We love Babette's Cafe. Their food and drinks are always wonderful. It is an intimate, romantic spot. Put it on your list!!!
This a a gem of a restaurant. Great place for a date or an evening with friends. Portions are a perfect size for us. Try the mushroom tart appetizer - delightful!
Loved this restaurant. 5 star service and food from the minute you enter. Very cute, cozy, charming and unpretentious bungalow type house with great food and friendly staff that will exceed your expectations.
The food and service are so reliably good, it’s no wonder that Babette’s Cafe remains such a favorite among loyal diners who know it. It’s my go-to restaurant for business meals, weekdays and weekends.
After all these years, still a great meal. Recommend for a great night out.
Wonderful experience as always. We had some very noisy diners near us that no one could help but that did lessen our experience and we had a cracked water glass; aside from that, everything was Marla perfect.
One of our favorite restaurants in Atlanta! Wonderful place for date night. 😃
Great evening. Food was fantastic.
This is a fantastic restaurant! The food was great and the service was outstanding! Highly recommend visiting Babette’s Cafe.
Simply always perfect!
My girlfriend and I went to Babette’s for Valentine’s Day. We’d never been before, but had read very positive reviews.
We were SO HAPPY we chose this restaurant for the evening. The place was packed, but had a very mellow and relaxed vibe. Not loud, but not stuffy either. Just romantic and chill, like a quiet French bistro.
The cocktails were delicious, and the food was amazing. We especially loved the Broccoli and Bacon appetizer and the Veal Piccata.
Service was exceptional. We met Babette herself (friendly, humorous), and our waitress Ginger was outstanding. She was super attentive without being overbearing. Anytime we needed her, she appeared instantly.
What a great restaurant. We’ll return soon.
Worth driving 35 miles for the food! European style, meaning portions are smaller so you can eat 3 courses without being stuffed. Good wine selection and professional staff. A deserved good reputation.
Duck is outrageous! Service is fantastic and Marla(owner) is sweet!
I took my wife to Babette's Cafe for Valentine's Day. Absolutely the right choice. The room was inviting, the noise level was quite muted despite the number of people dining, and the food - the food! - was outstanding. The Valentine's Day special was what we both had - lobster ravioli with caviar, and beef wellington. Scrumptious. The dessert my wife had was perfect for her - fresh mixed berries in a merengue nest. She said the chocolate sauce could have been left off to allow the berries to shine through more. My dessert - the apple and walnut tart - was perfection. Not sugary, so it allowed the flavors of the apple and the nuts to pair with the fantastic pastry and unsweeted, "softly" whipped cream, for a subtle and delicious comfort food masterpiece. The cocktails were not as good as we hoped, but nevertheless very nice, with an emphasis on citrus notes. Service was friendly and knowledgable. This was a lovely, romantic treat and we will be back.
Amazing place to enjoy yourself and your friends, family or mate!!
I assume you are reading this review because you are considering a reservation at Babette's Café. Well, just do it - make the reservation and experience a fantastic dining experience!
I dine out often - in my home town of Atlanta and also in other well-known culinary cities. I am stingy giving a 5-star rating, but it was a no-brainer for Babette's.
This was probably my 10th visit here over the past few years. What an exceptional Valentine's Day dinner. Janet was our server (as usual) and was amazing (as usual). It was very busy, but she gave each of her tables outstanding attention and anticipated all needs in advance with a sincere smile and friendly conversation. Marla (the owner) and her kitchen team were at the top of their game. I like how Marla occasionally strolls the dining room visiting with guests and ensuring customers are happy.
This place is cozy, intimate, amazing and welcoming to all. Make that reservation!
good, quiet, and reliable. great neighborhood place for dinner.
We have gone to Babette's Cafe for years to celebrate special occasions. We love it.
Our favorite restaurant in Atlanta. Great location, valet parking, quiet atmosphere, nice clients, fine service delicious food. The prices are a bit high but we live in Augusta where prices are very low. Will come again when next we are in town. Perry Smith M/General USAF (ret.)
Wonderful boite du quartier. Give staff a raise. They are great.
Food was typically lovely. The wild mushroom and duck ravioli was a delicious treat.
