I really can’t praise Babette’s Cafe too highly! Food and service are exceptional! Yes, it can get a bit loud; but whose dinning room when everyone is enjoying themselves is not? Eating there is a luxury.
Outstanding food coupled with attentive and unobtrusive service and reasonable prices. Had the Steak Tartare, the Octopus and the Scallops.
Waited about 15 minutes before being seated. Initial server had a poor attitude and thankfully gave our table up to another server (never had that happen before) and she was fabulous. The food was a solid 3 stars. I've honestly never felt so unwelcome at a restaurant before. Won't be back.
Great food but “patio dinning” is a bust. It was cold and drafty out there and not nearly the same ambiance as the indoor space. Our first time out here and we made the reservation late and we were aware of the limited option and accepted it.
Steven the bartender was great. Waitress, Ginger, was also nice.
Went to Babette’s for my wife’s birthday. I had been there previously for brunch and enjoyed it very much. The crowd was a bit different for dinner. It felt like I was eating in a very old country club. We were bracketed on both sides by multiple people with walkers. The average age in the room had to be 70 with my wife and I bringing down the average substantially at 49 and 39. The food was good but not at the level it needed to be at our 30 dollar per entree cost. Again it felt just a bit dated. The room was fairly loud which we attributed to people not being able to hear that well and dessert which was a bread pudding with banana ice cream was fairly bland. The plus was the server was knowledgeable and attentive. My birthday was two weeks before and she took me to the optimist. I took my wife here for hers and feel i short changed her.
Always a great experience. Marla and her staff is top shelf!
Simply outstanding! Chef/owner Marla has refined the dining experience at Babette’s to a fine art and combines superb ingredients with consummate service and attention to details (ever get a black cloth napkin to cover your dark clothes without leaving lint?) to deliver a perfect meal whatever the occasion.
One of our very favorites! Never disappoints!! Babbette’s food is delicious and the presentation is great!
Excellent food and service in a cozy house setting, which is not too cramped or crowded. The noise level is suitable for a romantic dinner, but not so quiet that business is inappropriate.
1 of the most enjoyable dining establishments in the city. Food, service, drinks, ambiance- all great.
Small rooms, calm, relatively quiet, attentive service, good wines and cocktails, small menu with a nice, diverse selection. This was our second visit, just as delightful as the first time.
I love come to Babette. We had to wait for our 5th person so my steak was a tad overcooked. Then we realized I got the medium and my friend got the med rare. No big deal, it was a perfect evening! Sue valenti
As a regular at Babette's, this visit was perfection, as usual!
Wonderful first time but will go back
The food is very good and the service is great. I would highly recommend Babette's for dinner.
Babette's maintains a high standard of excellence. It is our favorite restaurant for a romantic dinner for two.
Babette's is a consistently good experience. The food is excellent, the staff attentive and the atmosphere warm and cozy. I have introduced many others to it, and no one has been disappointed. Nick Lotito
Everything on the menu is great. I love the piroshki of all irk and veal, but the French onion soup is wonderful and I understand that the beer and cheese soup is coming back. It’s hard to choose, but there are no wrong choices. Just have to visit often.
The food was magnificent! Ginger our server was spectacular. Great ambiance. Excellent wine selection. I highly recommend Babette’s Cafe.
Thank you for the wonderful comments! Will pass these along to Ginger and the rest of the staff. Hope to see you all soon!
A single who sits at the bar and I'm always grateful for restaurants who let their single patrons eat there. Always an enjoyable evening. Babette's long ago became my 'go to' restaurant for excellent food, ambiance and service. The menu changes just often enough and the boutique wine menu, glasses and bothered' is an excellent value. And you can actually get a bottle of good Champagne for $90 or less. For a special occasion, that price cannot be beat. Cheers to a successful 2020!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review! The bar is one our of favorite spots as well, great place for a cozy quiet dinner. Hope to see you again soon.
Great food and ambiance. Will keep coming back.
Would like to make it once a week !!!
We'd love to have you once a week! Check out the bar for a quick and cozy dinner.
Always dependably good and delicious, ambiance always great.
Malcolm, thank you for taking the time to write this review. Always great to have you in.
