's called The 29 (in honor of our celebrating our 29th anniversary) if you want to order it. She modified our menu choices based on our avoiding bread, sugar, carbs.

Party of six. The escargot were excellent, smallish and not chewy. I also enjoyed the carpaccio and recommend using the lemon to cut the olive oil. The food was all very good, as was the wine and the service. It’s a wonderful place for a slower-paced enjoyable evening

We go 2-3 times a month, so we think it's very good. Outside seating is nice, the traffic noise can be a bit of an issue at times. The food is uniformly good in my opinion. The service staff is well trained. We'll be back, soon.

A Midtown staple. Great little bistro. Perfect sitting outside if the weather is nice and quiet inside tables in the renovated house. Food is always very good. Highly recommend.

Our experience at Atmosphere was very nice following a visit at the Botanical Gardens. The food was great and the wine selection for lunch was good. Our server was very accommodating and personable. We really enjoyed our lunch.
Will return for sure!

Atmosphere has not missed a step after the slow period. Best French restaurant in Atlanta, and probably all of Georgia. Great wine list. Try it.

We come here quite regularly. The dishes are authentic, well prepared, and creative. The ambience is very pleasant even when you sit outside with the cars rushing by on the street nearby. The wait staff is always very attentive. Valet parking (required) is only $5.

One of our favorite restaurants. We always celebrate our anniversary here, and in 2020 this was the first restaurant we ate at during the pandemic. The escargot is an absolute must.

In the tradition of fine French dining Atmosphere provides a venue for quiet conversation over traditional French cuisine with impeccable service. The only caution for me is that this is very traditional French cuisine. It is perfectly prepared but there are no lighter, healthier, or lower-fat lower-calorie options. With a slightly broader menu selection, I would eat there more often.

Can't believe it was our first visit. What a nice experience. Michelle was our server and she was terrific. The beet salad was light and simple. The French onion soup was excellent. We had scallops with mushroom ravioli and lamb tenders. Both were delicious. The creme brûlée was, well, creme brûlée. Amazing!

Great Midtown independent, authentic French restaurant. We'll be back.

My wife& I had a delightful meal, and Michelle, who served us, was great. She suggested a nice Sancerre ( 1/2 price wine night on Tuesdays) to go with my wife’s trout almandine. I had the salmon/ artichoke with a roasted red pepper sauce the was fabulous! So nice to have a delightful French Restaurant in Midtown!

The food was great! Our waiter was wonderful and really personable! The only thing was the noise of the traffic. I thought it would be a little quieter. I didn't realize that we would be right next to a busy road if we sat outside. I would go again, but choose indoor seating. A lovely restaurant though! Good food, spirits, and service!
