As always, food and service were top notch. One of our two favorite restaurants in Atlanta.
It helps one's experience if you're willing to share. What I ordered was great, but I got to sample the duck the day after. Wow. Similarly, the piroshgies were great, but the chicken liver pate was spectacular.
Food was authentic and excellent quality. The duck, scallops and cherry tart were some of the best dishes we have experienced anywhere.
This is one of our favorites! Always excellent quality food and service. Love the staff!
Babette’s has consistently been one of our favorite restaurants in Atlanta for 20 years
Great food in an elegant setting with sort of a neighborhood haunt sort of vibe. We're so glad we discovered it.
The mushroom tart was amazing
The pate was well made but not exceptional. The duck was juicy . The sides could have been more generous
The trout was a little bland
The negroni was very good and exact
The Italian wine was mediocre but the pinot noir my husband had was excellent. The apple pie was super
Our server was attentive but not overbearing
We had a good time
After a year of not being able to dine out, it was a triumphant return to Babette’s on Friday. The food and the staff were top notch as usual, Babette’s never disappoints. I’ve been dining at Babette’s for many years and not once have I ever had anything but the best of food and the best of times. They have done a great job of spacing the tables out for COVID safety, all staff wore masks, and they had hand sanitizer at each table. Thank you Marla and staff for a great birthday experience!
No matter what the occasion, a meal at Babette’s Cafe is a marvelous experience. The food is exquisite and the service is always excellent. A real treat and pleasure. One of our favorite restaurants in Atlanta.
Sat on the screened-in porch and with mild weather, was comfortable and pleasant. Food and service was very good. Only suggestion would be to offer more dinner options.
Really great meal with attentive service. We will be back.
Love sitting on the covered back deck
The tenderloin and beet salad were fantastic, and my wife said the sea bass was the best she ever had. The bread and wine (pino grigio) were great too. The staff was warm and pleasant, and the ambience was great, quiet enough to enjoy a private conversation but still lively. People told me Babette's was fantastic, so my expectations were high, but it easily exceeded them. It was one of my best dining experiences ever, possibly the best.
It was a scrumptious dinner in a sweet setting. Everything we ordered was different, but we were especially pleased with our starters: The mussels with strawberry serrano sauce were interesting and so very delicious, and the roasted mushroom tart was simply heavenly.
I have dined at Babette's Cafe a few times over the last 5 years but it has been awhile, with COVID and everything. I forgot how exceptional it is in every way. The food was perfect, we had the seabass and scallops, cooked to perfection, so important with a delicate fish and seafood. We brought our own wine and paid the very reasonable corkage fee of $15, so of course that was exceptional...LOL. Janet, our server was awesome. After introducing herself she shared about the owner, Marla and Babette's history. Janet is attentive, knowledgeable and humorous which added to our lovely experience. Finally, thee décor and ambiance were quite pleasant as well. Thank you for an amazing experience.
This was the most perfect dining experience I have had in quite some time. Everything from the lighting, ambiance, thoughtfulness of the hostesses and wait staff, efficiency of complimentary valet parking, not to mention the delectable dishes. It was wonderful. Would definitely recommend and will certainly return.
What a fantastic dinner. We had several of the Valentine Day specials. The duck was amazing as well as the oysters Rockefeller. The service was excellent.
Wonderful as always!!
Filet is en pointe as usual.
The duck was phenomenal, mussels out of this world and onion rings perfection! The cherry tart topped off a 5-star dining experience!
Babette's Cafe has a nice wine list and the food is excellent...but the service is even better! We've been several times and have never had a bad experience. They are following the Covid guidelines very closely and was extremely appreciated.
Marla always does an exceptional job!!!
Loved it as always!!
Always delicious! Loved sitting in covered porch with heaters. Best food in town!
I love the atmosphere here, very cozy and quiet. The staff was very nice and helpful. The food was great.
Love them. However we had two tables who were loud and talking to each other.
We love Babette’s.
This is one of my all-time favorite restaurants. The food is prepared with care, creativity, and imagination. Service was impeccable!
Very cozy and great food and service
Excellent cuisine and great experiences every time I dine at Babbett’s!
Great food and great service. Only complaint was they ran out of chocolate bread pudding.
Babette's is consistently excellent. Food is fantastic. Servers are attentive. Charming ambiance. Great place to celebrate life and love!
Absolutely wonderful dining experience on the deck! Great food and ambiance
We wanted outdoor dining with the escalating COVID risk and Babette’s were still offering their patio, with plastic sheeting for cold weather and over head heaters. This worked well. Only 4 tables, so we felt safe from other guests. Food excellent as ever with lamb and scallops bring our choice.
Babette's is one of my go-to places, especially if I'm entertaining houseguests. I've been going to Babette's for 20+ years. However, I regret to say, the food on Sunday 1/11-2021 wasn't the best in my many years of experience. Both I and my companion agreed it was "Good" but not great. Perhaps we each just chose the wrong dish. But the veal and the scallops on this day were not up to par. BUT this is not preclude me from considering Babette's one of my favorite restaurants.
We had a party of 6; everyone enjoyed their food and beverages. Outstanding waitstaff service.
The two of us enjoyed our evening at Babette’s. The food was excellent with the flavor of France 🇫🇷 peaking through. An extended stay in Chile introduced us to Aperol Spritz and I was pleased to see on their drink menu. We enjoyed the liver pate as an appetizer. Overall very good flavors in a very pleasant setting.
Great food and service with excellent value. Always a lovely evening. They have kept tables well spaced and require masks when not at your table. They are taking the right precautions to keep us coming back.