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner here. Great food, service and atmosphere. Noise level so low you can actually talk with your dinner partner.
Curated cocktail offerings expertly prepared. Try the Corpse Reviver #2 - they are very good here. Comfortbly portioned dinner offerings - the lamb chops are US raised and exceptional in flavor and tenderness. Veal and capers is pungent and flavorful. Wine list is adequate, desserts exceptional.
The food was awesome as always. Janet was a wonderful server. It was a lovely evening!
We had a lovely birthday celebration dinner at Babette's. Our meal was sumptuous, the ambience was as comfortably classy as we had remembered it, and our server was cheerful and attentive with a delightful sense of humor.
Anniversary dinner- always wonderful good & attentive service!
Very good French style preparation. Decent wines. Good for intimate dinners.
My spouse and I have dined at Babette’s a few times. We love the restaurant. It is one of our favorite restaurants. As usual, the food was great. This time, our server wasn’t warm and attentive like previous servers. He wasn’t welcoming at all. Also, he accidentally hit me in the head while serving the table next to our table. I understand accidents happen and maybe he was new/unfamiliar with the spatial limitations. But this was he first time I was hit in the head by a server. It was a solid hit, not a light touch.
This was a special occasion, as we were celebrating my husband’s birthday. Other than the food, there was nothing special about our dining experience. I attribute our experience to our server.
We are blessed to have such a great choice of quality restaurants in Atlanta. From neighborhood family "comfort" food places to ethnic experiences to nationally renowned and ranked epicurean delights.
Tonight I took my mom, dad, and Teri to one of our favorite special occasion places, Babettes Cafe. I had some special requests which the fulfilled admirably. Our server, May, knew the menu and was able. to help my Dad decide between the lamb chops and the cassoulet. He chose the cassoulet and loved it. Mom had a salad and roasted cauliflower and bacon, Teri had the scallops and home-made fettuccini and cleaned her plate while she raved over the perfectly seared scallops. I had the veal piccata with a side of onion rings. The veal piccata was everything I expected but the onion rings were the best I've had in 30 years! When it came time for dessert, May, again came through and enticed my Dad with their chocolate bread pudding. Great atmosphere, great service, and great food make for a great dining experience. A consistently outstanding restaurant.
Good was amazing as always. Consistently a great meal. Thanks!!
Very cozy and intimate to celebrate our anniversary. We have made this an annual affair. Service was great and we both loved our wine choices. My wife was particularly fond of her veggie platter. My seafood dish of scallops and pasta was also very good.
Babette's is our go to place for any special occasion, and they do not disappoint. From our cocktails to our dessert, everything was wonderful. It is a neighborhood gem!
We’ve dined at Babette’s for years & have never been disappointed. Our most recent dinner was no exception. The winter menu has some great additions/tweaks & the service is friendly and polished.
As always, Babette's has an outstanding combination of food, service and ambiance. I've never had a bad meal or bad service here. Highly recommended!
Everything was great here! The flourless chocolate torte with the Mandarin sherbert was especially yummy at the end of the meal!
Somehow we had missed going to Babette's Café all the years it has been open. Our first visit did not disappoint. We could have enjoyed a meal on the French bread and appetizers, but certainly enjoyed the lamb, a chocolate martini, and a bottle of red Bordeaux. We will be back soon!
A solid, comfortable place for dinner. Nice to go to a local establishment that still has local character. Food was terrific. My wife had the veggie entre and was estatic over how well and diverse the plate was.
The food was served attractively and the taste of the food was incredibly good. My date had the veal and I had the cod. It was properly seasoned but the spices were not overwhelming ........... just perfect. Both meats were not over cooked or under cooked, but were were done just right. ( It is beginning to sound like Goldilocks is writing this review.) The service was excellent. The restaurant is nicely decorated and we could hear each other without yelling or asking each other to repeat what was just said. This is one of our favorite places to eat for all the reasons I have noted above.
I felt a bit rushed initially by our server - odd since we were there at 5:30. But it was a small thing in a lovely evening. LOVED our cocktails.
Always a wonderful experience. Consistantly great food and service in a perfect setting. Excellent
menu-always somethings to delight.
