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!

This is our third visit to Atmosphere since the Virus came into the Country. We feel very comfortable with their precautions and have enjoyed both in restaurant and patio dining. Always great food, service and environment! Thanks to the owners and staff for their efforts.

Our favorite restaurant in Atlanta, we go twice a month, the food is excellent. We dined on the patio which is very pleasant with this nice weather. The road is close by and there is some traffic noise but you get used to it. I'm hoping they expand their menu a bit more after they trimmed it a good bit after being closed. They are good people.

Still our favorite restaurant and the only place we have dined (outside of our home) since COVID 19 began. The patio works out great, tables far apart, food excellent as always, precautions taken by the staff made us feel very safe.

Food was amazing - one of my favorite meals ever. Scallops entree is such a thoughtful, well-balanced meal. Lamb entree was cooked perfectly.

It is on a busy street, so it can be a bit loud if you’re sitting outside, but not enough to detract from the experience.

We’ve been driving pass this restaurant for years and always said we would go. It was my son’s birthday, so I took him and he enjoyed it tremendously...

I’ve already recommended it to a friend.

The current menu is somewhat limited and narrower in scope than we are accustomed to at Atmosphere.

It's our favorite place, authentic French with an American flair at times. (The wife is from France.) Excellent wait staff and proficient bar tender. We dine there twice a month or whenever the mood strikes. Nice ambience, outdoor dining possible, they have done an excellent job with managing current events. I'm already hungry just writing about it. Definitely worth a trip.

Atmosphere has been a favorite of ours for years and never disappoints, including our most recent dinner there. This time we ate on the patio for the first time and, with the exception of some background traffic noise, it was very pleasant. The salmon was excellent.

The manager acted almost annoyed we were coming to his restaurant at 8pm. Very promptly they told us the kitchen was closing at 8:30 and to please have our food and drink order ready when the waiter came back to our table. I understand these are difficult times but that is a little pushy. Needless to say this is the last time I will be going there. Their food is great but I do not care for the French attitude.

Hi, thank you for your review, after some research on the situation, we see that you came in at 8:15pm and we close at 8:00pm. We just wanted to let you know the kitchen was closing soon, so your party could order their 3 course meal. The rainstorm was unfortunately outside of our control, but thank you again for returning our manager's umbrella. We appreciate your feedback and hope to see you again.

Wonderful, cozy place, very French. Even the waitress spoke French. Had a special appetizer of arugula with goat cheese, duck with mushroom raviolis and haricot verts,
and macarons for dessert. My friend had the chocolate cake which was divine.
Great service, atmosphere. Romantic. Patio seating best when evening is cooler.
Highly recommend.