It is always a treat to dine at Babette's - it's like visiting a friend for dinner - a friend that is a great chef!! We were enticed by the stroganoff special Marla was offering. It was fantastic. We also tried the cauliflower/bacon..mmmmmm. Always a treat and never disappointed.
Thanks Bill! We wait all year for her to run that Stroganoff Special! Hope to see you soon!
Babette’s never disappoints! Everything all 7 of us had was excellent. Especially recommend the scallops, veal, and steak tartare. Excellent server who was very knowledgeable About the menu and the wine list. If you haven’t been, you should go.
Thank you for the great review! Scallops are a staff favorite as well. We will pass this along to the staff and we hope to see you in soon!
Babette’s continues to be the best dining experience in Atlanta! Food is exceptional, service outstanding and the atmosphere is so comfortable, utterly unpretentious. Definitely skip the latest, coolest concept and dine here instead!
John, Thank you for the great review! Will pass these words on to the staff. Hope to see you in soon!
Thank you for another fabulous year and New Year's Eve Celebration! We are fortunate to have this exceptional neighborhood bistro. It's great for special occasions as well as for weekly dining. Fresh, high quality ingredients, perfectly prepared with well-balanced and delicious dishes paired with professional and friendly service is Marla's secret to success. We look forward to dining with you again and again in 2020!
Ruth! Always great to see you and Liza on the reservation list! Thank you for the kind words. Will share with the staff and we hope to see you in again before the wine tastings!
As always, our meal at Babette's Cafe was outstanding in every respect. We were there for New Years eve celebrating with our granddaughters for the tenth year in a row.
Food was great. Service was disappointing ...servers not very knowledgeable about the menu or wine. Tables crammed together. No dress code enforced.
I'm Terribly sorry this was your experience here at Babette's. We do try to educate the servers on our wine list as best we can. We will look into this matter.
This was a superb dinner in a lovely dining room setting. Each dish we had was outstanding. Please keep in mind this is a chef driven menu. Menu items will always reflect what is in season. Cuisine is classic European
Thank you for the review! Marla is the Chef/Owner and is always looking to keep her menu in season and fresh! Hope to see you in again!
Babette’s is our go to place for great food and service in a warm and comfortable setting. Marla Adams, the owner/chef works her magic everyday, finding the best ingredients and always supplementing her seasonal offerings.
Dinner at Babette’s was great and the noise level allowed for great conversation. The only downside this time was that we were seated by the door going out to the patio area, which sometimes allowed cold air to come in. Other than that, service was fantastic, food was fantastic, and value is fantastic. I’d recommend Babette’s to anyone that is looking for great food and service with a relatively quiet atmosphere for a great value.
Consistently good. We always have to have the Piroshkis and the H Mynors Zinfandel. We both had the tenderloin this night and they were cooked perfectly.
Those are some of our favorite items! Thank you for the compliments and we look forward to seeing you soon!
Always reliable with great seasonal dishes
Always good food, good value, wonderful staff and atmosphere. Can't be beat!
That's what we aim for! Thank you for the review!
Met friends for dinner. Chose Babette's based on quite a few great online reviews. We were not disappointed! They let us choose between an inside table or on the enclosed heated deck. We chose the deck because it was a little less noisy. Loved the lap blankets available if needed. Nice touch!! Fantastic atmosphere, top notch service, incredible food and a really nice drink menu. We had a late seating yet weren't rushed to leave. Overall, one of the best dinners I've had in Atlanta yet.
Thank you for adding to our great reviews! We're so happy to hear that you had a great time, and we look forward to your next visit!
Another wonderful evening at Marla's house of joy. Very accommodating server, as we awaited the arrival of our 4th guest from the airport. I love bringing guests here because I know they will fall in love, as we have. Thanks to Marla and the entire Babette's team for another memorable year of food, wine, and hospitality!
Thank you for the review and for bringing in new guests! We are always happy to see new faces. Will let the team know how much you enjoyed it!
Consistently one of the best restaurants in Atlanta. Always love going there.
And we always love having you come in! Thanks for the review!
Continues to be consistently wonderful. The food is outstanding. The service is spectacular. The atmosphere is warm and comfortable.
Thanks for the review Stuart! Always love having you all in!
Had a lovely solo dinner. Great service, amazing food. Babette’s never disappoints.
