Dining at Babette’s Café is like stepping into Chef/Owner Marla Adams’ home. She is equally as known for the incredibly creative Rustic French, Spanish and Italian cuisine that she creates, as she is for her welcoming personality. Marla digs deep into the food history and traditions of Europe and brings them to Atlanta with nuance, respect and artistry. For twenty-six years, Babette’s Café has offered the flavor of a restaurant that is tucked into the French countryside. The dining room offers a relaxed setting and the outdoor patio, which overlooks the serene setting of Freedom Park, makes diners forget that they are just minutes away from downtown Atlanta.

Another great visit to Babette's Cafe. Per usual the service was outstanding. Veal and Halibut entrees are highly recommended. This neighborhood gem continues to provide excellent value and ambience for a special occasion or anytime you want to be treated to superior food and drink by true professionals.

We love to revisit Babette’s regularly and often spend a birthday dinner there. Marla offers good variety in menu options, a tasteful balance of flavors and seasonings, and a nice wine list at very fair prices. We’ve never been disappointed and always enjoy the unpretentious, yet elegant, ambiance.

I highly recommend this restaurant. We were entertaining out of town guest and took a chance on this restaurant based on reviews. The location was great, easy to find and they have valet parking. The food and wine were outstanding. The tables were not stacked together so you could comfortably have a conversation without listening to others at the next table. We look forward to visiting again.

A birthday weekend with my granddaughter.
The food and the service were, as always, wonderful. However, we were encouraged to sit outside. The weather was lovely but the ambience was not the same. Especially so with a large table celebrating near us.

Babette's is an old favorite, & never fails to please us & our friends. The bartender is always good-- an excellent Whiskey Sour is always a treat for me-- & we've consistently had good service & pleasing food. I particularly recommend the halibut, any chicken dish they're serving, & the steak. We've never had a disappointment with any of the salads, small plates/appetizers, or desserts. Highly recommend this wonderful restaurant.

My food was not seasoned well, which was a goat pot pie. My date had fish and her meal was ok. Given the price I paid, I do not think it was worth it.

Bebette's Cafe is an outstanding restaurant. The food and service are excellent. I like the restaurant because it is elegant but has a friendly relaxed atmosphere. The menu has a nice variety and it changes during the year. The wine list is very good and the other drink list is excellent. I like to go to Babette's on Sunday night. They have a nice crowd but I have always been able to get a table when I wanted it. I would recommend Babette's both for a special occasion and for a nice dinner out during the week.

Spring menu is out and it's fantastic! Navarin of Lamb was outstanding. Fried oysters and the onion tart were perfect starters. Add cocktails made to order, delicious wine and the best service in Atlanta and it was a great way to end the work day!
